Sunscreen help!

Hey, everyone! I have oily skin (prone to dehydration if that is a thing) that is generally very tolerant with acids and stuff like that, but it gets sensitive with fragrances! The stuggle is real because almost all fragrance-free sunscreens are aimed towards those with dry and sensitive skin and thus they make me look extremely greasy. I have used some chemical lightweight options like the La Roche Posay UV mune 400 no parfum and the Garnier Ambre Solaire anti dark spots but I found them kind of drying (my face was feeling tight especially around the eye area). I figured out that this was proably due to the denatured alcohol both of those had, high in the consentration. Some others I have tried are two mineral-only Avene sunscreens but the white cast was so bad I couldn't leave the house looking like that! So, to sum up, I'm looking for a fragrance-free (and essential oil-free) and alcohol free (or at least with a lower alcohol concentration) that doesn't leave a white cast and doesen't make you look greasy. Also, my skin is sensitive to too much hyaluronic acid, so preferably no hyaluronic acid as well. I know I'm asking for too much probably, but if you have any recommendations please share!

I’d suggest checking out the Murad line - their spf stuff blends in lightweight like a true moisturizer and isn’t drying. However, I’m not sure if they have a no fragrance option.

another option would be to blend something thick that might leave a white sheen like the Eucerin day SPF, mix it with a lightweight moisturizer or BB cream that you already are happy with so that the spf product is less abrasive. Just my thoughts! I’m deff not a professional

I love Beauty of Joseon Rice and Probiotic, a Korean sunscreen. It doesn’t feel oily to me but I am on the normal to dry side.

Thank you! I have read a lot about this sunscreen but I wasn't sure if it was good for oily skin. It's maybe time to find out!

I like using mineral powder sunscreen on top to take off the shine - I find that almost all sunscreen do need it on my skin

I've been hearing really good things about Coola sunscreen but a bit to pricy for me, not sure if Sephora carries it but if you have one near they'll sample you some??

If you find please post.
