Most Helpful Positive Review Great Investment
I am very fair skinned and very dedicated to sun protection and skin care. I used to use only moisturizers/BB creams that included high SPF, but since I've incorporated the La Roche-Posay facial sunscreen into my daily routine, I'm able to use lots of different products. I use a daily moisturizer, then this sunscreen, then primer, then foundation/CC cream. This sunscreen is light, absorbs quickly, doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy, and although it has a slight sunscreeny smell at first it disappears very quickly. It does NOT negatively affect your daily skincare/make up routine at all. As for the price, it is definitely higher than I typically spend, but for the quality and the small amount you use every day, it is VERY worth it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Excellent Up To A Point
I've ben using this product for about a month now. I love the way this goes on, not greasy or too white. Not as watery as the Neutrogena product I had been using. Blends in well, plays well with makeup. I put this on and then foundation. Very satisfied to that point.
However, I just went out with my sunglasses on the first "hot" day of the year. Where my face got a bit sweaty under my sunglasses, my skin turned an interesting shade of neon yellow. I am quite fair, by the way. Not flattering, to say the least. I almost want to try it on a very hot day to see if it's the sweat or sweat plus sunglasses causing the reaction, but it won't be in public.
While I will finish the bottle (too pricey to pitch), it will be on cool days only. I may try the other versions LRP has, but will read reviews more closely. A pity, as I love a sunscreen with an SPF this high and the product feels wonderful. I wish I could get the French version.

The first few days I used this product it was great! Lightweight, easy to apply and matte. However now every time I apply this it pills. It pills so much no matter how I apply or how long I've waited for my other skin care to sink in. I have to go in with a clean fluffy brush and brush off the mess. On top of that it stains white clothes yellow. The collars of my white tops now have neon yellow stains around them.

I have sensitive skin and struggle with moderate acne. This sunscreen is gentle enough to use every day without causing breakouts. It actually feels nice on your skin!
Erin from Orange County, CA
I first received this product as a free sample last month. I loved it so much I had to buy more as soon as I finished the sample. It is light enough to wear under makeup amd it does bot feel greasy at all. It also did not turn my face bright yellow or green as some other reviewers complained about. Great product! Highly recommend!
I love this sunscreen!
Dani from Cali
So I have sensitive combo skin and it can be hard for me to find the right sunscreen for my face since most sunscreen is oily and that makes me break out and I was hesitant on this one cause it drys matte and I have dry patches on my face. This sunscreen does work!! A little goes a long way, I shake it up and let it drip a little on my face and rub it in. Drys very nicely on the skin and no dry patches or break outs!! I have medium tan skin and I do not see any white cast over my skin and I have not seen any staining. Worth the buy to me !

