Hi Beauties,

One thing that I have religiously been using this summers is sunscreen.` I have always been very lazy about applying sunscreen before especially because of the whole greasy and hard to absorb finish that always put me off. This year, I managed to discover some great lightweight sunscreens and my favorite out of the lot is most definitely Avene VHP Spray On Sunscreen SPF 50+ which I’m going to review today.

Packaging
Just like all Avene Sunsitive Products, this spray sunscreen also comes in a peppy orange colored spray on bottle. It comes with a tiny spray nozzle which sprays on adequate product. Since the bottle is opaque it gets a bit difficult to find out how much of the product is still left. Also, its quite long and bulky so maybe not something you can carry off in your sling bags for retouches.

The spray mechanism does make application quite a breeze. You just spritz some sunscreen on your body, massage it a bit and you’re good to go 😀 Love it!

Texture
One of my major concerns while testing out a sunscreen is how light it feels on the skin. Most of the sunscreens I’ve used till date do feel a bit heavy and ball up upon application but the Avene VHP Sunscreen is very lightweight in texture. Since it has a runny consistency, the sunscreen absorbs easily into the skin and does not feel greasy when used on the body.

I have noticed it making my face a bit shiny and leaving a white cast when used on the face so I prefer using this just for my body. You do not require alot of quantity for your arms and legs which is a great thing since it is quite expensive

Efficacy
I had been using this religiously last month and even though we all should ideally apply a sunscreen 30 minutes prior to stepping out in the sun , I usually applied it just before going out and yet it saved me from getting tanned! It contains SPF 50 and gives great sun protection especially for those who have to be out in the sun for a longer period of time.

This is waterproof and sweatproof making it great for swimmers! One of my friends who swims when the sun rays are in full force swears by it and hasn’t noticed a tan line yet. That is pretty impressive!

I recently switched to my good ole Lotus Sunblock because well, I couldn’t find it anywhere(until mum finally managed to locate it under my bed) and ended up getting sunburnt very badly 🙁 Maybe it is because of the lower SPF but I’m most definitely sticking to the Avene Very High Protection Spray Sunscreen from now on and hope the Burst Of Happyness French Red Clay Soap continues to reduce my tan!

I do not have sensitive hence asked my sister(who btw has had a constant battle with acne all her life) to test out the product for a few days. It did not break her out so it will suit sensitive skin quite well. No wonder, Avene is one brand that most people with sensitive skin swear by!

Even though you get a huge quantity which will last you months even if used daily but the price still hurts! I wish it was better priced in India though if you’re swimmer and tend to tan easily, then do think about investing in it! It’ll surely prevent those pesky tan lines!

Pros
1) A lightweight and runny consistency which absorbs easily
2) Does not “ball up” like most sunscreens
3) Adequately moisturizes the skin
4) Waterproof and sweat proof
5) Prevents tanning
6) Perfect for swimmers as it gives high protection and survives water(yeah, one of the rare ones that do)
7) Ideal for sensitive skin
8) Convenient spray packaging

Cons
1) The price is on the higher side
2) Gives a slight shine when used on the face

HBM Rating
4 / 5(Reviewed by Lisha B.)Avene Very High Protection SPF 50+ Spray Sunscreen Review

HBM Recommendation: Avene Very High Protection Spray Sunscreen SPF 50 is a lightweight sunscreen which provides great protection against the sun and prevents tanning. It quickly absorbs into the skin and does not ball up. One of my friends who swims alot swears by it as it prevents her from tanning and does not mind shelling out for it. I know how hard it is to find a good sunscreen that prevents tan lines for swimmers so least to say I was quite impressed. If the price does not bother you then go ahead and purchase it as you’ll most definitely love it!
