I really love the texture of Clarins Instant Smooth Foundation but unfortunately it doesn't have SPF - is there anything similar that doesn't cost the earth but does have an SPF of at least 15 or do I want the moon?

I'm a recent convert to Chantecaille tinted moisturiser; it's not exactly a budget option, but it is spf 15, moisturises and gives good coverage so it's like a 3 in 1; it was 65 Euors so probably around £40.

chantecaille do one with spf 15 - it's a tinted moisturiser but has reasonable coverage - possibly lighter than you want though? I don't know how much coverage the instant smooh provides?

I'd say it's light to medium coverage and quite matte - costs £22ish which is about my limit unfortunately - well until I win the lottery

You could use a layer of Clinique Super City Block underneath your Clarins base. It's oil free and fab, have used it for years. About £12 for decent tube.

Thanks for the suggestions - not sure about Clinique - tried their Dramatically Different Moisturiser once - and it was different - brought me out in spots - not quite the desired effect!
