While sunscreen should be a part of your daily routine year-round, the warmer months ahead will likely mean more time spent outdoors. And the more hours in the sun you spend, the more protection you’ll need.
Luckily, Amazon Prime’s life-saving 2-day shipping means you can get the skin care essentials in time for the holiday weekend. So if you’re in the midst of a busy workweek and have plans for fun in the sun, Prime is the way to go.
We did all the work for you and rounded up the top-rated sunscreens on Amazon so that you can be covered this weekend and all summer long. Shop the best sunscreens available on Amazon and eligible for Prime shipping, below.
Banana Boat’s popular water-resistant formula (80 minutes) is lightweight but offers substantial SPF 50 protection. The affordable bottle also has a convenient pump, which makes it perfect for the whole family to use.
Reviewers say this formula — which is made following guidelines set by the Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society — doesn’t leave behind a white cast and smells great. However, those with sensitive skin are big fans because it’s a gentle lotion that protects without irritating skin.
Just spray and go with this reef-friendly sunscreen, which many reviewers say is great for active kids. “Alba Botanica's proves to be the most effective and safe for my children! It protects against sun damage, is easy to use, and does not cause any rash, it smells good, too. Will continue to purchase this product and only this product!” wrote a happy customer.
This facial sunscreen checks off all the boxes: It’s affordable, non-greasy, water-resistant and has a slight tint with a matte finish. “I am completely blown away by this $10 tinted sunscreen! It works just as well as high end products at a fraction of the price. The formula is perfect and doesn't clog my pores,” raved a fan of the mineral sunscreen.
Yes, it’s pricey — but totally worth the splurge according to dermatologists and reviewers alike. The Consumer Reports-approved sunscreen can be used from head to toe and goes on like a silky lotion. “Thanks to this product I can enjoy the feel of the sun on my skin again. It's expensive, but worth every penny,” said one reviewer.
If you’re looking for a reef-safe sunscreen, Amazon shoppers swear by the mineral-based Thinksport formula. “This was the first time I haven’t burned in Hawaii. We had 3 brands of reef-safe lotions. This one, by far, was the favorite,” explained one fan. “The others were either way too hard to rub in or felt weird on the face. It stayed on great after swimming. We didn’t feel greasy. My skin didn’t feel clogged.”
For the most lightweight and sheer experience, this Neutrogena favorite gets the job done. It is so light, it practically disappears unto skin upon application — but it’s working, even if you can’t feel it. “I purchased this product for my husband after doing research to find dermatologist recommended sunscreen for those with pre cancerous skin on the face,” wrote one reviewer. “He is outside most of the time and has a hard time finding a sunscreen that will protect his skin, stay on his skin, not drip off with sweat, not irritate skin, and not leave a white film on the skin. This sunscreen is the answer for all those issues.”
