Hey guys, I have two moisturisers: dove essential nutrients spf 15 lotion and olay complete all day uv spf 15 lotion. the dove makes me look tired and sort of dead? (really defines the bags under my eyes) and i think the olay one may break me out.. i need to use one until i get get another one.. any suggestions anyone? would be much appreciated :(

The olay complete all day uv spf 15 lotion has reasonably good reviews, perhaps have a look on the reviews to see if there is more information that may assist with your decision.

looking tired vs breaking out..............hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I'll take the Dove and look tired any day over breaking out

you can put makeup over the moisturizer to look awake

at night try a little coconut oil under the eyes till you get your new moisturizer

Blegh, nonsense! L'Oreal doesn't sell sunscreens in Australia!

Maybe you can get the Elta MD one here: http://www.eltamd.co.nz/

The best day time moisturizer with SPF that I've tried is the Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Day Cream with SPF 15. That stuff is sooo soothing, it makes my skin feel amazing. It's kind of pricey, about $19, but it lasts a really long time because you only need a little bit.

I have also tried the Olay Complete one, I didn't really like it that much... It wasn't great. I highly recommend Desert Essence though, I got mine at whole foods. i'm sure you can find it online if you don't have a whole foods near you

Try any of the Neutrogena Dry Touch Sunscreens. Should be available in any aussie supermarket. You'll need a separate moisturiser product though since it's not enough by itself.

Moisturizers with SPF are generally not effective at all since you're not actually putting on enough sunscreen for it to work, a dedicated sunscreen product is what you need if you actually want any sun protection. What about neutrogena sport face sunblock?

There's no difference between a "moisturizer" with SPF and just a regular sunscreen. They're technically both "moisturizers".

As long as you apply at least 1/4 of a teaspoon for your face you'll be fine.

What do you mean? I was specifically referring to the products OP mentioned not having enough SPF. They might technically both be moisturisers but are not both effective sun protection.

OP, You've had 4 product suggestions in this thread:

Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Day Cream with SPF 15

EltaMD UV Clear

Neutrogena Dry Touch

Neutrogena Sport Face Water Resistant

Estranged is having trouble finding those products in a local store, and I'm trying to find a store in his area that carries it. No luck so far. :(

Estranged, go to your local Woolies and check out some of the sunblock there. I know there will be at least Neutrogena, Cancer Foundation, and Banana Boat sunscreen. (Woolies owns Countdown in NZ and we've got those 3 here) Look for SPF30+ or greater.
