Any recommendations? Do you use the same in winter and summer?

Might help if we know a little about your skin. Dry? Oily? Combination?

Mine is combination. I love Philosophy's Hope in a Bottle, but it gets expensive. Clinique's Dramatically Different gel is pretty good. But lately I've been using Trader Joe's Nourish moisturizer. It seems to keep me very well balanced (even in winter), and is CHEAP!

Yep, people need to know about your skin type. Mine has actually changed as I have gotten older. It used to be oily/combination but now it is normal/dry.

In the winter time it is actually pretty dry, and I could use some suggestions as well.

I have combination/dry skin (age 56). I use Clinique's Dramatically Different (Hydrating) lotion for dry skin for daytime use in the winter (very harsh winters). In the summer, I use CeraVu facial lotion with 30 SPF (humid summers). At night, I use Oil of Olay Regenerist night cream, year round.

The brand from Trader Joe's sounds interesting. I'm always on the lookout for something less expensive if it works!

Do you happen to know the SPF on the Clinique that you use?

Well that is the downside ... there is no SPF with Clinique Dramatic Different lotion ... but I'm usually not outside a lot during the winter, and, if I am, I will dab on some CeraVu sunscreen on my nose and cheeks before applying Clinique. I don't mind a little sun in the winter as my skin is naturally very lightly tanned.

How strange. I wonder if they offer a product that has it that is good for that skin type.

I agree. On reviews online, I see a lot of complaints about no SPF for that particular line. I "think" there are other lines of Clinique lotions that may have the SPF, but are more costly ... sigh.

So, use a sun screen and apply a moisturizer on top or mix it in. Elta 45 spf is lightweight and blends nicely with a moisturizer.
