Soleil Toujours Sun and Skin Care

I’ve recently had the pleasure to try Soleil Toujours skin and sun care. There are a few reasons this brand is unique, and should be on your radar. Soleil Toujours combines nature, science, and innovation into elegant and beautifying skin care. They offer mineral based sunscreen actives and good for your skin ingredients. The brand’s products are free of parabens, phthalates, SLS, propylene glycol, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance and color. They are also coral reef safe, hypoallergenic, vegan and gluten-free. Sounds great right?

Soleil Toujours proprietary Eco Sun Complex includes red algae, vitamin c ester, vitamin e and bisabolol which provide antioxidant and anti aging benefits. Eco Sun Complex also fights to reduce UV induced DNA damage. The ingredients in these unique products are in some of the best creams and serums you will find. Soleil Toujours utilizes Resveratrol, sodium hyaluronate, glycosaminoglycans, pentapeptides, turmeric extract, apple stem cells, green tea leaf extract, rosehip seed oil, pomegranate seed oil and argan oil in their products.

I have tested 4 items from the line, but I will need to wait until warmer weather before I can test more thoroughly. Spring has just sprung here in the Northeast!

    I am curious about your experience with these products. Will there be a follow up post?

    • Amber

      Yes definitely! I am hoping we have some sun (I’d even take a non rainy day!!) very soon!!

  • marciaf

    My blog partner is the bronzing queen so I’ll have to share this post with her.

  • erikatheicyone

    They lost me at Octinoxate. That is not a mineral sunscreen. How can a company claim to make good for your skin products and then include chemical sunscreen? Nope.

    I hate wearing sunscreen because it, well, smells like sunscreen! Always looking for something to change my mind about it, because it’s really important to wear it, especially here in Florida.
