My problem with sunscreen is that I hate putting it on, and I hate the greasy feeling that it leaves. But recently I found the both Lubriderm and Aveeno both created regular lotions with suncreen. I is SPF 15 it covers both UVA and UVB, and it feels like regular lotion. So essentially I am killing two birds with one stone. I put lotion on to moisturize my skin and I am also putting suncreen on along with it. For my face I use a face lotion that is also a moisterizer and sunscreen blocker.
I am not sure what the SPF is all about, but my doc has always told me that as long as that it is atleast an SPF 15 than I am ok. Oh and I am also skin sensitive on my body and especially my face so to find things that work with sunscreen already in them is great for me.
