Before I put on any makeup, I mix one pump Cetaphil moisturizer with SPF 30 with 2 pumps Aveeno BB Cream from fair to light, which also has SPF30. I love the color that I get with the Aveeno, but by itself, the color is too dark for me. Mixing it with the Cetaphil makes the color more sheer, which makes my skin look super glow-y (even my mom says so!).
For reference, here's the Ingredients for Cetaphil:
Avobenzone 3%, Octisalate 5%, Octocrylene 7%

I know mixing sunscreen with other products is generally bad because it makes the sunscreen less (or in-)effective. But are mixing these two specific chemical sunscreens a bad idea?
