Which Mineral Sunscreen is the Best? | Extensive Review and Wear Test

The majority of foundations do not provide an appropriate level of, if any, broad spectrum sun protection. But, it’s frustrating when your favorite foundation just breaks apart when you apply sunscreen first. In this video I review five of top-rated mineral-based sunscreens on my fair, sensitive, and combination skin.


NeoStrata Targeted Treatment Sheer Physical Protection SPF 50
* 7% titanium dioxide, 6% zinc oxide
* $37 for 1.7oz ($21.76/oz)

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Tinted Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50
* 11% titanium dioxide
* $33.50 for 1.7oz ($19.70/oz)

Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen SPF 50 Tinted Face Mineral Lotion
* 4% titanium dioxide, 4% zinc oxide
* $12.99 for 3 oz ($4.33/oz)

Paula’s Choice CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin
* 2% titanium dioxide, 6% zinc oxide
* $29 for 2oz ($14.50/oz)

EltaMD UV Clear
* 9% zinc oxide 7.5% octinoxate
* $32.50 for 1.7oz ($19.11/oz)

I have the ulta md one. i love it but will not be repurchasing because of the toxicity of oxtinoxate ); going to try the australian botanicals one

I want to like the Australian one but 4% of zinc oxide and 4% titanium dioxide just isnt enough for me. I have no idea how they skated by with an spf of 50. Personally, I wouldnt feel confident enough in the protection and wouldnt use it. The Anthelios sunscreen saying that it has “broad spectrum” coverage by using antioxidants is a joke! As far as that particular Elta MD product, I can’t use chemical sunscreens. There are too many studies showing that they increase free radicals = aka aging. You did help me say no to the Neostrata so your review was helpful! Thanks so much for being so thorough! I’m going to continue looking into other high end sunscreens.

I have dry skin and I use the Australian botanics sunscreen, I found it extremely drying on its own. But I just used oil and a heavy moisturizer underneath it and it works out pretty well for me so far. My only gripe is I have a olive undertone (NC30ish) and the tint is a tad bit too light and quite pink so it makes my face look red, but I wear foundation daily so its no big deal for me. But you really can not beat that price and the lack of white cast makes it very wearable.

I have normal to T-zone oily skin and find Australian Gold works great for me. The tint works good with my skin, and the price per oz. makes it very affordable…
