    So I, like many others, realize the importance of using sunscreen daily on your skin, even if it may not be a bright sunny day when you're out and about. However, I have really sensitive skin, and most sun screen products I've used have caused my skin to have a reaction. :( What sun screen products would you recommend for face and body for individuals with the same predicament as me?

    I would greatly appreciate your help :smile:

    For face, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen is my favourite.

    For body I use any of the ones from the Cancer Council here in Australia.

    ^ I wouldn't use the Dr Hauschka if you have sensitive skin. I used to use it and it was very rich and had a lot of natural oils / scents in it that could trigger a skin reaction...

    Thanks a lot for the feedback. :D

    Yeah, i used to use Shiseido's line of sunscreen products; I developed horrible rashes on my arms and legs.
    And using Neutrogena's line of sensitive skin sun screen always ended up running down my face whenever I went outdoors (I live in a pretty humid area).
