Oil of Olay - sunscreen plus moisturizer version. Wear it daily. Face doesn't burn. Worn it for years, very few wrinkles for my age. No, not telling that! Ha

Re: Sunscreen for face....how I hate thee...

My oily skin hates suncreen too. Always makes me shiny/oily and usually I can count on it to break me out also. The 2 that I have found that don’t break me out are Tatcha’s sunscreen and Josie Maran’s tinted SPF. (Josie’s regular/untinted made me a grease pit however.)

Re: Sunscreen for face....how I hate thee...

I can’t tell you the last time I had sunscreen in my face.

Has to be at least 10-15yrs.

I wear an oil for moisture...and no facial makeup.

 

My gut says...10-20yrs from now, we will be heading toward

an ‘180’ with all the chemicals we’re applying to our skin. 

Many say the sunscreen chemicals are a large contributor 

to the skin issues, including skin cancers.

 

Unless one is in direct sunlight for hours on end,

the use for sunscreen is not needed....IMO.

@sidsmom This is all your opinion though and has NO basis on any factual evidence.

Farmacy Green Screen is pretty traceless. One of my all time favorites.

I use NCN I'm Covered Physical Sunscreen SPF 32.  I love this one.  I have ordered it several times.

It does not ball up no matter what skincare I use, plus it does not leave a white cast.  It is not oily, but does not have a true matte finish.  It's more of a dewey finish.

If there's anything I don't need in my sunscreen it's moisturizers. Good grief don't we have enough in our serums and moisturizers? Who wants to put a moisturizing sunscreen on top of that?? All I want is a clear mineral sunscreen that's not oily and stays matte.

I won't wear a liquid or cream sunscreen for all the reasons listed above.  Since I need to wear a finishing powder anyway, I use a powder sunscreen -- currently using one by Color Science, but there are several brands out there.  Since sunscreen has to be re-applied every 2 hours to be effective, it's very easy to brush on the powder as needed.  It comes in a tube with a brush on one end, so very easy to carry in my purse.
