SPF 50+ from Vichy and La Roche Posay

Do you ever wear SPF 50? This is honestly my first time with it. I have to say I am the laziest person when it comes to wearing SPF. I really don't know why I don't take it seriously as the sun can really break the collagen in the skin and although I can't see it visibly now hence the laziness, it will surely be visible when I'm older. *panics and slaps on SPF indoors*

My two favourite SPF products recently are from Vichy & La Roche Posay. Well my skincare is slowly being taken over by these two brands and I love their BB creams too so it wasn't a surprise when I absolutely loved their SPF products. Now I know it's not a glamorous topic to talk about and I hear you asking who 'loves' SPF products. In my opinion, it comes down to product formulations (and your love for that brand!) at the end of the day.

The Velvety Cream SPF 50 by Vichy (£14.50) is intended for use on the face. It comes out like a usual lotion consistency. Not pearlescent as they usually do. When it spreads on the skin initially, I could see it having a slight white tint to it and I was like, no please don't make me look like a ghost in the sun. But in a minute or so when it sinks into the skin and settles, the white cast vanished leaving me relieved. I could then pop on my foundation immediately without it disturbing it in any way possible. It hasn't broken me out yet so I'm giving it a thumbs up for sensitive, combination, dehydrated skin.

The Invisible Nutritive Oil SPF 50 by La Roche Posay (£17.50) can be used both on the face and the body. I was kind of sceptical of slapping this on my face and hesitant that it could break me out. It hasn't yet. I have to say, the oil isn't a dry oil if you know what I mean. The one that sinks into the skin and then you cannot feel it. It's like a usual body oil where it also hydrates skin and makes it look supple and glowy. Has a nice pleasant warm body oil scent to it. The pump dispenser is invaluable for lazy butts out there who slack in this department. I think I've found my favourite SPF consistency and it would hands down be an oil formulation as such.

Get your SPF on peeps!
