We love sunshine here in Singapore. 365 days of heat and humidity, however—now that’s a different story. Yet even on the cloudiest of days, a good broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential for healthy skin. Thankfully, Lazada takes the sweat-work out of finding the best sunscreens for our climate with the debut of its LazMall Super Category Day on 26 July in Singapore.
LazMall, home to sunscreens for every skin type and concern
A mecca for scoring the best beauty deals, LazMall is Lazada’s branded destination and home to everything from viral skincare serums to cult make-up products from trusted brands. One thing we all need on the daily, however, is sunscreen. And as temperatures soar and humidity intensifies, our skin is constantly at risk of sun damage, premature ageing, dullness and the onset of skin conditions due to increased UV exposure.
“With some of the highest temperatures recorded this year across Southeast Asia, there are increased consumer demand and searches made on the platform for suncare-related products, which has translated into more than 50 per cent year-on-year growth for the category,” shares Lazada Group’s Clarissa Chen, senior vice president, regional strategic accounts (health & beauty).
Finding high-performance sunscreens that can truly go the distance, while withstanding heat and sweat is no easy feat. With the never-ending assortment of sunscreens on LazMall, you’re bound to find your sunscreen holy grail.

Best sunscreen for oily skin on LazMall
To combat shine and greasy skin, reach for La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios UVMune 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50+. The non-perfumed sunscreen is ultra lightweight and fluid in nature, and comes boosted with Mexoryl400, a patented UV filter that blocks insidious UVA, UVB and ultra long UVA rays against cell damage. Best of all, it’s tested on all phototypes so everyone of all skin tones can enjoy it; is non-perfumed (read: perfect for sensitive skin) and is ultra-resistant to water and sand.
Most effective all-round sunscreen
After a high performance sunscreen that’s barely there in texture, wears beautifully under make-up and won’t break the bank? Look no further than cult classic, Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk SPF 50+ PA++++. Suitable for all skin types, this chemical SPF has been Japan’s number 1 bestselling sunscreen for the past two decades. It contains Anessa’s Triple Defense and Auto Booster Technologies, a UV veil against sweat, water, heat and moisture. Being both friction resistant and waterproof, this sunscreen stays put even after 80 minutes of being in the pool. Best of all, it contains skincare ingredients to fight against photoaging and skin oxidation caused by UV rays.
Best sunscreen for evening out the skin tone
We’ve found that when used as the last step after skincare and just before make-up, Clinique’s Even Better City Block Anti-Pollution SPF40/PA+++ offers a skin finish that’s lit-from-within. Even Better City Block does more than just guard the skin against sun, pollution, and environmental irritants which lead to dark spots, dullness and uneven tone. This tinted SPF comes loaded with antioxidants to actively brighten the skin and reduce the look of discolouration over time.
Bestselling LazMall sunscreens for all skin tones
Sun protection is for every one. Supergoop!’s range of sunscreens are some of the most inclusive out there for diverse shade ranges and skin tones. Whether you’re fair, olive-toned, or are of a deeper, richer complexion, everyone can enjoy the invisible Unseen Sunscreen sans the white cast and chalky residue. It also works as a primer under make-up, and sits comfortably on the skin without leaving a greasy feel.
Best sunscreen for body
The skin on your body is just as important as your face. To protect your skin from damaging UV rays, you’re going to need a heavy duty SPF that’s high in sun protection and low on that greasy, slimy after feel. Enter Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++. We love it for its quick dry down and powdery skin feel after application, especially in this humidity.
