    This SPF50+ sunscreen is one I’ve been using for a long time now.
    First of all I love the packaging, the pump helps you pump out as much as you can. Also it helps keep out of any unnecessary wastage.
    Second of all, the product’s texture is just G R E A T. You need to massage it to get it absorbed by your skin (which is normal cause it’s a creamy texture) and after that, nothing. This is exactly how you feel. You feel that’s there’s nothing on your face. No sticky feeling whatsoever while assuring protection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Yes that’s true. I used to use it before and I really liked it but I used to live somewhere in Africa that I can’t always find avene products there and for this reason I changed to my favorite Laroche posay. But on the bright side this one is still amazing and I loved it.

    This is the sunscreen I use on a regular basis and it works like a charm for my complexion. The scent is also fresh just like other Avene products. The only reason it didn’t receive 5 stars is because it feels rather heavy on the face.

    This sun protection is extremely helpful when you already have brown spots due to sun exposure and want to prevent the appearance of new ones. The texture is a bit thick but is fully absorbed which means your makeup won’t become cakey.

    I have a dry and very sensitive skin and Avene high protection is the perfect solution for my sun marks. I only apply it once a day before wearing make up and I use it as a moisturizer cause of it’s soft texture. Just wait a bit before applying make up in order not to make it look greasy.

    I like the pump tube for the hygienic aspect. The cream texture feels a bit greasy and it doesn’t have any fragrance at all. I trust the brand so I would use the product. But I would have preferred the tinted version of it since this one made me look pale.

    “I loved this sunscreen. I tend to use many sunscreens as multiple layers to ensure I don’t get sun damage, however, I used this one on it’s own to give it a try and when my shoulders and arms got a sunburn, my face stayed intact. The smell of it reminded me of the sunscreen I used as a child which made me not want to use it as much on a daily basis but rather save it for my beach days. The texture is very easy to apply but a bit too thick for my liking but it certainly does the trick! Would surely recommend to beach goers!”

    “Aven spf 50 is one of the greatest face sunscreens protection I have ever used. The package is practical and can be easily carried in the purse. The texture is a bit thick although I could put many layers for a greater protection since it dries out quickly. I have used it continuously for 14 days (when 2 full days were spent on the beach) and obviously found out that my face remained lighter than my body with no burns. I have also tried it as a primer under my everyday makeup. Personally, I consider it perfect for a sensitive skin and recommend trying it.”

One to two pumps are enough for the face and neck area. However, just like any other sunscreen, you must reapply frequently to maintain a high sun protection. The best of all it’s made of thermal water which gives the best minerals needed to the skin. I highly recommend it to all type of skins ;)”

    “The first thing I noticed about this product from Avène is that you need a minimum of 5 pumps to cover your face completely since it doesn’t spread easily on the skin due to its thick texture, I didn’t find this very convenient comparing to the size of the package – I would have prefered if its capacity was 100 ml instead of 50 ml for it to last with me for a longer period of time. As for the effect of the product, I would say it’s pretty good since I didn’t notice any redness on my skin while and after wearing it. It didn’t have any scent and it came in a neat summer-ish package, it’s small in size so it fits in your purse.”

    “I use sun protection all year round & I have a very sensitive dry skin. What I like about this sunscreen: – Gentle, lightweight, and water resistant (which means I can wear it on a normal day or at the beach… – Hydrates very well (I have a dry skin so this is a plus) – Broad spectrum sun protection, (crucial for my sensitive skin) – Functional packaging – It contains pre-tocopheryl, a vitamin E precursor, which is a powerful antioxidant meaning that it can protect my skin against free radicals(anti-aging), protecting my skin from free radicals is the reason why I wear sunscreen all year round – It didn’t irritate my skin, this is an important issue for me, since other sunscreens can make me break out easily Even though it claims it doesn’t leave white cast, it did. You should blend it very well Have a distinct smell but I don’t mind! Affordable and I recommend this sunscreen”

    Diana's Review on Very High Protection Sunscreen Cream (SPF 50+) from Avene

    on

    “If you know me, you would know how fond I am of sunscreens and how important skin care is to me. As I always say: If there’s you want to invest on, it is your skin! This is the first time I ever use sunscreen from Avene and it is actually a good brand; and for me to say good, it means I like it. First of all, the packaging is super cool with the orange color relaying summer and the pump design which makes it very practical to use. As for the scent, it is actually fragrance- free which is a feature I always look for before purchasing a product. The texture is a creamy texture which helps spread evenly on the face; not too think nor too liquid. This is a good option for sensitive combination type of skin. It is also water- resistant which helps a lot when you’re around the pool. I’ve actually used the Cleanance cleanser from Avene and I haven’t been happier from its results so the brand is really tops. As for the pricing, I think $35 is very affordable for a pharmaceutical brand of sunscreen. To recommend? Definitely! Will I buy it again? Of course!”

