Sun Care: Team Member-Approved!

With so many sunscreens out there, it can be hard to know what’s best for you. Here, Pharmaca Team Members put our sunscreens to the test—from days at the pool to long bike rides. Read more about the sun care they’re loving.

Juice-Beauy-Tinted-Moisturizer I’ve been very happy with Juice Beauty’s Tinted Moisturizer. The slight tint keeps me from that white glow and having to rub in so much, and the slight citrus fragrance is nice as well.


Supergoop-Sunscreen-Mist I’m loving Supergoop—I use the Lip Balm with SPF 30, and the Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C SPF 50. I just took it on a several-day trip to a music festival…we stood outside in the sun for hours and it offered great coverage! It’s not sticky and it has a nice scent, so even the boys used it.


Juice-Beauty-Sport-SPF-30 I’ve been using the Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sport Moisturizer as a daily sunscreen for my face, and all over if I’m going out running. I like the way it smells and, compared to other sport sunscreens, it rubs in really well. I never worry that I am going to end up with a white face! And I didn’t end up with any sunburn.

Coola-Pina-Colada-Sunscreen I have been using the Coola Pina Colada Sport Sunscreen Spray. It’s an SPF 35 and so easy to use! My kids love getting sprayed and then rubbing it in themselves (which makes my life a lot easier). The spray also makes it very easy to reapply. We keep it in our pool bag for our days at the YMCA!


Alba-Hawaiian-Aloe-Vera-Sunscreen When I go out road cycling, I use Alba Hawaiian’s Soothing Aloe Vera SPF 30. It is refreshingly light and doesn’t make me break out. Plus, I am not getting a wicked biker tan…very nice!


Kiss-My-Face-Sport-Spray I fell in love with Kiss My Face SPF 50 Sport Spray last summer and now I use it every time I go out! I even used it on a weekend rafting trip a few weeks ago (including 8 hours on the water) and didn’t get burned at all. Plus it smells coconutty and delicious!


Sanitas-Solar-Block I love Sanitas’ reputation as a skin care brand–I use their Solar Block. It’s a mineral sunscreen so it provides the best protection, but goes on clean and doesn’t leave any residue. I wear it every day under makeup—a must in a place like Colorado where we see so much sun!
