Summertime is officially here! With the sun high in the sky and temperatures soaring into the 100s, we all need a great sunscreen to wear when outside! I wasn't sure what to buy this year and when searching on the internet I found a great article mentioning Supergoop! After contacting the company, they sent me several products to try out!
What is Supergoop!?
Dr. T's Supergoop! is committed to providing safe sunscreen for children and adults alike and can be used for everyday protection! Each and every little ingredient has been tested and meets stringent standards for safety and effectiveness.There are a variety of different lotions and sunscreens to meet your specific needs. Oh, and did I mention that Supergoop is made of non-toxic ingredients and a free of sulfates, phthalates, synthetic dyes, fragrances, proplyene, glycol, non-particles, and padimate 0? They take safety very seriously and also prohibit testing of their products on animals! What more could you ask for?
I received the 30+ Sunscreen Swipes with Zinc for Sensitive Skin (8 ct), a SPF 30+ Quickstick w/ Vitamin C for face and hands, and the SPF 30+ Everyday UV Protection Lotion for Faces and Hands. We put them all to the test last week at the beach! My entire family volunteered as guinea pigs: my niece, nephew, mom, dad, myself, and my 2 sons. Several of us have sensitive skin, allergies to PABA, and my red-headed son has very fair skin so, we knew if Supergoop! worked for us, it should work for anyone.
The first day, we used the SPF 30+ Everyday UV Protection Lotion for Faces and Hands. I admit that I, in the past, haven't used sunscreen the way I should because I can't stand the feel of it. You know that oily, heavy feeling it leaves on your skin? I just feel icky the entire time it is on my skin and can't wait to take a shower. I am happy to report that I didn't feel that way at all with the SPF 30+ Lotion! It really felt like lotion, smooth and even moisturizing as I put it on. As it can be used for ages 4 months and older, even Liam was able to try it out! However, Liam has super-sensitive preemie skin so, the lotion did break out his belly a bit, which happens almost every time I put anything on him.
Due to Liam's sensitive skin, I tried out the Sunscreen Swipes for Sensitive Skin on him the next day. I also used them on myself and my 3 year old, Josiah. I was actually a little worried about using a wipe to apply sunscreen, wondering if it would adequately cover my body without streaking or missing places, but my worries were laid to rest! The wipes were awesome and a major time-saver! Plus, Liam did not break out at all. That is the biggest feat of all. I was absolutely amazed. My only complaint about the swipes is the packaging, which is just like a pack of travel wipes with the resealable sticky top instead of one that snaps shut. My 3 year old ripped it off and I had to look around everywhere for it so the wipes wouldn't dry up. I think a snap-top would work much better.
As for the Quickstick, I keep it in my purse for on-the-go needs. We traveled around so much at the beach participating in outdoor activities so it was nice to have an extra sunscreen with us for touch-ups. The Quickstick, of course, worked just as well as the others.
I definitely recommend Supergoop! for everyone, especially those with sensitive skin. Definitely give the sunscreen swipes a try, too, especially if you have a child(ren). Those fit perfectly in a diaper bag or purse, and are great for on-the-go families! I know I will be purchasing more of those in the future.
Supergoop! has all products available on their online store.
They are also available at several other online retailers!
