Piz Buin Ultra Light Dry Touch Sun Fluid

Piz Buin has a new range of SPF out - and it's a corker.  The very aptly named Ultra Light Dry Touch Sun Fluid boasts a weightless texture, no residue, and the usual protection against UVA and UVB rays.

You can see how liquid the texture is - this is miles away from a traditional heavy sun cream.

When you rub it in, it vanishes into the skin, leaving no white cast, no residue, no stickiness, and no greasy sheen.  It's almost as if the skin is bare.  Both the face and body versions gives this ultra light protection, making it ideal for summer in the city, when you want protection without heaviness.  Or if you despise sand sticking to your limbs on holiday.  The face version is also perfect as a primer - I've been wearing it under my foundation for an extra SPF boost and it's a joy to wear thanks to that lightness.

My only complaint is that the lotion is rather heavily perfumed - once it's on the skin it fades within an hour or so, but it's very noticeable during application.  Surprisingly, it doesn't smell of sun lotion and holidays, rather having a slightly floral, powdery scent.

Anyway, you'll find it at Boots, where it's available in SPF15 and SPF30 for face, costing £12, and SPF15 and SPF30 for body, costing £17.

  1. It is a shame this failed the Which Magazine SPF test as I do like the sound of its formulation, but with its factor 30 credentials questioned I'm going to have to pass.

  2. Hmmm...interesting. This seems like a great one to try out. Kinda concerned about the scent though. I do not like heavily scented creams or lotions for it irritates me.
