Beauty Review: Supergoop's Glow Screen SPF 40

Hello, lovelies! I hope you all have been doing well! For today's post, I wanted to do a beauty review on a new product that I've been trying out. While wearing an SPF all year is important, I feel that this necessity is elevated during the summer - especially with how intense the heat has been lately. So, is the Glow Screen worth the hype? Let's find out!

So I generally feel that packaging is lower on the list of priorities when it comes to beauty products. However, I also feel that as the price of a product goes up, the packaging should be more elevated, as well. For this product, I feel like the squeeze tube is actually a good choice for this item. It ensures that you get the most out of the product and it is ideal for traveling.


This product is chock full of great, skin-healthy goodies to go along with the active sunscreen ingredients. These include hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin B5 for hydration and elasticity. Other key players are cocoa peptides to shield against free radicals, sea lavender for antioxidant protection, and radish root ferment filtrate as a natural antimicrobial preservative. It's also comforting to know that these ingredients and the final product are reef-safe, vegan, and are not tested on animals.


This is a daily sunscreen that can be applied generously and is generally meant to be used as the last step in your skincare routine prior to makeup. However, since this has such a gorgeous, luminous finish, I typically don't feel the need to apply any additional BB creams or foundations. I usually brush on a bit of translucent powder and am good to go!


I really like the way this melts into my skin and leaves a beautiful, dewy look without sacrificing UVA/UVB protection. I know that my face is definitely protected from the sun's rays while using this product. It's great to use on it's own with a bit of powder (if desired), or as a primer under a BB cream or lightweight foundation. This is a really quick way to create that "glow from within" look in one easy step. Also, I haven't had any issues with this sunscreen causing breakouts or dryness. In fact, it has seemed to work really well with my skin overall (I have oily/combination skin).


While the product is very good, I think the value could be increased by either 1) lowering the price or 2) increasing the amount of product. $36 is a bit on the higher end for a 1.7oz tube, in my opinion.  For me, personally, if this was $10 less or had another ounce of product to give, then my opinion on this aspect would definitely be changed. Also, this product does only come in two shades (bronze and champagne). While I know that sunscreens are meant to blend in, since this product leaves a dewy finish, I wonder if it would work as well on very deep or very light skin tones.


Higher than preferred price aside, I definitely enjoy using this product and plan on repurchasing once I have used up my current tube. Its strong SPF, clean ingredients, and luminous finish have definitely won me over.  If it's within your budget, I absolutely recommend giving this product a try!

I hope you all enjoyed this beauty review! This product has been so popular lately and I can definitely see why, even with the price. I'd love to hear from you guys about this. Have you tried Supergoop's Glow Screen? Is it on your to-buy list, or are not into it? Let me know in the comments. Until next time, lovelies!

  6. This review is very detailed, I love it! Really gives us a good idea of whether we would like the sunscreen. The fact that it comes in only two shades is a shame, though it does have some good points to it too. :)

  8. I've heard so many good things about Supergoop, but i'm with you 36 is a bit much for such a small amount!
