The sun is finally starting to peek out from behind the grey days, and we are here for it. So below are some of our favourite face sunscreens to get you ready for afternoons spent outdoors.

Oh, andĀ remember to pack a hat.

Glossier Invisible Shield

This Glossier product goes on clear like a serum, making it perfect to use every day; it really just feels like a step in your skincare routine. Plus it is a great size for throwing in your beach bag or carry-on.

Coola SPF 30Ā Mineral Face Matte Cucumber

Coola is a favourite at the office. We love the cucumber matte sunscreen because it is designed for daily useā€”it is quite light and absorbs easily into the skin. You really do not get the feeling of clogged pores, and the scent is cooling and refreshing.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Fluid Lotion SPF 60

This one is definitely the most liquid-y of the bunch, but we like that it is great for sensitive skin. Anthelios is also fragrance-free, which can be nice for a face sunscreen.

Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30

Drunk Elephant is another brand that continues to impress at HQ. We are already big fans ofĀ the serums, cleansers, and oils, and this daily protection sunscreen goes on sheer and even hasĀ grape juice extract for calming redness.

Now go have some fun in the sun.
