Tons of great new sunscreen sprays and lotions out this year!  So many to try, but here are a few that I'm using and loving!

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion for Face:  Light enough to use everyday, yet powerful and water resistant enough for water sports and afternoon hikes.  If you're looking to buy one sunscreen to get you thru the summer, go for this one!  SPF 60, broad spectrum protection, no sticky film and water and perspiration resistant.

Willa Skincare SPF 30 Tinted Face Protection:  A new product marketed to tweens, and it's really good!  My daughter loves it, not to mention the name!  It's really lightweight, has a subtle tint that works with any complexion and has a matte finish, perfect for oily prepubescent skin.  Mineral based, paraben and sulfate free.

L'Oreal Paris Invisible Protect Sheer Spray 50+: While I'm still not a fan of sprays for kids, this is perfect for men or for quick touch-ups at the beach or pool.  It really is crystal clear and sprays in a fine, even mist.  Contains antioxidants like Vitamin E and grape seed that enhance the effectiveness of the sunscreen.
