I'm coming to the end of my moisturiser and would like to try something new.
I have combination skin and get one or two spots, due to hormones i guess, at certain times of the month.

Anybody got any recommendations?:)

Neutrogena face lotion with spf and dove sensitive spf 15 face cream.
The problem with those is that you need to apply 1/4 tsp (that is a lot, much more than you'd usually use) to get the labelled protection. To put a better sunscreen on top doesn't work, as the Neutrogena s/s is chemical. And chemical protection does not add up, so you only get the protection of the one you applied first.
So best either use a better sunscreen instead of moisturizer, or a basic moisturizer with s/s on top. :)

I never realized that 1/4 tsp was needed to get the labelled protection, even though I use about 1 tbsp on my face, neck, and part of my chest.

If you ask me, the whole cosmetics industry is foul. There is so much important information that is not passed on to consumers. :shake The amount of sunscreen needed to get the labelled protection is definitely one missing piece of information that has bothered me for years now. :madbeating

I too have combination skin (it's the bane of my existence!) and I would recommend either Cetaphil or Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. However, the best piece of advice I can give you is to make sure you use toner. A good one will both give moisture where necessary and de-flake without making your skin oily. I like C.O. Bigelow Rose Water Skin Tonic (you can get it at Bath & Body Works).

That is awesome advice!! I do the same thing and my skin feels even softer and the lotion goes on smoother:thumbsup

I also use Clinique's Dramatically different moisturizing lotion and it feels really nice on the skin and not greasy:love
