What I’m slathering on all year and especially on National Sunscreen Day
Supergoop glow screen, you’ll know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, is my favorite SPF skincare find this year. After over 40 years of slathering on sunscreen, minus a few years of stupidity in my 20’s, this Supergoop sunscreen is my new holy grail. Since it’s national sunscreen day on May 28th I figured now would be a good time to share what SPF I’m using right now. As well as to show you the difference between the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen and Glow Screen and do a little demo and review of the new Supergoop Poof Part Powder. A mineral sunscreen powder to protect your scalp and especially your part. But does it work? Is it sticky? I’ve shared everything in the video below.
I got into Supergoop a couple of years ago when I bought their SPF setting spray for vacation in Italy and have been exploring the range ever since. I’m a bit of a sunscreen addict. I wear it year round after too much tanning in my late teens and twenties living in Portugal and the Caribbean led to premature sunspots. I’m thankful to microneedling and retinol for fixing that!
Is Supergoop cruelty free?
Supergoop! is Leaping Bunny-certified cruelty-free. We’ve never conducted, commissioned or paid for any tests on animals when it comes to ingredients, formulations or finished products, and we promise never to do so in the future!Supergoop.com
Most of their products are also vegan with the exception of their mineral sunscreen stick and Sunnyscreen mineral stick which both have beeswax.

- Supergoop Glow Screen SPF40 PA+++ For the Face
I’ve been using Supergoop unseen sunscreen since last Summer. I loved it glides on and makes skin super smooth so foundation glides on. It also doesn’t make me break out, isn’t too thick, doesn’t leave a white residue behind and is also a primer. I like multi-tasking products to save time. Also, so that I don’t end up like an oil slick with too many products that slide in the Summer.
When I saw Supergoop Glow Screen SPF40 I did a lot of research and reading of reviews before deciding to give this version of their face sunscreen a try. I’ve also used Supergoop’s SPF setting spray before and like how it smelled and worked plus it’s a cruelty-free brand. I ended up choosing Supergoop glow screen for those reasons. As well as the fact it’s non-irritating, vegan, reef safe, is an SPF and primer in one and leaves a pearlescent glow.
A little goes a long way with Supergoop Glow Screen. It’s non-greasy and creates a really lovely golden glow. I’ve also been using it on non-makeup days as it takes away redness and non makeup days. As it creates a more even skin tone and texture and is such a gorgeous dewy primer.
I did try glow screen for the body and wasn’t impressed. That was less glow and more glitter especially when you get in the sunlight. Not really the look I was going for even in Vegas. I use Coola SPF spray on my body as it’s not sticky and is a cruelty-free brand.
- Supergoop! SPF setting spray
This full size version of the Supergoop setting spray is sold out everywhere. However, the mini one which is the perfect travel size or for your purse is still available. I prefer this to the SPF setting powder below for when I want to keep my makeup light and glowing. Then I use the powder for when I’m out to lunch or pre dinner drinks and want to look more done.
- Supergoop (Re)setting 100% mineral powder SPF 35 PA+++
I’ve tried a couple of colored versions of mineral SPF powders and always come back to Supergoop’s translucent one. They tend to end up less cakey by the end of the day than some colored versions do. They’re also great for throwing in your bag for keeping your SPF topped up throughout the way and getting rid of shine without wrecking your makeup by trying to use a liquid SPF over makeup.
My latest SPF protection discovery | Supergoop Poof Part Powder review
The latest SPF product I just tried is Supergoop Poof mineral part powder SPF 35 PA+++. Even though I’m big into sun hats, there’s times you can’t wear them e.g. on tours or lunch in the city, and that’s when I seem to burn where I part my hair.
The product is tiny and at first I thought it was overpriced for the size. However, a little goes a long way. It’s also a multi-tasking product as it’s also a dry-shampoo. Which means cutting down on what I need to pack for our Summer vacation. I’ve also been preferring powder dry shampoos to aerosols as well; one for the environment and one for my lungs! The Poof part powder does have some fall out though so jump back in the shower (with it off) or do it over a towel to help prevent having a mess to clean up.
If you have darker hair, this should be fine for you as I didn’t notice a white or grey residue on my dark roots!
Supergoop Poof Part Powder is clean, vegan and oil free and my husband will probably end up using it too. I never use regular SPF on my scalp as it just turns it into a sticky oil slick.
