MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Don't get burned by your sunscreen this summer.
Consumer Reports released its ranking for sunscreens, and it turns out the best protection doesn't have to put a hole in your wallet.

It's a Walmart brand but it's considered a 'best buy' from Consumer Reports with a score of 92 out of 100. According to Consumer Reports, you can purchase it for roughly $5.
The Equate Sport Lotion SPF 50
This is also a Walmart brand, but is considered a favorite. Consumer Reports gave it a near-perfect score of 99. This sunscreen is priced around $5.
Coppertone Water Babies SPF 50
If you want to pay more for a brand name, this sunscreen is recommended. Consumer Reports gave it a score of 95. Based on ounce size, this product could be as much as $11.
Trader Joe's Spray SPF 50+
When it comes to spray, this sunscreen product offers the most for your money. Consumer Reports actually gave this spray sunscreen a perfect score.
Equate Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30
Once again, Walmart makes the list for affordability. However, Consumer Reports gave it a score of 83 out of 100. A two-pack bottle of this sunscreen averages $9.
