Review – Vichy Laboratoires Capital Soleil SPF 50+ Face Cream


When buying a sunscreen product, most people usually do not bother on checking what’re the ingredients in the product, but more concerned on the texture, smell and SPF. In fact, it is far more important to know what’s the beneficial ingredients that can help on protecting our skin from the harmful UV rays

Vichy Laboratoires Capital Soleil SPF 50+ Face Cream for reactive skin is one product I have discovered recently to have many useful ingredients. It contains Mexoryl® XL, Octocrylene, Titanium Dioxide and Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane.


Mexoryl® XL – is an active ingredient which said to give a broad-spectrum sunscreen protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

Octocrylene – protects skin from the UVB range of sunlight.

Titanium Dioxide – offers protection across a greater range of wavelengths with no risk of irritation and protects across the entire UVA & UVB spectrum.

Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane – it is a synthetic sunscreen ingredient (also known as Parsol 1789 and avobenzone) that can protect against the entire range of the sun’s UVA rays.


It also contains Eperuline which helps to lower the sensitivity level of the skin, which is extremely suitable for sensitive skin like me. After application, my skin tends to feel a bit whitish and slight oily.


Will I buy it again? …… I doubt so!


Vichy is available at Watsons, Guardian and pharmacy stores
