La Roche-Posay anthelios XL 50+ SPF tinted cream



The sun has finally come out in england, and that means wearing sun protection is ever more important. Whilst browsing for a new SPF,  i came across the La Roche-Posay anthelios XL tinted cream, which as the name suggests, is a tinted suncream. This appealed to me greatly as the dreaded white cast is something i try to avoid at all costs. Containing factor 50+ SPF protection against UVA and UVB rays, this is more than enough protection for england and can certainly suitable to be used abroad. The formula contains La Roche-Posay thermal spa water as an active ingredient, which is a great anti-oxidant with soothing, softening and anti-irritating properties. Although i don't find this product soothing, it does not irritate the skin at all.This cream is great as seeing as it's tinted, i can wear it alone and it helps to smooth over any inperfections and add a bit of coverage to my face. It by no means covers everything, but during summer this is a great benefit as wearing tons of layers is a no no, so i can skip on the base on average days or at least use less. I sometimes even use this product as my moisturiser if i'm in a hurry or its a particularly hot day, and i find it to be enough moisturisation for my normal/dehydrated skin.

It leaves a lovely dewy finish on the skin, but i always make sure to powder when wearing it alone as unfortunately it can feel slightly tacky on the skin. All in all i find this to be a great product for summer as there's no chance of burning or ending up with a ghostly face. Very pale skins may struggle with the shade but anyone with a light/medium to medium skin tone would suit it just fine. Costing only £15 and currently on offer for £11.25 at boots, this a really affordable product with great results. If this product isn't for you, then i still recommend checking out the rest of the anthelios range as I've head nothing but good things and there should be a formula for everyone.


Whats your favourite sun protection for summer?
