Best All Rounder

AM Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF30, £15.50 | CeraVe

Best Lightweight Feel

Sun Project Water Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++, £16 | Thank You Farmer

High levels of hyaluronic are what makes this skin-quencher a winner for anyone on the drier side. Perfect under make-up or on its own, it creates a natural, dewy finish. Plus, added mistletoe extract will help heal damaged, broken or sensitive skin – encouraging better cell turnover and faster recovery.

Best For Oily Skin

Anthelios Anti-Shine Sun Cream Gel SPF50+, £20.90 | La Roche-Posay

There’s a reason make-up artists and beauty insiders rate La Roche-Posay SPFs. Now, this gel cream takes the best of the brand's protective formulas, merging them with a light but nourishing gel cream that’s perfect for everyday use. It’s particularly good if your skin falls on the oily side, as it limits the production of excess oil. Skin won’t look or feel greasy – and your make-up won’t slip or pill either.

Best Hydrator

Moisture Surge™ 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator, £26 | Clinique

Clinique’s Moisture Surge does exactly what it says on the tin. Brimming with hydrating and nourishing aloe bioferment and a hyaluronic acid complex, this is the perfect daily cream for dry skin. It instantly plumps and boosts glow with each use, while the ultra-thin texture won’t be noticeable under make-up. As well as SPF, it also contains provitamin D to protect barrier function – thereby combatting imperfections, irritants and excess dryness.
