Perfect beach sun screen for all the family

I was gifted this product as part of the review crew panel at the start of December and have been trialing it the past month when I got a chance to get out into the sun between work and general life. I’ve loved using this sunscreen, it’s great for a quick dip in the ocean and needing to reapply as soon as you get out without having to dry yourself with the sandy towel (I’m sure you know what I mean). I find only certain sunscreens work on my skin (I have a normal skin type but some just don’t seem to keep me protected) and I’ve not burnt once since using this sunscreen. I’ve shared it around with friends who all have different skin types and have all asked where I got this since they really like it. With regards to the application it isn’t super thick and rubs in (no white marks) however it does leave me looking a bit shiny - I put it on my arms before lunch one afternoon and found I looked super greasy. Overall I really like this sunscreen - defiantly one for the beach since it’s a wet application and not meant for your everyday day sunscreen. I’ll be heading to the shops to purchase for sure.

New beach staple!

I love everything La Roche-Posay and especially their Anthelios sunscreen so I was stoked that they now have a formulation specifically for those who spend a lot of time in the water and at the beach. I no longer have to worry about reapplying every single time I jump in the water (which can be a lot in summer) and using all my product. This sunscreen is also appropriate for body and face which is great because it mean I'm packing less for the beach, and as someone that goes daily that's super handy. My favourite thing about the Anthelios range, and this product is no different, is that they aren't sticky, the product absorbs straight away and doesn't leave a weird texture on your skin which in turn picks up sand.

Hot summer skin protectant

This is a revolutionary product and a must have for the hot summer to come. I truly felt protected and was at first sceptical about the wet skin application and "technology" but it really works and doesn't leave a greasy residue. It's a nice gel texture rather than a cream and rubs in clear with no white cast. This is a perfect sunscreen for all water activities and anything involving the outdoors. Thanks for introducing this to me as it will be much loved and warrants a repurchase for sure!!

Go to every day sun screen

I received this product as a review crew panelist, just in time for summer. I love this brand and use other products in their line so I knew this would be a hit. The sun screen has a very nice gel like texture and rubs in clear. The fragrance is subtle, I have used it multiple times on myself and my toddler. Seems very suitable and non irritating to sensitive skin. Will be recommending to friends and repurchasing. Best part is you can apply it on wet and it does not leave any white marks. Will be using it all summer as my go to sun screen. The bottle is is also a decent size to carry around with you or leave in the car for on the go.

Best sunscreen and perfect for my summer

I have been using this sunscreen for the past 2 weeks and love it so much. I use it on the daily. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized; but while still applying a good amount of spf. This product is one of the only sunscreens that fully absorbs and doesn't leave me looking like a greasy mess. I hate sunscreens that are greasy or that leave a tacky or oily film on your face, and this does a great job of just sinking into your skin without leaving a trace. I can't feel it once it dries! It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, but not oily. It’s formula is slightly watery, and is very easy to spread across my face and body. It also dries pretty quickly and does not leave a white cast in photos. It just feels smooth to the touch. This is just an overall easy sunscreen to use and love. Perfect to use if you’re sweating, doing sports or going in the water.

The perfect sunscreen for the summer season!

I love La Roche-Posay products, so when reviewing this La Roche-Posay Anthelios Wet Skin SPF50+ Sunscreen I had very high standards - and it did not disappoint! The formula is light-weight, non-greasy and blends into the skin without leaving any trace of a white cast or sticky film. I LOVE that you can apply this sunscreen onto wet-skin! Honestly, I was a little sceptical about applying it to wet skin at first, however it does work, and it works well! It makes re-applying sunscreen at the beach a breeze. I don't know how I ever managed before this wet-skin invention. I love that the product is an SPF 50+ and protects the skin against UVA and also UVB rays - it keeps my mind at ease knowing that my skin is protected. It also comes in a very generous sized tube and the packaging is super cute as well. This product has quickly become a staple in my beach bag this summer season and I will continue to use this product. I will most definitely re-purchase when this tube has run out, and I will be recommending to my friends and family to try!

favourite sunscreens for this hot summer!

