Need a case that will protect my screen from drops (raised edge?)

I was using one of the $.99 eBay cases and dropped my phone a couple of weeks ago face down and of course the screen shattered. I just got it repaired and don't want this to happen again. Are there any cases that people can recommend that would protect the screen if I were to drop it facedown again?

Something with a raised lip?

I honestly don't know how anybody can stand using the zagg, feels like you're running your finger across rubber to me. I have a spigen glaS TR, works great with the slim armor case. The others that would maybe work for you would be the trident aegis and the seidio active.

I swear by my Diztronic TPU cases, been using them since I shattered my One S screen.
One of the main reasons is the amount of edge lip around the screen to protect it.
