Vichy Capital Soleil BB Cream SPF50

This is the best time of the year to try BB and CC creams in my opinion, as foundations usually feel a bit too heavy in hot, sweaty weather. To be honest, I really enjoy a light coverage base anytime of the year so Vichy Capital Soleil BB Cream with SPF50 naturally appealed to me, especially because of the high sun protection it gives.

This is a really nice product and one of the very few BB creams in the market to offer such high SPF, which is amazing for the summer months. It smells lovely and is more on the dewy side, without looking greasy at the end of the day. Another great thing about this BB cream is it's filled with hyaluronic acid to instantly plump the skin. In addition to that, it's water resistant, paraben free, hypoallergenic and enriched with Vichy Thermal Spa Water. 

Perfection? Well, there's one downside. It's only available in one shade, that I'd describe as a natural tan colour. So unfortunately it won't suit everybody, being limited only to light/medium complexions. As a reference, I'm NW20 in Mac and the colour is pretty spot on. 

Another thing I thought I should mention is this product is quite sheer, sif you prefer heavy coverage, this may not be for you. 

Overall, I'm impressed and will definitely purchase the full size, which cost only £15.50 on

Have you tried it? What do you think of BB creams in general?

  1. Oooh that sounds nice. I'm not sure about BB creams...i'm sure they're great but the only one I have is from Maybelline and it is a bit rubbish! x

    1. I have heard some bad reviews about the Maybelline BB cream but haven't tried it yet. Vichy never disappoints me though. And the biggest appeal with their BB cream is high SPF + a little bit of coverage. Try a sample, if you're interested. The smaller pharmacies that sell the brand will have it. :) x

  2. I haven't heard of the BB cream before, but the price seems reasonable~
    This bb cream sounds pretty nice :D except that it only comes in one shade!

  3. I agree BB cream is the way to go during the summer time! I tend to use BB cream year round, because I only need a small amount of coverage anyway. I have never heard of this cream before, but if definitely looks interesting! With such a high spf it would come in handy during the summer especially for those beach days.

    1. I also prefer light coverage all year around, therefore have been really enjoying BB and CC creams. xx

  4. Sounds amazing, will try & pick this up before the sun disappears from Glasgow for another year! :) xx

    1. Haha I know, right? Summer in the UK disappears before we even notice it has arrived. :-) xx
