The product

When it comes to skin care staples there’s no denying sunscreen is a must. But when traditional, occlusive formulas leave you looking greasy and with a white cast, you can’t be blamed for skipping the step in lieu of a perfected foundation finish.

But now you don’t have to make that chaotic choice, because La Roche-Posay has an invisible serum-like sunscreen that won’t disrupt your beat or leave you looking a rather whiter shade of pale.

Introducing: La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF 50+. An ultra-light, non-shiny, non-greasy, invisible finish sunscreen that’s dermatologically tested for sensitive skin and won’t sting your eyes.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this invisible sunscreen to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF50+ to a panel of women aged 25-44 with normal to combination skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF50+.

The lightweight, invisible finish: Reviewers were thoroughly impressed by the lightweight, invisible finish of the sunscreen, saying it was a refreshing change from traditional occlusive sunscreen formulas that left them with a white cast. 

How it wore under makeup: Our members really liked how the sunscreen absorbed quickly into skin, ensuring they were able to easily apply their makeup over the top without worrying about moving the product around their face or pilling.

The serum texture: A number of our members highlighted the unusual but refreshing serum texture of the sunscreen, which allowed them to apply a thin, fast-absorbing layer that “glides on so smoothly… and leaves my skin looking fresh,” according to one reviewer.

The verdict

“Love love love this product! Glides on so smoothly, sits well under makeup, and leaves my skin looking fresh with no white cast. I enjoyed that there was no strong scent, and the fluidity made it feel almost serum like. Would defs re-purchase!”

“La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF50+ is great. It's lightweight and non greasy. It absorbs easily and fast into your skin without leaving any sticky residue. It works great under make up. It's effective as a sunscreen, my skin feels protected from the sun and it doesn't irritate my skin.”

“With the warmer weather, I’m looking forward to going out more and now that I’ve found a sunscreen that is so light and doesn’t leave my face oily, I can use this as my everyday sunscreen. It feels so nice on my skin, doesn’t make my face irritated, and gets absorbed within a few seconds, which means I can just apply this underneath my make up. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a reliable and effective sunscreen, that is almost as effortless to have on as it is to apply.”
