Best Sunscreen For Running

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for Best Sunscreen For Running.

Whether you're a serious endurance athlete or just like to get outside for an occasional jog, you know that the right sunscreen can make all the difference in your comfort. Here are some of the best sunscreens for runners.


It is extremely comfortable to wear and softens the skin and keeps your skin healthy and protected, plus it lasts all day. Compared to other sunscreens I have used, this one is the best, it is not goopy, it doesn't leave a white cast or feel heavy at all and it does exactly what it promises....I only wish it came in a nighttime formula so IT didn’t have the sunscreen in it. I prefer natural sunscreens. But it did seem to help with sunspots.

What it is: A melting, lightweight sunscreen and face cream in one that lifts, firms, and corrects the appearance of dark spots.
