Summer Beauty Must-Have: Avène SPF50+ Cream

Last week I tweeted about my search for a sunscreen that I could wear on my face daily. In the past I’ve struggled to find anything that’s not overly greasy and doesn’t cause a breakout; so I asked my wonderful Twitter followers and had a great response. There were so many suggestions but in the end I went for Avène’s SPF 50+ – thanks Alice!

I literally bought the Eau Thermale Avène Very High Protection Mineral Cream SPF50+ for Intolerant Skin (£13.50 for 50ml) yesterday, used it for the first time this morning and instantly felt the need to write about it. It’s genuinely that good!

A tiny pea-sized amount is all you need for even coverage over your face, and it’s not oily but sinks into your skin instantly. The fact it’s unscented is another plus point, and it felt rather moisturising too.

You’re forever reading that wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is the best anti-aging trick, so I’m determined to start using an SPF on my face everyday, no matter how sunny it is outside.

Are you also a fan of Avène products? Do you wear sunscreen on your face everyday? Which SPF creams are your favourites?
