    I'm looking for something with just a bit of SPF to wear daily that doesn't have a sunscreen smell. So far everything I've seen has a scent I can't stand to smell all day.

    I use Zirh, seems to work well and does not have a strong odor. I haven't tried very many brands, this was a gift from my gf, so I can't say that it's better than another, but it doesn't make my face oily-which is a concern for me.

    I use Jack Black Double Duty. Can be found at Sephora or major department stores. I like it because it does not smell like sunscreen but more important because it does not feel like sunscreen. It is light and absorbs quickly.

    Cetaphil is not only about the best you can get, it is also pretty cheap at about $11. It has no greasy feel at all and works great.

    I use Burt's Bees Radiance Day Lotion with a 15 SPF. Works well for me.

    Zirh gets my vote too - you can pick up "defend" on ebay for peanuts

    I've tried Shiseido, Zirh, Neutrogena, Ponds, Oil of Olay, St. Ives and Aveno.

    Currently using Aveno. Didn't feel any significant improvement in the expensive stuff.

    What's the major difference between Zirh Protect and Zirh Defend? Which one would you recommend to get?

    I like Super Shape by Baxter of California. A little goes a long way, and it leaves my face feeling smooth and never greasy. Cetaphil is a close second.

    Kiehls Facial Fuel w/SPF 15 (careful, there is a very similar looking tube that DOESN'T say SPF15 on it. Make sure you are buying the right one)

    Awesome stuff. You use such a small amount that one tube (not the small size.. the ginormous one) lasts me pretty close to a full year.

    Smells like facial lotion, and not at all like sunblock. I hate the sunblock smell too.
