The Best Under-$10 Drugstore Sunscreens for Every Skin Type
OK, so you know you need to use sunscreen, right? You know that 1 in 5 Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetime, and that you shouldn’t step outside without a thick layer of sunscreen covering your face (and body), lest the world strike you down? Right, good. Then you also know that most drugstore sunscreens kind of feel awful on your skin — whether they’re too heavy, sticky, oily or slimy — and that the lightweight cult-favorite formulas can also cost as much as your cell bill. Therein lies the conundrum.
Or it did until we came around. Because trust us when we say you don’t need to spend a zillion dollars just to protect your face from sun damage or skin cancer — you just need to know where to look. So we rounded up the five best sunscreens for every type of skin — including dry, sensitive, oily, acne-prone and combination — so you have literally zero excuse not to slather these formulas on every single morning. Oh, and did we mention they’re all under $10? Yup, you’re welcome. Scroll down to find your new best friend.
