If there’s anyone who really knows sensitive skin, it’s the French. Have you wandered around the Parisian streets and noticed a pharmacy in every second block? They’re stocked full of brands like Avène, La Roche-Posay and Bioderma - all of which are designed to cater to sensitive skin.
With summer now fast approaching in Australia, I’d like to make sure you’re all using a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen. I know, I know - every facial sunscreen you’ve tried smells, or makes you break out, or is too greasy. Not anymore. These formulas will change your opinion, I promise.

For Gentle UV Protection:
This facial sunscreen formula by Avène offers very high, effective UVA/UVB protection for normal-combination sensitive skin. It’s specifically suitable for skin types that are hypersensitive to sun exposure and burn very easily.
Has an ultra-fluid, silky & non-oily texture which gives the skin a satiny, matte finish
Contains Thermal Spring Water which has natural soothing, anti-irritating properties
Provides long-lasting stable UV protection & it’s water-resistant
May assist in preventing some skin cancers & curb premature skin ageing
★★★★★ I use it with make up - Emma
“I actually have quite dry skin so was hesitant to get this one but ended up going for it to use as well as a moisturiser and it’s worked really well. I’m really fair so the extra sun protection is needed on a day to day basis. Would definitely recommend.”
For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin:
Ideal for oily and acne-prone skin types, this lightweight, non-greasy formulation offers the highest protection against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays.
Prevents premature skin ageing and long-term skin cell damage
Specially designed for sensitive skin prone to sun intolerance
It’s a non-greasy & non-sticky fluid which gives the skin an invisible finish
This non-comedogenic, fragrance-free sunscreen instantly absorbs into the skin
★★★★★ Fantastic product - Jess
“I use this as it is the best UV protection available. It goes on nicely and doesn’t have a ‘ghosting’ effect. Doesn’t make me break out. Good under makeup or alone. Definitely will repurchase.”

“Spring has sprung here in Australia and as someone who doesn’t need a full face a makeup every day, a tinted BB is the way I roll. With SPF 50+, Bioderma has me covered! I have dry skin and don’t need to powder at all.” - The Beauty Bloss
