    1 / 9 Aprilskin Magic Snow Sun Stick, $25 (18 g)

    Most sunscreens have a fluid texture so it can be hard to wrap your head around a stick sunscreen, but swipe it on your skin and youll fall in love with its non-sticky texture. We love how it can be applied both before or after makeup, so its perfect to pack along for touch ups.
