SPF moisturiser - regular sunscreen ok?

Yet another SPF question! I was on hols in Cornwall last week and it was quite sunny, so I wore Boots Soltan Factor 15 on my face every day. My skin looks great, feels very moisturised and looks quite glowing. I've been wearing Soltan as my daily moisturiser since I got back.

My question is - is it ok to use regular, holiday-type sunscreen as a daily moisturiser? It feels like it's doing my skin a lot of good in terms of moisture, but do I need a more specialised daily suncreen? And is factor 15 high enough for year-round wear? I have quite fair skin and a rosy complexion
Thanks in advance!

I personally would go higher as you are fair 30 min

Clinque and Ultrasun do moisturising sun creams for face

Thanks Cybil, may look at Soltan factor 30 - cheap and cheerful and working so far!
