Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect one step protection!
I have ivory-pink fair skin and don't ever tan. I use an SPF 50 sunscreen 365 days a year, rain or shine to protect my skin. I had been using a liquid face sunscreen applied over my serum and moisturizer as the final step before makeup primer. It just felt like a lot of steps. When I saw this serum from LaRoche Posay, I decided to try it, even though it is pricey. Well - I love it! I have normal skin (not dry, not oily) and put this serum on after cleansing my face. It is moisturizing (not oily) so I really don't need one on top of it. And I get the benefits of the peptides and anti-aging ingredients. I just use my eye cream and this serum and I'm ready for makeup primer! It doesn't "pill" or turn you white. I will say that if you plan to put moisturizer on top, you need to wait 3-5 minutes for the serum to fully absorb or you will be removing some of the serum. I made the mistake the first time I used it, and my skin felt "tacky" and too "wet" all day. I guess if you have very dry skin and need a heavy moisturizer, this may not be for you. I love it and on days when I wear makeup, it is perfect.
Most Helpful Critical Review If you don't have an ingredient allergy, this is pretty good
I realized after using this product that I am allergic to oxybenzone. I was intrigued by this sunscreen because it's a serum formulation. I have oily skin and while this doesn't have the watery texture I'm accustomed to, it still rubbed in well and dried down. I was able to layer this easily with my other skincare. I was able to use this for almost two weeks before my skin really began to break out due to the allergy. During that time, I noticed the pigments in my skin cleared up nicely.

Great product! It goes on lightly and rubs in, giving my skin a nice glow. I really like this sunscreen and I am picky.
Antioxidant Sunscreen Serum
ShoeGirl from Texas
Hands down one of my top 3 products of all time! I have used NUMEROUS skin care lines, products - you name it. I can't begin to even think about how much money I have spent on skin care over the last 30 years. This product is AMAZING! I believe in daily sunscreen and as a fair skinned person, struggled to find one that was not greasy, lasted all day and worked well under my makeup, but had to be SPF 50. I want total sun block for my face. This serum is wonderful - it meets all of those requirements and my skin has improved since I started using it (more of a youthful, dewy glow). I am in love! As a Nurse, I cannot stress enough how important sunscreen is in preserving a youthful countenance and in helping to prevent skin cancers. This product is outstanding!!!!!

Very light weight and easy to wear moisturizer with good spf
Hands down, the BEST sunscreen
Debbie from IL
This is by far the best sunscreen I have tried. I sinks into your skin quickly, it doesn't burn my eyes, it does not leave a white cast and is very moisturizing. The only downfall is the price.

Good but leaves my skin shiny. I prefer a matte finish.
Thin and no change in my skin
anonymous from Nashville TN
Didn't like the feel of this product, thin ! Didn't see much change in my skin after using all the product. I like their other products better
lmhealy from Portland, OR
This sunscreen serum is the best. It glides on nice and smooth without a white cast. Then, after a few minutes to let it soak in, my skin is like matte velvet. Gorgeous.
Lisa from Kawkawlin, MI
Love this antioxidant serum!! I have oily skin normally and this goes on smooth and soaks in so nice. Does not feel greasy at all and stays on all day.

This is a lovely sunscreen, light but covers thoroughly and the antioxidants are a great boost.
Great for sensitive skin.

I have very sensitive Skin. I recently received a sample of Elta sunscreen and it burned my skin. Anthelios AOX Antioxidant Serum with SPF 50 Sunscreen does not burn my skin.
NOT Reef Safe
Kmills from Texas
This product contains oxybenzone, a harmful ingredient linked with coral bleaching. This product was advertised to me as "reef safe" and it is very much not safe for the environment.
please never stop making this LRP!!

The skincare experts all say to wear sunscreen on your face, especially if you're investing in anti aging products and/or procedures (which I am, including a retinol). It felt like I researched forever which sunscreen to buy. Physical sunscreens make my foundation pill up really bad and feel pore clogging. Chemical ones tend to feel greasy and burn my eyes. But after scouring reviews and YT vids, I chose this stuff. It can burn my eyes but it's very minor, not enough to detract me from using it. Absorbs quickly. Doesn't interfere with makeup application. All in all, extremely glad I bought this stuff even though it's a bit pricey for my usual budget. I'll continue happily buying so long as it's available!
So silky & light!

This is a great sunscreen, so silky & light!
Also use the light fluid sunscreen, but this is my favorite.
anonymous from New York, NY
All around easy product, love the combo formula of antioxidants and spf, my skin has adapted well. I usually layer this on after toning and lighter serums before applying moisturizer/oil and it's been working well for me. I usually apply a different spf on top for added protection. Packaging is great. Dispenses cleanly. Only con would be with all La Roche Posay products where I wish they used more natural ingredients.
Diana Sunscreen from CA
Awesome product that does not make my face greesy and does not cause acne

Stings my eyes after a few hours and I need to wash it off. It seems to be a good sunblock, and is a nice texture under makeup, I have not noticed any anti aging benefits.
Skin Feels Great and Radiant
Pam247 from San Francisco, CA
I decided to try this out because I wanted a sunscreen that would help my skin- sort of a 2 in 1. I am very happy I did! I did not have a reaction which is great because I have very sensitive dry skin. It blends in well, it doesn't leave a white veil over my skin, and yes there is a shine to it but I love it because it makes me look radiant! I have been using this with the Redermic C dry skin cream and eye cream and it feels great!
My rosacea love it!!
Cami from North Dakota
I have rosacea and ultra sensitive skin, so I got to protect it from sun and this is the highest factor on La Roche(the only brand that I use for skincare cause I feel safe it never breaks me out) the texture is way better than a regular sunscreen and I use it after the toleriane ultra repair moisturizer.. I love it!
My Go-To for SPF Protection
mandms4evr from Texas
I have been using this product for a few years. I love it! My skin is sensitive and this product does not give me any problems. I use this every day and feel good knowing it is SPF 50. The reason I gave it 4 stars is the packaging. One problem is you don't know it's empty until you try to pump it and no more comes out. Secondly there's no way you can ever get all the product out. Despite the packaging issues I still think the product itself is great.
J from Chicago
I use this daily under my makeup and it is moisturizing, not heavy, no white cast, and soaks in skin beautifully. It does a great job of protecting my skin from the sun. It is pricy, but worth every penny.
Brooklyn from Brooklyn, NY

Mallo from Nashville
I've been using this for years. Zero cast, non greasy, and doesn't sting around the eyes. Great product for daily use.
