Whether it’s peak summer or any other time of the year, SPF should be a permanent fixture in your daily routine. It’s the only product that shields your skin from a whole plethora of damage: UV rays, collagen breakdown, skin cancer, hyper-pigmentation, and pretty much everything else that come with those. Of course, not all sunblocks are made equal. We’ve all had our fair share of greasy, heavy SPFs, but nowadays, there’s no shortage of lightweight formulas more fit for our weather.

So, we rounded up the best ones for you! For all summer-related (or not) purposes, here are our 6 comfortable SPFs that feel like next to nothing on the skin.

1. Lauren & Co. Bare Skin Facial Sun Mist with SPF 70 (50ml), now on sale at P209 (limited time only) A fave among us girls here at BeautyMNL HQ, this super light sun mist is one of our favorite local discoveries. It’s got everything you could want in a sunblock: a non-greasy consistency, a high SPF level of SPF 70, no white cast, and hassle-free application. On top of that, you can even use it as a makeup setting spray!

2. Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA++++, P488 Now, here’s one formula that needs no introduction. This cult-face Japanese sunscreen has been a mainstay in most of our routines for years. Why? For one, it was one of the first SPF products to prove that sunblock didn’t have to be heavy or greasy. With a watery consistency, it sets into the skin almost immediately, and feels like nothing once it dries down. Even though we’ve discovered many similar formulas since then, we’ll love this one forever.

3. ACWELL Aqua Capsule Sun Control Gel SPF 35/PA++, now on sale at P1,105 (limited time only) This Korean brand is known for its brightening, acne-fighting formulas and its sunblock is just as suitable for troublesome skin. The gel texture never feels greasy, even under extreme tropical weather. Plus, its made with soothing peony and mint extracts, which cool the skin and relieve inflammation. Perfect for daily use!

4. Face Republic Super Screen Sun Gel SPF 50+ (50ml), P499 Next up is a newbie and a goodie! Made with SPF 50, this advanced formula effectively provides broad spectrum protection—meaning it filters out both UVA and UVB rays. It also contains anti-bacterial eucalyptus extract to keep the skin cool and calm when exposed to harsh heat. Thanks to its grease-free format, its the perfect summer staple especially for acne-prone skin types.
