Non oily sunscreen - 14-01-2019 by

Lovely texture, non oily, effective sunscreen.

Just the best! - 07-01-2019 by

This is a light- textured, spreadable fluid sunscreen that lasts a surprisingly long time, given the size of the bottle! I always slather on sunscreens (Australia, eh!) but even so this product has lasted a good 4 months with everyday use. A bit too expensive for using on the body, but for the face it’s brilliant. I’m 63 with dry/combo skin and have had no new pigmentation problems since I started using it, and the other small ones are already fading- win!

Lightweight and fast absorbing - 04-01-2019 by

This sunscreen is perfect for when I'm in a rush in the morning - it's quick to apply and soaks in quickly unlike those thicker sunscreens. I only apply it to my arms/neck though, so I can't attest to whether it works well on the face.

Must have for summer - 04-01-2019 by

feel good on skin, moisturize and not sticky at all.

Good sunscreen - 24-12-2018 by

This is one of the better SPF products I have used. It is a little sticky/tacky on the skin, and has a tendency to pill skincare products underneath. It also leaves my face shiny when I put makeup over the top, and I have dry/dehydrated skin. Although there's a few negatives to this, I still feel like this is a very high quality product and my makeup sits on it well. I am interested in trying other SPF in this range. Definitely worth trying even if you have dry skin!

Only ok - 24-12-2018 by

It's nice, not the best not the worst. I think I have about 4 La roche-posay sunscreens in my rotation and this ones a good car one as it's pretty easy to apply on the go and isn't overly greasy but due to the cost unless you get a sample and love it or in a kit I wouldn't say it was worth it.

Great sunscreen - 20-12-2018 by

I have combination skin, and on summer i get oily on my tzone. This product really works in protecting your skin. Scent is ok, not too strong like the other sunscreen. This didn’t break me out and didn’t clog my pores which i really like. It said it’s ultra light which is light compare to other sunscreen but you i still feel a bit of stickiness When i apply it. So will be using this on the winter. Will repurchase again as this is the only brand i trust on sunscreens.

Nice but expensive - 12-12-2018 by

Really nice and super light sunscreen! I tend to save this for my face as it's quite expensive to use on your body

O.K. - 10-12-2018 by

Not the best spf I tried but it does the job. I find the smell offensive and after a while of applying my skin becomes oily. It is okay, but I will not be buying again.

Loved it at first... - 05-12-2018 by

When I first started using this I thought my hunt for the perfect sunscreen was over - it's lightweight, sinks in beautifully, works well under makeup, i didn't get burnt and it didn't cause end of day reaction bumps. However after about a week my skin started to dry out significantly with increased redness. This was the only thing I changed in my routine, so I stopped using it and my skin went back to normal. I am very sensitive and prone to dryness though.

Does Not Live Up To The Hype! - 05-12-2018 by

I have combination skin which is sensitive.
I really wanted to like this because it was recommended by an Australian man who is a Dermatologist online and quite famous.
But is ANOTHER reject in my sunscreen quest. Here’s why:
1. Yes it is thin and very liquid, but it does not go matt or even satin-finish but is very oily and VERY shiny.
2. This product is a DISASTER as a makeup base. Your makeup will settle in your pores and natural lines. Truly awful.
3. Even without makeup it is BAD because of the blotting you need to do to get rid of the hideous shiney/oily look (which I am guessing reduces the effectiveness of the SPF) ...... OR you are forced into wearing makeup with a ton of powder over the top.
NB* I probably was using even less than the recommended amount.

Amazing - 29-11-2018 by

This is my holy grail sunscreen. I have fair, oily, sensitive skin and finding an everyday sunscreen with high SPF that doesn't give me acne has been impossible. This is very runny and does leave a bit of shine, but a little powder fixes that. It also smells a little funny at first, but I've gotten used to it and no longer notice. Well worth the money.

is it supposed to be with exfoliating pieces? - 29-11-2018 by

can't use it at all. after any moisturiser or serum it lays with small exfoliating pieces. not even dreaming about putting anything above it.
Very upset

Why is it gritty? - 28-11-2018 by

I'm a bit disappointed in this product. I'm sure it does what it's meant to and I'm using it daily, but every time I put it on, it's gritty, very unpleasant. I do like the compact bottle it comes in and the squirt outlet means you only use what you need.

