Surfer Caroline Marks on Her Favorite $13 Spray SPF and the Struggle of Taking a Shower at Sea

What does a pro surfer, Olympian and someone who is basically always out in the sun, water and sand swear by for protecting her skin?

For Caroline Marks, it’s the soon-to-be-released, non-greasy, non-complicated Alba Botanica Day-to-Day Defense Setting Mist, which hits shelves—and Amazon—this April, alongside its sister product of the Day- to-Day Defense Primer Lotion. (She’s a fan of the entire line and was recently named a brand ambassador.)

Clocking in with a broad-spectrum SPF 30 and a price tag of $13, Marks calls the sheer formula her “go-to for applying under and over makeup” and says it’s a must-pack for when she’s traveling.

“When I’m surfing, I’m sometimes on a boat, and boat beauty products aren’t great. Showers in boats aren’t great either; I’ve had to use a water bottle many times to wash my hair and leave-in conditioners are essential,” she says. “So is this mist. It’s small, easy to pack and I love how moisturizing it is. It’s awesome.”
