Best Sunscreens for an Australian Summer


Bid Adieu Summer Bummer!

Going out in the Aussie heat can be challenging especially when it comes to nourishing skins for all ages and types. So, we’re here with a list of the best sunscreens to make this summer more manageable for you and your skin: 


Ultra-Face Defense by Skin Ceuticals:

If you’re looking for a sunscreen that hydrates your face and goes along with your make-up then the Ultra Face Defense by Skin Ceuticals can be your go-to option. Offering a broad spectrum and SPF50+, this Adore Beauty product will give your face complete protection against the sun and premature aging. Now, you can improve your face’s appearance even during the brightest times of the day (PPU $55 for 30ML).


Sport Pump by Banana Boat:

For all things adventure – the Sport Pump by Banana Boat can be a great fit. Features such as water resistance and SPF50+ will help you maintain protection during prolonged hours of outdoor activity. Guess, who made swimming and chilling by the beach 10x easier. Can be found easily at Chemist Warehouse ($10 – $30 depending on size).


Mineral Sunscreen by Ocean Australia:

Finally, a sunscreen that has it all – Ocean Australia is cruelty-free, vegan, dermatologically tested, water-resistant, has SPF 50+, and broad-spectrum. Instead of the traditional sunscreens that absorb the UV rays before acting on them, the natural zinc protection in Ocean Australia deflects the rays before they can enter the skin. Face, Body, and Kids sets can be found for as little as $48.


Due to the stark sun exposure in Australia, it is recommended to use sunscreens with SPF30+ or higher on an everyday basis. Don’t miss out on your protective gear, not even on a cloudy day, as it is the rays that are harmful and not the strength of the sun!
