Supergoop!®

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 noncomedogenic and 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.

Smooth and not greasy

I really don't care for most facial sunblocks -- they're always too greasy for my tastes -- but this one was perfect and totally not greasy at all. Great for the beach. The sample in the box was just the right amount to get me through the first half of summer. Highly approve!

New favorite - no more greasy feeling!

So pleased with this sunscreen serum. Lightweight coverage that feels light and not at all greasy. I wear it daily under my foundation.

My favorite face sunscreen so far

I got this as a sample and took it with me on a trip to the desert and then a trip to the beach. I used it as my daily morning moisturizer instead of my usual moisturizer. It worked great! No sunburn after spending hours in the intense sun every day for two weeks. That says a lot especially considering that I am a fair-skinned redhead. This serum is no greasy and it has no "sunscreen smell." I am seriously considering buying the full-sized product.

Perfect for Everyday Wear

Went on clean and comfortable underneath my makeup without smudging or making me look greasy. I would definitely recommend this for everyday wear.

Good for your face

This sunscreen isn't as greasy like others so it's perfect for your face and the SPF is higher than 15 so you know you'll be protected for a few hours. I put it on before my BB cream, which also has spf in it.

Smooth!!!

Love the scent. It's light but won't interfere with my perfume. It isn't super greasy, but is a tad just upon application. It dries extremely fast to a smooth satin finish. I'm thinking of trying the CC cream! Thanks birchbox !

Creamy but not oily

I have quite fair skin so, unlike most people, I actually enjoy getting suncream samples in my Birchbox. I really liked the Supergoop serum as it felt moisturising and protective without being oily or greasy.

Protects skin

I liked this sun screen. It went on easy and absorbed quickly. It wasn't greasy or too thick. Protected my skin even when I went in and out of the pool. It had a great smell and I liked the way it felt on my skin.

Just okay
Purchased

I guess I expected more out of this serum. Just feels like putting regular sunscreen on your face. Nothing special about it. I'm glad I got the travel size, seeing as this product has no "wow" factor.
