3 Sunscreens I Used This Week: La Roche-Posay SPF 100, Altruist SPF 50, Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50
Here are my thoughts on 3 sunscreens I’ve been using. They are La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100, Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50, and Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100:
I used La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100 twice this week. With this sunscreen, I love the texture of this sunscreen. It’s soft, melts into the skin, absorbs nicely, moisturizes, and leaves my skin feeling so supple afterward. If LRP made a moisturizer like this (without the SPF), I would buy it. Moisturizers never work on my skin, but this product works when I experience dry skin from my acne products. I always enjoy applying this product to my skin. As for the SPF, I still wish it wasn’t a chemical sunscreen. It stung my eyes. I wish it was mineral-based instead. But it would have a white cast. Oh well, I wouldn’t mind. I didn’t have any issues besides stinging of the eyes. I still won’t purchase it again after I finish it because I’m trying to move away from chemical-based sunscreens. I can’t use it daily. I develop headaches and other health issues because of it. I can’t wait to be done with it. At the rate I’m going, it’s going to take a while.
Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50:
I was going to stick to the Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50 at first, but it started to feel very sticky and greasy on my skin. It also didn’t leave my skin feeling moisturized either. So do I have to put up with the stickiness and greasiness of this sunscreen? Also, it doesn’t provide any moisture when it’s sitting on my skin, and when I remove it? Nah. I love the high SPF (UVB and UVA), but it’s not working for me. It burns my eyes as well. It makes my skin appear extremely shiny and awful. I’m going to use the rest of this sunscreen on my body. Just not my face. I developed a few pimples from it too. Pus-filled ones. sigh I tried to make it work. Maybe I’ll bring it back when I think it could work for me again, lol.
Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50:
I currently don’t have a to-go-to mineral sunscreen. I thought I would give Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50 a try. Yes, again. It’s not a 100% mineral sunscreen but a hybrid. But whatever. It could work, haha. I really don’t know what to use anymore. If it works, it works. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. The sunscreen feels silky and smooth. Hmmm, silicones! My skin loved it! It made the texture of my skin appear smoother and so glassy. My skin was glowing! Ha! I really liked the final result of it besides the white cast. I was able to put up with the white cast since I’m pretty pale anyway. That didn’t bother me much. I used this sunscreen 3 days in a row due to being outdoors for a bit. It seems like I can’t use it that often. I noticed some tiny blemishes. Ugh! Yeah, if you are acne-prone, this might cause some clogged pores. At least they weren’t cystic acne or a cluster of pimples. The pimples vanished the next day. I guess I can use this sunscreen on and off like my other sunscreens. My skin doesn’t like any sunscreens. I’ll use whatever I have for the time being.
And I’m still in search of the perfect sunscreen (which doesn’t exist), haha.
