The French love the sun. But they worship the body too and would never let their skin be exposed to sun damage. Which is why we can rely on them to find the best way of protecting our skin from solar radiation. Thanks to Avene, an acclaimed brand of the French group Pierre Fabre Dermacosmetics, which has been globally recognised and recommended for its range of products for sensitive skin. Avene's Suncare range of  products will lead you to glowing, sun-kissed skin this summer. Avene's suncare system - SunSitive Protection - offers the best in UVA and UVB protection, is paraben-free, water-resistant and the perfect choice for those with sensitive skins.

How does SunSitive Protection Work?

By using three types of highly effective barriers. This first one offers direct photo protection using mostly mineral and organic filters which are carefully selected to ensure that they don't irritate the skin. The second barrier is indirect protection, which gives essential cell protection that is complementary to the direct photo-protection, using a photo stable precursor of Vitamin E. The third barrier offers the soothing benefits of Avene Thermal Spring Water, which is a natural anti-irritant. In fact, this Avene Thermal Spring Water is the basis for Avene's entire skincare range, as it has a special composition that makes it very effective at soothing sensitive skin.

Who is SunSitive Protection meant for?

*Anyone with hypersensitive skin that burns easily when exposed to strong sunlight. 
* Anyone whose doctor recommends sub protection that prevents photo-dermatosis and photo-sensitisation. 
*Anyone with skin that is sensitive to the sun, fair skin and skin exposed to sunburn. 
*Anyone who would like the best possible protection from solar radiation.  

The Science: What makes SunSitive Protection so special?
Here's why SunSitive Protection is recommended by doctors and experts the world over...

Photostable formulae: Photostability is ther persistence of sun protection during the day. Avène formula are photostable and do not present any signs of diminished protection after application to the skin. 

Very water-resistant formulae: The water resistance is measured using well-defined protocols. If UV absorption remains higher than 50% of the initial figure after bathing four times for 20 minutes, then the formulae can be consider to have a high level of water resistance. 

High tolerance: Designed for highly sensitive or intolerant skin, Avène sunscreens are produced according to quality guidelines shared by all the skincare products in the line. 

Clinically demonstrated efficacy: Avène conducts numerous clinical trials designed to objectivise the performance of its Skincare products and sunscreen in particular. Example: the latest publication concerning the Avène 50+ product line highlights the global prevention of sun-related risks (prevention not only of the effects of photoageing but also a cell damage)

The commitment: Avène's high standards are exemplary.

Origins is a brand I have fallen heads over heels in love with.  When I checked the website, it said the mask is for dry skin, so I was a little disappointed. I have oily skin but lately it's not very oily so I took my chance to try the mask and I was pleasantly surprise by the results.
