  1. my fave sunscreen is garnier ambre solaire moisturizing protection milk

  2. Quynh

    Shiseido spf 55 lotion


    I’m really loving the new Clean and Clear Day lotion with Spf 15.

  4. SnickerDoodle

    oooh! what a great package i am OBSESSED with all things bronzing. I have two favorite sunscreens. For serious sun exposure, like if I am outside all day or at the beach, I like the Coppertone baby stuff…in the spray bottle (that’s pure laziness there). and for daily use i like the olay one SPF 25

  5. KyaLyn

    For my face, MAC Select Tint SPF 15, for everything else, Coppertone Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30.

  6. My favourite sunscreen is La Roche-Posay Antelios W gel.

  7. Shelby

    Mine’s gotta be Banana Boat’s SunWear Faces Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30. It doubles as a primer for my foundation, how cool is that? :)

  8. Maren

    My favorite is the La Roche Posay Anthelios too.

  9. AmyLou

    My favorite sunscreen is the spray-on version from Neutrogena. It’s fast, quick and easy to use. No mess!

  10. Shayla

    i’m not overly picky about sunscreen…i just use tropicana (i can’t even remember the product name, that’s how unpicky i am)

  11. Stephanie

    I’ve been using the Coppertone Oil Free waterproof sunscreen with SPF 30 for years. With my acne-prone skin, it’s important for me to have a product that doesn’t clog pores and make me break out. This definitely fits the bill.

    For my face, I’ve been testing out the Olay Complete lotion (SPF 15) for sensitive skin.

  12. I like sunscreen made for babies. Or at least, ones that say, “So safe you could even use it on a baby.”

    Why? Because I’m allergic to most fragrances. Often, products will say “Fragrance Free” when they are SO not. When they say things about babies, then you can be pretty sure that they don’t have harmful chemicals. Then, and only then, will I believe them, although I’m still wary.

  13. Irina

    I use Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation SPF 35. :)

  14. Kalie

    I’ve been using No Ad SPF 50. I use anything with a 50 spf, because I’m so white. :) And some sunscreens burn my skin, but this seems to do okay, unless I wear it all day, then my face kind of hurts….lol…

  15. Ariana

    Hey Christine! I don’t tend to burn easily but I do always wear sunscreen at least on my face when I’m outside. I always use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55. It’s cheap and has lasted me forever and doesn’t make my face super oily even though it has a nice shiny glow to it after I put it on! :)

  16. My favorite sunscreen is Bullfrog SPF 36 (yeah, weird number i know). i bought it in Bermuda (for over twice the price of what it’s worth, stupid island prices!!), but it is AMAZING!! totally waterproof, very little scent and not sticky at all. And, it doesn’t clog my pores, so i can use it all over (instead of one for body and one for face).

  17. OOHHH I love Obagi SPF 35 healthy skin protection…it’s 9% micronized ainc oxide to protect against all spectrum UVA & UVB rays.
    Its so lightweight and unscented!

  18. Lucy

    I’m loving Oil of Olay Complete Defense Daily Moisturizer…it’s great for my sensitive skin and it has SPF 30!…Love it!

  19. Sarah

    Neutrogena with Helioplex and of course my fav Oil of Olay Total Effects!!

  20. Chrystie

    I really like Coppertone’s Oil Free waterproof sunscreen with SPF 15. It doesn’t make my acne prone skin breakout and it gives me the right amount of protection, since I tend not to burn.

  21. Morgan

    A discontinued (doesn’t it figure…) L’Óreal one. Smelled great and had quite an inventive anti-sand-clogging-up-the-opening top.
    Oh, and did the job protecting from the sun, lol.

  22. Daantje

    Right now I use Ultrasun SPF17. It is my favorite at the moment because I oly have to apply it once a day, it’s waterproof and it also gives a lovely glow to my skin.
    Never got sunburned using this!!

  23. My fav suntan lotion is the spray kind! I know, I’m totally lazy! But then, I don’t spend much time out in the sun! LOL!! 😀

  24. Kella

    I use natural sunscreen since I can’t use anything containing perfume. The health food store has a good selection :) I also like Neutrogena Dry Touch, but it is scented :(

  25. Miss J

    I really like the Neutrogina 85 spf for my face! I always get burned with anything else. This goes on clean and nice and really protects my skin. It’s lasted a long time too, maybe because I let the rest of my skin bask in the sun, but the 85 ALWAYS goes on my face! :)

  26. Monica

    I really like to protect my skin with Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch, it’s really soft, its absorved quickly and is not oily.. makes me feel protected!
    I have a question though.. I always go for higher protection, but a few days ago I read an article saying that over 30 SPF there is no real difference between products… I don’t really believe it but I’m not an expert.

