Hi everyone! How was everyone’s weekend? I’m hoping it was good. 🙂
On the posting schedule today is a quick review on the SuperGoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 which I received in July’s PopSugar Must Have Box. Let’s get to it.
Described as “an innovative three-in-one mist that sets makeup, helps control oil and shine, and refreshes your defense against photoaging UV rays with an uplifting scent of rosemary and mint.”
Rosemary and mint can be irritating for some individuals
Created a burning sensation on my face
Potential health hazard from inhalation of sunscreen
Nozzle doesn’t always spray product on evenly
Overall: As much as I love the concept of this product- refreshing skin/makeup while providing essential SPF protection- it didn’t work for me. Every time I sprayed this product, my face has this uncomfortable burning/tingling sensation that lingered. Also, for most spray-on sunscreen formulations, it needs to be rubbed in for the full effect which is hard to do if you have a face full of makeup. There’s also the concern of potential health hazards with accidental inhalation of the product. I did find that this really kept the oily parts in my skin matte though. In the meantime, I take this with me to theme parks or when doing outdoor activities and use it on my body, making sure to hold my breath while applying. However, once it’s finished I will not be purchasing.
Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts?
