Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50 - Very high protection for sensitive skin, it provides an effective protection against all sun radiation (short and long UVB-UVA). Also the sunscreen is water resistant. The most suitable skin type for the sunscreen is dry sensitive skin. How To Use? Apply the sunscreen evenly to the skin before any exposure to the sun. Re-apply frequently. Avoid contact with eyes. Ingredients: One of the major ingredient in Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50 are Avene Thermal Spring Water. A sunscreen is an important part of a skin regime irrespective of the season. Hence I experiment with sunscreens according to my skin type. I have dry skin hence I decided to go for Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50. According to my little research on SPF, SPF 50 is good for the Indian climate. After washing my face I applied the sunscreen (30 mins prior my exposure to sunlight). The sunscreen left a white chalky surface on my skin. The white chalky surface did not go away easily until I rubbed my face a little hard. It will be a havock for people who sweat a lot as the sunscreen will leave behind the white chalky coloured residue which will go only after you wash your face. :'(. A little while after applying the sunscreen my skin started to itch a lot. I didn't wash my face as the itching stopped eventually. The highlight for me in the sunscreen was my skin didn't sweat after I applied it. As, once I apply any sunscreen I start sweating a lot (Sweating doesn't happen with gel based sunscreen). PROS: You will not sweat after applying the Avene sunscreen Your face will feel very light CONS: Leaves a chalky surface on your face Might give you an itching sensation. Before applying sunscreen it is always best to wash your face and towel dry it, you can also team it up with any moisturizer. In the past I have used Lotus Herbals sunscreen. According to me, I would prefer a Lotus Herbals sunscreen over Avene. Lotus Herbals has gel based sunscreen, does not itch my skin or leave a white residue. On the whole it is a decent products but is definitely over priced! ... more
A sunscreen especially for sensitive skin and that too with SPF50! I have fair skin that gets inflamed very easily and I needed a sunscreen with high SPF. Hence I ordered the Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF50.
According to the product description it gives very high protection for sensitive skin while also providing effective protection against all sun radiation (short and long UVB-UVA). It claims to give benefits from an exclusive combination of actives, “SunSitive Protection”, a product of Pierre Fabre Group Research. The product has a light and no greasy texture: invisible, non-oily texture for particularly pleasant application.
The packaging is an attractive orange box. Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50 is a orange & white tube with a pump dispenser which makes it easy to use. The pump is sealed with a plastic cap making it travel friendly. It is a water resistant sunscreen that gives broad spectrum and UVA & UVB protection. It is also Paraben free. You need to apply it evenly on the areas exposed to the sun. Reapplication is required just like any other sunscreen. The product has a very light pleasant scent. It is creamy white in colour and spreads easily. The consistency is good, not thick nor watery. It gets absorbed easily into the skin and does not leave a heavy scent. It does not make the skin oily/ greasy but neither does it make it matte.
At Rs. 1250 it is expensive but given the brand has derma cosmetic products, I would say it is worth it. Derma cosmetics have active ingredients that work better for your skin. So overall I would say that this is a good buy for people with sensitive skin. ... more
