This $46 Serum Provides Skincare, Coverage, and SPF All in One Bottle
We’ll say it louder for the people in the back: SPF cannot be skipped in your skincare routine! If it feels like a tedious extra step after using eye creams, retinol, and whatever else has secured a place on your vanity, it’s time to cut corners. You’re totally allowed to switch to something that combines some of your necessary products into one step and makes your beauty routine just a little bit easier.
One of the latest multifunctional heroes to do just that is the newly released Super Serum Skin Tint with SPF 40 from Ilia Beauty. The lightweight 3-in-1 formula provides light to medium foundation-like coverage; a boost of hydration thanks to hyaluronic acid, plant-based squalene, and niacinamide that work together to plump skin, smooth fine lines and texture, and improve elasticity; and sun protection from non-nano zinc oxide that defends your skin against everything from UVA light to blue light. In short, it blurs imperfections, leaving behind a dewy, luminous finish.
The skin tint will create a natural barrier for the other skincare products on your vanity, sealing in all their benefits and boosting antioxidant effectiveness by 200 percent, according to the brand. If you have sensitive skin and worry about sunscreen breaking you out, the Super Serum Skin Tint has you covered: It’s silicone-free, fragrance-free, chemical screen-free, oil-free, and best of all, non-comedogenic. The end result leaves your skin looking like, well, your skin—just better.
You can get the skincare-makeup hybrid for $46, much less than what you would pay for three separate products. Pop it in your makeup bag for on-the-go applications.
