*MyChelle Sun Shield SPF28, £19.50 for 68ml
Although this sunscreen is made from natural UVA/UVB barriers Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Dioxide (which often leave a white film on skin), this has a clear, lightweight, non-greasy finish. Because it’s so gentle, it suits sensitive skins, acne skins and children. They also do a coconut version of the SPF28 cream.
The green bit: Suitable for vegans, comes in recycled packaging and made with organic coconut and aloe vera.
