I dont want to wear much make up. Just maybe a little eyeliner and mascara and thats it. I need to think about a moisuriser with spf with kind of anti-aging properties ha ha....Something to keep my skin er youthful!! What do you use? Is it a moisturiser with a tint? Your regular moisturiser with an sunscreen over the top? Share your experiences with me please!!!

I'm thirties not forties but Clinique City Block is a fave with me. I like the sheer spf25 one. Little bit of a tint, doesn't feel greasy, smells ok.

I wear Ultrasun (they do a facial version) underneath and then about 30-45 minutes later can put whatever make-up I want over it.

Thanks everyone. On googling the kheils one, found the alpha h daily essential moisturiser with spf 40 so have bought that one as i use the liquid gold every few nights which is really good.

Actually its a spf 50 smile even better!

Just beware that it is a common fault for the Alpha H moisturisers pump to fail.I have just received the return slip to send mine back to QVC. If there is a fault you can send it back up to 6 months. A lot of peeps think that if it is after the date for returns then they are stuck with it.Good luck !

Yes, i saw that on the reviews. I bought a travel sized one that just squeezes. Thanks for that though smile

Oh can i ask, is it good though?

My DD was using it and liked it but the spring popped out of the top.You would have thought that they would have rectified the problem after all the negative reviews of the delivery system (not the product). I also use Alpha H. Being of ermm...mature years.

Just to add that I actually use the Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 in strong sunshine. For normal daily use I use Olay anti wrinkle Pro vital SPF 15. Should be higher but I switch between the two according to how bright it is outside.
