Help me find a cream, please

I need a body cream with sun protection - 15-25 SPF would be great. Not oily, greasy, or smelly sun creams but an actual body cream.

Is there such a thing? I would like to just put it on in the morning and not think about it again.

Kiehls do one with factor 30 and I think body shop have an aloe one.

I don't know where I would find, but we have a Body Shop nearby, thanks.

Do you remember what SPF the Body Shop cream has?

I think body shop is 15 but can't be sure. I think it is an aloe one. Kiehls can be found online or department stores. My local John Lewis has one.

green people do a factor 25 unscented which is suncream, but could do as a body lotion as is very neutral, not greasy or smelly

SPF 15 is OK, although I would prefer a 20. I live in a very sunny place and especially my arms burn to a crisp when going about my daily life. I also run 5 km x 3 times a week and would like to protect not only my face but also my legs and arms during these.

I don't live in the UK and delivery of online orders from the UK would be quite expensive, I fear.

I don't think Green People is available anywhere near me.

Clarins do them, their face creams are also anti ageing moisturisers aswell.

where are you based?

I'm in the South of France. We only get the major brands down here.

it's worth checking how much GP would charge to ship to France though?
alternatively, this french site is pretty good:
they stock Lavera, Weleda and Dr Hauschka
