Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing under makeup Bought this with the sole purpose of wearing under makeup as im a Big fan of spf, best uses first after cleansing and before my moisturiser, sinks in quickly and leaves a velvety feel to skin like there’s nothing there, it’s doesn’t effect the performance or look of my makeup at all, would highly recommend, would also suggest the Hawaiian tropic aid soft face silk hydration if skin is a little drier than usual

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High protectionand non-oily having suffered from hyper-pigmentation after going on holiday, I realised that I need to wear a high SPF every day. I have very oily skin that can sometimes be sensitive but I have not had any problems with this. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non greasy and long lasting I usually avoid sun cream on face as I have oily acne prone skin and it is too greasy. This product is AMAZING! Really matifys skin for long periods of time. Would highly recommend to any one who has oily or spot prone skin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impeccable I came into finding this jewel of a sunscreen mostly by chance. I recently came back from my first holiday in over a decade and realised how tanned I get - so much so that I have unfortunately become determined (read: addicted) to maintaining this level of colour year round. This is maintained by a one-weekly 10 minute sun bed session. However, a beautiful tan does not come without its drawbacks. My primary concern is photo ageing and the acceleration of this process that sunbeds inevitably contribute due to irregular intense UVA exposure. Additionally, as someone who wears foundation every day religiously, finding a sunscreen to wear underneath it everyday was a challenge. Then as I started to get paranoid about what I was doing to my youthful appearance by using sunbeds, I became frantic about searching for the best sunscreen when I came upon this one by chance on the internet. I immediately went to the Boots website and ordered it and it arrived in store the next day. When I finally applied it, I was in love with the texture of it, how it applied and how revitalised and dewy my face looked after. (You have to be quick when applying it as it dries quite fast). I let it sink in for 5 minutes or so before applying my foundation, nervously and anxiously hoping that this would be the sunscreen that wouldn’t interfere with my makeup. Well? It didn’t interfere; if anything, it turned out to be a lovely base for my foundation as it left my skin smooth. It controls oil throughout the day and honestly makes applying your makeup so much nicer. All this and I get to leave the house knowing my face is protected from UVA rays and looking good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really creamy and soft This milk is soft and gentle for all the family loved the smell and how it dried in quickly on the skin and didn't leave a skin feeling greasy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It protects skin but it feels greasy to me This is a good size tube of sun cream and does provide protection with regular applications. It says it is a non greasy product but I disagree, I find it greasy to touch, to the point where I do not like to sit on my sofa after application. It is quite expensive compared to others and therefore I was disappointed that it feels so greasy. OK on your holidays but not so practical for everyday sun protection if you dont want to feel sticky all the time. Fragrance is pleasant but very mild. This probably wouldn't be my first choice in future however it does work so I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product Been using this for quite a while. Now use it everyday after my moisturiser but before my make up. Great, matte finish. Doesn't feel like suncream at all. Although the tube is reasonably small it does last quite a while. Will always be my go to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection It gave really good protection from the sun, I even used it on my toddler when hers ran out while we were out for the day, it feels lovely and silk when it goes on the skin and has a lovely fragrance that just makes me think of holidays!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent facial suncream I found this sun cream really very good for my face. It was light, totally absorbed and didn't leave me looking like I was smothered in grease like normal sun creams do! I have also used this on my children, who obviously prefer my sun creams to theirs. Very pleased and will be getting a second bottle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly mattifying Not sure whether its the change in season or not but i found the sf 30 version of this much more mattifying. This isn't a big issue for me personally; apart from those particularly hot days in summer when I prefer not to look too shiny to begin with or, blot the product off my face from the offset. Other than that its a good suncream that sinks in and doesn't leave much of a trace that its there. Ive only given four because of the shine and fact that you have to take a little time tapping it into your face to achieve the invisible result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for oily skin I have extremely sensitive, oily skin and have always found suncream that I can use on my face impossible to find. I have now been using this daily for 3 months and have never had a bad reaction to it, and my skin has not broken out or been over-moisturised from this product! would highly recommend to anyone with oily skin :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great under my makeup I love this suncream, even though its mattifying it did not leave my skin looking dull unlike other mattifying products I have used in the fast. It absorbed in easily and worked really well under my makeup with out any irritation and did not course any brakeouts so I would really recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product This is a lovely product to use whether you are on holiday or in your back garden. It smells heavenly and sinks into your skin without leaving a greasy residue. It offers great protection for your skin and doesn't irritate it all. The bottle is large and is, therefore, good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps skin matt I have bought this product a few times. It's great under make up as a primer in the summer, and my husband who suffers from oily skin is also a fan.