This Neutrogena Body Mist wins hands down for ease of application. Can’t reach your back and no pool valet handy to help out? No problem. Toddler worming away? Just a quick spritz and she’s covered. There are so many sprays and mists on the market now, but we’ve stayed loyal to this one. (So has brand ambassador Jennifer Garner, who spritzes her family with a dose of Neutrogena spray-on sunscreen every morning.) It’s a broad-spectrum screen boasting helioplex, which is a combination of avobenzone and oxybenzone. The sheer, non-comedogenic spray leaves no slimy layer and we’ve never had a breakout. Plus, it’s widely available. There are at least ten variations now including the Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 with its nice icy sensation — lovely on a blistering day. Our only complaint? We wish the five-ounce bottle held more.
SPF: 45 Main Ingredient: helioplex Price: $12 for 5 oz.
