Love it or hate it, sunscreen is necessary for human life under a burning star. But with so many options (and so many bad ones too) how do you choose one that you'll actually like to wear?
We have literally searched the world for best-in-class sunscreens to help ease your burden of finding great suncare at a reasonable price. And luckily we found a lot of great options. But if our selection still overwhelms you, here's out handy guide for how to pick a great sunscreen for every puprose. Let's get into it!
Best Sunscreen For Your Face
Sunscreen is always the last step in your morning skincare routine. Make sure you have a sunscreen that feels great, and at least SPF 30.
Everyday Humans Resting Beach Face: This stuff has been a best-seller since we started carrying it, for obvious reasons: The formula is amazing and the price is right. It's so lightweight you won't even notice you're wearing it. It absorbs quickly and the finish is invisible on all skin tones.
Dr. Loretta Universal Glow Daily Defense Mineral Sunscreen: Dr. Loretta's latest product launch is a mineral option that had us completely shook. We almost didn't believe this to be a mineral sunscreen. Lightweight, moisturizing and tinted just ever so slightly to eliminate any trace of white cast. If you want to splurge on a sunscreen, this is the one to blow your budget on. You won't regret it.
Best Sunscreen For Reapplying
It's 2023 and we're all re-applying sunscreen, even over makeup—no excuses.
Vacation Super Spritz SPF 50 sprays makes reapplication a no brainer. Now get out of the home office and over to that outdoor bar for happy hour.
Best Sunscreen To Wear Under Makeup
If you're like me and wear a makeup base everyday, consider upgrading to Dr. Loretta's Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen. This mineral and chemical sunscreen hybrid offers a subtle shimmer that adds a light infused under paint for makeup. It's matte finish preps your skin for makeup layers and antioxidants work to help your skin rid itself of free radicals while you look amazing all day long!
Best Sunscreen For Traveling
Pack light for your next vacation with sunscreens that are TSA carry-on approved at 3.4oz or 100 mL.
These full-sized sunscreens are perfect for a weekend getaway.
Best Nostalgic Sunscreen Scent
If you're looking for a sunscreen that will transport you back to a more relaxing time, you're going to want anything from Vacation. The classic spray or lotion will have you reminiscing about all your favorite days from childhood and beyond!
Best Sunscreen For Kids
If you're a parent, you know putting sunscreen on your kids is a contact sport. They'll do everything they can to get away from you as soon as possible. For this reason, we recommend Kinfield Cloud Cover: it rubs in extra fast--allowing you to spend less time chasing your kid and more time having fun. Also great for all sensitive skin types or anyone that prefers a mineral sunscreen.
Best Mineral Sunscreen For Deep Skin Tones
If you're looking for a mineral sunscreen that won't leave your skin looking gray or ashy, Everyday Humans Rose From Above SPF 35 is the one. Formulated in collaboration with a panel of POC, the universal color cancels out the blue hue of the zinc and titanium dioxide. And the formula includes ingredients like ceramides and plant squalane, that support skin barrier health, improving your skin while protecting it too.
Best Glow-Enhancing Sunscreen
If you're looking for a glow-enhancing sunscreen with a subtle bronze shimmer, choose Kinfield Sunglow. You'll looked bronzed and glowing without any of the sun damage.
Everyday Humans Sunglazed SPF 30 Body Glow Oil is another great option if you want to add some shimmer to your complexion. This will give you that oiled body glow without having to worry about frying like a chicken in the sun.
Easiest SPF Application
We love an SPF spray because they are easy and convenient to apply.
The SPF sprays we carry use a bag-on-valve technology which means this non-aerosol sunscreen isn't compromised with chemical propellants like other brands--you can't go wrong with Bask or The Vacation Classic Spray.
There you have it, our top picks for the best sunscreen. We hope that this guide has helped you find the right product for your needs. Remember, no matter what type of sunscreen you choose, if you don't use it, it won't work. Stay safe out there friends.
