    Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50

    Darker skin tones are at an advantage in the sun, because the naturally higher levels of melanin provide an automatic defense against the chances of burning and prevent a whole host of lobster jokes.

    I don’t know about you but that makes me and my skin tone a little more lazy, and a little more thoughtless about applying sun protection. This is no longer a sin with Supergoop’s Defense Refresh Setting Mist.

    Not only does the 3-in-1 mattifying mist deliver UV photo-ageing protection, but sets make-up and controls oil. This weightless formula is infused with antioxidant-rich rosemary and mint to help improve skin’s complexion and deliver an invigorating essence.
