Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 50 Mattifying Face Fluid Dry Touch Review

Hello beauties,

Sunscreen plays a vital part in my skin care routine as experts say “all one needs is a good sunscreen and nothing else.” I never step out of my house without slathering it on myself.

My Experience with Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 50 Mattifying Face Fluid Dry Touch:

I love this sunscreen to bits.  Finding a good sunscreen for oily/combination skin is like “mission impossible 3” and I am always on a hunt for one that spares me from the horror of a thick white mask effect and grease ball kind of a look.  This is sent from heaven for me and sinks in my skin like magic, has a very light texture and doesn’t feel greasy at all and also it serves as a great primer for my combination skin as makeup sits on this beautifully and never looks cakey. I apply it every morning right after my moisturizer and within seconds I can start with my compact or foundation as it provides a matte finish instantly. I can easily say this is the best sunscreen I have ever tried and trust me I have laid my hands on zillions of them :-).

Vichy

One thing I don’t like is that it has a little perfume-y fragrance, but it vanishes after a few minutes. I love the fact that its paraben free and has never ever caused a breakout or irritated my skin. It feels ultra light on my face and has given me the most wonderful sunscreen experience.
