What sun block should I use for sensitive skin?

In her book The Skin Type Solution, dermatologist Dr. Leslie Baumann defines the term "sensitive skin" into four different kinds: Acne (prone to pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads), Rosacea (easy flushing, hotness), Stinging (burning sensation), and Allergic (flaking, itching, redness). The common thread of all these classifications is inflammation. When shopping around for sunscreen, read the labels and see which of the mentioned types are targeted. My personal sunblock favorites are VMV Hypoallergenics, which are ultra-protective, lightweight, won't clog pores, and allergen-free.
