I love Supergoop because it is a brand built on one of the most imperative skin care commandments: Wear SPF every day.
Ask any dermatologist: Daily sunscreen is one of the most important things you can incorporate into your routine—even in winter, the sun’s UV rays can penetrate clouds, reflect off of snow, and seep into your skin. No matter the season, those UV rays mutate your skin cells; they “age” your skin and reduce its firmness, resilience, and suppleness. They can also lead to skin cancer (and of course, sunburns).
Skipping it daily might seem innocuous, but multiple that 10- or 20-minute daily exposure times every single day of your life that you absorb UV rays. We’re talking hundreds, or thousands of hours. Who at 60 is going to look 50, and who is going to look 70? The difference is likely SPF, which is your #1 anti-aging companion, because it proactively prevents the damage.
That brings me back to Supergoop, a brand built around sun protection—and the understanding that its customers have different preferences when it comes to SPF coverage. For example, some people only want mineral sunscreen options, while others may not care if their sunscreen has chemical components. Some people want SPF inside their daily moisturizer, while others prefer a separate layer of SPF, independent of the moisturizer (or face sunscreen). Some people like to lather on their SPF. Some like to spray it on. Some want SPF 30 (the minimum recommendation, by the way.) Some like 50+. Some want sunscreen for the exposed parts of their scalp. Some want SPF-packed lip balms. We could go on.
Supergoop rounds all of these bases, and then some. Whichever way you want your SPF, this outstanding, essential brand can give it to you.
The 10 Best Supergoop Products
Supergoop “Superscreen” daily oil-free moisturizer
If you want to consolidate an SPF application into your facial moisturizer, then this daily lightweight cream has you covered.
Supergoop “Daily Dose” Vitamin C serum + SPF
You can also get your daily SPF from this Vitamin C serum. Layer it on underneath a daily moisturizer, to also enjoy the complexion-brightening benefits of Vitamin C.
Supergoop “Daily Dose” ceramide sunscreen oil
The newest member of the Supergoop lineup, this hydrating face oil can be applied over top of your daily moisturizer, and gives you a breathable, lightweight radiance, alongside a dose of skin-firming ceramides. (If you have acne-prone or oily skin, opt for a serum or moisturizer instead—this is best suited for dry or “normal” skin types.)
Supergoop “Unseen Sunscreen” face sunscreen
If you’re already in a monogamous relationship with your moisturizer, then you can apply this lightweight SPF layer underneath or over top the cream, for an oil-free layer of sun protection.
Supergoop “Every. Single. Face.” SPF 50 facial lotion
This cooling SPF “watery lotion” is designed for “Every. Single. Face.” as the product name insists. It’s a lightweight daily facial sunscreen that you can apply over top of your moisturizer, and that remains resistant to water and sweat for up to 40 minutes—perfect for your outdoor exercise sun defense, since it wears feather-light and won’t clog pores.
Supergoop “Hand Screen” sunscreen
Most of the “daily SPF wear” dialogue centers around the face. Don’t forget that your hands (and arms, and neck) are almost always exposed, too. This hydrating, nourishing hand cream is a rare one that also packs sun protection. After all, the hands, like the face, show wear and tear faster than other body parts. Be good to them!
Supergoop “Poof” mineral scalp powder
Have you ever gotten a sunburn along the part of your hair, or between your thinning patches? It sucks, a lot, and it’s obviously damaging for your precious hair follicles, too. Sprinkle some of this powder onto those exposed areas for protection that won’t clump into your hair.
Supergoop “Play” lip balm
Lip burns are all too common, given we don’t usually cover them with SPF even as we protect our faces. Here’s a refreshing lip balm that prevents a painful, peeling pucker.
Supergoop “Play” mineral body sunscreen mist
The fastest, cleanest way to get an all-over body shield is with a sunscreen mist. This mineral option is water- and sweat-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
Supergoop! body and face sunscreen
Last but certainly not least, this is an SPF for face and body alike. I use it for my body, since I like a dedicated face product; but what’s great is that it won’t suffocate pores or cause breakouts if you do use it above the neck. I’d even recommend an upgrade to the 18-oz. jumbo tub for $58—throw it in your tote and you’ll be the hero of beach day.
