Body sunscreens have come a long way since the days of greasy, sticky lotions that stained your clothes and never seemed to sink in.

The good news? The SPF world's now your oyster – with lotions, oils and even mousses that make it easier than ever to apply (and reapply) daily. In the spirit of keeping protected all summer (and autumn, winter and spring), we rounded up the best body sunscreens and formulas to add to your (beach) bag!


A lotion that feels good to swipe on

In case you missed it, SPF lotions and creams no longer need to feel oily and sticky. MECCA COSMETICA's To Save Body SPF50+ Hydrating Sunscreen is a weightless, non-greasy, water-resistant formula that dries fast and hydrates the skin all over.


A mist to make all-over coverage easier

For those who prefer an SPF spray (to easily make sure every inch of you is protected!), the Naked Sundays SPF50+ Glow Body Mist is the way to go. The formula is transparent, non-sticky and contains nourishing ingredients like Kakadu plum and watermelon extract, so it's the best way to stay protected and hydrated, and reapply your SPF, this summer.


An oil that will have you glowing top to toe

If you love body oils for all their skin-glimmering properties, you'll want to get Frank Body's SPF30 The Better Oil in your beach bag. Formulated with sweet almond oil, jojoba and mica for a hint of shimmer, plus SPF30, spray it on to top up your glow and protection.


A mousse so lightweight, it feels like nothing at all

Ever tried an SPF mousse? MECCA COSMETICA's luxuriously whipped To Save Body SPF30 Radiant Sun Mousse is a game-changer. The airy texture is featherlight, non-greasy and imparts a subtle reflective radiance, plus SPF30 protection. This isn't the kind of SPF you need to sit there rubbing in for ages – it smooths on and dries down quickly.


A tint for sunkissed skin, minus the sun

We all know sun tanning is dangerous and damaging to your skin – so Naked Sundays created the Golden Glow Body Sunscreen SPF50 to keep you both protected and glowing this summer. This one contains a blend of antioxidants and ultra-fine shimmer, plus a subtle tint – perfect for summer events when you need a little something extra
