9 Sunscreens Our Beauty Experts Can’t Survive Summer Without

June 15th, 2017

I’ve finally become part of the smart grown-up women’s club that swears by wearing sunscreen every day. Sure, I sort of tried to say for years that I “always wore sunscreen,” but in hindsight, the meager amounts of SPF 15 that I put on selective body parts only in all-day blazing sun doesn’t really count. It wasn’t until I was pregnant with Henry, and started dealing with sun-induced melasma, that I started getting vigilant about my sunscreen use. And the new-to-me concept of reapplying! Since all sunscreens are not created equal (and some actually feel gross), I tapped our panel of beauty experts to spill the sunscreens they can’t live without. Keep scrolling for their picks, and I’d love to hear yours in the comments!

    Thank you for listing a “reef safe” brand! (Acure). I’m trying out this sunscreen from Stream 2 Sea which is described as reef-safe. I tend to go for physical blockers, and I recently learned that many ingredients from chemical-based sunscreens damage coral reefs (they cause coral bleaching) — so that is another reason for me to avoid chemical blockers. From what I learned, the following ingredients damage coral: oxybenzone, butylparaben, octinoxate and 4-methylbenzylidine camphor. Stream 2 Sea was one of the brands listed as reef safe based on my online search. I just ordered it so I have yet to try it – but as it does rely on physical rather than chemical blockers it may take some rubbing in for it to absorb and not look pasty/white. They have their own website, but the brand is also available on Amazon.
