Jennifer Hudson has shared her favourite moisturiser with SPF that 'works well' with her skin tone.

The 39-year-old Respect star told People that, as she doesn't always have time for a full 10-step skincare routine, the more multi-functional a product is, the better — which is why she's a huge fan of Olay Regenerist Whip Light Moisturiser with SPF 30.

'[It’s] easy to use, and it has everything: from your vitamins to your sunscreen,' she told the publication, whilst promoting her partnership with the brand. 'You don’t have to use several different things.'

The super-lightweight formula contains an advanced amino-peptide complex that can help improve the skin’s elasticity, whilst also protecting it from harmful UV rays.

Telling Byrdie that the main reason she loves the Olay product, is due to how fresh and light it feels, and how well it blends into her skin tone — without leaving the dreaded 'white cast.'

'[It] works so well with my skin tone. It doesn’t change my complexion or sit on top of it,' she explained. 'I like the lightness; it feels natural. It feels like my skin can breathe, and it works well with makeup.'

And Jennifer's not the only one who's a fan, with fans leaving rave reviews of the SPF moisturiser on the Boots website, echoing the Sex and The City star's comments.

One happy customer wrote: 'I was surprised by how well it absorbs and how light Olay Regenerist Whip is. My face feels soft after application and not sticky like similar products.'

While another noted that, although the product is probably a bit too heavy for those with oilier skin, 'If you have dry skin like me, then this spf moisturiser has a lovely light texture that works well under makeup and sinks into the skin quickly.'

Hudson also revealed to Byrdie that, rather than flood her complexion with tons of expensive products, she likes to keep things simple ('nothing too crazy, extreme, or even long') so her skin can breathe 'in its original state' — citing the Olay Retinol24 Night Serum and Olay Retinol24 Night Face Moisturiser as her go-to nighttime products.

'I like to keep things bare minimum but give my skin what it needs, when it needs it, and create a routine around it.'
