Reporting For (Double) Duty: The 8 Best Moisturisers With SPF

SPF moisteriser

If living Down Under teaches you anything, it’s that Vegemite and Tim-Tams are food groups, a kangaroo isn’t actually a viable mode of transport and SPF is a non-negotiable feature of any skincare routine.

Thanks to a big fat hole in the O-zone layer, the sun here packs a seriously, seriously big punch. So you need to make sure you’re wearing SPF every day; and what better way to remember than to incorporate it into your moisturiser? We’re all about streamlining that beauty routine.

Here are the 8 best double duty moisturisers that contain a hefty dose of SPF.

1) Aveeno Positively Radiant Sheer Daily Moisturiser

It also offers SPF 50 and contains a host of potent antioxidants.

Another splurgier option but well worth it for the luxurious, non-tacky texture, this oil free moisturiser from Perricone MD guards against natural aggressors like pollution, wind, UVA and UVB and chemical irritants.

Anti-rays and anti-pollution, this pioneering formula by Elizabeth Arden is formulated with a powerful collection of antioxidants that help neutralise the effect of free radical damage. This punchy tube is also a mineral-based broad spectrum SPF 50, which protects against UVA and UVB damage.
