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.

This sunscreen literally melts into your skin. I, unfortunately, have only been able to use this product for a short amount of time. I purchased it late in the season and the weather has changed and I am no longer spending much time outside. I look forward to using more of this product once the sun comes out again.

Very nice product, nice texture not greasy, good for oily skins
Research ingredients before buying a sunscreen !!
Cali_Cosmo from Ca
Used after moisturizer in the morning and before makeup. After a 2 weeks I notice I was breaking out and had small pimples all over forehead and chin. After a few more weeks of changing my skin care routine for acne I was still breaking out. Looked at the ingredients and researched that it was the sunscreen that was causing me to breakout a lot this whole time.
Side note, if you like a product dont change. Lol I changed my sunscreen and now I regret it.
Great sun protection that goes on light
anonymous from El Centro, CA
It's lightweight, absorbs quickly, no residue, no filmy feeling, no breakouts. One of the best in the market!
Kyky from Miami, FL
Why??? I just purchased it and it feels great on my skin, but having to put alcohol on a daily basis on my skin feels like it would do more harm than good. I'm mad at myself for not reading the ingredients before I bought it, but I trusted the brand so much that I didn't bother until I got home and tried it. Big mistake. Not only is alcohol denat on the top if the ingredient list, I just can't believe a company known for formulating for sensitive skin types would put such a harmful ingredient in their formula. It really makes me question what la roche posay stands for and I'm wary to buy another product from them from now on.
Anthelios Ultra is my "GO TO" for sunscreen
anonymous from Ohio
I've been using La Roche Posay sunscreen for two decades. The Anthelios is incredible. It's light, it doesn't mess with any makeup I wear, my choice is always the fragrance free product, and most importantly - it works.

This is the only facial SPF that doesn't turn crumbly when it mixes with my moisturizer. My makeup also sits very nicely on top of this sunscreen which is important to me because I need a sunscreen that works for me and in the past I have had to choose between sun protection and my confidence.
This is my sunscreen
Eb from Miami
It's a good sunscreen worthy it
Effective and light protection

Effective and light protection. Suitable for my sensitive skin and protected effectively.
Marylg from VA
This is a wonderful facial sunscreen. Soaks right in, makes your skin feel better, and you can't tell you are wearing it.
Inlove with this sunscreen!
tbb from Las Vegas, NV
I've tried a bunch of face sunscreens and this is by far the best of all. It doesn't leave any white cast and feels very lightweight. The consistency is runny almost close to water consistency-which I don't mind as long as it is doing it's job, honestly. This never broke my face out or felt oily during this Summer season. Will continue to purchase!
I would totally buy this product again
Mar from Pleasant Grove, UT
Use it in the morning with my tinted moisturizer and may add foundation if I feel like it. Feel protected and my skin feels great.
Thanks for your product!

Fun in the sun!
anonymous from Northwest Illinois
This is my all-time favorite sun screen. It's non greasy and melts into my skin perfectly. Spend less money on your bathing suit and more on your face.
Good at first
amarie from Houston, TX
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!
