Most Helpful Positive Review nice, thin liquid, easy to apply
I've been testing out sun protection products recently (mineral formulas only) and out of the few I've tried (Juice Beauty Oil Free SPF 30, Juice Beauty Stem CEllular CC w SPF, Stila BB SPF 30), I favor this one.
I don't like thick products that are hard to spread all over my face and this one isn't. It is thin and blends well and is easy to get your hole face covered to get adequate sun protection.
The tint is barely noticable once applied, but does give very minor color correction. Not as much as a tinted moisturizer would though. The color works for me and I'm fair.
I dont notice much of a smell with this product.
I was looking for a better rating on EWG Skin Deep's website, but for a mineral sunscreen that I like I suppose this will do.
There is one other product I did like when I tested in the store, but was too expensive to end up purchasing... Perricone MD Photo Plasma SPF 30. This felt so lightweight on my hand when I applied. If it weren't for the hefty price tag i would have liked to try it. There wasn't an EWG rating for it either, which concerned me.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love it, but not for me.
I really really wanted to like this product because I was looking for a new sunscreen to wear under my makeup. I read reviews saying that this does not leave a white cast, and also that it is mineral. It doesn't make it white, it does have a slight tint--kind of like the sheerest tinted moisturizer you could wear. That's fine, because I wear foundation over it. The smell is unpleasant, but I'm also sensitive to fragrances. It's very liquid-y, not thick at all and goes on well and sinks in. It's definitely NOT a matte finish on my combo skin. Weird smell aside, this just isn't working for me because I find it's really irritating to my sensitive skin--it stings whenever I apply it. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't have sensitive skin and doesn't mind products with strange smells.

One of the best face sunscreen protectors out there. I always prefer the ones with mineral components. I wouldn't expect nothing else than excellent from LaRoche Posay.
Taylor from Texas
I have oily skin but I figured I would give this a try since I like tinted sunscreen but it kind of burned my skin and it didn't seem like there was any tint at all.

I have been using this product for over 6 years now. It's a fabulous,silky smooth coverup that looks natural!!
Not for fair skin
MMeyer from Plano, TX
Great texture, goes on very nice. Sits well on skin however I have fair skin and this looks bright orange on my skin. Would not recommend for light skin.
This is the best
mcarreira from undisclosed
This is the best sunscreen ever. It's so light weight and the tint is beautiful. Sometimes I just add a little concealer and use this as a tinted moisturizer. It makes my skin look and feel great and I love that there is no fragrance. 10/10 recommend!
Junia from Sd
I am fair light and despite this sunscreen is tinted one tone above mine, it's absolutely my favorite product right now. I just went to a trip where I was constantly outside in an almost 100•F, my skin didn't burn even if I didn't reapply. Love the matted finish and how light it feels
The best mineral sunscreen
jespat_sousa from undisclosed
The best mineral sunscreen I know! It dries super fast and matte so it's great for sunny days here in Texas! I definitely would recommend this product
This is my absolute
lifestyleoflauren from undisclosed
This is my absolute favorite tinted sunscreen. For days when my skin is behaving, this leaves me with the perfect sheer tint, and the perfect glow! I have extremely dry and sensitive skin and this work wonders!
D from USA
I'm Asian and have olive, tan skin so this product works great with my skin tone. May be too dark for fair folks or those with darker complexion.
Product blends seamlessly into my skin and leaves a natural glow. I blend the product in with my fingers and usually set my oily areas with a light powder.
Perfect for everyday makeup looks!
La Roche Posay makes the best skincare products
Caroline from Tulsa, OK
I have rosacea and my dermatologist recommended this brand 10 years ago. I love this moisturizer because the tint provides coverage when I have a flare up and goes on evenly. All of their products are good quality.

Top rated by market experts. Will not switch to other brands.
Mineral tinted spf 50
J. Abrams. from undisclosed
Great product! I love the mattifying effect it produces. Not much coverage but it's great as a base for foundation or on its own when running around doing errands. It's so light, not sticky or greasy. It just evens out my skin tone a bit, which is exactly what I wanted. Good product for retinol users.
Should've used it all over
Cancun vacay from Torrance, Ca
I feel the product worked like it should've,..I got a tan still but forgot to reapply, so I got burnt only on the forehead, I wish I put it on my shoulders because I was worse there.
Tint does not blend with my skin tone
Michelle from Los Angeles, CA
I have brown skin (MAC Cosmetics NC45). This sunscreen does leaves a white cast and does takes approximately 15 minutes to set.
Tatiana40 from Chicago
First time trying a mineral sunscreen and love it. I was afraid after reading the comments about the white cast but I'm happy I ignore them. I will definitely try the tinted one too.
Kara from Ky
I love this sunscreen!! I have already repurchased. It does amazingly well under my foundation!!

sofianicolaidis from undisclosed
Anthelios suncreen has been my go to the past 2 years. It's really easy to apply and the tinted gives your skin color and glow. The price is really good for the quality you are getting. Will definitely keep using it
You don't notice it's on. Feels good. Works!
Lake Erie Gal from Lakewood Ohio
Goes on feeling light, clean and just a touch of tint. I'm someone who wears foundation makeup daily - so this sunscreen is not coverage like foundation makeup - which is a plus because you can wear it alone or under makeup. So far no sunburn or breakouts from wearing it all day.
Gave me a rash
JG from CT
Felt a burning sensation and got a bad rash on my face after a few uses.
cin from Ohio
I'm obsessed with this stuff. Only thing that kinda sucks (why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) is I'm pretty pale naturally and this stuff is too dark for me, it makes me look orange. However, I fake tan usually so that issue goes away put I'd say if you're pale stay away from this.
Bob Parisi from Hasbrouck Heights, NJ
Great texture and super protection. Need to have extreme protection, especially for my scalp.
j92243 from El Centro, CA
I've spent hundreds of dollars on sunscreen from the highest end to the lowest and this product is the holy grail and even better it's a mineral sunscreen! Don't buy it. Keeps it in stock for me. I have olive medium tone skin and I use this for no make up day and make up days; it plays well with other products.
