Piz Buin Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid

RRP: from £8.50
Available in SPF15 and SPF30

--What does the promo say?--
"This sun fluid combines immediate and effective UVA/UVB protection with an ultra light formula that dries instantly. The hydrating fluid spreads easily over your skin for a weightless dry touch feel. The non sticky and non greasy formula absorbs instantly without leaving white marks for skin that feels silky and smooth. Enriched with an anti-oxidant Vitamin E, it helps to prevent sun induced premature skin ageing."

--Packaging--
The yellow and dark brown colour scheme is immediately evocative of Piz Buin and the notions of summer and tanning safely. It's also very unisex in its design, so can be used by the whole family. The tapered applicator is very practical and helps to eliminate wastage, as well as enabling targeted application. Plus, its smallest package is 50ml, so perfect even for hand baggage-only travel.

--Application--
Rub over the face until it blends in. Don't forget your nose and the tips of your ears!

--Appearance--
White, but blends in invisibly and leaves no residue on the face.

--Scent--
This contains chrysanthemum, which detracts significantly from the usual chemical scents that can plague sunscreens.

--Texture and consistency--
Does as promised: the fluid is as smooth as a moisturiser and blends in effortlessly. It's not sticky or greasy and fulfils the 'dry touch' USP.

--Effects on the skin--
Moisturises while protecting from the sun. Bonus!

--Value for money--
While not the cheapest sunscreen on the market, it has a lighter texture that doesn't weigh on the skin in the way that some suncreams do. It smells nice and protects too; even though I was sent mine for free, I'd definitely shell out of my own accord once this tube runs out. I'd love to see a range of lip balms too :)
