You may say this article comes too late, in August, but you know you need to wear sunscreen all year long, right?

And since you do, we thought we’d let you in on some products we’ve tested and liked. You know there are millions of options out there and you really need to work to find the one that suits you best in terms of protection factor, texture, colour if it’s tinted. We’ve done the work, put in the effort and here’s what we came up with. It doesn’t mean they will be good for you, but at least they’re a starting point. In no particular order, the contenders are:

#Anthelios from La Roche Posay. It’s an invisible product, very light fluid, easy to apply, penetrates the skin instantly and it feels easy and glowy. It comes in SPF 30 and 50 or in a tinted version, which I have not tried. Very nice for day to day use, with or without makeup.

#Bioderma Photoderm. Don’t be fooled by this one – it really does the job to even and colour your skin, even if at first it doesn’t feel like it. It starts out a bit too glowy but it becomes matte in minutes and it really sticks to your face. It’s a great addition to the summer makeup kit and the SPF 50 really takes care of your skin. Add mascara and you’e done for the day. Also available in the invisible version.

#Madara Sun 30. If you’re looking for the most natural version of SPF, here’s your winner. We’ve talked about Madara before and it will surely make any of our lists. The formula is easy absorbed by the skin and it’s invisible with a twist. You’ll know what we mean when you start using it!

And since we’re talking about Madara here’s a product we both love – the Beach BB Sun 15. It gives you a nude, almost photo filter like look for your body and it has shimmery particles. Not many, just to make you glow from the inside out or reverse.

Let us know if you have any favourites, we’ll be happy to add them to the list!
