Seriously , I discovered Avene’s Sunblock while hunting for one to replace my Dr Secrets and also to use on my boys. The sun is out and my mood is totally lifted and happy but the sun means I have to take extra care of my skin.
I love how it comes in a dispenser packaging and it retails for almost 40SGD I think for a measly 50ml. The sales lady guaranteed that this would be most suitable for highly sensitive skin and as I’ve used Avene’s thermal water and moisturisers before I decided to give it a go. It’s a white creamy consistency that sinks into the skin very easily. It can give a white cast if you use too much or don’t blend it into the skin properly.
I’ve used this sunblock to the beach in scorching sun and running around for work and I’m happy to say that:
- no breakouts
-no clogged pores
-no unpleasant smell ( although my hubby did tell me that it kinda stinks when he washes his face with water)
- very high SPF 50+
-Broad UVA and UVB protection
-hygienic and effective packaging
I love the formula of this sunblock, it’s very effective.
On the downside, I’m not happy about:
- a slightly mild stinging sensation at times upon application
- the tiny amount
- wish it came in a bigger packaging because I go through sun blocks very quickly and would love to use this on my body too. Oh well!
I am wearing only the sunblock on my face (no foundation except for concealor under eyes). You can tell that it doesn’t make me look oily or white or gross in anyway.
In conclusion, I really love this sunblock. It’s a little expensive for the amount but it doesn’t have a nasty white cast or smell funky or clog pores, so it’s truly a must have for this summer!
