I was recently sent two amazing sun protection products from La Roche-Posay which my reviewer Krista tested for us, here is her opinion.
La Roche- Posay Anthelios XL 60 and Ultra-Fluid Face ProtectionProperties: Contains patented Mexoryl® sunscreen technology and other sunscreen filters and has been rigorously formulated to provide excellent protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Breakthrough texture: This weightless texture penetrates fast and leaves skin feeling clean and matte. Suitable also for daily use. Excellent make-up base.
TESTED ON SENSITIVE SKIN – FRAGRANCE-FREE – PARABEN-FREE – NON-COMEDOGENIC – TESTED UNDER DERMATOLOGICAL CONTROL – WATER RESISTANT.
I personally used the lightweight lotion and face protection for about a month. I have also put it on my 5 year old and 18 month old as it is for fair skin, sensitive skin, it is fragrance free and hypo-allergenic. I must say that these are excellent products.
La Roche- Posay Anthelios XL 60 and Ultra-Fluid Face Protection offer excellent sun protection, my sensitive family has had no breakouts or reactions, there is no shine or greasiness and it absorbs into the skin very quickly. None of us have yet gotten sunburnt.
There is a slight white cast that is barely visible on our very fair skin but may be a problem for those with darker skin tones. It also has a slight chemical smell but it didn’t bother us. I have also found that it makes my skin more dry than normal, however the kids have been fine. This may be due to the fact that I have dry skin to begin with.
I do feel that the pros substantially outweigh the cons. It is easy to apply to squirmy children and absorbs quickly, so it doesn’t leave stains on clothing. It is also great for sensitive skin! I will use these products again and recommend them for anyone seeking protection from the sun.
