This is the best sunscreen I have ever used! I have been using it for 2 weeks now, after my previous sunscreen gave me a chemical burn. Really does mattify the face and control oil, while giving, dare i say it, a glow - which is usually something oily skins like mine avoid but it just looks beautiful! Gentle enough for me to use all over my face (eyes included) and I find it doesn't sweat off either. I have worn it under makeup and haven't really had any problems - it can pill a bit around my cheeks which are predominately dry so that doesn't shock me. I would not wear it with any flash photography though as it being SPF50 will almost definitely flash back!

Could not make it work!
This sunscreen has left me so baffled. I have extremely oily skin that's also prone to breakouts so I have been unable to use sunscreen for most of my life. When I saw this one I really thought it was made for me. I really like the pump packaging. The sunscreen however just would not spread evenly on my skin. It would stick to one spot and dry quickly no matter how fast I moved. It left my skin with an unpleasant texture, looked so greasy and just felt so uncomfortable. I now use it on my neck and decolletage where it works perfectly.
Great for oily skin, but I don't like the textureI have oily skin and this is great with helping to mattify my face, but I don't personally like the dry touch texture as it makes it hard to spread over my face and I feel like I am pulling at my skin to spread it evenly across.
Absorbs so wellLove how quickly this sunscreen absorbs into the skin. Absolutely no greasy residue.
Looks beautiful under makeup.
Only downside is it has a weird smell, but you get used to it.

Good sunscreen, but a bit pricey.Good sunscreen with a high SPF factor. Better than most SPF 50+ sunscreens in how well it absorbs, but it's a little pricey for the amount that you receive.

Great ProductAwesome product, goes on really smooth and doesn't make my face oily, works really well under makeup too!
Great for oily skin - but not for dark skin tonesThe only sunscreen I can use without looking like a shiny mess. Never breaks me out, and I used to be scared of sunscreen for that very reason. Works well under makeup and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. However, my friend who has darker skin has found she can’t use it because it leaves a white sheen on her face.
The only sunscreen I will ever useHaving oily skin type the thoughts of applying a sunscreen is painful. However this sunscreen has changed my life, literally. Apart from sun protection factor, my skin is not oily at all throughout the day. It keeps my makeup on all day without having to do a touch up. Highly recommend to anyone. What a great find!
Love the matte finish, not such a fan of the fragrance.I love that this sunscreen sinks in instantly - to the point that I have to apply it to parts of my face at a time or it dries too quickly for an even spread. It has great matte/non shiny finish and the pump is so handy for application. The price is great, and the I love the high SPF rating. My only concern is that the fragrance or another ingredient in the product irritates my skin slightly - I feel a faint burning/tingling sensation after application. It's not bad enough to stop using it but I think I'll purchase the sensitive version next time. Such a shame because I love the finish!
Non greasy sunscreenIdol for sensitive or oily skin. I don't like the sticky feelings from other sunscreen. This product is totally dry after applying.
Great sunscreen for the faceNever purchased this before but I was pleasantly surprised. It spreads evenly, soaks in well and leaves no greasy residue. Offers great sun protection as well. Would definitely recommend.
Non greasyThe best sunscreen for oily skin, leaves skin protected but not greasy. My only complaint is I wish it came in a bigger size.
AmazingThis sunscreen is great. It is not heavy or greasy like other sunscreens. It keeps me hydrated throughout the day. A great formula. Will purchase again!
Super high SPF skin saviour!If you're going out in the sun, you're going to need sunscreen, and if you don't want to look like a big oily mess, this is the sunscreen for you. It took a bit of getting used to, but now I love La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL 50+ Anti-shine for an everyday sunscreen, and carry it with me everywhere. Don't get this confused with some other multi-tasking moisturising anti-aging cream - this is just a sunscreen! You'll need to layer it with other products if you are wanting anything other than a high SPF and matte texture. I'll generally use it on top of another moisturising sunscreen, or just over serum and moisturiser. Can tend to pill on top of the skin depending on what else you've got on your face. But give this a try for a high power SPF hit, without the super shine!
My favourite sunscreenI personally love this sunscreen and have been using it for the past 6 months over spring and summer. It has definitely done the job from protecting my skin to leaving me with a matte look. It goes great under make up and non greasy
Left a film on my faceDefinitely protected my skin which is very sensitive to the sun but I found that after a few hours if I touched my skin, the sunscreen kind of came off in little bits and felt slightly sticky. Probably won't purchase again.
Product pillingWhile this sunscreen is non-greasy, it's thick mattifying formula makes it difficult to apply all over the face.
I have been using it every day for nearly three weeks now and while I haven't broken out, I have experienced product pilling immediately after applying it, every time.
As someone with extremely fair skin and an oily T-zone, I really wanted to love this sunscreen, but its tendency to 'ball up' means I probably won't purchase it again.