  27. gracieo

    coppertone oil free spf 30…anything else breaks me out.

  28. Kirsten

    coppertone :)

  29. Anne

    I use Aveeno Sunscreen for Babies in SPF55. I like my skin cancer-free 😀

  30. Amanda

    I actually just use No-Ad. It’s cheap and it works! :)

  31. Sheena

    Neutrogena SPF 55 with Helioplex and Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30–just depends on what I’m doing that day and what I happen to grab :)

  32. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream for Face SPF 55 PA+++ is what I use when I am not using Shiseido’s Sun Protection Liquid Foundation Very Water Resistant SPF 42 PA+++. Boy that was long LOL!

  33. Ariele

    Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock w/ Helioplex. I never get burned with it :)

  34. I like the copertone kind that you spray on :)

  35. carriespooner

    I used to tan in the beds for years.. 80’s and 90s’. OMG why did I do that?

    Now I’m a Sunscreen freak. I’ve done my peels, retin-A and if you don’t sunscreen up.. you are REALLY toast!

    Right now I use Neutrogena’s SPF moisturizer for my face. I don’t go out without it!

    On my body.. I love Coppertone anything. I buy it for the smell. Waterbabies, spf 50 etc. I’ve got several. mmmmm

  36. Rubii

    Aveeno Postively Radiant 70!

  37. SSimpson

    My fav is Water Babies by Coppertone SPF 50. I have tried so many expensive ones and this is the only one I have used that stays on and hasn’t let me burn!

  38. mj

    I don’t have a current favorite. I was liking my Neutrogena SPF 30 lotion, but after a few months it separated and got all icky. I need a new facial sunblock!

  39. kaaren

    Neutrogena SPF 15 daily moisterizer and sunscreen–great stuff!

  40. Heather F.

    For my body: Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock SPF45, for my face: Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF45 daily & Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF45 or higher if I’m going to be outside for awhile!

  41. Lauren

    My favorite sunscreen for my face is Neutrogena because it doesn’t make my face feel too oily. For the rest of my body I just use Coppertone.

  42. kat

    Hawaiian tropic because it smells like coconut and otherwise sunscreen smells nasty to me D:

  43. Kandice

    Love the Neutrogena Dry Touch sunblock. I use it on myself and my two boys.

  44. grace

    i loveee the CVS brand sport spray SPF 50! I am a lifeguard so I need serious protection

  45. Amanda K.

    I always go back to Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection SPF 55

  46. Donna

    My favorite sunscreen for my face is Shiseido SPF 55 lotion. I’ve tried others but this works best for me.

  47. Justine

    I use the Hawaiian Tropic SPF 45 sun lotion for body because it smells like coconut more than smelling like sunblock… for my face, I use my foundation… Clinique’s Almost Make-Up SPF 15 Liquid Foundation. Though I need to find a good face sunblock.

  48. cathy

    I have to agree with some of the ladies here about the Shiseido-ultimate sun protection lotion for face/body spf 55 PA+++ as well. I really like this sunscreen. It smoothes my makeup application and it is water-resistant. What a great combo. Btw, it does not leave the white cast at all. It is a steal.

  49. Aeyrah

    Just regular Aveeno with SPF 30

  50. Jade

    I use Coppertone Sport 15, doesn’t smell funny and is reasonably priced, and I absoulutely love AloeGator spf 15 chapstick, it smells great and works!

  51. Tina

    I’m in love with Shiseido Extra Smooth Sun Protection Cream. This is the first sunscreen that hasn’t left with me greasy skin. The only problem with is that I have to avoid getting the cream too close to my eyes.

  52. Erin/slipnslide

    Shiseido SPF 55 is amazing! That’s my favorite.
    If I need a really matte look, Cosmedicine’s Medi-Matte with SPF 20 is perfect, but I wish it came with a little more protection.

    I’m looking forward to trying MAC’s Prep and Prime + SPF 50 sometime too.

  53. Kathleen

    For daily use I love Mary Kay TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25*.
    For the beach i love Coppertone Kids Continuous Spray Sunscreen Spf 50.

  54. Gina

    For serious sunscreen, I’m using Coppertone Continuous spray on… cuz I hate the greasy feeling of lotion sunscreens!

  55. Gail

    I love Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock. It’s light weight, never greasy and has a nice smell! Also it doesn’t give me pasty-face :)

  56. Karin A

    Coppertone– Like another person said, “I love the scent!” It just says summer to me—

  57. HeaTHER

    I love Banana Boat Spray On Sunscreen!

  58. Janet F

    Bananna Boat is my favorite that I use in the summer.

    Thank you!
