    @missd, the Elta MD is a moisturizing sunscreen (I use it as both a moisturizer and a sunscreen to streamline my products).

    Any mineral sunscreen with zinc will help with redness. I used to actually buy a mask for redness, and it’s active ingredient was zinc.
    I have dr. Jart’s cicarepair, which is a green tinted moisturizer (with spf30) that I use as a colorcorrector. When you put it on, it turns skin color.

    Wendy, do you find the Elta MD to be greasy? I’m combing this thread for recs as I’m in the market. I’m using CeraVe currently and I hate it bc of the greasiness.

    ETA: I’m fair/freckly and redness is a big factor for me as well. The hunt for a good moisturizing sunscreen combo w 30 spf or more feels eternal!

    The one I linked to on the last page has a matte finish. I’m back in humidity and it holds up well for me. I’ve heard great things about the EltaMD but I haven’t tried it yet.
    I’m very fair and freckly, too. Prince harry looks like my dad did when he was young. 😂

    I did see that Queer Eye episode and it looks like many color correcting sticks are only a few bucks. I have rosacea, so I’ll have to try it.

    I tried the La Roche spf 50 today in the drug store. It actually made my face STING and I don’t usually have sensitive skin.

    I bought the Vichy Ideal Soleil SPF 50 instead. Will let you guys know what I think of it.

    @missdre pain means it’s working. Beauty is pain. Their pigment corrector tingles too, but damn if it didn’t burn my age-related mole right off.

    Lol I’m not trying to burn off moles! I just want a moisturizer that protects me from the sun.

    Anyway! I bought the Vichy SPF 50 moisturizer and I’m also currently using the Vichy Aqualia night cream. However, once I use up that night cream I’m switching to the La Roche B5 Hyaluronic Acid cream. My doctor recommends that ingredient.

    My skin has been feeling and looking like shit recently and I just realize that I need to be taking better care of it.

    I second the early recommendation for Olay Complete SPF 30. Moisturizes, smells neutral, doesn’t sting or break me out.

    Aveeno sunscreens are also nice but a little rich for my combination skin in the summer.
