This water-resistant, fragrance-free sunscreen is a very good option for use from the neck down (though it can be applied to the face, too). It includes zinc oxide for reliable UVA protection and its moisturizing base formula is suitable for normal to dry skin. The presence of synthetic active ingredients doesn't make this a slam-dunk for those with sensitive skin, but that really depends on whether or not your skin reacts to sunscreen ingredients like these (most people tolerate them just fine). Otherwise, this is well worth considering and the price is, in a word, amazing. This would be rated a Best Product has Trader Joe's included more than a dusting of antioxidant vitamins.

California-based specialty grocer chain Trader Joe's isn't the first place you may think of when shopping for skin care, and rightly so: the bulk of this store's inventory is, not surprisingly, foods and beverages. However, they've recently ventured into sun care and offer a couple of worthwhile, inexpensive sunscreens as well as a remarkable facial cleanser. The sunscreens from TJ's we recommend aren't knock-your-socks-off spectacular, but are quite the beauty bargain. If you have a Trader Joe's in your neighborhood, some of the sunscreens are definitely worth a look, especially if you have a family to cover from head to toe during summer months when more of us are outdoors for long periods of time.

    • My earlier review of this sunscreen where I thought TJ's had changed the formulation is in error. They actually have 2 spf 30 products but only one on the shelf. The one with physical blockers is not available and an employee was not sure if it has been discontinued. Sorry for the confusion.
