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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
