I absolutely love this product!! I have used Cetaphil sunscreen spf 50, and it left a white film on my face and made it greasy.
I also tried PC's spf 30 hydra-light sample, and I like the texture and "soft" feel of the product on my skin, but unfortunately that feeling goes away within an hour.
this is perfect for my combination skin, my skin quickly absorbs, and within a minute I am ready for makeup!!! Unfortunately, it is pricey, but a little of this stuff goes a long way. ,

Despite the many raves from Lisa Eldrige and Ruth Crilley - this was terrible one me. I have combination dry skin and this 'milk' just sits on top of my skin. The whiteness doesn't dissapear and when I put makeup on top it flakes away... everything I don't want in a sunscreen is in this bottle. It's a shame because I love LRP products except for this. It may be suited to other people/ skin types.

While touted for oily/combo skins with a matte finish, this is not. There is too much slip such that it slides right off my face. My experience with this brand has been that the cream sunscreens are much better since they adhere to the face and don't slide or sweat off. I am one wet mess with this but not with the melt-in cream. I find that I still get a lot of pigmentation with this but not with the cream versions. There is very little point of sunscreen if its so light it slides off. For any protection it needs to stay on the face and be able to weather the elements. The only fluid sunscreens I use are Asian brands since they are so far ahead in formulation, I recommend sana and sofina which are very elegant in formulation but don't have high physical blocker content.

I HATE sunscreen on my face!!!! It always ends up looking oily and forget putting makeup on top of it... what a mess at the end of the day. Don't get me started on the stinging eyes if I forget not to do them... arrrgh!
THIS IS THE EXCEPTION! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. It is a little runny so I put a little into my palm, rub my palms together then pat it on all over. Just a small amount. It settles to a luminous matte sheen which frankly makes my skin look FABULOUS.... with or without makeup. AND it keeps me hydrated all day without going shiny. AND there is no stinging! I don't know how they do it but this is a miracle cream for me.
I experienced no white sheen but then I use very little of it.
It is expensive.. I think I paid about USD40 for a 50ml size but it was on special offer so I got 2 bottles for the price of one. When I run out I will definitely repurchase because it is worth every penny and I hope they never discontinue this!
Oh, and personally I love the packaging. So easy to pack for trips and it's kinda cute...

This is the only sunscreen product (or moisturizer with spf) that I can actually use on my face. Normally anything with an SPF makes my face super oily and shiny looking. It offers a broad spectrum protection and actually absorbs to a matte finish with a velvety feeling. It's very fluid so a little goes a long way. This is my must have for the summer months! The only down side is I wish you got more of the product, where I am it's close to 30$ and its rather small.

Oh My Good Lord! This is my story of La Roche Posay's Anthelios xl....
I don't usually go out in the sun but as i'd started walking the dog in the morning, I thought I'd better start wearing some sort of sun protection on my face.
I trotted into Boots one day and was having a look in the La Roche Posay section as I use their skincare on a daily basis, i happened to see the Anthelios XL and thought why not give this ago, it was really expensive but seeing as it was such a high SPF and I liked their skincare I thought I'd give it a whirl.
Woke up the next day and shoved some on my face, holy jesus is this stuff oily! I was rubbing it in like a mad woman to try and get rid of the greasy film that was now coating my face. I massaged it in best and I could and went and walked the dog.
Came back and I looked in the mirror, I was just a complete mess, I've never been so oily in my entire life!
Now this is the stupid thing I actually carried on using it for about 5 days, I've never had a sun cream with such a high SPF so I thought the whole oily situation was pretty normal.
My skin went from pretty spotty, to acne bump alert!
My whole face was covered in bumps and the oil was unbelievable, I looked so bad, even my mum asked what the heck was going on.
I've stopped using this for about 2-3 weeks and my face has got so many spots where my pores were just so clogged up and unable to breathe, they are really big and I'm pretty sure I'll have a good few acne scars for a while :(
Moral of the story, is to never ever ever use this sun cream again!

This is an excellent sunscreen, it provides AMAZING protection. I use products that make my skin sensitive to the sun (retinols, AHAs, and BHAs) and this really protects my skin from further irritation. I also have noticed that since wearing this, my hyperpigmentation from left over acne scars have faded, while this was not the case when I was using a difference sunscreen before but with the same skincare routine. The formula is very runny, but doesn't feel greasy or heavy on the skin at all. It is initially very easy to spread then sets to a nice semi-matte finish, not drying my skin out at all. I am also acne prone and this hasn't caused any breakouts for me after several months of use. My only issue with this SS and hence why I knocked down one lippie is that is leaves a slight white cast on my tan skin, no matter how much I blend. It's easy to cover with foundation, but on days when I don't want to wear MU I usually end up looking ghostly. However, I will continue to use this until I find something better!

I love this sunscreen, I wear it pretty much daily and it;s the only one that doesn't make my sensitive skin feel oily/ break out.

I absolutely LOVE this sunscreen. It goes on nice and matte, doesn't smell like sunscreen long after you've applied and definitely does the job - I've yet to get a burn on my face and I've been outside enough that I definitely would have without it! I wear it everyday under my foundation/BB cream, the trick is to make sure you wait a few minutes after applying to let it dry before putting anything on afterwards. It's a little pricier than I would like but I have super sensitive skin and have learned my lesson that usually when it comes to my face I get what I pay for and have to splurge a bit.

I am very fair, and I am very prone to burning. I also take a medication that makes me more photosensitive, so sunscreen is a must. I don't use this one every day, but if I am going to be outdoors for more than about half an hour I do put this on my face. It works quite nicely under makeup, which surprised me. I had previously always used cheap sunscreens on my face, but after my experience with LRP, I don't think I will any more. It feels a bit oily at first, but once it sinks in it gets a semi-matte kind of feeling to it. It isn't overly "sunscreen" scented and it doesn't irritate the skin, but of course it will sting your eyes if you get it too close. I've also found that my skin is a lot softer and it feels healthier after washing my face if I've been using this all day. It is definitely a summertime staple for me, and I will repurchase even though it is expensive.
