Skin Care Review: Obagi Healthy Skin Sunscreen SPF 35

by lisa, houston, TX usa


Excellent zinc/titanium based sunscreen with no "ball up" effect

Pricey and not waterproof

I really like this sunscreen. I had never used an "expensive" sunscreen before assuming that as long as the necessary active ingredients were present that was all that mattered. I must say now that I have used this sunscreen I will never go back to the cheaper ones for my face. First of all it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any greasy or shiny look. Secondly it doesn't "ball up" when applying makeup like other lesser brands I have used. I used to think that was just a necessary evil of sunscreen but since researching other brands I have found out they don't all have that unpleasant side effect. Some people are bothered by the slight white tint that occurs using the zinc based sunscreens but I think they may be using too much. I use plenty but did find in the beginning I was using more and did have more of a white tint before it was all absorbed. Zinc and titanium sunscreens are the best at blocking UVA/UVB rays and I think this one is a real winner.

Would definitely purchase again. Don't apply too heavily or you may have a white tint.
