We’d like to preface this by saying, any sunscreen you apply is going to do your skin a world of favours.

However, if you can find one that won’t break the bank and still protect you from Australia’s damaging UVA and UVB rays, then c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-e.

The next time you’re strolling the aisles stocking up on dinner essentials for the week, we highly recommend taking yourself  to the toiletry section to suss out some sunscreens.

If you ask us, these top SPF picks deserve a spot in your basket.

NIVEA Sun UV Face Shine Control SPF50

We say: This $12.99 SPF50 formula from NIVEA will hydrate dry skin and leave you with a long-lasting matte finish, all while protecting you from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

The non-sticky formula will layer well under makeup too, leaving no trace of a white cast. It’s no wonder the Sun UV Face Shine Control SPF50 has scored itself a 4.5 star rating from our members.

You say: “It’s perfect on my combination skin. In my opinion, it has one of the best textures for a facial sunscreen in the Australian market. I’m surprised that it’s not more popular!” – jupiter, read more reviews here….


Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face Lotion SPF50+

We say: Enjoy an oil-free, fast-absorbing formula that provides silky, continuous moisture. And that’s not even the best part. The signature Hawaiian Tropic fragrance will instantly transport you to a tropical island, and it’ll only set you back $15.99.

You say: “I love this face sunscreen. I use it all the time. Smells amazing and doesn’t leave skin feeling all clogged up and greasy after using it. I apply it first and apply make up on top if i am wearing makeup that day. The scent is amazing” – mserin23, read more reviews here….


Banana Boat Everyday Sensitive SPF 50+

We say: Formulated for those with sensitive skin, this water-resistant SPF will assist in the prevention of wrinkles thanks to it’s broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. 

You say: “This product is seriously amazing. I have super sensitive skin.  I let all my friends and family know about this brand and product as I love sharing products like this” – trinasmakeup, read more reviews here….


Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face & Body Lotion SPF50

We say: Neutrogena’s sunscreen rose to fame thanks to its super absorbent, non-comedogenic formula. The weightless consistency makes this SPF50 the perfect primer under foundation or tinted moisturiser. 

You say: “This is by far my favourite facial sunscreen I’ve ever used. I’ve used it for about 4 years now and never had an issue. My skin is usually very prone to breakouts from using sunscreen on my skin as they’re often greasy or thick formulas.” – demstro, read more reviews here….

  1. I've tried the nivea, and it broke me out. Idk what it is, maybe its just my skin recently cause its just so bad with everything but a lot of people tend to reccomend nivea sunscreen


    I am very happy to recommend Dr. Wale to everyone that truly needs help to fix his or her broken relationship and marriage. When I found Dr. Wale online I was desperately  in need of help to bring my ex Wife back. She left me for another man. It all happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. She just left me after 3 years of our marriage without any explanation. I was very worried and could not eat till I went online and I found testimonies on DR. Wale so I decided to contact Dr. Wale through his whatsApp and I explain everything to him so he helps me cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did the spell, my wife started texting and calling me again. She said that she was sorry and said that I was the most important person in her life and she knows that now. you can also contact him now for urgent help.
