Beginning in the 2015/16 ski season, the skincare brand Supergoop!, made its sunscreen available to Vail Resorts visitors. Supergoop! let Snowgrrl know about the launch, and sent a little package of products of Supergoop sunscreen for us to test and review. Soon, I started seeing it everywhere! Last winter, Vail had a big basket full of sample size sunscreens at Two Elk lodge. This season, I noticed a Supergoop! dispenser in the ladies’ room at the Keystone mountain-top lodge.
Supergoop! + Vail
Supergoop! has done a great job working with Vail to help visitors learn a good sun protection habit. The sunscreen is available at virtually all of the resorts on the Epic Pass. Let’s face it, playing in the mountains does not come risk-free. Because higher elevations receive a stronger dose of sunshine (yep, even on cloudy days), we need to take steps to protect our delicate skin. “I have been skiing in Colorado my whole life and it wasn’t until about a decade ago that I began to see helmets become the rule rather than the exception. We want to see sun safety also become the norm and we are excited to partner with Vail Resorts to help lead the charge and spread this message,” said Holly Thaggard, who founded Supergoop! together with tennis great Maria Sharapova.
Supergoop! Sunscreen and Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream review
Snowgrrl was fortunate to try Supergoop!’s Daily Correct CC Cream, as well as the brand’s Everyday Sunscreen. The Everyday Sunscreen comes out of the tube white, but spreads on in a transparent layer. Importantly, it did not make my skin break out, as many sunscreens tend to do. I continue to use the Everyday Sunscreen on my hands and body, but I LOVE the Daily Correct CC Cream for my face. The product goes on smoothly, without any stickiness or odor. It claims to “restore skin’s natural radiance and glow.” I appreciate the high SPF (40), silky formula, and healthy, formula free of controversial ingredients. The CC Cream evens out my skin tone, without feeling cake-y or thick. It makes my skin look flawless in all those Instagram photos! I even mix it with moisturizer or a lighter weight face cream for days when I am not on the slopes, because I like the coverage that much.
The verdict: Supergoop sunscreen definitely has earned a permanent place in snowgrrl’s arsenal of sun protection products!
