How have you all been doing? It’s already been two months of summer and sun protection continues to be on our primary list. However, a lot of us tend to skip sunscreens to avoid the greasiness. I have been guilty of the same and, therefore, we at IMBB have compiled a list of best non-greasy sunscreens for all skin types.
This is an ideal sunblock for girls who like their sunscreens tinted and matte. This has been a Holy Grail sunscreen for a lot of girls out there, and why not! It comes with SPF 40, with UV-A and B protection, it gives a tinted and bright-toned look and is completely matte. Therefore, this is a budget-friendly option for all you lovers of tinted sunscreens.
The name says it all. Neutrogena is one of the most trusted drugstore brands. This variant offers a high spectrum block of SPF 50 and protects against both UV-A and UV-B rays and it is dry. It is non-comedogenic and is absolutely sweat proof and waterproof with a non-greasy formulation. For all those looking for a high protection sunscreen, which is ideal for Indian humid summers, this is surely a great pick.
Another effective way of avoiding the grease and the whitish cast is to buy a spray sunblock, and La Roche Posay doesn’t fail to deliver with this one. It is paraben and fragrance-free, protects against sunburn and tanning and is water resistant. Therefore, make sure to pick one up before you hit the beaches in your next vacation. And, another plus is that our very own Rati absolutely recommends it.
The Body Shop is a cruelty-free brand that most of us love and it does not fail to deliver even this time with this effective UV protection day cream. This one has the Japanese power ingredient ‘Shiso’ along with Vitamin C and liquorice. It is oil-free and suitable for all skin types. It does not feel heavy on the skin at all. So all you The Body Shop lovers don’t forget to pick this one up.

From its long staying power based 9 to 5 range, this sunscreen is armed with SPF 50. It comes in a very attractive blush pink travel-friendly packaging. The mattifying effect forms a perfect base for your makeup and therefore if you are a fan of Lakme go ahead and pick this one.