This formula is lightweight, soaks right in and provides great protection. The only complaint I have is that it slightly irritates my eyes when I sweat.
Light sunscreen for anyone
Angela6969 from undisclosed
It's very light and makes the skin looks matte without looking too matte. Great value for the money!
I love this sunscreen
Mo from LA
It goes on a little runny so make sure you only use a few drops. Once you have put it on it dries so silky.
Mess under makeup
Susan from Alabama
Foundation would not stay on with this product. Waste of time and money.
Best sunscreen for the face
BeachladyOG from Ocean Grove NJ
I love this ultra light facial sunscreen because it is so lightweight. It feels wonderful in the skin, not heavy or greasy, and doesn't cause any breakouts. It's the best sunscreen I've purchased for my face.
I do like it
Cinamon from MT
I used to use this when I didn't care how much money that I spent but I since have been trying other sunscreens. Recently I tried waxing my face and had a reaction to either the wax or just can't wax my face. Anyway, I knew the sunscreen that I was currently using was too harsh for my now fragile skin so I ran to Ulta before they closed and bought this. It is still just as gentle, invisible, and protects my skin just as well as it used to. I am so glad that Ulta still carries it.
Ruins fabric with neon yellow stains permanently
LaLa from Los Angeles
I really liked the matte finish and the sunscreen protection. However I would put it on my face and wait 30 minutes before applying eye makeup. I commute over 30 minutes. I would put my expensive facial masks on. It permanently stained it with a neon yellow stains. I tried three different types of chemicals to remove it with no success. Even "kiss it off "and "love Soil " which we use in art school to remove ink, blood, lipstick stains, you name it, can't remove it with several applications . Yet not even those stain removers can get these ugly yellow stains. It ruined $40 worth of expensive masks . I had to return both bottles. Avoid!
The Best Face Sunscreen!
may4 from New Jersey
This is by far the best face sunscreen I ever used. I bought it to cover a new scar on my neck and to protect my face from discoloration and the sun. This sunscreen is super light with a matte finish. I put it on before my makeup. I have been VERY happy with the coverage!
Rubs in smoothly!
Nelizabeth from Baltimore,MD
I use this product as the last step in my morning skincare routine. It rubs into my skin very nicely without any cast and it doesn't feel oily or greasy. So far I'm really liking it!
Not for sensitive skin
Brittbelle from Hammond
I got this as a mini sample from an Ulta purchase and my skin has broken out all over in little red dots. I do have sensitive skin but I've never had this much trouble from sunscreen.
Turns yellow when one sweats!
LLee from Edmond, OK
I've used this product 3 times. Purchased because it it water resistant and I wanted to use it while walking outside. Once I start sweating, I end up with bright yellow streaks all down my face. Ugh!
Love this sunscreen!
Boston Bonnie from Carlsbad, CA
I use this sunscreen on my face, and it's the BEST. My skin can break out from many other sunscreens, but this is light and isn't greasy at all.
Not worth the money
Dee Cal from Huntington Beach, CA
I bought this product because it said I had a matte finish, but this does not. Not only is it not a matte finish, it makes you extra shiny and my skin broke out from it slightly. I would skip this product if you're like me and have oily skin with minor acne problems.
The best sunscreen I have ever used
Carol03 from New Jersey
The best sunscreen I have ever used it on my face. Definitely a must buy it is part of my daily facial care
Great concept, but...
Miss B from undisclosed
I found it much too greasy and I have very dry skin. It offers no coverage, unlike Rosaliac CC Cream I've used for years. This was not a good purchase for me and it's going into the drawer to be forgotten. Please bring back the Rosaliac CC Cream which covers and doesn't melt off on the golf course when it's 90 degrees.
Turned my face neon green!
Lane from Jackson, MI
I normally love La Roche-Posay sunscreens. This one, however, turns my skin neon green when I sweat. It is not a good choice for any outdoor sports.
Great for sensitive and prone skin
Kbark from Estero, FL
I purchased this product after looking for a facial sunscreen that would not break my face out or burn my skin as much as some heavier ones. I have to say that I LOVE this product and will be sure to stock up for the Summer as I have to wear it almost every day living in Florida. I also tried the milk sunscreen and it works great as well, for me it is a bit heavier on the face but is great for the body.
do not buy
cee from htx
bought this sunscreen and it ruined my skin, i feel like this sunscreen had something that triggered me to get rosacea, i used to have somewhat clear skin before ever using this and now there's no going back from the damage it caused
Turned Greenish/Yellow on my face after sweating
Jbueno from Houston, Tx
I absolutely love La Roched-Posay products and have used them for years. I love how smooth, and non-greasy, the finish is but after going for a run the sunblock turned greenish/yellow on my face. Mainly where I would sweat the most...ie.. forehead and side of my face. I gave the product multiple tries and it happened every time. While I love your products, they are a little pricey, so I'm surprised by this. Maybe it would be best to wear for everyday use and not for athletic use.
Not what I hoped
Kpop from Taos, NM
I bought this two months ago and although I like the formulation and that it doesn't leave much cast, it makes my skin SO GREASY and it pills with other products. Also feels super heavy and clogs my pores.
Erin from Virginia
This is amazing. Leaves my face silky smooth. Very similar to the discontinued Lancome spf 50+ facial sunscreen, but half the price.
