    Hi, folks! Never mind that we are less than two weeks away from spring! You should be wearing sunscreen all year, whether you're indoors and/or outdoors (see #13 in this skincare mistakes post) and that's nonnegotiable.

    So we, shopping-saavy BuzzFeed staffers, rounded up some of our ~personal~ faves for you to check out and hopefully love just as much as we do:

    1. Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50 disappears into your skin pretty much instantly for sun protection that doesn't actually feel like it's there. Instead it feels like, just as its name implies, an essence that your skin immediately soaks up with zero weight, heaviness, or white cast.

    2. CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM SPF 30 is not only a two-fer product (yay, hydration *and* protection!), but it's truly as dependable as it gets. Seriously, it's oil-free, fragrance-free, absorbs quickly, and contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides to boot!

    3. Ok, buckle in, folks. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 color corrects, reduces redness/irritation, supports your skin's moisture barrier, and protects skin from environmental aggressors (we loooove centella asiatica around these parts). Congrats, you've covered literally all of your bases! No wonder it's a cult fave.

    4. Neutrogena Bright Boost Moisturizer + SPF 30 is faaaabulous for those rushed mornings when I need a little multitasking miracle to get me out the door. It absorbs so quickly, leaves my skin hydrated *and* even a teensy bit brighter than before. You can't even see it 0.5 seconds after it's rubbed in — like, COME THROUGH!

    5. Supergoop! Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist SPF 50 goes on cleanly, coolly, thinly, easily, and breezily. I mean, it even works well when applied to wet skin — which is no small feat. And it contains a healthy dose of vitamin C to give skin a ~radiant~ appearance and offer protection against free radicals.

    6. Glossier Invisible Shield SPF 35 has a transparent water-gel and serum-like consistency that sinks into skin (thanks to ~active microcapsules~ that contain the UVA/UVB filters) without leaving any sort of white cast, grease, or dreaded pilling madness if you choose to put base makeup over it. And that pump is so clean 'n' easy to use, y'all.

    7. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer SPF 30 is a hydrating (but not *too* thick) treat for sore eyes — I mean, dry skin. It also doesn't dare to flame up rosacea, so you know it's an amazing option for sensitive skin.

    8. Papa Recipe Honey Moist Sun Essence SPF 50 feels barely there (like a super lightweight moisturizer) and soothing from the very first touch (hello, honey and propolis extract!) and gives your skin a healthy glow, while arming your face with SPF 50+, never leaves a white cast, and sits beautifully under makeup.

    9. Tatcha Silken Pore-Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 35 is truly worth the splurge if you want to avoid getting sunburnt 👏 at 👏 all 👏 costs, want a sunscreen that's also packed with skincare benefits, and are repulsed by greasy residue.

    10. Supergoop! Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40 is a lightweight mineral sunscreen that helps ~blur~ the appearance of pores, so it's perfect to wear under makeup (or just on its own!). And it's even water resistant up to 40 minutes! What can't it do, tbh?

    11. Olay Complete UV365 Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 conditions skin with vitamins C, E, B3 (aka niacinamide, which helps with surface skin cell turnover and regeneration), and B5 (fights pollution). It's such a staple for normal skin types that you might wear it for years and years to come!

    Stay safe out there!
