Our favorite SPF products

SPF-Beauty-Image.jpgThere are so many products out there formulated with SPF. But how do you find the ones that are absolutely perfect for you? Well, luckily, we’ve culled through the hundreds of SPF products and found the ones that really and truly work. Here are our favorites.

Best drugstore sunscreen
Hands down, our choice for drugstore sunscreen is Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 70. (Yes, you read that number right!) If you want your face to look as young 40 years from now as it does today, this is the sunscreen for you.

Best sunscreen wipes
You’re running around the city and you don’t have room in your purse for sunscreen. Well, good news–Tocca Stella SPF 30+ Sunscreen Towelettes not only smell amazing, but they fit into even the tiniest clutch! No reason you can’t protect that pretty skin of yours.

Best moisturizer with sunscreen
You’ll hear it from pretty much every makeup artist out there. Skip the sunscreen if–and only if!–you’re wearing Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20. Plus, you get just the tiniest, healthiest hint of color.

Best sunscreen-infused lip balm
Okay, confession time. It was completely impossible to pick just one in this category, so we picked two! It’s a tossup between Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($22.50 at sephora.com) and Benefit Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15 ($20 at benefitcosmetics.com). Each imparts a pretty, just-kissed amount of color upon the lips–totally gorgeous.

Best allover sunscreen stick
From your elbows to your ears, the tops of your feet to the tip of your nose, there’s one product out there that’s great for every place imaginable. And that’s Clinique Sun SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick. We tested this stick in Hawaii, and even in the hottest sun imaginable, we remained unburned!

Best dermatologist-created sun product
Everything Dr. Dennis Gross touches turns to gold … and his All-in-One Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 15 is no exception. Antioxidants, a hint of tint and, of course, sunscreen, combine to create one pretty powerful product.

Best self tanner
Okay, this product is pure genius. Clarins Delectable Self Tanning Mousse SPF 15 not only makes your legs glow with what looks like a real tan, but it actually contains SPF so your skin is totally pretty and protected.
