Avene 50+ SPF Cream
I love summer, but it doesn’t tend to love me. I am very fair and burn if I even look at the sun, so I am very careful with my skin protection in the summer months. I have tried lots of different face creams with high SPFs, but they have all aggravated my rosacea by being too heavy or full of irritants.
This is a very high SPF cream which protects my hyper-sensitive skin from burning, but Avene products are also rich in Avene thermal spring water, which means it’s soothing and non-irritating.
I wear this every day in summer, in other seasons I wear it if I know I’m going to be outside for an extended period of time.
It is quite white and you do have to rub it in to make sure you don’t have white patches - however I’m very pale so maybe that would be more annoying or noticeable if you are more tanned.
This comes in a 50ml size, so you can throw it in your hand luggage if you’re going away for a sunny weekend. It also has a pump dispenser which I much prefer to a squeezy tube, which tend to explode all over me on planes!
This was another French pharmacy purchase. I usually have to wait for Avene products to come on 3 for 2 in Boots before I get them, but I’m now just going to stock up when I go over to France!
Have you used any other Avene products? What’s your summer skin care saviour?
