Supergoop Now at Bellacara!

There is never enough variety when it comes to sun protection. Liquids, creams, sprays, powders…the more the better in my opinion. Layering sunscreen is a good habit to get into. I thought we were well covered when it came to sun protection options. I mean, I love Coola and Skinceuticals and have been known to use the Cane+Austin Prime and Protect like my life depended on it. But this summer, I’ve had a number of people asking for mineral sunscreens in a dust-on form. I didn’t have one. After much research on the best options out there, I settled on Supergoop. When you want a sunscreen to carry in your purse or on a plane, this is a good thing to have in your arsenal.

Supergoop’s mission is to make sure every single person wears sunscreen. They are experts in SPF. It’s all they think about, which means that they dare to go where no SPF has gone before. Every formula and every package has a purpose and a story: the first-ever sunscreen mousse, slim tubes that slide into your jeans pocket, and mists that play well with your makeup and the environment. They are also constantly perfecting the formulas to feel good on the skin so you won’t be tempted to skip applying it. Don’t believe us? Come see for yourself.


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.

Located in historic Old Town Alexandria, for more than 17 years Bellacara has been Northern Virginia's preeminent boutique for high end cosmetic, skincare and haircare products. At Bellacara you will find premiere beauty products that have been carefully edited by the store’s owner, Angela Sitilides, who personally tests all the products sold in store.
