The Highest Ranked Drugstore Moisturizer With SPF Right Now

As much as we love how our brightening serums, wrinkle-fighting eye creams, and luminous foundations make us look, none of them matter if we're not protecting our skin with great sunscreens. But as important as sun protection is, it tends to cost a pretty penny. Lucky for us, Rank & Style has the scoop on which product will give you the best bang for your buck.

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 UV Moisturizer the clear-cut winner.

The moisturizer gets high marks from Rank & Style because it's insanely popular and a top pick among editors. Users dig it, too. On Amazon, commenter Sunshine says: "[This] is my everyday moisturizer I've used for the last 10 years or so. It is really light and not greasy at all, and the SPF 15 was what sealed the deal for me since I live in California... This is the only moisturizer I've ever used where my face did not break out, itch, or turn red. Would definitely recommend to give it a try."

The light cream protects skin, prevents age spots, and fights free-radical damage, and serves as a great anti-aging product by hydrating skin and preventing uneven texture and fine lines. If you have very fair skin, you might want to follow up with another SPF product for additional protection. And don't forget to reapply this or another sunscreen throughout the day — especially if you are going to be outdoors.

If you're looking for a moisturizer that does it all, then you may have found your match. It's not called "7-in-1" for nothing.

Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer SPF 15, $15, available at Amazon.
