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.

Sunscreen but not slippery
Purchased

Love SuerGoop! Not sticky or slick like the sunscreens you use at the beach. Easy to add to my daily routine to keep bad rays from my skin. Purchased for my mom as a gift and she's now hooked. Her skin is very pale. She went out on a boat in Florida for an entire day. She usually burns and has to stay out of the sun completely. For the first time, she was able to be out on the boat without sunburn. Her friends got sunburnt using another spf product. We're in love with SUPERGOOP!

one of my better skin-care decisions
Purchased

I am 31 and started noticing fine lines in my mid twenties. I realized a few years ago that my skin is not going age well and that I needed to take some serious preventative steps to keep my skin looking average, at best. I have dry, sensitive skin and am prone to acne along my t-zone, so the thought of adding an additional product to my daily routine was really unappealing. I used cc cream with spf for awhile, but could see that it wasn't enough if I was outside for more than a few hours. I tried at least a dozen different products before reviews led me to this. It doesn't make me shiny, it doesn't smell overwhelmingly of sunscreen, and it doesn't bother my sensitive skin or make me break out. I use this every day and a bottle lasts for a few months. Very happy with this find.

Best sunscreen for the face

This is my new favorite sunscreen! The texture is great and it absorbs quickly and without any white residue. Unlike many sunscreens, it is moisturizing rather than drying. Also unlike other products I've tried, I have not had any issues with breakouts or blemishes associated with this product. I will be ordering the full size of this one for sure!

Love it
Purchased

This is my favorite sunscreen. I use a separate moisturizer and light foundation, so I like my sunscreen light, non-greasy, and invisible. This is the case with the Supergoop Serum. Sometimes it leaves a light sheen, but nothing that a little bronzer can't cover. It's perfect and I have it on standing order.

did its job
Purchased

i took more than a few pumps to get out the sunscreen initially. but afterwards, it was easy to dispense. went on easily, no excessive rubbing in required and didn't go on greasy. i do wish supergoop made a waterproof and/or organic one though as some places (coral reefs, nature reserves) require that in order to use sunscreen.

No breakouts
Purchased

I use this product whenever I'm in the sun for more than a few mins. It works well and doesn't make me breakout which is hard to find in a sunscreen for the face. The only downside is it has to be reapplied after being in water and stings if it gets in your eyes after swimming.

I love this product. It combines an anti-aging serum with needed daily sunscreen. I received a sample in my Birchbox and have enjoyed every drop! Great texture too, not greasy and very light.

Great stuff!

I have fair skin but hate the thick feel of most sunscreens. This is light but gives you good coverage and works well. This is available in smaller containers so you can just throw it in your purse and use it when you remember. It's my favorite daily sunscreen.

It's a sunscreen, so I hate using it, but it's better than any other sunscreens out there.

I absolutely HATE HATE HATE using sunscreens. They clog pores, they stink, they dry you out no matter what and I feel (thought this might be psychological) that they mess up with your moisturizers and serums by clogging the pores and not letting the good ingredients sink in. With that said, this one, though still being a sunscreen, is probably the best and the lightest one out there. It really does feel like a serum. And though I still hate applying it and I can't possible make myself do it everyday unless I know I'll be out in the sun, it's the lesser evil of all the sunscreens out there. Recommend:)
