The Best Sunscreens To Update Your Spring Skincare Routine

Don't walk, run.


For a lot of people, hearing the word ‘sunscreen’ immediately brings up a memory of their mam tackling them to the sand at the beach to smother them in thick white cream during the hottest Irish weather.

But we’ve come a long way, and have since learned the importance of wearing SPF every single day (yes, even in winter!).

There are now dozens of different lightweight and moisturising sunscreen lotions to keep your skin even, youthful, and protected from skin cancer – and if you don’t have an SPF in your daily skincare routine, you have to check out our top tier list of sunscreens below. Here’s to beautiful skin.

Glossier Invisible Shield

This lightweight water-gel sunscreen is a cult favourite because of its transparent formula – so you aren’t left looking pasty. It’s designed to work well with makeup and has a fresh tropical scent so you can feel summery every day of the year. Buy it here.

Niod Survival 30

What’s magic about the Niod Survival SPF is that it comes with a barely-there tint and a blurring effect on pores, so it’s ideal for everyday use and can be worn without makeup. It’s also got some seriously effective ingredients that protect skin against pollution and smog as well as the sun! Buy it here.

Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily Defense

Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily Defense is a must-have for skincare lovers, with SPF 50 and no fragrance in order to take serious care of your skin. Packed with Vitamin E and other good stuff, it doubles up as a moisturiser and helps to prevent premature ageing of the skin. Buy it here!

CeraVe AM Facial Moisturising Lotion

A mega multi-tasker, this CeraVe SPF moisturiser not only hydrates and protects, but uses hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to smooth and soothe skin too. It’s non-greasy and won’t clog pores, so it’s sure to work with every skin type – and the price tag doesn’t hurt either! Buy it here.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Age Correct SPF50+

The ultimate brand for those with sensitive skin, La Roche-Posay’s SPF boasts anti-ageing effects with technologies that improve dark spots and wrinkles and boost elasticity.
