Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Shine Dry Touch Lotion SPF60 - Facial Sunscreen Review!

Yesterday was officially the First Day of Summer!!! Yay! I'm personally always thinking about SPF; but, if you haven't started thinking of sunscreens yet, you should be now that it is Summer!


Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Shine Dry Touch Lotion SPF60 - Facial Sunscreen Review!

*Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Shine Dry Touch Lotion SPF60 ~ $28.95 CAN. High protection sunscreen against UVA/UVB rays, for face, recognized by Canadian Dermatology Association. Long lasting anti-shine effect. 80 minutes water & sweat resistance. Dry touch lotion formulated for an active lifestyle and outdoor activities.

It's no secret around here that I'm a big fan of Vichy's skincare, and when a favorite skincare brand puts out a facial sunscreen, I have to try it out! This is said to be anti-shine, dry touch, with a unique formula to help mattify the skin, even in humid weather. This is meant to dry quickly and work to absorb sweat, oil and sebum. 

I always use a face specific sunscreen; because, I find a lot of basic sunscreens just too oily and greasy on my face. I do tend to get a little oily in my t-zone (especially during the summer) and find some sunscreens can make this much worse and add a lot of shine to the skin! So, this sunscreen sounds like it will combat all my concerns!

What's great is that this sunscreen is broad spectrum - meaning it protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen also contains the Mexoryl sunscreen technology, which protects the skin just as well as zinc oxide, without the white cast or greasy feeling!

This sunscreen applied amazingly - it lived up to everything it claimed to be and more. It applied well, absorbed quickly in to the skin, and left a gentle matte finish. This is perfect to apply in the morning prior to putting on makeup or applying to the face without any makeup. I know I can go out for the day with or without makeup and i'm not going to look incredibly shiny, greasy or have my makeup break up, which is amazing. 

I know it sounds like I'm gushing about this; but, if I can put it in perspective - I have found a few good face sunscreens, but this is the first in years that has rivaled my Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ (which is my holy grail, but not easily accessible here in Canada!)

I have a feeling this is going to be my go-to Summer sunscreen (and all year really) - I find it hard to find a formula that wears well under makeup and I like to wear sunscreen every day. I'm super impressed with this formula!

  2. Ooh I may just have to pick this one up! I have one for the face from Hawaiian Tropic that is supposed to be oil-free, but it's so GREASY! So I don't use it. I still use sunblock on my face, just not that one. Having combination skin, a mattifying sunblock is a MUST.

    1. Right, I was so impressed with this formula! Until I had my second son I had never had to worry about combo or greasy skin, so this is a must now!

  3. I love this sunscreen!!! I don't have oily skin but I just love how fast this absorbs into the skin and doesn't make my skin feel like it has sunscreen on!
