If you've been avoiding SPF because of the greasy finish it tends to leave behind, look for water-based formulas! Unlike regular sunblocks, this lightweight formula is fast-absorbing, so they dry down to a nice matte finish. Ahead, we rounded up a couple of lightweight sunscreens worth trying out!
1. Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++
