Going to the beach is always fun, but the pain of sunburn is not. Spray sunscreens are as effective as creams, but easier to apply - just remember, you should still rub the product in.

8/10

Banana Boat Banana Boat Ultra Protect Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 (HK$110/ 175ml)

This misty spray needs only a few spritzes to cover the whole body and it dries quickly. It has a fresh scent that evokes the beach. Those who sweat a lot will need to reapply regularly.

6/10

Sexy Girl UV Perfect Cut Spray SPF 50/ PA+++ (HK$108/60g)

I don't really like the strong scent of this spray, although it is light and easy to apply. The price is also a bit high for such a small can.

7/10

UV Spray Make Keep SPF 50/ PA+++ (HK$168/60g)

This Japanese aerosol sunscreen protects you from the sun while keeping your make-up in place. Very convenient for the girl who wants to look good under the sun, but still be safe from its deadly UV rays.

9/10

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Wet Skin Body Mist SPF50+ PA+++ (HK$139.9/ 141g)

A thicker-than-average spray, which gives you the confidence that you're properly protected. This isn't the cheapest, but knowing your skin is safe makes it worth the price.

8/10

Sunplay Watery Cool Body Mist Sunblock SPF75 PA+++ (HK$116.9/ 150ml)

This sweat-proof sunscreen makes a great choice for a day of intense workouts or frolicking at the beach. While it might be hard to avoid getting a tan, you are well-protected against burns. A spray gives an extra cooling effect!
