Ultrasun 30, available from Waitrose/Ocado, the only thing that my eczema hands can tolerate, and I have tried SO many. I've got a facial version and a body version and both are great, they don't leave the sticky waterproof layer that gives me and the DCs a heat rash with most of the ones you get in Boots.
I am horrifically allergic to suncreams. I used to be used by a medical facility to test products designed for sensitive skin and I reacted to them all.
I can, however, use Simple's sun cream designed specifically for faces without any problems whatsoever. It comes in high factors too. It also sinks in matt so you don't feel like a greasy blob all day.
Ultrasun you can get from Ocado, if anyone you know has Ocado deliveries? Actually, if you sign up to Ocado, you can usually get voucher codes for fairly hefty discounts on your first order, so you could get your Ultrasun, do the weeks shopping and get the discount.
The Ultrasun goes on very matt, feels a bit like a face primer. I certainly don't have the feeling I am wearing sun cream at all when I use it, either on body or face (they sell separate ones for each).
Oh and it doesn't have that white titanium dioxide layer that takes ages to rub in either which some of the more natural ones have (not sure if it has it in it or not without going upstairs to look at the bottle)
The sunsense one we have is the toddler milk actually, for my eczema prone DD, so I haven't used the ones for grown-ups! But the toddler one rubs into skin much more pleasantly than any other lotion I have ever used. I buy it from amazon.
