Side by Side: Supergoop SPF – Self Tanning Sunscreen Mousse and City Sunscreen Serum

The days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter, so Supergoop is on our minds – as well as on our skin!  Everyone needs to wear sunscreen, and thankfully it’s no longer like the old days when SPF products were smelly and left a nasty white cast to the skin.  Now there are wonderful, thoughtful options available for getting your SPF and getting beautiful at the same time.  Today Lisa and Marcia tell you all about their picks from Supergoop, a fabulous line with a funny name.

Lisa’s side:

Here’s a riddle for you:  How does someone get a great tan AND avoid the harmful rays of the sun at the same time?   Answer:  Supergoop Self-Tanning Sunscreen Mousse ($38)!

Supergoop Self-Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

The Self- Tanning Sunscreen Mousse has an SPF of 20.  Not only does it provide sun protection, it also gives you a gradual faux-tan.  Normally I apply self tanner and then put sunscreen over it, so this combo products saves a step (and some money!).

love the super hygenic top!

It has my favorite fantastic hygenic top.  The product is protected from light, and it squeezes out so that no dirt or bacteria will contaminate the rest of the lotion.  Love it!!

Multi-purpose products always make me happy!

Not only do you get sun protection and a faux tan at the same time, you get a beautiful daily moisturizer.  This sophisticated moisturizer has Parsol, SP3 Complex, and Vitamin E to battle free radicals. As a self tanner, the color develops gradually, so if you use it as your daily sunscreen you will always have a natural, healthy looking glow.  This isn’t for getting a really deep tanned look. And as sun protection, it has broad spectrum UV protection with high water resistance.

The mousse is actually a light lotion that melts right into skin.  It smells like cucumbers, although the scent isn’t overpowering and it fades quickly.  You just can’t beat two products in one – less time is spent applying lotions, less money is spent on products, and one application provides twice the benefit!!

Marcia’s side:

Lisa is always talking about Supergoop! It can be embarrassing when you are out for lunch and someone talks “supergoop”.  But once I got my hands on Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum I realized what was getting her so excited.

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum

In some ways Lisa and I are like two peas in a pod but when it comes to skintone that’s where we differ. I’m like Snow White and she’s like the dwarves. She loves to be outside and loves that sunkisssed look. I believe in the power of air conditioning and my very fair skin (and obviously fairy tales). Therefore I need a great sunscreen that’s not going to leave a funny cast on my skin; one that doesn’t have a fragrance; and one that doesn’t interfere with my foundation. Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum to the rescue just like the handsome prince.

love the packaging

I too love the hygenic packaging. The pump is easy to use and I don’t end up wasting the sunscreen since I can control the amount that comes out. This is the perfect sunscreen for my face. It’s not too thick yet it provides SPF 30+ protection that also moisturizes. It was created for normal to dry skin to help protect against the premature signs of aging.

The texture of this is so light. It’s between a serum and a cream. It’s not loose like a serum but it’s not heavy like a cream. It blends in quickly so that you can finish putting on any other makeup over it.

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum comes in two sizes – $42 for the full size or $20 for a 20 ml travel size that’s perfect to keep with you. Snow White and Marcia approve of this sunscreen and we believe you will too.

Supergoop is available on their website as well as Sephora, Nordstrom, Dermstore and a slew of other shops that know quality when they come across it.
