9 Ways To Get Your SPF Without The Grease

While we're the first ones to tout the virtues of wearing sunscreen every waking minute of the day — premature wrinkles, skin cancer, and hyperpigmentation? No thank you —we're also the first to admit it's kind of a pain in the arse. All that reapplication, not to mention the gross, oil-slick feeling most formulas give your skin, plus the propensity for making your makeup slide off in a hot second — all bummers.
But since you should never have to sacrifice your skin to appease your vanity, we rounded up some of the best, non-greasy sunscreens for face and body currently on the shelves. Each of these lightweight UV protectors absorbs quickly, doesn't leave behind a sticky residue, and won't make your makeup pull a disappearing act. Just don't forget to reapply!
