Another product I use literally every day
One of my favorite skin care products to try is sunscreen. This one is lightweight and slightly moisturizing. In the winter it's not moisturizing enough to use by itself, but in the summer it's perfect, esp if I use a moisturizing serum beforehand.
When I first started using it I thought it helped my skin produce less oil, but after using it for a while I don't notice that effect anymore. I do think this is a good base for makeup, it has no white cast but it doesn't help with my huge pores, so a primer helps a lot.
I love this SPF the most because I can just put it on in one step, instead of a moisturizer then SPF.

The only thing I'm iffy about is I can't tell if the sun protection is really effective. My face rarely gets sunburnt, but over the last year I noticed I've gotten a lot of freckles on the tops of my cheeks. Maybe it's genetics or it comes with aging, maybe I don't reapply enough throughout the day. 
I have other sunscreens to try out after I finish this one, but if I don't find anything better, I can see this being a staple in my skincare 

$33 for 2 oz
