Holy Grail SPF
For a person of colour with darker skin I am really impressed at the tint on this SPF. It isn't too light, or too dark and soaks into the skin really nicely. This is a watery sunscreen, with a beautiful texture and dries satin-matte on the skin with NO white cast. It offers very high level UVA and UVB protection and has some of the new SPF filters as well so you know you're getting pretty good protection for a drug store product.

Lovely facial sunscreen with a subtle tint!
I love La Roche Posay products, so I knew this would be a great product straight away! The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+, combines my two favourite products; 1. SPF Sunscreen and 2. Tinted Moisturiser. The combination = the perfect face sunscreen for summer! The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+ is light weight, non-greasy and doesn't leave your face looking sweaty or shiny. The product has a subtle to it, which I absolutely love! (I hate when facial sunscreens leave your face looking whiter than your body - this product does NOT do that). It makes me feel a little more confident going to the beach bare faced, as it gives me a slight tint that brightens my face (without it looking like I am wearing foundation). I love that the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+ has such a high SPF, as it keeps my mind at ease knowing that mt face is protected against UVA and also UVB rays.
The formula is runny/ a little watery - so it is important to shake the bottle well before use. It's really easy to apply and absorbs well into the skin. This has become a summer staple of mine, and it will remain in my beach bag all summer long! I highly recommend to anyone who is looking to try a new facial Sunscreen who also wants a little bit of a tint at the same time.
Great everyday sunscreen!
I found this to be a super lightweight sunscreen that absorbed easily into my skin. The tint seemed nice and subtle with my light olive completion and meant it never had a white layer. I also found that it gave me a nice dewy look and never left me feeling oily. This is essentially as I do have oily skin! I also re-applied during the day and it never felt like I was layering on too many products.
It is a watery consistency vs other sunscreens I have used so something to watch out for if you like applying sunscreen to the back of your hand first!
Great for sensitive skin
The La Roche-posay Anthelios tinted fluid facial sunscreen is now a staple in my handbag. I do have sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts but this product has been amazing and not caused any unwanted pimples when I have used it. The product itself did surprise me in it's consistency as it is a little bit runny but this just means you don't need to use a lot each time you apply. This product also being 50+ provides great protection from the hot aussie sun and not once did i burn when i had it on. All in all this is something I would purchase again and also would continue using. It is so hard to find facial sunscreens that agree with my skin so this is something I would buy once I have finished this product.
Hint of tint!
This suncrrens watery textures made it easy to dispense and left no white cast- definitely due to the tint. I loved that it was small and compact to throw into my hand bag for reapplication later I the day. The product was a life saver in the warmer days and performed well under makeup or just as a daily SPF for around the house. I liked that it had a little shaker inside the bottle which gave me confidence in that the product was being mixed properly prior to use. I know all sunscreens come in a plastic bottle, however I do wish there was some indication of how much is left so I know when I will have to repurchase. This is my daily facial sunscreen now and I can't go without!
Lightweight and easy to use, but only okay
This product is very lightweight and easy to use, but I did not enjoy using it due to its strong floral fragrance and very silky/oily texture. I know fragrance and texture are very subjective, so people with less of an aversion to heavy scents or very silky liquids may enjoy the product more than I did. Fortunately the fragrance dissipates quickly, but considering my skin’s usual sensitivity to fragrance, the strong scent made me nervous each time I used the product.
The size of the container is very handy, as it fits easily in my handbag, and the addition of the shaker ball means the product is well mixed with very little effort, resulting in even application every time. I found the tint of the product to be minimal once applied to the skin, but it is a bit alarming to see such a peachy-pink colour coming out of the container.
Overall, I would hesitate to recommend this product, as I am not certain the fragrance won’t impact those usually sensitive to it, and I believe the texture would not sit well on certain skin types.
As a sunscreen it is fine and does the job and the convenience of the container is a huge plus, but I think there are other options out there that may better suit us fussy, sensitive-skinned people.
