As states reopen, you might be emerging from quarantine for some much-needed vitamin D, and applying the best moisturizer with SPF is one step you don’t want to skip. Even if you’re wearing a mask while out in public, protecting your skin from the sun is essential. It’s no secret that sunscreen can help you avoid damage like hyperpigmentation and dark spots, but a quality SPF moisturizer can also double as a primer, color corrector, and more.

Aside from shielding you from UV rays and neutralizing harmful free radicals, moisturizers with SPF can help even skin tone and hydrate and plump your skin all season long. To narrow down the best options out there, we asked Glamour staffers which ones they’d never step outside without. From lightweight gel formulas to CC creams, check out our 19 faves below to decide on the best moisturizer with SPF for your skin type and concerns. Because remember: The best sunscreen is the one you’ll wear.

Best Overall: Supergoop Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40

When I first tested this for the Glamour Beauty Awards, I knew instantly it’d be a winner. It’s like no other SPF moisturizer I’d ever tried. It soaks right in, and my skin feels immediately plump and bouncy, which could be attributed to the formula’s inclusion of blue-green algae, an ingredient with nourishing benefits and antioxidants. The cream is rich enough to hydrate my dry skin and leave a pretty glow, but it doesn’t leave an oily residue. And most important, it creates a perfect canvas for makeup, with no flashback or pilling. I love it so much I tell everyone I talk to about it. It’s that good. —Bella Cacciatore, beauty associate

Best Drugstore: Aveeno Positively Radiant Facial Moisturizer SPF 30

Every derm I talk to repeats the same advice over and over: The best thing you can do for your skin is wear sunscreen. Even still, I’m terrible at following that advice, which is why I turned to moisturizers with SPF years ago. It makes it easier to make sure I don’t skip sun protection. I’ve tried every expensive option out there, but honestly, none compete with Aveeno’s basic daily moisturizer. It’s lightweight, rubs in easily, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. And if that doesn’t sell you, Jennifer Aniston also swears by it. —Lindsay Schallon, senior beauty editor

Best Splurge: Clé de Peau Protective Fortifying Cream SPF 22

Clé de Peau’s moisturizers don’t run cheap, but they’re by far the most luxurious creams you’ll ever try. And this SPF one is no exception. The cream is rich and decadent, and gives your skin a slightly luminous, pearlescent finish that wears perfectly under makeup. Plus, the packaging is beautiful. —Erin Parker, commerce writer

Best for Sensitive Skin: CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30

Lately, my skin has developed these tiny little bumps known as comedones around my chin and cheeks. I was told by my dermatologist to look for products labeled noncomedogenic (i.e., non-pore-clogging). CeraVe’s moisturizer is clinically proven to prevent oil buildup, therefore diminishing those stubborn clogged pores of mine. It also contains niacinamide to help keep skin calm, as well as ceramides to strengthen your skin barrier—meaning it’s optimal for anyone with sensitive skin. The last great thing about it: Since I have dark skin, I’m always worried when a product (especially one with SPF) dispenses white, but after rubbing it in, there was no white cast in sight. —Talia Gutierrez, beauty assistant

Best for Dry Skin: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30

Kiehl’s moisturizer never disappoints. The consistency of this one runs on the heavier side, so it’s great if you have dry skin, but I also love it during the winter (yes, you still need your SPF when it’s cold!). The formula protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, and it’s made with botanicals that help your skin retain moisture. There’s also no white cast from the sunscreen, which is a must. —E.P.

Best for Oily Skin: Cetaphil Pro Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30

Like so many people, I’ve relied on Cetaphil cleanser for years as a no-fuss drugstore gem that always comes through, and I could say the same for this SPF moisturizer. Thanks to its lightweight, oil-free formula, it’s perfect for my acne-prone summer skin. —E.P.

Best for Redness: La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer SPF 30

My skin is like a finicky baby: The wrong product will either break me out like crazy or cause a red, itchy, irritated mess. I always have a bottle of La-Roche Posay’s Toleriane lotion on hand, no matter what is going on with my skin, it calms it down in one use. This version with SPF has recently become just as essential to me. It’s lightweight but still creamy, and has that same comforting feeling as the original. It doesn’t break me out; it just leaves my skin calm, soft, and ready for makeup. —B.C.

Best for Dull Skin: L’Oréal Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30

Derms swear by L’Oréal’s Revitalift line for good reason: It’s got some of the most potent active ingredients you can find in drugstore skin-care products. This one contains a multitude of do-gooders, like glycolic acid to gently buff away dead skin, vitamin C to provide antioxidant protection, and pro-retinol to help even out your skin tone—and that’s all on top of being a great hydrating moisturizer with SPF 30. What’s not to love? —L.S.

