Protective Water by Vichy, Capital Soleil Protective Water SPF 30 is nothing like your traditional sunscreen, It’s a light….
I have always been obsessed with protecting my skin while I’m in the sun. I have always worn some kind of sunscreen since I remember. The one problem I have since I started to wear makeup is to find one product which is suitable as a base for my makeup.
About 3 weeks ago the Nordic Vichy kindly send me a Capital Soleil Protective Water as a gift. Since I have had the best experiences with Vichy Products before I decided to try this one out. I’m glad to report that Vichy has not disappointed as usual. After 20 days using the Soleil Protective Water SPF30 I can confidantly say that this protective water is one of the best sun protective products that I have ever tried.
The Protective Water
As the name indicate this is a light weighted product that contains broad-spectrum UVA and UVB filters. Since this is an SPF 30 product it’s suitable for most skin shades.
The Soleil Protective Water contains Vitamins E to nourish your skin as well as Hyaluronic acid which calls “hydrating beauty wonder ingredient”. As a resul, this protective water keeps your skin moist and fresh all day.
How to use
This is a two-phase product which you must shake to activate. Then easily you can spray it on your face or body. Since it gives a healthy glow to the skin without being greasy I like to add it on top of my tinted moisturizing cream/gel to give my face even more healthy looking. It works wonder whilst it protects my skin.(read about my favorite tinted moistrizer here)
The Soleil Protective Water cost around 17€/200ml ( 250sek/200ml) which is as much as any other sunscreen you find at a drugstore. So it’s an affordable product.
Honestly, this is the best sun-protection product I have ever tried and I’m so happy that I have found it just in time, now I’m ready for summer 2019.
on days that I can’t bother to have full makeup on…want to look nice and representable without spending lots of time on makeup during holidays, this is the product for you…..
With holidays just around the corner, I’m sharing my the go-to tinted moisturizer.t I wear this BareMinerals tinted moisturizer on days that I can’t bother to have full makeup on. If you are like me and want to look nice and representable without spending lots of time on makeup during holidays, this is the product for you.
BareMinerals Complexion Rescue
The products come in a tube and it’s a gel cream. The BareMineral Complexion Rescue is actually, truly moisturizing. I usually don’t apply moisturizer when I use this one. It’s a perfect option for cold weather since it actually keeps your skin moist and fresh looking. The best part is that it comes in 16 shades so anyone can find one that matches their skin.
In addition to all that, the clean formula and the mineral-based ingredients are really beneficial to my skin. The BareMineral Complexion Rescue even contains non-chemical sunscreen. Therefore I don’t need to add another layer of cream to my skin. Also, it’s free of Parabens, Fragrance, and SLS ( the ingredient found in detergent, soaps and cleaning products in general).
Although the consistency of the cream allows you to use a sponge or a brush I like to apply it with my fingers. This way I get more use of the cream. The result is a dewy look yet it’s far from being oily. The BareMinerals Complexion Rescue stays on intact for about 6-7 hours without using any setting powder on top. That’s why it’s a perfect choice for a no-makeup makeup look.
Not so good
The only thing I have against the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue is that I can’t wear a foundation on top of it. None of my foundations sit well on my skin when I have the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue on. Maybe I’m not using the right foundation and you can find the one that perfectly works with it. If you do, please let me know.
