Want to know the surest way you'll apply SPF every single day like it ain't no thing? If you actually like the formulation. Nothing's worse than a streaky, goopy, greasy mess, but the sunscreens in this roundup are so sheer that you won't even know they're protecting your skin.

Since sunscreen is actually the only thing Supergoop makes, you know it's really good at it. This barely-there option is a broad-spectrum SPF 40 formulation that truly lives up to its name. It's a completely translucent formulation that glides onto skin and leaves zero cast, no matter your complexion. The product works really well under makeup — similar to a primer — though it can also be worn alone.

Dry skin types — and anyone who wants to up their glow game — will love this new broad-spectrum SPF-infused primer oil. It's a dry oil, which means it's highly moisturizing but soaks into the skin quickly instead of sitting on top. You can apply it with a sponge or your fingers.

MyChelle's Sun Shield is ideal for those who prefer 100 percent mineral sunscreen formulations over chemical versions. It's a broad-spectrum formulation with SPF 50 that boasts a sheer, lightweight texture that glides easily onto skin. And because it also includes bentonite clay, it also helps damper oil and shine. It also comes in a tinted version if you prefer.
