After being persuaded by a barrage of Instagram influencers, I decided to try this Supergoop sunscreen to see if it was really worth the hype. Promising “dewy, glowy skin that isn’t greasy or oily,” Supergoop claims this product doubles as a broad-spectrum SPF 40 sunscreen and “make-up gripping” primer. Its ingredient list packs a punch with hydrating hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 and niacinamide. It sounds perfect for someone like me, who—despite stifling southern summers—still wears makeup.

I tried this product while on vacation in sunny Florida (in the midst of a heat wave, nonetheless). I was wary that it would provide me adequate protection for a day of baking on the beach, but I did slather it on for walking around town and eating lunch outside. I applied the product under my makeup, and I was pleased it gave my skin a pearlescent shine—similar to my other makeup primers that don’t contain SPF.

After using the product, my skin didn’t burn at all—a rarity, as after spending a day in the sun, I usually get a bit pink on the cheeks and nose. A week after using the product, though, I did experience a small breakout around my T-zone, but it’s hard to say if Supergoop was the culprit or if it was something else.

Overall, I would recommend this product for anyone who wants a product that pulls double-duty as a makeup primer and sunscreen and doesn’t want to ruin all that contouring with visible sun lotion. It was more than I would typically pay for a sunscreen product, but its ingredients really did give me a glow.
