A whitecast like Flashback Mary
Not as good as the Invisible FluidNot bad, but I find this one leaves a white cast and is much stickier than La Roche Invisible Fluid.
DisappointedWhile its a perfect SPF, I don't like the mattifying agent. It seems to suck serums etc back out and almost "siezes". Often feel dry (especially in aircon)
Best sunscreen for oily acne prone skinSunscreen never suits me for my skin type but this blends well and very much non greasy. Recommended for oily and acne-prone skins!
Great for oily skin, not so great for normal-to-dry skinMy skin is combination, and it is oily some days and dry on other days. I work in different environments each day/week, so it affects my skin. I found on the days I was oilier, this was great and blended in well. But when I was in aircon all day or had colder weather, and my skin was dry - it left a massive white cast and did not blend in at all. I think I'll give this one a miss next time.
Good productA very solid sunscreen that is reasonably affordable. I enjoy it more than some of the other sunscreens I have tried.
Perfect for oily skin.Finally a sunscreen that doesn't leave your skin with white patches and that feeling of greasiness.
I have extremely oily skin in my T-zone, but very dry around the lip area.
It is very hard for me to find products that hydrate my skin without leaving it to oily or too dry.
This sunscreen does it all. It has the highest SPF protection, plus hydration, plus mattifying effect = pe...Read More
This sunscreen is a game changerDidn't think I could ever get this excited about sunscreen but it is truly amazing. I have combination skin that can be more oily than dry, especially during the day. I wear this sunscreen every day on my face, neck and chest and I don't ever notice that I'm even wearing it. It glides on and under makeup it makes no difference to the look and feel of your foundation. It's light so there's none of ...Read More
I don't know how I feel about thisI received this as a sample with an order and it is so lightweight!!! It's quite a watery texture and then once you apply it, it looks like nothings even on your face! Maybe it's just because I'm not used to the consistency of it, but I found myself applying multiple layers because I was doubting the SPF protection it provides as there was literally no evidence of it being on my face whatsoever.
Almost perfectThis dries to a lovely matte, velvety finish which is a great make-up base. I didn’t get a white cast. However, it’s very thick and hard to spread around, so I got some irritation just from rubbing. I think I just need to work on my application technique! It’s slightly drying because of the matte finish, but I’m going to keep trying because the it’s so nice to not be greasy, maybe with a moisturis...Read More
Good for everydayRhis is a good non irritating sunscreen but did enf up congesting my skin around the eyes and sides of the face. I have a good cleansing and skin routine so was definitely the culprit unfortunately.
One for hubbys work bag
Shine free!Doesn't feel heavy on the skin or make me shiny.
A whitecast like Flashback MaryIt left a whitecast and wasn't easy to blend in. It was actually quite dry so perhaps it would work for someone with extremely oily skin. I went out for a run wearing this and it kind of sweat off. Unfortunate that it didnt work for me because I was looking forward to it.
good sunsreenI used it as my last step of skin routine but before make up. I also used it as a primer and it is compatible with other make up products. It's not feeling sticky as others may do. recommend for daily face sunscreen!
Great for outdoor workPurchased for my partner who is prone to breakouts and works outside. Does not cause breakouts and does a great job at protecting from the sun. Also dries quickly so no sunscreen run off into eyes.
My Favourite SunscreenThis sunscreen is perfect for oily skin - It really has a dry touch finish! I've also noticed improvements in my skin since I have been using this. Will definitely continue to repurchase :D
Good for sensitive skinMy sister is allergic to a lot of different mainstream sunscreen brands, and this is the only one she does not get a reaction to.
LOVEThis is so wonderful. I think it’s so nice and it blends into my skin really well. It doesn’t leave a white cast or anything and it seems to protect my skin really well.
Not for meI got this as a gift from a friend and was disappointed as it never mixed well with any other skin care products put on prior causing products to go gluggie. Only time this product worked was when applied by itself.
A good sunscreenI have combination skin and regularly use the LRP cream SPF. I find this harder to spread than the cream and find this slightly greasier. My makeup tends to slip around more with this
Great productIt offers great protection, its light in the skin, the pump makes it super easy to apply and it doesnt leave white traces. It does say its anti-shine but unfortunately soon after applying this, my T-zone is shining and greasy. Overall its an amazing product and would reccomend for dry or normal skin
does the trickGreat dry-touch sunscreen, however I find that you have to work pretty quickly before it starts pilling. I have skin on the drier side so I might opt for something a bit more hydrating next time.
normalThis sunscreen can pill on my skin and leave a slight white cast. It also hurts my eyes when it gets in
Great productIt’s a great product, Many dermatologists recommend it. Indeed It has a matte finish. You still have to spread it well otherwise it leaves the whitish skin. I find it quite resistant but I only use it when I’m holidays . The rest of the time, I use another sunscreen that is easier to manage with the morning routine and makeup.
