It’s Skin Cancer Awareness Month!  What better time to talk about sun protection! In this quick video, I share some of my favorite sunscreens for the face (and one handy water-resistant one for face & body) and they’re all UNDER $15.


SPF for Face

Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb The Antioxidant Super Moisturizer SPF 30 ($12.69) at Amazon
Good for all skin types, this lightweight lotion hydrates the skin while providing an SPF of 30. It is paraben- , petrolatum- and oil-free and does not leave a white residue on the skin after applying. Use it alone or under your makeup or moisturizer.

SPF with Tint
 No. 7 city Light
No. 7 City Light Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 ($14.99) at Target
This multifunctional, lightweight lotion offers an SPF of 15, antioxidant protection, hydration and a sheer tint for a more even looking skin tone. Available in three shades.




SPF for Teens & Tweens

c'est moi

C’est Moi Gentle Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 ($14.99) at
This facial sunscreen is made for kids in the teen and tween age range who have sensitive skin. Because it’s not thick and spreads easily, kids won’t mind using it every way. It also contains soothing and nourishing ingredients, like aloe, cocoa butter and kiwi, so parents can feel good about their kids using it.


SPF for the Face & Body 
Neutrogena SPF
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion ($10.99 and up) at Target
Available in SPF 30 and 50, this hydrating lotion can be used on the body and the face. It won’t clog the pores or leave an unpleasant residue and it’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes.
