In case you’re wondering, these are Sephora’s top-rated sunscreens under $50.

If you’re the kind of shopper who religiously reads customer reviews and researches any product before deciding to click “add to cart”, then you’ve come to the right place.
When it comes to beauty products, especially skincare, what works for some people may not work for you. For example, is a celebrity-endorsed product just watered-down marketing? Will a sunscreen that works for a lighter complexion still work the same on a darker complexion? So many questions! Still, if one of your 2022 resolutions was to wear more SPF in the New Year (a really good idea!), then you need to invest in sunscreen that’s both good for your skin and good for your wallet.
Lucky for you, I’ve taken the liberty of researching the top-rated sunscreens at Sephora that customers love and buy over and over again. But all products still had to meet certain criteria, including having more than 100 reviews to ensure they were well-reviewed and tested by multiple buyers. Oh, and they had to be under $50. We’re trying to encourage repeat wear of SPF here, folks! Ideally, you buy them again and again the minute the bottle is empty.
Take care of your delicate skin and shop Sephora’s top-rated, customer-approved sunscreens below. (FYI: Customer reviews have been slightly edited for clarity and punctuation, but they are all 100% real!)
1. Shiseido Clear Sunscreen Stick SPF 50+, $29
Real customer review: “An amazing sunscreen that you can reapply throughout the day without touching your face. It gives you a nice glowing effect. PS Don’t get it near your eye area as it will irritate your eyes.
2. innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36. $15
Real customer review: “This SPF is wonderful, super light and smells great. Great for dark skin!!!”
3. Jack Black Sun Guard Oil-Free Sunscreen Water Resistant SPF 45. $21
Real customer review: “Why had I never heard of this before?” Probably because it is a “masculine” skin care product. How stupid that such labels can deprive us of this amazing sunscreen. As a brown-skinned woman, I can attest to the fact that this leaves ZERO white plaster! (VERY IMPORTANT). It’s non-greasy and sinks into my skin instantly. I would even say it’s slightly mattifying for me as I have oily skin these days, and this sunscreen kept me looking pretty matte even without makeup on! It doesn’t dry out at all, which is also a huge plus! ALSO, SO MUCH FOR YOUR BUCK!”
4. COOLA Full Spectrum 360º Refreshing Water Cream Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 50. $46
Real customer review: “I really like this sun protection product. I have dry skin in the winter and normal/combination skin in the summer. Living in Arkansas, our summers here are like a damp washcloth, and I’m sensitive to the heaviness in my skin. I haven’t had a problem so far and I use it daily. A high SPF is a great additional factor, as 30 makes no difference here. I will definitely continue to use it.
5. Sunday Riley Light Hearted Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Daily Face Sunscreen, $35
Real customer review: “The best everyday FPS I’ve ever used. I originally bought a Super Goop chemical sunscreen to which my skin had a terrible reaction. I went to return it and was suggested Sunday Riley. IT’S NOT WONDERFUL! It wears very well under makeup. It is great on my sensitive skin. It is tinted pink so the white cast is minimal (I have fair to medium skin tone). All in all, just a great product that is now a staple in my daily routine.
6. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+, $49
Real customer review: “I’m obsessed with it! I have very fair and sensitive skin, so SPF is something I take very seriously. This formula is great. It has a very sweet smell and a pleasant texture. It is a very flexible formula that spreads very gently on your skin. It dries matte and silky and clear!! It’s a great layer under makeup, and my makeup is still able to stay put.
