If you want a dash of luxury combined with the latest advances in sun care, then the new Payot Benefice Soleil Anti-Aging line is for you.
There are four products in the line which address sun protection and highlighting the face and body. The first two are anti-aging protective creams - one with SPF 30 and one with SPF 15. All the products in the Benefice line contain the Sunflower (the oil, milk and petals), which the Payot labs have discovered are rich in flavonoids which offer cellular protection in the skin to help protect it from the sun as well as fight free radicals which speed aging.
I not only found the textures of the sunscreens amazing, but they were also
completely transparent on my skin when I rubbed them in – so there was no white or grayish cast at all. They absorbed quickly, were non-sticky, with a matte finish.
As with all Payot products, the Benefice Soleil line smells amazing! This line is scented with the lotus flower, combined with peony and jasmine. The fragrance is pretty, feminine and light. I also found that it did not become "cloying" - even in high temps when some floral scents can change.
The other two products in the line are the Benefice Soleil Protective Illuminating powder SPF 6 for face and décolleté and the Benefice Soleil Skin Repairing Milk.
The Illuminating powder was another beautiful product in the line.The powder was finely milled, velvet smooth and extremely easy to apply and blend. It gave me a lovely hint of shimmer that was perfect to add to my regular bronzer or blush, or just a light dusting over my face in place of pressed powder for a nice summer look. This is a light copper/bronze shade with light shimmer all skin tones can use. However, if you have dark brown skin, you will only be able to use this for the highlighter/shimmer effect, as opposed to a light "bronzing" color.
The repairing milk is a nice treat for your body after a long day sunning at the beach or in the pool. It gave me great, non-greasy hydration and felt amazing going on because of that same silky texture that is present in this entire line of products.
This line is perfect for those of you looking to treat yourself to one of the best French skin care lines on the market - and protect your skin in style! - RLB
