La Roche-Posay Suncare Expertise

Forming the majority of UV rays and present all year round, long UVA penetrate to the very heart of the dermic causing irreversible skin damage. For the first time La Roche-Posay incorporates BAICALIN antioxidant, and demonstrates its biological efficacy against the effects of UV (including long UVA) for extra protection.


Anthelios efficacy has been demonstrated via clinical studies carried out in-vivo on subjects suffering from sun intolerances, particularly those caused by UVA rays. Anthelios products all have a high PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) factor, offering one of the best protections against UVA offered by any brand in the world. The efficacy has been proven by a file of 16 clinical studies carried out by world-renowned expert dermatologists. The brand was also the first laboratory to use Mexoryl XL and Mexoryl SX and the first to use photostable UVA filters in its sun protection.

9/10 of dermatologists would recommend Anthelios*


The minimalist formula contains the best of our creations – designed for sensitive skin and all of its needs. Tested and re-tested for its efficacy and mildness on sensitive skin. It is also hypoallergenic.

This is a cosmetic product. For medical conditions seek advice from your GP

How To

Learn how to use

Apply just before exposure. Re-apply frequently and generously to maintain protection, especially after swimming, perspiring or towelling


Over-exposure to the sun is dangerous. Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight. Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product because it does not provide you 100% protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 in 1 This is great as a bb and spf in one also great for no makeup days

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Finish and keeps skin moisturised. I bought this as I am currently in the process of preparing for a skin peel and have been prescribed an intense retinol and AHA routine. My skin has been dry and flaking profusely while my skin gets used to the treatment and foundation has become too heavy for my skin and dries my skin out more adding to the flakiness. I have acne scarring and pigmentation issues and was looking for a tinted moisturiser that would prevent my skin from drying while I’m at work. I ordered the product before reading reviews - so knew to expect the tint to be darker in shade (I have fair skin with a yellowish tone) and the consistency of the cream to be on the thick side. Bearing these points in mind I thought I’d give it a go and experiment. Before applying the moisturiser, I apply a thick layer of my usual facial moisturiser (I’m prescribed an SPF 50 cream) and spread it evenly around my full face NOT rubbing completely into the skin. Then I use one pump of the tinted moisturiser - rub it into the fingertips of both hands and gently pat around the whole face until full face has been covered then I work both moisturisers into the skin together. I find that quick upward sweeping strokes with fingertips works well and provides an even application - as noted on previous reviews the product tends to dry quickly. I find that the thick base of normal moisturiser before applying the tinted SPF 50 moisturiser evens out the tone and the shade adapts easier to my skin tone. It also leaves a really lovely sheen on the skin - my skin looks to have been highlighted on my cheekbones etc. My skin now stays moisturised all day and it offers decent coverage of my pigmentation issues. I have had to use a spot of concealer on bad days however it isn’t obvious and blends in with the moisturiser just fine. I would recommend this product and will continue to buy in future. You may need to experiment with the application depending on your skin type but it has done wonders for my skin tone already and I have never left the house without applying a full layer of foundation before using this product - now I can do that the the finish looks more natural and I now have a healthy glow :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good block and colour Brought about a month ago. Really good colour, I have pale olive skin on the yellow side. This is a good colour, ever so slightly paler then my foundation which is EL ivory beigh. Really pleased with it as can touch up during the day without a big make up drama as I don't wear much but need coverage to even tone now I'm bit older. I originally brought the untainted one which is good but but prefer tinted one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really liked this I was surprised to like this so much. I have pale to medium skin but, despite being tinted, it blended well leaving a healthy glow. I have been able to do without foundation, which I would never do, with just a touch of blusher. It seems to improve the look the of skin too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't need foundation anymore I have oily skin texture and was on the look out for a sun screen that wasn't going to add * even more * shine to my face. Found a review by a dermatologist on Youtube that recommended this one. I had no idea that this was tinted when I picked it up and now I no longer feel the need for foundation (which I only really use to achieve an even skin tone from hyper-pigmentation) which has done even more favours for my skin because my pores aren't being clogged up from make-up. I use this religiously every day now, went on this site to pick another one up and thought I'd leave a review. Keep in mind it's dry touch so it will set very quickly, with one swoop usually, so careful you don't accidentally rub some off your face when applying more / blending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for darker skin/medium tan tones Bought the tinted version by accident. I'm so glad I did. I am British Asian with a tan complexion and suffer with hyperpigmentation and oily skin. Only my second day wearing this, and the orange colour (although scary to see when first pumped out of the bottle) quickly adapted to my brown skin and left a fantastic natural shade meaning I didn't have to wear foundation. I simply used concealer on top to hide pigmentation. its too soon to see how many hours my face will remain oil free for but, but its definitely a matt finish, dries in seconds and a great primer under make up - this is up there as one of the best priced quality sunscreen. Compared to my Murad sunscreen which is 5 times the price but an excellent product. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the oil slick stays at bay. Will recommend to everyone, and excited to wear this abroad, knowing that my face has coverage and protection

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really really good I have been trying to find a good high sunscreen for my face that’s non comedogenic and non greasy. This is great. I actually mix it with a tiny bit of my normal foundation. It is a little hard to run on your face since it is anti shine and greasy. But when it’s on... it looks great and seems to extend the wear of my foundation by hours. My face isn’t shiny and it seems to act as a really good primer. Really really love this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product What a discovery! A highly protective tinted suncream I can wear on my face that's not shiny and provides good coverage like a foundation. What's more, it doesn't aggravate my sensitive skin.
