If you’re the kind of shopper that religiously pours over customer reviews and researches any product before deciding to hit “add to cart,” then you’ve come to the right place.
When it comes to beauty products, especially skin care, what works for some people might not work for you. Like, is a celebrity-endorsed product just watered-down marketing? Will a sunscreen that works for a lighter skin tone still work the same on a darker skin tone? So many questions! Still, if one of your 2022 resolutions was to wear more SPF in the new year (a very good idea!), then you need to invest in a sunscreen that is both good for your skin and good for your wallet.
Lucky for you, I took the liberty of hunting down the top-rated sunscreens at Sephora that customers love and purchase over and over again. But all the products still had to meet certain criteria, including having over 100 reviews to make sure they were well reviewed and trialed by multiple shoppers. Oh, and they had to be under $50. We’re trying to encourage repeated SPF wearing here, people! Ideally, you’re buying these over and over the minute the bottle is empty.
Take care of your delicate skin and shop the top-rated, customer-vetted sunscreens from Sephora below. (FYI: The customer reviews have been lightly edited for clarity and punctuation but are all 100% real!)
Actual customer review: “Amazing sunscreen you can reapply throughout the day without touching your face. It gives you a nice glow effect. P.S. Don’t get it close to your eye area because it will irritate your eyes.”
Actual customer review: “This SPF is wonderful, super lightweight and has a very pleasant smell. Great for brown skin!!!”
Actual customer review: “Why had I never heard of this before? Probably because it’s a ‘male’ skin care product. How stupid that such labels could deny us this awesome sunscreen. As a woman with brown skin, I can attest to the fact that this leaves ZERO white cast! (SUPER IMPORTANT). It’s nongreasy and instantly absorbs into my skin. I’d even say it’s slightly mattifying for me because I have oily skin these days, and this sunscreen kept me looking pretty matte, even without any makeup! It’s not drying at all, which is a huge plus as well! ALSO, SO MUCH BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!”
Actual customer review: “I really like this sunscreen product. I have dry skin in the winter and normal/combo skin in the summer. Living in Arkansas, our summers here are like a damp washcloth, and I am sensitive to heaviness on my skin. I have not had an issue so far and am using this on the daily. High SPF is a great additional factor as 30 makes no dent here. I will definitely keep using this.”
Actual customer review: “The best daily SPF I’ve ever used. I originally bought a Super Goop chemical sunscreen that my skin had a terrible reaction to. I went in to return it and was suggested Sunday Riley. IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING! It wears great under makeup. It is great on my sensitive skin. It’s tinted pink, so the white cast is minimal (I have light to medium skin). Overall, just a great product that is now a staple in my daily routine.”
Actual customer review: “I’m obsessed with this! I have very fair, sensitive skin, so SPF is something I take very seriously. This formula is great. It has a very mild smell and a nice texture. It’s a very slack formula that spreads over your skin very smoothly. It dries down matte and silky and clear!! It is a great layer under makeup, and my makeup is still able to stay in place.”
