For under make up etc, not for lying on beaches I mean.

I hear MN klaxons about Clinique city block, just wondered before splashing out if there are any cheaper/better ones?

I'm using this but it only has 3 star for UVA and I like 5 star, I'll be switching a sainsbury or superdrug one as their own brand stuff is BUAV approved and I don't like animal testing.

Clinique doesn't display any UVA ratings on their city block, I used it for ages, I also don't like the fish collagen in it now I'm vegetarian.

I like the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 70. I like the fact that the spf is really high and it doesn't cause spots. I can't tell its on under my make up too which is a big bonus.

Depends on skin type really. I've got combination skin with an oily t-zone so most sunscreens are just going to make my face an unholy greasy mess.
My fav sunscreens are Vichy Capital Soleil Mattifying Fluid Dry Touch SPF 50 which works nicely under most foundations, and Dr Denese SPF30 Defense Day Cream. That one works well under my foundations, but also is tinted and has quite good coverage too so I wear it mostly on days when I don't want to wear foundation eg on hols etc. Difficult to get hold of in UK though.

I've just bought this from dermalogica. Not greasy at all. Is a white lotion but doesn't make you look chalky.
