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.

Melissa, I have a question - does this also work for acne scars?  I have a couple samples already of Cliniques Even Better Correcting that I haven't used yet.  My problem is not what I would call "dark spots" but  "pit marks" from late-onset acne on my cheeks.  I know there are many "brightener" products on the market but I don't think this is exactly what I need for my problem.  Also, while I don't have acne anymore, my skin is sensitive.  I am wondering what is best to use for this and I was curious if there is any mosturizer with a built-in primer that would do that trick to smooth out my skin before make up application.  In-store cast members have given me BB creams and regular mosturizers but that is not quite what I want.  Thanks for anyone with suggestions! :smileyhappy:

Hi Britieeee. I think it would work well for scarring. Are the spots that you have indented? or is it more of just a scar? You might like the Bare Minerals bareVitamins - Skin Rev-er Upper which contains both glycolic and salicylic acids so refines skins texture! http://www.sephora.com/barevitamins-skin-rev-er-upper-P61007?skuId=749234
