Can anyone recommend a good one with a high SPF?

I've been using Clinique superdefense but it's very greasy and makes my skin shiny.

Heliocare Hands down. Plastic surgeons / aestheticians recommend this, cheap, anti aging, SPF 59 and very light

I use an Ultrasun Anti Aging Factor 30 Face cream. Not greasy or chalky.
DD has some Benefit Dreamscreen which she likes (Factor 45)

I'm using Cerave Day which has ceramides and is SPF 30 which I love.
I just wish it was a higher SPF. It looks great under makeup

Signalref which Heliocare do you mean? I got some in a red and white tube and it's greasy as anything. Makes my face really shiny

Estella, according to someone I know who has had skin cancer, their specialist has said that there is virtually no difference between factor 30 & 50 so factor 30 is what you should aim for. Hth.

Olay Complete SPF 30. It's cheap and non greasy. Also available in supermarkets!

I had a look at Olay Complete today, it's SPF 15 not 30....?

Decorhate is right. But you need to take into account that we rarely use enough SPF to give the stated protection. IMO that's where the 50 has an advantage.

I prefer physical blocks, as opposed to chemical, like this one. It's good but not perfect, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect one.
