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.

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.

natural from MN
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
very light but it is tint sunscreen that will give enough coverage for summer. and since its a serum.. i wear it under light moisture cream. this is first time trying out the this Brand and very happy with product.
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.
Anthelios AOX antioxidant serum with SPF50
CID 72 from Oregon
I started using this product a month ago. I like how the serum left my skin, the only bad thing was that left my skin oily, and I Have oily skin. At girst I though it was this product, but then I started using this product by itself, without the Substiane cream but still left my skin oily. So I also tried using just the Substiane cream and also left my skin oily..I can't use neither of those products, especially because I have to use makeup almost everyday and my face looked oily with both if this products that I had to blotted and powder my face thru out the day. Maybe it would work for oily skin
Love, love, love
Kelli K. from Indianapolis, IN
I love everything about this product. It has a high SPF with antioxidants and a shield to block free radicals. It goes on silky smooth, so I can wear it under my makeup. Most products clog my pores whether they're noncomedogenic or not. This doesn't. It's a little pricey but well worth it.
Malzy from undisclosed
I usually react to everything but this combined with the Toleriane Sensitive Fluide is a PERFECT base before my makeup! Love love loove La Roche Posay! No bad reactions (which is sadly very rare). Thank you for creating these products you genius's!
I would buy this product again and again because I loved it.
Soski from Rosenberg
I apply a small amount of it in my face an use makeup. I prefer it in the mornings. I recommended it to my friends and some of them are using it as well.
Sunscreen, not serum
harper22320 from Cleveland, Oh
This is a very nice sunscreen that does not burn my eyes and absorbs quickly so I can apply makeup right afterward. It doesn't cause breakouts like most other facial sunscreens I've tried.
However, it's really not a serum. It smells like sunscreen and looks like sunscreen. That's ok, it's a good one, but I probably would have chosen a cheaper option had I known.
SJ31 from CT
I have now been using this product for over a month and love it. Light weight, no breakouts, and makes my skin glow! My forever daily SPF from this point forward. Love it!
Great product, great protection
Hanna R from Santa Clara, CA
Great lightweight sunscreen. I usually get breakouts with face sunscreens, but not this one.
Finally a sunscreen that doesn't make my eyes tear
LuckyEHLady from Long Island, NY
I purchased this several years ago hoping it wouldn't bother my sensitive eyes. It is amazing! My skin is soft and supple, and it is protected from the sun. I love it and hope it is never discontinued. I am 66 and my skin is soft and wrinkle free and my 2 sunspots have faded and no new ones! The serum is light and penetrates quickly without any stickiness. You must try this!!
JessiJ from atlanta ga
I've only been using this product for 3 days and it is very nice. It's only a hair thicker than a serum. It absorbs easily and isn't greasy. The price is a bit much for the quality but people who love it will pay it. Unsure of how it protects from sunburn. I am african american and using for anti aging purposes. I'm satisfied thus far.
MamaLiz from Los Angeles
I bought this in midApril, took almost 3 weeks to arrive. It's not a serum at all. It's a st my cream that does nothing that a serum does. I want to return it. If you're looking for a good serum the B3, B5 serums are amazing.
Isa E from New York
Excellent product!!! everything in one bottle.
Antioxidant serum+SPF 50+anti aging and it leaves my skin soft/moist.
LaBrown from Surprise, AZ
I have been using this for 2 months now and what a difference this and other Laroche products have made a difference in my skin and made my wrinkles disappear! I just moved to Arizona and needed a good face moisturizer and sun block!
