Can anyone suggest an SPF moisturiser?

I have tried using olay's spf moisturiser but i found it too greasy. I have oily skin as it is and sunscreen always seems to turn my face into an oil pit. Has anyone tried an spf for the face that isn't oily at all? I've been searching for one for ages and still haven't found one I like. Any suggestions?

I use Olay Complete All Day Moisture Lotion for Oily/Combo skin. It doesn't make my face more oily and the price is right. The best SPF for oily skin is Co Bigelow's SPF 15 Extra Light Face Lotion. It keeps your face matte all day long, no oil breakthroughs. I love it. It's about 12.00 for 2 oz and a little goes a long way. It will last you forever.

That is probably easiest. We have a store at the mall. You can also get some of their stuff at Bath and Body Works as well.

Did you try Olay's Sensitive Non-Greasy SPF 15 Moisturiser? I have oily skin and it definitely doesn't make my skin oily. I somtimes use various products (sun screen, other moisturisers) and you are right they make your face all oily. I do agree that the Olay Sensitive moisturiser can probaly make it appear oily, but it looks less oily to me than the other moisturisers out there. Pablo

I wasn't aware that there was a non-greasy Olay. I shall look out for it! Thanks.

none of them have a high enough factor for me, but I really like Macs factor 50 primer. you wear it over your moisturiser, and it isn't at all oily. it gives a nice matt finish to the skin, doesn't feel heavy or cloggy, and you can wear foundation over it if you do normally, or not at all if you don't wear foundation.

I use Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser. It is SPF15 and feels really light on your skin.

Have you tried the ones for oily skin? I often go to Walgreens and the lady that works there seems to be very well informed about skin care and cosmetic's in general..Ask her for something for oily skin,something that soaks into the skin...They do not have a person to help you at places such as Walmart & some of the cosmetic counters at Macy'e are to expensive and Walgreens has a person there in the cosmetic;s that can help you..

I know this advice isn't going to be any use to you, but here it goes anyway! Wear a hat!! Sorry, I hate wearing sunscreens too. I do have an SPF screen which I use on me and the kids if I know we'll be out int he sun for a while, but I prefer to go without and just make sure everyone is covered up. I've never used an SPF moisturiser. Do you have to keep reapplying it? I think I'd be sacred of relying on it as wearing it might make me think I was 'safe' when in actual fact it's not strong enough or needed topping up.
