Best Sunscreens For Face | Space NK
By now, you probably know that wearing sunscreen is a daily requirement to protect your skin and keep it healthy all year long. Some even say that SPF is the best anti-ageing ingredient you can incorporate into your skincare routine. Yet, finding the best sun cream for your skin type is no mean feat. The most important thing is to find a sunscreen with a texture you like that you’ll enjoy applying every day as that will make is easier for you to add it into your daily routine.

How to find the right SPF for you

Gone are the days where sunscreen used to be thick, greasy and unsuitable for all skin tones and skin types. These days we’ve got plenty of modern formulations to choose from. Whether you like mineral or chemical sunscreen, something neutral or tinted, the possibilities are (almost) endless. We’ve tried and tested a lot of sun creams ourselves, if you’re wondering what the best sunscreen for you is, read on to explore the ones we highly rate.

If you’ve been on Instagram or TikTok over the past few months you’ll have seen Summer Friday’s sunscreen on your feed. The brand is all about crafting products that fit seamlessly into your routine, and this one is no exception. The lightweight formula offers SPF 50 protection and melts into skin and feels like you’re not wearing anything. If you have dry skin, it’s a great option as it hydrates without feeling heavy and gives your skin a gorgeous radiant finish.

The water-resistant formula is perfect for holidays. Plus, it’s the ideal sunscreen to travel with if you’re flying as it doesn’t count as a liquid.


Hello Sunday

Best Multitasking Sunscreen
We love a serum SPF and this one from Hello Sunday not only protects against UV rays, but it also shields skin from pollution and blue light. If you spend a lot of time in front of a screen or live in the hustle and bustle of a city, this is the best sunscreen for your face. Plus, it contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to give your skin an extra boost.



Sun Sensitive Oil-free Milky Fluid SPF50, £25.00

Best Sunscreen For Oily Skin
Anyone with sensitive or oily skin knows the struggle of finding a sunscreen that doesn’t result in a break out. If you’re still looking for the best SPF for oily skin, let us point you in the direction of Lancaster Sun Sensitive Oil-free Milky Fluid. It’s lightweight, it’s oil-free and it doesn’t give you that greasy sheen that some SPF formulas leave. Bonus points: it’s ocean-friendly so you can wear it on holiday too.



Advanced Day Ultimate Protect SPF50+, £59.00

Best Sunscreen For Hyperpigmentation
Of course Medik8 has an excellent SPF, which helps to not only protect skin and blur fine lines and wrinkles, but also helps fade hyperpigmentation overtime. If acne and pigmentation are skin concerns you’re keen to tackle, this might be the one for you.

Best Lightweight Sunscreen
Ultra Violette's newest offering, Fave Fluid is another great SPF from the Aussie brand. It's hard to imagine a lighter weight formula exists. The watery consistency is easy to apply and absorbs super quickly. If you hate wearing sunscreen on your face because it feels heavy, this is absolutely worth seeking out. Plus, it gives your factor 50 sun protection.
