Recommendations for SPF 50+ facial moisturiser?

I work outside a lot and my face is shrivelling up like an old prune. I was thinking of buying this to help avon but wondered if it is any good. Has anyone tried it or have any recommendations for high spf moisturisers?

Ultrasun range is available form QVC and has good reviews. i use Clinque SPF30 and like that

I think they are all much of a muchness really, that Avon one looks good though

I use Clinique City Block SPF 40 which I really like as it's oil free. If you work outside though you need to be re appying it regularly rather than just putting it on in the morning under make up.

Invisible Zinc and Hissy Fit ranges are both SPF 50 and Australian brands I think, who have a more stringent testing policy on their SPF ratings due to the climate. They also do foundations and tinted moisturisers too.

I use Lancome Genifique Soleil SPF50, its especially for the face. I use this because I have had skin cancer (never want it again) and this cream goes in really well. Definitely worth the £.

I then use a tinted moisturiser from Benefit called You Rebel, it has SPF15 but of course that doesn't give you extra protection on top of the SPF50.

Clarins have a new spf 50 for the face out too.

Use a separate sun block.

Sounds like you need a decent anti-aging moisturiser and these don't tend to come with SPF, or shouldn't, as it makes the anti-aging ingredients unstable.

Either that or use a basic moisturiser with SPF and a good serum beforehand.
