I have a psychological problem in that I feel unless I apply excessive amounts of sunscreen to the point at which it's visible on my face then I'm not getting ideal protection.

However, a lot of sites mention a need for only a small amount to cover the face the size of a few peas.

Is there any way to apply a sunscreen and then test its effectiveness after that? To know if enough has been applied or not. Primarily I'm concerned with UVA.

For testing whether it's suitable for your skin or not you can apply the sunscreen on your forearm. If you don't get any reaction of problem in that place it won't harm on your skin. You can test any kind of skin care products this way.

Hope my suggestion work for you :)

Not that I am aware of. You could buy a couple that you want to try and test them out by wearing one one day and one another while going outside. Similar conditions, same amount of time, etc.
