SPF cream/gel to wear under make up: What do you use?

I'm starting to get pigmentation spots on my face and I'm keen to keep them at bay and for this, I understand I need a good SPF product.

The make-up I use claims to be SPF 15 but doesn't seem to be doing the job and so I was wondering if anyone could recommend SPF to wear under make-up without looking oily. Ideally it'd be a gel (does this exist?) but something easily absorbed.

Estee Lauder daywear is very good and comes in SPF 50.

I use an SPF 50 called Sun Sense. I buy it on Amazon for about £13. Has a nice "invisible tint" (whatever that actually means! It looks nice by itself anyway smile ) and I wear it daily under makeup.

Once I've finished the foundation etc I give my face a light dusting of Chanel translucent powder which counters any oiliness.
