Any more recommendations for body sunscreen? Some of these are a bit too expensive to spread over my whole body!

Olive Young occasionally has great deals on Korean sunscreens, especially for their sets of 2. If you don't mind sacrificing some protection, Equate (Walmart) Ultra Lotion SPF 50 Sunscreen for $5 a tube or the Trader Joe’s Spray SPF 50+ Sunscreen for $14 are both recommended by Consumer Reports. Both have SPF that came in lower than 50 (in the 30s) but if you apply enough and reapply frequently it should be ok.

The La ROche-Posay one is also my go-to for outdoor days in summer. I wonder how the UVA protection of the new one compares to the previous version.

It's supposedly better since they have the new UVA filter, and I can't imagine it getting worse (though the possibility is always there)
