Press

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.

Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50+ is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great even for everyday use This is a high SPF sun protectant that I highly recommend. The texture is fairly light, it does not feel oily or greasy, sinks into the skin well and you can easily put make-up on top of it- I have not experienced foundations going streaky or fading because of it. That makes it ideal for day-to-day use. If you don't wear make-up or you need to top your sunscreen up during the day (it is recommended by dermatologists that you add a new layer of SPF every 2-3 hours to maintain the level of protection) you can chuck it into your bag as the plastic bottle is compact and travels really well. Overall, a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect to wear underneath makeup I have been using this La-Roche-Posay - La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ for a couple of weeks. We haven't had much sun in the UK over Jan and Feb however I have made sure that I use this product even when it's a cloudy day. I have been using daily as my go to suncream straight after my moisturiser. As I currently laser my face I have been told to use suncream as protection. Whilst applying this cream, it is very light, it's quite smooth and smells pleasant. Other sun creams on the market are quite thick and make my brown face look super ashy and white, however this product really is nice. It is quite pricey but as long as it protects my face I am happy. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 34 years old, combination/oily skin, rosacea priority for me was protection. This ticks all the boxes it's spf50 and broad spectrum. Second was the formula this one is as it says light weight, you can put makeup on straight away, it's not oily or chalky and acts as a very good primer actually. I've taken photos too and there's no flash back. Then thirdly the practicality it's very small slim bottle makes it easy to carry in your bag. I have it with me at all times and put it on my neck and hands. My skin type is in the description so if you're like me I can say it will be perfect for you too. What I can't comment on is performance as its Feb and we've git no sun so I'm hoping when the sun comes it does the job

Rated 2 out of 5 by from breakouts I love all LRP products usually but this is the exception. I've used the dry touch gel spf previously and loved it but the fluid is just not up to scratch. Very greasy to apply and I've broken out very badly since using - something that never happened with the gel. Sun protection seems ok, but if you have sensitive/acne prone skin AVOID.

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 5 out of 5 by from Works well with my oily skin! I bought this product because I have oily skin and I didn't want to have an oily texture on my face... The product is actually more liquidish that I was expected the first time I used it, but once you know, you are more careful when you use the bottle... I use sunscreen everyday, especiall now that the sun has come out... and it's been great! Very nice texture!! Almost feel like I haven't put anything on (in terms of feeling on the face), when I actually put on probably the best sunscreen I have ever used! Very pleased! To add to that, it is the perfect size to take on a cabin luggage if going away for the week-end, so perfect! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great on the go sunscreen! I love la Roche-Posay products and this doesn't disappoint. It's a bit runny but absorbs well without being greasy, and a great base for make-up - I've been using it instead of moisturiser! Haven't tested it in full summer sunshine but for everyday use in the UK it's great. I'm still looking for the sunscreen that doesn't leave my skin feeling slightly sticky, but I'm actually not convinced it exists and this in the meantime works very well. The size is very handy to have on the go as well - very convenient to have with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight formula. Affords maximum protection under the sun with an ultra light consistency, easily absorbed by the ski, with a dewy finish. It does not seem to clog the pores or cause the unsightly whiteness typical of most high factor sunscreens. Great product as a base under make up too.
