The moms on this sight are so much more savvy than I about skin products. Is there a moisturizer with sunblock that does not leave your face somewhat greasy feeling?
Thanks in advance!

So What Happened?

Thank you so much for sharing all your product suggestions with me. I will be going shopping with my daughter on Friday, and am so eager to check out those new (to me) sunblocks.
I truly appreciate your time,

I like Matte Finish Photo-Age Protection SPF 30 from DDF - Doctor's Dermatologic Formula. I got it at Sephora in the Penney's in Flower Mound. It doesn't feel greasy at all. I use a Retin A product, so I need good protection and it has worked well for me.

I use Oil of Olay Daily Defense spf 15 for every day. It's really light and works well. If you're going to the park or pool though, you will definately want a stronger sunscreen.

I've had great experience with Clinique. Another good one I use regularly is Coppertone Oil Free Faces. When at the beach, I use the clear zinc oxide for extra protection.

Good luck

I have loved Kiehls since I worked for Neiman Marcus (1994-2000). You can buy this product at several places. I think they even have a store in Highland Park. It's really reasonable in price, it lasts a LONG time, and it's natural. I have sensitive skin and I can wear this.

Check it out. I hope this helps!!!

Hi S.! I found a great new product last summer. It's called Sunforgettable made by Colorescience. It's a sunscreen powder made from minerals. It's pricey, but worth the money to me. I paid about $50 last year, but once you have the brush, you can buy refills cheaper. It comes in "clear" and "almost clear". You brush it on your face just like powder and it's a sunscreen. It doesn't even feel like a sunscreen. I can't stand that greasy feeling of other lotions. Mine is 30 spf. You can check their website for more information. It got mine in Allen at the Salons of Eaton Court. Good luck!

I like Suntegrity Skincare All Natural Face Moisturizer SPF 30. A little goes a long way and it leaves a nice silky finish on your skin. It's not greasy at all. It costs about $45 a bottle, but should last 2-3 months with every day use. Also, this stuff is great if you have rosacea as it seems to take out some of the redness and evens out the skin tone.

Hi there, I saw someone mentioned minerals....I carry a mineral makeup that gives you the look of flawless skin, covers very well, but doesnt feel heavy what so ever. It has an spf of 15! And it is water resistant. I know we hate the oily feeling but believe it or not, the oils in our skin help prevent wrinkles! If you have any questions you can call me! www.beautymarkboutique.com