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not fluid like! I bought this product as I usually use Vichy moisturiser but it is much thicker to apply than I thought. It is not fluid like!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Standard sun cream This sun cream makes some bold claims about luxurious textures etc but I really did feel this was a very sun of the mill sun cream. For me the texture was exactly the same as other cheaper leading brands sold at boots and having been kindly sent this by boots to review I don't think I would spend so much money on purchasing it when I run out. On the plus side is does have a nice light fruity floral scent and it comes in a large bottle. Packaging is nice and looks high end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daily high protection After having nasal reconstruction due to a skin cancer I now use a sunscreen every day no matter what the weather is like. I have tried many sunscreen brands and find Vichy is the best. I have a normal type skin. I find the product is easily absorbed non greasy and does not leave my face shiny. It is great as a base under my make-up, I even also mix a little extra into my foundation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend. I searched for a long time for the right SPF that would give me full protection yet not affect my skin too much, as I naturally have quite oily skin. This is great and it dries so quickly on your skin, meaning you could apply makeup almost straight after. The formula is thick and so it really feels like you are protecting your skin, yet a little also goes a long way. Good value too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moisturising! I use high SPF sun cream on a daily basis in summer as my skin burns so easily and they tend to be really greasy and the fragrance is awful. This product however is so absorbant and was akin to a moisturiser- my skin felt so soft! The smell is pleasant and it did protect my skin. I would prefer a higher SPF than 30 but other than that, I would recommend this product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected I bought this sunscreen after seeing it was suitable for both face and body, and also because the description said it leaves no white marks. Having used it now, I can say it is a thick and greasy sunscreen, which makes it quite hard to apply. But the worst part is that it does a leave a white cast which is really disappointing. Personally, would not buy it again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this SPF I think this SPF is perfect, I use on very sunny days in the UK or on holiday! It doesn’t pill on my Skin after putting moisturiser on underneath. It has a fruity sunscreen smell but I don’t mind it as mostly wear on holiday. Perfect for those who don’t want any greasy skin from sunscreen. It allows me to Put powder Make up on fine afterward too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mattifying protection I have been using this product for a few years now and love it! Non greasy, perfect under makeup, no whiteness and really does protect my skin (I use it in Florida as well) I have melasma and notice that it darkens if I use other sunscreens, but this one really does protect my skin. No break outs from this either. Hope they never discontinue it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sun stuck ever I have bought this many times over the years - this stick is great for everyone inc children - easy to apply on your face and ears , no smearing sun cream effects - goes on clear and you can’t even feel it on your face it’s so lightweight.... and as factor 50 suggests no one that has used it inc myself has ever Burned . It’s a great product !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely sun cream- quickly aborbed I really like this suncream. It has a lovely consistency and is quickly and easily absorbed into my skin. I have been using this on our whole family-(adults, child and dog) and have found it offer really good protection. I have found that a little goes a long way and the tube has lasted well. Will definitely buy this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal by name, Ideal by nature! I've been using this product for around a month now and really like it. I love the non greasiness of the application and the smell isn't too much either. I'm pale so always wear at least a 30 and this appealed due to no parabens and suitable for sensitive skin. Would definitely continue using it and would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant product. I had high expectations of this product as I generally like Vichy's products. I wasn't let down. The sun cream isn't greasy which is great as I cannot stand greasy lotions on my skin. The relatively high SPF is also great for my fair skin. It covers all types of harmful rays from the sun and has a pleasant scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my face matte all day Great high spf sunscreen, I've been looking for a good spf 50 cream for my face that doesn't look greasy and this one does the job better than most others I've tried. Though I can feel the product is thick (I guess it has to be for the high spf), it doesn't give the shiny, sludgy finish that a lot of others do.
Date published: 2020-07-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed, won't buy again As per some other reviews it does leave a white cast/film and can be a bit flakey as well. I've used it a few times now, trying to work out if I'm applying it wrong(?) but no luck so far. I wanted a sunscreen where I didn't need to add foundation on top to cover up the pale effect. Would return if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably good for combination/dry skin I'm using this pretty much daily, I absolutely love it!! Doesn't leave white marks and a little goes a long way! Is absorbed directly into the skin, almost instantly, without leaving it oily or dry. My skin is combination, sometime oily, some others dry, this product works for me either way! I love it!