    Diana's Review on Very High Protection Sunscreen Cream (SPF 50+) from Avene

    Submitted by Diana Franjieh

    “If you know me, you would know how fond I am of sunscreens and how important skin care is to me. As I always say: If there’s you want to invest on, it is your skin! This is the first time I ever use sunscreen from Avene and it is actually a good brand; and for me to say good, it means I like it. First of all, the packaging is super cool with the orange color relaying summer and the pump design which makes it very practical to use. As for the scent, it is actually fragrance- free which is a feature I always look for before purchasing a product. The texture is a creamy texture which helps spread evenly on the face; not too think nor too liquid. This is a good option for sensitive combination type of skin. It is also water- resistant which helps a lot when you’re around the pool. I’ve actually used the Cleanance cleanser from Avene and I haven’t been happier from its results so the brand is really tops. As for the pricing, I think $35 is very affordable for a pharmaceutical brand of sunscreen. To recommend? Definitely! Will I buy it again? Of course!”

    “The Avene sun protection (cream) is well absorbed by the skin, doesn’t leave traces, and it’s not shiny nor oily . It spreads well, is fragrance free and can be used as a base for the makeup. I liked the airless tube design since it’s more practical to use. Finally and most importantly, it gives excellent sun protection; my skin was hydrated and protected throughout the day. The price is reasonable. Very recommended!”

    “I’ve been using this product for a couple of years now. I love its texture, you only need one drop and it blends perfectly on your whole face. It keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day. Unlike other sun protection creams, you don’t feel your face oily or thick. Plus, it’s a perfect base for your makeup as it gives the hydration required without the “”mooshy”” feel”

    Mom : Put some sunscreen on!

    “Avene Emulsion’s texture is super light. Not only it prevented my skin and face from redness or pimples, it kept my tattoos protected from any sunrays that could potentially affect their colors. Didn’t feel the need to re-apply on my skin as it still was moisturized after a while. The smell is strong at first but fades while applying.”

    “My skin is extremely sensitive, that as soon as it sees the light, spots and freckles appear. So, putting a sunscreen on a daily basis is extremely important. I have tried many sunscreens, but this one is really good. I use the emulsion one, as my skin is a combination, and it goes matte throughout the day while protecting it. Plus, you can easily apply it before makeup, as your skin absorbs it and doesn’t make it look shiny. It smells really good by the way! Definitely recommending it.”

    Great texture

    “I usually don’t like using sun protection because all the ones I tried before had a very thick texture and would take forever to be completely absorbed by the skin, which is not very practical when you’re in a hurry and need to get your makeup done in a jiffy. Avene’s sun protection is absorbed quickly and leaves the skin hydrated and soft without it being moist and leading to a cakey makeup. All in all I think it works as a protection and a hydrating cream incognito. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who has oily skin like me and who’s always afraid of using products that may cause a breakout.”

OUR EDITORIAL REVIEW

Packaging:

The Avène Very High Protection SPF 50+ comes in an orange box on which all the needed information is listed. Whether it’s the sun protection factor, ingredients, or properties. The sunscreen comes in an orange and white pump tube with a secure cap to carry it safely around . You can also find the essential information listed on the sunscreen tube.

Texture:

The Avène Very High Protection SPF 50+ is available in two different textures. Cream for dry skin and fluid for normal, combination, and oily skin.

Scent:

At first, this Avène sunscreen gives off a strong odor upon application. This becomes quite faint around 30 minutes later. However, a fragrance-free version of this sunscreen is available.

Effect:

We tested the Avène Very High Protection SPF 50+ in both its cream and emulsion textures. We noticed the following in terms of skin absorption:

  • The fluid sunscreen is of a light texture, suitable for oily and combination skin. The skin absorbs it without leaving any trace.
  • The cream is remarkably thick. It’s true that its thickness is key for dry skin but it’s not easy to spread all over the face. You will have to massage it well for the skin to absorb it, especially if you plan on swimming right after applying it.

After the skin absorbs either the cream or emulsion the white traces disappear. This is convenient if you’d like to apply makeup over your sunscreen.

In terms of sun protection, this Avène sunscreen provides in its formula full protection from burns and redness with an SPF 50+. We tested it on sensitive skin after exposing it to the sun for two hours after applying the sunscreen. It showed no signs of irritation or redness, provided that the sunscreen was fully applied to the body and face.

The same goes for oily skins, the Avène Very High Protection SPF 50+ sunscreen provided the necessary protection without causing any redness or acne breakouts and pimples. As for dry skin, we noticed that after applying the Avène sunscreen and exposing ourselves to the sun for two hours, the skin remained soothed and moisturized.

The Avène Very High Protection SPF 50+ sunscreen provides extremely broad-spectrum UVB-UVA protection. Only a handful of sunscreens offer this property . Avène indicates that this sunscreen is waterproof but we advise you to reapply it every 3 to 4 hours, especially if you’re swimming or spending a long day at the beach.

Price:

This sunscreen is sold for 36 USD with 50 ml capacity. It is comparable to La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios XL SPF50+ Tinted Dry Touch sold at 38 USD for the same capacity.
