Not bad but more SPF: Hello, olay total effects day time spf 15 is better than not using any sun screen but spf 15 is a little weak protection. If possible, consider adding more sunscreen after using olay moisturizer more than spg 30 or higher. Tretinoin can make your skin a little more photosensitive, so high spf sunscreen is recommended. Good luck !
