If I had to take just 1 sunscreen on vacation, this would be it: Vichy Ideal Soleil Sport in SPF 60.
New sunscreen technology means that no longer are sunscreens sticky, greasy, or heavy on the skin. Instead, they’re light and wearable, with the best formulas being suitable on the face or the body.
All that is definitely true of Vichy’s new Ideal Sport Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion in SPF 60. Formulated to be light and refreshing, with technology that works on wet or dry skin, it’s the sunscreen that’s perfect for every day use, but even more suitable for the times that you’re out and about. It’s water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes, and because it works on wet skin too, you don’t have to dry off before applying it. That being said, I did apply it to my wet skin after I got out of the lake, and I found that the water kind of diluted the sunscreen and then I couldn’t be sure that it was really protecting my skin. I recommend drying yourself off before reapplying, if you can.
There’s no white cast or residue and even when I use this sunscreen on my face, it sinks in easily and makeup goes on top without any issues. If you’re looking for skin protection that’s all-encompassing and easy to wear, then this is a fantastic option.
Also, the Canadian and European versions of Vichy sunscreens contain Mexoryl XL, which is an ingredient that helps the sunscreen be more photostable. That means that it’s less likely to disintegrate in the sun.
Pick this up online or in drug stores.
