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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!