Not greasy and soaks in perfectlyThis is my fav sunscreen Ive tried so far. It doesnt leave a greasy layer and makeup sits on top of it super well. It also doesnt leave a white cast on my skin (though I am generally pretty pale).
not oily or dryThis sunscreen is quite different from many other sunscreens on the market. It doesn't leave my skin greasy nor dry. It keeps me hydrated without making me irritated with the application process
ExcellentNot heavy or oily like other sunscreens. 50+ SPF if a bonus. Works well under mineral powder. Disappears into the skin quickly. Will continue to buy.
Not oily like other sunscreensIt is a light weight formula and you don’t even feel it after few seconds. I never liked other sunscreens which are too thick in the face and make my combination skin oily really bad. This is a keeper.
Bit difficult to spread on the faceAs this dry's super quickly , it can be a bit difficult to use on the face. I find it left a white cast on my tan complexion.
The dry texture , even though I felt would be preferable for my oily skin would work well. however it did not .
I did break out with small bumps as well.
Non greasyThis sunscreen is great for under my makeup, it's not heavy or greasy.
Good for sun protectionThis is a bit too thick for my liking however i do really like the fact that its 50+ which is essential for summer
Great coverageThis does not feel oily, doesn't leave a white cast on the skin and goes under makeup well. Would definitely recommend
Dry and non greasyThe formula seems quite thick and white when you pump it out, but it blends so nicely and you can’t feel it at all on your skin. Great base for makeup. The bottle is also great, with a pump dispenser on a soft squeeze bottle that stands upside down.
Sinks InThis sunscreen is great especially in the hot Aussie weather when I need a high SPF level to protect my skin.
This sinks right into my skin and leaves no greasy residue feelings behind, works amazing under my makeup and helps keep my combo skin a little less oily for longer.
Great purchase, no regret.
Best sunscreenI have been a user of La-Roche-Posay sunscreens for a few years and just purchased this one and its amazing. I have, dry combination skin and I don't even notice I'm wearing it, it hasn't got a sun screen smell or feel at all and has a great matte finish. It doesn't create any problems with makeup either. My new favourite!
Great ProductI have combination oily skin and this sunscreen smoothly goes on my skin without the feeling of having a heavy layers like some other sunscreen does. I definitely will rebuy.
Great SunscreenI have combination oily skin and most sunscreen makes my face feels so cakey. This one smoothly covers my face without sunscreen feeling. Definitely worth the money.
best sunscreen for oily skinBoth my husband and my brother love this sunscreen. Its oil free with high sun protection. When it comes to sun protection, you can't go wrong with La Roche-Posay.
My faveLP make some of the nicest sunscreen products that I have tried lately. I’ve had issues reacting to other brands but have had no reactions from any of the LP products.
I love this sunscreen. Sinks in easily. Goes well under make-up. Does not irritate my skin. Will definitely re-purchase this product. I only wish it kept my skin more matte as I’m a bit shiny by the end of the day but for an spf with 50+ I’m probably never going to be 100% shine free. I think this is my favourite spf product that they make
My Summer Fav!Received a sample of this and I turned up my nose. Thinking, yep, another sticky sunscreen that will not be easily absorbed. I recently went to Asia and took this with me and my golly gosh, i was so wrong to have judged this before trying. I have combination skin and sunscreens normally causes breakouts too. This product applied with ease, absorbed well and had a matte effect. Hence, my face didn't look like an oil slick & didn't cause breakouts. For the price too,,, just amazing!
Great for Oily skin!Bought this sunscreen a few weeks ago looking for a good matte sunscreen. I was worried I would burn through it quite quickly, which was sort of true because it comes in a relatively small container. However, the results are incredible. So much better than other matte sunscreens I've used. Keeps my face dry all day.
Great for oily skinI received these as a sample and took them with me on a trip to Fiji. I have very oily skin and wearing any type of sunscreen underneath my makeup makes it slide right off. But this was amazing, couldn't even tell I was wearing sunscreen, and it stayed put even in the humidity. Definitely recommend, doesn't feel greasy at all!
It is goodI got this as a sample and must say I like it as it is a good sun protection and is not heavy for my combination skin. I used it in the winter so I don't know if it works in the summer as well.
great productgreat for wearing under makeup. doesn't feel greasy or thick and no strong scent
like a primer!I love this!! I purchased it before a trip to Italy in the summer as an every day sunscreen. It goes on basically clear and after a few seconds is dry to the touch. It works perfectly as a make-up primer and actually gives your make-up something to grip too. No white cast at all and no moving through the day. Would definitely re-purchase.
Perfect For Oily SkinIdeal for oily / greasy skin. NOT appropriate for dry skin. It has near to no cast once applied. And my skin stays matte for hours!
Good product but not for meTexture wise, this is a good sunscreen with no horrible smell or thick greasing feeling - true to its name. However after using this daily for about 1 week, I was breaking out all over my face. Not sure which ingredient but I am allergic to this product. I have since given this to my mother who loves this products and has had no allergic reactions at all.
