5 Sunscreens For People That Hate Wearing Protection

Go White, Go Bright


If you’re concerned about dark spots and pigmentation, then this lightweight cream could be the answer to your prayers. With added skin-brightening ingredients such as citrus unshiu peel extract, you’ll notice clarity and a lit-from-within glow after a few days of use. The best thing about this product, though, is the fact it doesn’t even feel like a sunscreen – it’s more of a moisturiser than anything. Try Jurlique Purely White Skin Brightening Day Cream SPF30+, $70

A Hint Of TintTheCarousel-UltraceuticalsDailyShield

Made with 100% mineral ingredients, this new product also contains added vitamin B3 and E to keep skin nourished as well as protected from the sun. The star feature though, is the self-adjusting colour technology that mimics your skintone like a tint and blends seamlessly, no matter what colour you are – this proves to be really handy especially when you swap between foundation shades all season long. It works like magic before your eyes. Try Ultra UV Protective Daily Shield SPF50+, $65

Do The Dew


I’ve tried a few (read: a lot) BB creams in my time and this newbie from Lancome takes top prize. Even in the New York heat it kept my skin hydrated and dewy all day long, and it was just enough coverage for a daytime look. Bonus: the added SPF50 feels light as a feather – which makes it a winner in my eyes. Try Lancome City Miracle, $55

All About That Base



You can’t go past Revlon’s Airbrush Effect foundation for something with a bit more coverage. Formulated with soft focus pigments that cleverly diffuse light, this SPF20 buy will make you look poreless and glowy – and you won’t even realise you’re wearing sunscreen at all. Try Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Makeup, $36.95

TheCarousel-La Roche-Posay Anthelios


I get really dry skin on my legs and so this product was an absolute godsend for my scaly limbs. Enter La Roche-Posay’s newest product – a highly protective SPF50 sunscreen in the form of a nourishing oil, that dries instantly when applied. To use, spritz it straight onto your arms and legs (or any other part of your body), and pat it in for full effect. Try La Roche-Posay Anthelios Nutritive Oil SPF50, $35.95
