Soleil Toujours SPF 30 Set + Protect Micro Mist, £34
Best For: Setting Make-Up
Why We Love It: Above everything else, Soleil Toujours SPF Mist is brilliant for protecting your skin, but it comes with a raft of other benefits, too. Not only does it set make-up into place, it also hydrates the skin with aloe vera, green tea, and vitamins E and C – the latter of which lends a brightening, glow-y boost. With a formula that’s 70% certified organic, it’s gentle and kind to all skin types, while the lightweight texture is completely transparent, absorbing fast but without any tacky dry down. The holiday-inspired scent is addictive, too.

Kate Somerville UncompliKated SPF50, £34
Best For: All-Round Benefits
Why We Love It: Ideal for reapplying throughout the day, this beloved SPF50 mist is a bestseller for a reason. Dubbed ‘shine-free sunscreen’, it’s great for those who are on the oilier side as it quickly mattifies, while protecting skin and setting make-up, too. Its ultra-fine mist feels weightless on the skin, while the silicone powders offer a smooth, soft-focus effect that’s almost glass-like. Extra points go to the added hyaluronic acid, which works to top up your skin’s hydration levels throughout the day. You’ll want to get a back-up so you’re never without.

Ultrasun SPF50 Face & Scalp Mist, £18
Best For: Hair & Face Protection
Why We Love It: Designed to be worn on top of, or beneath make-up, this transparent spray is easy to use, non-sticky and incredibly refreshing. Offering high levels of protection, it shields skin from both UVA and UVB, while the antioxidant-rich formula keeps skin supple and smooth, preventing that loss of elasticity sun damage can sometimes cause. Those with sensitive or dry skin will benefit, too – it doesn’t really mattify, so you’ll be left with a glossy and plump luminosity post-application.

SVR SPF 50 Brume Sun Secure Mist, £12.95
Best For: A Dewy Glow
Why We Love It: If you want a dewy glow, this one is for you. With an ultra-fine mist, it can be applied to both the face and body to protect against UV, but also to revive make-up throughout the day. Despite the glossiness it leaves behind, it’s not gloopy or thick – quite the opposite. The featherweight texture is fast-absorbing and it never sticks to clothes or causes make-up to slide around. It’s also described as ‘multi-resistant’ too, which means it’s less likely to break down due to perspiration or friction. Plus, it’s suitable for all skin types.

Best For: Speedy Hydration
Why We Love It: Hyaluronic acid, cucumber and aloe extracts combine in this to deliver instant hydration via this thirst-quenching formula. Like a drink for the skin, it feels cooling every time you spritz it, while the high levels of SPF30 keep you protected – assuming you remember to reapply – throughout the day. Expect a semi-matte finish that minimises pores and oiliness, while antioxidants work to strengthen your skin, too. You’ll find it keeps your make-up intact until the end of the day, too.

Why We Love It: We’re yet to find someone who isn’t a fan of this. Experts swear by its non-greasy texture that provides an invisible, breathable veil of protection. More than that, it’s hydrating and ideal for promoting the longevity of your make-up. Pop it in the fridge for an extra cool hit – inflamed or sensitive skin types will love it. Quick and easy to apply, the neat, compact size makes it great for on-the-go, too.

Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist, $14 - $30
Best For: A Barely-There Texture
Why We Love It: Completely transparent, this never disrupts make-up or stains your clothes. With SPF40, it offers high levels of protection with an invigorating, uplifting scent; peppermint and rosemary oils offer a quick mental boost. It’s suitable for all skin types, but especially those who suffer with shine or excess oiliness, as silica silylate helps to reduce shine and lend a smoothing, diffused appearance to the skin. Try to reapply it every one or two hours if you’re in direct sunlight.
