Top-Rated Moisturizers With SPF Under $25

August is Summer Sun Safety Month and with summer in full swing, choosing a good facial moisturizer with SPF keeps the skin protected from the sun, moisturized, and prevents wrinkles and fine lines. This can also help prevent the development of cancer in the future and reduce the chance of discoloration of the skin. 


In the US more than 9,500 people are diagnosed with skin cancer every day! This is due to us being exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Even if it’s a cloudy day, yes the UV rays can still penetrate your skin and give you a sunburn. No matter where you’re living or the time of year, wearing SPF on your face every day is crucial. 


If you’re looking to start or maintain a skincare routine, you can combine two steps in one by choosing a moisturizer that contains SPF. Having a good moisturizer with SPF makes it easy to practice safe sun exposure. If you are looking for a face lotion to help, we at KPG have listed a few affordable options on the market for all skin tones and types.
