If you already have a multi-step skincare routine, you know how important two-in-ones are. Picking a product that provides multiple benefits not only saves you time, but ensures that your skin is getting exactly what it needs. Choosing a body lotion with SPF is a great way to keep your skin moisturized while protecting against sun damage at the same time. Talk about a win-win! To save you time sorting through all the options out there, we’ve rounded up our top picks.

Best Overall: La Roche-Posay Anthelios Cooling Water Lotion

La Roche-Posay created this lotion to work for your face and your body without the greasy feeling normally left behind by sunscreen. The formula blends into your skin just like water and leaves behind a clean, refreshing sensation. It's non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, allergy-tested, and oil free and is even formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 60 to protect against UVA and UVB rays that can harm your skin.

Best Budget: Lubriderm Daily Moisture Body Lotion With Broad Spectrum SPF 15

As a dermatologist-trusted and beloved consumer brand, Lubriderm created this body lotion with vitamin B5 for a clinically proven 24 hours of moisture. To give you protection against the tough UVA and UVB rays that age and damage your skin, this product contains broad-spectrum SPF 15. The clean, non-greasy formula keeps your skin feeling soft and supple all day long.

Best for Daily Use: Supergoop! Forever Young SPF 40 Body Butter

An everyday body lotion with SPF should also be moisture-rich. This one from Supergoop! is filled with antioxidants and natural oils to keep your skin nourished and refreshed and is topped off with SPF 40 to boot. Due to the omega-rich sea buckthorn extract, this lotion has the power to reduce the signs of aging and uneven skin tones. With a light scent of eucalyptus, clove, and vanilla, this body butter doesn’t leave that chemical smell on your skin like many sunscreens do. An added bonus: All Supergoop! products are created without parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, and fragrances. 

Best for Sensitive Skin: Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion With SPF 15

Aveeno is a choice product for dry, yet sensitive skin due to the super gentle formula. While their regular body lotion works wonders, their daily lotion with SPF 15 gives you full protection from UVA and UVB rays in addition to great hydration. The non-greasy formula with no added fragrance is made from colloidal oatmeal, which works to protect your skin with a barrier that attracts and locks in moisture. Although the formula is clinically tested to last for 24 hours, it’s recommended to reapply sunscreen every two to three hours for proper protection, especially if you’re spending excess time in the sun or water.

Best with SPF 50: CeraVe Sunscreen Body Lotion SPF 50

Whether you’re going somewhere sunny for spring break or laying out in your backyard, it’s always important to have a strong SPF in your skincare collection to protect your skin. On top of having SPF 50 to protect for UVA and UVB rays, this pick from CeraVe is also non-comedogenic and oil-free, so it won’t block your pores. It’s even accepted by the National Eczema Association as being a product great for sensitive skin conditions and eczema. Your skin won’t be irritated with a formula like this.

If you’re using this to replace just a sunscreen, CeraVe recommends applying this every two hours if you’re continuously in the sun. This formula is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes, so once that timer buzzes, reapply immediately.

Best Unscented: Eucerin Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Body Lotion

For some, added fragrance can be irritating to the skin. Eucerin created this fragrance-free, ultra-light, non-greasy lotion to provide 24-hour hydration and two-hour protection against the sun. It also comes in a convenient pump bottle for easy use.

Best Natural: Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sport Moisturizer

Made specifically for those who love the outdoors (and organic products!), this lotion offers full UVA and UVB protection with a broad spectrum SPF 30. Juice Beauty blends organic jojoba and aloe with vitamins and antioxidants for a moisturizer that covers all your bases. It’s water resistant and chemical free, but gives you the barrier you want against the sun and fully moisturizes your body.
