The Best Sunscreen for Oily Skin

While it's a fact everyone should have a good facial sunscreen in their skincare routine come rain or shine, wearing a daily SPF while trying to keep blemishes and oily skin at bay can be a challenge, to say the least.

But thankfully we are seeing more and more targeted facial sunscreens for different skincare concerns hitting the shelves. Which is why I wanted to share my own personal favourites with you that are perfect for oily/combination skin types.
 Although my favorite facial SPF's picks are great for oily skin they also work just as well on normal skin too, especially if you want a lightweight sunscreen that will sit under makeup or simply feel grease-free on the skin.

Glossier Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen + SPF 30
£20.00/30ml Glossier HERE
Described as sunscreen for people that hate wearing sunscreen, this for me is basically the millennial version of a facial SPF being simple yet effective. With a clear watergel formula dispensed from a handy pump this is as light as it gets for a sunscreen and truly works well on all skin types, especially those that are oily prone, feeling weightless on the skin and sitting perfectly, if not invisibly, under makeup. The formula also feels breathable and has quite a nice scent to it, not your typical sunscreen smell but a slight orange one that is subtle yet there. Simply a perfect sunscreen with zero white cast and ideal for all skins!

NIOD Survival 30
£25.00/30ml Cult Beauty HERE  
If you are looking for a sophisticated sunscreen that caters to much more than UVA protection then look no further. NIOD is a personal favourite of mine as I find their skincare to be beyond advanced and always delivering on what they promise. Unlike most sunscreens this comse in a glass bottle with a pipette which for me is it's only downfall as it's neither travel-friendly or that easy to use, due to the formula not really dropping from the pipette as I'd hope it would. However, the texture and application of Survival 30 makes up for any packaging issues! While feeling quite thick this mineral sunscreen absorbs into the skin with ease feeling slightly powdery for a few seconds and then disappearing entirely. While it does have it's minor faults and may not be suitable for darker skin tones (it has a slight oatmeal tint to it) this is my preferred sunscreen as it feels naked on the skin and protects from both UVA and UVB rays along with oxygen radicals, pollution, smog, stress, infrared and blue light. If you are a fellow sunscreen lover then this is worth trying!

The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essense SPF 50
£17.00/40ml The Body Shop HERE  
If there was a single facial sunscreen I'd recommend to most it would be this Korean inspired offering from The Body Shop. This multi-protection sunscreen is not only high in SPF but one of the lightest formulas I've come across feeling more like a milk than anything else, soaking into the skin a dream leaving it feeling grease-free and fresh and perfecly prepped as a base for makeup. My only slight gripe with this product would be that it does have a high alcohol content which can even be detected from its scent, however, only dry & sensitive skin types would possibly want to stay clear, but other than that this is one amazing SPF product.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield Hydrating Lotion SPF 25
£12.99/50ml Amazon HERE or Tesco or Waitrose supermarkets 
Lastly, I wanted to give a mention to more of a skincare/SPF hybrid that I'm really adoring right now for everyday use when it's not overly sunny. The recent addition to the Hydro-Boost range while still hydrating offers a little less but still in a light cooling formula that feels much more like a moisturiser than sunscreen. So you can expect zero residue and simply a nicely hydrating formula ideal for oily to normal skin. If you are looking to incorporate a level of sun protection into your skincare routine without adding a separate product then this is certainly the one to go for!

Other brands that do facial sunscreen well especially for oily skin include La Roche Posay, Bioderma, Benefit, Sunsense and Vichy
