Spring has sprung and summer is right around the corner (and if you’re in the northeast, it already feels like it this week!), so I thought the recent forum thread on SPF face moisturizer recommendations was timely and wanted to give it some extra attention. As a fair-skinned redhead, sun protection is close to my heart and I was interested in what some of DW readers’ favorite SPF face moisturizers are. Here are a few that got multiple recommendations and sounded especially appealing:
“I use La Roche Posay Anthelios Mineral Tinted Ultra Fluid SPF 50 and love it. I like that it has a tint and gives my face a sheer sort of satin finish. For days when I don’t want something tinted, I use Bobbi Brown PSF 50 Protective Face Base.
I live in a Alberta and find that both work well alone or over a serum. The Bobbi Brown is a bit heavier, but works with my combination skin.” — Snoopy
“My husband is outdoors pretty much every day and in the sun a lot, and I’m a pain in his ass about sunscreen but he says it makes him break out. We’ve tried a few different ones, and […] I got Aveeno Absolutely Ageless SPF 30, and I don’t detect any sunscreen smell or oiliness.” — Kate
“For my no-makeup makeup days I use IT Cosmetics CC Cream which has 50+ spf. It’s tinted enough that it gives light coverage, while I feel good about the spf.”
La Roche Posay happens to be my go-to SPF face moisturizer. I also like Coola, which is lightweight, smells great, and isn’t too greasy. Do you have one you recommend that isn’t listed here?
