Birchbox Breakdown

<

p>Day-to-day sun exposure requires the same precautions as an afternoon spent poolside. This light yet powerful serum fulfills that everyday need. Both a moisturizer and a broad-spectrum SPF 30, it fights the signs of premature aging—think fine lines and sunspots—and prevents future photo-damage from UV rays. Built for year-round use, it’s great for layering under foundation. The mattifying formula can also stand alone on the days you’re not wearing makeup.

How it Works

Supergoop’s unique Hydrovotin 24 complex works with the skin’s own moisture mechanisms to increase hydration levels, while vitamins E and B5 heal past damage. A chemical sunscreen duo absorbs both UVA rays that lead to premature aging and UVB rays that cause sunburn. The top-of-the-line “PA +++” rating means the formula meets the highest standards for sun protection. The kicker? This sunscreen serum is paraben and fragrance-free—just what the doctor ordered for sensitive skin.

How to Use

Apply two to three pumps of serum to face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure. Wait for it to sink in, then follow with makeup if desired.

Nice basic item

Light weight formula, hydrating to the skin. It's nice as a basic SPF moisturizer application. It's scent is not to over powering, and smells like normal SPF products.

Great product!

Love it! I've been using a BB cream with only 15 SPF so I love that this stuff protects my skin from the sun with a higher SPF and also provides enough coverage that I don't need foundation over it. The only improvement I can see is if it was a teeny bit more moisturizing. Overall, good product and I'll likely be buying it soon. Especially for the price!

Light and moisturizing

I love this stuff; couldn't believe it was sunscreen. It was so light but really moisturizing! I don't have to wear moisturizer when I put this on! Also non-greasy which is not common with sunscreens I've used in the past.

Lightweight feeling - great sun protection

This stuff is great and does the job! Has a little bit of the sunscreen smell but not offensive - I've never met a sunscreen that doesn't. It goes on nicely under makeup and works well even though my skin can be pretty oily.

Great for sensitive skin
Purchased

I bought this because I use, and really like, the supergoop cc cream. I have sensitive skin and at 36 with two small children, I need to start protecting my skin from sun without missing out on the fun of being outside. I also bought it for a family vacation to mexico last month. This went on smooth and didn't irritate my face at all. I didn't burn, I felt my skin was protected all day. It also doesn't have an over powering odor (gag). Really happy with the packaging as well- pump on to your finger and not dip into a dish.

Nice texture

I like this product. I like the extra sun protection. I'll definitely apply this before work on sunny days. Not sure if it's worth the price though.

Light and smoothing

I really liked this sample. I live on the beach and I don't wear make up when I go to the beach normally. But today is 80 degrees and I am going for a beach walk with my boyfriend in a few minutes. It's noon and the sun is strong today. I put this on with a little powder and a little creme blush. The screen is light and made my skin feel great, did not feel greasy at all and did well as a primer with my powder. A little bit went a long way, and I think I'll buy some more for what I hope to be an extra sunny summer.

Light but oily

This is a lightweight formula but feels a bit greasy. I used this underneath my foundation and felt that I got oily faster. I haven't tried it by itself and hope it doesn't appear too greasy when I do use it at the beach.
