10 Moisturizers With SPF to Keep You Looking Younger, Longer

If you’ve ever talked to a dermatologist, skincare junkie, or grooming wizard about best skincare practices, you’ll know that everything you do for your skin is pretty much pointless if you aren’t also wearing sunscreen everyday. The sun is damaging, drying, can leave spots and deepen scars, and will getcha even on cloudy days (it is ~10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, after all).

Unfortunately, sunscreen is very easy to forget about if you aren’t headed to the beach, which is sadly the case most of the time. So it’s a good idea to choose a moisturizer—something you already use everyday—that contains SPF too, in order to make it impossible for you to forget. Sunscreen has a bad reputation of being sticky, greasy, and leaving a white cast on your skin, but not all sunscreens are made equal—so here are the 10 we recommend you check out. Pro tip: If it is sticky or leaving a white film, just mix it with a drop of your favorite face oil and it’ll blend right in.

Mineral Sunscreen SPF 20

Beauty by Earth amazon.com


If you prefer to go the all-natural mineral route for sunscreen, this is a great, affordable option for everyday use. Best blended with a drop of face oil.  

Daily Facial Sunscreen SPF 40

EltaMD amazon.com


EltaMD’s daily facial sunscreen is derm-approved and shoppable on Amazon. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which will moisturize and plump your skin. 

Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 40

First Aid Beauty dermstore.com


First Aid Beauty’s formula is clean, reliable, and soothing. It’s safe for sensitive skin and doesn’t leave any sticky residue. 

SPF 15 Oil Free Moisturizer

Baxter of California dermstore.com


Baxter makes a great oil-free option. This SPF 15 is great for everyday use, but not high enough strength for a full day out in the sun.

Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47

Josie Maran sephora.com


Josie Maran’s moisturizer with SPF comes out white, but blends in quick, as it is packed with nourishing oils. 

Facial Fuel SPF 20

Kiehl’s kiehls.com


Kiehl’s Facial Fuel is a solid choice if you like to avoid oil-based products on your face. 

Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40

Supergoop! sephora.com


Supergoop’s chemical formula is for those who want increased UV protection and a rich, whipped moisturizer, too. 

Zincscreen 100% Mineral Lotion SPF 40

Supergoop! nordstrom.com


Supergoop also makes an all-mineral option, if that’s what you’re looking for. Because zinc tends to leave a white cast more often than a chemical sunscreen would, this formula is slightly tinted, but blends in very quick. 

City Skin Age Defense SPF 50

Murad murad.com


Murad’s face sunscreen is lightweight, non-greasy, and slightly tinted. It also shields the skin from pollutants, if you’re a city dweller. 

Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer

Dermalogica sephora.com


Dermalogica’s Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer is great for sensitive or problem skin, and blends in very smoothly.
