The sun has finally returned to Russian cities and this means that it is better not to ignore sunscreen, especially if you use active cosmetics or you have light sensitive skin. Here are eight great sun protection products you can buy right now without going broke.
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 25
More often, customers praise the CeraVe sunscreen stick, but like many other pharmaceutical brand products, it was not delivered to Russia. However, this moisturizing lotion with SPF 25 is also good and can suit all skin types, including oily skin - its texture is quite light, it does not whiten the skin, it absorbs quickly and moisturizes well. If you want a comfortable everyday product that doesn't get in the way of your makeup, this is it. In addition, he has a solid package with a dispenser: it is better to use a product with such a low protection factor in the city, but it is also convenient to take it when traveling.
BabyGanics Mineral Sunscreen
Sunscreen with SPF 50, designed for children: there is nothing superfluous in the composition, so it is suitable also for owners of sensitive and reactive skin. Quite dense and waterproof - it will not be very good as a makeup base, but this is an excellent tool for hot climates and relaxation by the water. It noticeably whitens the skin, but it stays on it for a really long time - it is enough to renew the Sanskrin layer once a day.
Sunscreen Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Suncreen SPF 45
Neutrogena has a wide range of Sunscreens in different formats and textures (and at very reasonable prices), and most of them can always be found on iHerb. This cream has a fairly high protection factor, but it was nevertheless invented with a setting for comfort - it is very easily distributed and absorbed, noticeably mattifies the skin and lies quietly under the makeup. A rather strong fragrance can be considered a disadvantage, but it is difficult to name an annoying herbaceous smell. There are also versions of the cream with SPF 55 and 100+ protection factors, but the difference in their power is difficult to catch if you are going to use the product in the city and do not neglect the renewal of the layer.
Hada Labo Gokujyun White Gel UV SPF 50+
Japanese brand Hada Labo's sunscreen hit is definitely one of the best everyday sunscreens for city life. Gel texture is generally rare for this category of products, but if you are annoyed by thick creams with physical filters (and if you have nothing against chemical filters), this is your choice. It lays on the skin with a transparent layer and is not felt, but still remains on it - it has no matting properties, so if you don't like shine, you should turn to other formats. The bonus is also a good moisturizer, which in the summer does not require the application of other sunscreen creams.
Sun Look Cushion
The product from "Girlfriend" is in a very good cushion format for Sanskrins - it is convenient to carry it with you, and the property of cushion sooner or later does not become a problem, given that it is better to use sunscreens to the end and not put off the stock for the future. Suitable as a makeup base. Sanskrin contains silicones, so in extreme heat it can flow, and also leaves a noticeable whiteness on the skin: it will not go away, especially if you renew the layer on top of the makeup, but it perfectly hides under a light tone or BB cream.
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 +
Another Japanese water-based product with a very light texture that does not cause problems in the form of white streaks. We have repeatedly praised the inexpensive Biore sunscreens and with a clear conscience can recommend again - in terms of price-quality ratio, they remain one of the best on the market. Despite its imperceptible density, it has a high degree of sun protection, SPF 50+.The updated version of 2017 has become also waterproof, so the cream can be safely taken to the beach.
Yadah Oh My Sun Block SPF35
The sunscreen comes from Korea in two sizes - twenty and fifty milliliters, the choice of either will not hit your pocket hard, and the mini version also fits easily into your pocket. Its texture is closer to gel, its properties are very similar to Biore - it also provides basic hydration, absorbs quickly and behaves normally under makeup. At the same time, its protection factor is not prohibitive, but SPF35 is enough for a moderately sunny city summer. The packaging pleases: at the end of the tube there is a hygienic thin spout, which also makes it possible not to squeeze out half of the package at a time.
Uriage Bariesun Mineral Stick SPF 50+
Another great tool for those who prefer physical filters, Uriage has a full line of mineral sunscreens, including a handy stick. The manufacturer recommends using it on "vulnerable areas" (for example, applied to tattoos and fresh scars), but it is quite suitable for everyday use or travel: a high SPF 50 is available. You need to update it quite often, but the stick format itself allows you to do this without difficulty in almost any conditions.
