1.  Neutrogena Age Shield & Ultimate Sport

Keep your face protected for up to 80 minutes with the quick absorbing Age Shield. For the rest of your body, look no further than Ultimate Sport with SPF 70. Both are resistant to sweat, water and wiping for nearly an hour and a half.

2.  Hawaiian Tropic

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.

4.  Coppertone Oil-Free Sunscreen

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
