If you’re shopping for zinc-oxide-based sunscreen, look for at least 10% of the active ingredient, says Kunal Malik, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at Spring Street Dermatology in New York City. At 12%, this lightweight formula delivers. And it’s also recommended by Marisa Garshick, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at MDCS Dermatology in NYC, who says it also contains iron oxide, antioxidants, and a patented Enviroscreen technology to protect against pretty much everything: UVA and UVB, blue light, pollution, and infrared radiation.

It also boasts an antioxidant-rich ingredient list that makes it a great hydrating pick for anyone with dry skin. And if you’re looking for some coverage, you’ve come to the right place. This sunscreen has a buildable matte finish, available in four shades.

Glamour staff writer Hanna Lustig uses the formula every day. “The formula is hydrating enough to glide over dry patches and problem areas, but within minutes it dries down to a semi-matte finish with surprisingly substantial coverage.” Hear that oily skin girlies? This one is for you, too.

Active ingredient: Antioxidants, iron oxide, zinc oxide / SPF: 50 / Water-resistant: Yes, up to 40 minutes / Size: 1.8 oz.

  • What we love: Universal tint; lightweight; water- and sweat-resistant
