Facial Sunscreen you’ll want to wear



My skin hates sunscreen, but I KNOW I have to wear it and even more now summer is creeping slowly up on us. Most sun creams can make sensitive skin types break out, they just contain a few things that can cause breakouts. I actually think my face is allergic to sunscreen as it tends to bring me out in dry patches and burns slightly. There are a lot of different suncreams out there for the face but for me, they are just repackaged versions of regular sun screen.

Saying that Benefit Dream Screen is one of my all time favourite sunscreen products designed specifically the face. I love its dry matte feel, it kinda feels like a primer that a slick sun lotion. Apply a generous amount before applying any foundation or any base products and it’ll fully protect the skin from the sun. It’s also SPF50 which is ideal protection for the face! Packaged in a teeny vintage inspired blue packaging it’s a really eye catching and cute product that while it doesn’t scream “Summer SPF” it’s a good all year rounder.

  2. I find sunscreen so annoying! I've got a few brands that I know do not work one bit on me and I always end up with sunburn when I use them! It's so annoying! Especially when you've used them correctly and you end up looking like you haven't put any on! Do love the packaging on this one though, might have to check it out! Em xx

  3. Perhaps you need to look at the composition of the sunscreen you use. Choose one that contains Zinc oxide ( great healer for skins easily suffering from breakouts ).x

  7. I adore how pretty the packaging is! I actually really love the Neutrogena facial sunscreen - that stuff is so easy to wear under makeup or without.

  8. I can't wear anything too think on mine as it feels clogged and covered, so this sound like a nice lightweight version for sensitive skins!

  11. I realy like this one, too. i also did a blog post on this a few weeks ago. Although I still don't like the feeling of sunscreen on my skin, this one is the best I got around trying so far. But I have heard good things about the La Roche Possay ones too.

  22. I only use SPF 50 so it's hard for me to find sunblock as most of them are normally SPF 15. I can't believe this is a high one, really wanna get it now! I love Benefit so I'm sure I'll love it x

  33. Wow, what a cute package! I didn't even know these kind of products existed, I always tend to use the oily sunscreen I use for my body on my face too, which leads my face to getting so sticky and oily and get me some itch-breakouts! xo Romy

  39. A lot of chemical sunscreens contain chemicals that sensitive skin types can react to, even ones designed for sensitive skins! I have the exact same issue and have reacted to things really unexpectedly. For lots of people the only solution is a physical sunscreen (the kind that sits on the skin and is really white) but this looks like it might work too! I'll have to check out the indredients and see if they're different to the others I've tried :)
