This summer's newest batch of sunscreens brings the biggest multi-taskers of them yet. Complexion-rejuvenating formulas, high-protection oils, vitamin-packed moisturizers—these aren't your gunky, streaky, or (the worst) smelly SPFs of yesteryear.
Still searching for your dream cream? Here's the scoop on five new kids on the (sun)block!
Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Lotion with SPF 30, $150
Equal parts daily lotion and sunscreen, Restorsea's lightweight formula protects against both UVA and UVB rays all the while aiding in skin restoration and rejuvenating, meaning your tan will look even more radiant. Plus, with such a gorgeous bottle, you'll want to keep this lotion out on display—you'll never forget to lather on the SPF each morning.
Kiss My Face Natural Mineral SPF 40, $16.99
True its name, Kiss My Face's new hydresia-infused sunscreen (hydresia's a moisturizing ingredient found in safflower) leaves your face and neck feeling silky-smooth—and all for under $20 a bottle!
Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen Stick SPF 30, $8.99
Not only is this shea- and cocoa butter-formulated sunscreen stick small enough to fit in your makeup bag (also TSA-approved!), it offers 40 minutes of water resistance and smells just as yummy as it sounds.
COOLA Body SPF 30 Unscented Moisturizer, $32
This gentle, fragrance-free classic was reformulated for summer 2013 with 70 percent certified organic ingredients, such as free-radical-fighting rose hip extract and Omega-3-rich linseed oils to help tone, hydrate, and reduce the redness in your skin.
L'Oreal Paris Sublime Sun Sheer Protect Sunscreen Oil Spray SPF 50+, $10.99
Get the easy, spray-on application of an oil without all the grease with L'Oreal's nourishing blend of argan, shea, grapeseed, and sunflower oils—it's the highest oil SPF protection on the market! An added bonus? For every Sublime Sun product bought this year, L'Oreal will donate $1 to the Melanoma Research Alliance to help fund melanoma research.
