I am trying to find a non greasy sunscreen for my face. I have tried several brands already and was told Cancer Council was the best. It sweated off within 10 minutes. I have now been trying Woolworths Select face matt finish and it seems OK, but I was wondering if anyone else has some great products I have not tried yet.

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question
  • I’m currently using Reef SPF50 and it’s not greasy with a coconut scent. :)


  • We use Le Tan for face and body and it works well for us and doesn’t seem greasy!


  • I use a spray one for kids. Can’t quite recal the name though…Banana Sunscreen maybe. Sorry, no help really :/


  • Banana boat is great for us! Even daddy who is a big sweaty hairy monster LOL


  • Sun days nutrimetics comes in spray or bottle great protection SPF 50+ with vitamin E and Aloe Vera. Non stick and sand wont stick. Have a look at http://www.nutrimetics.com.au/tracybaker.


  • Banana Boat has always worked well.


  • If you look for natural based sunscreen that should be water based and maybe have natural oils added you would find that less greasy.


  • I find most of them are greasy


  • Try looking for a moisturizer that has an SPF rating. I find these are less greasy than just sunscreens.


  • I’ve had lots of trouble finding a sunscreen for my face that didn’t result in a breakout. I found Nivea face sunscreen to be the best for me.


  • there are some good comments here


  • Would like to know the answer to this tooo


  • Avon sunscreen is awesome and SPF 30


  • did you find something good?


  • Have you ever tried the banana boat sunscreens. I have found them very good, and they come in three different ranges. , also when we worked we always used Hamiltons sunscreen, as we were at a swimming pooll, and in and out of water and sun all day long. I believe nivea also has a good one.
