Finding a near-perfect sunscreen is no easy feat. Some leave your skin feeling too greasy, while others make it chalky and dry. Some add a ghostly white cast over the skin, others make you break out in what feels like an instant. But do not fret: great sunscreens do exist. And we’ve worked tirelessly to find them. Below, team Lionne share a handful of SPF formulas that are simply chef’s kiss.
Sarah’s favourite sunscreen
“Holidays are the only moment when my body is ritually moisturised from top-to-tow. Nuxe Sun SPF 50 Melting Lotion feels like I’m giving my skin the luxury it deserves, even if only for a hot minute."
Ksenia and Isla’s favourite sunscreen
Funnily enough, Ksenia and Isla love the same one: La Roche Posay's Anthelios UVMune 400 Invisible Fluid. Ksenia says: “I discovered it through my dermatologist who recommended it highly. Apparently my skin can experience sun damage within 90 seconds of non-protected sun exposure!”
Claudia’s favourite sunscreen
"I am obsessed with the Garnier Ambre Solaire Ultra-Light Sensitive Sun Protection Face Fluid SPF50+. The affordability, the fact it contains hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate the skin and not to mention it can act like a moisturiser as well as an SPF, helping to streamline my routine in the morning! My boyfriend loves this too and the 40ml size means it is perfect to take with you anywhere including holidays of course!"
Megan's favourite sunscreen
"My current favourite SPF is Ksenia's old fave: the Skingredients Skin Shield. I think that for the winter/cooler climates, this one just doesn't work with my dry skin because it causes me to flake slightly, but I gave it another shot when I was recently in California and LOVED it. It has a little bit of a tint, so once I put my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser over it I am pretty much fully covered."
Gigi’s favourite sunscreen
"I'm loving the Ultra Violette Extreme Screen Hydrating Body & Hand Skinscreen SPF 50+. It smells really lovely and gives your skin a subtle glow. It's good to use on the hands without making them greasy and it's very gentle on the skin.
Katie’s favourite sunscreen
"I love the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sun Protect Face Mist (mouthful to say.) It’s anti-shine which is great for my oily skin and the spray application makes it super easy to reapply throughout the day. Plus it’s factor 50 and super affordable!"
