Facial sunscreen has always been an issue for me. For as long as I can remember, I have always been irritated when it comes to sunscreen on my face. I use to cry every time I had to put sunscreen on my face because it burned so bad. The sunscreen would burn under and around my eyes and then I would rub them because it hurt so badly. Then the sunscreen would get in my eyes and I would be in more pain. It was a vicious cycle. I needed to wear sunscreen while playing in the pool to protect my skin. I would either have to play through the stinging or sit with a cold, wet washcloth on my eyes under an umbrella.

My family tried every sunscreen under the sun while I was younger and nothing seemed to work. Over time I got used to the stinging and would almost always be sunburnt under my eyes.


Now as an adult, I want to wear sunscreen everyday to protect my skin from the sun and prevent wrinkles. I still am very sensitive when it comes to facial sunscreens. It has been no easy task to find a facial sunscreen that doesn’t irritate my eyes. I have tried every dermatologist recommended sunscreen from the drugstore and nothing has worked for me. On top of the sensitivity, I have also struggled with acne for the past three years. My skin no longer has cystic acne, but I am still acne prone and some sunscreens can really make me breakout.

I have finally found a sunscreen that doesn’t irritate my eyes and also doesn’t make me breakout!! I honestly can’t believe I found the right sunscreen for me but I really did! This isn’t the most affordable sunscreen but I honestly don’t care. I would rather have no sensitivity and no breakouts.

The Elta MD UV Clear sunscreen has been amazing for me. It isn’t greasy, doesn’t smell overly like sunscreen and the tinted version gives the best amount of color to the skin.

This sunscreen came with me on a cruise and I never had any issues. I was in the salt water, wearing a snorkel mask, swimming in a pool, and sweating! I had no stinging when the sunscreen mixed with anything and I have never in my life been able to say that.

I wear this every single day under makeup and it works beautifully. If you have oily or combination skin, it will give the perfect amount of moisture without making the face oily. My natural oils still come out but this does not contribute to them.

If you are sensitive or acne prone like me, please try this sunscreen! It is amazing and you honestly will not be disappointed!

I just had to share my experience because I know it can help someone else like me. Please let me know if you try it and how it works for you!
