We Found A Clear Sunscreen For Melanin Skin

The Beauté Study | We Tried Supergoop Sunscreen 01

Suncare is an important part of your routine. It can come in the form of protection in sunscreen, setting spray, setting powder, and more. Protecting your skin from the sun is another form of anti-aging for your skin. One of the newest sunscreen brands on the market is called Supergoop! They have a wide range of products from liquid sunscreen to setting powder sunscreen. We decided to put it to the test with their All-Star Kit and their Supergoop Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder.

(Update 2020: They do not have the All-Star Kit any more but, they have the Jet Set Kit.)


Supergoop! Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 PA +++

This moisturizer is a light, creamy formula that is perfect to complete your skincare routine. It does not have a heavy sunscreen smell and it does not make your makeup start piling after applied. We used this product first then placed the Unseen Sunscreen on top to seal the deal.

Daily Sunscreen

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40+

Out of the All-Star Kit, this sunscreen is the winner. It is a matte formula that is perfect for melanin loved skin and skin on the lighter side of the spectrum. It does not have a white or purple caste. Plus, it is perfect for traveling and patch testing to see if your skin likes it.

Setting Powder

Supergoop! Invincible 100% Mineral Setting Powder SPF 45

This is a full-size product that does not come with the All-Star Kit. It is great for placing sunscreen on top of your makeup and mid-day touch-ups. We recommend using the translucent shade for an all year round usage. You can get a refill to purchase separately.

Setting Spray

Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50

This refresh setting mist is good after a regular setting spray like the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray. It has a mint-like scent that can be strong. It only takes two to three sprays to get your entire face. Plus, it is perfect to carry in your purse or travel makeup bag.

Supergoop is one of the great brands that are providing suncare on the market. They have a range of offerings that benefit many different skin types. Supergoop has products that are perfect for melanin-loved skin that does not give their skin an ashy look.
