On the hunt for something with a properly high SPF, that won't irritate slightly sensitive skin, won't break the bank, and won't end up migrating into my eyes and making them water all day long... last one I tried was a Clinique one, have avoided putting it on anywhere near my eyes but it still seems to end up irritating, and made my skin a bit red too. Look forward to some good suggestions!
I bought the LRP Anthelios anti shine last year for under make up and am disappointed. It's very thick and white. I've gone back to Clinique City Block spf 40 but am about to try Bare Minerals mineral sun screen / Primer spf 50.
Ah ok, I haven't tried the anti shine one. The LRP ultra light fluid is great, light and no white cast at all. I've oily skin and it doesn't leave a shine. The clinique city block was far too thick and glooky for me.
I use Mii cosmetics Skin Loving Bb cream its spf 45. It's amazing. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. Great natural look too. It def works, I got caught out one day being out in the sun longer than intended, my shoulders and neck were burnt but Face was absolutely fine with it on. It's £25 but you only need less than a pea sized amount so tube lasts ages.
I also love their Eye BB cream - covers dark circles as well as a normal concealer, keeps eye makeup in place and again no bother for my sensitive eyes.
