Women love the sun, but they know that to keep their skin beautiful, they must protect it. This is why L’Oreal Paris decided to rethink sun care. With Sublime Sun, women no longer have to choose between protection and sublimation: now they can have the most beautiful skin under the sun, instantly and lastingly.

In order to look forward to the pleasure of sunbathing, L’Oreal had to make sure your skin has the best possible sun protection. Thanks to its exclusive patented UV filter system, the full Sublime Sun product line provides your skin with sun protection you can count on. Sublime Sun also offers 6 unique textures that allow smooth, mess-free application. Its formulas are infused with vitamin E and a blend of grape seed, sea buckthorn and sunflower seed oils to soften and nourish the skin.

Did you know that a shot glass (30 ml) of sunscreen provides the ideal amount of sun protection? Just something to keep in mind while the sun is shining so brightly outside!

Sun protection in ultra-light texture designed for face. The bb version comes with tint to even skin tone. Both of these products are oil-free, non-greasy, water resistance and won’t clog pores. It’s lightweight texture and matte finish make it ideal for everyday use.

My Thoughts:
I am a firm believer of sun protection, thus, I wear sunscreen on my face everyday during the summer season. Then I would use a foundation with SPF during the winter. So you can see why I’m so interested in these two products. I first want to say that I love the idea of combining a bb cream with a sun screen. (The bb colour is best suited for people with medium skin tone even though its tested on multiple ethnicities to be appropriate for all skin tones) These two products are also lightweight and create a smooth finish. However, I do notice that my face gets rather oily in an hour after using these two products. So it’s a big no-no for me. Plus, the bottle is not a squeezable tube and thus, hard to control the amount of lotion that comes out since the lotion is watery.

Sun protection in an easy to apply clear spray. These clear continuous sprays disappear on the skin upon application with no greasy residue and leaves your skin feeling fresh. These formulas are non-sticky, non-greasy, water resistant and non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores).

My Thoughts:
I love these spays, both of them! What I like most is how easy they are to applied because it’s a spray formula. They aren’t sticky and provides a matte, barely there finish that feels very dry to the touch. It feels even drier than most typical sprays. I wear these two on a daily basis whenever I have skin that may be expired to the sun.

Suggested Retail Price: $14.99

Sun protection in an ultra-light aerated mousse for fast absorption and a soft touch finish. This product is easy to apply, non-greasy, and water resistant.

My Thoughts:
This is protection like I’ve never seen before. It’s definitely the most revolutionary texture because it comes out in a mousse format. It’s very similar to hair mousse but it goes on the skin. It’s non-sticky and it melts onto the skin. Its fast absorbent and soft to the touch. This is a staple on the beach this summer.

Suggested Retail Price: $14.99

Sun protection in dry oil texture that gives a radiant finish. This dry oil spray is non-greasy, non-sticky, absorbs quickly, is water resistant and leaves skin with a satin soft finish.

My Thoughts:
Not my personal favorite of the bunch because I’m not a huge fan of oils. However, it does have a great smell and it’s just perfect for giving the skin a gorgeous shine when you’re lounging around the pool.

This lightweight lotion applies easily and is non-greasy, non sticky, water resistant and non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), leaving skin feeling moisturized.

My Thoughts:
If you’re more of a traditional type of person, then you can stick with this regular silky sheer SPF 50 lotion. This is a great product for heavy sun protection. If you don’t mind rubbing in your sun tan lotion, then this product is going to be perfect for you.

After Sun rich repairing lotion for beautifying hydration that repairs dry skin due to sun exposure. It visibly improves skin’s appearance and sublimates day after day. Dermatologist tested.

My Thoughts:
I really like this product. It’s fresh, non-greasy and non-sticky as well. I love using this after I’ve had a day at the beach or just been out in the sun for the day. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling comfortable and smooth. My skin stays hydrated even after sun exposure and I dare to say, even more luminous than before.

No matter what formula you like, L’Oreal will have your skin protected all summer!

  • I bought the SPF50 spray and I love it! I got it so that I could reapply sunscreen over my make-up when I need to, and I love that it dries quickly and has a pleasant smell! I usually do two layers when I need to reapply, and although it looks greasy at first, it absorbs quickly in to my skin. My skin is super red/sensitive right now so I’ve been eyeing the BB Face Lotion for those days when I don’t want to wear make-up but still need just a bit of cover-up, but I’m not sure if it’s a BB cream WITH SPF, or an actual tinted sunscreen.. What do you think?

    • I would say that the L’Oreal BB Lotion is sheer, so I would say it’s more of a tinted sunscreen than really a BB cream. It’s good for sheer coverage but definitely nothing more than that. It is really watery, so it’s not very build-able either. If you don’t need too much coverage, then this product is probably just perfect for you! :)
