Pacifica Sea & C Sheer Sunscreen Spray SPF 30: $16

There's just something about spray-on sunscreen that makes life so much more manageable. When you're on your way to having fun in the sun, the last thing you want is to spend forever applying sunscreen. That's why we love this product (which goes on sheer) from Pacifica, which is made with good-for-your-skin ingredients such as vitamin C and marine extracts.

CLEARSTEM Skincare SUNNYSIDE Brush On Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30: $38.50

If you're looking for more of an on-the-go sunscreen situation, this brush-on product from CLEARSTEM SKINCARE might be just the fit. You can wear it on its own or over your makeup—which we love because we always forget to put sunscreen on our faces until after we've finished doing our makeup. If you have acne-prone skin, this will work like an absolute charm.
