Which non greasy sunscreen?
« on: August 13, 2020, 05:24:13 pm »

In 2012 I asked a similar question but recently I have been struggling again with finding a proper sunscreen. I am looking for a sunscreen that:

1. Leaves a non-greasy (dry) coating on the skin.
2. Does not leave a sticky feeling on the skin.
3. Will not leave residues on clothing (socks and t-shirt). A zinc rich sunscreen will typically leave white residues on socks and t-shirt sleeve ends. It looks horrible/dirty right away.
4. Comes in a rather large bottle (preferable 16 fl oz or in that size range).
5. Price of no importance.
6. Available in Walmart, Walgreens or similar.

Anyone with some good recommendations?

I like No-Ad, available in 32oz bottle at Walmart for about $10, IIRC. Lots of different SPF choices.

Non greasy, non staining.

It happens that what I use meets (I think?) your parameters other than I believe the max size is 8 oz....
Coppertone Tear Free Kids' Spray.

There is some ingredient in every sunscreen I've tried except for the Ti and Zn oxide types that cause me to have hives.  Been unable to find a brand (even with a dermatologist consult/tests) that meets your requirements and doesn't give me hives.  I dislike the Ti and Zn types so much I've pretty much given up on applying any except to my nose, neck and the tops of my ears.
