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

Our Brand

Our Brand
For 30 years, we’ve been working in partnership with dermatologists to bring the most efficacious yet highly tolerated products to those with sensitive skin. Whatever your skin concern and whatever your stage in life, La Roche-Posay has a solution – even for those with the most delicate and reactive of skin.

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.


Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great matte-ishprotection but beware of the colour I bought this as an every day spf that isn't overly greasy. A few points to note - firstly, I would recommend going to test the colour in store as it is particularly warm toned and will only work on a very limited skin tone range (i.e. light-medium/tanned skintones). Secondly, it has a strong floral scent so someting to consider for sensitivity. I generally have to mix it with a non-coloured, traditional spf to make it lighter as well as more easy to blend. It takes some work but does look good once blended. I wish they would bring out more colours as I would happily repurchase a lighter version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product - better than much pricier competitors I too bought this by accident, meaning to purchase the factor 50 facial SPF gel and I am so impressed with this. The colour and coverage is great and it blends in so easily. And most importantly remains matte even when it's really hot out. In just a week this has become a must use product for me and I don't use any other coverage on top of it as it's such a good amount for hot summer days, whilst protecting your skin too. Excellent - I'll be stocking up when it's on offer and won't be returning to the sisley version which is ten times the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this for my upcoming holiday but thought I would try it out before i went away, I love this product, it offers good coverage for the skin (it feels a bit like bare minerals complexion rescue) but with the bonus of spf 50+ - it's not greasy at all and leaves a matte feel to the skin (I have oily skin) it is perfumed so this may put some people off but it's a nice perfume smell which I actually don't mind at all. It's not a full coverage be cream but enough to make the complexion look better than bare skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent daily sunscreen for sun sensitive skin I have used a whole tube of this and after experimenting with sunscreens for years as my skin is photo sensitive (I get small pustules from facial sun exposure - apologies if you are eating :-) can conclude that this is right up there for the price. There are few high block sunscreens that are mattifying for people with T Zone oiliness and sensitivity. (Boots Soltan used to do a facial one but seem to have discontinued it.) This La Roche version is a tad thick so if I'm in the UK, I just squeeze a tiny amount of moisturiser out and mix it well in to loosen it up a bit. If I'm closer to the equator I don't. The French (Avene and Vichy too) are very good at broad spectrum sunscreens that perform well in tests. Sits well under my primer and Bare Minerals powder foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - No White Cast I actually picked this up meaning to get another facial sunscreen, but was pleasantly surprised once I started using it. I have an olive complexion and combination skin (oily T-Zone, random dry patches) and have been looking for a high-quality, non-comedogenic, paraben-free, everyday sunscreen. The anti-shine works a treat and doesn't give me that shininess that other sunscreens can. It also actually makes my foundation look better than usual. The warmth of my fingers melts the product into my skin (because at first it feels like it won't rub into the skin that well) and it has a nice, light scent. It doesn't leave a white cast, thank goodness - however because it has SPF in it, it may have a white cast in flash photos, FYI. I like that this is tinted and according to the product description it has micro pigments that adapt to every skin tone, and it's been great with my olive complexion. I have some blemishes so I do have to put some foundation on top, but the tint in this product is great for providing a base underneath so I don't have to use much more foundation. If you're confident enough, you can wear it without any further make-up. I wish the price point was more affordable, but you are getting a high-quality product. I also use the Dermo-Cleanser and love it so far. Definitely recommend!

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 3 out of 5 by from Great as sunscreen but herendous colour It is a great spf product and it’s easy to apply however the colour is dreadful. I have fair skin with cool undertones and this is just an orange colour on my skin. The reason I bought this was to avoid applying foundation during the summer but I cannot avoid it as leaving it by itself makes me look ridiculous. It’s a shame it doesn’t have a range of shades. I don’t think I’ll buy this again

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
