Good SPF/Daycreams for under £30

Looking for a new SPF/Daycream. Ideally looking for SPF50 that works well for combination skin and sits well underneath makeup.


I’m obsessed with SPF, I’ve tried lots and this one is my favourite because it’s completely clear and it keeps a great texture on the skin for make up prep:

I really like Glossier’s Invisible Shield. It goes on like a serum (I add it before make-up and it dries nicely). It is only SPF 35, not 50, but as someone who has fair skin, I find it really effective.

My current go to is the Beauty Pie Featherlight SPF, such a great product!

I have combination skin and this one always does the job for me:

I have combination skin and have found really good results with this from La Roche Posay. It’s SPF and skincare rolled into one and leaves a matte finish which works well either for bare skin or as a base under make up :heart:

A little above £30 (but you can often get 20% off codes) I LOVE this, it’s feels really moisturising and absorbs really quickly. It had a slight skin tint so doesn’t have that white affect. I got a decent sized free sample from Space NK to try it out first

I’m a big fan of Altruist. It’s created by a consultant dermatologist, no frills, really delivers and is a great price


Bondi sands hydra spf 50 it’s inexpensive, goes on like a dream and lasts a while!


I love to use 2 Korean SPF creams: one is from Beauty of Joseon. I highly recommend it especially if you struggle with break outs:

This one is from Benton - again it’s great for acne-prone skin, a little product goes a long way. It is easily absorbed:

I love this:

Anything by Paula’s Choice gets my seal of approval. Such a good brand x

I used Gruum SPF50, it is very good for the price, its on Lookfanastic for £6, at the moment and is not too greasy. Some sun cream irritate my skin, but not this one.

I highly recommend heliocare spf gel oil free! They are the best. I stock them too :slight_smile:
You can contact me via my instagram page the skin harmony.

CosRX suncream is a dream. It’s available in so many places and inexpensive.

I use Cerave’s spf 50 daily moisturizer and found it’s worked for me i have sensitive skin that is always breaking out and this stuff is really good - it’s also mineral rather than chemical i believe!
Got lots of great skincare ingredients in it too!!

La Roche Posay every time!

I use medik8. So lightweight and nin greasy

This is the best! CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Cream 50SPF 50ml - Boots

The UV SPF50 is amazing I will never use another SPF again! Slightly more expensive but lasts months & months - Ultra Violette Supreme Screen Hydrating Facial Skinscreen SPF 50+ | Cult Beauty

I agree, it’s fab! I you haven’t tried it already, I also enjoy using the Thank You Farmer water sun cream which is similarly priced I think.
