The Best Sunscreens for Summer

The Best Sunscreens for Summer for Face and Body - I share the top 11 cruelty-free sunscreens that I swear by for protecting my skin from sun damage!

The Best Sunscreens for Summer

Hey friends, today I wanted to share the best sunscreens for summer for face and body! You know I love my sunscreens! I wear them daily, even on days that I’m not going to be outside. If I’m going to be out of my bed, I’m going to be wearing sunscreen. All of these sunscreens are cruelty-free, of course, and many are vegan.

11 Best Sunscreens

I use my SPF religiously on my face, décolleté, neck and hands daily. I try to always remember to put sunscreen on my arms too, even if I’m not going to be outside much. For me, days where I’m inside means that I’m only outside for a few minutes at a time to take the dogs out or get the mail. If I’m taking a walk or doing anything else, I slather the sunscreens all over my body. When I forget, I end up with a sunburn.

1. Supergoop Endless Summer Pump Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50
(body)

For years the Supergoop Endless Summer Pump Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50 was my go-to for body sunscreen. I love the pump dispenser because that makes application so easy.

2. Coola Sport Spray SPF 50
(body)

The Coola Sport Spray SPF 50 is nothing short of amazing for me! It has no white cast, it absorbs quickly, and it smells delicious! While I love my Guava Mango scent, I think I would also love the Piña Colada scent! And did I mention it’s reef friendly? So it’s not harmful to the ocean. It has so many reasons for being the best sunscreen ever for the body!

3. No-Ad Sport Stick SPF 50
(body)

The No-Ad Sport Stick SPF 50 is one of the best sunscreens because of how portable it is! It’s easy to toss into your beach bag or purse to take with you.

4. Emme Diane Illuminating SPF 58

I love the slight tint from the Emme Diane Illuminating SPF 58. It’s a mineral sunscreen which doesn’t trigger my rosacea or any skin issues. It doesn’t leave a white cast on the skin because of its slight champagne beige tint. To be fair, I normally don’t care if SPF has a white cast. The white cast usually helps to counter some of my redness from rosacea.

5. Kate Somerville Daily Defender SPF 50
(face)

The Kate Somerville Daily Deflector is hydrating for dry skin like mine and it’s SPF 50, so it’s strong sun protection. It’s one of the few chemical-based sunscreens that I can use on my face. After going through 4 tubes of it, you know I really love it!

6. MDSolarSciences Mineral Creme SPF 50
(face)

The MDSolarSciences Mineral Cream SPF 50 is such a good mineral sunscreen. It’s also gluten free, sulfate free, paraben free, fragrance free. It does have Vitamin C, so if you’re sensitive to that you may have an issue.

7. Beauty By Design SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen

I love the Beauty By Design SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen, I just wish it was SPF 50!

8. Coola Original Sport SPF 50 Face SPF

The Coola Original Sport SPF 50 is an excellent mineral SPF.

9. Coola SPF 30 Lip Balm

All of the Coola SPF 30 lip balms are so nice!

10. Paula’s Choice PC4Men SPF 30
(face)

Ray has loved the Paula’s Choice PC4Men SPF 30 since it launched. He’s used it for years and says it’s the best sunscreen for men

11. Coola 360 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30
(face)

The Coola 60 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 are innovative! It not only protects against broad spectrum UVA/UBV, IR (infrared), and HEV (high energy visible) Light. It’s vegan, paraben free, sulfate free, phthalates free, and more. It’s supposd to protect you from the blue-violet and invisible light emitted from electronic devices like tablets, computers and smart phones. It would be perfect if it was SPF 50.
