It won’t clog pores or leave you feeling greasy. So it's pretty much the perfect sunscreen.
If you have acne-prone skin, using sunscreen on your face is a catch 22: apply it and watch a host of breakouts crop up—as many over-the-counter formulas clog pores or irritate the skin—or skip it and end up suffering from a painful sunburn. Thankfully, there is an option on the market that proves you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. Enter: Neutrogena’s Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen ($9). Oh, and it’s crazy affordable.
With over 650 reviews on Amazon (66 percent of which are five stars), this best-selling sunscreen features Neutrogena’s signature Helioplex technology for long-lasting UVA/UVB protection and an ultra-lightweight finish that won’t cause buildup. It’s also oil-free—so you won’t end up looking shiny—and water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, so you can avoid constant reapplication after multiple dips in the pool or ocean.
The miracle formula is available in two different strengths (SPF 30 and SPF 55) and, in addition to being your go-to for bare-faced trips to the beach, even makes a great base under foundation for everyday wear (I bought my own bottle for a vacation I took a few months ago, and now I use it every morning).
