The tug of war between the right SPF, especially for acne-prone skin makes it very difficult to choose the right one.
I have found my savior SPF ‘La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60’ and just can’t wait to share my experience after using this holy sunscreen. So, let’s see why I am obsessed with this oil-free sunscreen and why I think it’s No.1 for me.
Before I start you can read my other blog SPF with or without Oxybenzone? Which one is safer and better?
The company describes La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60. This oil-free sunscreen provides advanced protection while absorbing pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity. Our best sunscreen for acne-prone skin is formulated with Cell-Ox Shield® technology: broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with antioxidants.
Also, the company claims it is –
- Non-comedogenic sunscreen for oily skin provides broad-spectrum SPF 60 protection
- Oil-free sunscreen for acne-prone skin helps absorb excess oil, reduce shine, and won’t cause breakouts
- A powerful antioxidant complex to help protect skin from free radicals caused by UV rays
- Water-resistant (80 minutes)
- Formulated and rigorously tested for skin tolerance, even on sensitive skin
What do I think about it?
Believe me, my hormonal acne not giving me a reason to relax and live carefree life for the last 3 years. I always have to worry about applying my acne treatment creams before I hit the bed no matter how exhausted I feel.
On top of it, taking care of acne/sun dark spots and saving my skin from UV rays double up my work. Now choosing SPF was a tough row to hoe.
Initially, I started using Neuneutrogena which was just doing fine but after some time, it used to make my face oily (sometimes very oily). Also, I observe, it leaves a white cast on the face and that’s what I thought SPF was supposed to do at that time.
But La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60 is totally a game-changer.
Just to get a broader picture of the product, you can see a video from one of my youtube shorts.
It feels so good and lightweight after application. A gentle quick-absorbing cream is heavenly great. Lather it up without any hesitation. Your acne-prone face is in safe hands. It does not cause breakouts, or make skin oily. The best part it does not leave any white cast. After applying, it dissolves in the skin like a dream, no more disco ball face.
I highly recommend it for oily skin because it is fantastic for removing oil from the skin, leaving it feeling dry, and preventing shine.
Also, it is a fragrance-free & OXYBENZONE-FREE product, and I believe it will suit all skin types. For more details, I would suggest checking the details on the company website for more information as here I would like to share my thoughts from the customer standpoint.
Being an honest blogger, I would like to mention that I have not noticed a significant change in my skin appearance.
But definitely, I am comfortable now wearing SPF with more confidence. That’s the reason I think it’s the No.1 SPF for me (Until now). I wear it every day without fail and the results are stunning even during hot/humid days. Great sun protection with no greasy residue.
Their formula is indeed distinctive comparing other brands. When you dispense the product, it looks like other SPF but the moment you blend it onto your skin. It blends like light whip cream.
I am sure there may be other great SPF out there in the market but I suppose La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Sunscreen is one of the most beautiful sunscreens I have ever come across.
Its retail price is under $35 to $40 (USD) for 150 mil/ 5.0 Fl oz.
I highly recommend La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60 for acne-prone or oily skin types. This is a quick-absorbing SPF that leaves no shine and gives a dry touch to the face. Very comfortable to wear and has no white cast effect after application.
If you are already using this SPF then please let me know if it’s working for you.
