I love the Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Serum. Mouth full haha. Only thing I dislike is the pricetag.. Not sure if it has SPF though.

Same here, it also provides great coverage to my freckles! Win-Win!

Thread Starter 

I went to the Shu Uemura counter the other day and the lady there recommended their SPF50 sunscreen. I really like it! It is pricey but it works and it doesn't make my make up slide around or make me greasy. I mix it with my daily moisturizer and it becomes the 2 in 1 product that I've been looking for. I find that I don't really need a primer with it but I do set my make up with a spray afterwards.

I have been using my cerave daytime moisturizer which I think has a SPF of 30, but since I have just started using retin a, I bought la Roche posey anthelios SPF 60 since I am scared to death of the sun now!

My favorite is Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer SPF 30 in light tint. I like this for the whole year though. It blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Some people thinks the light tint is too peachy and dark but it does not cover anything. It just evens out my skin tone with an instant healthy glow.

Hydranorme ( La Roche Posay, without a SPF but highly effective, greasy though )

Benefit cream ( no SPF either but a good moisturizer and very soft too )

Chanel Hydra Beauty serum ( very soft, effective to apply before your daily moisturizer or even before makeup )

Estee Lauder DayWear ( effective )

Has anyone tried mixing sunscreen into their foundation? I wonder if that would work. I don't usually stay out under the sun for too long but during my commute to work I do tend to get to exposed to a decent amount of sun for around 15 to 20 mins. I've been wearing a gel sun screen with spf 26 for the past month and it sits well under my make up. But I'll definitely look into powder type sunscreens so I can re-apply if I need to. Thanks for all the help =)



I wouldn't recommend mixing sunscreen into your foundation, as sunscreen needs to be applied liberally to protect you best. Just use a moisturizer with a sunscreen, I use Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer SPF 15 for Normal Skin. There ARE powders that you can apply throughout the day as a touch up that conveniently include SPF, but i wouldn't rely on them solely. Bare Minerals Mineral Veil SPF 25.

I have mixed my moisterizer (Eucerin Face moisturizer) with my MUFE foundation.  I do that when I want less coverage.  Works fine!

Eucerin Daily Face Protection Moisturizer SPF 30

I always use my moisturizer first. Sometimes an SPF can create a barrier on your skin and not allow your moisturizer to penetrate into your skin. I absolutely LOVE jouviance's SPF 30. It's pure titanium dioxide, ergo, pretty natural and great for your skin. It's a Canadian product but I think you could order it online :) http://www.jouviance.com/product/specific-skin-care/Essential-Daily-Protection-SPF-30

I have this coming to me and am excited to use it..What do you like about it?

post #43 of 45

Yes, I agree... I actually have found using a moisturizer and a separate sunscreen to be more effective.  Shiseido sunscreen is really good.  Before using it I always hated using sunscreen, because it can be so greasy and unpleasant, and feels heavy.  The Shiseido kind is almost watery and looks odd (like white-out in the bottle) but goes on totally clear. NO white cast or anything (I'm darker skinned so that's important for me), and because it's thin it goes on over my moisturizer or makeup really easily.  The kind I use is "Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 For Face" which is in a white bottle (their older version is in a blue bottle).  They also make one for face/body combined, which is a little thicker.


But if you're looking to save a step in your routine- What about using foundations that have SPF?  Both powder and liquid brands more and more include an SPF.  I like the idea of using a setting powder with sun protection; but I don't know how effective they truly are.  I tried out the Physician's Formula airbrushing powder because it has SPF, but even the darkest shade available was still too light for me.
