Help me choose a sunscreen!


My skin type is combination skin with active but not severe acne (I am clog and breakout prone!). First of all, should it be chemical or mineral sunscreen? I really don't want it to feel like a heavy mask on my face, and I would love more of a matte finish than a dewy one. Because my T-zone gets very oily in hot weather, I'd like to find a sunscreen that won't turn my face into a grease pond after 30 minutes in 25 °C weather. (Plus points if it will actually moisturize my skin, but this one is optional.)

Right now, I have heard so much good stuff about the next sunscreens: Beauty of Joseon, SKIN1004, isntree hyaluronic acid watery sun gel (the one with the full white tube and blue cap), COSRX aloe vera sunscreen, and Anthelios UVMUNE 400. What can you say and tell about them?

Hi, I always buy my sunscreen products in pharmacy from Avène, Bioderma, La Roche-Posay. They are fragrance free and do not irritate the skin. Also all good under makeup.


I have super sensitive acne prone skin, and all chemical sunscreens give me a rash. Finding a good mineral sunscreen was frustrating!

I really like cerave’s sheer tint mineral sunscreen. It doesn’t irritate or break me out, but the shade is too dark for me.

kopari beauty mineral sunscreen is also a great one that doesn’t make my skin react at all, but the finish is a little oily. It does well under makeup, but requires a setting powder over your foundation if you wear makeup.

Recently I’ve started mixing the two, giving the perfect shade tinted mineral sunscreen. it makes my skin glow!

I’ve also heard amazing things about Dime’s wonderscreen (also mineral) but I haven’t tried it yet.
