Finally found a sunscreen I can stick with, it's an Anthelios that's new to the UK, "La Roche Posay Anthelios Light Fluid SPF50+".

As the name suggests, it's really light and practically non whitening!! Dancing A completely different animal to the other Anthelios products but with the same superior UVA protection.

WoOoOOoOO! I finally found a fabulous, tinted sunblock (originally recommended to me by a friend) at:

Amazon.com: http://tinyurl.com/mf8udzz

(see if that URL works for ya, it should take you to the MissJAmazon.com link)

You can order this AmazonPrime (free shipping) if you subscribe to the Prime service.

What I LOVE about it? It goes on beauuuuuutifully creamy and smooth. No shine, very natural tint to it. I don't even mix it up with add'l sunblock. It's SPF 41 - good enough for the outdoors (if you also bring your hat along!).

Check it out!
I bug you.

You're welcome, but I'm pretty sure they won't sell this exact product in the US.
Even if it's the same name the formulation will be different, because I don't believe Anthelios contains "mexoryl" in the US.

It makes my skin look kind of luminous but may not be great for oily skin.

Bugjune, do you think that Elta MD one would be acceptable for a man? I've been thinking of using a tinted sunscreen to give my skin more colour but obviously don't want it to look like foundation.

That's OK, I don't live in the US either but I have a mail-forwarding service that allows me to order stuff from the US/UK and then forward it back to where I live.

(hit the gray tab "Ingredients")

And yes, Balmain, I DO think you could use this tinted sunblock on your face. Perhaps a caveat would be: you should have fair skin! I have quite fair skin, and find that the tint just blends in so naturally - no creasing, shine, or anything like that.
I bug you.

BugJune....Do you put your moisturizer on first? Does your face look shiny/greasy with this sunscreen?
Thank you!

Moisturiser should go on first, however since most sunscreens are going to be somewhat moisturising I'm not sure it's entirely necessary.

The absolute best sunscreen I've found is Fallene's Total Block SPF65. Dries completely clear, insanely high protection (used by people with sun-related conditions), and gives the best of both physical and chemical blockers. Second to that would probably be the La Roche one linked above. Though funnily enough I still found Total Block to be more cosmetically elegant.
