Getting married abroad next week and looking for a sun lotion that isn't going to make me break out in spots for my wedding!
Any recommendations please?

I am a bit of a suncream avoider for this very reason - but I find that the ones designed for facial use are better.

Currently using the No.7 Protect and Perfect spf30 (with a tint). It's a bit ££ but is nice on, and hasn't caused breakouts.

Thanks! I've spent months clearing my face and will be really upset if I have a face full of spots on my wedding day so am willing to pay for it

I use this one. It's not shiny at all and doesn't make my skin break out.

Sculpturesong, I had the worst reaction (developed SEVERE acne) from the effaclar duo so am too weary to try any of their products again. Thanks for the reply though!

Kendodds, Brill, i will have a look online smile

I'm not sure if they still do it but I have a good SPF sun / face cream with a tint in in from Dermalogica . It was excellent .

Do you know what ingredient breaks you out? I'm much more confident now I know products containing caster or olive oil break me out.
You can look on cosdna and see if there is a common factor in those products you are sensitive too.
I like the biore watery essence, I buy it from Amazon for about £7

I use Coola SPF 30 mineral sunscreen, it's matte and brilliant under makeup!

Thanks, ladies!
I have no idea what causes me to break out...bare minerals doesn't but that's about it!
