Summer Suncare Essentials: Supergoop! Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil and Defense Refresh Setting Mist

Have you ever tried a deluxe sized sampling of a beauty product, fall absolutely in love with it and realize you just have to have it in its full size counterpart? Such is the case with two products from Supergoop’s line of sunscreen products–The Supergoop! Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil* and Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary.*

My first introduction to their line began a few years ago with my purchase of Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit, which included Supergoop’s Sun-Deyfying Sunscreen Oil in a deluxe sized version. Fast forward to Sephora’s 2016 Sun Safety Kit offering, which includes a deluxe size sample of their Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary. I always try to incorporate SPF into my skincare routine. Since I live in Southern California, the weather is typically warm all year round so a daily regimen that includes some form of SPF protection is important to me. 

The Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary*, $28 is described as an innovate three -in-one mist that sets makeup, helps control oil and shine, and refreshes your defense against photo aging UV rays with an uplifting scent of rosemary and mint. 

The mist has an SPF of (50! ) which is quite incredible. After applying my makeup, I spritz the mist as a final step before heading out. In terms of application, it’s a piece of cake. It’s important to note that you must always shake the bottle vigorously prior to each use as it allows the UV protective and makeup setting shield ingredients to be evenly emulsified and distributed. I hold the spray about 10 inches away from my face and lightly spritz it all over. The Rosemary scent is quite refreshing and does dissipate quickly once sprayed. I usually reapply the mist after every 2-3 hours as reinforcement. The result is a nicely, even, matte finish that keeps my makeup intact with the added benefit of sun protection.

One thing that I want to quickly point out is the cute packaging. Upon opening the box, you are greeted with a “Hello Sunshine” salutation which I think is a very nice touch. 

I am very pleased with this product. My skin type is normal, so for those of you who have oily-combination skin, I think this would work well for you. Not only does it keep my makeup intact, I get the benefits of strong triple grade SPF protecton. I’ve been using the spray non-stop this summer. 

The Supergoop Sunscreen Oil with Meadowfoam*, $34 is officially described as an anti-oxidant rich, broad SPF 50 sunscreen oil featuring meadow foam and organ oils. It also features a spray top and the formula is truly one of a kind. Though it’s an oil, the formula feels lightweight and non-greasy and absorbs nicely onto my skin once applied. It also includes the natural essential oil blends of pomegranate, citrus, and calendula which is an added plus. 

My boyfriend and I have been using this Sunscreen Oil for years. We recently took it with us to our recent trip to Cabo,  you can find the post here. It’s lightweight, non greasy, applies easily and offers the sun protection we need. I would highly recommend you give this a try.
