These four 100% mineral based sunblocks  are the leaders in the all natural category of sun protection for the face.  They contain zinc & titanium dioxide for solid sun protection, dry the clearest in the non-chemical sunblock category (not chalky white), do not clog pores and offer some nourishing ingredients that your skin will love..  


Josie Maran's Argan Daily Moisterizer SPF 47 is my favorite mineral based sunblock for skin that is dry, sensitive or dehydrated. The Argan oil in it makes for a richer in consistency that feels nourishing upon application.  It gives off a healthy & dewy finish and wears nicely under makeup.

Bare Minerals Prep Step is great for those who have more oily or combination (oily around t-zone, dry/normal else where). It blends easy, feels very light on the face and once it settles into the skin, it's 100% clear on light to medium complexions.. If your skin is warmer, it can leave a very light shade of pale but easily covered with a tinted moisturizer or foundation. 

Skin Ceuticals Sheer Physical Defense has been a staple of mine for years.  Its great on all skin types, it has a gorgeous universal tint that gives a radiant finish and evens out skin tone on fair, medium and lightly tanned complexions. Darker complexions may see some bounce off the zinc but mixing a few drops into a tinted moisturizer and/or foundation will hide it instantly. Well worth the effort.  It's light on the face but protects strongly against sun damage with an SPF of 50. 

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 is awesome on all skin types. It's one of the lightest sunscreen's Ive ever felt. It dries clear and has a high SPF in it. This is my drugstore favorite for all natural sunblock.
