If you ask my Allure editor or board-certified dermatologist about the non-negotiables of skin care, we can guarantee that sunscreen will be at the top of the list. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the American Academy of Dermatology recommends applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or more onto exposed areas of skin and reapplying every two hours in order to properly guard against harmful UV rays and keep concerns like early signs of aging, sunburns, and even skin cancer at bay. The good news is there’s a nearly infinite amount of sunscreens on the market that meet the AAD’s SPF standards, but if you’re in need of a formula that goes above and beyond sun protection, the best Supergoop sunscreens literally have you covered.
What makes Supergoop products so marvelous? Ever since the brand hit the market in 2007, it’s become an Allure Best of Beauty-winning favorite among those in the beauty industry for its impressive skin-protecting formulations that don’t contain oxybenzone, octinoxate, parabens, and 1,600 other ingredients on the brand’s No List. Beyond its meticulously-crafted formulas, many of the brand’s skin-care products also contain nourishing ingredients including antioxidant vitamin C for its free radical-fighting properties and moisturizing sunflower extract. The best part? Most of Supergoop’s lineup also blends into the skin like a dream, so you won’t have to worry about issues like white casts and sticky residue.
Whether you’re looking for sunscreen with a dewy finish or a scentless option for your body, we can guarantee that Supergoop has what you need. Below, take a look at our all-time favorite sun protection products from the brand to guard your skin all year long and beyond.
If there’s one sunscreen you need to try in your lifetime, it’s the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40. It’s one of the few sunscreens to ever win both Allure Best of Beauty and Readers’ Choice Awards for its totally transparent formula that also acts as a marvelous makeup primer. On top of its streak-free formula, this broad-spectrum SPF 40 sunscreen contains antioxidant-rich ingredients like meadowfoam seed extract and red algae to protect against oxidative stress, brighten skin, and provide hydrating benefits.
What’s the secret to manifesting your most radiant complexion yet? Grabbing a bottle of Glowscreen SPF 40, of course. This shimmery sunscreen is an Allure Best of Beauty winner with a recently-expanded shade range that’ll get you glowing. There are currently four glimmering shades to choose from, including the new additions Golden Hour (a light olive-tan, seen above) and the deep bronze Sunset. On top of its iridescent finish, this pearlescent sunscreen also acts as a dew-enhancing primer that’s spiked with hydrating hyaluronic acid, skin-firming peptides, and antioxidant-rich sea lavender extract.
If you have oily skin, allow us to introduce you to Supergoop’s Mineral Mattescreen SPF 40 — also known as your new mattifying skin-care BFF. This oil-free mineral sunscreen is lightly tinted in order to tone down any white cast and complement a wider range of skin tones, plus it has a mousse-like texture that instantly dries down matte and is grease-free. As an added bonus, it also works well under makeup and contains free radical-fighting antioxidants derived from bamboo extract.
