    What are the Best Sunscreens of 2019? First I must start off with the fact that I am not a medical professional, but a concerned consumer and I like to educate myself on the best products to you for all occasions.  In order to rank the best sunscreens of 2019 and all previous years, there are a three factors that I consider,  how they rank on the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to Sunscreen, then how easily they fit into my lifestyle (do they have a white cast, are they super expensive, etc), then the final and most important part….will my family and I use them.
