I enjoy a good spray sunscreen for summer, but this year I've been trying out new things! There are so many great sunscreens on the market and today I thought I would share the 3 sunscreens that I've been using lately.
La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Melt-In Sunscreen Milk
My husband and I picked this up on impulse last year, after he returned from a European adventure and loved a La Roche Posay sunscreen he found in a French pharmacy. (I know right? He went to a French pharmacy and bought sunscreen!!)
Out of the three sunscreens I have here, this one is for sure my husband's favorite. It absorbs quickly and is super easy to apply, plus it is water resistant for 80 minutes. I also love that it is scent-free, and it contains antioxidants as well. Anyways, once I put this on I don't think about it again!
Sunscreen Content: Avobenzone 3% • Homosalate 10.72% • Octisalate 3.21% • Octocrylene 6% • Oxybenzone 3.86%
Jurlique Sun Specialist SPF 40*
I don't know why I always forget about Jurlique (perhaps because you don't see them in physical stores much anymore?) but this sunscreen was so interesting that I couldn't pass up the chance to try it. Containing ingredients like shea butter, green tea and cucumber, this SPF is meant to be anti-aging and provide hydration and I have to say it definitely is hydrating!
This one also has a fun herbal scent that reminds me of something that I just can't figure out. It is a fresh scent, and I think it is a nice addition to this sunscreen. Compared to the La Roche Posay SPF, this takes a bit more work to absorb, but it is still quite easy to apply. If you like to swim, I find that this one feels slippery when wet, and it is not meant to last through water exposure.
SUNSCREEN CONTENT: Avobenzone 3.0% • Octinoxate 7.5 %• Octocrylene 2.75%
Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Defense
I couldn't help but add this one to my shopping cart after hearing so many raves about it last year, and this anti-oxidant filled sunscreen deserves the hype. Formulated without chemical sunscreens, this one ranks highly in my book because it still absorbs reasonably well despite the high zinc oxide content.
Intended to minimize the look of pores and fine lines, I think this is a great formula to try if you don't get along with chemical sunscreen formulas. It does leave a slight white cast on skin if you don't get all of it absorbed, but as long as you take care to apply the right amount a section of your body at a time, I do not think that is a problem. Many of the reviews on Sephora.com indicate that this has been fantastic for the face, but I have not yet tried it that way.
SUNSCREEN CONTENT: Zinc Oxide 20%
I've been enjoying all three of these sunscreens for summer, at least for the body. I've been so in love with my Tatcha Pore Perfecting Suncreen for face on a daily basis that I haven't even attempted to try these that way! What are your favorite SPFs for summer? I would love to know!
