Asap Moisturising Daily Defence SPF50+
There are many genetic and lifestyle factors that cause damage and premature ageing to the skin. But certainly one of the biggest causes of skin ageing is sun damage – especially here in Australia where the sun is so harsh. Yes, it even happens in winter.
Australia has one of the highest rates of sun damage and skin cancer in the world. It's not surprising given that 24% of teenagers and almost 14% of adults get sunburned on an average summer weekend*.
For us Aussies, skin protection is so important, and not just when you're down at the beach. Protecting your skin is a year-round commitment that we need to take seriously if we want to avoid wrinkles, sallowness, sagging and cancer.
And it's never too early to start. Even teenagers should be wearing a form of sun protection every single day.
One of the best and easiest ways to commit to sun protection is to use a moisturiser with a built-in SPF. We've sifted through the ones on the market right now and found the all kinds of amazing moisturisers for all different skin types.
Here are the best sun protecting moisturisers available now, and most of them are under $70.
Last year, I went to visit my local Dermalogica store for some general skincare advice, which is one of my favourite things about Dermalogica. You can have a chat with the staff about your current skincare routine without them trying to upsell you or make you switch. They provide you with great skincare advice and free samples.
This is where the therapists at Dermalogica are very sneaky. They give you free sample after free sample until one day you decide to give one of them a go, and... bam – you're hooked!
When I went in, I wanted some advice on how to care for my 25-year-old skin after noticing a frown line on my forehead. I normally steer clear of anti-ageing products because I've read that the ingredients can exhaust the skin's production of collagen when used at a younger age. But the Dermalogica girls explained it was not the case with this product and it could be used by all skin types apart from very sensitive skins or those with an oil-based acne problem.
So I gave it a go and I'm happy to report that I've now been using it exclusively for a year. It's hydrating without being too heavy and it doesn't clog my pores – something which most other moisturiser/sunscreen duos do.
I love that using it leaves my skin feels plumped and nourished all day. No effect on the frown line yet, but at least I haven't seen any others appear.
If you're after something to really protect your skin from the sun, this is the product I recommend.
Best places to buy? I buy mine from SkincareStore because it often has 25% off Dermalogica sales. Discount codes are listed at the bottom of the page. If there is currently a Dermalogica promotion happening, it will be at the top of the list.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
