Does anyone have any recommendations for spf moisturiser that sits nicely under make up with no rolling etc? Thanks

Thanks to recommendations on this board I've started using Biore Watery Essence and (albeit after only one week of using) I think it might be The One!

I've been looking fifteen years for an SPF that doesn't:

A) smell gross
B) sting eyes
C) make me spotty
D) dry out my skin
E) leave a zincy white cast
F) cost £££
G) look disgustingly greasy
H) allow me to get burned even after liberal application

It hasn't been hot enough to test H yet but the rest all seem fine!

I second biore watery essence spf50.
Doesn't look greasy, doesn't cause irritation to my eyes or doesn't sting my sensitive skin.
Only negative is there seem to be no Uk based sellers of this product so takes ages to come (mine was from Japan).

Body Shop Skin Defence spf 50 is really good too - very light watery texture, doesn't leave a white cast, great for my combination skin.

La Roche-Posay 50+

I agree with Koala, I use la Roche Posay, can pick it up in Boots and isn't pricy. I put it on after my normal moisturiser every day and also down my neck and chest area. And the back of my hands. I don't want to get any wrinklier!

Sali Hughes did an article yesterday in The Guardian about combined SPF/ primer products if that's any use?

So you'd use your normal moisturiser and put the SPF/ primer on top and then, of course, make up.
