face lotion w/ spf
What do you use for daytime face lotion? Spf, no spf?

I just checked skin deep but the cosmetic database is down. I found Organic black tea cream on Amazon-

Contains certified organic, antioxidant-rich black tea and vitamins A, C, and E.
SPF 20 achieved with gentle physical sunblock, titanium dioxide.
99% natural, biodegradable, non-toxic, paraben-free, and non-comedogenic (does not clog pores).
Vegan and 100% cruelty-free - neither the ingredients nor finished product were tested on animals.
60-day 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back.

Anyone try this or have any suggestions? Thanks!!

Kiehl's tinted moisturizer - when I feel like I really need added coverage or SPF (I believe it has 15). Otherwise I will just use my body lotion during the winter (plain Aveeno), a lightweight gel moisturizer during the summer (Garnier), and regular sunscreen on top if I need it. My skin is pretty forgiving, though.

I don't tend to get into all of the organic/vegan/cruelty free/speciality cosmetics just because they are so expensive, hard to find in my area, and just not my bag. I use very little cosmetics... Maybe if I used more or on a daily basis it would be more important? Sorry I don't have anything to offer on that front.

Coconut oil. I like the organic, unrefined kind.

I'm like Kelsey in that I don't worry too much about Eco-friendly cosmetics. I went to mama cloth earlier this year and use coconut oil and low-toxin body moisturizer but beyond that, I don't buy anything special. I love Clinique's City Block, it is he only facial sunscreen that doesn't break me out.

I use Kiss My face Face Factor
It's more a sunscreen with a little moisture, but I layer it on top of kukui oil (which is my daytime moisturizer)
