Just continue below to get a look at seven of our favorite clean sunscreens we think you need to try out this summer. Plus, they're all under $40!

Naked Sundays SPF 50+ Hydrating Glow Mist: $35

The Australian SPF brand Naked Sundays finally launched in the US, and we couldn't be happier! Out of all of their incredible products, the one we can't live without has to be the SPF 50+ Hydrating Glow Mist. Crafted with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, watermelon extract and Kakadu plum, this vitamin C-rich formula will leave your skin protected and looking perfectly glowy. Our favorite part about this has to be that it can be used over makeup, meaning you can easily reapply it throughout the day.

Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40: $36

There's a reason Supergoop! makes it onto pretty much every sunscreen story we work on, and that's because they're the best. If you've walked into a Sephora lately, we're willing to bet you've walked past their display, just to find that most of the products are already gone. That's because everyone loves their products! We're beyond obsessed with the Glowscreen SPF 40, which can be worn on its own or under makeup. It will leave you with a glowy, dewy finish.
