Remembering to apply sunscreen daily makes you feel pretty darn good about your skin-care routine -- and general adultness level. If you're applying SPF every day (or close to it), we suspect you also regularly contribute to your 401K and eat vegetables with most meals.

And then there are the rest of us, who mean to apply sunscreen every day, but forget to or feel put out by the textures and formulas that can be chalky, greasy, messy or breakout-inducing. We get it. Adulting is hard.

But before you despair, allow us to introduce you to a new class of sunscreens that make application and reapplication not only easy, but something you might even look forward to -- really. These are the mists, oils, powders and foams that are so sneaky about slipping in SPF that you wouldn't even know it's there.

Here, the best new sunscreens that don't feel like sunscreen.

According to the sunscreen forecast, there is a zero percent chance of white streaks with this antioxidant-rich, lightweight SPF oil. The formula, made with nourishing argan and meadowfoam seed oil, blends easily into skin for full protective coverage, and is moisturizing to boot. Use it in place of your daily body lotion or moisturizer. Worn under makeup, the oil provides a sheen that peeks through just enough to look dewy, not greasy.

With an SPF of 35 that protects against UVA and UVB rays, the protection level meets the requirements of most derms. It also contains vitamin E and broccoli and aloe leaf extracts to help protect against pollution and free radicals. With a citrusy, zingy scent, what's not to love?
