A Bunch of Sunscreens We Love Are on Sale at Dermstore Right Now

It’s the first day of summer, and Dermstore is celebrating with a sale on sunscreens and summery “sun care” products — many that we love and have written about here and at the Cut. We’ve included some of the options we think are most worth checking out now that they’re up to 20 percent off. Just keep in mind the sale only goes through June 27 (with the code “SUNFUN”).

MD SolarSciences Mineral Creme SPF 50 Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB
$24 at Dermstore

You may have read up on this new study which says the higher the SPF, the better for protecting yourself against sun-induced skin damage. So a high-SPF mineral sunscreen like this one (which is also a hit on Amazon) would make a good investment this summer. We own it ourselves and can vouch for its smooth, nongreasy texture and matte-ifying effect that’s ideal for sliding on under makeup.

Cotz Sensitive SPF 40 Sunscreen
$18 at Dermstore

If you’re not looking to spend more than $20 on a sunscreen this summer, here’s an option the good shoppers at Amazon pointed out as one of the best oil-free mineral options out there. “It is scent-free, nongreasy, additive-free, doesn’t sting, and works extremely well under my foundation and other makeup,” one reviewer said.

Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-on Shield SPF 50
$52 at Dermstore

This Rio Viera-Newton favorite is technically not included in the sale, but thankfully it’s already 20 percent off right now anyway. The cool thing about this sunscreen is that it’s a brush-on powder, so it’s spill-proof if you choose to stock it in your purse or carry-on.

Coola Mineral Sport SPF 50 Organic Sunscreen
$21 at Dermstore

Stick sunscreens are less likely to run into your eyes (the stinging! The burning!), dermatologists have told us, so we might also suggest this sport Coola stick sunscreen, which we love for its high SPF protection and water resistance.

Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Oil-Free Matte SPF 30
$42 at Dermstore

Writer Hannah Morrill suggested this oil-free Dermalogica sunscreen for acne-prone skin, since its “entirely matte formulation feels cool and untacky on the skin, absorbs quickly, and works almost like a primer under makeup.” It’s already on sale, so there’s no code necessary.

Unsun Mineral Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30
$23 at Dermstore

Fun fact: Frank Ocean’s mom, Katonya Breaux, created this tinted mineral sunscreen with people of color in mind, to help them avoid looking ashy. It’s won over editor Alexis Swerdloff, who says it works for even her very pale skin tone.

MDSolarSciences Daily Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
$54 at Dermstore

If you just want to kill two birds with one stone, here’s a moisturizer with SPF 30 from MDSolarSciences that writer Lori Keong loves for its pump dispenser, creamy and hydrating finish, and “zillion skin-friendly ingredients”: we counted plumping ceramides, soothing aloe vera, antioxidants, and brightening vitamin C among them.

Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen
$13 at Dermstore

And here’s an SPF 30 option that Cut writer Jessica Prince Erlich described as the best-smelling spray-on sunscreen for its “addictive tropical scent.” She adds that “it takes a few seconds to dry, but there’s really no rubbing required.”

MD SolarSciences Mineral Tinted Creme SPF 30 Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB Sunscreen
$26 at Dermstore

Should you just want something light for your face (without looking like a greaseball), the Cut’s Ashley Weatherford recommended this tinted SPF 30 sunscreen as the perfect solution for oily skin. “Tinted and fast-absorbing, this lightweight sunscreen dries to a matte finish. You can trust me — and my typically shiny forehead — on this.”

Nia 24 Sun Prevention 100 Percent Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30
$39 at Dermstore

And for those with super dry skin (even in summer), Weatherford says while this Nia’s SPF 30 lotion isn’t the most blendable, “it is without a doubt the most hydrating option” for face.

Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse
$14 at Dermstore

This isn’t SPF, but since there were some self-tanners included in this sale, we thought we’d let you know that Kim Kardashian’s favorite subtle sunless tanner from Vita Liberata is in the mix.

James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm
$25 at Dermstore

Oh, and this James Read tanning balm that Erlich considers one of the best self-tanners for the body: “The clear glossy sheen ensures you don’t miss a spot … And the deeply moisturizing blend left my skin with a supple glow that’s usually reserved for vacation.”
