Searching for a sunscreen that’s perfect for your skin type can be challenging, especially when the options are seemingly endless. While protecting your skin is always important, you also don’t want a formula that leaves behind a white cast, is difficult to spread or feels greasy after application. If you’re looking for a sunscreen that checks all of the boxes, we put together this list of some of our favorite options that we’ve tried and all are easily accessible on Amazon.
