You can't go wrong with Walmart's brand Equate sunscreen for $7.

SPF is not a linear scale. SPF 15 filters out 93% UVB, SPF 30 is 97% while SPF 60 is 98%. Thus anything past SPF 30 is, imo, like throwing money away.

Also, this is just overstock sunscreen, so it's cheap because it expires in Jan 2020, unlike fresher sunscreen which lasts a couple of years at least. Buy this if you have a few kids and you're going to use it up this summer. Btw, this is a good brand that uses a mineral active ingredient (zinc oxide) which had a much longer track record of safety re: absorption into skin etc than the cheaper stuff.

Shoppers Drug Mart sells the exact same sunscreen for over $15. I bought some at Winners for $9 before I heard about the Dollarama deal. I only buy physical sunblock like this stuff now. I actually prefer the Green Beaver sunscreen that Winners carries now.

Being allergic to sunscreen, I need to resort to zinc oxide products. They usually leave a white cast due to the zinc (regardless of non-whitening claims) and feel like smearing Greek yogurt on my skin that stays on for days, but at $4 I'm willing to give this one a shot... if I can find it. Thanks OP!

Tried DermaE or Cyberderm?

Whitecast is dependant on skin tone. My skin tone is just the average Asian so it might leave whitecast if you're darker than me.
DermaE doesnt leave a whitecast on me. I havent opened the Cyberderm yet so cant compare.

PS. The Aveeno Mineral (and Baby) sunscreen ($15-25 at SDM/WM) is acceptable whitecast on my body, but noticeably pale on my face.
Cell plans - anything more than $10/gb is a ripoff.

I recommend checking out Lab Muffin's video on sunscreen myths below, she debunked that SPF percentage mix-up pretty well (see Myth 1).



So yes, you do get substantially longer protection time using SPF 60 than SPF 30.

I'll check them out, thank you!
My skintone is average-ish Asian too (probably slightly darker now it's summer) but also with quite a yellow tinge haha, so zinc sunblocks end up making me look a little purple and sickly. I suppose swallowing the cost (both financial & cosmetic) is better than sun damage though.

i bought live clean unscented baby lotion from dollarama not too long ago. it smells gross, like dried spit, even though it's supposed to be unscented. not sure if that's the way it's supposed to smell or if dollarama got a bad batch.. i am traumatized by that scent and now i don't trust any liveclean product on my skin lol
