Best Fragrance-Free Sunscreen for Acne
EltaMD UV Clear Facial Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
If you’ve got sensitive, acne-prone skin, you absolutely need this fragrance-free sunscreen in your life. It’s super lightweight (read: not sticky or greasy), and it’s spiked with sodium hyaluronate (to moisturize) and lactic acid (to gently exfoliate). It’s a little bit pricey, yes, but the silky texture and MVP ingredients make it worth your coins.
Best Fragrance-Free Body Sunscreen
Coola Mineral Body Sunscreen Fragrance-Free
No need to waste your precious little face sunscreen on your body—this fragrance-free SPF is made with all-over coverage in mind. Smooth it all over your skin and the antioxidant-rich formula will keep your body soft, hydrated, and nice and protected from the sun. P.S. This bb is also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, so it’s a great pick for the beach or pool.
Best Fragrance-Free Sunscreen for Deep Skin Tones
Black Girl Sunscreen Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
PSA: This fragrance-free sunscreen makes white casts a thing of the past. It’s formulated specifically for deeper skin tones, and it goes on—and stays on!—totally sheer while feeling super lightweight and non-chalky. And thanks to ingredients like avocado and jojoba oils, it’s super hydrating too.
Best Fragrance-Free Sunscreen Stick
Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen Stick
TBH, I’ve always been a fan of stick sunscreens—they’re just so easy to throw in your bag and bring on the go—and this fragrance-free option is no exception. My favorite thing about this one? Other than a very solid SPF 50 protection, it’s also got a hefty dose of vitamin E to deeply hydrate your skin and to help prevent sun damage.
Best Fragrance-Free Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin
Vanicream Sunscreen Sport SPF 35
Struggling with your super-sensitive skin? Yeah, you need this gentle-AF sunscreen from Vanicream. Not only is it fragrance-free, but it’s also formulated without dyes, lanolin, parabens, and other irritating ingredients. And since it’s sweat- and water-resistant, you don’t need to worry about it sliding off your face. Translation: You’ll get the safest, most gentle sun protection with this pick.
Best Drugstore Fragrance-Free Sunscreen
Aveeno Positively Mineral Sensitive Skin Daily Sunscreen Lotion
The drugstore is one of my favorite places to shop for affordable sunscreens—even when I’m looking for fragrance-free formulas. This one is a super reasonable $10, but it’s still got SPF 50 protection, gentle zinc oxide, and hydrating and soothing ingredients like vitamin E and oats.
Best Lightweight Fragrance-Free Sunscreen
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra Light Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 60
One of the biggest complaints I hear about sunscreen is that it’s too heavy or sticky, but this fragrance-free SPF is basically as lightweight as they come. It’s got a milky texture that dries down into a matte (not tight!) finish with SPF 60 protection. TL;DR: It’s kinda like you aren’t wearing sunscreen at all with this one.
Best Fragrance-Free Spray Sunscreen
Babo Botanicals Sheer Non-Nano Zinc Continuous Spray SPF 30 Fragrance Free Mineral Sunscreen
NGL, this fragrance-free sunscreen needs a spot in your beach or pool bag this season. The spray-on applicator makes it v easy to touch up throughout the day, and it leaves your skin with a lightweight, non-drying finish (ty, sunflower seed oil).
Best Tinted Fragrance-Free Sunscreen
Australian Gold Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50
If you’re looking to protect yourself from the sun and do a little color-correcting, you can’t go wrong with this tinted fragrance-free sunscreen. The matte finish means you won’t have to worry about any greasy or shiny residues, but it’s still got hydrators (like shea butter) to keep your skin from drying out.
Best Fragrance-Free Sunscreen for Oily Skin
Cerave Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30
Fact: Oily skin requires a lightweight yet super-hydrating sunscreen, and this drugstore pick fits the damn bill. The brand’s cult-favorite formula (which is packed with moisturizing ceramides and hyaluronic acid) will keep your skin protected from UV rays without leaving it extra shiny (or worse—totally dried out).
