Does foundation with spf in it give anyone spots?

I've just recently started using clinique's city block with spf25. I noticed after a few days I was getting some spots, some quite sore under the skin.

I went back to my usual clinique foundation & my skin has settled down again although the spots haven't quite gone yet they are smaller & less sore.

Has anyone found this using the city block? I'm wondering if it's the spf ingredient that caused it. Thanks

Yes,I can't use day creams because if the SPF, always irritates me.

Thanks Dame, jusr wondering what to use then as sun protection on face?

I don't use anything, just keep out of the sun as much as I can. Not ideal but I seen to be allergic to everything!

Yes, I think mine does. I changed recently which has coincided with a breakout. I hope I'm going to get used to it though. Spots stopped after about a month last year.

I am very sensitive to caster oil which is in loads of foundations, but I use a specific sun cream (biore watery essence) now, as I don't think I use enough foundation on my face for protection.

spf breaks me out above spf 15
The chemicals are just very viscous feeling so I guess that is why
