Best Facial SPF? Help!


Shoutout to @iluvhotsauce (we love hot sauce, too) who posed the above on Instagram to us. We got you, dude.

Lucky for everyone, there are a couple of options to pick from. The drugstore standby (a starter sunscreen, if you will) is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen. No grease here—nor is there that wretched sunscreen smell. Protects up to (and above?) SPF 100+, so no sunburn either.

For a bit more of a splurge, Coola Classic Face Sunscreen SPF 30 in Cucumber has been known to convert even the least loyal of SPF users. The 70-percent organic formula has the aura of actually bettering your skin instead of just protecting it. And who doesn't love a bright blue bottle in the summertime? Anyone?

But if layering makeup on top of sunscreen just seems like too much as the humidity continues to climb, consider a multi-tasker. The Avène Haute Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50 is a tinted solid that turns creamy at your touch and goes on matte for the long-wear durability that dreams (and bathing suit ads) are made of. Don't be intimidated by the shades—they go on so sheer, it's more of a hint of color rather than a more foundation-like veil. On top of that, it's a physical formula as opposed to chemical, so it's perfectly wonderful for sensitive skin.

Got a question? Give us a ring at #AskITG on your social network of preference, and we'll do the legwork for you. It'd be our pleasure.
