Best Moisturizer/spf Included

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for some good moisturizers with an SPF included as I also have really fair skin. The one I have can still leave dry patches...

I really like Eucerin Dermo Hydro Purifyer SPF 30 moisturiser. Not sure if it's available where you are, I'm in the UK and it's a new product here.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 15 or 35. I highly prefer the consistency of the SPF 15, but that's really not much protection. The SPF 35 version is thicker and you have to use more product, but they're both great and neither of them break me out. I really trust Neutrogena for SPF.


My Story:
I've had mild-to-moderate adult on-set acne (inflammatory) that started creeping up on me towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've attempted, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and/or had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I've never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I can only offer my humble advice based on my own personal experiences.



Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg/day every month for 6 months

Began 2nd course of Accutane on 10/13/2015
Even though my acne came back very mildly & nowhere near as bad as it used to be, I refused any topicals or antibiotics since I've already been through the "last resort" treatment without any problems.

My targeted length of time & dosage is currently the same as the 1st round.

My skin is really sensitive, especially to lotion and gel sunscreens --- which cause redness and breakouts. I've tried them all without success, even so-called ones for sensitive skin. The only thing that works for me is using non-comedic DML lotion (developed for post-cosmetic surgeries and acne) and then applying Physician's Choice mineral pressed powder with non-chemical SPF 30 (....forget exact named but will include that soon...). I just changed to this make-up because it is talc-free and has the SPF. For some reason my skin can tolerate powder with SPF but not lotion. I talked with the company and they said this powder was especially made for acne-prone skin. The zinc oxide in it, besides being a sunscreen, is very soothing and healing.

Maybe you should give this a try.

i love olay products they are great and wont break you out. they have 15 and 30 and its cheap. i tried cerave products before and they were just too thick and greasy for me. i like light coverage when it comes to lotions but the higher the spf i feel the thicker the product. you can also get spf in your makeup and then you wouldnt have to apply an additional product as well.
