The 7 Best Non-Greasy, Non-Shiny Sunscreen for Oily Skin


Although there is a lot of emphasis given to the SPF number, it is best not to get too hung up about this number. After a point (say SPF 30), any SPF is good enough. An increase in SPF from say 40 to 50 provides only a tiny bit more protection. For Indian summers, an SPF of 30-40 sunscreen is good

Apply at least one ounce of sunscreen (enough to fill a shot glass) at least 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. Also use a lip balm or lipstick that contains sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.

Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector

Just ordered my second tube. I’ve been on the lookout for a good sunscreen that doesn’t cause shininess or sting my eyes that’s also affordable. This fits the bill. .

I like the way this smooths my skin and looks under my cc cream while providing sun protection. Will continue to use. Buying during bonus time is an additional perk.

One thing is i find that when i apply makeup straightaway after super city block, the makeup goes on nicely.

Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel With SPF 20

The sunscreen gel comes in a convenient, light happy cyan blue plastic tube  with a tight flip cap to prevent spills which makes it pretty easy peasy to carry around in your bag. 🙂 My only qualm is that, just like the previous one this too, has a tendency to accumulate around the mouth of the tube making it unhygienic and dirty. 😐

It is very light, cooling and gets absorbed by my skin in an instant even in this hot humid weather so total lovvee!

A good sunscreen is an investment worth making. Go ahead and buy a good sunscreen. Demanding though your skin type may be, your beautiful skin deserves it!
