It’s really truly the season that you can’t go without sun protection. We talk about it all year but many of us are bundled up with our fall and winter clothes so only our faces seem to need protection. But now that it’s summer I won’t let you get away with that. You need to protect yourself everywhere and that’s what this week’s Makeup Wars is all about. You’ll learn from me and the others what our favorites are. I’m thrilled with my trio of sunscreens and hope these become choices of yours too.  —  Marcia

Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50|PA++++ Mineral Sunscreen

Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50|PA++++ Mineral Sunscreen

Starting with my face since I never go without sunscreen protection on my face! I’m currently using Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50|PA++++ Mineral Sunscreen and truly enjoying it. I started using this Murad SPF the day I received it and haven’t stopped at all. This lightweight, fragrance free sunscreen has a pearlescent look to it that leaves my skin looking dewy.

I’ve used it with half a dozen foundations and it always plays nicely. No balling up which can be a problem with other sunscreens I’ve used. This has a slightly peachy tone to it that brightens skin if you don’t want to apply foundation over it.

Prior to this I was using Supergoop but I always winced a little with the texture and smell. Not happening with Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50|PA++++ Mineral Sunscreen. It’s perfect for my skin and I’m so happy to have discovered it.

NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention Broad Spectrum SPF30 100% Mineral Sunscreen may have a very long name but that’s okay once you learn all the benefits of this one.

While I’ve used this NIA24 Sunscreen on my face I don’t use it on the days I’m applying foundation. It’s a thick white cream that I need to blend especially well so that it doesn’t appear white on my face. This one is perfect for my grandkid playdates when I’m out and about with them. Even though the SPF is 30 compared to Murad’s 50, it just feels like it’s protecting me especially well.

What makes the NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention Broad Spectrum SPF30 100% Mineral Sunscreen unique is the 5% Niacin it contains. Other key ingredients are 7.5% Homosalate, 5% Octisalate, 3% Avobenzone, 2.6% Octocrylene, Mango Butter, Ceramides, and Antioxidants.

I love this on my arms too since they finally have become uncovered and need extra protection. I’ve developed some sunspots and feel this is really helping protect me from gaining more.

HINT SUNSCREEN SPRAY is a new product created by the people who make Hint Water. It’s so innovative and smells so delicious!

Hint Sunscreen Spray comes in 3 fragrances and are a delight to use. I was sent this in Pineapple and Grapefruit and as soon as these are finished I’ll be ordering the Pear. That’s how great these are. While it can be used on your face by spraying it into your hands and applying it that way, I like it on my body. And then I like to smell my arms all day long.

With broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection and easy 360° spray-on application, our hydrating, skin-quenching sunscreen is water resistant for 80 minutes. Employing Bag-on-Valve (BOV) technology, our innovative spray uses only compressed air, eliminating propellant chemicals, providing uniform coverage, and offering extra-fast drying time. Plus, it’s oxybenzone- and paraben-free—a delicious, radiant glow, delivered with only the good stuff.

These are made with the essence of the fragrances. You’ll forget about that “sunscreen smell” that we often complain about. Even your kids won’t complain about the smell of Hint. The fragrance isn’t strong and it’s very true to life plus the spray isn’t sticky in the least. In my experience they haven’t attracted bugs but they do attract people.

I’m so happy to have the chance to share these with you but even more to be using them myself. All are living up to my expectations and I’m sure yours too.

  1. What great picks, Marcia! I think that I have the NIA 24 sunscreen somewhere, and I have the Hint Sunscreens (which are GREAT). I definitely want to try the Murad sunscreen now!

  2. 3 great alternatives. In the future, I’ll check out the Murad because it sounds like the kind of sunscreen I like for my face. From your description and from the look of the packaging, I’ve got Hint pineapple sunscreen on my to buy list. It looks and sounds yummy!

  3. I am intrigued to try Murad esp since it’s a physical sunscren. I have qualms about using the spray beause it’s hard to determine if you have applied enough.
