I have been using this about a month now and so far, I can say that I am very impressed.
I have combination skin which is getting drier with age. Even though I live in a sunny country and have dark spots from the sun, I used to avoid sunscreens for every day and preferred moisturisers with SPF because sunscreens broke me out. In the past I had worn sunscreen from Avene and more receintly s Clinique's City Block SPF 35 but I did get the occasional spot and they, especially the latter, felt heavy.
Well, not this one. It goes on liquid-y and matte - in fact, it gives a white case but after 2 or 3 minutes this is gone. I don't use any moisturiser underneath as I don't feel it dries my skin out (yet). More importantly, I wore it during a very sunny holiday and my skin did not even begin to tan - to me this means it gives excellent coverage. Further, I've had no breaks out so far.
The price is reasonable and I will definitely repurchase. I'm not giving it 5 lippies as I want to give it another 2 months for that.
This is the first la roche posay product that let me down !!! It is the worst sunscreen i have ever bought... I have dry skin but I always choose sunscreens for oily skin because I want a matt finish and light texture.. Anyway.... This made my face RED and irritated and except that... It absorbed all or my oil and turned my skin super dry..!!! It even gave me new dry patches that I didn't know I had!!!
Horrible product for me. I have dry, flakey, rosacean, sensitive, reactive, acne-prone skin with lots of fine lines. This made my skin look the worst it has looked in years. It's my own fault for buying something that's made for oily skin, but I usually do fine with sunscreens for oily skin. This stuff emphasizes every flake and wrinkle, it balls up terribly, it makes me dry and itchy all day, and it looks ghosty. And it's not cheap. Awful! I did have a good buying experience from Pharmamundi on Amazon. Got it quickly and it's clearly not old product (expires 7/2015) - other than that, this was a major fail. Wish I could return it.
I really like this product,spf 30 is great for spring, for summer I use higher spf. I mix my regular moisture cream with this spf and apply it on my face, it works best for me that way. When I put this spf alone it is little bit white, and if there are some dry areas it doesn't but when I mix it with moisture cream it looks great. Price is little bit expensive but it is a good product.
amazing! very matte on your skin unlike most if not all SS that causes that oily look. doesn't have a hindering ugly smell and in pics, the white cast is barely noticeable for me!
overall, good product. i live in the desert and sun screen is an absolute MUST as the sun is always blazing away. after i started using this, i noticed my skin tanned a lot less and was also just overall healthier and glowier. i like it tons!
i have sensitive skin and A LOT of sunscreen has just given me horrible break outs. this has not!
I have sensitive, combination skin that becomes oily after a few hours (mainly due to my country's humid weather and the outdoor nature of my job). This product truly mattifies my face, such that I don't get the oily gleam that usual sunscreens leave after a while. The only downside is that SPF 30 is not strong enough to last a day. I personally find Kiehl's BB Cream better, if you're fine with just a little shine!
I love it ,
love the texture , the smell - it protected my fair face in super hot india !
had to re-apply a little as i was sweating so much - but never took one sunburn just if i stayed exposed VERY long a slight shinny moisturized tan .
I have sensitive skin and often allergies and itchiness from sunscreens and this one i actually applied on my face and nothing !
so yes for me one of the best .
This was recommended to me by my dermatologist, so I've decided to give it a try. The only times when I use it is when I am going outdoors. This sunscreen works really well on my acne prone skin, & it doesn't cause me to outbreak after a long day out in the sun with all the dirt & sweat.
One good tip to go about applying this on your face is do not over apply it thinking that more is good = more protection. This is a major no no, over applying it will cause your face to be oilier than usual, & it will make your face look whiter & even break out. On the side note, I don't know is it me or the bottle at home is old, I find the spf 50 version more pleasant smelling. continued >>
ok so i bought this because my usual chanel one was running out and i wasnt near a chanel counter plus i had been thinking that its 40 euro price tag was becoming a bit of a joke every month. So i was in the local chemist and spotted this and decided that at 17 euro it couldnt hurt and that it might not brak me out considering it is for oily or spot prone skin.
Its fantastic. It has a semi matt finish similar to chanel uv 50, it hasnt caused me one blocked pore despte the fact that i use soooo much of it every morning. Its just great. Plus it has a rather high ppd of 20 (in ireland anyway) which is a lot higher than most sunblocks especially those in the PA system.
if i had any gripes it would be that i wish its ppd was closer to 30 like it other ones in the range but its ok. its still high uva protection and one of the best you can get. The only other thing is that it has alcohol dentent near the top of the ingredient list which is why its good for oily skin, and although it doesnt in any way dry out my skin i jst wishit was so close to the top of the list.
overall its really fantastic and i will definitely repurchase. I use the spf 50 for days when its really sunny but in ireland thats not usually the case unfortunately lol.
I don't suffer from acne but sunscreen in general tends to make me break out and I absolutely HATE the greasy, shiny look of most sunscreen products....which is what led me to buy Anthelios AC. Man, so expensive for this little bottle of white, watery liquid. I've only used it a couple of times and that required applying it in natural light with a mirror to make sure I didn't have any white streaks left on my face. I now just use it for my nose....I can't imagine putting this stuff on my entire face.Too drying and makes my look like a pale zombie. Am back on the search for new sunscreen.
