I have never worn sunscreen (for every day use) and am trying to find something that is non greasy and will not clog my pores. I'm noticing that the sun seems to be bothering me more than usual this year - I have rashes on my arms and face. I don't wear make up so I don't have any protection at all on my face.

Oil of Olay makes a face moisturizer that has sunscreen in it -- the sunscreen isn't as strong as some but it's fairly face-friendly.

I like the Aveeno products if you need a higher SPF. They work into the skin well and don't clog the pores. Good luck.

I have had a lot of luck with Clinique sunscreens. They even make a lotion that is a sunscreen and a self-tanner so that you get a little bit of a tan without being in the sun. I think they are worth the extra money because Clinique products are gentle for those of us with sensitive skin.

I hope this helps!

my opinion is either the aveeno ( i use aveeno baby spf 45 or 55, its in my car lol and i can't remember right now) also have used neutrogenas lotion sunscreen but that one is much more expensive, both have been non greasy and not bad on the skin
