Sunscreen before primer and moisturizer or after?

Started 1268919311.953 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1268939894.59 by free-spirit

I am confused...Gee, that's a shock!!!! Laughing   I use Bobbi Brown stick or sometimes just concealer.  Neither have sunscreen..Should I be applying the sunscreen on bare skin before moisturizers and primer or after the moisturizers and primer?  I don't want to be wasting my time and not getting the protection of the sunscreen..


Thanks ladies... (and gents)

moisturizer, sunscreen then primer.  Primer seals everything.

You can also use a moisturizer that contains suncreen like Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 45.  Primer goes on after all your skin treatments including moisturizer and sunscreen. HTH

Sunscreen is always first, then moisturizer, then primer (if needed)  In the warmer summer months you may want to try a makeup that offers a base and primer in one.  Less on your face is best.  Try Magix by Avon if you are interested in that concept.  Superb coverage, light on the face, leaves a dewy matte finish.

Sunscreen I love is Neutrogena Dry Touch with spf of 45.  Doesn't interfere with my makeup and really works.  Then I use Reversalist Day Cream with spf 25 because its light and does the job.  Then Magix and I'm good for the day.

 That is what  I do.  Dr. D. Hydroshield, her daycream (w/sunscreen) then primer.

 This is how I do it if I need a moisturizer, only a few times in the winter

my moisturizer is SPF 50, and sometimes i need more in the winter, but if i used all 3 it would be as LadyRoxanne posted here Kiss

thank you ladies...I guess i am going to try the moisturizer then sunscreen and then primer..It needed...It makes me nervous to put the moisturizer on first and then the sunscreen as I (wrongly?) think the moisturizer will "block" the sunscreen from getting onto my facial skin and protecting it?  


I am far from knowledgeable in these matters so I am going to take the suggestion of all of you ladies...


Thank you all...Don't know what I'd do without this BB Smile

This question comes up every year.

I would tell you to search the archives ... but not sure you can.

I believe it depends if the suncreen is physical or chemical.  I book marked this link from an old QVC thread ...
