Sunscreen is a necessity, there's no doubt about that. Thick, white-cast-leaving formulas are officially a thing of the past, and the future is full of lightweight, blendable formulas. And yes, some are even safe enough for the most sensitive of skin.
Avène Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+, Avène Sunscreen Emulsion SPF 50+ and Avène Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+ are a new range of very high protection and water resistant sunscreens. Formulated for the face and body, each offers a photostable formula and skin tolerance for even the most sensitive skin. Chemical filters have been specifically formulated to respect sensitive skin, while the hypoallergenic formula provides effective, broad spectrum protection against UVB and UVA rays.
Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this range of modern-day sunscreens to the test.
Avène Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+: The wearable ‘not-too-thick-but-not-too-thin’ consistency of the face and body lotion stood out to our members, who said they could definitely tell the difference compared to thicker traditional formulas they’d used previously.
Avène Sunscreen Emulsion SPF 50+: The lightweight, sensitive skin-friendly formula made this a no-brainer for our Review Crew® members to reach for on sun-drenched days.
Avène Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+: Our members found the sunscreen spray to be the most convenient format for everyday use, with many noting the handy spray nozzle and lightweight formula made application a breeze.
