    Good morning! :wave3: And Happy Friday! :yess:

    I guess this question is more for the women of the forums, although you guys can answer it, too, if you'd like:

    Do you wear moisturizer? What is your moisturizer of choice?

    While I rarely wear make-up, I won't go out of the house without moisturizer. My choice is Olay Regenerist.

    What about you?

    Aveeno with SPF. They like to tweak the formula slightly every few years so whichever version is the current one. It think it is blackberry infused or something right now.

    I don't use it often enough. I like Olay Regenerist Serum because it's light and not greasy. If I put anything heavy on my face it drives me crazy and I have to wash it off after about 10 minutes.

    I've also developed a liking for Korean sheet masks, lol. I suppose it's the novelty, so I remember to use them, unlike regular moisturizer.

    I should wear a moisturizer with SPF in it because I burn so easily, but I hate wearing sunblock, it's so greasy.

    I hate the feel of sunblock too and am more conscious about SPF products now. In addition to the moisturizing lotion I use I wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF. It adds a bit of color without being noticeable and it looks natural.

    Currently Garnier SkinActives Hydrating 3 in 1. I'm still looking for a moisturizer with sunblock that doesn't smell gross or makes my skin break out with acne.

    I wear whatever I have around - I had a bunch of samples from a subscription to Macy's Beauty Box and now I have more moisturizer samples than I know what to do with. Frankly I think they all work as good as the next and none do any better than the other so which ever one I grab is the one I use.

    Yeah, most sunblocks make my sensitive skin break out. I don't know what to do. I've kind of given up and try to stay out of the sun. :(

    All the SPF moisturizers I've used make my face burn/sting (not sunburn, but some sort of sensitive skin reaction). Even "sensitive skin" formulas. So I don't know what's up with that.

    So what do you do to keep from burning? I need some tips please, or else I'll have to spend this summer mostly indoors like last summer. :(

    Oh, I can use regular sunscreen and wash it off when I come inside. I just can't use a daily SPF moisturizer.

    I don't wear a facial moisturizer, just St. Ive's moisturizing lotion. I don't burn (Indian blood?), so I don't really need a sunscreen.

    I have found the spray sunscreens seem less greasy to me than the lotion ones, but that might not be the same for everyone.

    I don't moisturize like I should.

    Lucky! It's so frustrating having pale skin that burns. :bawling:

    I burned once when I first moved to the mountain (5700 ft), but it wasn't bad and I've acclimated and have never burned since.
    My sister is like you, pale skin, blonde hair, green eyes and burns within 10 minutes of being outside. And yes, we are paternal. She took the English/German blood, I got the Indian (brown hair, brown eyes, darker skin).
