The sun is shining and summer is here! It’s time to find your new favourite sunscreen, the one you’ll love so much, you’ll actually use. We all want to soak up the sun without the skin damage that comes along with it. Make the most out of your summer and up your UV arsenal with these five fabulous sun care essentials.
Eucerin Sun Face Fluid Anti-Age SPF 50
Hands down, this is one of the best products on the market. It’s everything you could ever want from a sunscreen: light and sheer formula, protection, and is invisible under makeup. But this baby goes above and beyond, repairing sun damage you already have. Eucerin is one of the most popular pharmacy brands for good reason. Honest skin science has been the root of their philosophy since the brand’s origins, which date back to 1882—yeah they are doing something right. Their Sun Face Fluid is a must have for everyone, even those with skin issues. It takes a lot to get us this excited about a sunscreen- well done!
Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF
This is not your typical sunscreen, expect to be wowed. While it costs a pretty penny, Tatcha’s silky smooth hybrid is equal parts sunscreen, pore perfector and skin primer. While other brands boast lightweight formulas, Tatcha delivers. It wears more like a serum and absorbs instantly into the skin. The breathable texture is ideal if you’re planning to layer on makeup and it’s light enough that it won’t feel heavy or look greasy. Silk, green tea and rice extracts are just a few of the nourishing Japanese ingredients. After all, the brand is inspired by beauty rituals of the Geishas’. We love that it is available in both full and travel sizes-extra room for more swimsuits is never a bad idea.
Shiseido Sun Protection Lotion WetForce for Sensitive Skin & Children SPF 50+
Shiseido’s newest sun care lotion is kind of a big deal. It’s water resistant, broad spectrum, and gentle enough for babies. Packing for a beach getaway with the whole family? There is only one sunscreen you need. Formulated without parabens or chemical sunscreen agents the WetForce technology is our most efficient formula in the bunch. It stays on all day so no need to reapply. The only downside is it takes a thorough washing to come off.
Chanel, UV Essentials SPF 50
Chanel knows how to stand out in the crowd. This classic protects against both UV rays and air pollution. Available in SPF twenty, thirty and fifty you can choose how much protection is right for you. Shake the bottle before using and unleash the sweet aroma of wild roses. The scent lingers so if you’re sensitive to fragrances it is not for you. Everything from the sleek white packaging to the shine free formula has been meticulously thought through. As the tiny bottle denotes, it is only intended for the visage and décolleté making it a daily face essential.
Vichy Idéal Soleil Bronze SPF 30
If you’re chasing the perfect natural tan, try a sunscreen with a tan enhancer. Get the most out of your time by the pool with sun care that focuses on moisture. The cool gel formula nourishes the skin while protecting it from damaging UV rays.
