Hi again, gorgeous,
Summer is around the corner!! Are you(r skin) ready???
I actually kind of fed up with getting new pimples from sunscreen, and if you've read my previous posts you must have known that I have sensitive, acne prone skin that reacted to almost everything, and of course including sunscreen. I have tried a few chemical sunscreens because before I came to the Netherlands my skin was so oily so I hate the idea of using occlusive physical sunscreen (I tried once though, with not so good formulation and it caused 1-2 pimples afterwards). If you starting to have a thought that I might have not cleansed it properly, well.. I guess I have, using cleansing balm / oil as the first cleanser, wiped it with microfiber cloth that has been soaked in warm water, then followed with a facial wash. I believe it is clean enough. And the pimple(s) start appearing within hours after I applied the sunscreen, usually they are itchy, or hurt.. So I am 100% sure it's an allergic reaction.
I was planning to find physical sunscreen because I've heard the formulation are waay better nowadays so it's less pore clogging, but when I browse on FB I saw an ad from La Roche Posay that they have a 'try La Roche Posay Anthelios UV for free'. It's a brand that has always caught my eyes and they claimed that the sunscreen is suitable for sensitive, oily and blemish-prone skin, plus it's free. I'm pretty much willing to give it a chance. So after using it for half a year, here is my honest La Roche Posay Anthelios Invisible Anti-Shine Mist SPF 50 review:
