Protect Your Skin with Vichy ~ #Review & #Giveaway

I can't believe Summer is just around the corner.  Now that I am out more often, especially going for my runs and taking the kids on our excursions, I have been trying to put sunscreen on myself and the kids as often as I can.  The main reason why we don't like putting on sunscreen is because sometimes it can take too long to absorb so it makes us look like clowns or give us that awful greasy feel.

There are only a few sunscreens the family enjoy using and Vichy is one of them.  Vichy's Capital Soleil Mexoryl XL Bare skin feel lotion has more of a lotion texture than a cream and it can be use for both the face and body.  It absorbs quickly leaving my skin non oily or sticky.  I hate to put it on and then can't even open the front door because my hands are all gross and slippery.  Also it  barely leaves any white residue.  You know what I mean, no matter how much you rub it in, there are white streak marks that are hard to get rid of.   My daughter hates me putting her sunscreen on because of the white streak marks and believe other classmates will make fun of her.  After I told her that this sunscreen won't leave any marks, she was content to let me to put it on.



It is also water resistance so we are still protected during the hot sweaty summer weather but it is recommended to apply more often if we plan to go swimming this summer.  What I also like is how Vichy's Capital Soleil Bare Skin Feel lotion does not have that unpleasant sunscreen smell.  There is a slight sunscreen scent but not as bad as the other brands.  We always remember to put sunscreen on our face and body but I bet majority forget to put on their lips.  Vichy's Capital Soleil Mexoryl XL lip protection stick has no sun screen scent but actually has a light sweet sent.  Perfect for this summer.  I know I will be using this often underneath my lip stick or combine it with my usual lip balm.  All of these products I have mentioned above is non-sticky and it is for all skin type.

Vichy's Capital Soleil Mexoryl XL Bare Skin Feel lotion SPF 45 (150ml, $29.95), SPF 60 (150ml, $29.95), and the NEW! lip protection stick SPF 30 (4.7ml, $13) are hypoallergenic, water-resistant, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free formula, and paraben-free.  Available in your local drug stores that sells Vichy products.

Giveaway!!
