GIVENCHY Le Soin Noir UV Compact Protection SPF40 review


Renowned for being the height of luxury, GIVENCHY is expanding the Le Soin Noir range with an innovative addition: the GIVENCHY Le Soin Noir UV Compact Protection SPF40. The marbled cream compact (yes – it really is black and white in colour) takes SPF to a whole new level, offering broad-spectrum protection against solar rays and pollutants, captured in a silky smooth texture and a stunning application process. Personally, I have never experienced such a luxurious sunscreen before, and the host of skincare benefits inside make the striking GIVENCHY SPF even more enticing…


The Most Important Thing About This Sunscreen Is…

Combining skin-loving ingredients, broad-spectrum sun protection and an incredible aesthetic, the GIVENCHY Le Soin Noir Protection SPF40 has a cream-in-balm texture that sinks into the skin for a lightweight finish. Formulated with 94% natural ingredients, the complex works to strengthen the skin and leave an immediate natural glow.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re looking to enhance your daily SPF routine and make the process feel that little bit more luxurious, you’ll love the innovative and stylish designer sponge applicator included in the GIVENCHY UV Compact. The SPF is perfect to keep with you at all times, in your bag or travel case as the innovative formula can be applied throughout the day even on top of makeup!

The Formula:

Offering a high level of protection against UVA and UVB rays, the SPF40 or PA +++ formula is enriched with 94% natural ingredients, including black sap from vital algae to strengthen the skin barrier’s resistance to harmful rays, regenerating the skin so it’s strong and healthy. A natural but illuminated finish is created by red luminescent algae, which works to regulate sebum to target excess oil production, giving your skin a radiant glow that isn’t at all greasy – the algae actually helps to reduce shine and aid photoaging correction.


The Texture

GIVENCHY’S UV Compact feels as luxurious as it looks, thanks to its innovative cream-in-balm formula.

But don’t be fooled by the slippery balm-like texture inside the compact; once applied to the sponge applicator, the formula effortlessly smooths across your face, leaving behind a powdery cream that creates a soft matte finish.

The Finish

Although the SPF’s design is a striking black and white marble, the two stark colours fade to be totally invisible on the skin – no grey or white tinge here! The balmy texture absorbs instantly to leave a smooth true-to-skin finish with a subtle radiance.


How Should You Apply It?

Swirl the included GIVENCHY sponge into the compact and sweep the SPF over your face and neck. You can use your fingers or the sponge to press into the skin for immediate absorption. For touch-ups throughout the day, the SPF can be pressed on top of makeup.

How Often Do You Need To Reapply?

For maximum protection, it’s recommended to reapply your SPF every 2 hours and after swimming. The GIVENCHY suncream’s compact style and fast-absorbing formula make on-the-go touch-ups effortless.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Matching the rest of the sleek black Le Soin Noir range, the GIVENCHY compact is sealed firmly shut by a spherical stopper, ensuring the cream is double sealed to avoid leaks on hot days. Within the first layer of the compact lies a large mirror and soft sponge applicator, making touch-ups effortless!
