I’m *really* making an effort to wear sunscreen regularly this year (at least on weekends, and at least on my face/neck). Best way to prevent wrinkles, right? Plus I have about 20x more freckles than average, so I try to keep to my natural ghostly white hue as much as possible.

My problem is that I can’t find a brand I really love. I’m currently using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer and while it’s the best I’ve found, it is still a little too thick and the scent isn’t ideal — perfect for a day at the beach, but not so much for a day at work. I also think it’s making my chest break out (though that could just be the heat). Maybe the problem is that I bought it in SPF 45?

So I thought I’d ask you: do you have a brand you recommend? Have you tried Neutrogena Ultra Sheer, but maybe in a lower SPF and found it to be great for the average day? So many products have sunscreen in them that smell nothing like a day at the beach — moisturizers, eye cream, bb cream — so there must be an actual sunscreen that is light and fresh, right?

I’d be so thankful if you can point me in the right direction. And then I’ll promise try even harder to wear it everyday.
