I gave my Crispy Critter review of my top three favorite sunscreens this week and have two more to add to the list! I am always testing out sunscreens for sensitive skin and this winter found two more which merit consideration particularly if you have skin which is not sun friendly.
I am adding Vanicream Sunscreen and CeraVe For Baby to my list of Top Three sunscreens .
If you have sun sensitive skin chances are you lean toward baby products which are by nature gentler on the skin. I had heard of CeraVe and CeraVe Baby products, but had trouble finding the lotion on the shelves until this year. Our local CVS has started carrying CeraVe which makes a huge savings opportunity with coupons and your CVS card. The amount of sunscreen anyone with sensitive skin uses can be significant daily and every little coupon helps!
CeraVe Baby Sunscreen
I immediately loved the feel of the sunscreen and when you need to use as much sunscreen as I do there is nothing worse than sticky filmy sunscreen. Soft, light, creamy and easy to apply. I had no qualms about using CeraVe Baby on my face and also loved the convenience of the stick version for travel.
This is a physical barrier product with the active ingredients
I have probably sampled the vast majority of sunscreens on the shelves and as my skin has become increasingly sun resistant have had to purchase more sunscreen than I ever care to. Irritating enough to be a crispy sun critter and frustrating to spend money on sunscreens that don’t work well or my skin doesn’t care for.
Vanicream Sunscreen 30 and 50 SPF Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Ingredients
I have used both SPF versions of the Vanicream Sunscreen, the SPF 30 is more widely available and is a physical barrier sunscreen: active ingredients titanium dioxide 3%, zinc oxide 6%.
- Physical barrier sunscreen
- Broad spectrum
- Fragrance Free
- Need muscle to run in or may leave a slight white cast
- Slightly heavy consistency
- Price is medium
The sunscreen receives high recommendations from dermatologists and reviewers. As one crispy critter to another, I do recommend giving this product a try particularly as the product has become more widely available, offers a physical barrier versus a chemical barrier sunscreen and for those seeking an all purpose sunscreen protection.
