When it comes to sunscreen, there are two universal truths. The first is that it’s intrinsic to any skincare routine. (Please, please, please practice safe sun, people!) The second is that you don’t have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to get a quality formula. After all, effective doesn’t mean expensive.

Just because it comes from the drugstore doesn’t mean it will clog your pores, leave a white cast on your complexion, or do any of the other dreaded things that we often associate with bad sunscreen. In fact, for some drugstore sunscreen formulas, quite the opposite is true. There are sheer formulas, noncomedogenic formulas, two-in-one moisturizing formulas, and more. You just have to know which ones rise above the rest, and that’s exactly what I’m here for. Keep scrolling to see the 15 best drugstore face sunscreens, according to editors and reviews.
