    Popular sun protection that is used by a lot of members: Devita, Pratima, Eco logical, Burnout they are all physical (zinc oxide). Shiseido is a mixture (physical and chemical). Not sure if you can get them all at the chemist. I'm in the Uk and I have to get mine online the only one I've been able to get from the chemist is la Roshay Athelios and it wasn't any good (chemical and white cast).

    Some sun protection threads.

    I use Devita and I like it. I would love to try Pratima but its not easy to get hold of and other brands that I've tried had me looking like this.


    Pros
    • Easy to get shipped to the UK/US


    • No white cast what so ever


    • Contains hyaluronic acid which I believe gives me a little glow and is moisturising (I have dry skin)


    • Not too expensive imo. If you bulk buy from certain places you get a good deal


    Cons

    • Can leave a bit of a shine


    • Some feel its too expensive for the amount 2.5oz/75ml


    • Some find its too sheer and doesn't offer enough protection


    • Its not waterproof so you may need to apply more often in hotter and humid climates/environments

    The hole you dig for me will be the one you fall in yourself.

    Thanks for breaking it down ProudChoc. I'm a newbie and feel a more confident about what I need to do and how to do it after reading your post.

    I need to do some shopping..

    at your pic! Thanks for this info. I have been eyeing the Devita as well, and don't really want to dole out the monies for multiple brands, unless I can locate some unlikely samples. My sweetie put me on an SCT budget, so I'm not allowed to make anymore non-mandatory purchases for my "skin care regime".

    LOL, nothing. Its a quote from my fav show Sopranos. Each time I vow to not buy anything new, I learn one more thing I need to buy (i.e. Devita in the summer, and something else in the winter).
