Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing ones. We’ve written before about the best moisturizers for dry skin, the best sunscreens, and even heard from the Cut editors about their favorite sunscreens. But because you always need a little bit of both, here we’re rounding up the best moisturizers with SPF on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best moisturizer with SPF for dry skin

CeraVe Face Moisturizer with SPF 30

“This stuff has the best ingredients out of any expensive face cream or moisturizer I’ve tried. Yeah, you have other ones to do ‘extra’ stuff when you need it, but this is the best everyday one for me. Period. The ingredients have hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and niacinamides, which are awesome for your skin, and if you look at more expensive creams, they usually only boast ONE of those three (e.g. Dr. Jart Ceramidin cream, my previous Holy Grail). I like that it is light but holds moisture in, and hasn’t broken me out.”

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense 24-Hour Face Moisturizer With Hyaluronic Acid SPF 20

“I gotta say, I’m impressed. I’ve tried everything and still I got dry patches and stayed oily in my T-zone. My makeup didn’t last and I never looked ‘hydrated.’ But all of those things have been lessened dramatically with this moisturizer. My breakouts have nearly cleared up and my skin looks like it got plumped with water. At 35, I was annoyed with my skin and the products I was using. But this is the first moisturizer that feels like it’s working and leaves my skin looking healthy without all the grease. I will repurchase and I highly recommend this.”

Best moisturizer with SPF for sensitive skin

Olay Complete Daily Defense Moisturizer With SPF30 Sensitive Skin

“I swear by wearing sunscreen everyday, and this is the best. It doesn’t contain titanium dioxide (stuff that ages you but is in most sunscreens) and has zinc which is a great to block out UV rays. I love the pump, and one pump is enough for the entire face. There is no scent which I love! It blends in easily, and it keeps my dry face moisturized throughout the day. It has aloe and vitamin E in it which is also good for my skin. Blends easily under my makeup and doesn’t become a greasy mess at the end of the day!”

Best moisturizer with SPF for combination skin

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer

“I have that dreaded combination skin — oil slick of a T-zone with large pores that are prone to clogging, but very dry cheeks, especially in winter. Products for dry skin just make the oily parts worse, and products for oily skin make my cheeks flake. Most products ‘for combination skin’ are really for dry or oily skin and still cause problems. This one actually works well. My skin feels moisturized but not oily, and actually feels the same all over, which is pretty amazing. There’s no perfumy smell, either.”

Best moisturizer with SPF for oily skin

Paula’s Choice Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 Tinted Matte Moisturizer

“Easy to apply, with a sheer tint to it. I’ve been using this product for about two years already, and so far it has been my favorite facial sunscreen. I’ve tried a large number of sunscreen moisturizers in the past. Really dislike all of them. Either they were too greasy, or made my skin look like I applied a thin layer of white cream, which was pretty obvious. But this one is not oily at all and it absorbs really fast. I even apply regular moisturizer underneath from time to time during the winter, and my skin still doesn’t get greasy or shiny, though I have very oily, acne-prone skin.”

Best priming moisturizer with SPF

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Facial Moisturizer With Broad Spectrum SPF 30

“Best daily moisturizer I’ve ever used! This is my fifth bottle. After just a month of using this, I stopped breaking out and it’s been six years since! It controls oily skin and it has very little specks of shimmer (don’t worry, you can barely see it) that make your skin look flawless. There is a slight herbal scent, but you can’t smell it after a minute or so. It works great under makeup because it isn’t oily.”

Best tinted moisturizer with SPF

EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Facial Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 40

“This was recommended by my dermatologist after being on Accutane. I had very oily skin and now it is about normal. This does not make your skin oily whatsoever and the tint works on many skin tones and blends with your skin. I can still use my mineral powder over this and get the color I want. My skin looks even and toned while I wear this and I feel comfortable running out with this just on. My skin feels super soft afterwards for nearly the whole day. It also improves skin and blocks UV rays well.”

Best anti-aging moisturizer with SPF

Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer With Retinol SPF 20

“I put this on after I shower almost once every day, rarely skip a day. I have had to use it for quite a while, but it has done amazing things. The skin tone under my eyes has gained so much elasticity, I am blown away. I never expected such a good outcome, but I can say that this product has vastly improved the condition of my skin, especially under my eyes. I was considering some type of under-eyelid surgery or acid peel because I hated how many fine wrinkles I had there, but this product has smoothed those out and made me look so much younger than I did a year ago.”

RoC Multi Correxion 5 In 1 Anti-Aging Daily Face Moisturizer for Skin Discoloration SPF 30

“I bought this cream because of a review that said it really works well lightening brown spots. I bought it believing that a little. I have tried so many others. But, about a month later, I realized my brown spots have been reduced by 80 percent in color and intensity. I got the night cream and that has enhanced the effect. I love this cream. It’s very lightweight but hydrates perfectly.”

Best moisturizer with SPF 50+

Replenix Antioxidant Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 50

“I wish I had discovered this — and other Replenix products — much sooner. I learned about them through another dermatologist, Dr. Cynthia Bailey, online. This sunscreen triples as a moisturizer, tint, and sunscreen — and my skin looks improved after using it for a few weeks, due to the other antioxidants and good stuff in it. These products are superior for sensitive, aging skin, especially if you tend to break out. I find them pleasant, clean, and easy to use — and reasonably priced given the great quality.”
