I'll check out the Australian Gold Botanical if I see it. Sometimes chemical sunscreens sting, so a mineral one would be nice.
I haven't tried the vitamin C stuff yet. I ordered the Moisture Surge 72 Hour because "Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief" doesn't seem to exist anymore. There's the "Intense" and the "72 Hour." I seem to remember that the Intense was a little more creamy and I definitely want a gel moisturizer. I'm over anything heavy or sticky. My husband and I funny conversation this morning about how I'm an old woman now and I should be able to wear "face cream" without having a hellacious breakout, dammit, but I guess not.
Haha, for real! I still get acne, it seems so strange at this point but there we go.
I agree, I never liked the Intense. If you ever try the vitamin C stuff, let me know!
I am still addicted to my City Block SPF 40 and I believe it's mineral based. I love the ever-so-slight tint and coverage, and every time I decide to try foundation again, I'm quickly reminded that I don't like it, no matter the form or formula. I know I don't glop on the City Block heavily enough for ideal protection, so I layer Clinique Pep-Start™ HydroRush Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 underneath it. I struggle to find a body sunscreen that I really like, has no discernible fragrance, is easy to apply, isn't sticky or slippery all day, and actually keeps me from burning/tanning. My search continues...
