Spring is just around the corner and with warmer weather comes the need for sun protection. I normally don’t get excited about sunscreen. It is just one more thing that I have to lug around and make sure to apply before I go out. But, this season is going to be different because I’m actually eager to use my Vichy Capital Soleil 50 Sunscreen Lightweight Foaming Lotion.
This light-as-air mousse sunscreen instantly smoothes and softens the skin while safeguarding skin against harmful UVA/UVB rays, giving you the most pleasurable and powerful sun care experience.

Several weeks ago I received a free sample of Vichy Capital Soleil 50 Sunscreen Lightweight Foaming Lotion in exchange for my honest review of the product. The timing couldn’t have been better because I had just booked a flight to Orlando, FL to take my daughter to Disney World. What better place and time of year to try a sunscreen? So I packed it in my bag. And, I am glad I did. The weather was gorgeous during our visit to the Magic Kingdom. The sun was shining on us from the time we got off of the monorail in the morning until our feet couldn’t take one more amusement-park-romping step.
I had never heard of this brand or product before, but am I ever thankful that I was asked to review it – because I love it!
Not only did the Vichy Capital Soleil 50 Sunscreen protect our skin from the sun, but it also smelled delightful! I even used it on my daughter and her little cousins. This mousse-like lotion was so easy to apply the kids could put it on themselves, unlike spray sunscreens that require adult assistance. It wasn’t greasy or oily. It just felt good! Because Vichy Capital Soleil 50 Sunscreen is water resistant we were still protected when we decided to cool off in the pool.
Like I said at the beginning of my review, I have never been excited about a sunscreen before. But, I’m actually looking forward to the first warm, sunny day (now that I’m home) just so I can use my Capital Soleil 50 Sunscreen again.
