It has to be said: sunscreen is necessary. The only problem is that many of us have probably encountered that sticky, goopy mess that promises sun protection, leaving our faces and bodies with a ghastly white cast. No more. Acclaimed sunscreen brand Supergoop! released the Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 PA +++, with a remarkable formula that promises to protect the face from more than just the sun. How does it hold up against other facial sunscreen products on the market? Let’s find out.
Packaging and Texture
While pots aren’t the most hygienic option when it comes to storing moisturiser, Supergoop’s version is undoubtedly cute. The translucent acrylic on the screw-on cap subtly references the product’s shield-like capabilities, completed with little sun rays. The body feels sturdy though the cap seems a bit on the breakable side; I’d be wary about that. I would also recommend clean fingers or a spatula when scooping the product out of the jar to minimise bacterial contamination.
In terms of texture, the formula claims to be “lightweight, bouncy, and wears beautifully under makeup”. The texture is similar to a hydrating cream; it's a little heavier than gel moisturiser but it absorbs quickly on to the skin. There’s a light fragrance, one that’s common among sunscreens, but nothing too overpowering.