Best sunscreen - 27-11-2018 by

This product works like a dream. I have oily and pigmented skin so finding a strong sunscreen is necessary, but also a nightmare. This sunscreen is really light weight, doesn't leave residue or the ghostly sunscreen look. I do need to use a powder over the top to get rid of some shine, but it's by far the best sunscreen I've found

Great everyday product - 05-11-2018 by

I love this sunscreen, it goes on easily and has a nice, inoffensive fragrance. It is quite tinted so I often wear it without makeup on top. A little bit goes a long way!

Lovely product - 29-10-2018 by

LP 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.

The best face SPF for day to day wear - 26-10-2018 by

I have been using this product for the past 4 years after it was recommended to me, and haven't looked back. I use this everyday before work under makeup and save my physical sunscreen for the weekends when I go makeup free. It has a light and fluid texture which my makeup sits on top of perfectly. It comes in a small bottle but lasts ages as you only need a small amount.

Does the job well. - 22-10-2018 by

I only use this sunscreen on rushed days or special daytime occasions when I don’t have time to deal with the white cast of my other mineral, zinc sunscreens. This gem goes on colourless and blends into my skin well. The reason I can’t use this sunscreen everyday is because after consecutive days of use, my sensitive, dermatits prone skin starts flaring up. You can practically smell the alcohol in this once it hits your face and looks a little greasy on the skin, but aside from that; I like it better than white cast and sun damage.

Great sun protection - 22-10-2018 by

I love this sunscreen! Beautiful texture, quite fluid and easy to apply- just sinks in for a slightly matte finish that’s not chalky or drying. I was concerned that it would make my dehydrated skin feel tight and even more dried out, but it works beautifully with a serum/moisturiser underneath. I haven’t tried it under makeup as I don’t wear foundation during the day, but under a tinted bb cream it’s fabulous!

Does its job - 19-10-2018 by

A bit oily to my liking. Perfect for winter time when my skin gets drier. However, during summer time it will messed up my make up.

Good everyday sunscreen - 18-10-2018 by

While this sunscreen is certainly lighter in comparison to most, it still has quite a thick, sunscreeny texture when it comes out of the bottle. Once applied to the face, however, it settles in really nicely and feels very light. Works really well under makeup and has great coverage. Best of all, it hasn't broken me out like most sunscreens do. I like the bottle, a little goes a long way and so the bottle, while small, will last a long time.

Lightweight & great for sensitive skin - 18-10-2018 by

This lightweight sunscreen goes on well under makeup or just by itself. It doesn't cast a white mask and is one of the only sunscreens that my extremely sensitive skin will tolerate. Highly recommend.

Super light, invisible cover - 16-10-2018 by

I have really dry, dermatitis prone skin and I have allergies to a lot of cosmetic ingredients I don’t even know about. I need a good SPF coverage for my fair skin and thought I’d try La Roche-Posay as I use a moisturiser of theirs. The product is a super thin liquid which makes it easy to apply on the face, it sinks in right away and I’m able to apply my usual tinted moisturiser on top. My skin doesn’t have a reaction to it. The smell is pretty strong but that doesn’t bother me and doesn’t last, and the bottle is cute and compact- perfect for handbag or travel!

Great Sunscreen - 10-10-2018 by

This sunscreen layers wonderfully under makeup and doesn't leave my face feeling sticky at the end of the day like a lot of other sunscreens do. Would definitely recommend!

Love everything about this - 03-10-2018 by

The tint colour is great, it feels light on your skin but also like its protecting you. I am really happy with this sunscreen!

So light on your skin - 02-10-2018 by

I love that this sunscreen is high spf protection but isn’t oily at all on my skin! It’s so lightweight and also a good base to then apply make up to. So far hasn’t made me breakout either. Winner!

Light - 01-10-2018 by

Lightweight but strong. Great for under makeup too and doesn't ruin my look.

Sun Protection - 27-09-2018 by

This is a fantastic suncream with great protection, It is a good quality sun care product. I would recommend this product for daily sun protection.

