Nicole Kidman has revealed her must-have skincare product.

The Big Little Lies star hit Hollywood nearly thirty years ago and has been wowing fans ever since with her important and varied roles.

But fans have always been obsessed with the star’s fresh-faced look, but while using the best eye cream religiously and a super-strength serum may help your skin, the most important step for Nicole is the final one. 

And now the Moulin Rouge actress has opened up on her beauty secret – and it’s one that’s so simple.

We’ve all heard by now that SPF should be a must-have in every skincare routine, but the Stepford Wives actress has taken that a step further by slapping on no less than SPF 100.

“I used to be like, ‘All those creams, who cares?’ But definitely as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized those creams are necessary,’ she said to Allure.

“I’m shooting outdoors a lot, so the most important thing is the sunscreen — I use Neutrogena SPF 100+. I reapply every 90 minutes, every single day.”

The super high factor sunscreen by Neutrogena, who Nicole is a spokesperson for, offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

The Ultra Sheer product claims to slide on easily while also being absorbed quickly for an invisible and lightweight finish.

The non-greasy formula uses ingredients that won’t clog pores and sits easily under makeup, while also being water resistant.

Unfortunately it’s not available in the shops in the UK, but for any curious skincare fanatics who do want to get their hands on it, Amazon is your friend.

The online retailer sells the sunscreen for only £13.04 – and it comes along with hundreds of five-star reviews.

‘This must be the best sun moisturizer I have ever bought,’ wrote one customer. ‘Nongreasy, nice smelling & most importantly it works.

‘I have very fair skin & burn easily & wanted a moisturizer rather than a sun lotion (all of which seem to be sticky). This rubs in like a face moisturizer & disappears, leaving your skin dry.

‘I usually use once daily, but sometimes have to reapply halfway through the day depending on the sun & where I am. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has fair & sensitive skin.’

‘Great sunscreen with super high SPF protection,’ added another. ‘Feels smooth on the skin (velvety), nongreasy, and hydrating. Good for everyday city life. Goes nicely under light makeup (possibly heavy makeup too but haven’t tried it yet).’

Another commented, ‘Perfect when playing sports in the sun, it does not block pores like other sun lotions so I don’t get a sweaty face and have running sun lotion dripping down.’

We might need to try and get our hands on this one.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
