Summer is just around the corner, making sunscreen more important than ever! I have different favorites based on different uses. Here they are.

(1) For Daily Use: For daily use, I like to layer Estee Lauder Day Wear moisturizer, SPF 50, under a foundation that also has SPF. Since I often wear powder foundation, this gives me several layers of protection that often use different sunscreen ingredients. Plus Daywear is a nice light and fresh smelling daily moisturizer that works for most skin types.

(2) For Touch Ups Over Makeup: Many sunscreens break down quickly in sunlight, so they need to be reapplied fairly often. Doing that over makeup can be tricky, and that is where powder sunscreen comes in handy. Colorscience Sunforgettable comes in a tube with a built in brush for easy application over makeup. This is also a physical blocking sunscreen, so it won’t break down in sunlight the way chemical sunscreens do. I almost always have a tube of this in my purse in the summer. I originally got this as a press sample and have repurchased it multiple times.

(3) For Running: I am a distance runner and so I need a powerful sweatproof sunscreen when I am running. My favorite for this is Mission Sunscreen, which is designed with athletes in mind. It stays put and doesn’t seem to cause breakouts for me, which some of the other waterproof/sweatproof sunscreens do. This is another item I first got as a press sample and then repurchased.

(4) For My Lips: Don’t forget your lips! They need sunscreen too! Just as I do for running, I also often lean to Mission for this. Mission Lip Balm is a great sport lip balm that wears long and has SPF 15 protection.

  1. I need to check out that Mission skin care one for when I’m running around after my toddler!

  2. Powder sunscreen is awesome!! I’ve used a different brand before but they come in soo handy for shine control and sunscreen protection!

  3. I got the Colorscience in a Birchbox before, it really is a fabulous product!

  4. Great choices. I’ve seen Mission at CVS but hadn’t heard much about it.

  5. I have the Estee Lauder Day Wear, and I love it. Super high quality.

  6. I must be in the minority but I’ve tried those brush on powder suncreens and I just don’t feel like they are safe. I guess it’s because I feel like they don’t absorb in the skin and stay in place.

  7. Phyrra, I don’t think the powder ones work as well on bare skin. But I find that they cover pretty well if worn over foundation or moisturizer. That gives them something to stick to.

  8. I have always wanted to try that Colorscience! Glad to hear that you like it! :)

  9. I like Colorscience, too! That’s a great reminder I should use it more often!

  10. I didn’t even know about powder sunscreen–that’s awesome!

  11. I need to check out that Mission sunscreen for long summer walks!

  12. I have Mission Lip Balm which my mother given me. First I do not want to use it because I always think of side effects it will effect to my lips. But when I tried it I’m really glad what it effects to my lips. More power!

  13. Like Cindy, I didn’t think a powder sunscreen could be effective. I always thought a lotion would be best absorbed into the skin. Must give it a try for sure.