AmazingFor oily skin this is one of the best sunscreens out there. Makes my skin matte and sits well under the makeup too.
Okay for facial sunscreenDoesn't blend well so I felt I had to use a lot of product which left my skin feeling greasy, but it's better than nothing!
Non comedogenicStill searching for the perfect SPF. This is non comedogenic which is really great. There is little to no smell and it leaves no white cast as long as you let it soak in for the recommended time. It’s definitely the most Matte / dry touch formula that I have come across yet, but it kind of sets or dries very quickly whilst applying so you have to do it really quickly before you start dragging your...Read More
great sunscreenA good go to sunscreen. I feel well protected from the sun with this sunscreen
Matte sunscreen loveSo I started using the skin care a month ago and using retinol I wanted a stronger sunscreen but didn’t want greasy shiny mess and this product has been perfect and it seems to give my make up something good to stick to. I’m more than happy
Just as normalI bought this one to try if it still makes my eyes watery, yes it does but less than many others. So won't repurchase.
Truly great spfI love this spf! I'm really picky and will only use spf 50...love that this has a slight mattifying effect - although a note - you may need to use a moisteriser underneath and it doesn't blend very well and has a slightly thicker consistency.
Only good for oily skinI bought this for my husband as he has oily skin. I also give it a try as I love trying new sunscreen. However it does not suit my combination skin as I feel it's a bit thick and hard to apply. My husband, otherwise, loves it as it does not make his skin shiny or greasy. Well done La-Roche Posay for producing such good sunscreens.
mattifyingThis keeps my skin matte but it does pill
Hate it!I hate this so much! It is hard to spread as it dries so quickly so it leads to a lot of tugging at the face. It pills even when I let my other products sit for an hour or more before applying it and it also leaves a significant white cast. On the plus side it does leave you matte and somewhat prevents shine like it says (though I don't think it would for really oily skin) and it doesn't break me ...Read More
Reduces Shine and Dries WellThis sunscreen is great for oily skin as it dries down without shine and stays all day without becoming shiny. However I do notice my skin looks more white after application, however this isn’t really a problem when worn u der makesup.
Not so anti-shineDon't love the smell and also doesn't sit well on my skin; also found this still a bit greasy despite it being anti-shine.
Not for meI found that this dries way too quickly on the skin and doesn't allow you enough time to apply correctly and it pills quite a lot on first application as well as when I re-apply. This has also caused me to loose a few eyebrow hairs as it gets stuck there when I apply due to drying so quickly. I have tried a few different application methods and not seeing any improvement in the result. I am quite ...Read More
My favourite sunscreen in AustraliaThis is so good! It doesn't leave a shine, if anything its a little matte. I don't find it pills and keeps me protected from the sun. I will repurchase every year!
Very indeed dry touch!I will forever be amazed at how this sunscreen dries down to a dry powdery touch on its own. I absolutely hate the tackiness and oily feel that sunscreen tends to leave. Sometimes I mix my full coverage foundation with this and surprisingly, the texture and coverage isn't much affected at all. Great if you decide on some days you want a slight tint with your sunscreen, and you can change it to you...Read More
great for oily skinworks great for oily skin, not greasy on the skin. it is a thick consistency so i find i do need to warm up the product before applying, and also always need to make sure that my skin and hands are dry before applying or else its hard to spread out. one of the few sunscreens that hasn't broken out my sensitive skin too
sunscreen for oily skinI have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. This sunscreen comes out quite thick but absorbs nicely into the skin and the only sunscreen I've found that actually leaves a matte finish. It goes well under my makeup and maintains my oily skin keeping it matte the whole day. Love this sunscreen and it has not broken me out. No white cast, no strong sunscreen smell and doesn't melt off. Love this for my ...Read More
Bf loves isMy boyfriend was very hesitant to start wearing an SPF daily, fearing it would clog is acne-prone skin and just feel gross and sticky all day. I bought him this one and he's happily using it. Haven't experienced and breakouts from it and the dry-touch is a wearable finish for someone who hates sticky sunscreen. The pump is really nice to use too. I'm sure he would repurchase.
Really strong smell and doesn't sit well on skinI bought this sunscreen as I have very oily and acne prone skin and some friends recommended this to me. It did a good job with not blocking my pores. However it has a very unpleasant sunscreen smell that makes my eyes water and it doesn't sit well on my skin. Sometime during the day I find that the sunscreen become little particles that makes it look like I have dead skin. Was a bit disappointed ...Read More
Love itThis is my best friend in summers. It controls oils, leaves my skin matte and serves as a great base for my makeup. I have combination, acne prone, sensitive skin and my skin loves it.
Combination, blemish prone skinThis sunscreen works great for my skin, doesn't break me out has no white cast. Layers well over the Ordinary moisturizer and under my revlon colour stay foundation for combo skin. Will use quite quickly though as is a small amount for price but i would repurchase .
must havethis you must have in your handbag or car. great travel product and feels so light weight on the skin while being fully protected!
Great for oily/sensitive skinAffordable, very easy to apply (comes with a pump) and pretty much scent free.
Great sunscreenNot a big fan of wearing sunscreen however this one has no smell and has more of a moisturiser texture to it. I usually use a 30+ but go up to 50+ in summer and this is my go-to. SPF is extremely important and I’m very happy with these product ingredients as well. Nice product.
what i want forProtection is so important.
This seems to last forever applies very well and easy, works perfectly and such a reliable brand. I will definitely repurchase for next summer.
Best sunscreen for oily skinThis is my absolute favourite sunscreen for my oily skin. It's mattifying, doesn't leave white streaks, but you have to apply it quite fast and focus on one area of the face at a time as it soaks in quickly. However, looove!
Great protectionA very high protection sunscreen. I do like it, but it does leave my skin slightly white, so I find it best used on days when I am outdoors exercising. So its great for days when I go running or long walks.
Your average sunscreenThis sunscreen is good as it is just your average sunscreen. I typically hate sunscreen because of the smell and feel of it. This one isn't too bad for that but I do use as little as possible because I don't love the feel. All sunscreens generally have the same smell and feel but this one isn't too heavy. Sunscreen is super important for your skin so I will continue to use it despite my discomfort...Read More
Works as sunscreen, but quite heavy.Not the biggest fan of this product! Usually I love La Roche Posay products but this one was a bit hit and miss in terms of thickness and smell. It was really thick to lather and made me feel as though I was slapping any sunscreen on my face. It also has a strong sunscreen smell, which isn’t the most pleasant when you are wearing to work!
sunscreenLove the pump nozzle - so easy to apply. The SPF 50 is great and it looks matte not greasy like many other sunscreens can look
Definitely dry-touchI have combination skin and find my T-zone becomes really oily throughout the day and thought I'd give this a go. It's less of a 'gel' than I imagined it to be, and goes on quite thick and white. Initially I regretted buying it until I used more product so I could rub it into my skin more (it dries relatively quickly, and so was hard to spread with limited product). When rubbed in properly it comp...Read More
Okay SunscreenThis sunscreen leaves a sheen of pretty obvious white cast on my skin. I have a naturally tanned skin and this sunscreen is just a no for me - although it does an amazing job at keeping my skin matte after application, the white cast is way too noticeable (2-3 shades lighter than my neck)!
Certainly dries quicklyI wasn’t sure if I was going to like this sunscreen or not but with my previous one having been discontinued I needed to find an alternative. I purchased two la roache product’s and this is definitely my favourite. It has a nice pump to use which dispenses a good amount. It also goes on extremely easily and dries nearly instantly creating a smooth barrier. I love the way it didn’t make my face lo...Read More
Extremely mattifyingI have an oily t-zone and bought this because of the amazing reviews, but this product is not for me. The mattifying effect is instant, making it extremely difficult to spread over my face before it "dries out". In order to get my usual full face coverage, I end up using 2-4x the amount of product just to spread it on, and this sunscreen isn't cheap. The mattifying effect also leaves my skin bone...Read More
Genius sunscreen for oily skinI have super sensitive skin with an oily T zone, and am prone to dryness everywhere else, so it's extremely difficult for me to find products which address all three of these issues without exacerbating any of them. This product is excellent, and provides a matte finish base for foundation without irritating, as well as SPF50+ coverage. Fantastic!
