If you've been skipping SPF mainly because of the greasy feeling it tends to leave behind, here's a solution: Look for water- or gel-based formulas! Compared to regular sunblocks, these lightweight formulas are fast-absorbing, so they dry down to a matte, non-sticky finish.
Check out our list of matte sunscreens below:
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++
This highly-raved sunscreen's watery-gel formula feels more like a hydrating serum than a sticky sunscreen. It absorbs quickly, and it leaves the skin feeling nourished too, thanks to the hyaluronic acid it contains.
