Sunscreen is essential, and as annoying as it is, it needs to be reapplied every couple of hours. We love applying the lotion in the morning, but it's so messy to carry around in your bag, especially if you're out and about all day and wearing makeup! Sunscreen sticks are great alternative for touch-ups because they will take up less space in your bag and make less of a mess. Plus, most of these promise to go over or under makeup.

Here are some great sunscreen sticks to add to your bag. 

Abib Quick Sunstick Protection Bar SPF50+

We love that this K-beauty product has an SPF of 50 and does not give your skin a white cast. It promises to be non-sticky and can be applied over makeup without disturbing it. It has ceramides and peptides, which can help strengthen your skin barrier. Another reason to love it is that it also features cucumber and centella extract, which can help smooth and hydrate your skin. This can be used on your face and your body. 

Supergoop Glow Stick Sunscreen SPF 50

We love this sunscreen stick because it leaves your skin with a glowy finish. Since it gives your skin a glow, it doubles as a face and body highlighter. On top of giving you the glowy skin of your dreams, it can also help hydrate your skin. It uses pracaxi oil, which helps moisturize your skin with fatty acids. It also contains tamanu oil, which can help protect against free radicals. 

Shiseido Clear Sunscreen Stick SPF 50+

Shiseido Clear Suncreen Stick SPF 50+ is designed to help target skin issues while also providing you with the SPF you need to get through the day. This sunscreen has a hydrating and invisible finish and was created to be used under or over makeup. It is also residue-free. 

This suncreen stick uses something called SynchroShield technology, which can help give your skin extra protection, and it's actually strengthened by water and heat. Another ingredient in this is soy lecithin, which will help with dullness, dark spots, and wrinkles. If you thought this couldn't get better, this product also contains licorice root extract, which evens your skin tone and soothes your skin. 

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face and Body Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 50

This vegan and not-tested-on-animals sunscreen stick earned its spot on our list because it is sensitive skin-friendly and works on all skin types. It can help keep your skin moisturized, smooth, and soft without leaving any white residue. We also love that it uses 21.6% zinc oxide mineral and vitamin E, which help your skin with aging concerns. It is a mineral sunscreen and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
