I need something that has a sunscreen and anti aging if possible.

My dermotologist friend recommended Oil of Olay to me a few years back, and that's what I use. I buy the one with SPF, but they have a bunch of different formulations.

I've used Oil of Olay for sensitive skin with SPF 15 for years. The last time I had a facial the woman mentioned that I have very little sun/environmental damage. I credit Olay moisturizer, it is the first thing I put on when I get out of the shower.

...And now it's time for a breakdown

I've been using Origins Starting Over for a few years and I am very happy with it. I know it has sunscreen, but I can't remember the number. In addition, I use a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen during the day as well.

Olay Regenerist - their daily moisturizer with SPF (you can get 15 or 30). Awesome and not very expensive.

Another vote for Olay. I've tried the higher-end stuff and still haven't found anything better than Olay.

I have been using various forms of Shiseido moisturizer every day for 37 years. I started with the lightest moisturizer for young skin when I was 16. Over the years, as I got older, I changed to formulas for older skin.

I love it.

I live the josie Maran daily moisturizer. It goes on light and is almost fragrance free ( I can't tolerate strong moisturizer smells). It also has an SPF in it.

I am 37, fair skinned and have sensitive, somewhat oily acne prone skin. About a month ago I started using Aveeno Smart Essentials day moisturizer spf 30 and really like it. I feel like my skin is smoother and does not get oily or filmy like with other sunscreen moisturizers in the past. I have had fewer breakouts as well. I think the Smart Essentials line is aimed at preventing aging but they have others that are geared towards improving signs of aging. I chose this one due to my tendency towards oiliness and acne but am curious as to how well the others work. I don't really have signs of again anywhere except fine lines under my eyes, though, so maybe I could just start with the eye cream.

SOs mom turned me onto this. It is awesome - especially if you live in a dry climate.

What can I post about?

My dermatologist recommends cerave am, which has sunscreen in it and I also use the cerave pm sporadically at night. I usually get it at Walmart and it is about $15 a bottle.

I use origins VitaZing during the day. It has some SPF, slight tinted effect and my skin (52 yr old skin) loves it. I use the Origins ginseng eye cream as well.

It's not the passage of time that heals. It's what you do with that time.

I use Rapid Tone repair by Neutrogena.
I use the day and night version and not only have them improved my dark areas but have soften up lines around my eyes and my skin seems to drink it up.
I'm 44 if that helps.

I've been using Kiehls for many years. It has SPF 15 in it. I think it's just called Daily Moisturizing Lotion.

I used Olay for a long then my aunt started giving me expensive skin care products (she works in a plastic surgeon office). My skin got horrible. I recently went back to Olay.

There's a company called KaraVita that sells an entire line of skin products that are aimed at protection and healing of the skin. I use many products in their line, including the moisturizer, and I've even noticed an improvement in my rosacea.

My mom loved the effect that it had on HER skin so much that she became a consultant so that she could get the products at a discounted rate and share it with others.

I have dry, flaky but somehow still prone to acne sensitive skin and my daytime pick is Coppertone For Faces Only Sunscreen with moisturizer. Goes on clean but moisturizing, with good sunscreen, about $8 tube.

My great grandmother, (who passed away 24 years ago), always used the simple, original, basic Oil of Play for moisturizer and Dove cream to cleanse her face.

At 92, she had some wrinkles, but she had the most beautiful skin.

I used to only use Oil of Olay products, but I have also found that I like Neutrogena as well.

I like either of the two products mentioned above and I would say, just take some time and look at what they have to offer, as there are many different choices that might work for you.
