Have you checked the expiration date on those sunscreens you’ve been wearing? Better take a look…sunscreens only last about three years or so. I am amazed at the incredible selection and variety of sunscreens we have at our disposal now. Remember back in the day when you had two choices – oil and lotion? Now I am excited when I run out of sunscreen or it expires because then I get to try something new!! Coppertone has some pretty cool options that need to go into your basket, pronto.

Coppertone Clearly Sheer Whipped Sunscreen

Coppertone Clearly Sheer Whipped Sunscreen

Coppertone Whipped Sunscreens ($14): Doesn’t that look like a palm full of fun? The Whipped Sunscreen is available in both the CLEARLYSheer and WaterBABIES lines. I can only imagine that little ones will be thrilled to put on sunscreen that looks this cool. The lotion sinks in super quick, smells fresh and clean, and is water-resistant. This is definitely a home run in the sun protection game.

Coppertone® Sport® Stick SPF 50

Coppertone® Sport® Stick SPF 50 ($7.99): This is a great way to take sun protection with you without any mess or fuss – just swipe it on and go. My son is an avid hiker and rock climber and he swears by the Coppertone® Sport® Stick SPF 50. It fits easily in a pocket or backpack and there is no worry of spillage. Just swipe it on hands, face, tops of feet, whatever needs protection and you are covered!

Coppertone Sport® Lip Balm SPF 50

Coppertone Sport® Lip Balm SPF 50

Coppertone Sport® Lip Balm SPF 50 ($3.99): It’s so easy to forget lips! They need sun protection too and Coppertone Sport® Lip Balm SPF 50 is a terrific option. I really love this – it’s super moisturizing with tons of aloe and Vitamin E, plus it gives lips broad spectrum protection. I have it in my purse at all times.

If you haven’t freshened up your SPF stash it’s a great time to do so, and Coppertone has lots of wonderful options. These are just three of my current favorites. What sunscreens are you loving lately?  – Lisa

Hawaiian Tropic’s Sheer Touch Radiance, Dry Oil and Silk Hydration offer up SPF 30 in a skin-nourishing formula. I love these since they hydrate and protect at the same time. Plus, the Silk Hydration leaves a sexy tropical scent behind.

Coppertone is a classic for a reason. Their oil-free sunscreen provides SPF 30 protection. The fragrance and oil-free formula are ideal for sensitive skin. Since it’s waterproof and long-lasting, it’s perfect for a day at the beach or pool.

5.  EltaMD UV Clear Sunscreen

EltaMD actually offers several great sunscreens. I love that it’s designed for all skin types and can even be worn under makeup. The calming formula helps soothe redness while providing protection up to SPF 46.

No matter what sunscreen you choose, ensure it has an SPF of 30 or more and protects against UVA and UVB rays. Non-greasy, oil-free formulas are always best to prevent clogged pores so skin looks great all summer long.  – Christina, The Makeup Blogger
