The best kind of sunscreen is the kind you actually want to wear—not only because it does a kickass job of protecting you, but also because it makes you look even more beautiful than you already are! Leave it to us to find products that do both jobs (function AND form) equally well. That’s right. We’ve found sunscreen you can count on to keep your makeup face intact in the sweltering summer heat. 

Go ahead and sweat it out this summer.. Our top sunscreen picks are either so light they’re invisible on your face, or they have a pretty cool dual function, acting as both sun protection AND makeup.


Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face and BodyClinique Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for Face SPF 50 ($34.00) and Body SPF 30 
($41.00): EXCLUSIVELY AT SHOPPERS DRUG MART

We’re told we need to wear sunscreen every damn day, no matter what we’re up to, but if we’re honest, we sometimes don’t. Why? Because who wants to go to work or a yoga class feeling all greasy? Clinique’s new Mineral Sunscreen Lotions for Face and Body solve this conundrum. They’re lightweight and invisible and blend effortlessly into the skin.

Suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin, the Invisible Shield Technology delivers protection against both the sun and environmental aggressors. Now you’ve got no excuse to go out there unprotected.

Fragrance, water resistant and paraben free, it offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection delivered via a number of sunscreen filters, including their patented Mexoryl® sunscreen technology.

And here’s the best part: This product is perfect for everyday wear under your makeup, or alone for a fresh-faced look. You won’t even know it’s there.

This Wonder Woman of a sunscreen protects you from harmful UV rays, is alight-coverage BB Cream, and more! Offering powerful, beautiful sun protection in a transfer-and water-resistant BB tinted formulation featuring Wet Force Technology, your skin will be glowing with health while you have fun in the sun, get active, or chill with friends on a patio.
