5 Pocket-Sized Sunscreens We Love

July 28, 2020

While it may not be the summer we’d envisioned, we’re grateful that we’re still able to spend some time in the sun soaking in some much-needed vitamin D. Double gratitude for skin safety made easy with pocket-or-purse-sized SPF via these top sunscreen picks. —Vicki Duong

supergoop! Need an SPF touch up but don’t want to ruin your makeup? Try Supergoop! (Re)setting 100$ Mineral Powder SPF 45 ($40) for sun protection that also matte-ifies shine. Plus, this product comes with a built-in brush to help set your makeup.

first aid beauty. We love a multi-tasking product. First Aid Beauty Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 ($45) has been a favourite this summer for those no-makeup sun-soaking days. The mineral formula provides broad-spectrum protection and the sheer tint blends seamlessly with a multitude of skin tones.

la roche-posay. Perfect for tight spots (around the ears and along the scalp line), a stick sunscreen allows for precise application in an easy-to-use format. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Targeted Protection SPF 60 ($21) offers both UVA and UVB protection, and a compact size that makes it ideal for on-the-go summer days.

salt & stone. Lips need sun protection, too! Our lips tend to get parched in the sun and traditional balms without SPF can leave our peckers with a sunburnn. We love Salt & Stone SPF 30 Lip Balm ($7)—not only does it protect our lips, it also hydrates with ingredients like shea butter and sweet almond oil.

pūrlisse. While sun protection is number 1 when it comes to skin health, hydration comes in at a close second. Pūrlisse Blue Lotus Daily Moisturizer ($35) has become a year-round staple for us due to its powerhouse ingredient list. Not only does it provide SPF 30 protection, but it has blue lotus for anti-inflammatory benefits and soy to keep skin hydrated. Best of all? No white residue!
