The ultimate facial sunscreen?

I read on here all the time that using a sunscreen every day is the best thing for your skin. Can someone please recommend one that isn't greasy, doesn't look chalky and doesn't affect how makeup sits in the skin? I already use moisturiser and primer before makeup (sometimes serum if I remember) And the thought of yet another layer of stuff on my skin always seems like too much. But I am ready to embrace the sunscreen, has anyone found one that fulfils the criteria? Tia

I use Clinique city block which is SPF 40, I think it's pretty good - make up goes well on the top and definitely doesn't go chalky.

Biore watery essence. Factor 50, as it says, watery, no white cast, no greasy. I'm v fair and wore it everyday in Egypt, including swimming, and never burnt once.

I agree with justawesome. For me the Anthelios is the best and I've tried a good fair few. I found that my foundation didn't go on well over the Biore so wouldn't use that again.

Anthelios is a third off here as well at the moment
