We all know that a good SPF should be a staple in our daily skincare routine however, finding one that ticks all the boxes and meets your needs can sometimes be difficult. Oftentimes sunscreens can feel greasy on the skin, not sit right under makeup, or leave the dreaded white cast, but you don’t know this until it’s too late and you’ve already bought it. So, to take the guesswork out of picking a new SPF we’re sharing our faves with you and details on why we love them…
This has been a firm favourite in the office at the moment for several reasons, but mainly due to the beautiful glow it leaves behind. It sinks easily into the skin without leaving behind a thick greasy residue, which makes it a perfect base for your makeup. Couple that with the glow that shines through your makeup base it’s a must-have for the glowy skin look this season.
Formulated using a broad range of photostable UV filters, including the world’s most advanced filter – Tinosorb A2B – this sunscreen offers great daily protection for under £5.00. It’s quickly absorbed into the skin so you don’t have to wait around too long to apply your makeup.
The broad-spectrum formula Helps defend against UVA, UVB and blue light. Not only does this sunscreen offer great protection, it also helps to soothe the skin whilst protecting it as the addition of a Bio-active Mushroom Complex soothes and reduces UV-induced redness and dryness.
This is the best-selling sunscreen from Sun Bum, and we can see why. It is easily and quickly absorbed into the skin leaving behind a matte finish which is great for those with oily or combination skin types.
Another sunscreen that is great for oily skin types! It can be hard to find a hardworking sunscreen that doesn’t add to your already oily/greasy feeling skin, so being able to have options via the Avène Cleanance range is a winner. Formulated with Triasorb™ Complex, this organic sun filter combines 3 other sun filters (Tinosorb S – UVA/UVB, Uvinul A+ – UVA and Uvinul T150 – UVB) to create a new ultra-efficient filter that is 100% photostable, so you can be sure you’re getting some of the best protection on the market.
