Dry skin and OLD ;-) but don't like the greasy, sticky formulas. Have tried so many brands without great success yet.

I haven't used the dry touch formula in Neutrogena yet--will try. Thought Walmart had the lower SPF.

I use Clarins something or other. Feels like nothing is on my skin. Perfect.
Iím a Blue eyed redhead so I am careful with sunscreen and will spend more.

OK folks, we were in to my husband's dermatologist yesterday for some small surgery and I asked him which goes on top - moisturizer or sunscreen. So here's the skinny, according to him, anyway.

The sunscreen goes on first, right out of the shower. The chemicals in the sunscreen need to be next to the skin. Moisturizer on top of that. For an off the shelf sunscreen, he likes Neutrogena.

I tried that method today and didn't like how it felt putting the sunscreen on first but I'll keep on with it. It's making my eyes water, though (and did yesterday when I put it on top of the moisturizer as well) so I don't know how long I'll be able to stand doing this before I have to switch brands. The dermatologist said sometimes you have to try and determine which ingredient is causing the eye watering (which sounds like an expensive thing to me).

You didn't say SPF requirement. I like the Oil of Olay moisturizer with SPF I get in a 2 pack at Costco.
It has a much nicer texture than the Neutrogena.

My daytime moisturizer has SPF 30 built right in. Cerave AM. Cheap but a great moisturizer and base sunscreen. If Iím out in the boat or in the sun full on...I use the Clarins. My makeup primer and light foundation also have sunscreens in them.

Here are the lower SPF versions on amazon:

SPF 30 https://www.amazon.com/Neutrogena-Dr...nscreen+spf+30

SPF 45 https://www.amazon.com/Neutrogena-Dr...nscreen+spf+45

See how you can buy just 1 SPF 30, but the SPF 45 comes in packs of 2? That's how they're sold in every brick-and-mortar store also.

Edit: I see that on amazon if you want just 1 it has to be SPF 55, and you have to buy 2 of the SPF 30.
Thank you, Atlantis! Great info!

Yep, this is what I use also. Most sunscreens for the face make my face sweat. Neutrogena doesn't do that to me.

cerave SPF 30 AM daily moisturizer lotion. Not thick, and it is broad spectrum. Also, SPF 15 is the bare minimum you should use. Better to use 30 or higher
