Sunplay Skin Aqua Sarfit UV Mist SPF50+/ PA++++ (fragrancefree), $9.90.
We can’t deny the convenience of sunscreen mists. We love this sweat- and water-resistant one from Sunplay that's also fragrance-free. Meant for both the face and body, it has a matte finish, and is formulated with hyaluronic acid and collagen to keep the skin hydrated all day.
