About this deal

It is also used as a water repellent additive and to reduce the tackiness and stickiness of other ingredients. The only difference I noticed was that polyhydroxystearic acid and glycerin swapped places in these lists. And both products are very similar to Aveeno Positively Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50, which also contains the exact same concentration of zinc oxide (21.

Neutrogena Sheer Zinc® Face is a mineral sunscreen powered by PURESCREEN® 100% zinc oxide technology so it provides superior broad-spectrum protection against skin-aging UVA and burning UVB rays.

I used both the products – one is catered for the body and one is specially made for the face, which is super important to me because I have sensitive skin and prefer hypoallergenic products. Being the kind of curious and obsessed person I am, I brought the same and experimented under different variables, weather, makeup and my final verdict is : IT CHECKS OUT! Although this product is fragrance-free, its natural odor is virtually identical to the one I remember from Aveeno Positively Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50. We wrote more about nanoparticles and the concerns around them here, but the gist is that if nanoparticles were absorbed into the skin that would be a reason for legitimate health concerns. But two of my closest friends and fellow skincare addicts personally vouched to the terrible white mime like cast this leaves behind, so I never personally considered it.

They also have great emulsion stabilizing properties, and work as high-performance compacting agents for makeup products that come in the form of pressed powders. NEUTROGENA® SHEER ZINC® is a mineral sunscreen powered by PURESCREEN® 100% zinc oxide technology; it provides effective broad-spectrum protection, is non-greasy, and dries clear, so can be used under make-up. This oil-free, non-comedogenic face sunscreen lotion won't sting eyes so it is ideal for daily protection.

If (similar to us) you are in the weird habit of reading the label on your shower gel while taking a shower, you might have noticed that sodium chloride is almost always on the ingredient list.

Make sure you’ve properly moisturized your skin before applying this sunscreen if you don’t want it to accentuate your face dandruff (if you have the dubious honor of being a member of this exclusive club). Finding a physical sunscreen with no alcohol, no fragrance, no essential oils and with minimal white cast on my tan skin ( read NC 42-44) has been my mission impossible. I’ve noticed certain brands like Thinksport label their zinc oxide as “non-nano” so I wondered if there were only two types of zinc oxide: nano-sized and non-nano.

Depending on your hair type, it can be a bit difficult to wash out and might cause some build-up (btw, this is not true to all silicones, only the non-volatile types). If you have dry skin, here’s a word of warning: Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Sunscreen SPF 50 will exacerbate the flakiness of your skin. Water, c12-15 alkyl benzoate, styrene/acrylates copolymer, octyldodecyl citrate crosspolymer, phenyl trimethicone, cetyl peg/ppg-10/1 dimethicone, dimethicone, glycerin, polyhydroxystearic acid, ethyl methicone, silica, cetyl dimethicone, triethoxycaprylylsilane, phenoxyethanol, glyceryl behenate, sodium chloride, acrylates/dimethicone copolymer, chlorphenesin, phenethyl alcohol, avena sativa (oat) kernel flour, caprylyl glycol, cetyl dimethicone/bis-vinyldimethicone crosspolymer, tocopheryl acetate, chrysanthemum parthenium (feverfew) flower/leaf/stem juice. But it’s such a poor example of what mineral protection can be that I worry it will turn people off and send them back to the conventional formula.
