The product

Well, it’s official, it’s summer time and that means an inevitable influx of sun safe products. But as any beauty lover will tell you, there is nothing worse than having to compromise your makeup for a sunscreen that has adequate UVA/UVB protection. 

Luckily, La Roche-Posay has given their beloved lightweight Anthelios formula a makeover, now offering a subtle tint for a light summer-approved sheen.

Introducing La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+, a broad spectrum facial sunscreen with SPF50+ and a tinted fluid texture. The two-in-one formula offers a natural, fast-absorbing, non-greasy and non-shiny summer glow with an invisible, lightweight finish and instant absorption. 

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

The panel

Beauty Crew sent La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+ to a panel of women aged 25 to 44 with normal to combination skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+.

The lightweight finish: Our members loved the fluid formula and lightweight finish of the sunscreen, with many saying they were able to apply it without worrying about unwanted oiliness or their makeup slipping off throughout the day.

The high SPF protection: Reviewers were impressed by the SPF50+ UVA and UVB protection that the sunscreen provided and as such, they felt confident applying the sunscreen in a variety of scenarios including long days spent outside.

The skin-perfecting tint: Review Crew® members were surprised by just how easily they were able to blend the tinted formula with their complexion, without worrying about patchiness or an unwanted orange tinge.

The verdict

“Many 50 SPF sunscreens are thick and difficult to spread. Not this one. This 50 SPF is a wonderful light fluid making it easy to apply on the face and it absorbs well. It’s not an entirely matte finish, more on the dewy side but certainly no shine or oiliness. I have sensitive skin and found it did not irritate at all. Provides great protection.”

“The Anthelios sunscreen applied nicely as it is a thin, runny texture. It also matched and didn’t look too dark on my very pale skin which I was pleasantly surprised about, as most tinted moisturisers I have tried in the past typically look too dark and end up making me look orange… It also stayed on very well during the day and didn’t sweat into my eyes whilst exercising which was a positive.”

“As someone with fair skin who needs a decent SPF everyday, I felt like this was an elegant addition to my sun protection arsenal. It has a lovely, lightweight texture, no irritating fragrance and a nice tint that meant there was minimal white cast left over after application. Sits really well under makeup, but will need powdering as it is not a matte finish.”
