Supergoop! Mineral Matte Screen Review

Supergoop! has been getting attention for its face and body sunscreen with SPF, so I decided to give the Supergoop! Mineral Matte Screen a try.

Overall, I’m not too impressed with the Mineral Matte Screen with SPF 40 (SPF sunscreen and primer) by Supergoop!

At $38 for 1.5oz, I expected the weightless sunscreen by Supergoop! to seep into my skin instantly like my favorite Laura Mercier primer with SPF.

Overall, I give Supergoop! Mineral Matte Screen SPF 40 a rating of 2/5 stars.

If you are searching for a great sunscreen for your face, I'd recommend EltaMD instead.

If you are searching for a tinted moisturizer with SPF, I'd recommend Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 instead.

Cons: What I Didn't Love 

Here are the reasons I didn’t love the Supergoop Mattescreen Sunscreen with SPF 40.

1. Supergoop! Is Silky (In a Bad Way)

Supergoop! glides on, but felt like a layer of silicone on top of my skin.

2. Supergoop! Mineral Mattescreen Sunscreen Doesn’t Sink In

Supergoop! SPF 40 felt like a smooth, sliding, velvety gel that sat on top of my skin.

3. Supergoop! Is Colored

 I didn’t care for the tinted color in the Supergoop! Mineral Mattescreen Sunscreen.

It didn’t make me look tan, but instead ended up being a tinted, colored cream that I worried would rub off on my white shirt.

4. Supergoop! is Pricey

For a fourth the price, I’d recommend going with a primer with SPF 30 in it.

I personally LOVE the Laura Mercier Primer with SPF 30.

Definitely not greasy like most sunscreens.”

Does not leave a whitecast and doesn't feel icky.”

Supergoop! Matte Screen VS. Other Foundations with SPF

Women also compared Supergoop! to other primers and tinted moisturizers with SPF.

Supergoop! versus Bare Minerals Powder Foundation

“This is a better primer than the Bare Minerals I’ve been using”

Supergoop! versus Coola Mineral Face Matte Tinto Sunscreen with SPF 30

“Similar in feel to the Coola SPF, but less greasy.”

“Supergoop! is a great upgrade (SPF-wise) from Cool, but not for those with fair-to-light complexions…I’ll be returning to Coola, which is perfect for me.”

“I use this on top of Coola tinted sunscreen as my “makeup”. The two together are magic in my skin.”

Supergoop! versus Laura Mercier tinted sunscreen

“Laura Mercier offers more coverage than this (Supergoop!), but Laura Mercier gets very shiny and oily (for my combination skin).”

Supergoop! Matte Screen versus Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40

“If you have dark skin, I would suggest using the Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40.”

“I really wanted to love this but it was so drying! The Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 was a much better fit.”

“Both are lightweight and don't have that typical greasy sunscreen feel, but are different as well. Unseen is a colorless smoothing primer with a natural finish, which is great for under makeup. This mineral one is tinted (I have an olive skin tone so it's not too dark for me) with more of a matte finish, which is awesome for days that I choose to give my skin a break and not wear face makeup.”

Supergoop! versus Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA+

“I used to use Murad (priced at $68 vs. $34), but wanted a cheaper alternative. Supergoop! (and Murad) are both 100% mineral based.”

“I switched to this after Murad stopped making its oil-control mattifier.”

Supergoop! versus Benefit POREfessional Primer

"This has the same texture as Benefit Porefessional primer, but (Supergoop!) also has SPF.”

“The texture and tint of this sunscreen is almost identical to the Benefit POREfessional Primer (the blue tube), except (Supergoop!) feels slightly more oily.”

Supergoop! versus Drunk Elephant tinted mineral sunscreen

“Super Goop was a clear winner for me because it has a matte finish…If you prefer a dewier look, get the Drunk Elephant. If you like a mattified pore look, get the Super Goop!”
