21 Best Moisturizers With SPF of 2021 – Editor Reviews

Here’s the lowdown on how to subscribe to Allure’s print edition for more beauty routines, recommendations, and features.

Say it with us: “I will apply sunscreen every single day, just like mom and Allure taught me.” OK, now here’s how you follow through and actually do it. (Spoiler: It’s way easier than you think). Plenty of daily moisturizers seamlessly slip sun protection into your skin-care routine because there’s SPF already in the formula. Even better, they do it without compromising texture, scent, or effectiveness.

The concept behind these multitasking wonders is pretty straightforward. They pull double-duty, pumping skin full of moisture (without any chalky, white cast) while protecting it from the sun’s harmful UV rays — and on a larger scale, guarding against skin cancer. Just note, as with any other sunscreen, you still need to reapply these throughout the day — every two hours, to be specific — in order to stay protected. (Oh, and wearing sunscreen indoors is also non-negotiable.) 

“Hybrid skin-care products have gained popularity recently as consumers are trying to simplify their skin-care routines,” Y. Claire Chang, a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist at Union Square Laser Dermatology in New York City, tells Allure. “SPF-infused moisturizers are a direct result of the desire to do more with less.” She also reassures us that just because there’s an added benefit of broad-spectrum sun protection, does not mean these moisturizers are thicker in texture or pore-clogging. What’s more: Chang confirms SPF-infused moisturizers are “regulated and tested by the same Food and Drug Administration (FDA) procedures as sunscreens,” so they’re not more diluted in regards to protection.

With any potential concerns assuaged, a few more housekeeping rules are still worth going over. Chang reminds us that “most adults need about one ounce of sunscreen (a shot glass full) to fully cover the body.” For your face and neck, Chang says that equates to about 0.3 teaspoons or the size of two nickels. And don’t forget commonly-missed areas, like your eyelids, ears, and chest.  

Below are 21 of our favorite formulas, which include plenty of dermatologist-approved picks for you to peruse and shop. Now, go forth, and practice safe skin care.
