This is one of my personal favorites; the SPF 50 leaves me without any trepidation of getting burnt, while the formula itself is fragrance-free and gentle enough to use with skin issues such as acne, rosacea, and melasma, It dries rapidly so putting on makeup can be done shortly after applying.

Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 30 ($62, Dermalogica.com)
This product includes one of my favorite ingredients, evening primrose oil, for great hydration, while the product is recommended for mature or pre-maturely aging skin to work with your natural moisture barrier and delivers a great emollient to lessen the signs of lines and wrinkles. More of a medium-weight, thicker product, once applied you can understand how hard it works to firm your skin and restore balance.
