The Top 10 Sunscreens for Face.

Yay for the summer and spending lots of time outside. I could go on and on about the importance of sunscreen, but I am sure you all know by now that you need to wear sunscreen everyday and that you need to reapply it often. Did you know that you should be using a different sunscreen on your face than you use on your body? The sunscreens that are formulated for your body are often more harsh and could clog pores. Your face needs a more skincare-like version of sunscreen, with a higher SPF too.

The best sunscreens for your face.

I have tested my share of sunscreens for face and I am quite picky about them. I need the sunscreen to last all day and to wear well under makeup. It needs to sink into skin fast and not leave a heavy or greasy after-feel. I don't like a heavy scented sunscreen on my face.

Here are my top 10 favorite sunscreens for my face.

1. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunscreen SPF 70

2. SkinCeuticals Physical UV Defense SPF 50

3. L'Oréal Silky Sheer BB Face Lotion SPF 50+

4. blisslabs active 99.0 UV Protect SPF 30

5. AVEENO Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face

6. h2O+ UV Defense Fluid SPF 50 PA+++

7. Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50

8. Clinique Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream

9. Clarins Sunscreen for Face Wrinkle Control Cream SPF 50+

10. Supergoop! Skin Soothing Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

Tip: Your facial sunscreen is the last thing you should apply in your morning skincare routine right before your makeup. Let it sink into your skin for about five minutes before applying your primer or foundation.

So important and I need one. Going to look for Neutrogena!
I like Aveeno a lot but I was eyeing that L'Oreal one also. Does it leave a tint?
Great suggestion Teri. I need some for this weekend. It is always smart to wear stronger SPF on the face for sure.
Great tip about waiting to 5 mins before putting the foundation on.
Hi there!

I really like this post, I think it is very important to take care against the sun effects. Those creams look really good, and I agree with you abput the importance of the sun protection and about those creams.
But the other day I was looking on internet and I found this web site where they have plenty of sunscreens and they have very good offers. I leave here just if you want to have a look.
Thanks for sharing the post with us, top 10 sunscreens for face. There is no doubt that these are one of the best sunscreen but I think you missed there Kaya’s sunscreen, it’s also good for skin care against sun protection.
