Summer is here already and the limelight is back on sunscreens. Though why we need sunscreens and its importance is a widely known fact, most of us prefer to skip it. Reason, the usual whitish cast, sticky feel, resultant sweaty skin and the list goes on. It is very hard to find one that perfectly matches our expectations!
Care for your skin in the sun with the Vichy Capital Soleil Mattifying Face Fluid Dry Touch 50+, a specially formulated fluid that offers high protection without a greasy feel for combination to oily skin types. Enriched with pigmentary filters and silica microspheres, the matte facial sun protection leaves skin feeling clean and soft to the touch, while combating shine all day. High UVA and UVB sunscreens shield the skin against sun damage, preventing hyperpigmentation and premature skin ageing. Vichy Thermal Spa Water soothes and cools the skin upon application. Smooth the ultra lightweight fluid all over the face before sun exposure. Reapply frequently to maintain a high level of protection, especially after swimming or perspiring. Hypoallergenic, lightly perfumed.
Price : INR 890 for 50ml
How it fared:
Mattifying, easy absorption, non greasy are the keywords that drove me to test the product. I am really happy I did. The sunscreen is perfect for oily to combination skin types. Though I have normal skin type, I normally lean towards oily-combi skin type products for summers as they tend to fare well in keeping the shine at bay. The sunscreen has a slightly thicker consistency than fluid ones but easily spreads and gets absorbed. It goes on smooth and dries to a matte finish. There is no whitish cast and heavy greasy feeling usually associated with sunscreens and I adore it for the same reason.
The sunscreen is hypoallergic thereby making it suitable for sensitive skin types. This one does not clog my pores.It has not caused me any breakouts and is also alcohol free. The sunscreen carries a mild fragrance that is not overpowering. The fragrance though does not linger and fades off in quickly.
Capital Soleil sunscreen comes with a high sun protection of spf 50. I have not experienced much tanning or sunburn once I have started using this even though I am lazy in reapplying it frequently. It does not melt in the sun which I am thankful for.Please note that where I stay the climate is very hot, humid and sunny. I am someone who gets sunburned very easily even if it had only been 5 minutes of sun exposure maybe while waiting for a cab!
The sunscreen comes in a tube packaging with a flip open cap. It aids in squeezing out the required amount of product required for each use. I find it very convenient and travel friendly.
