Velvety Cream SPF 50+ is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Factor 50+ It's not very often you get a really good face cream that also has factor 50+. I don't really think about putting sun protection on my face except when on holiday so this is areal help. It moisturisers and protects. I wouldn't be without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I am extremely fair and have sensitive skin so trying to find sun protection that isn't greasy , pore blocking and strong used to be impossible! I went to London with a friend who had a sample of this and I commented on how she wasn't as shiny as me so she suggested trying this and I am so glad I did! I used it last weekend when out in the sun - re applied about 3 times during the day. I wasnt shiny or greasy. There were no 'white bits' left on my face. It smelt pleasant but not overpowering and here I am almost a week later and have had no breakouts or reaction. I used this on my face / neck and have used the spray version on my arms & legs. All were protected all day long in the sunshine without the nasty side effects of dirt etc sticking to me. Very very pleased - have even gone out and bought another one for this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Face Cream I'm very fair with sensitive and have trouble putting any creams on my face, never mind a good sun cream. Vichy however has made protecting my face in the summer months a lot easier. This cream is velvety as is described but is not as greasy and thick as others on the market. My skin felt protected and I thankfully did not get any blemishes or spots as a result of using it constantly on holiday. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this sun cream I bought this sun cream for a 3wk holiday to Tenerife, I was delighted with the result. I used it every day on my face, neck, and chest, I had a nice healthy tan at the end of my holiday, I would go as far as to say it is the best sun cream I have ever used. I will certainly always take this whenever I holiday now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vichy Ideal Soleil SPF 50+ I tried this product as a Feel Unique sample and being impressed decided to buy the 50ml tube. I have always avoided other high factor sun creams because it is like spreading thick white zinc and castor oil which never seems to rub in and leaves a blueish tone to the skin. The Vichy Ideal Soliel factor 50+ is totally different. Firstly it is lightly than in colour and spreads beautifully, adding a glow to pale skin and toning beautifully facial skin that is already pink from Sun exposure. I'm fair skinned and this tint suits me and in the sunny weather I automatically reach for this product for my face after showering. This makes good sense for activities that include gardening and pegging out washing etc. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Factor 50 Given to me to try by my daughter who has sensitive skin and is very happy with this product. Non-greasy and quickly absorbed, this cream does not leave the skin looking shiny as many Factor 50 products do. After having a BBC removed I am very cautious but I do feel protected with this cream. will continue to buy and use. I re-apply throughout the day if required for continued protection. Can confidently say I have not had a sunburnt face since using this wonderful sun protection cream
