    Why does burnout leave gray ashy cast on my face?

    I completely understand...... @Arewaa where are you located? Are you in the states? Find a Whole Foods if you are, they have LOTS of sunscreens out as testers. Read the ingredient listing, look for "zinc", preferably one with higher than 8%, start trying a few on your skin and see how they look. Ask the sales rep to send you home with a sample of those you want to try they will be more than willing to send you home with some!

    Its great for those who want to use a high % zinc SS that they can get over the counter locally, but for myself, I will stick with Burnout, finish is much better. Thanks for letting me know about it. You know me, I am willing to try anything with a good amount of zinc.

    Sorry gymrat it did not work ! Could you use it on your body so you don't have to waste the whole bottle?

    it is a bit oily on me too but with powder it dries down to a decent finish.Im a NC 13-15 or so now so it enhances my body if I put it on.

    The one sunscreen that seems to prevent tanning in my very olive son is uriage bariesun XP but it does have a oily finish too.

    Thank you gymie.
    Unfortunately I don’t stay in the US so it’ll be a bit complicated for me but I’ll keep shopping and use your guidelines 😊

    Has anyone tried Heliocare range? Does it prevent tanning?

    I believe I did years ago. They have several versions. What are the ingredients of the one you are wanting to use?
