    @PrettyGirlNae, when searching or considering sunscreens always look at the oil content. That can usually sum it up and narrow your decision.
    It's really disturbing lol! What do you mean by "oil content"? Where can I find that? Is it on the bottle?

    Yep, it can drive a person crazy......thats why we have reject piles yes, look on the ingredient list it will list the oils in order there. And when in a store, don't be afraid to try those suckers on your skin before you purchase!! I try before I buy when I can. Online you don't have that option, but don't ever hesitate to return something if it doesn't work for you, even if you've used it.

    See too much time and effort. They really need to start making more clear and creamy textured zinc sunscreens.

    I just purchased CotZ sunscreen, light tinted and natural tint.
    Kinda regret to buy the natural tint one, I didn't check the % and just realized it's only 8% TiO and 3.8% ZnO.
    The tint looks dark in the tube, altho it feels so smooth like a silicone based primer.
    While the light tinted feels moisturizing, it takes quite some time to dry (tested on my hand).

    I also purchase Devita SS off from iherb.
    I tried it last year, but it rubbed off like an eraser dust, and I threw it away.
    Thinking it was a bad batch, I splurge again to see if it is OK.
    Haven't opened the tube yet, we'll see. finger-crossed.

    Is there any matte finish sunscreen like BurnOut Face&Body???? Or I am destined to give up trying new SS????

    @chocosweet , although I have not tried this SS yet (its very new), it looks like a great choice might be worth the try for you. Great price as well. I will try it soon myself

    I wonder if we have it in Singapore. guess I will go down to town to look for it.
