Anthelios efficacy has been demonstrated via clinical studies carried out in-vivo on subjects suffering from sun intolerances, particularly those caused by UVA rays. Anthelios products all have a high PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) factor, offering one of the best protections against UVA offered by any brand in the world. The efficacy has been proven by a file of 16 clinical studies carried out by world-renowned expert dermatologists. The brand was also the first laboratory to use Mexoryl XL and Mexoryl SX and the first to use photostable UVA filters in its sun protection. 9/10 of dermatologists would recommend Anthelios*


The minimalist formula contains the best of our creations – designed for sensitive skin and all of its needs. Tested and re-tested for its efficacy and mildness on sensitive skin. It is also hypoallergenic.

This is a cosmetic product. For medical conditions seek advice from your GP

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooling and calming cream that really works... I purchased this recently in anticipation of sun burn and itchy skin during my holiday in Cyprus. It is a cream consistency in opposed to a gel as stated on the bottle. I used it as directed after a shower with damp skin and on dry skin also. I have very fussy skin but this product was amazing, it calmed my irritated itchy skin and sunburn; it was one of the rare few out of many product I have tried that actually worked. I would highly recommend and will be purchasing again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product. I really need to let people know that this cream is doing the job. I bought this product and I am using it since last year. I am using it as a body cream as well. Helped my kids and I after the first time of sunbathe, when we got very red. Also used it after I burned myself at work. No mark was left on my hand. Just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrated and smoothed This is my first time using La Roche-Posay suncare and I must say I'm a convert. I used this after sun during and after exposure to 35 degree heat and sun bathing. My akin felt comforted and hydrated. As other reviewers have noted, it isn't really a gel but a thick cream - you don't need a lot! My peely-wally skin went a deep golden brown and no peeling, which is a first for me. I feel my tan has been extended thanks to using this after sun 2-3 weeks after returning from my holiday . I used L R-P sun cream also and can recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LA Roche-Posay,-Posthelios melt-in Bel I was given this as a present and loved it. The lotion seems to seep into my skin, leaving it soft to the touch. My skin feels moistured and refreshed. I hope to try other preparations in the range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin lovely and soft This is not only great as aftersun cream. It's excellent as it rehydrated the skin and leave it lovely and soft. Always use this after a bath. Gave some to my daughter, who suffers from eczema. And it has done wonders for her skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I bought this as I had bought the aftersun gel whilst on holiday and loved it, however, this is not the same product. It’s a cream rather than a gel and can be quite sticky even when rubbed in. Still cooling after a day in the sun but not as much as you’d have expected from a “gel”

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This lotion smells nice and feels hydrating, however I don't feel like it really moisturised my skin or helped it repair after sun exposure. It has a slightly greasy texture which discourages me from putting much on my face. It's not really a gel, it's kind of in between a gel and a cream.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor after sun Bought two bottles for Barbados and it didn’t soothe any redness or sunburn. The gel consistency is good but it doesn’t work at all after repeat application.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very greasy and doesn’t soak in Very disappointed with this aftersun, applied it 3 hours ago and can still feel sitting greasy on my skin. Won’t be buying again.
