water resistant sunscreen

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for water resistant sunscreen.

Water-resistant sunscreens are a great option for people who want to protect themselves from the sun while spending some time in the water. These sunscreens are designed to keep working even if you get wet, and they're often easier to apply than regular sunscreens. Here are the best water-resistant sunscreens that are sure to make a splash.


I've been searching for the water resistant sunscreen for a while and most of the sun screens, whether it's physical or not, water resistant or not, from high end to drugstore, somehow make me oil after a few hours or simply do not stay on my face because I always sweat so much in summer. ...My Forever Sunscreen...I was on the hunt for a sunscreen that didn't contain any harsh ingredients, didn't leave white residue on my face, was not greasy, and water/sweat resistant.

What it is:
A vitamin-enriched, oil-free, water- and sweat-resistant lotion that offers superior broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

What it is formulated to do:
Formulated for extreme conditions, Sun Guard forms a barrier of protection and stays on during intense physical activity in and out of the water so it won't run or drip into eyes. UVA and UVB absorbers—octinoxate, octisalate, and zinc oxide—screen harmful ultraviolet rays, while organic calendula flower soothes and comforts skin with natural calming properties.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates
