What's a good moisturizer that provides SPF protection and corrects skin problems?

Hello all - 


I'm looking for a good moisturizer that provides SPF protection and lightens dark spots/generally evens out skin tone. If it could be oil free, that'd be fantastic as well, but I think most moisturizers that have SPF tend to have some oils or the other in them.


I've been told that BB creams generally offer what I'm looking for. I've only worked with Smashbox's BB cream in Dark, and I didn't like how it matte-fied my skin or had color in it. I touch my face a lot (why I tend to avoid makeup as it is) and I hated having brown fingers! I've been using Specific Skin Care's day moisturizer, but thought I might look to see if there was anything else out there that wasn't as heavy.

Hi Serak,

I think I found the perfect product for you! Have you ever tried the Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 20. It's oil free and also helps even your skintone and lighten dark spots.

I think that you would also benefit from using a CC cream, which will also help with dark spots and even out skintone. The Clinique and Peter Thomas Roth will be good options for you since they come in a wider variety of shades.

Thanks for the tips, Melissa! I think I've asked about the Clinque Even Better skin tone corrector, and I believe that it had a pretty powerful bleaching agent. Since my skin is dark, I was concerned that it would lighten my skin overall, and not just the dark marks. That scared me away from even giving it a try, as I was looking for something a bit more natural and not as drastic. Do you know if the CC cream contains the same sort of bleaching agent?

Hi SeraK- You're very welcome! The Clinique Even Better Corrector actually doesn't have any skin bleaching type ingredients in it. My suggestion would to visit your local Sephora Store to request a sample of bothSmiley Happy I found another moisturizer that you might too! The Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which is also oil-free. I had bad acne scars and this product gently faded them over time. It was also extremely hydrating.

I totally didn't even think that I could ask for samples! I'll definitely do that the next time I'm in. Thanks again for the recommendations!
