It’s 2021 and sunscreen is shine-free now. Because let’s be honest, who has the time to faff about with slow-drying, sticky formulas that leave your makeup looking less than desirable? Not us and no more.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+ is a lightweight sunscreen with SPF 50+ sun protection and a mattifying finish. Specifically formulated for oily and combination skin types, this hard worker is packing a quick-dry finish as well as a perspiration, sebum and oil absorbing magic ingredient called Airlicium.
Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this dry-touch sunscreen to the test.
Beauty Crew sent La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+ to a panel of women aged 25 to 44 with oily to acne-prone and combination skin, as well as those with a proclivity for skin sensitivity.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+.
The non-sticky, shine-free finish: Our members really liked the sunscreen’s departure from sticky, greasy traditional formulas. Many said the fast-absorbing sunscreen dried down easily, and allowed for immediate, streak-free makeup application.
Sweat and water-resistant: Those of our members with an affinity for exercise loved that they didn’t have to worry about the sunscreen starting to move, no matter how much they sweated. And the same went for the beach where reviewers experienced a sun-protected swim sesh without having to worry about the dreaded sting of sunscreen in the eyes.
An effective sun-protection option: A few of our members noted a difference in sun protection, saying they’d worn the sunscreen on their face whilst opting for other body sunscreen offerings for their limbs and experienced sunburn or redness on the areas where a traditional formula was applied, while this hardworking anti-shine offering kept them protected.