Good addition to my daily skincare
This little bottle is a new necessity for me. The tint is not obvious and not very pigmented, so don't expect to rely on it for an all over coverage and cover up of big blemishes, however did provide a nice was of colour and would most likely help to subdue any redness on the face. I did however, find it to be perfect under makeup. I love to get sun protection under my makeup and found this to provide a great base. I find with other sunscreens my makeup can be quite shiny and almost rub/wipe off by the end of the day. Whilst it wasn't matte, it did provide a smooth and nice base- without the greasiness that usually comes throughout the day.
The fluid is not thick like most other sunscreens (especially tinted ones I have used in the past) and I liked this as I found it easier to estimate the required amount to provide enough protection (usually a teaspoon). The shaker and little pour out bottle was also something that I was unsure of at first, but found it to perform perfectly and be super handy to chuck it into my hand bag if necessary.
Thanks BC and LRP!
Great sunscreen - poor tint
The sunscreen was light and matte - as it said. Not a fan of the packaging, you don't have control of it and doesn't help to have the sunscreen so liquidy.
I am very pale - red hair pale - and I couldn't see the tint on my face. It is not a replacement for a bb-cream or the likes. It was nice on my face though.
Would probably just buy the sunscreen without the tint if I wanted it again.
I would prefer to have more tint. It would not be something you could wear on your own. It left marks though if I used a tissue and blew my nose etc. So it was there just not providing any coverage.
The sunscreen is okay. This sunscreen is not for you if you're skin or your nose is sensitive to fragrance. The fragrance is strong but dissipates. I don't mind the fragrance. Normally sunscreen has a scent so this sunscreen is for those who don't want to smell like sunscreen this is for you.
The texture of the sunscreen is alright but the colour is not right for my skin tone. As my undertone is yellow and this made me look more yellow.
The size of the sunscreen is good as you can throw it in your handbag without weighing down your handbag. Making reapplying sunscreen easy as you have it in your handbag. I like it's SPF 50+ as Australia is a sun-kissed country and I need all the sun protection.
Pretty good addition to my daily routine
I quite liked this product which I was provided with to review. I found it light and absorbent and nice to wear under my makeup as a part of my skincare routine. Because of the light tint it was nice to wear on it's own however I need need to be careful it didn't look patchy. I like that there is no white cast on it. My mum also tried it and even though her skin is more tanned than mine, it still worked well. She has sensitive skin and really liked the dew it gave her skin I would maintain this product as a part of my routine.
No-fuss Summer Staple
I trust La-Roche Posay with suncare and my sensitive skin so was very excited to try this tinted fluid facial sunscreen which combines colour coverage as well. My go-to makeup product is usually a bb or cc cream which does not generally have a high SPF rating.
The product fragrance is quite strong, so I would note that if you do not particularly like fragrances - this did not affect my experience and i would say most of my products are fragrance free which is why I probably noticed this first off.
I shook the product vigorously and found it easy to apply! The colour is all OK for my complexion, I suffer from redness and found that my skin tone was evened out by the product.
Reliable, easy to use and no-fuss product that will be a staple for me over Summer!
Great sunscreen, Shame about the shade range.
I was a fan of the older version of this sunscreen, but this new formulation wins hands down. The old formula used to ball if you rubbed too much when applying, there is no such issue with this baby.
This sunscreen is lightweight, has a gentle scent and doesn't feel heavy on the skin or make me ridiculously oily.
My only problem with this tinted formula is that I am quite pale, so its way too dark for me unless I either apply fake tan or after a while in the warmer months. When its the right shade though it is amazing. I wear it as a base with a bit of concealer and powder and my skin looks flawless and glowy and like my skin is naturally that great.
My biggest concern is that there is an invisible formula for when I'm paler but does this one shade also work on people with a darker complexion?
Yes, I would recommend this product to friends, however warn them about the issues surrounding the shade.
Excellent everyday protection
I really liked this product! 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. I would also note that whilst it’s appropriate for everyday use, it’s not the best product if you are planning on being outside/sweating for an extended amount of time as it does not have a great deal of water resistance.
