Moisturising for a sunscreen but leaves a bit of a white cast
GoodThis is a very moisturising sunscreen cream. Love the texture of it
okaykind of felt a bit greasy which I didn't like
Really great SPF cream!I didn't realise how much I liked this cream until I picked it up again after a month or two. It's gentle and moisturising on the skin and doesn't take a minute to sink in before makeup application like other SPFs (very important when I've slept in before work and in a rush)!
best sunscreenthis is by far one of the best sunscreens I've ever tried, I had a sample of this and plan on purchasing the full size very soon
Amazing and effectiveThe holy grail of face sunscreens and a can't live without product! Normally I find specific facial sunscreens heavy and messy underneath makeup, but this product is amazing. It applies smoothly and literally melts into your skin without leaving any stickiness or muddiness that typically congeals with any product applied over the top. You can apply heavy foundation over it perfectly and you don't even know the sunscreen is underneath. Epic!
GreatThis sunscreen melts into my skin and makes it moisturised.
Fave SPFI've been using this for close to a year now and I absolutely LOVE it! It melts into the skin (as the name suggests) and isn't thick and sticky as some SPF's tend to be.
GreatA very good sunscreen for my dry patchy skin. Really protects it and makeup glides easily on top
Nice but breaks me outI really like the texture of this sunscreen and the way that it sits under make up. It sinks in nicely and is not irritating at all. Unfortunately it broke me out after a few uses. I think it’s definitely better suited to dry skin as it can be a little on the greasy side.
My holy grail facial sunscreenI have a love-hate relationship with facial sunscreens. I'm very fair and have super sensitive skin, and found that everything I tried was either too heavy, too drying, broke me out or gave me an allergic reaction. Not to mention it's hard to find an SPF50 product (most of the ones I can use are only SPF30). This product, however, does none of that. It goes on easily, feels like a moisturiser and sinks in beautifully. It also makes a great makeup base. It's not really suited to oily skin, but if you're slightly dry like me your skin will drink this up.
One of the bestI burn really easily so I'm always trying out different sunscreens. I love this one & prefer it over the anthelios products by this brand. Perfect under makeup, soaks in well, easy to apply ! Very hydrating so can use in place of moisturiser. The only issue is the size ! 30ml is not big enough for everyday use !
Good for sensitive skinI own this one and the BB version(shade#2). They both are hybrid suncreen type which work well for sun protection but still safe and gentle to skin. I feel like the consistency of this cream is a bit different from the BB cream. It's more slippery - more like gel cream and easier to blend. It also gives me some cooling sensation(from Alcohol) which doesn't bother me much. However, In summer I feel like it makes my face looks shinier than usual and also emphasises my large pores(I have combination skin). So I think this one might be more suitable for dry skin people since they can use all year round.
Moisturising for a sunscreen but leaves a bit of a white castThis is like a moisturiser and sunscreen in one! This really calms the skin especially when I’m going through a breakout and keeps it moisturised, however, it does make my skin look a little lighter.
Good formulaThis sunscreen is so moisturising and has great protection. No white cast and non-greasy too so really recommend it
ProtectionI like the texture of this so much that I wear sunscreen every day now. It melts right into my skin and helps with dryness. Fantastic uv protection
Great sunscreen for sensitive skin sisters!This sunscreen is great! It doesn’t leave a white cast or funny feeling on my skin. It hasn’t exacerbated my perioral dermatitis which most do. I recommend to my sensitive skin sisters.
Not badOnly been using it for 2 weeks, so far so good. Doesn't leave my face feeling oily.
Almost PerfectThis product falls just short of 'holy grail' for me. It ticks most boxes— it's not tacky, it does 'melt in' as advertised, and almost causes a blur effect on my skin. That being said, it still has a mild white cast and makes my foundation look a shade or two lighter than the rest of my skin when I wear this sunscreen under makeup. It also makes my face and neck look texturally different to the rest of me. That being said, this has been the best sunscreen I've ever used, and has prevented my skin from sun bleaching and freckles, and I would recommend this for anyone with dry skin, whether they tan or burn (I tan everywhere but my face, where I get burns).
Great for oily skinI have extremely oily skin and this definitely controls the oily. I like to apply it under makeup as a base.
Lightweight under makeupI love how lightweight and non greasy this product is. Makeup glides over it and you know you are doing good things for your skin by always wearing sunscreen
Amazing!This sunscreen has been great! I purchased this based on a recommendation in the adore beauty blog and haven’t been disappointed! I only need to use a tiny amount and it goes on great underneath my make up. It doesn’t feel oily or tacky. I’m really happy with it!
GreatThis is what I wear daily and I love it more than any other bb cream I've tried! Doesn't fade, seperate or disappear from my skin!
So light weight50+ pprotecrion amaizng light weight doesn’t feel heavy or stay on top of the skin like most sunscreens this one just melts in the skin and is amaing
Best sunscreen out therei love how this sunscreen. it is not too oily. it looks good under my makeup as well
The best face suncream I've ever foundFor years I've been trying to find a suncream for my acne prone oily skin that looks good alone or under makeup. Since finding it this is the only suncream I've continuously repurchased. Its spf 50 so i know I'm being well protected and it truly does melt into the skin. And that's the difference with this product, it melts in without leaving a white cast or a dry or oily film. My skin simply looks moisturised and healthy. I tend to use this as my moisturiser in summer but do add a light moisturiser underneath in winter. Its gentle and doesn't cause me to break out or irritate my eyes. Highly recommend!
Great sunscreen at a great price pointEasily blends into skin, is very moisturizing and does not leave a white residue afterwards. Offers very high sun protection and best if applied twice a day. I make sure I always have one at home and one in my handbag at all times.