Best for Acne-Prone Skin: UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46

Technically, this is a sunscreen, but it’s honestly so hydrating I sometimes use it in place of moisturizer. The fragrance-free zinc-oxide formula is lightweight but still packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients, like niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. It sinks into your skin almost immediately, and holds up even during the sweatiest of summer workouts. So many sunscreens break me out, and that’s never been the case with this. —Talia Abbas, commerce writer

Best for Dark Spots: Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Facial Moisturizer With SPF 30

Neutrogena products have filled my mother’s medicine cabinet ever since I can remember. So when I started incorporating an SPF to my own routine, Neutrogena was a no-brainer choice. I love this one particularly for its star ingredient, essential soy. With properties known to reduce dark spots and discoloration while brightening at the same time, this moisturizer is the last thing I put on in my skin-care routine for a visibly even, glowing complexion. —T.G.

Best Lightweight: Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer SPF 25

Ask anyone why they don’t like wearing sunscreen, and there’s a very good chance they’ll say it’s because it’s too greasy or heavy. Enter Olay’s whipped sunscreen, which is formulated to be incredibly lightweight, thanks to its cream-to-liquid technology. Despite feeling like nothing on, it’s still super hydrating thanks to hyaluronic acid and vitamin B3, while peptides help keep skin firm. —B.C.

Best for Deep Skin Tones: Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30

Black Girl Sunscreen, founded by Shontay Lundy, is my summertime saving grace, and I don’t leave home without it (along with my mask and hand sanitizer, of course). This moisturizing SPF 30 sunscreen goes on completely sheer, soaks in quickly, and doubles as a primer if you’re wearing foundation or concealer. There’s no greasy residue, just the undeniable glow that accompanies voting with your dollar and supporting Black-owned beauty brands. And at under $20 a tube (available in Target stores nationwide), it’s damn near a steal. I’d recommend it for sensitive and “normal” skin alike, since there’s no fragrance whatsoever. —Brionna Jimerson, associate social media manager

Best Matte Finish: Image Skincare Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturizer Oil-Free SPF 32

I first learned about Image from a cute little facial spot in NYC where my esthetician raved about the brand’s sunscreens. Her recommendations were so glowing I left with a handful of products, including this moisturizer anyone with oily or combination skin will appreciate. The formula is light and contains a kind of micro-sponge technology that helps zap up grease before it turns into an oil slick situation. And yet your skin still looks glowy with it on—never flat. Obsessed. —L.S.

Best Antiaging: Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Face Suncare SPF 50

What I love most about this moisturizer is how lightweight it feels for a formula with a high SPF. And it doesn’t skimp on hydration—it’s made with antioxidant-packed grape water and grapeseed extract, two nourishing ingredients that Caudalie prides itself on. It’s the ultimate one-and-done sun protectant, light enough for solo use and durable enough to last under a full face of makeup. —B.J.

Best Gel Formula: UV Expert Aquagel Defense Primer & Moisturizer SPF 50

I usually prefer standalone sunscreen to hybrids, but this one is great because it still provides high coverage for a moisturizer. The thin, gel-like texture makes it the perfect base for foundation, and I love its subtle flowery scent. —T.A.

Best Organic: Coola Full Spectrum 360° Mineral Sun Silk Moisturizer Organic Sunscreen SPF 30

Between its airy-light texture and extra-smooth formula, this plant-derived moisturizer is a clear winner. It absorbs into my skin flawlessly and is totally transparent, and the jasmine and neroli flower extract make me feel extra fancy.  —E.P.

Best Tinted Moisturizer: Honest CCC Clean Corrective With Vitamin C

Not gonna lie, I’ll be the first one in line for some socially distant sunbathing the second my pool opens back up, and this multipurpose product will be nestled in my bag for daylong protection. Since it evens my skin tone, blurs breakouts, protects from the sun, and locks in moisture—it’s the one-and-done product every summer beauty bag needs. —E.P.

Best CC Cream: It Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

I truly don’t know how this product does it. It’s a buildable CC Cream (so you can get that no-makeup makeup look), has an incredibly high SPF, and still manages to leave pores unclogged and skin feeling weightless. It’s clutch if you’re staying indoors for most of the day, because you still need sun protection if you’re situated near a window! —Shanna Shipin, commerce editor

Best Color Corrector: Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30

When this hydrating, color-correcting, irritation-healing do-it-all cream launched years ago, there were fights in the office about who would get to take a jar home. That’s because this stuff is legit like magic. As I mentioned, yes, it hydrates like a moisturizer, and it contains SPF 30, but that’s only a fraction of its power. Its star ingredient is tiger grass (also called cica), which is rich in anti-inflammatory properties. Cica can help calm irritated skin and has been proved to aid in wound healing. In other words, not only does this color corrector completely cover all the redness from my rosacea—it helps decrease it. It’s a true game changer. —L.S.
