An oil free moisturiser with SPF?

Does anyone know of one? I want a moisturiser with an SPF15 but all the ones I can find are 'anti-ageing' one which are too rich for my skin. I usually use an oil free / anti shine type of moisturiser.

And if it doesn't break the bank, I'll be super pleased.

Same problem. I was using (and loving) Boots Expert anti-blemish day moisturiser SPF 15,then 2 week's ago I discovered that
it's been discontinued.
I,ve tried various brands and my skin always becomes clogged and bumpy within 3 to 4 days,- along my face resembling a chip pan throughout the day.

Agreed. Finding anything oil-free with SPF (sunscreen or moisturiser) is like the Holy Grail. I'm sick of looking like a greasy pizza whenever I'm "protecting" my skin. And the blocked pores last for weeks after I've discontinued use.

I found a great one in Spain about 5 years ago (foto-something) but even that's been discontinued.

I'll watch this with interest!

Olay Complete spf 30 has zinc oxide and is not greasy. And there's Eucerin with zinc oxide too -- don't know if you'd have to buy this on the net though.

Kiehls do a good oil free very light moisturiser with SPF.

The Avene range is really good for oily skin. if you answer a few questions on their website it will tell you which products are best for you. here is the website

I just noticed that this had kicked off.

I have found this in the meantime but not tried it yet. You can get it a bit cheaper on ebay.

I'm off to check out that link.

I've got oily skin and use this, it's great value:- aily-UV-Fluid/30292011?parentContainer=SEARCHolay

Someone here on S&B recommended Mac Prep and Prime SPF 50. D=CAT21867&PRODUCT_ID=PROD74258

It's an absolutely brilliant product, a really matte finish, but £20 for 30ml and although I used it all summer not sure it's justified in winter.

Clinique does a moisturiser for oily skin and it has an SPF 25 too. Not cheap though, £35.

I have used Boots Botanics Pore Perfecting SPF 15 in the past, tis cheap (2 for £7.50) at the mo so if you don't like it then not end of the world.

Try aveeno products. Sadly most of them are sold on amazon but they work wonders. I have been using Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF-15 UVA/UVB for almost 5 years now and I love it but I usually have to order it for amazon....

I second the Avene suggestion. Also steer clear of the oil-free, mattifying body shop SPF (possibly in their sea weed collection?) I thought I'd found the perfect oil-free SPF but it gave me terrible spots.
