When it comes to beauty, we prioritize products with multiple purposes. Efficiency is key — why add another step to our skincare regimen when we could combine forces instead? We’re all about three-in-one solutions that get the job done all at the same time. And just like multifunctional makeup, we also happen to admire triple threats in the entertainment industry. One of our favorite celebs who does it all? Blake Lively. A talented actress, director, advocate, wife and mother of three, she even has a new non-alcoholic mixer line, Betty Buzz.

So, it’s no surprise that the busy star appreciates the value of a triple-action formula. The Gossip Girl alum took to Instagram Stories to share some of her go-to beauty products, and we immediately zoned in on the Darphin SPF 50 treatment. A sunscreen, shield and makeup base in one, this beauty buy is an everyday essential. Read on to learn more about the secret behind Lively’s luminous complexion.

According to reviews, the Darphin SPF 50 shield works on a variety of different skin types and tones. “I absolutely love this SPF cream,” one shopper said. “This is finally a brand that works well with my sensitive skin, isn’t super thick, and provides good SPF coverage.” Another customer declared, “This is the absolute PERFECT sunscreen for me! Darphin, PLEASE never discontinue this item!! I’m very fair and trying to find a sunscreen that is comfortable to wear and protect[s] my skin has been such a struggle, but I’ve finally found my holy grail. I honestly don’t know what my skin would do without it.” And yet another customer reported, “Suits my sensitive, brown-toned skin without the typical white cast of mineral sunscreen. It’s lightly tinted. It’s light and doesn’t exacerbate my oily skin. It’s the best little gem I’ve tried so far.” Love to hear it!

Shoppers also say that this makeup base provides the perfect lightweight coverage. “I’m OBSESSED,” one customer gushed. “I can’t imagine my routine without it. It’s so light, blends right in. The skin tint to it is just enough to not leave a cast on your face. Feels like NOTHING!” And another reviewer called this Darphin product the “best protection for your skin! It sinks in very fast and doesn’t leave any residue or make you look oily during the day. It also leaves an amazing glow to your face!”
