As the sun goes relentlessly on (my poor garden!) it’s somewhat unbelievable that this is the UK! I mean, surely there is a cloud round the corner? Apparently not, at least for another week or two. Although it’s either glorious or unbearable depending upon your point of view, if you’ve got sensitive skin then it’s a whole other beast really. Of course you need protection but if you’re allergic to most of it then you’re rather stuck. My skin isn’t particularly sensitive but Lucy’s is and Avene is our summer salvation. Her fair skin gets hot and itchy very quickly and of course, she burns if she even thinks about putting the hob on.
This colour of tint is slightly too deep for her (and slightly too light for me once it’s blended in) so for the UK market, Avene needs to remember the ‘English rose’ tone and go lighter for us please! However, on the plus, you do actually get some tint (a kind of bonne mine in this case), it’s quite matte and doesn’t cast white. I’ll caution that with the fact that I felt it did cast initially but that it disappeared after a time. In fact, the longer you wear it, the more natural it feels and looks on the complexion. It’s a very good substitute for tinted moisturiser when you know you need higher than usual protection, but do let it settle in before you apply make up over the top.
Usual price is £17.50 but Escentual has it for £13.12 HERE which I think is money very well spent.
