With a strong blend of minerals and hydrators which actively function whilst assisting your skin to form a more refreshing appearance and to prevent it from having a dry texture. I purchased this Piz Buin Sun Radiant Face Cream SPF 30 in order to provide me with added facial sun protection during two weeks which I spent in Cancun, Mexico last September under the rays of the sun which I can only describe as overwhelmingly hot. Thanks to Piz Buin, who have developed this Sun Radiant Face Cream I am delighted with it as it has advanced UVA/UVB filters which exist to protect the areas of the skin which are most susceptible e.g the neck and face from the adverse effects of the sun. This Piz Buin sun radiant face cream SPF 30 has an added powerful anti-oxidant to lower the rate of sun provoked early skin aging.
I am pleased to say that this radiant facial sun cream is water and sweat resistant and is easily absorbed, doesn't feel heavy and can be effectively applied on the skin. One of the most positive features of this facial sun cream is that it is no way greasy. Apparently, it has also been tested on athletes. Furthermore, this sun cream from Piz Buin has a wonderful scent which is deliciously addictive! The scent isn't over-powering and also remains for quite some time afteruse. If facial sun cream with a strong scent is something you would rather not experience then, perhaps buying an alternative sun cream would be something worth considering.
My personal experience is that I felt as if I was using a moisturiser when I used this facial cream in Mexico, it went amazingly well onto my skin without hardly any effort. There is one major bonus where this facial sun cream is concerned and that is it is relatively cheap to purchase. At the time when I was in Mexico, I purchased two Piz Buin in sun radiant face creams for 10 pounds but since this time, I have seen them on sale for 3 pounds which is a real bargain!! This face cream does not come in a large bottle so, its handy size means that it can easily fit into your beach bag, ruck sack or handbag.
For me, one of the main disadvantages of this facial sun cream is that is does contain particles which noticably sparkle when you apply the cream to your face. A friend of mine suggested using Garnier BB on top of this so that you avoid appearing as though you are a glittery star on a Chistmas tree! I can confirm that I have followed my friend's advice and that this technique really works well. Perhaps it isn't a great idea to wear this face sun cream without applying make up on top in public!
On the other hand, it is my honest opinion that I did not get sun burnt at all during the time I was in Mexico and I think the positive benefits are greater than the negative ones. So, why not Enhance your summer look with Piz Buin in Sun Radiant Face Cream SPF 30? Disappointment is not something I believe you will not experience!
Piz Buin In Sun Radiant Face Cream 40ml
This facial sun protection comes in various SPF levels from 6 to 30 I believe.
I have two tubes which I bought on line and mine are SPF 6 (low protection ) and SPF 15 (medium protection). Each tube seems to be about £10 from various outlets but I got both of mine for £10 total on Ebay. I have not seen factor 6 in the shops in the UK however and I do not remember if my purchase was from an outside the UK seller or not.
This classic brown Piz Buin style tube is a good quality plastic which is pretty robust for your travels. I would have no fear of it splitting or cracking. The tube is very slim line so excellent for tucking in a pocket on you bag or even on your clothing. The flip top lid is simple to use and closes firmly. The cream itself is a creamy white colour and of a good consistency. A small blob goes a long way so this small tube does infact last a good length of time. It has the classic Piz Buin smell but I cannot say what that is but is pleasant to me. The cream is non greasy and this is an important factor for me. I have used this cream in several hot countries and the last thing I want is a greasy shiney face. I have also used it sailing in Greece where not only is it hot but the wind can be quite savage on your face too. It sinks in well and for me the protection it has offered against the suns harmful rays is second to none. I have managed to achieve a nice natural colour on my face without any burning or pinkness whatsoever. I think the protection it offers is excellent.
I would recommend this facial sun protection. It is not cheap but is a good quality product and not an area worth skimping on.
I am constantly on the look out for a facial sun protection product that doesn't make me look like I've applied copious amounts of oil to my face in place of moisturiser. I bought this after reading positive reviews regarding the creams lightweight, non-greasy feel.
I bought this on offer so the price was excellent. I bought online from the cheapest retailer and paid £5 + p+p for two tubes. I've also seen it on the high street on BOGOF quite regularly. I bought the spf30 which also has 5* UVA protection, very important to prevent lines and wrinkles later on in life.
I was very excited to try this as a non-greasy suncream would be my find of the year! On first inspection the cream smelt nice and appeared to have a nice consistency, not runny and hard to handle but nor is it really thick. It also smoothed on ok and required only a little persuasion to absorb into my skin (a little light massaging to rid my face of that tell-tale white suncream colour).
It was at this point I was disappointed. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it left me with that typical shiny suncream look - no worse than other brands but certainly no better either. Now I have combination-oily skin so maybe it's my skin rather than the suncream.....but I'd just stepped out of the shower with sparkly clean skin prior to application and the shiny look was immeadiately obvious after using the cream. From this I can only assume it is the suncream that causes the shinyness.
As I'd bought two tubes I decided to stick with the suncream, being in the Caribbean I definitely needed the protection. Applying translucent powder very sparingly over the cream eased the shine I found. The cream seemed to work well in it's intended purpose as a sunscreen and I didn't burn at all whilst wearing it.