GoodI have incredibly oily skin and this helps with oil control and mattifies my skin. Only downside: pilling and slight cast
Best SunscreenI have been using La Roche-Posay sunscreen for at least 4 years now since returning back to live in Australia. I have combination skin but prone to breakouts around my jaw. Before discovering this brand other sunscreens would break me out and make my skin feel so oily. I read a review on La Roche-Posay sunscreen on a beauty website and decided to give it a try and I haven't turned back ever since!...Read More
Fine but tested on animalsIf I was just going on the feel and degree of protection this sunscreen provided, I would give it 3.5 or 4. It offers some moisturising benefits and the light colour is fine but a little pasty. I was happy to repurchase until I found out La Roche Posay is sold in China where all imported beauty products have to be tested on animals. IMO no product is worth causing pain or death to animals.
Best sunscreen for oily skin and humid weatherI live in SEQLD and have oily skin, which translates to makeup running down my face on hot an humid days. Not with this sunscreen underneath! It keeps everything in place and helps with the oil in my T zone. It won't give you a white ghost like look (maybe at first, but I promise it will penetrate your skin and disappear) and will still make your skin glowy (not shiny!). It won't keep your oil in ...Read More
Will try to use up...I found this to be okay. I bought it from all the good reviews and because it is fragrance free. It is much more sunscreeny in consistency. I prefer a more moisturiser feel to my sunscreen. I work out a lot and I found that it would sweat off with a yellow tinge on my clothes sometimes. Not a huge problem but there are definitely other sunscreens out there I would prefer.
Very thickDefinitely oil free, but I found this much thicker than I expected, and pills if you don’t rub it in quickly enough. I’ve found even for my oily skin if I’m applying in the morning I need moisturiser underneath to help me blend it in. Will probably try another brand after this bottle
Perfect for oily skinThis product is perfect for oily skin. It controls the oil well and it is not greasy or comedogenic. I love that it has high UVA protection. I wear it every day to protect my skin regardless of the weather!
okI don't wearing this on its own as it can pill, leave a white cast and be hard to rub. However it applies nicely on top of a small amount of tinted sunscreen
didn't work for my skin typevery mattifying but really dried out my skin
sunscreen for sensitive skinI found this sunscreen to be not super oily when using it, so its really good for someone who hates the oiliness of sunscreen. I do have to say that this sunscreen is great for sensitive skin as this sunscreen never flares up by eczema or red patches and doesn't hurt when I'm going through an eczema flare up/break out phase
I will be 100% buying this again
Best!best sunscreen I've ever used. everything else has always made my skin burn in patches. it does give a slight white sheen, or increases paleness maybe, but I am very fair anyway so don't mind that.
Not good for dry skin typesI originally purchased this thinking it was appropriate for dry skin types, which it is not. It is much better for oily/combo skin as dries very matte, and irritated my sensitive skin. My boyfriend now uses this sunscreen, and thinks it is okay but pretty thick.
Good for oily skinI really like this sunscreen but I find that it may or may not pill or leave a white cast depending on what I use underneath this.
Good Sunscreen!I got this as a sample and it doesn't have the sunscreen smell and is super moisturizing! I was worried it was going to dry out my skin but it didn't!
GoodThis is very mattifying for my oily skin but it does leave a white cast and pills up
Good sunscreen - very dry touchThis sunscreen is good if you have oily skin or hate the oiliness of most sunscreens.
I am outside a lot so I like the high SPF, however I also have dry skin and this applies almost too dry...it feels grippy like a primer after application, so it would be a good base before makeup.
I don't mind this as it prevents my face looking greasy and shiny.
Best western sunscreenTo be honest most la roche posay sunscreens are superior to any other western sunscreen, they feel relatively light weight, but leave a little greasy residue but its not as bad as some sunscreens. As i have dry skin i dont mind a bit of residue however i dont think im going to get this again, korean and japanese sunscreens are for me far superior especially if you have oily skin. Also its not that...Read More
Great sunscreenI like this product but I find it still leaves a slight greasiness to my face, but compared to other sunscreens it is far superior. A nice thin texture.
Excellent dry touchI love this sunscreen. It actually gives a beautiful velvet dry touch which is perfect for me! I hate greasy feeling sunscreens and this isn’t at all.
My go-to SPFI wanted a sunscreen without fragrance and this one is perfect. It dries rather matte and leaves zero white sheen. It's also very, very light, and doesn't feel like a sunscreen
Nice, non greasy sunscreenI like that I can apply it to my face and not have that oily sunscreen look.
Finally a non-greasy SPF!I bought this on a whim and took it on a trip, not expecting very much. But I could not believe how well this product worked! I have combination/oily skin that gets ridiculously shiny, but this keeps the shine at bay all day. It's lovely and lightweight, and does not break me out. An added bonus is that it's 50 SPF so it's perfect for Australian summers.
