So are you all wearing SPF over moisturiser and under foundation (if you wear it) everyday now it's summer?

I find serum + sunscreen a lot less mucky feeling in the summer. As long as the serum is a nice fresh moisturising one.

Yes I always wear serum so that sounds like the best option actually for me, thanks flashman

It's the mucky feeling I'm not liking you see.

Yep, everyday all year round. Don't wear foundation very often though. I've had skin cancer, and do everything I can to protect myself.

No. Both my moisturizer and foundation have an SPF. For this country, when it isn't that sunny, and I'm not going to be outside for more than an hour or so, it's just not necessary. If itls hot and sunny and I'm planning to be outside for a greater part of the day, I do.

I never wear any SPF in this country. I try to have a walk every day with no make-up on to get some sun on my skin. I have had a serious vitamin D deficiency and take every opportunity now to get sun. I am going to Cyprus soon so may put some sun protection on when there as it will be very hot.

I wear moisturiser, Coola Mineral Sunscreen SPF30 and foundation. I love Coola, it's matte and feels exactly like a makeup primer when on the skin. Not greasy at all.

No I use moisturiser with SPF and my powder apparently has 50SPF as well.

Interested in that Coola sunscreen though as the one I have is only 20 and it's hard to find a higher one that doesn't bring me out in spots.

I like the Biore watery essence, SPF 50. I get it on Amazon for about £8.

Nope - I work in an office and in natural light for about an hour per day
If am in Greece I would but it is another marketing con and spf brings me out in spots

Felicia it's really good I have super sensitive skin and I've been using it everyday. I think that you can buy it from Cult Beauty now, I had to have it shipped from the US. envy

I use BB cream with an SPF in it.

I'm really liking the ultrasun face that came in the M&S beauty box, I wore it today over my serum and I think I actually prefer it to all my moisturisers at the moment as it's surprisingly not greasy at all it's nice and matte.

I use the ultra light factor 50 one from la Roche Posay - I hate feeling greasy but this doesn't have that effect
