So the first two sunscreens, the Neutrogena ultra sheer and the Equate Ultra protection, both contain Avobenzone, which can be irritating in the way you describe. The Elta MD doesn't contain avobenzone. If it irritates you though, then don't use it.

If you're sensitive to avobenzone, which seems possible, then you should look for sunscreens that contain Zinc and Titanium as their active ingredients, or have other ingredients that do the same thing as avobenzone but aren't irritating (Tinosorb, Uvinul, etc.). These ingredients are generally not available in the US.

So your options are to look for a physical sunscreen in the US, or to order a chemical sunscreen from overseas. The physical ones are hard to rub in and DO leave a cast, but you can find them in stores. Any brand of baby sunscreen will work, or you can use Neutrogena sheer zinc dry touch. Another one that may or may not work for you is the Australian Gold tinted botanicals sunscreen. The tint may be too light for you, but it should look better than plain white physical sunscreen.

The chemical ones are more cosmetically elegant. You can find Japanese sunscreens that rub in well and contain no avobenzone, but they take for freaking ever to ship to the US. Some favorites are the Biore Aqua rich watery essence, and Nivea sun protect water gel.

I use Shiseido Senka (orange tube), which is great for me, but some people don't like the silicone in it.

I also use the Nivea body sunscreen, which I proved to myself works very well after taking a 3-mile walk on the beach. I could definitely see where I didn't apply it...

Edit: Shiseido & Nivea links (Amazon)

Hey friends! I'm pretty much a sunscreen virgin and I could use some help.

I've read through the sidebar, done a ton of searching through old posts, and have opened probably 100 amazon tabs today, but I still feel lost. Here's some relevant information, if it helps:

  • 26 years old female, living in Oregon.
  • Don't go outdoors much.
  • Not really concerned with anti-aging stuff, much more concerned with preventing skin damage/cancer and whatnot.
  • Pretty normal skin, dry/flaky forehead and back/boob acne-prone
  • I don't THINK alcohol in products is a huge problem for me? The skin around my eyes gets fairly pissy fairly quickly, haha, but it seems unrelated from any skincare products I use.
  • Rarely wear makeup, not hugely concerned about whitecast but am nervous about looking greasy
  • Lastly and most pertinent to my current situation, I'd really like to find as big a bottle as I can for a reasonable price (10-15 USD if possible); I really like the idea of the popular Asian products but the bottles are sooo tiny, I can't afford to buy them every month. If I can get a bigass bottle of sunscreen, I have my own little travel bottle that I can put some in for commuting around town.

    With all that in mind... is there something I can find? I've heard US sunscreens aren't great, and though it'd be fantastic if I could just go to a local grocery store and grab a bottle, I'm willing to order online if there just aren't any suitable US brands.

    Please help? :(

    ETA these are the two most promising ones I've found so far:
    Nivea Perfect Water Gel and Skin Aqua Super Moisture Gel

    Still a little small (around 4 oz, I'd really like to find something AMERICAN-SIZED lol, like 10/12 oz or larger if possible) but better. Would one of these be okay? Are there better options?

This is the best sunscreen ever, IMO. it goes on like a light lotion and isnt greasy at all.

Nivea Super Water Gel

Skin Aqua Super Moisture Gel

Are these what you’re referring to? I wanna look into them!!

I’ve heard physicals are better for your skin(?), but every single one I’ve tried turned me purple from the white cast. I don’t have a problem with it on my makeup days, but I find it a hassle just to wear makeup so I don’t look like Tinky Winky on days when I want my skin to breathe or I’m only running errands.

u/theeternalnoob · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Quite honestly, the most cost-effective option I've found for this is the regular drugstore aerosol type sunscreens, which tend to rub off quickly on me because I sweat a lot. My current alternative is lots of UV protective clothing, which is more of an investment, but more comfortable and less of a hassle long-term.

These Nivea and Skin Aqua options also get good reviews.

u/sweet_firefly · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I love this sunscreen that I found on amazon. The shipping takes a while since it comes from outside the US, but I love it. Doesn't have a strong smell and is light enough for everyday use. I use it primarily on my face and arms. I've had no problems using it under my light (powder) makeup.

u/whatsabrooin · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Normal days I've used the Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel Spf35/Pa +++. I really like this one for every day. Works great under makeup and doesn't irritate my skin.

Recently bought the Biore Uv Aqua Rich Smooth Watery Gel Spf50 + / Pa ++++ to try this summer. The bottle is smaller than the Nivea so not sure if I'll use this on my body...

I definitely use a different set of sunscreens when I go to the beach or plan on any physical activity. If I go in the water, I'll wait to dry down a bit before re-applying. Last summer I used the All-around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk SPF50/PA+++ for face.
Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF30 for my body. I used this combo when I climbed a small mountain and it took about 5 hours up and down. Didn't re-apply and didn't burn even though I was sweating like a damn roasted pig.

For acne, it really depends on your specific acne triggers. Unless you know for sure you tend to break out from chemical UV filters, I wouldn't overthink it

That said, chemical sunscreens do tend to cause irritation for those with sensitive skin, although sometimes it's due to specific UV filters rather than the whole category. If you have sensitive skin your best bet is physical sunscreens, although it's a hell of a lot harder to find one without a white cast. Etude House Sunprise Airy Finish SPF 50 PA+++ is one physical sunscreen that may not have a white cast, ymmv

However, chemical UV filters don't always cause irritation - it really depends on the ingredients and your skin! Check out this review of a chemical sunscreen from someone who can usually only tolerate physical ones. So it might be worth investigating some chem options as well - you may not experience irritation, and if you do, you can start to narrow down which specific ingredient(s) are causing it so you can avoid them in the future.

And if you don't have particularly sensitive skin, well, I'd definitely opt for chemical sunscreens

Some recs (based on reviews stating that they had no white cast, ymmv):

u/tacoboutluv · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I'm looking for a sunscreen that doesn't contribute to my oily skin but also doesn't dry me out (do sunscreens that meet both criteria exist??) I have narrowed it down to two options after reading through a lot of reviews/threads on this. Has anyone tried either or both and can help me make a decision? I am debating between:

Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF50


Nivea Perfect Water Gel SPF 35 P+++ (I wanted to find the Sun Super Water Gel SPF 50 but this is the only one available)

Skin type: quite oily and dehydrated (sometimes flaky around the eyes)

Country: Canada - currently cold harsh winters

Top skin concern: finding sunscreen that is not greasy but also not drying

Current routine: Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel Cream as day moisturizer; great for oil control but not moisturizing enough. I don't wear foundation/face makeup either so no whitecast would be ideal.

Thank you!

I'm going to stick with Nivea Japan Perfect Water Gel SPF35/PA+++ Pump 140g. Even though it's a little more money for less product, it doesn't sting when it gets into your eyes. It's also available on Amazon and easier than ordering from Rakuten.
