La Roche-posay Anthelios XL Fluid SPF 50+ review

 As I started noticing the first signs of aging I knew what was possibly causing it and I also knew what I had to do next. I have been intentionally skipping this step in my everyday skincare regime as I dislike the thought of greasy skin. Yes, I am talking about the usage of sunscreen on a daily basis because I have had it reserved only for my beach holidays. But now there was no escape and I had to hunt down a product with a high SPF that worked for my combination skin that was light weight that would give me protection from both UVA and UVB rays and above all it would not leave a white cast on my skin. So, did I find my Holy Grail product? Lets see….

Product name: La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Fluid 50+ SPF

Quantity: 50 ml

Price: RS 1400

La Roche-Posay says:

This product provides high broad spectrum sun protection against the harmful effects of both UVA and UVB rays. Contains La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water.



My experience:

Everyone needs to wear a sunscreen, even if you are indoors and I only realised this when I started seeing age spots and dark spots around my eyes.

After much deliberation I figured I needed La Roche posay Anthelios spf 50 in my life as reading reviews on the web helped me make a decision. I have used some products from their brand and I really liked them so it was easy to bestow my trust in them this time around. I use this every morning after my cleansing, toning and moisturising routine and then apply this all over my face and neck as a last step followed by makeup to finish off.

This product comes in a very sleek superior quality plastic bottle with a tiny nozzle to dispense the required amount and it is easy to carry around for reapplication as it conveniently fits in my makeup bag. The stuff is runny in texture and be sure to shake the bottle thoroughly before every use. This sunscreen is very light weight, gets absorbed into the skin immediately and leaves no white cast or greasiness on my skin. In fact, I feel my skin looks smoother, plump and evened out after its application. I have noticed that this works as an excellent base for makeup almost like a primer and on a no makeup day too I have observed that even on its own it does not make my face shiny indoors but outdoors it sure does get slightly oily so you will need to carry a compact/ pressed powder to blot the excess shine. I have not experienced any sunburn or suntan when I use it. It just works beautifully and the amazing part is it did not break me out.

Final thoughts:

This is an Ultra-light fluid with a very high SPF of 50+, its paraben free, fragrance free and works for all skin types including sensitive skin and sun intolerant skin. It is water resistant but don’t forget to reapply if you perspire. It gives protection from UVA and UVB rays and it’s great for my combination skin. It sits well under makeup but you will need to powder as it tends to get a little oily as the day progresses. I would totally recommend this product to everyone.

Thanks for reading.
