Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Review

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen Brown SkinWhen it comes to your skincare routine, sunscreen is the most important step. It protects against environmental aggressors such as sun damage (UVB + UVA rays) and pollution, which causes the first signs aging. I must admit that I haven’t been the best about protecting my skin from the environment. I haven’t had the best luck with finding an SPF that was effective but also transparent and matte on my combination skin.

After reading about the Supergoop Unseen Suncreen, I decided to order it online ahead of my trip to sunny Miami. Supergoop Unseen Suncreen is a broad spectrum SPF 40 that claims to be water & sweat resistant and protect against UVA, UVB, infrared, and blue light (light from tech screens).

As a woman of color, I had to try this “invisible” sunscreen out for myself and see if it could become a staple in my routine.

Read on to find out how it performed on my medium-deep skin.

The Supergoop Unseen Suncreen has a light yellow tint but is completely clear when applied. The texture reminds me of a silicone primer like the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. I love how well it plays under makeup and although I don’t think this makes me oily, I wouldn’t say that it helps my makeup last longer either. I still use a foundation primer, since I am prone to shine after a few hours. This is also perfect for when I’m going makeup-free.

At $32, this clean, smoothing, oil-free sunscreen just may become a holy grail in my skincare routine. I’ll be posting updates on my skin now that I am getting serious about my glowy, anti-aging routine.
