Top 5 SPF Face Creams

The most important product to have in your skincare arsenal.

Alpha H Protection Plus Daily SPF 50, 30ml, £23

WHY WE LOVE IT

It’s not easy to find a moisturising sun cream with an SPF of 50, thankfully this one lived up to our expectations.  A multi tasking product that moisturises, sun shields, and primes.  It sinks into the skin easily creating a great base for your make up.   Contains pomegranate nectar and mango seed butter to help hydrate and nourish skin whilst vitamin E and aloe vera help prevent from further moisture loss.

“It’s a tinted moisturiser that’s very sheer and the reason I like it is simple really, nearly all SPF’s make me break out and clog my skin and this one doesn’t. And beacause you apply it as a tinted moisturiser you don’t really need any other make-up – it really evens out your skin beautifully. Apha H’s usual premium quality, anti ageing, the lot!”

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Riche SPF 20, 50ml, £18

WHY WE LOVE IT

Seriously moisturising and easy to apply, this sinks easily into the skin and leaves it feeling hydrated and comfortable.

“I have used various products from La RP as they were highly recommended by a dermatologist friend of mine.  I particularly like this SPF cream as it comes in a pump, so dispenses exactly the right amount to cover your face.  No fragrance, light fluid which is absorbed quickly.”

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 30, 50ml, £30

WHY WE LOVE IT

An invisible SPF that actually works! This will leave absolutely no white cast on your face no matter your skin tone.  It has a balmy/silicone texture when applied  which makes it easy to apply and spread across your face leaving your skin prepped and primed for make up.

“Finally,  a clear sunscreen! I no longer need to worry about my sunscreen leaving a white cast on my face!  Silky and smooth, applying SPF on my face everyday no longer feels like a chore.  Non clogging, non greasy it also works well as a primer – I’ve finally found my holy grail of SPF’s!”

La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 30, 50ml, £17.50

WHY WE LOVE IT

Hydrating and lightweight but not greasy or tacky in the slightest.   Easy to apply leaving no white marks whatsoever and provides a great base for your makeup.

“It’s one of the few SPF’s I’ve tried that doesn’t leave a white cast on my skin.  It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and sits well under make up, but I also find it adds a bit of a glow(very subtle) which is a nice added extra.

Skinceuticals Mineral Matte UV Defense SPF 30, 30ml, £41

WHY WE LOVE IT

This goes on smoothly and evenly and provides a great base for make up.  It soaks up any excess oil on the skin leaving you grease free all day long!

“I really like the consistency of this cream, spreads easily and leaves a semi matte finish which is great for under make up.”
