Our Top Facial Sunscreens For Everyone (Yes, Even You)

I know, I know - I've heard it before. You've tried every sunscreen and they all make you breakout, make your skin greasy or make your eyes sting. Sound familiar? I've been there too, don't worry. The journey to the perfect sunscreen is a bumpy one, but we're in this together.

Now, there are some bloody good facial sunscreens out there, and we probably all know by now that we should be wearing SPF50+ daily (if not, listen to Episode 6 of our podcast here).

I've rounded up my top facial sunscreen picks for oily, dry, acne-prone and ageing skin, so you can discover the right formula for you before summer hits. Thank me later.


If anyone knows sensitive skin, it's the French, La Roche-Posay's Anthelios is not only suited to acne-prone skin, but also sensitive skin types as well. With a lightweight and mattifying finish, this non-greasy formula helps to balances moisture levels to regulate oil production and cut shine on oily/combo skin types. It contains Airlicium, also known as the “anti-sweat molecule”, that has the unique ability to absorb perspiration, sebum and oil up to 150 times its volume.

Particularly suited to dry and mature skin types, this nourishing anti-aging oil SPF formula has a unique gel oil texture that's rich in natural antioxidants and Collagen Pro-47 that helps to protect and increase the presence of collagen to improve the skin’s firmness. It also contains chia seed oil (rich in omegas 3 and 6) to help keep the skin nourished and feeling supple, and ginger root extract to defend against environmental aggressors.

This lightly hydrating facial sunscreen offers anti-ageing benefits whilst providing environmental protection. This formula offers both physical and chemical sun protection, helps to prevent premature ageing and pigmentation, and also contains Niacinamide to help restore the skin, improving the appearance of pores and uneven texture.


More than just a nice physical daily sunscreen for extra-sensitive skin, Ultra Violette's Clean Screen is a mattifying choice for combination to oily skin types. This balancing sunscreen offers heaps of soothing natural ingredients like cucumber and organic green tea, too. The formula won’t aggravate acne, eczema, roseacea or dermatitis prone skin, and doesn't leave a noticeable white cast on the skin.
