    Yes! I saw that recently. I keep checking at CVS, but the SPF 70 hasn't shown up yet. I used my Ultra-Sheer 55 the other day instead of my LaRoche Posay 50+. I forgot how nice the Ultra-Sheer goes on and works under make up!

    They do?! Fabulous!

    I actually stocked up on their Healthy Defense moisturizer in SPF 30. :oops: Because so few face moisturizers went beyond 15.

    Thanks for the tip! :D

    Anyone have ingredients for these? Dr's orders that I watch everything. I will also pass this on to my sis, who gets dark pigmentation (spots) easily, although she uses sunscreen religiously.

    Yeah, I saw that, but they're still only UVA. :( I wish they'd add the UVB blockers they have in their UVA/UVB Lotion (which does go to 45, so I can't complain about it too much) to the Dry Touch ones. I much prefer the way those feel, but I need UVB too, darn it. *sigh*

    most Neutrogena sun protection products now use a combination of Avobenzone - which is a UVA filter - and Oxybenzone - which is a UVB filter.

    this combination is available in the Age Shield line and the Dry Touch spf 55 and above. it's also in the Fresh Cooling Mist spf 30 and 45.

    :D Really?! That's awesome! I wonder why they don't say so on the descriptions on the bottles or the website. Silly marketers...

    I saw the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 70 at Wal-Mart last night. It has UVA/UVB protection listed on the bottle now.

    Shouldn't we all be using the ones that have the MEXORYL SX
    ingredient?

    I think Clarins has one now, but it is also a moisturizer.

    Here is a quote from an ABC article back in 2005 BEFORE the FDA approved it for the US:

    Mexoryl "is the No. 1 individual ingredient in terms of protection from Ultraviolet A radiation

  • rouquinnerouquinne Registered Users Posts: 13,737 Curl Connoisseur
    mexoryl still isn't widely available in the US.

    the Neutrogena products with Helioplex have stabilized avobenzone in them and are quite effective.

    i'd rather people use sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection than worry about which one it is.

    Hmmm... I'm definitely not pale. I get reeeeeallllly tan in the summer cuz I'm part filipino and I even use SPF 50. I wonder if I would still tan so much if I used SPF 70...
