Upping my Facial SPF with Eucerin


Eucerin sun fluid anti age mattifying cc sun cream spf facial sun protection review

Morning everyone! I have quite a summer appropriate post today as we’re now finally in June! I can’t speak for everyone but I know SPF is something I definitely neglect in my skincare routine so I was really grateful to be sent these Eucerin products and have been testing them out over the last month! I generally try to get by on whatever SPF is in my foundation or moisturiser of choice in the morning which really isn’t a lot so I’m feeling like I’m protecting my skin a lot more with these SPF 30 and 50 products!

We all know sun is important for our general feeling of well bring as well as the production of Vitamin D but too much sun and exposure to UV rays can lead to skin damage. UVB rays penetrate into the upper layer of the skin and cause sunburn while UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the lower layer of the skin and play a major part in premature skin aging and wrinkling and can lead to skin cancer. UVA rays can also penetrate through clouds and glass and just because I’m not sunbathing every day I don’t think I realise how much damage I may be doing my skin by not using a specific SPF. I spend a bit of time travelling to and from work in my car each day (squinting in the sun if I’ve forgotten my sunglasses!) and I feel so much better knowing I have the added benefits of a high SPF on the face!

Eucerin spf 30 anti age sun fluid

This is new to Eucerin’s sun protection range and I love it! It brings together UVA and UVB protection as well as hyaluronic acid to help retain moisture and reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles. It’s in a pump packaging and comes out as a light white cream that feels so hydrating and sinks in quickly leaving a lovely base for makeup application! It also has a matte finish and is suitable for sensitive skin! This is my favourite of the three products I was sent as I love how it feels and my combination skin has been lapping it up!

Eucerin spf 50 mattifying sun fluid face

This is a very runny yellow liquid that you have to shake well before use. Again, it’s lightweight and doesn’t feel greasy as well as being water resistant. Like the Anti-Age fluid I find this to be mattifying on my skin and works well under my makeup! It is perfume free but I do smell a slight sun cream scent from it but this isn’t overpowering at all but it is the most scented out of the three products I have. The only change I would make to this product would be to put a pump on it too as I sometimes feel like I’m squeezing out too much! When I do that I just put any excess on the back of my hands as I feel like they are another area that can be quick to age so all is not lost!

Eucerin spf 50 sun cream cc cream fair tinted

This is another new addition to the sun protection range and was a pleasant surprise to me. While the first two products are skincare items I would immediately be drawn to in a shop with their mattifying properties, I am firmly on the high coverage foundation fan page so tend to ignore CC, BB, tinted moisturisers etc. This CC cream according to Eucerin, “shields skin from harmful sun rays whilst also providing a fast-absorbing colour pigment that blends into skin to create a natural matte-looking finish – perfect for the beach”. Like both products before it provides both UVA and UVB protection and can be used on its own or as a makeup base to provide more coverage. I have been testing this out on its own and have been impressed with how it makes my skin look overall. It has a lovely light texture and feels like a mousse. It does a good job of evening out my skin and providing a light colour (I think it only comes in one shade - Fair) although it doesn’t give much coverage especially to problem areas like my chin where I still get break outs. This would be perfect if I was on holiday and looking for a little coverage to help even out my skin tone during the day when I was popping to the shop or going on a day trip! I like to apply this with my fingers or a buffing brush and found I need to be careful round my hairline and eyebrows as it tends to gather here so just be careful to blend well! I don’t find it as mattifying as the other two products and I get shine round my nose after a few hours so I do need to keep a check on it! It is suitable for sensitive skin and unperfumed and I will definitely be giving it a go under my normal foundations too to see the added coverage and sun protection!

I love Eucerin’s sun protection range and find it suits my skin so well; all the products are suitable for sensitive skin and are non-comedogenic so perfect for acne prone skin! I’m not going on holiday this year but it’s so important to wear SPF even when you are just out and about at home! Don’t forget to reapply your sun protection frequently if you are sunbathing or swimming and avoid the midday sun!

See all Eucerin’s sun protection products here and you can buy them from Boots, Escentual, Look Fantastic, Feel Unique and other major retailers.

Have you tried any of these products? What’s your favourite facial SPF to use?

  3. Ooo, these sound really good and I need to check if I can find them in stores. I wish the CC cream comes in more shades instead of only Fair, we are all not one shade. :-(

  5. I always use an SPF cream in the last couple of years, the sun can be so damaging to our skin. I agree, it is really important to apply not only when on vacation but also when we are out of the house and in winter too.

  6. One of the reasons I don't really like sun protection products is that they feel heavy and makes my skin so oily, good to know that these aren't that way. I haven't tried any of Eucerin products, I want to check out the mattifying fluid just for the protection and mattifying purpose :)

  8. Ah I love Eucerin! Such a shame the CC/BB cream only comes in one shade. I think it'd be great if they could extend it!

  12. I can so relate to that feeling when you're sitting in the car and the sun is glaring down on you! I can literally feel my face melting ;) I tend to stick to SPF 50, although I still think I've picked up a tan. I normally stick to the Malibu facial sun cream but their spray on body cream is really good and lightweight too, so I've just been applying that on my face for the last few days too :)

  32. I'm super regimented when it comes to using spf because I have so many acne scars that I don't want to darken. I had no idea that Eucerin also had spf products! I've used a few of their body lotions and found them to be very moisturizing. Thanks for introducing these products to me!
