I’ve done quite the deep dive and I’ve found some really great SPF beach products for August! While some of them are repeat products, each have a special purpose in my routine and make it in my bag for almost every vacation and adventure.
Translucent Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 30
I can’t say enough about this women-led brand! You’ve seen me mention it in a few blog posts before, but it really is a game changer when it comes to sun protection. I layer it on over my other sunscreen for a more mineral look, and it helps fight off my oily forehead. I also use it on the middle part of my hair, so my scalp doesn’t burn! It’s so multi-functional and a great go-to SPF.
Coola Peppermint Vanilla Lip Balm SPF 30
I never go to the beach without a protective lip balm! Even if there was no SPF in the tube, I’d still need to wear a balm of some sort. My lips get so chapped in the dry heat, and I often get dehydrated in these scenarios. This one has been a fan favorite for a while, and was even in my June Empties! The brand carries an unscented version, but this one is head and shoulders above the other one. I can’t recommend it enough!
Tula Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen Gel SPF 30
This SPF is both lightweight and gives an extreme glow. While it’s not waterproof, it is SPF 30 and stays on throughout the day. Another bonus? It protect against blue light!
EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46
This is by far my new favorite product. It’s light-weight and doesn’t clog my pores like so many other products. I’ve even noticed that it helps to clear my skin and give me a soft complexion. The niacinamide and acne-treating ingredients really do make it a great option for anyone wanting to keep their skin clear and protected.
EltaMD UV Sheer SPF 50
Another great option on the market? EltaMD’s UV Sheer is for those who need a water-resistant formula and a high SPF! It’s not oily, and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It also has a similar formula to the EltaMD UV Clear option, so those with sensitive skin shouldn’t have a problem.
