The 8 Best-Selling Drugstore Sunscreens in Australia
Like brushing your teeth and removing makeup, sunscreen should be an essential part of your skincare regime, especially as we dive head-first into Australian summer. Characterised by beach days, sunshine, and the great outdoors, hunting down the perfect sunscreen formula is pretty damn important at this time of year. We want something that's light, non-chalky, and won't leave us feeling like a grease ball—oh, and a wallet-friendly price tag wouldn't hurt either. Too much?
At Byrdie Australia, we love nothing more that sourcing out reasonably-priced products that work. We often look to drugstores for an endless selection of products that don't cost top dollar, so to streamline the process, we asked Priceline to share its eight top-selling sunscreens that Australians are clearly obsessed with. Spoiler: The top-spot was taken out by a $6 handbag essential.

Cancer Council Active Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 50+ ($15)
If active summer weekends are more your thing, you need a long-lasting formula that won’t slip off when you’re sweating. This cream has a dry finish without leaving a white cast. Still, be sure to reapply after swimming or toweling.
