With Memorial Day right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about stocking your beach bag. You should probably toss any SPF leftover from last year (be sure to check expiration dates) and start anew—and Vita Liberata’s new 3-in-1 Self-Tan Dry Oil SPF 50 is the perfect place to start.
For starters, this just might be the most multitasking sunscreen out there. I love a suntan oil, and this one has a marula and monoi oil base that’s super-hydrating yet nowhere near slippery or greasy. It’s also tinted, so you get instant color that makes your pale, pasty, winter skin look gorgeously golden on your first day at the beach or by the pool. Then, as the broad-spectrum SPF 50 shields your skin from UVA and UVB rays, a natural self-tanner goes to work so you have the sun-kissed look you want at the end of the day without any of the damage.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a harder-working sunscreen for summer 2016, and I’m willing to bet you’ll blow through this bottle by the end of the season (so perhaps you should buy two).