The formula for this product has to be one of my favourite for a beach/body sunscreen. The ability to pop it on already wet skin (because let's face it, I swim first and think about sun protection after) and have piece of mind knowing it will still be affective in providing protection against the UV rays makes this product worth every cent. It also makes re-application much simpler, as you're not having to dry off or wait long periods of time in-between. The tube is a perfect size and I love that you can pick it up from Chemist Warehouse, so it's easily accessible. Love that there is little to no noticeable scent as some sunscreens are notorious for their strong smells. I also really liked that it didn't leave me feeling greasy. It's a family friendly and gentle on sensitive skin. Easily one of my favourite outdoor sunscreens for this hot summer!

Amazing non greasy sunscreen that protects.

Love this product!!! I do have sensitive fair skin, so having a good sunscreen is really important to me. I found that he La Roche-Posay wet skin sunscreen has a great consistency and was easily absorbed into my skin without being left to feel oily. I used this most days over the last week with it being so hot and not once did I get burnt or did I feel that I needed to reapply after being in the water (of course I was in and out of the water but it was within the four hour reapplication period recommended for re-application). I also used this on my three year old and it was great especially when she is hard to wrangle after a swim and still had wet skin. The non greasy and non sticky formula really was amazing and I will be re purchasing this once I have used the product I was given

Great product, will definitely repurchase

This product was really easy to use. I liked the squeeze-tube, as it meant that I could control the amount dispensed, unlike the usual bulk-pump-pack sunscreen favoured by most families and beaches. I found it went on really well, and stuck to my skin well without feeling thick or cloying. I liked the formula, as it held well on the skin and I found it did what it promised as a water-resistant formula. It also reapplied really easy to wet skin- I was pleasantly surprised. It was definitely unique, as other sunscreens I’ve used have applied as well to wet, beachy or sandy skin. This worked well on the junior members of the family too, who enjoyed the formula (if this was to come out in a roll-on in the future, that would be perfect, as that tends to be the best way to get the little people interested in applying/reapplying themselves) I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a good midrange sunscreen, that does exactly what I promises on the bottle. I will definitely be repurchasing.

Very underwhelmed

I was really disappointed with this product. I have super fair skin so sunscreen is an essential part of my everyday routine. Don't get me wrong, it did have its' benefits. I really liked that it didn't have the typical overpowering sunscreen smell that you get with so many. Its' fragrance was actually quite pleasant. I also really liked that it didn't feel overly thick or greasy to apply. It had the consistency of a light moisturiser which felt really nice to apply to my skin. The downside for me was that it almost felt like it didn't settle into my skin. It sat on top and just created this shiny layer. I looked like I was incredibly sweaty which is not ideal. I could run my fingers along an applied area and still feel the product moving under my fingers. I also noticed when applying the product on a particularly hot day it developed a crumbly consistency on my skin in areas such as my elbows and the backs of my knees that can become a little sweaty easier. It also made me worry that if it wasn't settling into my skin and was becoming crumbly in certain spots, was it really protecting me efficiently from the sun? I found that most days I was wiping my skin over with a towel and then applying my old faithful sunscreen I use. So won't be buying this one.

Waterproof wonder

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Wet Skin SPF50+ Sunscreen is a high protection solution for keeping moisturized and sunburn-free over long summer days in the sun. The convenience of the great combination of rapid absorption and being able to apply it straight onto wet skin is fantastic!!!! La Roche-Posey have created a wonderful formula that feels more like a moisturiser than a sunscreen, with a luxurious, smooth texture and a nice fresh fragrance . A solid family solution that doesn't irritate sensitive skin. I can't wait to try it out on the whole family this summer!!!!

New fav suncream!!

It went on so smoothly - it wasn't thick and wasn't super thin - the texture was just right!! When applied, it rubbed in beautifully. It was just like applying moisturiser. It was not thick and gluggy like most suncreams. The smell is minimal - the teeniest scent of suncream but hardly noticeable. An hour later, it had no smell at all. It does not feel heavy on your skin - it leaves a slight moisturising layer which is non-offensive. I feel that I am not even wearing suncream! It feels like I have a body cream on. I also applied it to the kids - I don't trust many suncreams for the kids but this brand has my trust and it is now my new must-have!! Thank you so much!! My new must-have at all times!!

