I had posted this in another topic, but didn't get any responses, so I thought I'd try here.

Know that many of you have used Eucerin Extra Protective and was wondering if anyone had experience with Purpose Redness Reducing Moisturizer. For comparing here are their ingredients (both are SPF 30).

Purpose :Active Ingredients: Ensulizole 2.0%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Octocrylene 7.5%, Zinc Oxide 2.0%

Inactive Ingredients: Behenyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, BHT, Bisabolol, Butylene Glycol, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Calcium Pantothenate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteth-10 Phosphate, Codium Tomentosum Extract, Cyclohexaslioxane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dicetyl Phosphate, Dimethicone, DMDM Hydantoin, Ethylparaben, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbomate, Isohexadecane, Magnesium Aspartate, Methylparaben, PEG-100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Aspartate, Propylparaben, Sarcosine, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Cocoyl Amino Acids, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tocopherol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Trimethylolpropane, Triethylhexanoate, Tromethamine, Water, Xanthan Gum

I'd go with the first one, no red lights went up as far as all the ingredients I know to be bad, but the second one has a lot of parabens, which are poo pooed upon in the health food stores. + the first two ingredients are some for of alcohol and I don't think it's an alcohol fat.
