beautyheaven says:

To respect sensitive skin, the Avene Aqua Fluid SPF50+ Sunscreen has been formulated with only the minimum number of chemicals, while still maintaining the highest UVA and UVB protection. 

Initial impressions of the compact bottle were that it would easily fit into a handbag, with the flip lid preventing leakage. Plus, the vibrant orange colour helped it to stand out in the bottom of a larger beach bag. 

Although most Trial Team members already had a sunscreen in their routine prior to trying Avene’s latest formula, majority voiced that due to the lightweight, “fluidy” consistency and sheen finish, this quickly became their SPF of choice. With its invisible feel and weightless texture, the product absorbed quickly, didn’t pill and left no oily or greasy residue on the skin. 

Additionally, the nourishing formula (which is rich in Avene’s Thermal Spring Water) ensured that members with breakout-prone skin experienced no irritation.

All in all, Avene’s latest sunscreen formula ticked every box on our Trial Team members checklist. It blended well with skin care products, sat nicely beneath makeup, provided a high level of protection with the SPF 50+ rating and didn’t cause irritation or excess shine, even on sensitive skin. 

For these reasons, members expressed enthusiasm for continuing to use this product as their go-to daily sunscreen.

You say:

“Highly recommended for everyday use. Non greasy so perfect even to apply under the foundation. Only used twice under foundation and my make up was intact the full day without any smudge.” – Dreamy

“This is also for sensitive skin and fragrance free which is also a plus to not have that zincy sunscreen smell others have. Also being light in consistency I found my skin doesn’t break out using this everyday.” – Cathyartup

“Firstly the packaging is very cute and good size. I found the consistency of the product to be very good as well. It wasn’t too thick or too thin and just melted into the skin. It did not leave a greasy residue either which is a huge bonus in a sunscreen. I let it dry a couple of minutes and then followed up with my normal primer and foundation. It did not interfere with the lasting power of my foundation which was great. Will definitely use again!”  -Elisa361

“However, it is just brilliant, I loved it. It’s so light and absorbs instantly. It’s non greasy so it doesn’t leave a shiny film on your skin. There is no white ghosting. I loved it so much that I will definitely be buying it again and switching.” – Kitty ocean

  1. The price, ouch! I didn’t know the price of this when I trialled it, plus we were under strict embargo for everywhere, so no talking about it on any social media or here. I did Google it and couldn’t find anything a few weeks ago. So, I assumed the little container we got was like a sample container but it’s the actual container, 40ml for $27.95. It is a great size for bags and easy to find being bright orange. My lid wouldn’t close anymore after the third use so it stays at home. I did like this sunscreen but will probably stick to my other favourite as it’s half the price of this one and nearly double the size.

  2. I would think instantly such a product would leave the skin a little greasy. But it’s good to read this one doesn’t do that. I should try other products other than my usual La Roche-Posay

  3. I have been using this sunscreen for a while now and absolutely love it for my face. It doesn’t leave that white sheen that other brands do and it is so light alone or under your makeup. It’s my choice of sunscreen all the time. Love this brand.
