The new Kosas DreamBeam Sunlit.

Whether the Kosas DreamBeam SPF 40 mineral sunscreen is one of your favorite products or not, I've got some pretty exciting news. The clean beauty brand just released a new version of the original product, which is meant to replace your sunscreen, bronzer *and* primer. Better yet, Kosas says its new DreamBeam Sunlit ($40) melts into the skin and leaves behind a “just-got-back-from-vacay” glow, so there's no question whether I'm stocking up, but here's why you should, too.

For starters, this baby is packed with ceramides and peptides that help visibly brighten and defend against signs of aging. Meanwhile, 21.7% of non-nano zinc oxide provides an "optimal physical SPF barrier," per the brand. In other words, this product will hydrate, protect and support the skin barrier by locking in moisture so you can look forward to softer, more supple skin this summer. Here's what really makes this product special, though: Unlike the original DreamBeam, which has a natural bluish-white color, this upgraded formula has a soft golden hue that offers a sun-kissed glow for days when you want to look extra radiant sans harmful sun rays. 

With that said, am I surprised that the product has already grown quite a fan base on TikTok, with more than 3 million views? Nope. This was bound to happen.

While the brand swears the new lightweight formula is the perfect base for makeup, buyers love wearing it alone. And it's super easy to apply: Shake it up, squeeze a tiny bit into your hands, warm it up and spread it all over so you can get a glow from the inside out. However, if you use it as a primer, the brand recommends waiting three to five minutes before applying other products to ensure the SPF is fully set into the skin.

"It glides on like butter, makes my skin feel hydrated and gives me a nice glow from within," one reviewer raves. "I actually think it evens out my skin tone a bit, too...The other claim that was very accurate was that it is water resistant and leaves no white cast."


Guys, I can keep going on and on about how good this multitasking product is, but I bet you'd rather head to the site now to buy it before it sells out. So, see ya at checkout!
