The hunt for a face sunscreen that isn’t a total chore to slather on is year-round—and it’s a question constantly at the tip of Who What Wear readers’ tongues. Where oh where are the sunscreens that won’t clog your pores, leave a white cast, stink to the high heavens, or feel like liquid chalk on your face? Of course, the easy answer is to say they don’t exist and to forgo daily face sunscreen altogether—though skin health experts caution against it. Even on days when you’re not hiking or at the beach, UV damage can accumulate to cause dark spots, wrinkles, and a ruddy complexion (not to mention more seriously health-risking issues). "When out in the sun or even outdoors on a cloudy day, you should reapply a generous layer every 90 minutes," advises celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau.
But being good about sunscreen is only feasible once you’ve found a product or two you can actually stand. In order to provide the best recommendations, we hit up fellow beauty editors from all our favorite publications—from Allure to Teen Vogue to Bustle—and asked them to share their holy-grail sunscreens (plus their wisest SPF advice). These selective folks have tried practically every sunscreen on the market while acquiring smart suncare intel from the industry’s leading experts. Read on to see their top products and tips.
