5 Best Face Sunscreens for Summer

Last updated on: 2019


No shade here. Applying sunscreen on your face is necessary in order to prevent premature signs of aging and signs of skin cancer. We get it though it’s an extra step in your skincare routine that could potentially break you out and cause extra greasiness through the day. But, what if there were products that can give you all the protection without the infamous sunscreen symptoms? Here are five tinted face sunscreens for summer that cover up imperfections and protect you from the sun.

What are the best face sunscreens for summer?

1. SuperGoop Unseen Sunscreen ($32): The Unseen Sunscreen has taken over the sunscreen world. It deserves its top spot at number 1 not only for its catchy name, but also for its completely invisible, lightweight and make-gripping special powers. Plus, it’s an SPF 40 with a comfortable matte finish. If you want some coverage, they also have one with tint!

2. Clarins UV PLUS ($45): Besides the shade range (there’s three to choose from), this product is a hidden gem in the skincare market. Not only is it SPF 50, but the lightweight formula sinks into the skin for a flawless application and natural radiance. You don’t even need a separate brush cleaned fingertips work perfectly fine.

3. Tarteguard 30 Powder Sunscreen ($28): What could be easier than swiping a built-in powder brush directly to your face of SPF 45? Although mineral sunscreens aren’t uncommon, Tarte created this product for the girl on the go. Tarte claims you can swipe it over any finished makeup look, but it works best for those who want something easy to travel with (forget the liquids at home!)

Developed by dermatologists, this ulta-sensitive formula is a 100% physical sunscreen with a tinted base. It includes hyaluronic acid for a dewy, hydrated complexion and absolutely zero added chemicals.
