thread title says it all really!
I have combination skin, and prone to the odd spot or two
not too wrinkly (yet!) and i am quite fair skinned so would like an SPF
have been using the Boots Expert stuff but not thrilled with it
thank you

I like Oil of olay total effects with SPF15

LizaRose Mon 13-Aug-07 12:58:55

Ditto oil of olay, I have used much more expensive ones that were not as good.

2 votes for oil of olay then

Allergic to Olay, makes me scratch my face half to bits.

I love Neutrogena Daily Moisturiser with SPF15. Unfortunately you can't get the tinted variety in the UK, but it is available just plain.

Sorry to be a bore but another Oil of Olay vote here.

My skin is combination as well and it moisturises the dry bits brilliantly but doesn't leave the oilier T zone feeling sticky. Not too pricy as well!

Yes I have comination skin and find the olay total effects better than anything else I tried (and I have tried a lot). Also liked the dermologica active moist but no spf in it.

I use the Clarins SPF 15 one. It is expensive but it lasts for ages and ages. It isn't greasy either.

vote for the clarins one too. a little goes a long way.

decisions, decisions ...

I am going away in September, i could treat myself to the Clarins one in Duty Free

Better still, pop into your nearest clarins counter and ask for a sample.

They also sometimes do a deal where you book a facial or make up lesson with them for a booking fee of £10-£15. You then get this refunded to spend on product, so you get their advice as well as makeup/facial for nowt.

Can't beat Olay

chonky Mon 13-Aug-07 13:22:58

Olay Illuminating (??) Moisturiser (the one that's about £7.49) - fab stuff

allgonebellyup Mon 13-Aug-07 13:25:20

Olay also makes my skin go up in flames, so not good for sensitive skin

LoveAndSqualor Mon 13-Aug-07 13:39:19

I have very fair skin and for the last couple of months have been using Clarins UV Plus - spf40. I'd highly recommend - I'm prone to the odd spot and this is one of the best moisturisers I've come across in that dept. Good under make-up too. Pricey but worth it.


RubySlippers Mon 13-Aug-07 13:42:21

thank you all
clarins is meant to be good for sensitive skin IIRC
am slightly torn as the Olay seems popular
may try both!

Slubberdegullion Mon 13-Aug-07 13:48:56

Vote for the olay here. I will never defect

I always look out for when Clarins have an offer on. If you buy two full size products (I get moisturiser and face scrub wash thing) then you get 4 trial sizes free. This usually keeps me going for six months or so 'til the next one comes around...

freebies are good!
malory - i used to use Nivea - may invest in one of their eye creams
