We’ve often heard from women that the reason they don’t like using sunscreen (even though they know they should) is that it sits heavily on the skin.

Well, that’s certainly not something you can accuse Vichy Ideal Soleil Solar Protective Waters of. Dual-phase, these shake-before-use products spritz onto skin to deliver a sun-protective veil with a truly weightless feel.

The oil phase contains the filters – including the UVA and UVB filters that L’Oréal brands have long embraced, called Mexoryl SX and XL – together with a powerful dose of blueberry polyphenols to further bolster the defences against the ageing effects of sun exposure. 

The water phase, meanwhile, features Vichy’s renowned, mineral-rich Thermal Mineralizing Water, to leave skin quenched. Just-launched, Idéal Soleil Solar Protective Water Antioxidant SPF30 joins two other Solar Waters in the Vichy line-up: Solar Protective Water SPF30 with Hyaluronic Acid (specifically to deliver a moisture surge, alongside the protection), and Solar Protective SPF30 with Beta Carotene (enriched by a different but similarly potent antioxidant beta carotene).

Dermatologically-tested, they’re suitable even for sensitive skins – and make lighter-than-ever work of sun protection.
