If so what is it!?
ive tried ultrasun, cetaphil moisturiser spf 50 and CeraVe spf 25. Theyre all really greasy.
I have acne prone skin so desperate for a high spf that doesnt clog pores or look shiny and greasy

Just to update I ordered the biore watery essence and he heliocare 360 gel. Not got the biore stuff yet but the heliocare gel arrived and I am very impressed with it. Not greasy at all and spreads so well! Now to see if my skin likes it too!

La Roche posay anthelios gets my vote too. Currently on offer in Boots. Only one that doesn't irritate my skin and make my eyes water.

I also like la roche posay. It doesn't react with my skin (where others give me pimples), nonwhite sheen, stays on for ages and doesn't feel greasy.

Another vote for biore. Buy it on amazon

Where do you buy biore watery essence?

Another vote for Heliocare, nothing else comes close!

I'm intrigued by the spf powder. I hate topping up sunscreen when wearing makeup.

Dermalogica. But it's pricey. I have super oily skin and all the rest just turn me into an oil slick.

I use SunSense after it was recommended by a dermatologist. It's spf 50, but really light and not greasy / heavy on the skin.

I have very fair, greasy skin and work outdoors. I wear La Roche Posay Anthelios 50. I've tried lots and this is doesn't clog pores and is very effective.

I second La Roche Posay. I think it is described as non-comedogenic which is why I bought it.

Just to add that when I’m spending the day out in the sun, I top up my Biore throughout the day with Susan Posnick brush on block spf 30 powder so I’m not rubbing cream into my make up.

Wow thank you loads of brilliant suggestions. Now just to decide which one to try! Thank you again

I'm an oily type too and I like the Heliocare 360 but it does have a 'glow' you might not like. Try the Mac Prep & Prime SPF 5O - think that's a proper mat.

Another vote for heliocare oil free gel- it’s great 👍

Thisismyusernamefornow Tue 14-May-19 09:33:02

I use the body shop one. Good value and does a great job. Wear it under make up etc.

Biore is great for not too much sun exposure but I don't think it's particularly long lasting (think the word is photo stable). Amazing light and clean texture, drawback for me is the high alcohol content. Still use it regularly though grin

The heliocare 360 gel oil-free was recommended to me by a dermatologist. I should probably give it a try. Currently use Anthelios for sport but don't like it much.

snaxinyourslacks Tue 14-May-19 07:30:27

Heliocare 360 is lovely and non greasy. I use it as my daily moisturiser now.

SuperSange Tue 14-May-19 07:29:07

I've had a new one from Avon for a couple of weeks now. It's matte and not greasy at all. Sits nicely under foundation or is fine on its own.

Body shop SPF50 - fantastic

TheChineseChicken Tue 14-May-19 07:23:23

I always recommend IS Clinical Eclipse, which comes in tinted or not. It's really light and doesn't clog my skin. I was recommended to use it after I had treatment for sun pigmentation in my face

La Roche Posay Anthelios 50+
Invisible ultra resistant shake fluid

It’s brilliant. When you first put it on you might worry it will be sticky, but give it a few min and it completely sinks in. Think it’s about £15 in Boots. I wear it everyday and have no problem with clogged skin.

The Ordinary brand ones aren't mega greasy but they do leave a very obvious white sheen, even when rubbed in my face is a shade whiter. I don't use makeup though so if you did it wouldn't be as obvious.

BigButtons Tue 14-May-19 07:18:17

I found the watery essence didn't offer nearly enough protection. I burnt on it and I am a religious user of sunscreen.

I found an amazing one in the body shop the other day. SPF 50 feels dry to the touch
