Need ultra light moisturizer +spf

I am 57 but still have oily/combo skin. I need a good moisturizer with spf but I feel like my face is smothering. Also needs to be fragrance free. Any suggestions?

I like Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum. Very light, more like a lotion feel.

@HandbagHappy  Check out No 7 sold at Target or Walgreens.  They have a moisturizer called Beautiful Skin with SPF 15.  They have one for oily skin.  I have the normal skin moisturizer by No 7 and it is very very nice.

@HandbagHappy  Apparently, No 7 has discontinued the Beautiful Skin line.  Good thing I tried something different.  I recently purchased Lumene Day Cream moisturizer SPF 15 from Target.  A Finnish cosmetic/skin co.  Reasonable prices. Matte Hydration 24H Cream is recommended for oily skin.  Target carries it too.

@HandbagHappy  CeraVe AM moisturizing Lotion w spf 30 might work for you. Give a try. What are you using now that you feel your skin feels smothered?

I am using CeraVe Ultra-light Moisturizing Lotion with Sunscreen. SPF 30.

It is more 'watery' texture than AM lotion. I get it at CVS. New. I am on my second tube. In a white plastic container with a pump. No scent. White color but it blends in quickly.

Paula's Choice -- no animal testing, fragrance free, color free, 90 day guarantee.  I'd suggest purchasing one of their samples first.  I've been using her products since 1995.

@HandbagHappy  I recommend the Clinique Moisture Surge.  I have the regular one without SPF. But I do feel that if you are going to be out in the sun, it is better to apply SPF seperately.

I also have the Trader Joe's Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer.  Again, it has no SPF.  But both Clinique and Trader Joes are super light and fragrance free.   I have oily/combo skin, and those work for me.

@HandbagHappy  - Here's an spf that feels light on the skin.  Great for oily skin/combo skin.  It also comes in the 30 spf.
