Best Natural Sunscreens 2015 Edition

Best Natural Sunscreens 2015 EditionWell friends, I’ve been slathering on ALL the sunscreens since spring and have finally narrowed down my must-buy list. Every year the natural formulas grow in number and get so much better—less tacky/greasy/white!—so let’s focus on those. As always, what counts is that you don’t leave the house without at least one of these:  BeautyCounter Stick Sunscreen SPF 30 ($15) slips right into your bag or back pocket and in addition to face can be used on all of the places you forget like lips and ears. The water resistance factor is a major bonus. //  TarteGuard 30 Sunscreen Lotion ($32) is for all of you who have a hard time even washing your face at night, let alone layering on products in the morning. This is all you’ll need. I’m just thrilled to see a chemical-free broad spectrum option on the market! // Arcona Reozone 40 ($24) – One of my all-time favorites, Arcona’s face block is just a little bit dewy, lightly tinted and 100-percent natural. // Coola Sport SPF 35 in Citrus Mimosa ($36) – For some reason natural body blocks are the WORST in terms of consistency and the weird trace they leave behind but this one feels good, smells juicy, and soaks right in. // BareMinerals SPF 50 Daily Prep Lotion ($30) – A whisper light, oil-free block with a whopping SPF 50 is essential in my book, for those days when you’re hitting the patio hard. This is so sheer it’s like minerals suspended in water, a consistency you’ll come to love and that I predict we’ll be seeing more of in the future!

What sunscreens have you been using this summer? Any new discoveries?
