Strategist contributor (and longtime beauty editor) Hanna Morrill tipped us off to this facial sunscreen from Dermalogica. “For those of us with acne-prone skin, smearing on a goopy sunscreen is about as appealing as tarring and feathering one’s face,” she aptly noted. She likes this “entirely matte formulation” because it “feels cool and untacky on the skin, absorbs quickly, and works almost like a primer under makeup. If you’ve always been someone who thought they actually couldn’t wear facial sunscreen, this is your game-changing product.” Right now it’s 20 percent off as part of a Dermalogica sale over at Dermstore. Eagle-eyed sunscreen-heads, you’re not losing your minds: This used to be known as “MediBac Clearing Oil-Free Matte SPF 30” and came in a stouter bottle. It’s now in a tube, and has a new name, but it appears to be the same stuff.
