What it is: Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock is a lightweight, noncomedogenic lotion for total body protection from UVA and UVB rays. Its active ingredient is the physical blocker titanium oxide. People with extremely sensitive skin may want to take caution with applying this sunblock, especially around the eyes. The butylene glycol and cetyl alcohol in it may irritate the skin [source: Cosmetic Safety Database].

SPF: Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock is SPF 30. Neutrogena also offers an SPF 60 sensitive skin sunscreen, although the difference in the amount of radiation it blocks is negligible.

How much it costs: A 4-ounce (118-milliliter) tube runs about $10.
