Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50 Review

Hello Everyone,

March is about to end and here comes the harsh sunny summer. Although sun protection is must all year around but in summer you need to be extra careful. The harsh sunrays can burn you and give you pigmented, uneven skin tone. Today, I am going to review Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50 which I bought last month. I have been using this since 4 weeks. Let’s see how it worked for me.

My Experience with Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50

I recently got some dark patches on my face due to over exposure to sun. My Dermatologist suggested me Avene Sunscreen so I ordered this on. They have two variants for this one is cream which I have for dry and sensitive skin and second is emulsion for oily skin.  As my skin is combination and sensitive so I ordered Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50.

 Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF 50 comes in bright orange color tube with a pump. I like its packaging it is quite attractive. This cap closes with a click so it makes it travel friendly.

The consistency is cream is thick and creamy. As I have combination skin, I don’t need any moisturizer under this. It works as sunscreen and moisturizer both. The Best thing about this despite of being formulated for dry skin, It never breaks me out neither it makes my skin greasy or oily. It gives a little bit of shine after 2 3 hours of application which can be taken care with compact powder. It is fragrance free.

I am using this cream for almost a month now and I can surely say with this you don’t need to worry about sunburn or tanning. I have been in sun for one whole day and I did not get tan neither my dark patches became darker.

It is little pricey that is for 1250Rs for 50 ml but it totally justifies the price by the protection it provides. It says you will need 7 pumps to cover your full face and neck. I tried to do that but 7 pumps make my skin little white so I go with 5 pumps to cover all my face and neck. I reapply it after every 3 4 hours even I am in door. I am using it for more than a month and I am still left with almost half of tube so it will last with me for another 30 to 45 days, which is quite good.

It is suitable for dry skin and combination skin beauties can also try this. It might not suit oily skin so they can try second version that is meant to be for oily skin only.

Hello Everyone, How are you all? Enjoying Winters!!! Foggy Mornings and evenings, Hot Chocolates and Blankets. We keep our skin well moisturized with tones of moisturizer, night creams, serums, lotions etc. What wait…aren’t we forgetting something… Sunscreen. If you think you don’t need a Sunscreen in Winters, well, you are wrong sweetie. You might not get tanned with winter sun-rays but in long run you can get pigmentation, dark spots, aging spots and who wants that. So Sunscreen is must have in all seasons. Yes, It is. Today I am going to review 2 sunscreens from Aroma Magic. Aroma Magic is one of the most renowned Indian brands for Skin care products. Aroma Magic is one of my favorite brands. I always keep adding one or two products from Aroma Magic in my shopping bag. IMG_20141219_103403

They provide natural sun safety, Vitamins B5, C, E and prevent visible signs of ageing. Notes of helichrysum, calendula and roman chamomile essential oils heal scars and mattify your skin.

My Experience with Aroma Magic Sunscreens:

 I picked up these two last summers and using since then on and off. I quite like the Aroma Magic Cucumber one most. I am doing a comparison between both and you will see why? Packaging: I like packaging. Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen has a neon green tube with black print and Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion is yellow tube. I like neon and colored packaging rather than dull packaging. Texture: Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen Lotion has texture like a normal lotion or cream. It is not very heavy or creamy while Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion has texture like Fair and Lovely cream. I mean it has whitest cast like texture. Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen absorbs in skin completely, doesn’t leave any white film or cast. It can serve as good moisturizer in summers for combination skin on other hands for oily skin it can be little heavy. Dry skin beauties can surly top in on serum can skip moisturizer but in winter you will need moisturizer beneath it. On Other hand, Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion leaves a white cast after application. It is more like a physical sunscreen. It mattifies skin as it claims. Oily skin beauty might like it as it gives and matt finish to skin. But I don’t like using it on my face as it leave a white cast. I use it for my hands and feet. Both are 100 % free of oxybenzone, parabens, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance. Both have a medicinal smell which doesn’t bother me much and it fades away in sometime. Both has SPF of 30 and Aroma Magic Sun block also has PA+++ So as a sum up I love Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen and will repurchase it for sure. I will skip Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion. If you have very sensitive skin or looking for a physical sunscreen you can give a try to Aroma Magic Sun block lotion.IMG_20141219_103633 IMG_20141219_103822IMG_20141219_103735 IMG_20141219_103435 IMG_20141219_103527 Pros:
