Best Mineral Sunscreen Value

If you prefer a mineral sunscreen (these block the sun with a physical barrier, not chemicals), Blue Lizard is your best budget-friendly bet. This lotion is top-rated by both consumers and the Environmental Working Group, which reviews sunscreens based on ingredient safety. Fun fact: The bottle turns a deeper pink when UV rays are present, so it’s great for extended outings in the sun.

Available at toysrus.com, $17.99.
