I am forever always an avid fan and user of Japanese sunscreens! Sometimes it feels like nothing can replace my beloved Allie and Biore but I admit I do cheat from time to time. For example, I tend to use SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 when I’m outside for longer periods of time. It’s a liquid formula that absorbs easily and provides excellent protection against the sun’s harmful rays!
I thought I’d compile a list of some sunscreens to haul during the Sephora Spring Savings Event that starts on Friday for Rouge Members!
Paula’s Choice RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 $26 After Discount
DO buy this if you like liquid formulas that absorb easily. This was created for normal and combo skin but I use and love it. It absorbs fast, doesn’t leave a white cast, and wears well under makeup!
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Cream SPF 50+ Face Sunscreen $32 After Discount
One of my ride or die’s! I’ve used this for years and it’s never failed me. It’s pretty thick but it absorbs easily and wears very well under makeup! It’s also water friendly so I tend to reach for it often in the Summer or pack it when I’m traveling!
Farmacy Green Defense Daily Mineral Sunscreen $29 After Discount
It’s no secret I’m a lover of Farmacy. Their skincare just works well for me including this sunscreen. This doesn’t have a super high level of protection but it’s a nice daily sunscreen and particularly a good pick if you’re allergic to physical sunscreens. It does leave a white cast but after it fully absorbs that disappears!
Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream $20 After Discount
Clinique’s sunscreens typically have a very solid formula. This one is one I’ve used for quite a long time now. It is thick so be prepared but creamy and does absorb within several seconds. It leaves skin nicely hydrated!
Josie Argan Argan Daily Moisturizer Tinted SPF 47 Protect + Perfect $29 After Discount
Another ride or die for me! I’ve been using this forever and a day. The color is perfect for me and provides a nice bit tint that brightens my complexion out and leaves my skin looking fresh. It’s one of my favorite tinted moisturizers and has the added benefit of sun protection too! (Note: The photo below is old and says SPF 40! The formula was revised a few years ago for higher protection of 47!)
Tarte SEA Set & Protect Mineral Sunscreen Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 30 $22 After Discount
Reapplying SPF is a hassle. I RARELY reapply a cream or liquid SPF if I’m not on vacation. It’s simply too difficult to apply a cream foundation when you wear makeup! That’s why little mineral sunscreen powers like this one from Tarte are awesome. Just pressed the button and an transparent protective sunscreen powder can be dusted on your face to provide protection on the go! This isn’t something I’d used as my main sun protection but it is an essential in my makeup bag for when my sunscreen has worn off and I need to touch up without making a mess!
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 45 $42 After Discount
For the drier skin girls and guy this broad-spectrum SPF 45 sunscreen hydrates as it protects!
Innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36 $12 After Discount
Not one of Innisfree’s highest level of protections but definately a solid offering! Creamy yet liquid-y this SPF absorbs in a snap and wears like a dream under makeup!
