We tried 11 physical sunscreens this summer during lockdown and still like our curated range for your kids & babies the best! :)

After more than 60 hours of research, and many more wearing sunscreen on our children, we’ve determined that the best sunscreen for everyday use is the one you’ll apply liberally and often, so it should be inexpensive but still feel good. Most people don’t wear nearly enough sunscreen. That’s why we recommend these affordable, widely available formulas that our test panel liked wearing best!
If you prefer using a dedicated face sunscreen, if you’re looking for a reef-safe formula (which contains only physical UV blockers—no chemical filters), or if you need something that won’t stain white clothes, we have picks for you, too. In addition, although we don’t recommend that most people use a spray sunscreen, we do recognize that it’s the best option for some.