Great sunscreen for oily skinMy skin is notoriously oily and a shiny forehead is just a part of my day. I found when I used this sunscreen my t-zone was noticeably more matte than usual and the oils wouldn't start to show until a few hours later. A part of it being so mattifying is that it clings to any dry patches which isn't great for my combination skin!
Great for oily skinLove this sunscreen! It is the first sunscreen I have found that doesn't leave white (ghosting) marks all over my face. It goes on smoothly and does not leave an oily film on your face. The bottle is great value and lasts for ages.
ExcellentLove the velvety dry touch this gives wears great under foundation too
Good sun protectionThis has a very dry application so works well with oily/combination skin. Even too dry to use for oily skin. No greasy feel though and sets straight away which is good for make up application. If anything the skin lacks room to breathe with this product but a good sun protection overall.
Nice but pillsNice sunscreen if you're not wearing anything else on your skin.... pills terribly with all of my moisturizers, serums and makeup; even if I leave 10 minutes between applications and change the order of product.
Love some of the other products from this brand, but this one will have to be left for my boyfriend to wear.
GoodThis works for my oily and acne prone skin and helps with mattifying. However it can pill and make my skin white
Good for summerThis is for a great sunscreen for summer which I usually use on my neck & arms. Personally I prefer the ultra-light Anthelios fluid for my face as it doesn't leave as much of a white cast.
too matteI thought this would be great for my oily skin but I find it too powdery and matte feeling. good for those hot days where you get way too oily though!
GreatThis leaves a white cast on my face but does not leave a white cast on my neck or hands. Good for the neck but I do not prefer the dry look on my face with this
perfect for my sensitive skinI'm really impressed with this, and believe me, I love it. My skin is very sensitive.I was looking to ditch wearing makeup on week days and switch to a solid SPF to let my skin rest and get some proper protection. This is doing exactly what I had dreamed. It doesn't irritate me, hasn't caused any clogs or breakouts and literally feels like nothing is on my face. For the first hour or so, my skin ...Read More
Good for oily skinThis is the first sunscreen I have found that works well on my oily skin.
I have sensitive skin, but this does not cause any irritation. Very happy with it.
Nice sunscreenThis is a thicker textured sunscreen, and despite this it doesn’t feel greasy on the skin even after a full day wearing it. I assume this is to the dry touch formulation that is referred to in the name. I always wear a moisturiser underneath and I think it would be too drying on my dehydrated but combo skin without it, but I’m worried about becoming too oily in the t zone if I tried the moisturis...Read More
A must haveThis product has been my face sunscreen for many years now, and I can see it staying for a lifetime. Gives a dry effect on the skin, excellent sun protection and is value for money.
NiceThis sunscreen gives a matte finish and it didn’t block my pores.
No burning, no breakoutsI am super pale, and have oily skin which is a nightmare combination in a place like Australia where sunscreen is a non-negotiable. Prior to this I used the O Cosmedics Mineral Pro, which I loved (the added zinc is great for redness), but I found that in summer I was still getting burned. My aesthetician recommended this to me as a more protective suncreen/moisturiser that wouldn't lead to break...Read More
One of the best!While it has a thick consistency, it is spreadable and is quickly absorbed into the skin leaving a no-shine matte finish. You can barely feel it on and best of all it doesn’t cause me to break out!
Brilliant but thickI love this product. I bought it and found I needed too much to get the cover I needed (3 pumps for my face AND I have a beard, so less skin exposed). it doesn't spread very easily but once it's on, WOW. No shiny face, no heavy feeling... after going after a few other products and not getting the result I wanted, I now use this every day and don't look back.
If you need to spread...Read More
Just what I was looking forI have been looking for a good every day sunscreen for ages....I often wouldn't wear SPA (bad I know!) because the ones I had tried were either too thick, didn't sit right under my make up, became flaky when I tried to rub my foundation in or made my skin feel super greasy (I usually dryish skin with a t-zone that tends to get a bit oily).
I have found this product to be perfect for...Read More
Dry to touchThis has a thick consistency which makes it hard to blend in but at the same time it has a very dry touch for oily skin types that gives you a no-shine matte finish which is great under make-up. It is surprising though, it feels like you aren't even wearing sunscreen which is exactly what you want.
I love it!I really enjoy using this sunscreen, it doesn’t leave a purple cast on my skin, and it isn’t greasy which is great for daily use. It is thicker in consistency but I don’t mind that.
