Our Favorite Moisturizers Formulated With SPFMay 17, 2019
There’s no denying the fact that sunscreen is a crucial part of every skin-care routine. Sunscreen helps protect our skin from harmful UV rays that are known to cause visible signs of premature skin aging and even some cancers. During the summer months — when we like to amp up our UV protection — we love reaching for facial moisturizers formulated with SPF. Besides, who doesn’t love a two-in-one product? Ahead, learn more about seven of our favorite SPF-infused moisturizers.

Inspired by one of our favorite cult-classic moisturizers, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, the brand’s SPF rendition is making all our summertime dreams come true. This light-textured formula offers all-day hydration while helping to protect the skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays. Apply in the morning after cleansing for moisturized and protected skin.
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Facial Moisturizer with SPF
Keep your skin happy (and protected!) with this double-duty moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 30.
