Today I’m reviewing the new sun care line ‘Solaire Peau Parfaite’ by Yves Rocher. I’ve had these products for a while now, but the weather just wasn’t nice enough to really test these products out. Untill now that is, we’re in the middle of a heat wave!
The Solaire Peau Parfaite line contains products for before, during and after sunbathing. I know that it’s important to protect your skin before you hit the beach, and know about after sun products, but never actually have prepped my skin before going out in the sun.
I never used so many sun care products!
Don’t wait to be on the beach to experience the benefits of Sun Vitamins. For best results, start taking Sun Vitamins 1 to 2 weeks before leaving. Each Sun Vitamins capsule contains key active ingredients for dual effectiveness on your skin:
Embellish: copper boosts the natural pigmentation of your skin. Beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A) and zinc help to keep your skin healthy.
Protect: the concentrated antioxidant complex, vitamin E – zinc – selenium helps to proctect cells from the oxidative stress which can result from exposure to the sun.”
I’ve been taking one pill a day for two weeks, but haven’t really noticed any difference to my skin. Would have been great to boost my skin. Will try them another 2 weeks to see if anything changes!
Solaire Peau Parfait Before Sun
“Beautifying Mist Tan Activator: Prepare the skin for the sun. The tan is radiant and lasting. This light mist brings an instant sensation of freshness.”
The spray feels hydrating and smells nice. I use it in the morning, and feel like this is a great way to prepare for sun and hydrate my skin.
Anti-Aging Care SPF 50
“The skin is effectively protected against UVA/UVB rays and against signs of aging caused by the sun. Intensely moisturized, it is smooth, supple and plumped. Its anti-aging, fluid and non-sticky formula effectively protects the skin against damage caused by the sun.”
I have to admit that I only use sun care on my face when I’m on holiday or go to the beach. The anti-aging cream is quick thick, so a little goes a long way. My skin feels hydrated and not sticky. ( As long as you don’t apply to much)
Solaire Peau Parfaite Transparent Spray SPF 30
“Invisible Spray SPF 30. The skin is effectively protected against UVA/UVB rays and sunburn. Instantly moisturized, it is supple, soft and pleasantly perfumed. Its light and invisible texture allows for an ultra-practical zero-trace application in only a few seconds.”
I hate it when sun sprays leave white marks on the skin, so I was excited to try this transparent spray. I guess I was a bit too excited, because the first time I applied the spray all over my body, I looked like a big oily, greasy and super sticky mess. Again, a little goes a long way. I prefer spraying a little on my hands first. Still, not a big fan of this spray. It just feels too sticky, takes a while to set and is actually not transparent, but a little bit yellow/orange toned. Which means it stains towels and clothes.
Solaire Peau Parfaite After Sun
“Moisturizing repairing lotion.Intensely moisturized and soothed, the damage caused by the sun is repaired and the skin recovers its suppleness. The tan is more beautiful and lasting. This cool and melting lotion instantly refreshes the skin and reduces the feeling of tightness.”
The after sun calms and hydrates the skin, feels lovely after a day of tanning. Absolutely love this!

I’m not a big fan of the Solaire Peau Parfaite Transparent Spray…. and I’m not convinced if the vitamin pills actually (will) work. Other than that, I’m really like this sun care line, and think it’s great that it uses vegetal ingredients to protect the skin.