Ok, but not the greatest
I have been using the LRP SPF50+ BB cream for several months and was excited to try this new formula. The formula is very fluid and light and spreads easily and sinks into the skin quickly, However, I found I had to use a lot more product than I would with the BB cream to get full coverage of my face and found that the tint could be patchy in places. I ended up using a very small amount at a time to ensure I got proper coverage of my face with the product.
The ball inside the package is great to make sure the formula is mixed thoroughly before application. I also think the shape and size of the product is really great to slip in to your bag and reapply throughout the day. I probably wouldn't use this as my initial daily SPF going forward but have been keeping it in my bag/beach bag to reapply to my face throughout the day.
Wasn’t The Product For Me
As someone who generally doesn’t like putting on normal sunscreen because of the feeling and smell I thought this would be a great alternative. I loved the scent, it didn’t feel heavy on my skin and the tint gave my skin a bit of extra life. However, it’s difficult to determine whether or not it did it’s intended job and protected me from the sun. I also used this after my skincare routine and before I put makeup on. My makeup did go on effortlessly but I did have one major issue. My foundation and concealer wouldn’t stick to my nose. I have an oily t-zone and dry in the other areas of my face which would explain why this happened. The skin on my nose is also very red so it was extremely noticeable. The solution would be not to put the sunscreen on my nose but I feels as if that defeats the purpose as your nose is most likely to be affected by the sun. Also, the size of the bottle is quite small so I feel like you wouldn’t get much use out of it if you were intending it for full sun protection. The product itself is also difficult to control with it being so fluid so make sure you’re ready to work fast if you are using it.
Worked for my very pale, sunburn-prone skin !
I was very impressed with the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen. As I have very pale skin, I tend to burn easily and so I generally wear a face sunscreen daily. I have tried so many different types of facial sunscreens and my main concern is that after applying my face looks oily.
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. The colour clumped around my jawline and chin after applying but this was easy enough to rub in. The sunscreen did make my skin look slightly oily but was not too noticeable. The Anthelios facial sunscreen also stayed on very well during the day and didn’t sweat into my eyes whilst exercising which was a positive.
I believe the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Fluid Facial Sunscreen is great for those who typically spend more time outdoors and are looking for a higher SPF facial sunscreen which won’t sweat into their eyes.
New favourite sunscreen
I’ve absolutely loved using this product! It’s true to form in its lightweight and non-shiny finish!! Most sunscreens leave your skin feeling pale and oily but I loved how this products tinted formula left me with a smooth, slightly sun kissed complexion. Above all my favourite thing about this sunscreen is it’s smell!! It is SO rare to find a sunscreen that smells nice and applies with a matte finish! The only downfall to this product would be its bottle as even the slightest squeeze can result in lots of product. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this sunscreen!
My very very favourite
This is the holy grail of my skincare regime!
I have struggled for years with dry skin and adding this as a layer over my serum and moisturiser has kept my skin glowy and moisturised all day.
It’s a lightweight, thin cream which seamlessly glides on the skin - I love the cute bottle with easy pouring capabilities.
For makeup free days this gives a protective light tint and lasts all day for a healthy glow. I find that my skin improves so much around the clock when I have been wearing this with no make up!
I will buy this for as long as La Roche make it!
Perfect for work in the harsh sun
I really liked this sunscreen. I work on a construction site in North Queensland so having adequate skin protection is really important for me. At first I was concerned with the colour but because the product is quite thin it goes on easily and becomes sheer, matching my skin tone. I like that the consistency of the product isn’t thick and greasy like a lot of other sunscreens. My only criticism is that as the consistency is thin it tends to come out of the bottle quite easily so be careful when getting it out.
High protection sunscreen
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.
This product does need to be shaken before use and some caution needs to be taken when opening to avoid spillage given its light, thin consistency.
On the downside, as I’m quite fair the tint was too dark for me and actually made me look a little orange. Would be great if it came in lighter shade options.
