I've recently developed vitiligo, I have patches on my chest, arms and hands.
I know need to start wearing sun screen on these exposed areas everyday, especially through the summer months.
Can anyone recommend a good, non greasy one that won't mark work clothes etc?

I love calypso dry oil spray and it's only £3 from home bargains. Honestly hands down the best sunscreen I have ever used. It's the only one that I don't burn with and it goes on easily and isn't greasy at all.

The oil is really non greasy? I need one that completely sinks in, although you did say dry oil! smile

I use UltraSun spf 30 or 50 (as I have polymorphic light eruption) both are good, 50 leaves a sight residue but 30 is amazing. Definitely recommend!

I don't believe there is a better one out there.

Thank you for the recommendations grin

My doc actually recommended ultrasun himself, when I saw him this morning.
I'm going hunting for some later today. Amazon looks to be quite reasonable, or is there anywhere else that is any cheaper? I'm going to be using lots of it everyday!

It does sound silly that oil is dry but it's a spray and very very light. Absorbs straight away and doesn't feel greasy at all.

QVC often have ultra sun

Calypso is fab. Use it on the family too, theyve Never burnt with it and its not oily at all.

It looks a bit similar to P20 which is also a type of oil that absorbs really well, although I'm not sure if it marks clothes or not. It didn't mark my clothes when I used it this weekend for the first time.

I gave it to my friend who has eczema to try out and she got on fine with it.

Calypso dry oil is amazing! I would get stuff stick to every other suncream out there, irritating my skin.
Calypso. .. no burn, nothing stuck.

Ultrasun - I use the Face 30 as my moisturiser in summer and we all use the big bottles (25 up to 50 depending on who it's on) for holidays.

Non sticky. Sinks in. Non chalky.

Oo fabulous, thank you all for your suggestions!

I tried a boots soltan one yesterday (saw it was on offer so nothing to lose) that claimed to be 'dry touch', but it still left that tacky feeling.

Will give calypso and ultrasun a whirl smile

Thanks again

P20 is great-non greasy and one application lasts all day. Waterproof too and you can get it in factor fifty.
