|Looking for new moisturizer

Alternative Skin Care
Oil of Olay (sensitive skin + spf 15) is the facial moisturizer I've been using for a few years now, and while it's been the most satisfying thing I've tried on my face so far, it's still pretty disappointing. I've also recently reviewed the ingredients and realized there are some things in there that I had thought there werent (maybe they were added?) and that I usually try to avoid in cosmetics. The Trader Joe's version seems to have the same problems, although it also has fragrance and it's irritating my skin right now.|
What can I use for an everyday moisturizer on my face that isn't full of iffy things? (I don't just mean ~~"chemicals"~~, but needless preservatives, carcinogens, fragrances, and BS useless extract of whatever-this-year's-hot-superberry-is) Keep it simple.
Something like Egyptian Magic sounds really appealing to me, with its short, practical and recognizable ingredient list, (Olive oil, beeswax, bee pollen, propolis, royal jelly, honey) but it also seems overly expensive, and I'd rather not take a $30 risk in that case that it doesn't work out.
I have sensitive skin that's prone to redness, mild adult acne, and I would prefer something with UV protection. (Would something like this, without fragrance, work perhaps?) Are there any small businesses that make simple moisturizers that fit the bill?
Please don't say "Oil Cleansing Method". Been there, done that, not going back.
