When it comes to SPF, you may have noticed not all lotions are created equal. Especially when some leave an icky, greasy feeling on your skin after you apply it. Even the best waterproof lotions shouldn't leave you feeling slimy,  but sometimes your experience with SPF improves when you pay attention to the ingredients and how they match with your skin type!

Here are our picks for the best SPF products for your skin type:
