Am confused about SPF. Am I the only one?

What products should I use for maximum sun protection? I'm no spring chicken - yesterday I treated myself to some regenerist - but couldn't find any SPF rating on the container. What's best to use??

I put sun cream on my face every day as a moisturiser- I like Clinique face creme, its got SPF 30. Its also got high uva/uvb protection.

I've also got a tinted Loreal one which is SPF50 but if it gets in your eyes it KILLS

cybbo - is this about the maximum SPF you can get?

I just bought some Olay regenerist moisturiser SPF30. I'm hoping for great things smile I think the thing to look for is UVA and UVB protection. I use factor 50 suncream on my neck, chest and hands but it doesn't sit well under make-up.

I used to spend an absolute fortune on facial moisturisers but now I ONLY use this
It's brilliant, a lovely base for makeup too. I would really recommend you give this a go and see how you get on. I have been using it since the start of the year and my skin is thanking me grin

Pink I'm planning on getting some of that when my current stocks run out-it looks really good and is good under make up too according to gal that sells it on QVC

God it does burn your eyes. All the high factor ones do