Love this sunscreenThis goes on so nicely and doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky or greasy. Makeup goes on easily over the top.
Good sunscreenThis works great under makeup !
Great under makeupI really like using this as it does not irritate my sensitive skin and it works well as a base before my makeup. I did find that it made my face look slightly more shiny than normal, but I do not mind this at all. It also makes my skin feel a lot more soft.
GreatHands down my favourite facial sunscreen. Makes your face look hydrated without looking greasy. It indeed does melt into the skin without making your face feel thick or oily. Also, I've been wearing it every day and it hasn't broken out my skin or clogged my pores!
So light, hard to believe it’s high strength sunscreen!I’ve been looking for a 50spf moisturiser to use in the mornings for a while, and have been encouraging my partner to do so as well. He was reluctant, as he hates the white look some leave. However, this cream is so light, soaks in right away, fine to wear under everyday makeup and once it’s soaked in doesn’t leave skin excessively shiny or white. We just bought our second tube, wish it came in a bigger size!
Feels lightI love this. It’s hard to believe that it is spf50, as it is light on the skin and doesn’t leave a white film like some others. It will be my regular face/ neck sunscreen from now on!
Thumbs upGreat product! Will definitely buy again.I have combination skin, and on summer i get oily on my tzone. This product really works in protecting your skin. I hate heavy feeling and sticky feeling sunscreens on my skin, but this one just melt in and doesn’t feel heavy on the face at all.
Nice productLP 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 came in a bigger tube!
Best sunscreen everThis is great !
I apply it over skin products and it doesn’t pill with my serums. And when worn alone is is smooth and doubles as a moisturiser. Is nice and matte and not oily or smelly. My skin love this!
Wonderful SunscreenI absolutely love this sunscreen. Sinks in easily. Goes well under make-up. Does not irritate my sensitive skin. No fragrance. One of the best sunscreens I have tried - and I have tried many. Will definitely re-purchase this product. Great sunscreen for all year round.
Even better than the Anthelios XLI was hesitant to try this because I love the Anthelios XL, but then I started using azelaic acid and it started pilling! So I thought, fine, I'll give this a try because I was desperate for a sunscreen to match the acid and voila! Also, it's perfect for combination skin like mine as the anthelios one can get quite greasy very quickly.
The Best! Why aren't there bigger size options?This is a fantastic, gentle, scentless sunscreen that goes on just like light moisturiser. It sinks in, and within 30 seconds you can't even feel it on your skin. Great stuff!
I don't understand why the only size available is a tiny little tube? If I could, I'd buy a bucket of it--regardless of price.
Good productPurchased this after reading all the great reviews. I wasn’t disappointed. Product feels nice on the skin, doesn’t leave your face looking white, non greasy and wears well under make up. I did find my face was slightly oily by the end of the day and I never have oily skin. I’ve never purchased or worn a facial sunscreen so may try another when this runs out but overall happy with this sunscreen and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase in the future. Would recommend.
Our favourite sunscreen for sensitive skin and for sportsMy whole family loves the sunscreen for our faces. My skin is super sensitive and I cannot wear many brands. Have been using this one for years. All 5 of my kids have one in their sports bags also. Its fantastic because it sinks right in and doesn't sweat and run off while they play sports like some can. It also doesn't leave any white residue at all and because it sinks in, you can apply make up over the top and not end up with that extra shine. IF you have sensitive skin - this is my pick of the few I can wear
Great for sensitive and UV intolerant skin!I had a lot of trouble finding a face sunscreen that suited my very sensitive skin and worked well enough for my UV intolerance. This sunscreen changed everything, and fit my needs perfectly. Extra bonus, it works well under makeup and doesn’t leave my face shiny on those makeup free days.
The best sunscreen for sensitive skinI have a very sensitive skin. I was very skeptical about this one, but I have used it for a week now and I couldn't be happier. I love that it doesn't have any fragrance. Also that it doesn't leave this white layer on my face, it just melts into it.
Very happy with my purchase!
Used to be my favourite!This used to be my favourite sunscreen and I think I've used at least 6 tubes of it! During 2014-2015 when my skin is really reactive and unstable, I find it not only hides my redness to some extent but also calms my skin. However, they seem to have changed its formula when I repurchased last year. I don't seem to find the "whitening and calming" effect that I used to love :(
By the way, I think it's nourishing but not overly greasy. I think it can also replace the day cream.
GoodThis sunscreen has a very nice texture and does melt into the skin without leaving a greasy layer on top which I really like.
Good :) :)I really like this under make-up as it doesn't feel really heavy. Worth trying :)
Great for sensitive skin (:This is great for sensitive skin and provides great protection from the sun without feeling heavy and greasy like most other sunscreens (:
A great sunscreen !This is so good and doesn't have that greasy feel so many other sunscreens have, it also doesn't leave any strong fragrance after using it, it's great under makeup.
definitely worth trying (:
New favourite sunscreenI have experiemented with many different sunscreen options, but this one is my new favourite, it is fragrance free, has an even coverage and feels light on the skin, and dries silky smooth I have tried la roche-posay's other sunscreens but this one is the best for me so far.
Favourite sunscreen.This is my favourite sunscreen. I have a normal, oily skin. Oily on t-zone. This product is absolutely amazing. No fragrance, melt in you skin very quickly, just what the products say it is and it does. Didn’t break me out and no shine after applying it. A bit pricey though and less product than the other La roche posay sunscreen. Not sure if i will purchase again because of the price. But will definitely purchase the liquid one from same brand, as it does the same thing.
