Supergoop! Mineral Sheerscreen SPF30 – £37 – 45ml

While many of us often use body sunscreen on our face (note: it’s always better to use some sun protection over nothing), using one designed for the face can help to protect our delicate skin from irritation and breakouts.

Supergoop! has a cult following for good reason. Its Mineral Sheerscreen SPF30 is well worth putting in your holiday handbag.

The 100% mineral, sheer skin protector provides SPF 30 protection while helping to filter blue light and prep skin for makeup.
