    Oscar de la Renta Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30 Cream, $42, oscardelarenta.com

    Superficially, whose beach tote wouldn’t benefit from having this chic tube in it? For practical purposes, its formidable SPF protects in a nice, non-greasy, lightly scented way.

    Coola Baby SPF 45 Unscented All Natural Mineral Sunscreen, $25, coolasuncare.com

    Chemical and preservative-free, with plankton and organic beeswax to boost the SPF, this formula’s gentle enough for the little tykes.

    Anthelios 50 Tinted Mineral, $33, laroche-posay.us.com

    Purists and minimalists alike will love this two-fer product. Both a tinted moisturizer (for cosmetic coverage) as well as a sturdy sunscreen (for REAL coverage), its consistency is as natural feeling as its shake-it formulation.
