I know, I didn’t know this is an actual thing, but apparently it is! I fee like in the last few years there have been ‘national’ days for pretty much everything! haha! but I kinda find them fun and this gives me an opportunity to share all of my favorite sunscreens, for body and for your face!

if you don’t already know, you should be wearing SPF on your face every single day, even if you’re not directly out in the sun. it’s good for your skin, not only does it help prevent skin cancer, but also helps prevent skin discoloration and pigmentation and wrinkles! SPF all day everyday is a great idea ALWAYS! now that summer season is here and we will be spending a lot more time outside… annnnd its NATIONAL SUNSCREEN DAY, I thought I should share all of my favorite sunscreens and why I like them! so here we go!

I remember growing up I used to hate putting on sunscreen before heading to the pool or the beach because they were always so thick, greasy and sticky and just made my skin feel gross! these days there are so many different sunscreens and I have tried so many but these three for my body have been amazing!


first up, this spray sunscreen by SUN BUM – I have been using this spray sunscreen for years, probably one of my first favorite spray sunscreens. It is super easy to use, sheer/sry to touch continuous spray formula that protects from UVA/UVB rays. Also has Vitamin E to enrich your skin. SUN BUM is also hypoallergenic and reef friendly. It has a very light scent and seriously so easy to apply and I love that it doesn’t feel like anything on the skin!

next up, this sunscreen lotion by COOLA! Coola is one of my top favorite brands for sunscreen, I have loved all their sun care products that I have tried for both face and body. this one for my body is so good, its great for every day normal use. it is not thick, sticky or greasy but lightweight and gentle enough for everyday use. it has a delicious scent and SPF 50. this sunscreen is made with 70% certified organic ingredients and is rich in antioxidants that help fight free radicals and help hydrate and nourish the skin! also, this product is gluten free, paraben free and reef friendly! I highly recommend this one especially for everyday use!

last one for body, is this new one (to me) by Snappy Sunscreen. this Sun Styles sunscreen with SPF 30 is super lightweight, sprays on like a very fine mist, which I love. it is not greasy or oily and dries quickly on the skin. I love that it doesn’t transfer to clothing and it is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. This sunscreen is also eco-friendly and reef-safe, and also safe for children which is so nice because I hate having to bring three different sunscreens with me when I go to the pool or beach!

ok next up are my top 5 favorite sunscreens for my face! this is a lot so i’ll try to keep my review a little more concise. I basically love all of these because of how they feel on the skin and how well they look under my makeup. just like for my body, I especially don’t like my face SPF to be thick of greasy or clog my pores. these ones are all great options, I also tend to have sensitive skin and haven’t had any issues with any of these. I also have acne-prone skin and again no issues. I use all of these interchangeably depending on how I feel or what i’m doing for the day.

starting with this one, I started using this Jan Marini SKin Research antioxidant daily face protectant last year when their company sent it to me, and I have loved using it since then. It is a water-resistant broad spectrum SPF 33 that is invisible, hydrating and weightless. it feels so good on my skin and also has a pretty scent. it absorbs into the skin quickly so great for everyday use and also under makeup!

second up, this protect + glow from Tula Skincare – if you follow me on instagram, you already know I am huge Tula Skincare fan! not all their products but I love a lot of them including their newest product – their sunscreen! I have been waiting years for them to come out with a sunscreen and this one does not disappoint! does exactly what it says, protects your skin from sun rays with SPF 30 + protection form damaging pollution and blue light – so amazing for everyday use, and leaves a gorgeous glow – so I love to wear this alone or under my makeup! it does not clog my pores and I love the gel consistency – not greasy, smells so good and also reef-safe! ps I have a discount code – STEPHANI – gets you 15% off your purchase!

I just got this Mineral Sunscreen with Zinc Oxide from First Aid Beauty about a month ago and have used it a handful of times and I LOVE it. It is similar to the Tula sunscreen except it is a normal lightweight cream – non-greasy and invisible, also absorbs very quickly and looks great on its own or under makeup! like a sheer tint works well on all skin tones and it’s oil-free & doesn’t clog pores!! this is a major YES!

this sunscreen I’ve been using for about a year – and its so good! this Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen has a gel-like consistent and once it touches you skin it kinda melts and absorbs almost immediately, which I love! it is invisible, weightless, scentless and also acts like a primer – grips makeup really well and has SPF 40! works for all skin types and great under makeup, not only does it protect from the sun rays also protects against blue rays and is soothing. it is vegan, cruelty-free and reef safe! it is also considered a clean beauty product as Sephora, which is a plus!

this is a newer sunscreen for me, I bought during the Sephora sale and I am loving it so far. this Biossance Mineral Sunscreen is super sheer with non-nano zinc SPF 30 sunscreen that protects & hydrates even sensitive skin! it is lightweight and works great alone and under makeup. this sunscreen is very moisturizing, blends in so quickly, calms and cools skin and leaves a soft, dewy finish! i mean, what’s not to love! also a clean product at Sephora! definitely a great product!
