Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Love this so much! I have dry, eczema prone skin but find that a lot of SPFs break me out but this one doesn’t at all. It’s quite thick but doesn’t leave a white cast. I’ve finally found my holy grail sunscreen, woohooooo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 would recommend! Love this! Sinks into the skin quickly and leaves no whiteness. The salicylic acid really helps to keep away any blemishes rather than clogging the pores like some SPF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from La Roche-Possy Love it! Not greasy at all & didn’t make my skin spotty like usual SPF.
Date published: 2020-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I totally recommend it! I have combination skin and I really like this product because during summer and specially while using suncream, my skin becomes more oily. The fact that this cream is also anti-imperfection, does not decrease its efficacy. It protected me during the day and I always use SPF50+, which is perfect. I have sensitive skin and the salicylic acid content did not irritate my skin. I also liked the gel-cream texture. It is easy to apply and feels light on the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab Very fair skin prone to blemishes. Applies easily and leaves a healthy glow without being thick, leaving marks and and feels nice. Make-up applies easily afterwards and at the end of the day still felt fresh and none of that heavy clogged feeling you can get with sun creams/makeup. Really impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for acne prone skin! I’ve never used sunscreen consistently because I have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. And it’s been hard to find a sunscreen that would suit all my concerns for my problematic skin.. I have used many sunscreens but they have always failed and broke me out. BUT this Anthelios Anti Imperfection sunscreen is the best and I would never go for anything else. It absorbs into my skin, doesn’t leave a white layer that usual sunscreens leave and I feel protected from the sun. I 100% recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product Nice light, non greasy lotion. Easy to apply. Not shiny. Will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neither greasy nor chalky This leaves a lovely matte finish that isn't greasy or streaky, and I'm pretty sure it makes some blemishes disappear. I don't find it chalky, but I do have quite pale skin. Here's how I apply it so it doesn't pill: The first time I used it, I applied it after my moisturiser and massaged it in circles on my skin, which resulted in the sun cream pilling and peeling off after an hour or so. Instead, I now apply it after a serum (I skip the moisturiser) and I first spread it over my fingertips and then dab it on my face. This stops it from pilling and also makes it easier to apply, as it's quite hard to spread by just rubbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing factor 50 protection for my face This face sun cream is amazing stuff..keeps my oily skin matt all day...would never even consider any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An SPF that doesn't feel like an SPF! Lovely texture that allows make up over without looking "shiny". I up to SPF50 in summer months and use SPF30 Effacclar duo the rest of the year. I've combination skin and this is one of the only SPF face creams I've found that doesn't break me out. Great price too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for problem skin I'vre always had terrible acne and sensitive skin and I've always been worried to use suncream as I know how it always causes my spots to flare up. This suncream product is the first I've seen that has salicylic acid. I don't know why it's not in all suncream products! I wore this everyday on my holiday and didn't breakout once, it's such long lasting that I've continued to use this daily under my makeup, and it works amazingly. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who has had problem with breakouts and suncream in the past. It's non-greasy, flattering, and doesn't cause any breakouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal suncream for breakout prone skin I gave this a really good trial over the summer months and was very happy with it. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts around my skin and obviously suncream doesn't always help by clogging the pores. This was ideal. Was a really good base for make up too. I love the whole range, but this is a nice addition by adding in the spot fighting ingredients. So yes. Very pleased with this product. Will continue to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SPF This is easy to use, goes on easily and feels great on the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect face SPF This product is fantastic for face SPF and under make up. I’ve used both at home during the summer months and abroad in 40 degree heat and it’s protected me from the sun, while not breaking out my skin or leaving a greasy residue on my skin. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light for a 50 spf So many spfs that are over 39 I find are. Rey heavy on the skin. I really liked this product as it was light and gave great sun protection. I use retinol products at night so love to wear to a high spf during the day. I am starting to become more aware of sun protection as I get older and live that this also covers my skin imperfections too. Really liked this product and as an outdoor person who loves gardening I find that it gave great protection without needing to reapply often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab sunscreen My son suffers from spots which can be made worse by sunscreen. This sunscreen worked well for him on holiday and his skin really improved over the 2 weeks.
Date published: 2019-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No grease or spots Most high protection suncreams don't agree with my complexion - after I've used them for a day or two I start to suffer from breakouts but the Anthelios anti-imperfection sunscreen changes all that. I'm really happy with it - it works brilliantly under make up and I don't end up looking greasy or spotty. It's now a permanent part of my summer routine.
Date published: 2019-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thus is fab I tried several in this range and all provide fantastic UV coverage but this is amazing. No greasy residue and works brilliantly if applied before make up. Would definitely recommend. I often use these products just when abroad but think this one would be great for everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Stuff! I am a big fan of the Anthelios range and I decided to try the Anti-Imperfection SPF50+ on an ultra marathon I was running this June. I am outdoors a lot and so sun protection is a huge priority however the combination of sweat and sunscreen often leads to breakouts. I am really pleased to report that I didn't suffer with any post use breakouts at all, despite a few re-applications and running in the sun for over 14 hours. This is amazing stuff and does what it promises. I love the texture too and find it is easy to apply and doesn't leave m skin looking like I have just applied sunscreen. I will definitely keep using this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light on the skin Loved using this product. felt very light on the skin almost forgot i was wearing anything. Also not sticky and absorbs quickly. Love that it feels natural and unscented.
Date published: 2019-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product in the Anthelios Range I'm already a fan of Anthelios as I spend a lot of time sailing and need quality sun protection, however, I have noticed that after a few weeks I can develop the odd spot - not with this one. Great protection but not greasy.
