Avène Intense Protect

My Review:

This is the first sunscreen with Avene’s new patented filter called Triasorb that covers UVB, UVA and visible light, which can contribute to persistent hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones. However, I have a lot of issues with this. There’s a cast with this that isn’t HEINOUS but it’s present, if you’re lighter than me it will probably be tolerable. It’s also SO GREASY and was very streaky on me. This would be great for people with drier skin types and lighter skin tones, but it’s not for me.

My Rating: 1/3
