For me, it’s been a constant struggle both remembering to put on sunscreen and liking a sunscreen enough to want to apply it. Living in sunny San Diego, I know the UV rays are slowly destroying my skin. So, I’m always on the hunt for a sunscreen I love. Recently, (I don’t know what’s taken me so long to discover Supergoop) I came across a sunscreen for my eyelids as I was in Nordstrom. Now, it’s all I use since it looks like an eyeshadow with SFP 30 mixed in!
Shimmershade is the first eyeshadow with SPF 30, available in four fun shades! It’s a cream eyeshadow that keeps your eyelids protected, thanks to a hybrid of mineral & clean chemical actives that protect from UV rays. The best part is that it glides on blends perfectly without creasing, flaking or fading. It’s easy to use with your fingers which is how I apply it every morning.
Ladies, it only gets better. I love shimmer. It’s like the founder, Holly Thaggard, read my mind! She created a sunscreen with a glow and I apply it everywhere, including my face. I love the way it looks on my arms, legs, face, neck… basically everywhere. But what I love even more is the story of why Holly created this sunscreen.
Several years ago, she was visiting with a group of oncologists and dermatologist in New York and learned a very unfortunate trend: One of the fastest growing places skin cancer is found on women is the back of their legs. I’ll admit I’ve never have put on sunscreen on the back on legs. All that has changed since getting my hands on Glowscreen.
Glowscreen Body features light-reflecting minerals that help amplify your natural glow, while nourishing emollients leave the skin looking healthy and luminous. Imagine your daily lotion mixed with a glowy highlighter with major skincare benefits.
I would be remised if I didn’t highlight the woman behind all these great products by Supergoop. Holly Thaggard started her journey with this company in a classroom by getting SPF pumps into schools in Texas to better protect our youth. A hero in my book!
This has also been a personal mission after a friend in her late twenties was diagnosed with melanoma, Thaggard was determined to help fight skin cancer. She set out to change sunscreen’s reputation by giving hers a playful name, Supergoop!
Since 2007, Supergoop has been the leader in developing feel good clean sunscreen, that isn’t heavy or greasy. Also, by excluding oxybenzone, a common but controversial chemical that may have negative effects on health and the environment, including our dwindling coral reefs. Supergoop generated $40 million in revenue in 2018.