Best Sunscreen - 26-09-2018 by

This is the best sunscreen I have ever used and I am obsessed! It is light, hydrating and doesn't have your typical sunscreen smell. After applying it, it disappears without any shine or grease. If anything, it does leave a dewy, moisturised look that is quite flattering. I love it and I highly recommend this for sensitive, dry/dehydrated skin types.

Best light-weight sunscreen - 24-09-2018 by

This is the best everyday sunscreen especially if you have oily and sensitive skin! I have never liked wearing sunscreen on my face and this has the perfect consistency as it just feels like your skin but better.

Great protection without heavy feeling - 24-09-2018 by

This is a great product, offering good sun protection without the feeling of your skin being clogged. Like all of the La Roche- Posay products I have tried, I am more than satisfied

Fantastic for everyday - 24-09-2018 by

If you're looking for an everyday sunscreen that is light and sits well with make-up, this is it. It mixes well with a lot of different foundations and has a high level of protection.

Light and effective - 18-09-2018 by

This sunscreen feels nice on my skin and does what it's supposed to do! I found the smell a bit offputting but it doesn't stick around for long

So light! Love the non-greasy formula! - 12-09-2018 by

Living in Queensland I need a high SPF sunscreen but having oily skin I've found it so hard to find one I'd wear comfortably.
This suncreen is so lovely and light! So so relieved to have a full coverage sunscreen and my skin still feels lovely and soft. Would 100% purchase again

Good lightweight sunscreen - 11-09-2018 by

I hate sunscreen as they always feel so heavy and greasy on my skin but this definitely is not, sits well and definitely feels light weight! Must buy for summer.

Hands down best sunscreen out there - 10-09-2018 by

This sunscreen is super lightweight and sits perfectly under make-up - you can hardly even tell you are wearing it. I used to hate wearing sunscreen, but I wear this every day with no complaints

Light formula, goes on well, no heavy, sticky feeling - 10-09-2018 by

If you're after a light SPF50 that goes on easily, doesn't sit on the skin and can be worn under make up/bb creme, then look no further. It goes on quickly and without mess, doesn't have a strong scent and feels moisturising, but not heavy on the skin. This is my go to - I am really happy with it. Thank you to one of the ladies on the chat for recommending x

All time favourite - 04-09-2018 by

Great for sensitive skin and sinks into skin really quickly. I hate the feeling of sunscreen on my skin and this just feels like an extra layer of moisturiser.

Cosmetically elegant. - 03-09-2018 by

The perfect year round sunscreen. I wear this everyday and it layers perfectly under makeup and over skincare. It is a very thin runny consistency and It feels so light yet works so effectively. There is no irritation and no sunscreen smell. Remember to shake before use and it will require a double cleanse to remove fully.

A++ - 29-08-2018 by

I originally bought the Anthelios 'Dry Touch' cream, thinking that was designed for the face and that the "Ultra Light" was meant to be a body sunscreen. I was wrong! In retrospect, I find the cream 'Dry Touch' version to be a little thick and difficult to apply, whereas this is much more fluid and more easily absorbed. I much prefer this for use on the face, whether under makeup or on its own.

Beautiful under make up and completely non-greasy - 27-08-2018 by

I love this sunscreen- it’s light and absorbs almost instantly. Non whitening and make up sits well over it. Even my hubby uses it. I’ll definitely repurchase.

Sinks in really quickly - 21-08-2018 by

At first I thought this sunscreen was going to be heavy, but it sinks right in and leaves no greasy residue at all.
Love this for when I'll be out in the sun for a while - make up goes on well afterwards too.

My boyfriend steals this off me! - 13-08-2018 by

This product has changed my sun care regime. Firstly, the consistency is so good: Matte and light. Secondly, the bottle is small so can always be with you. Thirdly, it last for ever! I apply several times daily throughout the summer and only need 2 bottles to get me through the hot months-- that is unless my boyfriend steals it from me! It's so good it's even converted him-- not just to the product, but to actually applying sunscreen when he goes out or for a surf. Perfection!

I love this suncream. - 13-08-2018 by

I choosed this suncream for my sensitive skin. This product was very suit on my skin,Very light, non-greasy texture at all.

