I bought this product a couple of weeks ago and it is soooo amazing! Makes my feel skin feel instantly and constantly hydrated all day long! Has a very good coverage and pigment and completely evens out my skin colour, something that I find a lot of other bb creams struggle to do. Could not be happier.

Customer Reviews

Anthelios XL SPF 50+ BB Comfort Cream is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good SPF but a little too dark: This is a very comfortable, non greasy formula & it's SPF50 which is great because it really does help to protect your skin from sun exposure. It comes in a tube but it has a pump which makes the product easier to get out & it's less messy too. My only issue with it is that it is too dark for me. You could probably mix it in with another foundation to custom match if you wanted to but I feel like that takes away the purpose of using it in the first place if you just want a lighter coverage. All in all I would recommend it but just be aware that if you have fair skin this will probably be too dark for you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tinted Moisturiser with Fantastic Sun Protection I am a huge fan of La Roche Posay. I love this BB Cream! I am very fair and burn easily, the Factor 50 is incredible. It's so good to have a 'suncream' that also works as a low coverage foundation so that make up can still be easily applied on sunny days. It is also very water resistant, excellent for holidays. Lastly it offers good coverage without the addition of foundation, its a lovely consistency - very moisturising and has caused no break outs or reactions to my very sensitive skin. Would highly recommend to anyone struggling to find protective summer products and are not adverse to achieving a healthy soft glow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic combination product! This product is fantastic. It keeps my normal-dry skin moisturised and protected from the sun. The product is easily applied and quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Another unique bonus of this product is that it is tinted, so you won't have to worry about applying another products onto your skin increasing the likelihood of blocking your pores. Although it is on the pricier end of the scale, it is a combination product, so saves you money, storage space and time. Can't recommend this enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice I am not a huge make up wearer so this comes in really handy to wear on a daily basis, it is nice and light texture. I am very fair skinned so this shade was a bit dark for my skin but not so dark that it was obviously obvious and once I'd rubbed it on, it wasn't that noticeable. I am happy to use this in place of foundation and I think it will come in really handy when I go on holiday abroad to a hot country as my skin will be slightly darker and it has an SPF of 50 which is why I need, so covers my flaws and keeps me protected. Overall happy with this product for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps you protected! I have just taken this product on holiday with me to Spain and it has kept me protected in the sun all holiday! It's a brilliant product and kept my skin moisturised and looking bright. It isn't greasy and absorbs well too. Lovely glowing tint, would definitely recommend :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for light coverage/natural finish! I've always been quite sceptical when it comes to BB creams as I have dry pale skin and uneven skin tone, so trying to find a match is a task in itself! I applied this BB cream with my fingers at first but it gave a patchy look, so I then used a damp beauty blender and it went on fab! It's ideal for me to use while I'm on holiday instead of a heavy foundation or even if I'm running some errands and don't want to go make up free :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tinted Suncream I noticed other people have left reviews saying they cannot fault the SPF element of this cream and it does as promised protecting their skin from sun exposure. However, I would have to say I disagree. I have used this product daily, and at the end of each day and following morning I have noticed that I have caught the sun on my most susceptible areas (nose bridge, cheeks, top of forehead), while using this product. So the next day I have tried applying more product and also reapplying throughout the day to see if this would make a difference. But I found it did not and I still caught the sun. It is supposed to be a high spf 50 cream so I did not expect this. Although, it obviously does give some protection as I wouldn't say I am burnt but had just 'caught the sun'. I would liken the effects more to a cream offering factor 30 SPF. The cream has a light texture, however it is not as easy to blend on the skin as I expected. Although this is a product made for dry skin I don't feel like its moisturising enough as a stand alone cream. Seems like it would work better after you had already applied normal moisturiser. The shade of this cream was perfect for my skin. Would probably say I have a fair-medium skin tone and it is a perfect match. It did leave my skin looking naturally glowing. Have continued to use this cream for the BB cream element, however am also using a different sun cream on my face for additional sun protection that I don't feel I am getting from this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tinted part of the cream not very good I was really disappointed with this product. I'm already aware of how this brand has amazing sun cream so I was really excited to test out this tinted BB cream. I was expecting great results as well as good sun protection. From my use it was obvious that the sun care part was really well done but the tinted BB part of it did not live up to the expectations. It was very hard to blend into my face and it did not become my skin colour. It was extremely white and creamy, which is what you expect when you put too much sun cream on. This product is just another sun cream to me. It may have been that because of my skin colour and my darker tone that maybe it didn't work, and could work on much fairer and lighter skin tones. But overall I would definitely not recommend this product.
