So, I`m looking for a moisturizer to sooth my irritated skin which gets red whenever i go out, usually during school. My skin is very acne prone, sensitive, dry and oily. I`ve tried Cetaphil's lotion but it seem to harsh and was making my redness even worse. I've been looking at looking to buy Aveeno`s Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 or SPF 30, do you think that would be a good investment even if it`s quite expensive to me ($25). and should I get the SPF 15 or 30 ?

Thanks.

I heard Aloe vera moisturizers are good for calming down the skin and reducing redness.

Check out a review for Neutrogena's Sensitive Skin Sunblock SPF 30:
http://www.beautyped...V9E7Ggx8l3H7A==

It also contains titanium dioxide as it's sunblock instead of a chemical sunscreen, which is great, and titanium dioxide is an excellent sunblock.

Physician's Formula might work for you as well: http://www.beautyped...7BTUq/W9dKxSQ==

One thing to keep in mind with these is whether either of them contain nanosized particles of titanium dioxide less than 30nm. If so, there is controversy about whether or not your body can absorb these through the skin. You might check out Elta MD's line, as the particles are bigger than 30nm, and I believe this one is for sensitive skin: http://www.eltamd.co...etail.aspx?p=18. I use another of their sunscreens and absolutely love it. It doesn't go on white, and it's well-formulated.

Good luck. smile.gif

I've tried that Aveeno's moisturizer a few times and it's just not impressive enough. It's a pretty basic moisturizer to me... it never "calmed" as much as I expected it should from the packaging. I really love Olay products and La Roche Posay memoryl XK moisturizer w/ SPF.
