A commonly asked question I get asked whenever review a lip balm or lip treatment would be, “Does it contain SPF?!” Also common? The fact we get really busy protecting our faces and sometimes forget our neck (for the love of beauty please don’t forget your neck!)! Fact, no one wants to walk around with finely lined lips one day so now is a good a time as any to start protecting them.
Supergoop! Shine-On Lip Screen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($22) is basically a soft, shiny topcoat that you can apply on top of your favorite lipstick and it instantly creates an invisible UV Shield. Whether or not you run around the house shouting “UV SHIELD ACTIVATED!” after application is entirely up to you. I would, just sayin’. I would also create a cape out of a towel and put my hands on my hips as I said it to evoke my inner super hero.
This is a clear top coat and it provides a water-resistant finish while protecting your lips from the sun. According to SuperGoop’s brand founder,”Dermatologists say that lip gloss is similar to holding a magnifying glass on your lips and can intensify UV rays.”
Whaaaa?! Great now my lipgloss is a magnet for harmful sun rays! Note to self either buy some Supergoop! Shine-On Lip Screen or stop wearing super shiny lipgloss in the sun!
Supergoop! Shine-On Lip Screen is available now to protect your lips at Sephora.com.
