Can you recommend a day moisturiser without SPF?

Just that!

I prefer to wear a separate SPF but struggle to find a moisturiser without one. I have very sensitive skin and am prone to redness so if any recommendations could cover those points too that would be great.

I use Neal's Yard Almond moisturiser. I am still prone to redness but it is nice and light.

A lot of the high end moisturisers without dangerous chemicals do not have SPF.

A lovely one is Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream (or a name like that).

Decleor do a couple of nice ones - I only stopped using due to no spf! Hydrafloral or the rose one for sensitive skin are both lovely.

Green people vita min fix 24 hour cream is lovely.

I'm currently using a No7 one that is SPF free as SPF is very irritating on my eyes. It's called Essential Moisture.

Thanks I shall have a look at all of those.

the reason no spf is that I have to use factor 50 (redhead, living in Spain) and there are few moisturisers with an sf so high. I also really like my suncream.

Thank you all.

Organic Surge moisturisers are lovely too. You can generally get them cheaper elsewhere than on their own website.

I second Dr Hauschka. I use the face milk, which has carrot in, which I believe is supposed to help with redness. I get spots using other moisturisers, but not this one.

Holland and Barrat Dr Organic range

I got put off tryind Dr. haushka by the strong smells. I thought they might make my skin react. Any opinions on this?

I do not have reddening, however I can easily gets spots from moisturisers though I do not from Dr Hauschka. At a large department store they may be able to give you a tiny trial tube, so I recommend you ask for one of those (I know they exist). I hope this helps.

Dr Hauschka stinks, I like eurecin which doesn't smell at all and works a treat
this is the one

PinkSwimGoggles Sun 20-Nov-16 21:47:07

weleda almond.
smells like marzipan and is lovely for sensitive skin

KindDogsTail Sun 20-Nov-16 21:52:05

Dr Hauschka smells of roses. It does not stink of anything bad. You may prefer no smell, though.

Thank you very much for all your suggestions. Lots to try to find one that suits me.

I really like Caudalie moisturisers, they are scented though but not very strongly IMHO. Very moisturising and good as a base to suncream (I do that during the summer).

Nivea Pure & Natural moisturiser.

It's great. I've used it for years.

Pluto30 Tue 22-Nov-16 09:28:19

The Nivea one has no scent, btw.

PNGirl Tue 22-Nov-16 09:30:24

Lush Imperialis. Very calming and no SPF.

Malin and Goetz vitamin E, my new favourite.
