As of 5 o'clock today, I will be on vacation time, and I'm so excited about it. I haven't taken an extended vacation for quite some time and let me tell you, I really need it! I don't know how life gets so crazy, but you've gotta take that time to remind yourself to slow down and catch your breath! Soon Adam and I will be with my family biking through the pines! While packing for a trip isn't the most fun thing in the world, but it's so important to pack essentials like sunscreen when you're headed for adventures in the sun!
Supergoop! has some of the most fun and innovative options I've seen when it comes to sunscreen. Now more than ever, I make sure I'm protected from sun damage. It's just not worth the consequences later on! I think of those years back in college when I laid in a tanning bed and it makes me cringe. Raise your hand if you now rock a faux tan!
I hate using sunscreen mainly because it always feels greasy, sticky and overall leaves me a streaky mess! I got to try out a few of Supergoop's newest products and I'm so glad I did! I've completely changed my tune. Each product, while equal in quality, is so different and oh-so effective.
I'm a huge fan of their Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil, it gives my skin that wonderful dewy look. The spray nozzle works really well, but I also make sure to give it a good rub into my skin for a nice even application. It's got a whopping 50 SPF, which is great for my fair skin. It contains Meadowfoam seed oil, which reinforces your skin’s natural lipid barrier, enhancing moisturization and helping to prevent moisture loss due to dehydration from the sun’s rays. After a few hours my skin still feels soft, smooth and moisturized.
Something I always forget about when it comes to sun protection are my lips. While I'm normally rocking a shade of red lipstick, I love Supergoop's Perk Up Lip & Cheek Treat for when I don't want to work too hard at applying the right amount tint on my lips. It's got 40 SPF and is a universal, buildable pinky shade that makes it perfect for lips and cheeks alike.
The Super Power Sunscreen Mousse is such an interesting concept for sunscreen, but really fun to use! It's light as air, has blue sea kale to provide antioxidant protection, and a blend of shea butter, olive and avocado oils that leaves your skin nourished and moisturized. Going in the water? No problem. It's also water resistant for up to 80 minutes.
Last but certainly not least, is something I don't leave the house without applying. Supergoop's new Defense Refresh Setting Mist is the last step in my makeup application, and such an important one! Seriously, I use it every. single. day. This multi-tasking product provides a matte finish mist that sets make-up, controls oil, and delivers UV protection. It's effortless to use, and I even had Adam use it when we were in Arizona because the rays were so intense I didn't want him to get burned! I've been using their setting spray with rosemary in it for about a year now, but this new spray nozzle delivers a finer mist that takes the cake!
Thanks so much for the goodies, Supergoop! I love all of these products – they're packed and ready for my trip! It's never been easier for me to feel protected from the sun's rays and love a product so much!