My next disappointment was when people started to comment that I hadn't rubbed my suncream in properly - even though I knew I had. Being in a tropical climate the humidity is very high and I think a combination of this and my sweating in the heat caused the cream to become visible on my skin in white patches. Not a good look! At this point I discontinued use.
This is potentially a great lightweight suncream for those with drier skin and who aren't visiting the tropics. For those who, like me, have oilier skin or those who fancy a trip somewhere hot I wouldn't recommend this suncream. I've tried many that are shiny but this is the first I've used that reacted negatively in the heat and humidity.
This is a facial SPF cream I use on a regular basis and I have done for several years, I have sensitive eczema prown skin and I find this works with my facial mosituriser, although if you have normal skin you could probably use this product instead of a facial moisturiser.
I've tried other facial SPF creams in the past and either found them to be very chalky and take ages to soak into my skin or they've given me bad spots.
When I was younger, I would go out in the sun and my nose would always burn, then a few days later it would peel, not a pretty look, since using this SPF cream I've lost the lobster look.
This Piz Buin radiant face cream comes in SPF factor 15 and 30, although I have sensitive skin I do tan very easily, I find the factor 15 is enough for me.
This is a Johnson & Johnson product, it comes in a 40ml brown tube with the words PIZ BUIN written in bold orange print, it has a flip top lid which is easy to open and shut, the lid is flat so you can stand it up on it.
The regular price is around £10, it's currently on offer in Boots, buy one get one free, I usually manage to get it cheaper on ebay.
You should apply this product 20mins before sun exposure and then reapply through out the day as necessary.
The reverse of the tube states this is a lightweight facial suncream to improve skins elasticity and give it radiance. Photostable UVB-UVA protection against sunburn and signs of premature skin aging, plus all-day moisturisation.
Piz Buin Radiant Face SPF 15 gives me the protection I need when I go outside.
Yes I know it's the wrong season to be writing about suncream, but I am inspired by the good weather today! Here is a product I use every time the sun comes out in full force. The Piz Buin Radiant Face cream is an essential purchase for anyone who is serious about looking after their skin in the sunlight. You're supposed to put on an sfp everytime you go outside apparently, I don't, which is naughty, but I do when we hit spring and summertime.
Piz Buin might be one of the pricier suncreams on the market, but I prefer it over supermarket own brands. The smell of this product is lovely, it always makes me think of lying in The Carribean. I am not sure if there are subtle undertones of coconut, but there is that distinct beach smell about it which screams holidays!
This cream is available either SPF15 or an SPF30. The higher the factor gives you better protection. It is designed to protect you from harmful UVB-UVA rays while injecting some 'get up and glow' into the face.
It smooths into the skin really well, leaving no trace of whiteness. I use a tiny blob to avoid saturating the face. Your complexion will instantly look rosier and alive with health. The downside is that a few hours on my skin starts to feel greasy and I have the urge to wash it off. The nose and t-zone area starts to suffer the most. The trick is, don't apply too much around the greasy facial areas.
It should be re-applied after prolonged exposure to swimming and will provide protection for several hours against the sun. It is dear though at nearly ten pounds for a little bottle, but this bottle will last all you through the summer season if used correctly.
Recommended if you're going abroad or want to look after your face!
I'm always trying to find a decent sun cream for my face, but the problem is they all make my skin feel and look really greasy, even the ones that claim to be non-greasy, so I never stick with one for very long. This was the latest one I tried, costing around £10 for a 40ml tube. It comes in either SPF15 or SPF30.
It says on the packaging that this cream will give your face some 'get-up-and-glow'. It's a lightweight facial sun cream to improve skin's elasticity and give it radiance. It has photostable UVB-UVA protection against sunburn and signs of premature skin aging, plus all-day moisturisation. It should be applied 20 minutes before sun exposure and then reapplied frequently.
It comes in a small flat dark brown tube with a flip lid that it can stand on. It's a nice handy size for keeping in a bag while you're on holiday so that you can keep reapplying it. It can be quite hard to get any cream out of the tube as you sometimes have to squeeze it quite hard even when it's full.
The cream is pure white and it has quite a thick texture just like most sun creams. It also has that familiar sun cream smell that I don't know how to describe, I suppose it's quite a creamy scent. The texture's very smooth and when you begin to apply it to the face it does feel very light. It sinks in extremely quickly, so you need to be really quick at spreading it over your face or you'll have to use more to cover the bits you didn't manage to get to in time.
It doesn't feel greasy at all, but it does feel like it's really moisturising the skin, and I would say it does feel a little too rich for oily skin types when you first apply it, but once it's been on a while it feels fine. It does give a nice smooth base so makeup can be applied over the top if you want.
They describe it as giving radiance to the skin, and I think it does give my skin that little bit of a glow that just makes you look a touch healthier. I was really impressed as well that once it's sunk in it looks completely shine-free, I've never found a sun cream before that didn't make my skin really shiny!
I find it does work really well as sun protection goes, I only usually apply it once before I go out and it keeps my skin protected all day, I've never burned whilst using it. I'm pretty happy with this overall, and you don't need to use much at a time as long as you make sure you cover your entire face before it's had chance to sink in, so I think it works out as good v alue for money too. I may well be buying this one again!
