I was standing in line at Dollarama with the sun coming down, so I decided to look for sunscreen. Was able to find this Neutrogena Sunscreen stick for $4. Other stores sell them for roughly $15 regular price. I thought it was pretty handy for on the go and it was mess free.

Dollarama location was in Maple across Vaughan Mills.

Note this is a chemical sunscreen, not a mineral sunscreen.

I tried tons of mineral sunscreen. They almost all suck big time because they take forever to absorb and many leave a white cast on your face. If you have any facial hair you can forget these. The only one I found which absorbed as well as top notch regular sunscreens (such as Ombrelle) is this one, but it is very pricey unfortunately - https://well.ca/products/consonant-the- ... 03533.html

Here's a cheaper moisturizer with some mineral sunscreen I'm digging lately: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07S253W3T?th=1

To my understanding mineral sunscreens don't absorb into the skin but rather sits on top hence the white cast. Chemical sunscreens absorb therefore no white cast. I haven't done enough reading on it but from what I have read (a long while ago) the chemicals used isn't the best for the body.

That’s a great price for a sunscreen with Helioplex technology. If you don’t want to look like a ghost or hate sticky feeling, avoid so called mineral suncreens.

Best sunscreen’s come from Korea and Japan, they are water based. So light that you don’t feel anything. Head to your local T&T and shop there.

In Canada, Lancome has Bienfait UV SPF 50 which is best but pricey. Small bottle lasts really long, is available at Bay.

This Neutrogena is our go-to sunscreen. I hate the feeling of most sunscreens and this is one of the better ones that don't feel greasy. We get the regular non-face lotion version every year at Costco, which sells 3 packs.

This stick version is really nice to have....good for a quick touch up and no mess.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I think you might be correct. With mineral sunscreen, manufacturers emphasize that the zinc oxide and titanium dioxide is non-nano so it cannot be absorbed into the blood stream, unlike synthetic sunscreens which do and at higher levels than previously thought (prompting some controversy last year and increased monitoring from the FDA and Canada Health). Sometimes the natural sunscreens offset the white cast with the addition of mica or other tints.

I recall a test once that said stick versions are hard to apply. How do u apply it to nooks and crannies?
