Sunscreens — a must this summer!

I know I should have posted this earlier when summer just started, but it’s not over yet. Having a sunscreen in this extreme heat is a must to protect our skin.

TotalBeauty.com has listed the Best and Worst Sunscreens. I made a quick list. Here are the worst:
1. DDF DAILY MATTE SPF 15
2. Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 15 Continuous Clear Spray
3. Philosophy A Pigment Of Your Imagination SPF 18
4. Eminence Sun Defense Minerals

And, the best:
1. ZO Skin Health Oclipse Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30
2. Jan Marini Skin Research Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant
3. DDF ENHANCING SUN PROTECTION SPF 30
4. Obagi Nu-Derm Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35
5. Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 40
6. Avon SKIN SO SOFT BUG GUARD PLUS SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion
7. La Mer The SPF 18 Fluid
8. Hawaiian Tropic SPF 15 Plus Sunblock
9. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++
10. Kiss My Face Face Factor SPF 30 For Face & Neck
11. Coppertone Continuous QuickCover Lotion Spray
12. Banana Boat Ultra Defense Sunblock Lotion SPF 30
13. Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen
14. Dermalogica Super Sensitive Face Block SPF 30

From the list, I only have Clinique’s Super City Block. I haven’t used it yet though. My Mum gave it and has been bugging me to since I go outside everyday. Also, she didn’t like that it’s tinted. It can be a makeup base after all. 😛 At the moment, I use Etude House’s BB Cream. My face used to break and get dry when it’s summer. Now I look fresh all day even though I feel otherwise. *lol* That reminds me, I haven’t done a review on the BB Cream.

So, what sunscreens do you use? Please share especially some cost-efficient ones. I don’t think I can afford to use the Super City Block for everyday and Etude House’s BB Cream isn’t purely sunscreen. ^^;
