RoC SOLEIL PROTEXION+ Velvet Moisture SPF 30 For Face

I know just how important sun protection - I'm an avid advocate for people to stay out of the sun and away from tanning beds. However I must admit, I don't wear an SPF religiously. I know, I know, it's horrible. I just haven't found a facial sunscreen that I loved - until now. RoC's SOLEIL PROTEXION+ Velvet Moisture SPF 30 For Face* ($22 CAD/40mL) hasn't made me break out, look greasy, or leave me with the dreaded white cast in photos!

RoC's SOLEIL PROTEXION+ Velvet Moisture SPF 30 For Face comes in a simple orange and white plastic tube. The sunscreen itself is a thick white cream, and I was surprised to find how easily it absorbs into my skin. You don't want to skimp on sunscreen, so I make sure that I use a fair amount each morning. I'll apply the cream to my entire face, neck, chest, and ears. I'll then use a separate body sunscreen for the rest of my body!

At first, I was quite hesitant to apply this cream to my face - sunscreen kind of has a bad rep for making people break out and look oily. However, I gave this product a chance, and I'm so glad that I did! This formula is thick, creamy, and just like the name suggests, it leaves my skin feeling velvety smooth. It only takes a few seconds to rub in, and then I can apply my makeup immediately. As I mentioned earlier, this formula hasn't broken me out, made me look oily, or gave me a white cast in flash photography! My skin hasn't burnt or tanned, so it looks like the SPF 30 is working. I know that I'll be reaching for this daily from here on out.

Thanks RoC, you've turned me into a sunscreen user! If you're like me and hate that traditional oily sunscreen formula, you need to try this out. I don't find the bottle to be too expensive - there are definitely pricier options on the market. Are you a daily SPF wearer? If not, what keeps you from applying daily?

  3. I do apply SPF daily on my face, whether it's through my face cream, bb cream, and/or an extra SPF product. This one sounds really good.

  4. I wear SPF moisturizer every day once we get to April. I also have foundation and BBs with SPF in it just to be safe. I am so paranoid with getting more age spots. I mean come on, I'm in my 30s. I gotta keep looking fresh! lol

  5. Ooo this sounds amazing! And the prize isn't bad. I currently use Kiehl's super fluid, but it's almost twice as much!