Why is this not getting raved about!?I was honestly so surprised this product isn’t being preached bout or advertised more. And it’s only got a few reviews!? I have never used spfs and this wasn’t a huge problem for me until I was put on acne meds that would make me burn from the slightest exposure to sun. It was becoming treacherous and the sun burns were making my skin worse, so I needed to try an spf which I was in no way keen about. I hate sunscreen I have a really unhealthy relationship with it, hate the texture, hate the smell...I tried another one of laroche’s sunscreen (which has hundreds of rave reviews...why?!) but it made me look so oilier and gross plus it didn’t seem to soak into the skin rather just sit on top, very unpleasant. I continued with use before I stumbled upon this. I was apprehensive considering my experience with the previous sunscreen, but praise the lordship this one is a godsend! So subtle for the skin, my skin drinks it up and not just that leaves my skin looking so fresh and blemish Free, and matte! But no dry sensation whatsoever. My skin looked so good I was sure it had tint in it, but nope just some kind of magic in the formula. Completely protects my skin (unlike the other one) I never get burnt and the pump is far more useful than its la Roche sunscreens siblings. May feel a bit thick upon application but just take ur time applying, a little spreads a lot, and it really does soak into the skin. AND NO WHITE CAST! Love this sunscreen!
Love this SPF!I have combination skin that gets oily on my forehead and nose so I'm always weary when using SPF. However SPF is a must for me so I'm always on the hunt for a great SPF that I can wear under makeup. This is absolutely amazing for under make up, does not leave a white cast, doesn't leave me looking oily and stays put under makeup. Absolutely love it, will be repurchasing.
I love this!It definitely reduces my oil throughout the day plus the tint is subtle yet makes me feel like I am wearing foundation (in a good make my skin look nice way; not in a heavy way). It is a little on the pricey side (for me anyway) but a little goes along way. The only comment I would make is that it hardens on the skin super quickly, so when applying, make sure you rub it in quickly.
The only SPF that works for my oily skin!FINALLY! A SPF that doesn't make me look like I've been for a swim in canola oil!!! Doesn't effect the texture of my makeup either!
My SPF go to.My skin is acne prone and so I'm so apprehensive to put sunscreen on my face in fear of break outs. Once I've applied my morning moisturizer, I pop this on top and it sinks beautifully into my skin. To all my acne friends – you will lovvvve this!
Great product, to oily for me :(A little goes a long way and I loved the way it made by face look after application however, I have very oily skin and I noticed how much more greasier my face was throughout the day. Otherwise, I had no breakouts and it didn't clog my pores.
Would suit someone with normal - dry skin
Very matte finishUpdate: Unfortunately, turns out it's caused an allergic reaction on my skin. I'm so bummed about this as I've never had that kind of reaction to any sunscreens previously. But I would still recommend it to those whose skin can tolerate it because it's a game changer if you have oily skin.
NOT LIKE OTHER SUNSCREENS!Finally I’ve found a sunscreen that isn’t oily/greasy!
This is absolutely amazing stuff - I can go 8 + hours and my skin stays matte and I have acne prone/oily skin!
Absorbs very quickly when I apply it to my face.
Normally by the end of the day my face would feel disgusting and look very greasy... But with this it basically looks the same as it did when I started the day!
It isn’t like anything I’ve ever used before, I’d highly recommend it to anybody, but especially those with oily skin.
Love this sunscreen!!I received this as a free sample and i’ll definitely be re-purchasing. It absorbs into the skin straight away and doesn’t feel oily in the slightest. Wearing make-up over the top wasn’t an issue at all, because you can’t tell that you’re wearing sunscreen! No residue at all
Brilliant SuncreenI love this suncreen! I have to use it because I am sensitive to other products and this is the only brand that does not sting or upset my skin. I am prone to adult acne and have rosacea on my cheeks. The touch dry version is fantastic, it is not greasy at all and does what it says it does, dries quickly. It is great under make up. Would highly recommend this product! High protection and goes on easily.
Perfect sunscreen for oily skinThis is an absolute gem for oily skin. Best sunscreen I’ve used for my skin type. It’s scent free and reasonably priced. Love love love it!
Great mattifying sunscreenI received some samples of this sunscreen with my recent Adore Beauty order. I love La Roche Posay products in general - I find them simple, effacious and reasonably priced. This sunscreen is no exception. It absorbs readily and leave the skin looking matte. It would be perfect for those with oilier skin types. I have deducted one star because it dries down so quickly that it is a little hard to rub in.
Great ProductI have oily combination skin, and never put on SPF because all products make me shiny and oily by the end of a work day. I have been using this product for a week, and I have to say it is alot better then most I have used.
I do get some shine, but I am comfortable in my skin and happy I found this product.
If you have oily skin this is amazingI had such trouble finding a foundation that didn't turn oily on me almost immediately. I tried double wear, huda, fenty, ysl all hours etc etc and they all looked so shiny on me, until I swapped my regular SPF from Mecca to this. Now whatever foundation I put on afterwards has its true finish and I don't get so oily so fast I'm so pleased!!
