#8 Sun Bum Original Moisturizing Sunscreen
Adequate skin protection against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays is critically important in having healthy skin. Sun Bum’s broad-spectrum sunscreen nurtures and moisturizes skin while providing this needed protection.
This is one sunscreen that I feel good about buying, thanks to the cruelty-free method of production. I don’t see any reason to use any cosmetic product that has been tested on animals, and Sun Bum promises that they are their own (and only) testing subjects.
Enriched with vitamin E and antioxidants to protect skin from free radicals, this relatively non-greasy formula makes my skin feel great while banishing the burn of summer.
