Because they're so portable and easy to apply, sunscreen sticks have become a beauty bag mainstay, especially during summer, when frequent reapplication throughout the day becomes mandatory. Picking out a sunscreen that'll actually protect your skin without causing irritation is a notoriously tricky process, though — but you can't go wrong with any of the best sunscreen sticks featured here. They all have an SPF of at least 30, as suggested by the American Academy of Dermatology, and they're all fragrance-free and mineral-based as well. That means each and every one of these sunscreens should be completely safe for people with sensitive skin, including kids and babies.
Though it's easy to toss a sunscreen stick in your bag or leave it at your desk at work, one complaint people often have about sunscreen sticks is that they can get melty in high heat. To prevent that from happening, toss yours into a cooler with some ice packs when you're at the beach, and don't leave them in your car.
