In regards to it's sun protectant abilities, this provides BROAD SPECTRUM (buzz word - very good thing!!) UVA and UVB filters. It has an SPF of 50 and the box tells us to reapply every 2 hours. woop.
So what other benefits to wearing this sunscreen? It contains anti-oxidants (contains Caudalie patented (owned by Caudalie by law so no one can copy) grape seed polyphenols (good stuff that neutralises free radicals - bad stuff - that cause skin ageing)), is moisturising and contains 0% parabens (bad stuff!!). Oh and isn't tested on animals (PETA approved ;-D).
From antioxidants to aesthetics: the 40ml tube is nice enough. And the box of super information in 5 languages is ok. A little bit intimidating, but nothing is more intimidating (or confusing) than its DNA protect claim!? What I can make out (using the diagram/information on the inside of the box) is that the skin is 100% protected against oxidative stress (sun damage??).
It all sounds very impressive and I can wear this in the knowledge that if I apply generously every two hours my skin will have ultimate protection. I'm just not that much of a fan of the wearability of this facial sunscreen. If I apply generously my face is too oily for comfort and that's my problem. I'll wear this and use it up but despite the amazing claims I'm not sold. The search continues. What's your favourite facial sunscreen? X
