I've been looking for a dedicated sunscreen wear everyday with makeup. Finally after experimenting with many products this sunscreen gives me a great SPF with full coverage, without a heavy feel. It's great under my normal foundation and absorbs well. No white cast off and my skin is protected from both UVA and B. Very happy my makeup no longer slips off and I'm no longer shiny an hour after I apply it.


Optimal SPF 30 protection reinforced against UVA rays thanks to a filter system that combines Mexoryl® SX and XL and Senna Alata extract.

Customer Reviews

Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50+ is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protecting my youth! I am so glad I purchased this product. A little goes a long way. It feels light on my sensitive skin and I feel safe knowing that I am using a product that will keep my skin looking young. I wear it all the time.. it's an EVERYDAY essential for me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unpleasant heavy scent I've used (and loved) this for years through several formulations. It has always been fragrance free. When I received a new bottle recently I thought it was fake product, because it has a heavy cloying scent now. It makes me sneeze, stings my face when applied, and the smell doesn't go away. Bottle doesn't say scented. Confirmed on website that LRP added perfume, why would they do that? I am tossing it. Heartbroken, this was the best sunscreen available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light, not greasy, great as a primer for foundation This summer I have discovered Anthelios 50+ and now wouldn't be without it. I am 44 and, having been a sun worshiper for decades but am now aware of the impact on my skin. My face does not tan evenly, due to sun damage I get dark patches, but now it does! This product may be factor 50+ but you still get a wonderful healthy glow whilst still caring for your skin. The damage takes years to appear, look after your face now before its too late! It is also incredibly light and fantastic as a primer for foundation!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super drying! I don't usually have dry skin or any sensitivities, but this stuff dries the skin on my nose/forehead/chin out like crazy. Every time I use it, within a few days I have peeling skin - even though I only ever use it over moisturiser. It's such a shame since other than that it's pretty good - perhaps it's due to the fact it contains alcohol?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lightweight I sweat a lot on holiday and get super red a flushed across my face because of mild rosacea. This is fantastic as I can protect my skin from the sun and cover my redness, without suffocating my skin and making me sweat even more! Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sunscreen. Ever. I've always used SPF15-20 moisturisers but in the last few years I have developed some dark spots on my face, and had been searching for a high factor sunscreen to use in summer. I tried several but found some to be heavy or greasy, and all left a white cast, even the lightweight ones designed to be worn under makeup; this is a particular problem for me as I have dark skin. Enter Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Ultra Light Fluid which is everything I wanted in a sunscreen, and more! It disappears into the skin, leaving a smooth, natural, comfortable finish and absolutely no white cast. This product has made such a difference to my skin and my confidence. I have been able to wear this product all summer without having to wear foundation to cover up a white cast, and my skin has benefited from using fewer layers. It's protected my skin very effectively and prevented the flare-ups of my dark spots. I now make sure I have a spare on hand, and it's become such an indispensable part of my skin care regime that I may continue to use it year round. Thank you for this wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sunscreen It's light, doesn't leave a greasy or grey film and feels hydrating too. It's not a luxury sunscreen, but for the price it is excellent value for money.
