    Oh God the sunscreen literally made my face freak out. Huge allergic reaction completely puff and red and itch and heat guess it’s not for me when other products are great.

    Wonderful post Jenny! You continue to be the best source on the internet for sunscreen reviews!

    Clarification question: To apply sunscreen to the face, we should apply two generous fingers’ worth to the face, one at a time, and then a third finger’s worth for our neck?

    Also, which is your all-time favorite independently tested mineral sunscreen for everyday use? I too am 100% chemical sunscreen. However, I am breastfeeding and have switched to mineral for now.

    Thanks for all you do!

      Thank you for the kind words Jill! And yes that’s generally the rule I go by. Some people actually use three fingers’ worth for the face alone, but I found that to be too heavy, and when checking with a UV camera I didn’t really notice a difference between the second and third layer. If anything, I think reapplying regularly is more important than that initial 1-finger difference.

      There are several independently tested mineral sunscreens in my sunscreen database, but the only one I’ve tried is the AXIS-Y one. It’s actually pretty good for a mineral sunscreen, the white cast was minor and the texture is fairly light. Still not as elegant as the Good Molecules though or chemical sunscreens though.
