Great Smell, Good Protection and Great Value
March 04, 2019
If most sunscreens make your face look and feel insanely greasy, try any of these sunscreen lotions. These two I would like to recommend to everyone.
1: Thinksport Sport Sunscreen
I chose this sunscreen because of the high content of zinc oxide. It does work very well. After two weeks in Mexico, my very pale skin did not get burnt at all. However, I did find it a bit frustrating to work with compared to chemical sunscreens I've used in the past. It is very thick and takes a while to spread into your skin. I found it best to apply a layer to my entire body before heading to the beach. Reapplying at the beach was difficult at times, especially since I was wearing a black bathing suit which it left a white cast on. I think it will just take me some time to get used to using such a high content mineral sunscreen. Despite the difficulties, I will continue to use it because I feel it's much better for both myself and the environment!
2: Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Sunscreen Lotion
I'm very pale and burn like no one's business, but the first time I used this I was surprisingly okay! The places I didn't get well enough burnt a little bit not badly at all. It's a decent sized bottle and I go through a lot of it, but it's worth the protection. Great, inexpensive sunscreen that has a pleasant smell and goes on smoothly without being heavy or greasy. It reapplies nicely and comes in a large 240mL bottle. Best of all. it doesn't have oxybenzone! Aside from a somewhat unattractive bottle, this sunscreen is a great, basic easy to apply chemical sunscreen. It smells really nice too.
Both have been gone through my personal experience. Try any of them and feel the difference.
