Summer is just around the corner which means it’s time to pump out the sunscreen. I was recently introduced to Supergoop! and have not been able to put it down since.
The Allure Beauty Expert 2015 Reader’s Choice Award Winner’s first and foremost purpose is sunscreen with ingredients that exclude parabens, synthetic fragrances and oxybenzone. Holly Thaggard, the creator and CEO, conceived the idea for the project when her friend got skin cancer. As a 3rd grade teacher, she realized how preventable the disease was while mulling over the fact that only a small number of her students kept themselves protected from the sun. After talking to many chemists and spending two years perfecting “goop,” she finally discovered a fool-proof formula.
Thaggard’s goals are to educate the world on the importance of sunscreen, even when the sun is hidden, to protect from UVA rays and IRA radiation which come from hair dryers, nails lamps and anything else that emits heat. Her next project with Supergoop! is to go back to teaching, but this time by narrowing her focus on the importance of protecting the skin.
The line currently has twelve products including a core and care line. The core line is centered on providing easy access to on the go protection in a variety of sizes. Personally, I am a huge fan of the Antioxidant-Infused Mist for quick and easy application, and the Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil for a sexy summer glow.
The care line is a great addition to your everyday beauty routine. My favorites are the Defense Refresh Setting Mist and the new Shine-On Lip Screen. Both are applied on top of your makeup and are SPF 50. I am itching to try the Daily Correct CC Cream with anti-aging properties and self-adjusting shades.
I wear sunscreen everyday of the year but I have never found a product that I am able to use post-makeup. Supergoop! is anything but goopy and is available in high-end retailers such as Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstorm, Dillards, Birchbox, and on the Supergoop! website. The price tag ranges between $8.50 and $48 for single products and kits are also available for purchase. The antioxidant-enriched formula has me ecstatic to see what is next on the three year plan and pumped for the additions to my daily skincare.
