Confession: I don't use sunscreen as often as I should. Yes, I'm very good at protecting my face and neck, but my body is often neglected… due to laziness. I find the idea of slathering on body lotion (which I am very committed to) followed by a sunscreen every morning to be rather troublesome. But with the Supergoop Play 100% Mineral Lotion, I might skip the former and launch right into the latter. Powered with green algae, the reef-safe (yay!) formula is just as moisturising as it is defensive of the skin. Frankly, I don't mind the thin layer of grease — especially when I notice water sliding off my body faster, proving the efficacy of its water-resistance.
On the other hand, I imagine people tanner than I am (which is most of the population, to be frank) to be concerned with the white cast. The lotion disappeared into my skin well enough without me having to work it too hard into my complexion, but I am curious as to how it sits on my tanner Buro. Beauty Clubbers's complexions.
The Supergoop 100% Mineral Sunscreen Stick is a joy to have around. No white cast here, which is a win, and the formula is far less slick and absorbs much quicker into the skin. It's not marketed as ocean-friendly, which is a bummer, but as a touch-up stick which fits into my tiny palms for on-the-go application, this roll-on is a no brainer. You may also opt to use this mini sun sidekick on the pucker — a relief for someone like me who is a little bit obsessed with lip balms (I'm a huge fan of the Acai Fusion Lip Balm). Without a doubt, I will be bringing it to my Christmas trip to Sri Lanka.
