Vichy Capital Soleil Face BB Tinted Velvety Cream SPF50 is for you if you are looking for a high protection sunscreen product that also offers a little coverage and complexion enhancement.
It is basically a tinted sun cream with SPF50 that is enriched with skincare ingredients including Vichy’s famous Thermal Spa Water and also Mexoryl XL which helps to protect against sun damage, brown spots and sun induced premature skin ageing. You could use this instead of your regular sun product when on holiday and you’ll get high protection plus an enhanced illuminated complexion. Isn’t this what we’ve wanted on holiday forever?
Vichy Capital Soleil Face BB Tinted Velvety Cream SPF50 Swatch:
The Vichy Capital Soleil Face BB has a beautifully light yet silky texture that sinks into the skin really easily. It feels really nice on the skin and delivers a shot of hydration thanks to everyone’s best friend, Hyaluronic Acid, alongside the Vichy Thermal Spa Water. The HA also means that the skin is more plump, soft and smooth.
Vichy Capital Soleil Face BB:
- Is Paraben free
- Contains photostable filters
- Is water resistant

It provides a lovely light and sheer coverage, so if you want a bit more of a makeup BB cream, then this probably isn’t what you are looking for. You could, however, add concealer and then set it with powder for more of a makeup look and perfected skin tone. You’d be safe in the knowledge of high protection as long as you remember to reapply.
Personally, I am fairly keen to try it out as a high protection primer underneath my foundation for daily protection from UVA and UVB rays, as well as a sunscreen with benefits. The texture is lovely so I think it will work a treat and I’d imagine I’d only need a tiny bit of foundation.
This is a big thumbs up from me. If you are looking for high protection that is even suitable for sensitive skin with the added bonus of a little bit of makeup, then you literally couldn’t ask for more. Fantastic product. I think I’ll be needing a lifetime’s supply!
