Ultrasun - the no pigmentation kind - did sweet FA for me: I even developed new patches (wasn't sunbathing, just in a hot environment).

The only thing that has worked for me is this www.spacenk.com/uk/en_GB/sun-tan/suncare/face-suncream/photo-regul-face-cream-MUK200017274.html

I use this as I don't mind an evenly brown face, but it bothers me when the hyper-pigmentation that I invest in time and money keeping at bay comes out in blotches and leaves me looking patchy. If you want to prevent any skin darkening at all, including your hp (whether visible or not) they also do a total block.

This is very light, unlike the ultrasun, and yellowish, and absorbs really easily. I'm really prone to whiteheads, shiniess and blocked pores, but have never had a breakout with this.

I switched to Ultrasun when it came out, as it's much cheaper - but as well as not preventing patchiness, I found it felt very heavy on my skin (don't usually wear foundation, so I am quite sensitive to my skin feeling clogged) and gave me quite painful large spots on my throat in particular.
