Over-makeup Sunscreen Dupe?

Hi Beauty Brains,

Some people use aerosol body sunscreen instead of pricier over-makeup SPF sprays. However, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Lightweight Sunscreen Spray comes with the warning: "Do not spray directly into face." If I close my eyes and mouth, why shouldn't I spray it on my face?

Also, any cheaper sprays similar to UncompliKated SPF 50 Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray?


  • I think there is just a general warning to not spray products directly into your face. The company is just being extra cautious because sunscreen sprays are technically not allowed according to FDA regulations.

    Pretty much any standard sunscreen spray should work as a replacement for the UncompliKated product.
  • Never, ever spray straight into your face. Spray sunscreens work effectively if you apply correctly: Spray until you see it on the skin, rub it in afterward, and reapply often. Never spray sunscreen directly into your face and avoid inhaling it. If you can, use lotion on kids, but some SPF if always better than no SPF. Here Makeup For Beginners
