Expensive sunscreens are definitely no better than cheap ones, but we have to have one high-end sunscreen in our summer repertoire. Maybe it’s a girl thing. Chanel would be going overboard but La Roche-Posay is sort of low-end (i.e. affordable) on the high-end spectrum. We’ve been fans of this PABA-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic product for years. It’s made with titanium dioxide and is perfect for sensitive skin, epidermis prone to breakouts and anyone who hates the feeling of having too much stuff on their face. It leaves skin matte, not greasy, and for good measure it contains an anti-oxidant complex called Senna Alata from the medicinal tree candle bush.
SPF: 60 Main Ingredient: senna alata Price: $24 for 1.8 oz.
