The best celeb-approved sunscreens for your family

Editorial Feature

These stars may shine like the sun, but that doesn’t protect them from its harmful rays.

Online beauty retailer Escentual has helped Celebrity Secrets round up the best sunscreens with a celeb stamp of approval, as every product listed is a top quality, high factor, broad-spectrum, and dermatologically tested formula.

1. Escentual Sunscreen SPF50+

Love Island stars Georgia Harrison and Tyne-Lexy Clarson, skincare expert Caroline Hirons, former Made in Chelsea star Hugo Taylor (pictured below) and actress Kara Tointon are all fans of the Escentual Sunscreen SPF50+.

Part of a nationwide #SunPoverty campaign by online retailer, Escentual, this SPF is broad-spectrum, dermatologically tested, water-resistant for up to four hours, and designed for all skin types and tones. Celebs are backing both the high protection formula and the cause, which will see 30,000 sunscreens donated to children on free school meals across the UK this summer.

2. La Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50+

Supermodel Kate Moss has widely talked about her love of the La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF50+. Lightweight, very high protection, and travel-friendly, it’s a jet-setting model’s perfect go-to!

Kate’s original favourite may have been recently discontinued (February 2022) but the new version is even better – it took 10 years of research, and more than 60 scientific studies to create, and it’s La Roche-Posay’s newest UV filter since 1998. Kate has said she particularly loves this product because you can wear it under your makeup.

3. Clarins Dry Touch Sun Care Cream for Face SPF30

Cindy Crawford’s top choice for beach days is anything by Clarins. She said the best advice she ever got from her dermatologist was to wear sunscreen every day, and has spoken of how she chooses Clarins SPF for the beach. 

This particular Clarins sunscreen is a lightweight facial sunscreen with a matte finish for all skin types. Its patented Sun Care Multi-Protection formula is designed to protect your skin’s vital elements (the epidermis and dermis, hydration process and collagen and elastin fibres) and will ensure it is shielded in long-lasting protection without a chalky white cast.

4. Avene Sun Care Intense Protect SPF50+

Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn were spotted protecting their two children from the sun with the award-winning Avene Sun Care Intense Protect SPF50+. Avene is best-known for its sensitive-skin-friendly formulas, and this SPF is no different – perfect for protecting their precious daughters.

The broad-spectrum sunscreen was developed after 20 years of research and contains the first organic sun filter that can absorb and reflect UVB, short UVA and long UVA rays, and high-energy visible blue light.
