If the thought of added fragrance makes your skin crawl into a ball and cry, try this lightweight, scent-free sunscreen, which uses fruit oils to lightly hydrate skin, without leaving it irritated or greasy.
This gel-like formula is a cross between a mattifying makeup primer and a lightweight sunscreen, so you can smooth it over your skin before applying your foundation for all-day, slip-proof coverage. It's also a physical formula—i.e. not filled with chemical-based sun protection—so it won't irritate your delicate face.
It's pricey, but this cult-favorite French mineral sunscreen is worth the splurge for its feather-light finish. The fact that it was made with sensitive skin in mind is a bonus, but the real draw is the fact that the moisturizing lotion dries down to an almost-matte finish, so you'll never look shiny.
In an ideal world, you'd reapply your sunscreen every two hours as demanded by the skin gods. But this is real life, and nobody's got time for that. Instead, try dusting your face with a layer of this velvet-y, sunscreen-laced mineral powder, which comes in tints ranging from nearly sheer to bronze, throughout the day. Your dermatologist (and mom) will be proud.
Ask a dozen derms what their favorite brand is for sensitive skin, and you'll get a dozen love letters to Avene. This sheer, lightweight lotion is no exception—it's formulated with soothing vitamin E and fatty acids to keep sensitive skin happy, while also protecting against damage with a high dose of SPF 50.
