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.

Lightweight and effective

I liked the weight of this serum; it was light and was easy to put on, blended easily and didn't feel heavy. I didn't feel that I'd use it as a stand alone moisturizer, though, more as a sunscreen. It just didn't give my dry skin quite enough moisture. I have sensitive skin and it was not irritating at all.

Love it!

I love the fact that this is tinted. It is like makeup instead of sunscreen! Can't wait to use it this summer!

Nice and light

I think this is a pretty nice product: it's light, not greasy. I'm not sure if it gives me the kind of moisture that I want, though.

amazing
Sampled

I used this product even under my eyes, like an eye cream, and i loved. It did proctect my skin and i noticed every time i used my skin was improving on its texture. I like the fact that its packed with antioxidants and is one less thing for me to put it on. Love the duality of the product.

Great SPF serum
Sampled

This a great SPF serum it does not leave your face that greasy and would be a great sunscreen to take on a vacation in a hot humid location when you didn't want anything too heavy on your face. It does show a slight white cast until really rubbed in. I would not recommend this for photos.

Maui

I used this project in Maui over spring break and it kept me sun burnt free with a pretty smell. I'm pretty young so the anti-aging wasn't a factor to me.
