The best primer/sunscreen ever !

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Face Primer with Sunscreen SPF 50:

    I really like La Roche-Posay and I've been using another sunscreen from this line for many years now. Last week I got this primer/sunscreen for mothers day as a gift. It is AWESOME ! It keeps my oily skin shine free and stays in place for a long time in Las Vegas weather ! It doesn't have color and doesn't cover freckles or discolorations or blemish scars but blurs my pores and fine lines very well and gives me a fresh, matte but not flat ,polished look .It doesn't feel heavy or caky so I can easily use my powder foundation or even liquid foundations on top.And it doesn't make me break out ,which is a big plus for me. For work and routine daily use, I just put it on after my moisturizer ,add a light powder and I'm ready to go.Unless I need more coverage that day ,then I would add foundation on top .If you like to know how the consistency of this product is , It is like a gel powder, more solid than liquid though. I put small dots of it on different parts of my face and then rub it gently with fingers. It spreads very smoothly and absorbs fairly quickly.I've used it for even my under eye area and it neither cracked nor sat in the fine lines.I LOVE this product and will definitely buy this again and again.

    Pretty Decent for combo/oily skin

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Face Primer with Sunscreen SPF 50:

    This works pretty decently for those with Oily or Combination Skin, but in order to get good SPF coverage you need to put on the standard 1/4 tsp all over your face. I tend to use it in combination with another "chemical SPF" and concentrate this in my oily areas (T Zone). This does do a good job of making makeup look even and keeps your pores from showing so badly (glassy surface look). It didn't crease on me after 8 hours of wear with MAC Matchmaster over it. Be sure when you apply that you warm it between your fingers before rubbing it on because it's quite thick at first.

    Best brand on the market

    By LigiasMum

    from Edmonds, WA

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Face Primer with Sunscreen SPF 50:

    I've been using this brand for just over 20 years. Originally buying it at a surgeon's office. the first time I saw it in ULTA, I was so excited. This brand consistently ranks very high with consumer reports. My grandmother swore by it. I don't wear foundation, I never have. I dab concealer on any blemish/problem area. Apply this and blend on my face. I then set with a loose powder. No one ever believes my age. I owe it to continued use of this product.

        Comments about La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Face Primer with Sunscreen SPF 50:

        This primer goes on very smooth & leaves no pills. It takes away shine from my forehead and chin, smoothes out fine lines and lessens the look of pores. It provides a smooth base for either tinted moisturizer or foundation. With 50spf, i no longer need to use a separate product for the protection.

              I really enjoy using this product. The spf 50 makes me feel protected and the thicker consistency is actually what I prefer (similar to the consistency of a pore filling primer). Makeup applies nicely over this primer too. I trust this brand La Roche Posay and I know that this brand is popular in France. I will buy this again when it runs out.

                  This product does offer some good coverage (haven't had to use makeup over top of it to hide any botchiness I have). The only thing that drives me nuts is that you basically have to put it on an area once and avoid really rubbing in or else the product leaves flakes/cakes or product residue that's noticeable, if that makes sense. I do like how it feels though. I feel like my skin is protected because the layer feels so thick as it goes on. You aren't left with that feeling though, as it seemingly absorbs into the skin and feels smooth.

                    I love this primer-just a very small amount goes a long way. The first time I used it I used too much as I had to get used to the texture. It is a little thick and dry but once you smooth it on it softens and events out skin. Bonus is that it has SPF 50 sunscreen. I've worn alone and under makeup.

                      Since it's a primer, can I use foundation over it? Or mix it with my foundation? I see that the usage instructions say that this should be applied after everything else on your face.
