I'm very fair complected and need some protection. I purchased one that says "OIL FREE", but when I read the list of ingredients, it listed tocopherol (vitamin E). Is this a no-no?

Ok so I bought the sunscreen I talked about yesterday because I thought it didn't contain oil. It says oil free but it does have tocopherol (which is Vit E) so maybe that's the culprit that caused me not to lose a thing from yesterday to today! I didn't gain, but I didn't lose either. Booooo.

I haven't weighed in on this because I'm not really an expert, and I've not bought or used any sunscreen lately. (Yeah, I know, I'm living dangerously.) I even have lots to learn about deciphering the ingredient labels! But I'd think the Vitamin E could be trouble. Is it at the top or bottom of the ingredient list? You might check around some more -- there has to be an oil-free variety.

Good luck on your search, and I hope you get past that stall in a hurry!
