    Default No idea where to post this, but best sunscreen?

    I will be going on a holiday at the end of the year which will involve a lot of sun and beaches. I brought a cheap 1 litre bottle of sunscreen recently and have used it once, never wanting to use it again. It is gluggy, oily, sticky and doesn't rub in, leaving me looking gross. It also recommends two layers of application which makes everything worse.

    What is a good sunscreen that is very protective and when applied, your skin looks good. I don't want a foundation because my boys will have a whinge about that lol.

    Is there anyone with really sensitive skin that can recommend a good sunscreen? Cost doesn't matter, I just dont want to look shiny and gross this summer.

    I second invisible zinc! It comes in 'junior' too, which I much prefer, it's not as thick as the original which tends to leave you a bit ghosty! (IMO)
    But I just have to think about the sun to get burnt and this saves me every time!

    Ive been using banana boat sensitive on my son who has very sensitive skin. We haven't had any issues with his skin flaring up like it does with most suncream. I also find it rubs in well and doesn't feel greasy on my hands.

    I also agree with Invisible Zinc.

    But by far the easiest sunscreen I have EVER used is the Dermalogica solar spray. It's a dry oil so there's no grease, is in a pump pack so is super easy to get on and isn't cold when it goes on (which my kids absolutely hate). I find I spray it on really quickly and it covers extremely well. DD2 has pale skin and has never had a burn, and we live 500m from the beach so go there a lot.

    Babies Only brand, even my fishing mad husband thinks it's awesome as he only applies once and it is non greasy.

    I've used invisible inc before but I could never wash it off. Even after a good scrub, my face would still be white from it.
