Do You Use Moisturizer With SPF?

Kim Conte

A while ago my dermatologist told me that my daily moisturizer should have an SPF of at least 30. And so began my search for a daily moisturizer with SPF 30 that didn't make my skin a shiny, greasy mess...

Guess what? I finally gave up. Don't tell my dermatologist!

I'm sure it's much healthier to wear moisturizer with such a high SPF, but the products were so thick that I couldn't even wear makeup on top of it. I finally settled on this Almond-Aloe Face Moisturizer from Earth Science ($10.95). I love it: It's paraben-free, really light, non-greasy, and has an SPF of 15...that's just going to have to be good enough, at least for now. I wear sunscreen anyways on top of my moisturizer if I'm going to be out in the sun for long periods of time.
