Sun lotion for oily skin?

(10 Posts)

I burn easily in the sun, so sun lotion is a must, but I have oily skin and really hate that greasy feeling that sun lotion gives. And it gives me spots on my face adding more oil! Does anyone know of a non-greasy sun lotion?
PS I am not a teenager, I am in late 30s!

this - saw this the other day which looked a good idea. I use their spf for dry skin which is lovely and very like a face cream

Biore watery essence is brilliant on the face. SPF 50

Sali Hughes did a great article on this a while ago, hope I have linked this ok as I'm a bit inept!

Beauty: sunscreens for oily skin

On my face I use the Ideal Soleil one by Vichy. It's non greasy, matifying and anti-blemishes, does the job without costing a fortune and comes in SPF 30 and 50.

Im fair and never burn anymore using lancaster, the spray milk is fab and good for my oily skin

This is brilliant. It applies just like foundation, it feels and looks like foundation. I used it in 30c weather for a fortnight in Laos and Cambodia and came back as pale as when I left.

Does anyone have recommendations for something similar for the body? Sunscreens bring my arms (and sometimes chest) out in a not-quite rash but bumpy slightly red skin. Body lotions do the same so I just avoid using them on my arms.
I don't think it is KP as my arms are smooth during the rest of the year. I have tried most of the high street brands and tried different types of formulations but I'm sure there must be something out there for me. Any ideas? Needs to be SPF 30 or above.

I just bought this one from Neutrogena while I was in the US to try. Bit more pricey in the UK, but available from amazon.
