Favorite Sunscreens for Summer 2013

It's been a tough week battling a heatwave in NYC, but whether you are laying on the beach or out and about in the city, sunscreen is a must! There are a lot of things to factor in finding the right sunscreen. I love these because of the non-greasy and non-sticky formulas, SPF levels, and the fact that they don't have that sunscreen smell. 

1. Vichy Laboratoires Capital Soleil SPF 50 Lightweight Foaming Lotion, $28 - lightweight, air mousse sunscreen with multi-layer protection from UVA/UVB rays and freee radical damage. White Grape Polyphenols + Vitamin E for antioxidant protection. Leaves skin soft and smooth. 

2. COOLA Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Finish,$36 - antioxidant-infused, mineral matte sunscreen with a natural cucumber scent. Acts as the perfect primer under foundation, with a moisturizing, smooth, silky finish. Made with Vitamin C, Zinc and organic ingredients including Rose Hip and Evening Primrose Oils. COOLA Sport SPF Fresh Mango Moisturizer, $32 - 80 minutes of water resistance made with 70% organic inactive ingredients including Evening Primrose and Linseed and Coconut Oils. Love the mango scent!

3. Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50, $38 - oil-free, sheer formula has a silky texture, and weightless feel. Alguronic Acid combines with antioxidant-rich botanicals and UVA/UVB protecting actives to help delay signs of aging caused by the sun and environmental stressors. Can be used alone, applied over skincare products or under makeup for a soft, matte finish. 

4. Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protective Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 for Face/Body, $30 - Cream sunscreen that shields the skin against environmental aggressors.  Utilizes advanced sun care technology to protect against dryness, oxidative pollutants and UVA/UVB rays that cause photo-aging, spots and wrinkles.
