14 Best Sunscreens -- and the 4 Worst
See which products will prevent your skin from looking lobster-like all summer long
Why it stinks: There was a two-sided response among our readers to this Mexoryl SX-based sunscreen. Although a few reviewers praised the product's moisturizing and UVA-blocking abilities, more than half of users reported breakouts, burns and irritated eyes.
"Don't waste your money!" advised one reader, who experienced all of the above after using La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX on a trip to the Caribbean. "We burned, in just a few hours, while under umbrellas. The product ran into our eyes and stung, and we broke out, too. The next time we ventured into the sun (after much aloe and aspirin), we changed products and were fine the rest of the trip." For $33.99 a pop, it seems that the risk may outweigh the reward with this one.
