I don’t think I need to tell you why wearing sunscreen is the most important step in your skincare routine. But if you’re a little on the sack side when it comes to actually using it, maybe I can help. Many people (possibly you included) aren’t regular sunscreen users simply because they haven’t found one that feels good on the skin. Sunscreen doesn’t have to be greasy and gross. Just like all your other skincare, it should feel luxurious and be a pleasure to use. On that note, here are some of my favourite sunscreens that tick both of those boxes.
Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF 30+
For the face, Mattifying, Ideal for oily skin, Great for guys
This Mecca hero is so for a reason. A lightweight texture that leaves a matte finish on the skin and stays that way all day. It’s a chemical sunscreen, broad spectrum and contains hyaluronic acid and pomegranate. This non greasy formula might even get the skincare phobic men in your life to use sun protection.
Ultra Violette Supreme Screen SPF 50+
For the face, Hydrating, Anti-Aging
UV is a new sunscreen offering on the Australian market this year. Supreme Screen is an amazing option for those with dry skin or that like their skin to maintain a dewy glow. This is an skincare sunscreen hybrid containing Kakadu Plum which is high in vitamin c and Pentavitin which gives a boost of hydration.
Aspect Envirostat On The Go SPF 50
For the face, Travel friendly, Water resistant, Sensitive skin
Aspect Envirostat boasts a high, broad spectrum SPF with antioxidant protection. It’s has a powder touch finish and stays water resistant for four hours. It’s also free of fragrance and mineral oil, making it ideal for sensitive skin (note- not those allergic to sunscreen). Envirostat comes in a super travel friendly bottle and can even be taken in carry on luggage.
Ella Bache Great Bodysaver SPF 50+
For the body, High protection, Water resistant
Great Bodysaver is a non greasy formula that easily absorbs into the skin with no residue. It provides super high, broad spectrum protection and is water resistant. This feels lovely on the skin and can easily replace your regular body lotion when you need sun protection. (Note- I think this comes in different packaging now).
