Protecting your skin against sun damage is essential, but sometimes sunscreen can make it so hard to want to use! We know it’s a MUST—but with goopy textures, messy lotions, and unflattering fragrances—it’s no wonder why you’d be tempted to skip this important step in your skincare routine. Here are five facial sunscreens worthy of wearing on your face!
The most portable and leak-proof on the list—this mineral powder sunscreen allows the skin to breathe. Available in three complexion-flattering shades, all you have to do is twist up the brush and dust it on.

We fell in love with the rose essence in this SPF 20—but appreciated its slightly tinted, lightweight, paraben-free formula even more. Loaded with anti-aging antioxidants, it absorbs quickly but still leaves the skin feeling hydrated.
Get sun and age protection at the same time with StriVectin—this very lightweight sunscreen was formulated for year-round use. It contains a proprietary ingredient (NIA-114™) that helps repair existing sun damage, while protecting the skin from both UVA and UVB rays. A must for those who have worshipped the sun in the past.
This oil-free sunscreen contains skin-protective antioxidants to ensure the good stuff goes in, and the bad stuff from the environment stays out! Super lightweight and water-resistant, this works great under makeup and provides a high level of protection.
If it’s good enough for a baby, it’s good enough for you! This waterproof, oil-free, and fragrance-free sunblock stick contains naturally-sourced active sunscreen ingredients, with natural oat to soothe even the most sensitive of skin. This is a “day at the beach” essential!
