Once upon a time, I was a brown girl who believed sunscreen wasn’t for me. I didn’t need it because I was too dark and I couldn’t get skin cancer right? Wrong! Everybody needs sunscreen from the lightest to the darkest. Not only to protect from cancer causing rays, but prolonged sun exposure with no protection causes dark spots to darken, skin to toughen, and to be honest dark tough skin makes us look way older. I don’t want to look like an orange left in the sun too long. In addition to a full body sunscreen, I wanted a facial sunscreen that’d protect me, in came SUPERGOOP! Defense Refresh Setting Mist with SPF 50.
Inspired by the trends in mists, SUPERGOOP!’s founder, Holly Thaggard, wanted to provide a product that would deliver the benefits of both a makeup setting spray as well as a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up, but with the added and necessary age preventative benefit of broad-spectrum SPF 50 UV protection.
This 3-in-1 spray sets your makeup, acts as a sunscreen, and helps control oil and shine. It’s infused with rosemary and mint to refresh and treat your skin. Here’s the claim “Optical diffusing silica silylate controls oil and scatters light to reduce shine and provide a matte finish while the formula is enlivened with an invigorating essence of antioxidant-rich rosemary to help visible slow skin aging, improve complexion, and soothe inflammation.”
It’s easy to use, can easily fit in my beach bag, and I enjoy the mint fragrance and slight tingle when I spray it. I was beyond excited to finally try a SUPERGOOP! product because I’m always looking for ways to protect my skin and keep it looking great. A spray that hits three areas of my makeup routine is the spray for me.
