BASKET OF BLUES I use the Supergoop 100% Mineral Matte Screen every day! It’s a holy grail product that I have repurchased time and time again. It blurs my pores and makes me feel like I don’t need foundation—but most importantly—SPF! No white cast, no greasiness! The texture is light, airy and preps my skin for whatever I want to put on next which is usually a light finishing powder.

Sorry but nooo👎🏾
I heard such great reviews about this matte sunscreen so I decided to give it a try. Well...it is not really meant for my gorgeous melanin complexion. It didn’t blend into my face well and left a whiteish film. The sunscreen even dried me out in some areas. For instance, on my cheeks. Although the texture of this sunscreen is soft and velvety it wasn’t good for my skin. With that being said I don’t recommend it for women who have darker skin tones.

SPF Please
I live where the sun shines virtually every day! Therefore, my routine is photo protective. From my morning Vitamin C + antioxidant serums, to my evening gentle acid exfoliants, I have built my skincare routine around anti-aging preventatives. I recently began working topical retinol at low % into my routine and get monthly Y:ag laser facials to stimulate and encourage collagen production. I’m about to turn 26, and I am very lucky to have plenty of collagen and few wrinkles. I spent a lot of my early 20s breaking the cardinal rules of anti-aging including smoking cigarettes (I’ve been nicotine free for over a year now!) and skipping SPF most days. I even had a brief bout of tanning booth addiction 😟 Now I use spf products as a daily routine. I was committed to Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 until a girl at Ulta recommended StriVectin - Full Screen SPF 30 Clear Finish which has a lower SPF and similar consistency as Unseen. I’ve also tried the Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40AND Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40, neither of which I was really crazy about. The gel/primer consistency of both Unseen Sunscreen and the Strivectin spf are more conducive to my skincare routine and they both sink into my skin without leaving a greasy feeling. Now that I have an office job and wfh, I’m spending about 10 hours/day staring at two huge computer monitors, so I think I’ll stick with the Strivectin screen that also includes Vitamins A, B, C, and Pro-Vitamin D (?) and claims for protect against UVA/UVB, Blue Light (computer screens), and pollution. It’s affordable, comfortable to wear, a little goes a long way, and performs well under makeup when I’m wearing it. The lower spf isn’t a problem for me because I’m not standing in direct sunlight or anything. I think if I had my previous job working outside everyday I’d want a higher spf. Another line of defense I like to fall back on are SPF tinted moisturizers. A while back I had tried the PÜR - 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 which is honestly such a dream. This is a photo of me wearing it on a midday walk. It’s low to medium coverage, buildable, hydrating, and stays put! I don’t have very oily skin or especially dry skin so I feel it is a happy medium for those with normal or combo skin types. By no means is it full coverage. I slap this on (using my fingers to apply) if I’m planning to go for a walk in the sunshine or on a hike, in addition to my base layer of SPF. Of course, the best preventative is keeping the sun off your face at all costs, so you’ll usually see me on the trails with one of my favorite floppy hats, or sometimes if I’m feeling jazzy - my Bluestone Sunshield (see a few posts back). Do you wear SPF every day? Have you made any lifestyle changes for the sake of beauty/anti-aging? Share your tips or thoughts below!

This sunscreen is exactly as they market it to be! It is marketed to be a waitlist, colorless, St. Louis, oil free sunscreen and you can use it as a primer under your make up as well. They do not call it unseen sunscreen for nothing. You literally can’t tell that you have sunscreen. As a woman of color it is very hard for me to find a sunscreen that does not leave a white cast on my skin. I used this since the beginning of the summer. It reminds me of the porefessional primer mixed with milk Hydro grip primer. It’s very smooth and it fills in pores. I have recommend this sunscreen to so many of my family and friends it’s ridiculous! Does sunscreen cost $32 and I do believe it’s worth it especially for women of color.

alllll the summer vibes with s
alllll the summer vibes with supergoop you should be wearing sunscreen everyday, not just in summer! i’m seriously LOVING the supergoop unseen sunscreen lately and i’ve been wearing it every day. i used to use a different clear sunscreen (from a brand i am vvvv loyal to🙊) buttttt the supergoop formula is way smoother & you get more product for a better price. like that’s a win win for everyone. my favorite every day sunscreen right now is supergoop & my favorite tinted sunscreen is the drunkelephant umbra tinte!

Sunscreen as my anti-aging go to?!?
Sunscreen as my anti-aging go to?!?
I personally don’t specifically purchase anti-aging agents, but I do consider sunscreen an anti-aging product. Sunscreen is a MUST and I’ve currently been enjoying the supergoop unseen sunscreen. Opposed to their matte screen, this product is a clear color and a more slick/oily consistency. It’s super easy to rub in and blends right in perfectly with my darker complexion. I’ve been using this for the past two months and I apply it before my makeup. In addition, this sunscreen sits well under my makeup application. My only issue is that since this product is a bit more oily, I have to set my makeup with more matte finish products. However, I tend to do that anyway. I actually already have a backup of this product, because I’ve been enjoying it so much! I do recommend this product for those looking for a good sunscreen, but also because sunscreen is an essential step in preventing aging.Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

TAHOE//
▫️Boscia Cactus Water
TAHOE// ▫️Boscia Cactus Water Cream ▫️Bliss Drench & Quench ▫️Bliss Mint Chip Mania Mask ▫️Supergoop 100% Mineral Matte Screen ... We just got back from a ski trip in Tahoe. I always feel like my skin, face and whole body basically start to dehydrate and flake as soon as we get off the plane. Any product that can keep my skin glowing and as far away from being angry, red or raisin-ish is my forever favorite. Pictured are my LOVES from this trip! ... Supergoop! Mineral and Matte has been amazing. I’m not one to do my hair and makeup before a day of snow play and skiing. This sunscreen provided minimal coverage and at SPF 40 it was exactly what I needed. It made my skin look even and kept it from any sun damage while out and about on the mountain. I highly recommend!! ... Back in my every day life I use this as a primer and it works really well for me. SPF is everythiiiingggg!

Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I would never really where sunscreen, no matter how many times my mom told me to 🥴 smh lol so I started looking into sunscreens and found this one online, I really liked all the reviews and decided to give it a try and purchase it. ($32) This sunscreen is a lightweight, scent-less sunscreen with SPF 40. It’s for normal, dry, combination and oily skin. One thing that stood out to me the most was that it has Red Algae that helps protect against blue light emitted by electronic devices! This is a great sunscreen used as a primer if you wear make up as well. I don’t use make up so I just use this after my moisturizer 🧖🏼‍♀️ My overall experience is great! You honestly don’t need much to cover your whole face. Just a dime size of it. It’s not greasy or thick it’s so light weight and absorbs onto your face so fast. I would definitely recommend this to others that wear make up and also don’t wear make up. It’s light weight and doesn’t irritate your skin.
