What's the difference in efficacy between Mexoryl and Cell-Ox Shield?
I thought Mexoryl was the most advanced, broadest-protection UVA blocker. So I've always looked for Anthelios products that contain Mexoryl (ecamsule). How does this Cell-Ox Shield compare? It doesn't contain Mexoryl. Is this more of a sunscreen for people who want good texture and absorption and no white film, or is this product just as effective against UVA/UVB rays?

on La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Melt In Sunscreen Milk
I tried this product, and although I liked the feel and texture I think it was an awful sunscreen. I actually had some areas of burn/redness after just a few hours in the sun. I've tried a few of the la roche suncreen, and have been dissappointed in all of them-even to the point of staining my clothes with a yellowish hue.
You just can't beat the Neutrogena dry touch line-it comes in 3 oz (great for travel) size tubes and is totally reliable. Hope that helps.

Yes, I've heard that too and so I've used this and other La Roche Posay sunscreens but it got me thinking maybe I should switch around with other highly recommended ones since science is always changing. Unless it's the really liquid like ones or mixed with moisturizer, all the sunscreens seem to leave a slight film on my face and this one did as well but I have dry skin during winter and combination during warmer months. I really like skin ceutical physical defense and Avene suncreen. Good luck!
