I've used this product for years. It's not only a great facial sunscreen it's a great replacement for everyday makeup.
I love that I get the smooth coverage I want and the SPF factor of 50 too! I'm rather lazy, and this product gives me quick, smooth coverage. I also love that it has the expiration date on the back, because we all that the SPF factor expires at some point, and that is a large factor of why I buy it. I found this product only a year ago, but it is my go-to now for ease of wear, beautiful coverage, and SPF factor. The coverage is not too much, or too little; actually, I control the amount, but I love how it blends so easily and quickly. I only wish there were a few more lighter shades was well. Actually, the Sable beige looks fine, but the next shade, Honey is too dark. Not many shades to experiment with, but I do love this product, and it's rare for me to us a product more than half a year or so. I plan to continue using it for as long as I can get it!
Need to make lighter shades!
Texture is nice but wish later shade or even better if it came in a translucent formula. It didn't go to waste though1 I gave it to someone for whom it was better suited.
My dermatologist recommended this Avene Compact due to to the high SPF protection. It's actually has a nice, smooth coverage that lasts. I usually use Lancome Teint Idole, so I was skeptical at first, but pleasantly surprised and happily wearing it daily.
I've been using this product for over 5 years, originally started while living in Florida. It was recommended by the esthetician at my dermatologists. The coverage, shade & SPF are the qualities that keep me purchasing this product even after moving to PA. I highly recommend this product!
