Which daily facial sunscreen do you wear?

So the sun is out and hopefully we will be seeing a lot more of it in the next few months. I'm not sure my SPF 15 moisturiser is going to cut it anymore.

What do you wear as sunscreen during day to day life at this time of year? As well as moisturiser or instead of? I have dry and dehydrated skin so need something fairly rich if using a single product, and I'm looking for at least SPF 30. Thanks

I'm currently using a Clinique Cityblock SPF 40, on top of moisturiser and under foundation. It works well - it doesn't break me out (LRP's sunscreen for acne prone skin was awful) and it doesn't make me oily or dry or leave a white cast on my skin.

Avene moisturiser factor 20

I am extremely cautious though and think suncreams are not stable for very long so even high factors degrade after a couple of hours - unless they contain zinc or titanium oxides.
I am not out for so long I need to worry and my make up contains a small amount too. I use a primer with titanium oxide - glow maximiser
Plus they are all very pore blocking due to the nature of the chemicals that absorbs UV

La Roche Posay anthelios ultra light fluid. Sometimes clinique cityblock but mostly anthelios.

Neostrata Sheer Physical Protection SPF50. Need a separate moisturiser.

Sunsense daily facial tinted SPF50. I like the LRP tinted spf 50 as well, but its more like a bb cream so use it when I would wear makeup.
If I'm going to be out for a long time (like out at an event) I use P20 spf 50 as nothing budges that and it really does last all day without reapplication.

I am ridiculously fair and burn very easily (am red from an hour yesterday, in the midlands) so I do need sunscreen

I bought this one recently

Protect and Perfect

It's a tinted cream - and the colour is perfect. i thought Fair would be too light for me - but it's fine. Might be too dark for those who have a very light skin.

Also bought SPF 50 in untinted ,as they had a special offer on in Boots at the time (2 for £20)

Superdrug BB SPF30

City block 40. Wear it every single day.

Still get asked for ID to buy booze at 39.

Thanks to those who recommended products. Sounds like Clinique City Block may be worth a go!

Ultra sun is the today's special value on QVC today.
A few facial suncreams which might be worth a look?
