8 Best Sunscreens to Stock Up on This Summer
The latest sunscreens are lightweight, eco-friendly and nothing like the greasy, pore-clogging formulas from your childhood. Here are 8 that we're stockpiling in our beach bags this summer.
COOLA Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30
Protecting against the sun's harmful rays doesn't get any easier than with this makeup setting spray from celeb-favorite brand COOLA. To use, simply spritz the hydrating mist over your face after applying your makeup. The 70 percent certified organic spray contains cucumber and aloe extract to calm the skin, hyaluronic acid to bind moisture and algae extract to combat free radical oxidation.
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 50
Whereas most sunscreens require reapplication after swimming or sweating, this new formula from Shiseido actually becomes more effective after exposure to water. Ideal for outdoor activities and sports, the innovative sunscreen has serious staying power—so much so that it requires a good deal of effort to remove it at the end of the day.

Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45
This oil-free, non-toxic formula protects from UVA and UVB rays and is regularly used by pro makeup artists in lieu of a makeup primer. Soothing botanicals including cherry blossom, lemon balm and white-tea extract provide anti-inflammatory benefits, while Carnosine softens, tones and firms wrinkles.
Colorescience Sunforgettable® Loose Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50
In the summer, you wear loose powder to keep the greasies at bay. So why not swap out your usual compact for a powder that does overtime as powerful sun-shielding veil? This self-dispensing powder sunscreen from Colorescience comes in a portable brush form that makes for easy touchups during the day. Use the tinted powder (which comes in 5 natural-looking colors) instead of a pore-clogging foundation or cakey cover-up.

AmorePacific Sun Protection Stick SPF 50+
This high-performance stick from cult Korean beauty brand AmorePacific delivers targeted sun protection to oft-neglected areas like eyes, lips, ears and nose. Unlike heavy zinc oxide counterparts, its undetectable, lightweight texture glides on smoothly without leaving behind a sticky residue.
Vita Liberata Self Tan Dry Oil SPF 50
Sun worshippers, this one’s for you. The world’s first non-toxic and organic tanner, this silky dry oil deposits a luxurious, instant-bronze finish while broad-spectrum SPF 50 guards against the aging effects of the sun. A clean tropical fragrance combining notes of pure neroli, grapefruit and lemongrass extract, is a far cry from most tanning oils' artificial coconut scent.

Philip Kingsley Swimcap Cream
Everyone knows that the sun is bad for our skin. But what about our hair? Turns out, there’s such a thing as premature hair aging, and side-effects can include thinning, color-damage and moisture-loss. To protect your summer strands, slather on the Philip Kingsley Citrus Sunshine Swimcap—an updated version of the popular hair cream original developed in 1984 for the US Olympic synchronized swimming team. Enhanced with UV protection, the nourishing cream acts as a defensive layer during swimming and sunbathing.
