I was introduced to this product by my Cosmetic Skin and Laser professionals following a Total FX Laser treatment. Unlike other SPF foundations I have used, this one has some substance to it, and glides onto the skin beautifully with the help of an application sponge which comes with the compact. The amount of coverage is easily controlled and leaves an elegant look. My skin tone is medium to medium-fair, so the Beige (Sable) color is perfect, and I think it would accommodate a range of skin tones. The professionals on staff at the Cosmetic Center (most of them in their 30s) use this as their everyday foundation, and now so do I. Using it everyday, I have gotten 3 months use out of the compact. Highly recommended.
It's easy to apply, and the coverage is great. If you are looking for something that covers well, you will like this compact. it doesn't leave my skin oily or dry. It does stay on pretty well throughout the day without too much touch up. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the color selection, which is only 2. I wish there was a better selection to match my skin.
I have some melasma that is getting worse since I moved to the beach. My dermatologist recommended the Avene tinted sunscreens because in addition to broad spectrum SPF, they have iron oxide, which prevents visible light rays from darkening melasma. I bought this compact in beige and the tube in medium. I put one on one side of my face and the other on the other. At first, the beige color looked alarmingly grey on me, but the color adjusted after a minute and looked just fine. In fact, both Avene products ended up looking pretty much the same on me, even though they look and feel different right out of the package. This compact is creamy and good for dry skin, but I still need a moisturizer under it. The finish is not as perfect as my regular foundation, but it’s pretty good and very convenient to use for daytime when I’m out in the sun.
I have been using this product since 1998 and never found a more flawless perfect foundation, ever! I am European and therefore are able to buy this product in any pharmacy, so this is a bit more difficult to get it in the USA. It is a super sun protection, but I use it all year through and perhaps with a bit of blush for evening makeup. It is also water resistant but easy to remove and provides an all day perfect complexion and covers spots etc perfectly. Whoever has not used this product yet has missed out! Super easy to apply! I am 53 years old and cannot live without it. I should get paid for this review :) I know, but it is simply the truth. I think 20 years of using it - proves it!
There is an ingredient or ingredients in some sunscreen products that make me feel nauseous and give me a headache. The product works well, but I can't use it. Unfortunately, for me, it was a waste of money. I wish I knew what is making me feel sick.
I discovered this product on vacation in Italy when I left my foundation at home. My 25-year-old daughter told me it looks great. It's very natural. I need extra sun protection. I am light skinned and beige works well. Easy ordering through LovelySkin and I got it on sale.
Very happy. I keep on buying it. Thanks.
I recently purchased this for the spf 50 & compact. I had skin cancer surgery & needed a high spf & makeup that can travel. I've only used a few times since I recently ordered it but I do like it. It is smooth and not too drying. I still put a mineral sunscreen on first then the foundation. So far, I do like it, I don't like to use a lot of makeup (but need to try & cover the scar) and trying to find a product that is relatively easy to apply, can travel and good for your skin with spf 50 is not easy - this fits the bill! I gave it 4 because I wish there were a few more shades with pink undertones & light to med but the beige works. I am happy with the product. Thank you.
great coverage (it really looks like high coverage foundation) I wish it came in more colors
I love this product. It's quick and easy, but provides all day great coverage without feeling heavy or thick. It's also SPF 50.
The MedSpa I went to suggested this product. I love it! I don't use a foundation just this product. The coverage is great and lasts all day.
My skin is fair, and after having my twins, I have quite a bit of melasma. If I even think of going out into the sun, it shows even more. My dermatologist recommended this sunscreen to help. This product not only helps protect my face from the sun but also covers up the melasma and improves my skin tone. I wear it on top of another sunscreen/moisturizer and under makeup. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because it's a bit too thick and clumpy when i use the sponge to apply it. I now use my fingers and apply it immediately after my other moisturizer/sunscreen to help blend it.
Really like this product for reapplying sunscreen on the go. Also like that it has good health ratings through GoodGuide.com.
I use SPF makeup for a medical condition as I am very UV light sensitive, so my main objective is to find something great for my skin that has the protective ingredients I need and can be reapplied throughtout the day with minimal long term consequences on my face. While this is a great product and fits that bill, I find it more economical to use the tubed lotion/creme form of this product. That said, its great to use on evenings out or shorter periods of exposure and is a convenient and effective way of being prepared all the time or in an emergency.
Finally I found the product that protect my sensitive skin with 50 SPF factor and cover my skin imperfections without putting oil in my skin. I love it. Thank you.
I always have this product on hand. Much better than white messy creams. I dont worry about being in the sun anymore. One suggestion, if it could be produced in a lighter shade for us who are fairer skinned that would be perfect, although it scores a 10 for me.
A great product I have bought many times over. Sheer coverage, moisturizing, silky soft feel. Perfect for dry skin but probably not oily. I use this in the summer for a quick even finish and theres no need for a lot of moisturizer and certainly no sunscreen. great product. Too bad it uses up quickly. I suggest using your fingers instead of the sponge.
I had high expectations for this products, especially given all the stars, but the light tone is too dark for me -- Im not especially fair, either. I might be able to use it in the summer. I am also having trouble getting the application to look natural -- it seems there is either too much or too little going on from the sponge, and it does rub off fairly easily. That spf is so good, though, that I will keep working with it (when I have a tan).
My skin is very oily at the Tzone but dry elsewhere, this foundation works by far the best one. I had tried many other expensive brand nothing seems to work as well as this one. I would highly recommend it.
As I play a great deal of tennis, I have found the Avene High Protection Tinted Compact SPF50 an ideal coverage as well as sun protection. The consistency is just perfect for me. I highly recommend this product. I am a user of many Avene products...they are all excellent!
Love the protection in this compact product! I'm an aesthetician and recommend and send my clients to LovelySkin.com to purchase it. Especially now, when summer is just around the corner...
Just the right amount of coverage easy to apply and great sun protection.
Pros: this compact has great cover and is very natural looking. my skin looks fresh, and almost translucent. i don't even have to put powder on top of this. it feels air-light, which was quite surprising, considering it has such a high spf. a definite plus is that it has zinc oxide, but doesn't leave my face looking white and chalky. it also has a moisturizing effect, which is good b/c i have super dry skin. Cons: the size is kind of small; i feel like there should be more product put in the compact. it also seems ever so slightly sticky to the touch - but it's easy to blend, so this isn't a big negative.
Love this product. Leaving in such a humid and hot city. This product protects my face out of the sun rays and gives me a tinted glow. Perfect for the beach days.
I have melasma so sunprotection is very important. This works weather I am on the beach or hiking in the mountains. Plus, it is easily portable so I can reapply. I apply Obagi 50 over skin products in the am then use this over (for color and to disguise melasma). It acts as my foundation. Make up applies beautifully over it.
