The Top 5
Destino Approved Facial SPFs
Destino Approved Facial SPFs
Sunscreen is the one product you’re sure to find us wearing every single day of the year, rain or shine: it’s one of the most powerful tools at our disposal to protect our skin from sun damage, and so unsurprisingly a bedrock of our routine. Here, some of our favourite SPFs that get our tick of approval.
Best For Sun Protection With Skin Care Benefits: Everyday Humans

We love a product that does double duty, which is why we rate this SPF from Everyday Humans so highly. It’s a broad spectrum SPF 30, but packed with a number of skin care super ingredients: hyaluronic acid for deep hydration, as well as spinach and green tea extracts for an extra layer of antioxidant protection against free radicals. It absorbs into the skin effortlessly with no annoying pilling, and is light and comfortable to wear – even in the hottest, most humid weather.

Best For If You Want A Moisturiser With SPF Protection: Fenty Skin

This sunscreen-moisturiser hybrid from Rihanna’s acclaimed skin care range is perfect if you prefer a streamlined routine in the mornings to a more elaborate, multi-step affair. With broad spectrum SPF 30, it moisturises and protects from sun damage in one, while skin-brightening niacinamide improves skin evenness and pigmentation. It leaves zero white cast, making it a great choice for all skin tones. Plus it’s refillable, which cuts down on plastic, and as the refill is a few pounds cheaper, it will save you some money, too.

Best For Hydrating and Illuminating: Ultra Violette

We’ll always have a soft spot for a brand that specialises in just one thing and then does it really, really well. Like Ultra Violette, who offer a considered edit of sunscreens catering to different skin types and preferences – whether you want a hydrating or mattifying finish, or an SPF that provides tinted coverage. If you favour sun protection with a dash of glow, their bestseller Queen Screen is sure to please: a hydrating yet lightweight SPF (it’s more of a serum than a traditional cream) that leaves skin looking dewy and feeling perfectly primed for make-up.

Best For SPF With Some Extra Glow: Alpha-H

Alpha-H’s SPF sunscreen has a light tint that diffuses out to an all-over sheer glow once blended into the skin. But if you’re more comfortable with a sunscreen without a tint, we have also been known to use this on top of our regular SPF: even the most diligent of us can accidentally skip areas when applying our sunscreen, so layering products with SPF can help to ensure the whole face is protected. Used in this way, it doubles as an illuminating primer that imparts a pretty, healthy glow.

Best For Those That Don’t Like Sunscreen: La Roche-Posay

If you’re convinced you’ve never found a sunscreen that you can put up with wearing, we’d urge you to reconsider your stance with this cult classic. La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios is the sunscreen that can convert the most ardent SPF loathers – trust us, we’ve seen it happen on multiple occasions. The Anthelios line comprises a number of finishes and formats, but the most popular Invisible Fluid arguably has the most universal appeal: it’s lightweight and doesn’t pill or feels greasy, so it will suit those with oily skins, too. In short, it unfailingly provides everything we could want from our SPF. You’ll soon see why we’ve been repeat-buying it for years.
