I know it’s Wellness Wednesday and Woman Crush Wednesday, but I’m burnt out on all things Wednesday-themed so I’m taking a week off! Sorry, if you love those series; they’ll be back in a week or so when I’m done being burnt out 😀 Today is all about my current sunscreen favorites!
I’ve tried more sunscreens than I can recount, but there are a few that have stuck with me alongside some recent discoveries that have easily become new loves in my sun protection arsenal. Since summer is nearly here, I figured now is as good a time as any to share my top picks for sun creams that actually work, are gentle enough for all skin types, smell lovely, AND help protect your skin from premature aging alongside UV rays.
The Best Natural Sunscreens
Sun Care to Protect, Heal and Repair Your Skin All Summer Long
Rainwater Botanicals Natural Sunscreen
This sunscreen from Rainwater Botanicals has been a favorite of mine for years! It’s gentle enough for all skin types, handcrafted in small batches from wild harvested and organic ingredients, and comes in a delicious vanilla coconut scent that’s perfect for summer!
Graydon Clinical Luxury Sun Cream
A relatively new discovery, this sun cream by Graydon Clinical Luxury has a barely-there scent and goes on like a dream! It’s super easy to blend out and has a very balancing finish that feels almost matte, but not drying at all. If you have oily, acne prone or combination skin, this is an ideal choice! This sun cream is also formulated with skin-repairing ingredients such a spirulina, green tea and various other plant ingredients to keep your skin healthy and youthful.
Jane Iredale Powder Me SPF 30
For those of you who cannot bear the idea of putting cream on your face during hot days, this SPF powder from Jane Iredale is perfect! Scentless, gentle, and easy to apply, this SPF powder comes with an easy powder puff applicator which you can swirl onto your skin throughout the day. It’s a great replacement for face and finishing powders if you want to protect your skin and keep oil at bay.
Block Island Organics Sunscreen SPF 30
Another new discovery of mine, this non nano sunscreen from Block Island Organics goes on smoothly with no white cast, includes natural and non-toxic ingredients, is vegan, cruelty free, and gentle enough to use on your entire family!
Jane Iredale Glow Time Mineral BB Cream SPF 25
This Mineral BB Cream is perfect for those of you who shudder at the idea of going makeup-free at the pool or beach. This BB Cream gives wonderful coverage, is formulated with natural and organic ingredients, smells lovely, and offers sun protection alongside antioxidants for the ultimate face product in summer.
COOLA Sport Spray SPF 30 – Tropical Coconut
Last, but certainly not least, is the COOLA Sport Spray which is my absolute favorite sunscreen spray! I’ve used this stuff for years and years and I love it! It’s the easiest way to protect my skin at the pool and beach without too much effort. The spray goes on easy, protects my sun with natural ingredients, and smells incredible (tropical coconut is very similar to banana boat and other tropical sunscreens, but without the toxic ingredients!).
