Kate Hudson uses this editor-loved serum.
I’ve been searching for the perfect barely-there foundation for almost a decade. I dreamed of a glowy tint that didn’t cake or completely cover but that softened my breakouts and discoloration — like a beauty filter I could wear in real life. There were a lot I tried where the term “tint” felt like a stretch or, on the opposite end, so full-coverage I lost any semblance of who I was (a highly freckled girl) underneath. That was until I met Ilia’s Super Serum Skin Tint, the skincare-meets-makeup tinted serum that quickly cemented itself as a celebrity beauty staple, and which, right now, is 20 percent off just for InStyle readers.
The brand’s Super Serum Skin Tint is a triple threat, working as a tint, sunscreen, and hydrating serum. It’s no wonder it’s amassed such a huge following, used by stars including Kate Hudson, Cindy Crawford, Miranda Kerr, Vanessa Hudgens, and Hilary Swank, who said that it’s her go-to for “more natural” makeup. And our InStyle team has been equally impressed, with one of our beauty writers saying that it “looks like a filter IRL.”
Inside each bottle, you’ll find a tint formulated with niacinamide, which can help combat moisture loss and signs of aging, as well as hydrating squalane. So even when you wash the tint off at night, your skin might look a little bit better than it did before you put it on. Per our beauty writer, the tint left her skin “looking glossy and almost filter-like both while wearing and after continued use,” adding that it’s so lightweight she sometimes “felt like [she] actually wasn’t wearing anything at all.” Plus, it has SPF 40, giving people who still haven’t made sunscreen a habit a bit more protection.
The Super Serum Skin Tint is available in 32 shades and boasts thousands of five-star ratings, with many echoing the same idea: This tint makes your skin look like yours, just better. “Once it’s on and settles, it looks like bare skin,” raved one shopper who called it their “holy grail makeup” product. Another person who was “floored” by the results shared that the tint “evened out” their skin tone while still “looking natural” and feeling like nothing. And a customer with sensitive skin and rosacea called it the “best tinted SPF on the market,” noting that it actually “soothed” their often inflamed skin while “looking and feeling completely natural.”
