L'oreal solar expertise matte fluid protection sunscreen review

This is the lightest high street sunscreen I've come across and as the name suggests it's a fluid which feels very comfortable on the skin. It does take a few minutes to sink in but once it does there is no white tint and it doesn't make my skin any oilier.

I can be prone to spots when using sunscreen but because it's quite a light product I've not had any problems.

I use this everyday to help prevent wrinkles, and it hasn't affected the application or the staying power of my make up.

My all time favourite sunscreen is Chanel UV essentiel, but at £11.75 (and often on offer) this is a lot cheaper and works just as well. It offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB (SPF50) protection so if you are looking for an effective but non-greasy sunscreen then I would definitely recommend this.

ETA: Although it's described as a matte fluid, I would describe the finish as more naturally radiant than matte. However the matte look can be easily achieved with a dusting of powder.

Have you tried this? What is your favourite facial sunscreen?

  1. I tried this over a year ago and I don't know if I had a dodgy one but it was awful on me! Really greasy and heavy feeling (not "matte" at all!) I only used it a couple of times because it was so unbearably sticky!

    I now use Boots No7 Anti-Dark Spot Facial Sun Protection which I am really liking.

  2. Beauty scribbler- It doesn't quite give a matte finish on me either, more of a natural glow which I really like. It's a shame that it feels really greasy on sticky on you though.

    What's the No 7 one like? x

  3. This is my favourite facial sunscreen too. Once its sunk in I can't even feel it on my face and I don't mind that it does give my skin a bit of a glow as when it's as hot as its been lately its impossible to maintain a matte look.
    I used to use Clinique's City Block but that causes me to break out if I use it too often - this is cheaper and hasn't made me break out so far so I'll definitely be re-purchasing. x

  4. Glad you like it too :) I quite like the glow it gives as it looks a bit more natural than a completely matte face. Love that it's usually on BOGOF offer as well! x

  5. This is just what I'm looking for. I'm picking it up later on today on the way home from work.

    Also, stupid question time. Is this in place of moisturiser or do you still need to moisturise over the top?

  6. Rhamnousia- I hope you like it, let me know how you get on with it. It's not a stupid question, I just checked the bottle and it doesn't say anything about when to apply, but I apply it on top of my moisturizer if it helps x
