Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, from $52
This has one of the lightest textures out there, so you never get that greasy and sticky feeling on your skin. Plus there is no whitish residue on the skin.
BEST STAYING POWER
Shiseido WetForce Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion Water Resistant SPF50+
We like this sunscreen as it stays on the skin and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. Pack it in your bag on your next vacation.

Yes, Chanel does sunscreen in the most luxurious way possible. Expect sleek packaging, a beautiful texture and a formula that protects your skin both internally and externally.
LipHop Moisturizing Lightweight Sun Protection Spray SPF50/PA++++, $12.90
Perfect for kids and covering large areas of the body like the legs and back, this spray on sunscreen is made in Japan, yet is super-affordable.
BEST MOISTURISER WITH SUNSCREEN

This cult French pharmaceutical brand has a new moisturiser with sunscreen that is made for everyday use. The smooth, almost powdery finish it leaves on skin means it can double up as a makeup base.
