    titanium oxide. My dermatologist said to stay away from this. It can cause more damage then the sun! Something about nano particles and all this other scientific jargon that scared me. He said anything without out that is great and as long as it was about 35SPF but the higher ones are not necessarily the best ones.

    I use "Daylong Sunscreen", it's made Switzerland and I use the kids version. It's very light and non greasy yet feels like it's there if you know what I mean. It's also fragrance free. It makes my face feel very soft, it actually feels much nicer than a lot of expensive face creams I have tried. The one I get is SPF30 and lasts up to 8 hours. I am quite pale with blue eyes and light brown hair and it works really well for me.

    There is a show on today in OZ about which sunscreen is the best. I will try to remember to watch it and report back!

    You guys have to try a product by "BeautiControl". It is their Cell Block C face cream, it blocks everything.

    I recently had to buy a high protection sunscreen because I did laser hair removal on my upper lip-I'm using ROC's SPF 50 face sunscreen, and I'm happy with it. It takes some effort to absorb, but with SPF 50, I'm not exactly expecting a light lotion.

    There is skin cancer in my family namely my father. I have to be very careful about what I use. I didn't want alot of chemicals so I bought Kiss My Face Organics from Drugstore.com with an SPF of 30. It's a stick and very easy to roll on.

    I did a bit of surfing and I found this:

    Quite informative, IMO.

    ^Regina, I thought you might like to know that Paula's Choice skin care and sunscreen have the ingredient paraben listed. Parabens are chemical preservatives that have been found in 90% of breast cancer tumors. They are known to accumulate over time. Some of them are listed below:


    ethyl-methyl-butyl-propyl Parabens

    Does that blend into your skin well? I tried Kiss my face sunscreen (lotion form) and it was very visible on my skin, I ended up washing it off.

    I just roll it on the T of my face like the football players do and I don't blend it but you can't see it. I like it because it's easy and I don't get my hands greasy.
