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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Briliant results ! This product provides amazing hydration which makes my tan bright and my skin feels really soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best aftersun I’ve used I love this aftersun - I discovered it on holiday in Italy after burning one shoulder during a boat ride without realising. I bought this from a chemist and applied that night. It instantly soothed and hydrated my skin, the smell is gorgeous too (and as a bonus now reminds me of holidays!). I’ve used this ever since and am now on my third bottle. I carried on applying it each day even after the sunburn had healed and it stopped any peeling too. I now use this each evening during the summer and it keeps my skin in lovely mouisturised condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooled down and saved my shoulders! Having been a little silly and burning my shoulders recently, I applied this cream and it really helped cool it down and help the skin to recover. Not too much of an overpowering scent and the texture of the cream is nice.

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.