Amazing - 07-08-2018 by

So light and non greasy! Sunscreen is a must have for everyone and I highly recommend this one!

Fantastique! - 18-07-2018 by

I have been using this product every day for at least 2 years now and will continue using it! I have combination skin - dry with psoriasis in places and oily in others and this product works well over my whole face. It feels light going on, more like a moisturiser than a sunscreen but I know it’s effective. The bottle is small enough to keep on hand for reapplication when necessary.

Non greasy easy to wear all day - 13-07-2018 by

I love this and it is the first sunscreen that hasn't annoyed me in some way. Normally they're to greasy, irritating or smelly. This is none of these things and it works a treat to prevent sunburn.

I am using Vit A and Glycolic so sunscreen is a must so happy I was recommended this by the Adore team. Thank u.

Best sunscreen - 11-07-2018 by

Prior to discovering this product, I would hate putting sunscreen on my face and would only it occasionally. However this product is so LIGHT i use it everyday underneath a mineral foundation. It doesn't make my skin oily or cause breakouts. With a high SPF and broad spectrum coverage it is a very high quality sunscreen too.

Love it! - 10-07-2018 by

Recommended to me by an Adore Beauty product advisor via the chat feature. I was looking for a very light sunscreen to wear daily since I’ve started using a serum with retinol. This is exactly what I was after! Very lightweight, serum-like texture that absorbs quickly and is non-greasy so goes well under day cream and makeup. Bottle is pretty small but a little goes a long way.

Lightweight and gentle on the skin - 09-07-2018 by

Not the best I have used but I would definitely recommend it. It is lightweight and not too oily on the skin. It doesn't sting my skin like other chemical sunscreen. I switch to physical sunscreen now so I did not repurchase it. For someone who don't mind using chemical sunscreen, I recommend this one.

The only SPF you need - 08-07-2018 by

This is my holy grail SPF. It is a thin consistency, absorbs quickly and makeup lays beautifully on top of it. A must-have in the Aussie summer!

Absolute perfection!!! - 30-06-2018 by

I used to use the mecca facial sunscreen however after using this I am never going back!! The consistency is super thin and blends in so easily and the product is unscented making it perfect for sensitive skin! It has high sun protection with UVA and UVB protection so you can rest assured your skin is protected. A must have even for those who do not wear makeup!

Sticking with this forever - 27-06-2018 by

The formulation of this serum sunblock is heavenly. It almost feels like a treatment on the face. An absolute pleasure to use and very effective. Love it.

Perfect for Sensitive Skin - 25-06-2018 by

I have a history of eczema so my skin is extremely sensitive. Throughout my childhood I use to find that wearing sunscreen (those that are labelled for sensitive skin) tend to cause my skin to flare up. At first I thought it was due to excess sun exposure but after switching over to this sunscreen my skin had never been better. No more flare ups and itching, the watery texture of the product also allows for good absorption into the skin and regulation of oil. Although this is targeted for more oily and acne prone skin, it did not dry up my skin too much even though my skin is on the dry and sensitive side so I highly highly recommend. P.s they also have a version for dry skin too;))

SO LIGHT! - 22-06-2018 by

I bought this after being recommended by a chemist, due to its lightweightedness. I was sick of the greasy, thick, whitecast my neutrogena sunscreen left and in thick aussie humidity with a sweat prone face (I sweat when im just sitting, I sweat EASILY) I neeeeded a light sunscreen. I bought this and I wont ever stop using it! I would recommend strongly, it's a liquidy cream...not a thick paste like many spf50 sunscreens are

High Sun Protection and so Lightweight! - 21-06-2018 by

I love this sunscreen. I had trouble wearing sunscreen daily as they all felt so heavy and uncomfortable on my skin. This one is a nice change.
It comes in a tiny square shaped bottle with a thin nozzle which makes dispensing so easy.
The formula is quite a liquidy fluid and smells much like any other sunscreen.
This sunscreen is amazing under makeup! It goes on so light you dont even notice its there and makeup applies so well over this!
Best of all it has such high spf protection.
I buy this whenever I see it on sale.

