Okay for facial sunscreen
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 trickverified purchaserGreat 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.
Amazing!The best matte sunscreen I've found. No need to apply powder over the top to blot (I have oily skin).
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.
Everyday essentialLove this for day to day use without the shine that you get with a lot of other sunscreens. My ultimate go to to the Ultra Fluid by la Roche posay because it’s not as thick but this is a close second!
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.
Best facial sunscreenI’ve been looking for a daily facial sunscreen that sits well under makeup and doesn’t make me break out and this is it.
I tried Ultra Violette and I wanted to love it so badly, but sometimes you have to cast aside the beautifully packaging and roll with the practical product in stead.
This absorbs into my skin so quickly. It’s not sticky and provides that SPF 50 that i...Read More
Not badI tried a sample of this as I was looking for a more mattifying sunscreen and it's not bad! It's quite heavy on the skin and doesn't settle for a few minutes but it does keep any shine away for a while.
not goodway too heavy for me, i didn't like the texture of this either
No shine all day!I use a lot of active ingredients on my skin so SPF is a must for me. My skin therapist recommended I try because of the high the SPF is and it's anti-shine properties. After using this for a few months now, I've definitely noticed that my skin is less shiny at the end of the day, even if I've been wearing makeup all day. The downside though is the application - it's quite a thick cream, which mak...Read More
Great sunscreen, not as lightGreat sunscreen, but just not for daily use.. too heavy!
I was after a light, dry touch sunscreen so will not use this for everyday but will use it occasionally.. but overall I gave 4 stars cuz of the high spf and not oily feeling afterward
Best face sunscreenI love this product!
I hate the feeling of sunscreen on my face so normally I avoid it. Most of the better feeling sunscreens are out of my price range but I wanted to try this brand after a recommendation and I love it.
Absorbs so well and leave no feeling on the skin.
It’s a great midrange price option (in my opinion)
Worth spending the extra $10
No breakouts with this SunscreenI really like this sunscreen, so many of them clog my pores or i have reactions to them. This one goes on nice, only slight downside is the absorbtion rate, it usually takes about 3-5 mins to fully soak in and go matte, but its not enough of a hassle to not buy it. I just pop it on as soon as i get out of the show and by the time im back in my bedroom getting ready its all soaked in. Haven't been ...Read More
The bestThis does exactly what it says. I have oily, acne prone and sensitive skin and this makes my skin almost matte, doesn't break me out and it absorbs quickly. Although, I have not had much luck with this under the makeup. I would highly recommend to get some samples and try out for yourself.
GreatThis leaves my oily skin matte but it flakes off a lot on my skin
AmazingI love this and use it every morning on my face, neck and hands for sun protection. It feels weightless and absorbs quickly. no complaints
Great for all skin typesI received a few deluxe samples of this and it is brilliant. Works for my ageing dehydrated skin as well as for my teenage sons acne oily skin. Doesn’t break you out, protects to a really high degree and absorbs easily. Wonderful!
My Favourite SunscreenThis is probably the only sunscreen that doesn't make me breakout! It is super fast drying and doesn't leave a shine like other sunscreens do if you have oily skin. I am eager to try the other La Roche-Posay sunscreen's to see if they have the same effect. Overall super happy with this product
Best sunscreenI use three pumps of this every morning, this does my face, neck and chest easily. It’s moisturising enough to use alone, on still damp skin from a face mist.
YesThis sunscreen leave a matte finish and its not greasy. My makeup looks good on top of it. Definitely repurchase.
Life changing sunscreen!I have very pale skin and have had to wear sunscreen every day of my life -_- I hate applying sunscreen, hate anything thick and greasy on my face. This sunscreen has legit changed my life because I actually don't mind applying my sunscreen now! Its not greasy, sinks in super quick and makeup applies perfectly over the top. I have sensitive, oily acne-prone skin and this hasn't caused me any irrit...Read More
Non greasyI've always struggled finding a sunscreen that doesn't make my face look and feel greasy. It leaves a nice matte finish. I did expect the bottle to be bigger for what you pay. A bit expensive for me.
Like it but a bit too pricey for meThis is a pretty good face sunscreen that works well for me with tinted moisturiser. I think it's a bit pricey to be honest as I don't think it does anything amazing. Probably would only purchase when it's on sale
