Let's face it: We all know slathering on sunscreen is a must, but reapplying it—which you're *supposed* to do every two to three hours—when you're out and about can just feel too taxing. The product can be sticky, plus it has a tendency to move around your makeup.

Fortunately, there's still another way for you to re-up your SPF sans the sticky, tacky feeling. Enter: Sunscreen sticks. They're essentially solid bars of sunscreen that you glide all over your face, neck, and body and are perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. They're also great for hard-to-reach places like the sides of your nose and underneath your brows!

Need some recos? We gotchu! Ahead, we list down seven sunscreen sticks that are available locally:
