Finding the perfect beauty product that does it all seems impossible, especially when you're combining skincare, SPF and foundation.

It's either too oily, too dry, doesn't have enough coverage or the daily SPF makes us break out and we're back to square one.

We get it.

Sometimes, it's just too much work.

Not anymore.

Enter Ultra Violette's newest addition to their cult SPF collection, Dream Screen, hailed as the holy grail for everyone's skincare and beauty kit.

As a brand-first, the ultra-lightweight tinted skin serum is summer's most exciting beauty buy, offering high SPF50 sun protection with a soft, glowing and buildable foundation to rock all day.

Okay, give me the details

Aside from its skincare abilities (we'll get to that), Dream Screen has become a cult product due to its versatility.

In 11 adaptable shades, Dream Screen is designed to fit every skin colour, age and type, from oily to dry and combination.

The one-of-a-kind formula is unique, as Ultra Violette is the first SPF brand to combine high SPF50 protection in such an inclusive shade range.

Each tone is flexible and versatile, but if you're unsure, hop on over to Ultra Violette's website and complete their quiz to narrow down your exact tone.

What are the benefits?

The lightweight foundation base offers sheer-to-buildable coverage for a flexible, fresh base that doesn't get oily or patchy.

It really is designed to work with everyone's skin.

The formula is bursting with skincare boosters like Kakadu Plum and Pentavitin to hydrate and brighten the skin, while SPF50 UVA and UVB protect from Australia's harsh sun.

It gets the green Clean tick at Sephora and is fragrance, silicone, alcohol, oil and paraben-free, with no nasties.

For best results, Ultra Violette recommends starting with a thin layer of SPF before shaking the Dream Screen and applying with a dry beauty sponge or your fingertips.

Is it really worth the hype?

Since its launch in November 2021, the skin tint has become a cult favourite in thousands of shoppers' bags, from Instagram and Tik Tok stars to the everyday skincare user.

Gritty Pretty founder and editor-in-chief, Eleanor Pendleton shared her rave review to her 97,000 followers.

"It's perfectly tinted and lightweight in fluidity," she said.

"I wore it throughout summer on its own and it was the perfect tint to give skin a glow and level out pigmentation.

"Like so many of Ultra Violette's sunscreens, Dream Screen is an excellent ESSENTIAL skincare product."

Others agreed, with thousands of users recommending the cult beauty buy online.

"I love using the sponge to apply Dream Screen and can even cover up those under-eye bags," one wrote.

"I can dial up the coverage depending on where the day takes me, when I tend to wear a little more products, all of which apply seamlessly on top of Dream Screen.

"Then I can powder down the finish on days I want to look a little less dewy.

"Definitely can see myself wearing this right through summer and well into winter too!"

"I've been obsessed (with) Dream Screen since I first got my mitts on it," a second happy user wrote.

"It has a lush natural-radiant finish with buildable coverage that sits so nicely over Supreme Screen.

"It feels really lightweight and doesn't cling to my dry patches or acne, which is a rarity."

Where can I get it?

Ultra Violette's Dream Screen is quickly becoming the number-one addition to everyone's kit this summer.

You can purchase the 50ml skin tint from Sephora, The Iconic, Adore Beauty and the Ultra Violette website for RRP $55.

Considering this is a one-stop-shop skincare and beauty buy, we think it's priceless.
