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.
In a nutshell, I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I have 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'm still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.
Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg every month for 6 months
Products Used While On Accutane & still currently using, as my skin hasn't returned to its normal state yet:
Cleansers: Plain 'ol Oatmeal or sometimes no cleanser at all (AM) // Avalon Organics CoQ10 Repair Facial Cleansing Milk (PM)
Toner: Rosewater or George's Aloe Spray (usually only PM)
Moisturizers: Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen for Face, SPF 50 (AM) // Argan Oil or Avocado Oil (PM)
Other: Reviva Labs Vitamin E Stick for around my eyes
Bausch & Lomb Soothe XP-Extra Protection Emollient Eye Drops
Manual exfoliation once a week with Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub
^^^ which may or may not have been ideal, but the flakes got pretty bad and were definitely noticable!

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.
this one is my personal favorite - i love, love, love the regenerist line - they sell this one in spf 15 as well.
