The catch-22 when it comes to sunscreen is that applying, and then reapplying it, through the day can be at odds with our makeup. The wrong formula can turn your second-skin foundation application into a cakey, pastey nightmare. Thankfully, a slew of cutting-edge SPF sprays are solving this conundrum–with some even doubling as setting sprays. To ensure that your skin and face beat are well taken care of this spring/summer, stock up on one of these protective mists.
This SPF 30 formula is 70% certified organic (AKA great for sensitive skin) and will seal your face beat in with a lightweight matte-finish.