Pleasantly Surprised - 19-06-2018 by

I hate wearing sunscreen on my face - it feels thick, horrible and I always end up with zits the next day. I was trying to find a nice face sunscreen for a holiday to Bali and gave this one a go. I was so surprised with how much I liked it, how gentle it was on my skin, and how non-reflective my face was! I have dry/sensitive skin, and it has been a nightmare trying to find a facial sunscreen product that I like. I LOVE this sunscreen; so light, non-greasy and I didn't get burnt at all. 100% recommend, would repurchase again, officially earned holy grail status in my skincare regime.

Cant go wrong with 50+ - 18-06-2018 by

50+ sunscreen that absorbs easily and gives great protection. Simple choice when compared to lower spf rated products!

Hoorah! - 14-06-2018 by

I am so, so happy that this is finally available in Australia. We keep getting told by skincare and medical professionals to wear sunscreen everyday - but there is no way on earth you can wear thick, greasy Australian sunscreen on your face everyday without a whole host of skin problems. FINALLY we are starting to get European-style SPFs available in Australia, which means that you can wear it on your face (or under makeup) without feeling like you've got an inch of gunk smothering your pores. I LOVE this stuff!

My go to sunscreen - 13-06-2018 by

This is one of my absolute favourite sunscreens. It's one of the only ones I ever use on my face especially with make up.

This sunscreen is so lightweight that I can apply my make up as usual over the top of it. My makeup still sits perfectly over this sunscreen without looking heavy or oily.

I love the strength of this sunscreen and knowing I'm keeping my skin well protected. This sunscreen is very lightweight and absorbs very well and easily.

HG Sunscreen - 04-06-2018 by

I've been using this for everyday for years. HG sunscreen so important especially with Australian sun. My dermatologist and cosmeceuticals consultant both agree that I cant do better than this and its cheap

HOLY GRAIL - 25-05-2018 by

This has a huge cult following for a reason. I have dry, sensitive skin and this is the only sunscreen I've found that ticks all the boxes. It does NOT break me out, which was the most important to me. Secondly, it doesn't clog my pores or leaves a white cast - which is a huge bonus too. Consistency is quite runny and light. I highly, highly recommend it and don't see myself using anything else. It's the perfect sunscreen!

Only sunscreen I would use on my face - 19-05-2018 by

My friend recommended this sunscreen to me as I tend to get a rash from from other one I have tried. This is amazing. Does not irritate my skin at all. Highly recommend

A wonderful face suncreen - 17-05-2018 by

I have fair sensitive/rosacea prone skin and find it very difficult to find a sunscreen that doesn't irritate my skin or cause breakouts. This does neither. It has a lovely thin consistency and wears beautifully under makeup. I have finally found a sunscreen I will continue to purchase. Love it

Best under sunscreen for under make up! - 08-05-2018 by

I absolutely love this sun screen, it doesnt leave a white cast or an overly-oily residue, it settles into the skin nicely and I find a little bit goes a long way. I use light reactive skin care products and I feel confident that this sunscreen is giving me great protection from sun exposure! Will definitely purchase again!
Its important to note that the product/bottle may be smaller than anticipated, I had to ask for the products weight as its not listed anywhere.

Holy grail facial sunscreen - 11-04-2018 by

If you're a "wear sunscreen everyday" kind of person you need this. It is the best sunscreen I have found for use under makeup and a little goes a very long way. It's also very effective - I'm as pale as they come and haven't had any issues with getting burnt whilst wearing this.

It is a thin, almost water-like consistency which makes it easy to apply. I wouldn't say that it soaks into the skin completely but it's certainly not greasy. It also doesn't leave a white cast like some facial sunscreens I have tried.

If I ever forget to apply before makeup, you can even rub this between your hands and pat it on over your foundation and no one would ever know. Totally foolproof!

My absolute favourite sunscreen! - 03-04-2018 by

I use BHA almost daily so sunscreen is super important. I absolutely love this sunscreen! Not only is it 50+ but it's super lightweight and has no strong sunscreen smell. It leaves absolutely no white cast - which isn't surprising as the fluid itself it an off-white, cream-ish kind of colour colour. I love that I can use it on its own and my skin looks radiant, natural and glowing as well as being able to use it as part of my daily makeup routine where I can put primer and foundation on top with no issues. Pricey but well worth it! I'm onto my 4th bottle & can't leave the house without putting some on.

