New! Vichy Capital Soleil Ultra-Hydrating UV Lotion SPF 60 Review

Vichy's Capitol Soleil Ulta-hydrating UV lotion for face and body with SPF 60 recently landed on my desk and I'm loving it! 🌞 

I grew up in the 70's, 80's, and 90's and was a sun worshipper. We would lay out in the sun and slathered ourselves in baby oil and often competed with friends on who could get the darkest! ugh, if I only knew then what I know now! Now if I expose my face to the sun, I can get pretty bad melasma which leaves my skin with dark patches all over and it's not a pretty sight. It's not all about beauty though, we need to be diligent about sun protection to prevent skin cancer, too. If I know I'm going to be out in the sun for some time, I will not only wear my sunscreen but also a hat.


I've been using this sunscreen for a few weeks now, and I'm impressed. I love that it's in a nice-sized squeeze bottle (200ml), and is good for both the face and the body. It contains hyaluronic acid and other skin-loving ingredients as well as broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. It's also water and sweat-resistant for up to 40 minutes.

The texture is lightweight, and it blends into my skin very easily. It doesn't leave any white cast whatsoever. I use it as the last step in my morning skincare routine. It smells like sunscreen, but there are no added fragrances, which I appreciate. Best of all, it is SPF 60, so I really feel protected from the damaging and aging UVA and UVB rays.

The formula is lightweight, so it blends quickly and easily with no white cast.

When applying your sunscreen, don't forget the skin on the back of your hands. The skin here is very delicate and prone to age spots. People's hands often give away their age as many of us (self-included) often forget to take care of the skin on our hands. A good rule of thumb is to apply your facial skincare to the backs of your hands.

I'm truly impressed by this product. Not only does it provide fabulous protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, it also provides long-lasting hydration and helps to keep my skin looking more youthful. I don't really have the patience for sunscreens that don't blend easily and leave a white cast, which is another reason to love this product as it does neither of those things. The fact that this large size bottle can be used on both the face and body is another win for me!
