Score for the SPF 30, but add a quadruple score for making a cream that feels light on the skin, adds a bit of a glow, still hydrates, and costs under 20 bucks. Includes natural licorice extract to brighten, and blue agave and prickly pear extracts to treat dryness and improve firmness.
For a multitasking option, try Salma's AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream ($20). Not only does it smell fresh and bright, but thanks to a key ingredient (bark from the tepezcohuite tree), it's antioxidant rich and works to tone the skin — and at a very reasonable price. I think we can all get behind that.
