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.

I use this product every morning. Simple steps, cleanse with hydrating cleanser, apply vitamin c, wait a few minutes, apply serum and finally use the double repair moisturizer. No extra steps and my skin is loving it!!!! (Have acne-prone skin)

I've been using this in the morning after I apply my facial oil and moisturizer. It literally sinks into my skin. No pilling.. feels like a serum.. overall I'm loving this! A little pricey.. but worth the splurge!

It tends to give my face a white pallor, once I put a base over it wasn't that noticeable although I don't think I would wear alone.
One of my favorite
sillymcq from undisclosed
One of my favorite SPF for wear under my liquid foundation. Goes on without feeling too thick, and does not ball up when applying my makeup on top. Gives a nice, non white, glow and protects my skin beautifully. My dermatologist fully supports the La Roche-Posay products, double win
Good coverage; overall good product for SPF.
Matthew F from Columbus, Ohio
I have used for about two weeks so far; I would say it is a good product. Giving more time to see if there are any noticeable changes in skin tone/texture. Bought for the antioxidant and SPF properties versus having great expectations for the vitamin C specifically. Overall, I enjoy it. Goes on well and absorbs. No white tint after, so if that is a concern, you won't be disappointed.
Good but not great, shipping sucked
Nahs from undisclosed
It's good but not as good as Paula's Choice mens line. Considering its $10 more than PC and took over 10 days to arrive I doubt I'll be ordering again.

Love that I can start off with a powerful sunscreen while nourishing my skin. As some other reviewers have noted, this does leave a rather shiny finish that's not what those of us who prefer matte want, but even if you're not wearing foundation you can top this with a pore-blurring or other matte moisturizer and voila! Effaclar Mat works well if your skin is not terribly dry.
Worth the Money!!! You won't regret it
Bleu from Brownsville, TX
I got this with my points and a gift card cause I was scared to spend the money and WHOA!!! It's great. Goes on clear and doesn't feel like sunscreen at all. Feels more like a light serum. My skin legit looks like a did a whole routine when all I did was wash and apply this.
second bottle and will repeat using

Robin from Tucson AZ
This is my daily sunblock that I apply, I'm very happy with the smoothness of the product and how well I melts right into the skin. Very comfortable.
La Roche Posay has the worst e-shop

Wonderful facial item

The only sunscreen texture that doesn't make me ma
mishfishy from los ángeles, ca
99% of sunscreens have such a terrible skin feel, but this is the holy grail. It makes my skin so soft and offers a great base for me to put makeup on top of. The texture is very thin and light and does not dry out my skin. It does run out fast for me because I wear it everyday, but it is absolutely worth the price in my opinion.
Best face sunscreen available
Barbara Ann from Granville, Ohio
I've used this serum with sunscreen for three years and it is my favorite. Never greasy, absorbs quickly and easily while protecting against sun damage. Great product!
This surprised me! No

This surprised me! No white cast, makes skin feel very soft. Mixes well with other products and the antioxidants are a major plus. Highly recommend
Great face protection

Best sunscreen that I have use and it's great for people like me with sensitive skin
The best sunscreen for sensitive skin!
Erb37 from Laguna Woods, CA
This sunscreen is the final step of my beauty routine. This mineral sunscreen doesn't smell, feel greasy, and is not visible under makeup. Also, it gives my skin a healthy glow! Plus, it looks nice next to my other favorite beauty products.
Sinks into skin
Ilze MH from undisclosed
This is the most amazing product. My only complaint is that it's in a small plastic tube inside the glass jar and it runs out pretty fast. But it's my favorite!
Karla from Grayson, Georgia
Combined with the vitamin C serum leave my skin so soft and healthy, it works for me. I apply both in the morning after I take a shower and before makeup, I have sensitive skin and none of them irritated my skin! Like the results :-)
Omar from New York, NY
Great Sunscreen serum !!! Doesnt break me out and blends into my skin really well ! Slightly have to rub in extra in the beard area but thats fine. It absorbs pretty quickly and doesn't sting my eyes in this heat. It's pretty moisturizing too !
Feels and smells like sunscreen
Brandy L from Houston
This product feels and smells more like sunscreen that a serum.I would not recommend. I wish I could have sampled first.
lga from little rock
i love this stuff so much! it's really amazing but be careful around the eyes it does burn pretty bad. super light weight! only thing is that it's so expensive. my bottle lasted for a while with daily application (i don't reapply, i know, i know). so i don't mind spending so much on it. my skin also feels super healthy when i use this!
Non-Oily, Perfect Light Feeling Sunscreen + Vita C
Lisatennis from Dallas
I have used this sunscreen for over 4 years. I love how it's 50 SPF, but doesn't feel heavy, greasy, and I can use it under my make up. Even on cloudy days, I like how moisturizing it feels that I use it as my lotion/base before make up. I can't find that many high SPF suncreens that have vitamin C added to the sunscreen (I like products that provide multiple benefits). I play tennis outside and it has protected my skin well. Please never stop making this product!

Everyday use! My sunblock all year long.