Perfect sunscreen for sensitive skin

Fantastic sunscreen for sensitive skin! I was excited to receive this sunscreen as part of a trial as I have sentitive rosacea prone skin and my 12 year old son has eczema. Finding a suitable sunscreen for us both has been very difficult. This product is very similar to the Antithelios Invisible Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF50+. It has a slightly thicker consistency but the same invisible finish, absorbs really well and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy. Most importantly it didn’t cause a rosacea or eczema flare in my family. I will definitely repurchase this product.

Highly Recommend

Love this brand.  Easy to apply. Felt nice on and the best factor is being able to apply on wet skin. No reaction for sensitive skin and was great for my kids too.  Lasted longer than other well known brands.   Great size bottle and only needed a small amount to apply which will last all summer for the whole family. Worth the cost. You pay for what you get. I liked the smell because it wasn't that chemical smell like others. I will definitely be purchasing this in future, my skin agrees with all this brands range and also my kids sensitive skin.

A beach winner

This was very easy to apply both to myself and my toddler. It did feel greasy when it was first applied but that feeling quickly disappeared .No white film or excess showing .toddler was happy with this product as it glided on quickly. I used it at the beach as well to give a second application and it was very easy to do. After the beach day our skin was unharmed and not dry and tight. Quick scrub in the shower and sunscreen all removed. No greasy residue. This will be a firm family favourite as we are a beach going family

Quick drying, easy to use

Very quick drying and easy to apply, the kids love it. We usually put it on before we leave the home and reapply it in the late afternoon. It’s good for outdoor activists like tennis and swimming. It doesn’t really leave a white sheen as much so you can apply it on the face too. Especially heading into summer. Adults can also use it too. I really enjoyed this brand’s other products and this one is a hit too. It comes in a very big tube which will last you all summer, would recommend this product.

Especially great for kids!

I LOVED this sunscreen. My kids have very sensitive skin and usually get covered in a rash from any chemical based sunscreen but they didn't react at all with this one. It glides on smoothly and easily and is absorbed very quickly. Plus there is no yucky smell so getting the kids too wear it isn't a chore. We also didn't have any stinging eyes when using this. I am quite fair skinned and work in the sun every day and not once did I get burnt. I love that it can be applied to wet skin as well because trying to dry kids off before reapplying can be difficult at the best on times. Highly recommend.

Sun protection for the whole family!

La Roche- Posay Anthelios Wet Skin 50+ is a sunscreen that I love! It is a natural finish sunscreen that is not shiny or greasy, and doesn't clog pores. It is just hydrating enough so it can be used in winter too. It does not sting or burn, even when applied around the eyes and eyelids which is a bonus for children! After applying it on wet skin it absorbs quickly feeling like a natural finish. This product applied correctly has protected me from burning my fair skin. I have confidence that it provides good protection on my young children who are fair. This also pairs well with any face products and works fine under makeup. Overall, this has been my favourite sunscreen for my whole family, and after trying many others, this still comes out on top for the whole family.

Great product for kids and sensitive skin.

I was very excited to get la roche-posay sunscreen because I can use this with my child. Been looking for something like this for ages and my daughter and I tried on the body and face and its not greasy or make your skin feel uncomfortable, it absorb pretty quick and feels very moisturised. For my face I used pea size around my face and use foundation or tinted fluid over it and it feels natural and not flaky or oily at all which I'm very happy with. Some of the sunscreen will make your skin oily or dry later on but it didn't happened so I highly recommend this product. Also my hubs face always get some reactions from sunscreen or burning/sting eyes but with la roche sunscreen it didn't happen so far, so we are very happy. It is family friendly product and it comes in a big tube but I wish they make a smaller size for traveling.

Water resistant

I like that it's a lightweight sunscreen with a high spf of 50+. It has a faint, barely there scent and works into skin quickly and absorbs well. It does show a bit of a white cast which I have to massage into my skin. My skin doesnt feel greasy or sticky with this on which is great as some sunscreens just coat your skin and feel suffocating. With a 4 hour water resistant I was able to be out in the heat sweating, without the worry of reapplying my spf so frequently. The 250 mL squeeze tube is massive and the product will last ages.
