Need Sunscreen? Here Are The Ones Consumer Reports Likes

It’s Memorial Day! There is sunshine out my window, and it’s calling me to come bathe in it! But before I go get arrested for public nudity in the park, I’m going to apply some decent sunscreen that blocks both UVB rays and UVA rays. Consumer Reports tested sunscreens recently and says these are the top 4 products in terms of effectiveness. All of them are sprays, and fortunately the top scorer is also the second cheapest in the entire test group.

  • Up & Up Sport Continuous SPF 30, by Target. It is administered by spray and costs $0.88 per ounce.
  • Walgreens Sport Continuous SPF 50. Also a spray. Cost, $1.33 per ounce.
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance Continuous SPF 30. Spray. Cost, $1.60 per ounce.
  • Aveeno Continuous Protection SPF 50. Spray. Cost, $2 an ounce.
