RoC Soleil Protexion Multi-Position Atomiser SPF 30 RoC, $26, shoppersdrugmart.com. When you're traveling solo the spray sunscreens definitely come in handy to cover those hard to reach areas, such as the neck, shoulders and upper back. Admittedly, I still haven't mastered the art of SPF spray sunscreens— I had missed a few random spots the resulted in Pollock looking burns on my tummy and toes. I would recommend applying the spray inside and away from wind; otherwise the breeze will totally pilfer your precious SPF. This spray from RoC goes on smoothly, dries fast (but still rub it in) and doesn’t leave you feeling the least bit greasy.
Ombrelle Ultra-Fluid Lotion for face SPF 30, $17, shoppersdrugmart.com.Last year Ombrelle launched this facial sunscreen in an SPF 60 to great success. Truth be told there's not much difference between an SPF 60 and SPF 30, however the brand decided to launch a 30 (out now) because of consumers' preferences. The chemical SPF formula is ultra light and absorbed into skin immediately with no white residue left behind. Super easy to apply, fragrance and won't clog pores.