Love it! - 03-04-2018 by

This is he first sunscreen I’ve tried that I don’t hate. Not only does it protect my extremely sun-sensitive skin (I’m very pale and after being a housebound agoraphobe for the better part of the last 7 years, my skin has a hard time dealing with the sun, I burn remarkably easily) but I love how it feels.

It’s quite runny, but it applies smoothly and soaks in well and relatively quickly. It doesn’t leave an obnoxious greasy shine for my skin, though it does leave a slight glowy sheen when in certain light; for the most part is absorbs and dries without making me look caked in sunscreen. Maybe a semi-matte finish, I would say. Feels smooth on my face but not greasy.

I love that it doesn’t *feel* like I have sunscreen on. Once it absorbs I don’t notice it.

It hasn’t broken me out either, though I’m not overly prone to acne. I have dehydrated combo skin.

I did buy the XL Ultra Light spray after purchasing this, as it’s far more product for only slightly more money, but it leaves more of a shine than this one. This goes on my face and the spray goes on my neck and ears so I won’t go through a $30 bottle every couple weeks because that feels a bit insane!

Overall I loooooooove this sunscreen and would definitely recommend it to others with very sun-sensitive skin who want adequate protection without feeling greasy.

My saviour - 29-03-2018 by

I recently went to thailsnd and I forgot my sunscreen (I have very sensitive skin and a lot of sunscreens break me out). I went into every shop in Thailand and I couldn’t find any sunscreeend that I knew wouldn’t set off my skin. Luckily one of my friends on the trip had this sunscreen and I tried it and I loved it. The moment I got home to Australia I bought my own bottle. If you have sensitive skin then this is the sunscreen for you, also doesn’t go on ghostly white or overly oily. Love it!!!

Great facial sunscreen - 22-03-2018 by

Lightweight and works under makeup. I use this every day.

Great but Irritates eyes - 20-03-2018 by

I really wanted to love this product, and do, except that it is terribly irritating if it gets in your eyes. It also separates easily and needs to be shaken before use (which I always forget to do and end up with oil everywhere). Other than that, I love the finish and the packaging is very handy, no offensive scent, no noticeable tint (but my skin is very pale).

Best sunscreen - 13-03-2018 by

This is definitely the best facial sunscreen that I've tried. It's really lightweight, doesn't leave a sheen on my face and isn't oily. It doesn't discolour my skin either (ie lighten it). It works really well as a primer too.

Best Sunscreen For Sensitive Skin - 19-02-2018 by

I have hormonal acne, a small amount of Rosacea on my cheeks, and very sensitive skin. This sunscreen is the only one that doesn’t sting or burn my skin. My dermatologist recommended this brand and I am glad she did! i have a sensitivity to the sun due to Chronic Fatigue and this product enables me to cope. Brilliant.

AMAZING - 28-01-2018 by

I absolutely love this sunscreen. The first one I come across in a long time where it is lightweight and almost mattifying to the skin. This is your summer must-have! I took it with me everywhere I went on holiday this year and my face has been clear from sun damage.

Excellent but very small - 08-01-2018 by

This is a fantastic sunscreen without upsetting my sensitive, acne prone skin. The only down side is it is very expensive when u consider the small amount u get for the price. Great size for travelling though.

Light sunscreen - 21-12-2017 by

This sunscreen is wonderful. Really light and not oily at all. I have fair skin and this is the perfect sunscreen for me. Protects my skin without causing oiliness and break outs.

Very light sunscreen. - 19-12-2017 by

I have a normal, oily skin. Oily on t-zone.
I use this product everyday. It’s so light, absorb to skin, no fragrance, and doesn’t break me out. The texture is very liquidy. It does have a little bit of shine, but all in all it’s worth a buy.
Will definitely purchase again.

Light, long-lasting and does the job - 15-11-2017 by

I keep coming back to this because it works under my makeup (I'm a full-coverage gal, with multiple products layered over the top of this) and has incredible staying power. It's light enough for all climates; cold, humid, dry - you name it.

