Before I had a baby, I imagined that babies had perfect skin. Isn’t that why there’s that expression, “smooth as a baby’s bottom?” But it turns out that babies deal with a ton of skin issues. Some of them are mostly cosmetic (like baby acne and cradle cap), but others require treatment (like eczema).
Neutrogena is a master of marketing: “Sheer Zinc” is a great phrase. Old-school zinc was pasty—”sheer zinc” is nothing like that. It’s next-generation. It’s sheer. It’s mineral-based. It’s a no-fuss way to take good care of your skin. Unfortunately, we’re not quite at a place where zinc-based sunscreens can be completely sheer just yet.

I love trying zinc oxide sunscreens. Over the course of 2019, I’ve tried quite a few, including: Bare Republic Face Sunscreen SPF 30, All Good Sunscreen Butter SPF 50+, Coppertone Pure & Simple Sunscreen SPF 50, Badger Clear Zinc Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, Hawaiian Sol SPF 50 Reef Safe Sunscreen. And that’s just listing the solely zinc oxide-based ones. I’ve also tried other physical sunscreens that contain a mixture of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
