I remember all these sunscreen discussions years back here. What is the general consensus currently: which sunsceen filters come out 'best' also protecting against long wave-length UVA.

 

I've used LRP with Mexoplex filters for years, but the endocrine disruptors cause me some concern. On the other hand I've tried ZnO sunblocks and they made me look like the Phantom of the Opera. I really don't want to try that again, and I've always felt the sunscreen of La Roche Posay gave me better protection, also since I could use a lot of it without looking too much like a white clown. But perhaps there are better sunscreen filters on the market nowadays?

Tinosorb S & Tinosorb M.

 

Last week, I tried SVR50 + ULTRA MAX & SVR Sebiaclear Crème SPF50 in a drug store; both of them were not greasy.  I will ask for sample, if there is any.

ZnO has protection even into visible light, same for Tinosorb M, but both will result in some white cast, if protection is broad enough to reach into visible light it will be visible. Also, while ZnO has very broad protection, the actual protection factor is not very high. What I would do is add some antioxidants (e.g. ceferulic) to your sunscreen which should add some protection for UVA without being aesthetically unpleasant.

What are the ingredients of these screens Happy Lemon? I can't find anything on line. EDIT: Sorry, managed to find it. 

 

I am currently using Bioderma Photoderm screens and am investigating LRP, hopefully I'll be able to find one that isn't horribly sticky. Reapplication is an issue (on the rare occasions I am actually outdoors for long) for me as well. My skin tolerates one application but re-application every two hours starts to make it feel pretty sticky and ghastly and, consequently, I can break out. I remain to be confused why why LRP screens need re-application every two hours if they are theoretically meant to protect for 6+ hours and are said to be so stable?

 

What is the general consensus these days guys? I trawled through the old sunscreen threads but it gets a bit mind blowing. Is CE Ferulic plus strong antiox serums under zinc oxide screens such as Burnout going to give us as good protection as the European chemical screens? 

 

What a bummer Eva Victoria's screen never came to light, she seems to have fallen off the map. I fear it is a write off :(

One thing you can try to do is layer the very white sunscreen with a foundation (with or without SPF) that is darker than your skin, although that will probably require some experimenting. foundation first, sunscreen on top most likely.

 I'm guessing there are also various other cosmetic products with pigmentation you can try to blend in with the sunscreen. But I also presume there are various sunscreens out there that are good but have added pigment in them

 

Personally I find the white look enjoyable of the Zinc/titanium sunscreens (I have used one from Paulas Choice with an SPF of 30 that is very light, skin balancing ultra sheer something), but I use them moderately so the actual protection is probably nowhere great and I don't look completely like a ghost, meanwhile I also try to avoid the sun despite being outside quite a bit in summer, and I'm very white and basically can't get brown.

The zinc oxide of Paula's Choice is of nano one.  According to EWG, nano Zinc Oxide does not provide much UVA protection.

Japanese sunblocks use a combination of physical and chemical filters (uvinul T, Uvinul A, Tinosorb M, Tinosorb S, zinc oxide, etc.). They also came up with a new UV filter stabilizer called RonaCare AP, which is an antioxidant that stays in your skin for a long time. Many Japanese sunblocks contain alcohol, however. Some don't.

 

European sunblocks still rule, but most of them are greasy:(

I don't find it to be in the least. It dries matt too.

I'm still using Burnout Face and Body. I have not found (or tried) any other sunscreen in the past 3 years that has the consistency to where it disappears so gracefully into my skin this one does. 

 

And it seems to be working relatively well. 

 

I would however like to add an antioxidant moisturizer under it. But which?
