Browsing Hampton Sun

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Time to get your sunscreen on! Don’t forget the season’s most important product! And yes, I say this with exclamation points and many of them!! I’m not perfect and I do forget so I recommend putting any you have front and center so it will become part of your daily beauty routine. And some of the below ones are the continuous mist kind that can be sprayed at any angle (all should be in this form!).

And also note that sunscreens do expire so may I recommend some new ones?


From L to R:


GOCLEAR Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 12 ($33/1.7oz @ – made specifically for the face, this oil-free UVA/UVB cream contains botanical extracts and particularly suited for those with blemish-prone skin.


COPPERTONE Continuous Sunblock Spray, SPF 30 ($9.99/6oz @  - these Continuous Spray sunscreens are some of my favorites as they are no rub and come out and apply totally clear. Rarely do I ever mention a product twice on the site but these are so great and come at a great price, that I have to.


OSCAR BLANDI Capri Sun-Shield Spray ($20/8oz @ – another product under the category of you-spent-all-that-money-on-your-hair-color-now-make-it-last. The sun can really wreak havoc on strands, so protect them.


HAMPTON SUN Continue Mist Sunscreen SPF 55 ($32/5oz @ and – I’ve been on the hunt for non-whitening-for-15-minute one for my face and this one is good for face and body and it’s totally clear!
