No bad tans with Vichy SPF 50 sunscreen

If your aversion for sunscreens began with the oily sheath they left behind, Vichy’s latest may change your perception. This cream seems to sink into the skin, leaving it oil-free and frankly, smoother to touch.

Product:

Vichy SPF 50 Capital Soleil



Promise:

High protection 50 SPF, mattifying face fluid, dry touch



Pros:

If your aversion for sunscreens began with the oily sheath they left behind, Vichy’s latest may change your perception. This cream seems to sink into the skin, leaving it oil-free and frankly, smootherto touch.



Sun

We tried it for about two weeks and though our work involves barely two-three hours in the scorching sun, the skin colour remained relatively uniform, but it did not lighten.



Cons:

If you are one of those speed dressers, you may want to slow down or better, get yourself a pocket mirror. Though the sunscreen product absorbs into the skin when applied evenly, a hurried application is bound to leave behind powdery white residue.



Verdict:

Suitable for daily use, Vichy’s latest lives by all that it promises. However, it’s a bit pricey at Rs 850 and the SPF 50 doesn’t leave you with astounding fairness, as one would imagine!
