SPF 30+ moisturizer

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good moisturizer (not just a facial sunscreen) with at least SPF 30? I find it frustrating that dermatologists recommend daily use of at least SPF 30, and yet there are very few moisturizers that have this level of protection!

Purpose has a 30spf, I use it in winter,when my skin is drier, and I have really sensitive skin....

I've tried Eucering Extra Protective Moisture Lotion with SPF 30, it works pretty good IMO, and I also have used Purpose SPF 15, didn't see the SPF 30 when I got it...

The Eucerin 'redness relief' is good, too it's just harder to find.

Eucerin is readily available where I live if you need some, let me know! A great line and awesome for sensitive skin types.

Murad has one that is 30 I think. I use the one from Murad with 15 and I love it!

Lancome's Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Cream/Lotion UVB/UVA protection!!! LOVE it! But I guess I would since I work for Lancome...

Murad has one, Peter Thomas Roth, Korres, a few others... check sephora out, you should be able to find some there and maybe even request samples to see how they work on your skin?

Make sure if you use a moisturizer with sunscreen, that it is photostable (contains Mexoryl or Helioplex) and has sufficient UVA protection. I couldn't find one that had this but I think Neutrogena makes one, but it's not in Canada yet.

It only has an SPF of 20 though... and people are saying it leaves a white film on your skin

I personally have not had an issue with a white film on my skin, or have I heard any of my customers complain. All you need is the tiniest bit!

My one call out to the white film left on the skin is lack of exfoliation. Whenever the skin is not prepped correctly it is quite easy to obtain a whitish film from any moisturizer. Whenever there is a buildup of dead skin on the stratum corneum (top layer; determines skin "beauty") any bit of moisture will mix with that to create a nasty glob of just "ew!"

However, I do agree that the SPF level should be higher. I am medium toned and so I don't burn easily. Therefore and SPF of 20 is sufficient. Being that the FDA just approved the mexoryl, Lancome did their best to put the product on the market ASAP. If you think about it, SPF 20 is a pretty good median for everyone.

Look for many other products containing mexoryl to come in the near future: body products, children's products, etc...all with SPF levels of 20 and higher!
