Im on the hunt for a light non-greasy sunscreen I can use on my face - just for everyday running around! Im on Accutane so Im really really sensitive to sunlight! I know some sunscreens are pretty heavy and can clog the pores - I definitely don't want that! So any recommendations would really really help me out!
La Roche Posay has amazingly light sunscreens and they're SPF 50! I also use Olay Regenerist moisturizer with SPF 50 which hits two birds.
Thank you so much Sarah! Im heading to the drugstore soon to check those out! Ive heard good things about La Roche Posay products. Many thanks :]
Neutrogena age shield Spf 70 or u can even use the baby version to it(Spf 60) they're both lightweight and not greasy

There"s a GREAT everyday sunscreen, I use it in spy 30. Completely non greasy and light weight, hardly visible and it even hydrates your skin quite a bit without looking oily. It won't bother your skin either, I used it when I was on accutane and it didn't bother my skin at all, actually my dermatologist recommended it to me. It's by CeraVe AM lotion SPF 30
you could buy it here! :)

One other important thing: Keep in mind the FDA change their sunscreen regulations so make sure you watch out for products that comply with them! You can read more here: http://www.beautyeditorial.com/2012...

Murad anti-aging moisturizer spf 20 (for acne prone skin), La roche posay at CVS, Skinceuticals sheer defense spf 50 are all great spf's for skin being treated for acne.

Definitely NOT a high-end product, but I love e.l.f. tinted moisturizer and I use it every day. It has aloe, vitamins and SPF 20, which makes it so great to use as a foundation because it covers all the bases. I also use it by itself without any makeup and it looks very natural.
I have pretty tan skin, though, so I'm not sure how the pigments are for girls with lighter skin tones.
I have breakout prone combination skin and was using Murads Essential C Day moisturizer SPF 30 but it was leaving my skin super shiny and oily to the point that I couldn't wear makeup over it because in a couple of hours it would start to slide off. So I switched to Clinique Super Defense Moisturizer in SPF 25 and my breakouts stopped and my skin no longer looks and feels like an oil slick and I'm able to go about my regular makeup routine without fearing it's just going to wipe right off.

Enza Essentials Advanced Protection 30 is awesome! It's super light, plus it uses Zinc Oxide which is great for oily skin and it's well-recognized in the dermatological community. Never clogs my pores, and is loaded with vitamins. I would definitely recommend it.

It's an Asian brand, but if you can find it, Biore's UV White Face Milk is amazing. Light, non-greasy and SPF 50. I use it as a base too. There are several types for different purposes. The pink one is for brightening, purple for moisturizing, white for whitening and blue for both face and body.

I really like Vichy Capital Soleil - mattifying face fluid dry touch. It has a really unique consistency and is not greasy at all!

Thank you so much Carelen, Stormie, Kaci, Kiana, Vivian, Angelina, and Tina!!!! Will have to check these out as well :] and Biores UV White Face Milk sounds great! Thanks for the suggestions! Will be picking some of these up for my month long vacation coming up!!

Bioré is A-MA-ZING
I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock as well, but in SPF45. It's a little hard to spread but it's not greasy at all and dries to a matte finish. It might feel a little heavy at first but once it dries and sets, you don't notice it at all.
I have also tried out Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer SPF50 for Sensitive Skin and that just glides onto the skin, and doesn't feel heavy either. It's a nice double-duty product.

Try Sun Putty Face. Great protection and my complexion is very clear since I've been using it.
