Neutrogena’s UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen dominated the best sunscreen voting, with more than 2000 of you giving it your nod of approval and numerous glowing recommendations in the comments.
If that isn’t enough to convince you to give it a try, Jezebel’s Anna North also spoke highly of it:
... Then I found Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunscreen. It is in fact both sheer and dry, and it allows me to touch my face without feeling disgusted with myself. I used it daily for years... A bottle of Neutrogena might set you back slightly more than a drugstore store brand, but it is worth it. I’m a big fan of store brands for almost everything, but I’ve found that generic “dry touch” sunscreens are just not as dry. And even if it’s a couple extra bucks, it’s still way less than the designer-y sunblocks magazines often recommend. - Anna North
There is no perfect sunscreen, and the quality and quantity of the research on the list of potential ingredients in each product varies wildly. Knowing that, 2000 recommendations for a product from our readers is incredibly valuable.
But there are of course lots of other sunscreens on the market. EWG, one of the best databases for researching the ingredients in cosmetics, has a great list of sunscreens they recommend. Of your top five nominations, La Roche-Posay and BullFrog made their list.
My personal choice, EltaMD UV Pure also made their list. It’s sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, oil-free, dye-free, hormone-free, gluten-free, noncomedogenic, water-resistant, and contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. I wore it exclusively during recent trips to the Galapagos and Aruba, and it was both very effective and not at all greasy.
