Calm Non-Greasy Dagcrème SPF 30 by Paula’s Choice (they’ve changed the packaging since I purchased this)
Well. I mean I like it, and it makes my skin feel pretty nice and smooth, but it’s shininess galore, no matter the weather. Unlikely that I’ll repurchase this considering the other alternatives from PC.
€ 34,00 for 60 ml
The Righteous Butter by Soap & Glory
Love the smell, since I’m a sucker for sweet smelling things. However. Difficult to get if you’re in NL (unless you’re willing to pay 3 times as much to order it from Boots’ NL shop). Also, my skin wasn’t crazy about this. It seems to really dry me out, and I have to apply lotion afterwards for it not to itch like crazy (and I’m lazy, don’t want to do that). Won’t be buying this again.
£7.00 for 300 ml
Resist Anti-Aging Ultra-Light Antioxidant Serum by Paula’s Choice
So, it may be just me, but between this one, and the last one in this list (at a fraction of the price), I prefer the cheap Swedish-pharmacy brand. They did about the same thing, so there’s nothing that justifies the price here. Sorry PC.

Resist Anti-Aging Dagcrème SPF 50 by Paula’s Choice
This one also made my face shiny just like the first one in this list, but I prefer this one. It’s “fluid” (as stated on the packaging), and it applies so much easier than the lotion ones. Plus it’s SPF 50, which is great for summer here where the sun is stronger than I’m “used to”. Will repurchase, despite the shininess.

Fuktserum by Kronans Apotek (they’ve changed the packaging since I purchased this)
Yay! I bought this one years back as a test, but just started using it last year for real. It completely stands up to the more expensive products I’ve tried, and I have already repurchased this now that I was in Sweden on vacation. Love it.
99 SEK for 50 ml (roughly € 10)
