RoC Soleil Protexion+ 2 in 1 Anti Brown Spot Fluid SPF50+

I hate applying sun cream with an absolute passion.  I've tried so many over the years and being a regular visitor to Spain, it's my least favourite part of a holiday; slathering myself with a greasy cream that makes me look like I've Vaseline all over myself.  And I know it's so bold, but I don't wear SPF every day here in Ireland... Wearing it under make up just feels horrible because most of the ones I've tried are just too heavy and my foundation doesn't sit right on my skin.

So when this bright orange tube arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago, I thought OK, sure I'll give it a go when the weather gets nicer.  Investigation (reading the smaller print and not just the big name) said it was also an anti-brown spot fluid.  This made me sit up straight and learn more about it.  I have lots of pigmentation on my face from years of sitting in the sun and this is exactly the type of thing I was looking for, I just didn't know I was looking for it.

The big huge name that you'll never remember is RoC Soleil Protexion+ 2 in 1 Anti Brown Spot Fluid SPF50+ (phew) and retails at €18.25 for the 50ml tube.  Just remember anti-brown fluid and you'll be good to go.  So what's it like?  Well, it's a really lightweight cream that smells like holidays and watermelon.  Two things I love.

It really does feel like a daily moisturiser for your face and it absorbs into the skin quickly and easily leaving no white residue and more importantly, no greasy face.  It has UVA and UVB protection and uses it's RoC anti-ageing Vitamin C derivative technology "to help actively prevent and correct spots throughout the year".

The first time I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised with how light it felt on my face and thought hmm, this will be brilliant for my holidays in May.  Then I thought, no, I'm going to use it now, it's experiment time.  I'm going to use this every day for the next few weeks and will take a before and after shot to see how the pigmentation marks on my skin fare.  Stay tuned for more on that and the other part of the experiment later this week.

The RoC Soleil Protexion+ 2 in 1 Anti Brown Spot Fluid SPF50+ is available in pharmacies nationwide now.
