How are Banana Sport and Sunban Forte sunscreens?

0

Hi AM, Teju and Friends,

I have a question about sunscreen.

I am having two suncreens right now.

1) Banana Sport – http://www.amazon.com/Banana-Boat-Performance-Sunscreen-Lotion/dp/B0030ZEGDY

2) Sunban Forte cream (recommended to me by my dermatologist) – http://crazencuriosity.blogspot.com/2012/04/sunbanforte-cream-spf-50-broad-spectrum.html

When i am using sunban forte cream then the white cast and sticky ness remains on my face.   Regarding banana sport suncreen, when i use it then my skin looks oily. So i stop using these two sunscreens and right now i am not using any sunscreens.

Any idea or experience about the above two sunscreens. Do i need to try some other sunscreen. Please suggest/advise.

Thanks for your time and help.

Ashu

Hi Ashu..
Neutrogena clear face sounds fine..
Dont go for spray sunscreen,I used this one too..Not really effective and possibly could break you out..
Nivea is a good options and $6 is reasonable compared to others..

Hey Ansal and aijaz,

Thanks for your response. I heard very good reviews about suncote and eagerly wanted to try that product.

But the problem is i dont get that here in USA and it is not available on ebay and amazon 🙁

Thanks,

Ashu

In the U.S. you have quite a few options for a non-comedogenic sunscreen. Give me some time, I’ll get back to you on this.

Thank you Tejupriya for your help.
1) Dermalogic review doesn’t look good. One of the user review from the site

CONS:
I know some sunscreens do give that white cast on your face…this is one of them.

I also noticed that I get a lot of acne bumps (oil that doesn’t come out) when i started to use this. So I might switched to the one for sensitive skin which has the Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide ingredients in it.

I have problematic skin, and reacts easily to anything….so it depends on your skin type too. It’s not a bad thing to try this and then switch to another if it doesn’t work. I recommend this for you to try, but I will not repurchase – like I’ve said, b/c of my skin type – we have different types. it might or might not work.
2) Philosophy is so much expensive 🙂
3) I am bit hesitate to buy and try Neutrogena products after getting disappointed with Neutrogena extra gentle cleanser. Right now i am using their only Neutrogena moisturizer for combination skin product.
4) Sea and Ski looks great option. Reading more about it.

Let’s see what list of products AM can get.

Best Regards,
Ashu

Hi Teju and AM,

I don’t have Acne. I have left over scarring and skin hyperpigmentation. I want to buy one sunscreen and i was looking into Neutrogena clear face and found three mild comodogenic products in it.

Butylene Glycol is mildly comedogenic
Dimethicone is mildly comedogenic
Steareth-2 is mildly comedogenic

your thoughts please. Should i go for this sunscreen or some other ones.

Please advise.

Thank you,

Ashu

Hi Ashu..congrats on your progress..Yay for you 🙂
Neutrogena clear face has some great reviews for acne prone skin..
I saw the ingredients,nothing particularly is highly comedogenic..
you can still use it..Normally butylene glycol and dimethicone is commonly found in cosmetics..
It shouldnt be a problem for you..

Thank you so much Teju.

How about this one  – http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1930099

I didn’t find any single comodogenic product in it. your thoughts please.
