Whether you’re going to your favorite beach town for the weekend or hiking up to the mountains for a spiritual retreat, you’re most likely going to be under the sun. That’s why we rounded up a list of our favorite sunscreens that you can use for this upcoming Labor Day weekend, depending on your skin type!


FOR ACNE-PRONE, EASILY IRRITATED SKINCosrx’s Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. This is the perfect sunscreen to not only protect your skin with SPF 50/PA+++, but it also soothes redness and irritation from acne with its infused aloe vera.

FOR SENSITIVE SKINKlairs’s Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion. It’s widely known to be difficult to find sunscreen that’s suitable for sensitive skin! However, Klairs always brings the best skincare products for those dealing with sensitivity through its mild, soothing and hydrating ingredients. This sunscreen in particular contains SPF 40/PA++, and it contains guaiazulene, which is an extract from chamomile oil, giving the lotion its beautiful blue color.

FOR AGING SKINA.True’s Black Tea All Day Sun Cream. This sunscreen is really good for those who are dealing with signs of aging as it’s formulated with SPF 50/PA+++ and 39% black tea water. Black tea is rich in antioxidants, which help to eliminate free radicals and slow down the aging process.

FOR OILIER SKINA.True’s Black Tea All Day Sun Gel. This is the lighter, gel sister of the above-mentioned sunscreen. It does have a lower SPF level—SPF 30/PA++, to be exact—however, it goes great against oily skin types and feels super lightweight on the skin.

FOR DEHYDRATED SKINPrimary Raw’s Sun Doyou The White. This formula is packed with hydration, as well as SPF 25/PA++ to protect your skin. It’s hypoallergenic, hydrating, but non-sticky. It’s made with Soy Phyto Placenta & seven amazing ingredients—Soybean Fermentation, Willow Bark Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark, Oregano, Chamaecyparis Obtusa, Portulaca Oleracea, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root—that provide nourishment to the skin.
