We normally lean toward sunscreen creams for their proven protection, but this spray-on exceeded our expectations. “Our guides warned us about the fierce Tasmanian rays, but as long as I was diligent and applied regularly, I didn’t get so much as blushed all week,” reports one user.

Testers also liked the lack of oiliness because it “didn’t make me feel like I was clogging up my skin every day.” The water- and sweat-resistant SPF 30 spray provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, and it never ran into testers’ eyes, even in hot, humid conditions. Bonus: There’s also a fragrance-free option, ideal for those with sensitive skin. $7/1 oz. bottle, $19/4 oz. bottle; kinesys.com
