Spray Is So Over: The World's Most User-Friendly Sunscreen Is This New Mousse
Sunscreen: We know it's one of the most important steps in our morning routines, regardless of the weather. But we're also guilty of occasionally skipping it—we won't be outside that long, we tell ourselves. A few hours later, we're red as lobsters. Or years down the line: major sun spots and wrinkles.
But can you blame us for skipping this crucial step? Most SPF formulas feel thick and heavy, which is exactly what you don't want if you're going to be spending the day under the hot sun. Thankfully, Supergoop is here to help make sun protection as painless and breezy as possible with their latest innovation.
The brand's new launch is the Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50. Yes, we said mousse—a complete departure from the pasty-white lotions we're used to slathering on. Lightweight, fast-absorbing, and totally mess-free, this sunscreen also promises antioxidant-rich hydration thanks to ingredients like blue sea kale, natural shea butter, olive oil, and avocado oil. It's as much a moisturizer as a sun protectant, all in one fluffy foam.
Supergoop recommends squirting out one golf ball–size dollop for each arm, two for each leg, and one more for your face and neck. As with all sunscreens, be sure to apply it 15 minutes before exposure and reapply every two hours. The formula is water-resistant, but apply it more frequently if you're swimming or sweating in order to ensure maximum, foolproof protection.
The brand also launched a setting powder sunscreen, perfect for oily skin types who dread the summer heat. Who said sun protection was boring?
