5 new sunscreens you’ll actually want to use

Hate sunscreen? These five new sunscreens are a treat to use.

Have you been burnt yet in the random flashes of hot sun? Learned your lesson? The new sunscreens are not the greasy, thick, white cast SPFs are your past. Meet the ones you’ll actually want to use.

Charlotte Tilbury’s new Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer SPF 50, €49, gives her signature poreless finish to the skin. It’s created with hyaluronic acid, pollution defence, sun protection and something called Collalift 18 – an extract of African Mahogany tree bark that improves the appearance of pores and fine lines. It feels weightless on, feels hydrating all day and leaves skin dewy and plump.

If you’re oily or blemish-prone, you’ll want to try Skinceuticals new Oil Shield UV Defense Sun Cream SPF 50, €46. It’s a lightweight formula made for hot days; it absorbs excess oil, leaves skin matte and blurs pores.

La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 AquaGel SPF30, €39.45, is four-in-one miracle formula. It’s a clear, gel texture that instantly plumps and hydrates skin, thanks to hyaluronic acid that skins right in, while antioxidant defense and sun protection get to work on defending your skin. It’s a gorgeous make-up primer, feels great on and absorbs fast, leaving your skin glowy.

The new Vichy Capital Soleil UV Age Daily SPF50, €22, is a whole serum, with a blend of dermatological actives like peptides, niacinamide and vitamin E so that it’s not just protecting skin from the sun and the environment, but also working against wrinkles and dark spots, all in one lightweight, invisible formula.

Avène’s new Intense Protect 50+, €22.50, is an ocean-safe, weightless formula that gives 8 hours of hydration, is sweat and water-resistant and protects skin from UVA, UVB and blue light.
