Exceptionally high broad-spectrum protection sunscreen for oily blemish-prone skin


Exceptionally high protection facial sunscreen in a dry-touch gel for oily, blemish-prone skin.


This sunscreen is specifically formulated for the face and is suitable for oily skin that is prone to sensitivity, sun-intolerance or prickly-heat. This dry-touch texture melts into the skin, leaving no white marks. It immediately mattifies and protects the skin. Very water resistant.

  • A dry touch gel sunscreen for oily, sun sensitive skin
  • Exceptionally high broad, photostable UVA/UVB/Infrared protection
  • Dry-touch texture controls shine and helps prevent break outs


Exceptionally high, broad photostable UVA/UVB/Infrared protection. Optimal SPF 50+ protection reinforced against UVA rays (stricter than the European recommendation) thanks to patented filtering system Mexoplex® combined with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water. Enriched with Airlicium, a cutting-edge ingredient used by NASA, that forms a supple and resistant film over the skin and smoothes its surface whilst letting it breathe. Airlicium absorbs 3 times its weight in oil, keeping the skin matte and unified with a velvet finish.

The minimalist formula contains no preservatives, no parabens, no colourants, no fragrance and no lanolin. It is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (won't block pores).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this product! I have sensitive, spot-prone combination skin (with a very oily t-zone) and am very sensitive to the sun. Yesterday I ran a half marathon in 26 degree heat. I was boiling hot, sweating a lot and was in direct sun for a total of about 5 hours (running for nearly 3). There was not a bit of redness or sunburn, absolutely no congested skin or pores and unbelievably absolutely no shine. I am very picky about my skin care and I think this is brilliant value if you have slightly tricky skin. It needs a good rubbing in otherwise you might find it looks a little bit chalky but as long as you blend there are no problems with this. Brilliant product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin I'm pleasantly surprised with this. I was skeptical about buying this because of several bad reviews I read. Mostly about it drying to quickly and people not having enough time to spread it causing the appearance white marks. I can only imagine this happened because they applied too much too soon. I apply small amounts at a time and have no problem with spreading it before it dries. I even use it on my eye contours since it doesn't give me millia like sunscreen lotions normally do. The main plus with this though is how great it is for people who's faces always end up being a greasy mess half hour after applying sunscreen to their face. This is the first sunscreen where that hasn't happened to me. If your skin requires hydration though I would suggest using moisturiser underneath since this product really doesn't moisturise one bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff This is a really nice product. I wear suncream every day year round and this product is really excellent. I use about 1/4 of a teaspoon to cover my face and neck. I have oily skin and this does not make me any oiler than normal unlike the La Roche-Posay ANTHELIOS FACE COMFORT CREAM TINTED SPF50+ which did tend to make me a bit greasy but is a good alternative if you have drier skin and it has a bit of a tint so if wanted to you could do without foundation. My morning routine is to wash my face, apply vit c serum and wait 10 minutes, apply this suncream and wait 10 minutes and then apply a primer on top before applying my make up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it says It applies easily and has a non greasy matt finish. It also doesnt leave your face with a ghostly white film. I would definately buy this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultra matte but cakes when other products applied This has to be the mattest facial sun cream I have tried. It has a lotion texture that absorbs instantly into my skin leaving absolutely no greasy feel or shine whatsoever, in fact its so mattifying that I need to use a separate moisturise underneath otherwise my face is far too dry and it goes a bit patchy despite my oily skin. Once applied it doesn't budge and protects all day as well as giving me a lasting almost powdery matt finish. It doesn't leave a white cast but if I have any dry patches or I don't moisturise beforehand it does cling to them a bit which causes a bit of cakey whiteness. The only negative I have is that when I try to apply foundation or BB cream over the top it cakes badly and balls up so its not suitable to use underneath foundation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leave a white paste on your face (maybe because im black) I dont know if its because im black (albeit a bit light skin toned) but when i put it on my face it makes me look like i've put on some kind of white paste on my face and it just stays there, it doesn't go away no matter how much i rub it in. Its a shame because it does make my face matte but i can't just wear it alone which is what i bought it for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my face shine-free! Before using this sunscreen, all others I tried would end up with me in tons of spots. I was at wits end, as I definitely want to protect my face from the su daily, but didn't want to deal with the shine & acne! This product was the answer - it glides on really well (I use very small amounts at a time and rub it in until there are not white marks, so takes a little longer than your normal face cream), but in the end I have a shine-free face all day! I apply a moisturiser, wait 10 minutes, apply this sunscreen, wait 10-15 minutes and then carry on doing my make-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I've used As someone who burns in the dark, I've always needed to use a high factor cream but often found they left me looking even whiter and was unable to wear normal make up. The usual creams also felt heavy and as if they weren't being absorbed. This cream is the opposite! It ffeels as if it absorbs properly, it doesn't leave you looking white and you can wear your usual make up over it if you wish. It also offers great sun protection, have spent three days in 40+ temperatures I didn't burn once (obviously in conjunction with the usual sun sense - hats, shade, reapplication, etc) This is the best sun cream I've come across and well worth the price. In my experience a tube will last for approximately two whole body applications.
