Avene Very High Protection Emulsion Review


Even though I complain about the heat all throughout the year I love Summer. There's something in the air which makes me happy at this time of the year. I was born in the peak of summer so I guess I'm a summer girl at heart. Summer calls for strappy tops so I am constantly on the lookout for an effective sunscreen as I drive a long distance in the harsh afternoon sun almost daily. You obviously know that sunscreen is extremely necessary in one's skincare regime, not only to prevents sunburn but also to avoid premature ageing and skin cancers. And in a hot and sunny country like India, one must use a sunscreen with the highest SPF (SPF50+) for effective protection. I discovered Avène thanks to a sample I got in My Envy Box and was very happy with their products. For those of you who don't know, Avène is an acclaimed French skincare brand that has been globally recognized and recommended by dermatologists for its range of products for sensitive skin. They've recently launched in India and have a sun care range that offers Very High protection for sensitive skin.

The product I've been using is the Eau Thermale Avène Very High Protection Emulsion SPF 50  which provides broad-spectrum protection from UVA & UVB rays. Its water resistant, non-greasy, lightweight and gives a matte finish and is very safe for sensitive skin. It's patented formula contains a powerful and photostable anti-oxidant called Pre-Tocopheryl, which binds the free radicals created by oxidation of the skin and stops them from causing damage to the body’s cells, thus preventing the effects of ageing. It also slows melanin production. It also contains the acclaimed beauty blogger favorite Avène Thermal Spring Water which is known for its soothing and anti-irritant properties. In fact, Avène Thermal Spring Water is the basis for their entire skincare range, as it has a special composition which makes it effective at soothing sensitive skin, especially during and after sun exposure.


It comes in a squeezable tube that has a pump dispenser covered by a plastic cap which makes it travel friendly, hygienic and ensures that no product is wasted. This product is truly an emulsion - a white liquid with a consistency which is between that of a cream and a lotion; neither too thick, nor too runny.  It spreads easily on skin and two pumps are enough for the face and neck. After proper blending, it sinks into the skin completely, without leaving any whitish or ashy cast on the face. Its moisturizing yet non-sticky and gives skin a mattifying effect so it looks natural and nourished.

Price - 1250 INR for 50 ml tube

Avène is available in India at leading chemist stores in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Noida and Thane.

Have you used this or any other product by Avène? How did you like them?
