Supergoop!®

Birchbox Breakdown

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 product

I liked this product. Went on smoothly, no odd smells. Very moisturizing and matte like it claims. I also love the SPF factor since I burn easy on my face!

Light and non-greasy

I already have a daily sunscreen so I didn't need to purchase this product. It was a great product though. Very light feeling on my skin which is important to me!

Felt great on skin!

This product is great. It feels amazing in your skin and doesn't leave it feeling oily. Felt it working all day long and left skin feeling amazing.

A little bit goes a long way!

I used this product as a moisturizer and sun screen. I'm 26, so I can't comment on anti aging effects. It takes very little product to cover the face. I didn't feel oily after it was applied. I also didn't smell like sun block! I wore this product without make up. It was a decent moisturizer.

As sunscreen moisturizers go it worked well. Sunscreen moisturizers are hard on my skin or I'd purchase it.

Wish it wasn't so expensive!

I really liked how this product feels on my face. Extremely light weight. And best part is that I can save time on priming my face because it works as a primer!

Fabulous Serum
Sampled

I'm loving this serum. I need a tiny bit more moisture, so I used a bit of my current moisturizer on top in dry areas, followed by my bronzing self-tanner cream and BB cream. Seems like a lot, but it did not cause any oiliness or greasiness. Has a very light scent and I love the sun protection I get. Am definitely purchasing.

Great sun protection
Sampled

I love that this has a higher SPF than a lot of moisturizers out there, and doesn't smell bad. Despite its name, it's not 'goopy', and works perfectly. This is something I would consider buying when I run out of my sample size.

I enjoyed the sample and I love the smell. I can't really determine the effectiveness through the sample but overall I like the feel and the smell of the product.
