One of the perks of being someone that writes about products for a living is getting to try many, many different things. For a while, I was trying to find the best sunscreen that met all of my criteria. I needed something that would not make my face breakout, that didn’t make me look shiny (I have oily/combination skin), and didn’t leave a white cast. It’s a tall order, but Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen fulfilled it.
I previously tried the Vitamin C cohort of this sunscreen that I loved, but I found that I wanted to be a bit more in control of my SPF. Unseen Sunscreen is a lightweight, breathable chemical SPF formula that feels weightless on my skin. It’s silicone-y, with a slightly yellow tint and basically no scent.
It is the perfect base for putting makeup over and doesn’t make me feel greasy the way other sunscreens do—I have fairly oily skin and this sunscreen not only keeps my skin safe but also keeps it matte.