Tends to leave me looking oily - 30-10-2017 by

I got a trial tube of the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light SPF50+, and while it certainly is very light and I love the fact that its SPF50+, you can sort of tell that it has such a high SPF.

I tend to get an exceptionally oily T-zone in hot weather and I found this product tended to just leave my forehead and nose super shiny and more so as the day went on.

That being said for such a high SPF they've done an amazing job because it's actually much LESS oily than you're average sunscreen product of equal sun protection value. So if you're someone with dry skin this would be perfect. Its just not the right product for my skin

Perfect sunscreen but tiny bottle! - 25-10-2017 by

This sunscreen is super lightweight and non-greasy. It's perfect underneath makeup too, not ruining it at all. Smell is pleasant, though the bottle is very small unfortunately - wish it came in a bigger size so it wasn't as expensive.

Light weight but still sticky - 16-10-2017 by

It is quite light weight but I can still feel the stickiness when I apply it. It wears well under makeup though. I will keep repurchasing it if I can't find a better alternative.

Brilliant non-greasy sunscreen - 15-09-2017 by

This is a fantastic everyday sunscreen. It layers beautifully over moisturizer and under makeup and doesn't leave my combination skin greasy or shiny. It comes in a tiny bottle, but it is a very thin consistency and a little goes a long way. I was concerned that the high alcohol content would dry out my skin, but I've had no problems.

The best sunscreen for oily skin - 07-09-2017 by

I love it. Non greasy, lightweight. High protection. The best sunscreen for me. I've finally found my go to sunscreen.

Light, non-greasy great for oily & sensitive skin/rosacea - 08-01-2017 by

I absolutely love this sunscreen for my face! My skin type is: fair, sensitive, rosacea, combination with oily t-zone. I have tried numerous sunscreens before but they were too shiny, left white marks or I ended up with breakouts, redness or rash after prolongued use. This sunscreen however:
- is non-greasy/ no sticky, oily residue or white residue
- light and easy to apply (melts on your skin)
-skin feels smooth after application
- effective sun protection for sun sensitive skin (if applied 2-3hrly)
- does not irritate sensitive skin even with whole day wear (no rash, no itchyness or stinging feeling)
-does not flare up rosacea
- you can apply make-up on top with ease
- no bad smells

I cannot think of any cons appart from price, but it is definately worth the money!

lightweight - 11-11-2016 by

beautiful moisturising sunscreen that goes on extremely well and smells gorgeous. However after a day of gardening i did still get burnt, however i only applied in the morning and didnt reapply again as i maybe should have. Product was only used on my face. Great product but seems more luxurious than actually sun protective!

Fantastic product - 28-09-2015 by

I use this as it is the best UV protection available. It goes on nicely and doesn't have a 'ghosting' effect. Doesn't make me break out. Good under makeup or alone. Definitely will repurchase.

Great UVA/UVB High SPF Protection, Perfect For Oily Skin - 18-03-2014 by

So glad La Roche Posay is finally available in Australia. Their sunscreens are highly recommended! This sunscreen has a high SPF of 50+ with both UVA/UVB protection. It's very fluid, milky consistency so you need to shake the bottle before using it. It is not greasy. Contains no fragrance. Water resistant.

I have oily skin and I found this sunscreen to be great. It leaves me feeling slightly less oily, and feels so light weight on the skin. It leaves a silky finish though. It does contain alcohol in it and may dry out the skin slightly, but make sure you wear a moisturiser and let it absorb before applying the sunscreen. I did notice it cling onto a few dry patches.

This sunscreen can be applied under makeup and looks fine. No problems at all. I would compare this sunscreen to a lot of Shiseido or other Japanese sunscreens which are absolutely amazing but very expensive and harder to get. I would definitely repurchase this because its easier to access, and works just as good.

A downside to this product, is that it may leave a slight white cast, especially if you're medium to dark skin tone it would be very noticeable. I have a light medium skin tone, but it doesn't bother me, especially if I'm wearing makeup over it.

Just a note, I find these sunscreens need to be removed with an oil or balm type cleanser, otherwise it would be difficult to remove with other types of cleansers.
