  • Jennifer Garner just revealed her go-to face sunscreen for hot days.

  • The 50-year-old shared on Instagram Stories that she uses Neutrogena’s Invisible Daily Defense Face Serum SPF 60+ as her daily face sunscreen.

  • Customers love the face serum too because it doubles as a makeup primer and blends well.

Jennifer Garner is always down to reveal a beauty secret. From her favorite foundation to her must-have retinol serum to her daily cleanser and hydrating moisturizer, we can count on the actress to give us the details on the newest and best products that won’t break the bank. And with the summer sun still shining bright (and hot!), Garner decided to share the sunscreen serum she uses on set for a radiant, and sun-protected complexion: Neutrogena’s Invisible Daily Defense Face Serum SPF 60+.

In a video posted to her Instagram Stories this week, Garner shared a snippet of her getting ready for the day in Austin, Texas where she is reportedly filming a new Apple TV limited series The Last Thing He Told Me. Sitting in the makeup chair with wet hair, she held up a bottle of sunscreen—from Neutrogena of course, as she is a loyal brand ambassador—and shared the details with her followers.

“When you’re running outside every single scene 103-degrees in Austin Texas what do you use? Invisible Daily Defense Face Serum SPF 60+,” she said while looking into the camera.

“Carme, do the honors,” she said as the makeup artist turned to apply the sunscreen to Garner’s face using an applicator sponge.

In the second video posted to her Stories, Garner shared a sneak peek at the show she’s filming in Texas. The director can be heard faintly saying, “Three, two, one, action” and Garner’s character appears on the screen running down the street. Meanwhile, Neutrogena’s Invisible Daily Defense Face Serum SPF 60+ is in the corner of the screen.

Garner’s go-to face serum with SPF works to even skin tone, prep skin for makeup, preserve the skin’s natural moisture barrier, and protect from the sun and environmental aggressors like pollution and cold weather. And it’s pocket-sized at 1.7-fluid ounces, so it can easily be thrown into a bag for on-the-go touch-ups.

The SPF is designed with a non-comedogenic formula made for the face to help prevent sunburn and UVA/UVB damage and can help fight against dark spots, fine lines, sagging, and wrinkles. It uses a blend of avobenzone, homosalate, octisalate, and octocrylene to protect and hydrate skin throughout the day.

As a bonus, the serum is fragrance-free, oil-free, non-greasy, and lightweight, and includes ginger extract, vitamin E, and feverfew to help improve the skin’s radiance and an antioxidant complex for anti-aging properties. Plus, it’s free from oxybenzone, parabens, and mineral oils for long-lasting hydration that’s invisible on all skin types and tones.

The brand says that the serum is water- and sweat-resistant for 80 minutes and can be applied directly to the skin before or even after makeup application for a renewed look.

And it’s customer approved, too! One reviewer noted, “I love this sunscreen. This one doesn’t leave any white cast at all! It goes on so smoothly and easy to apply, is slightly tinted, but goes on invisible.” Another raved, “Love this product. Goes on smooth and sits well under makeup. It acts kind of like a primer and actually helps as a base before applying makeup. It’s great for foundations or makeup products that don’t have high enough of an SPF.”
