Added to my daily routine
I have really pale, sensitive skin. So much so, I avoid the sun and outdoors like the plague. I haven't realised how much I have much I am missing out on til last weekend.
I went to hiking and swimming at Cedar Creek, I hit the golf ball around with the dogs outside and even decorated the plant out the front with Christmas decorations.
The only way I could of done all of this was with some good working sunscreen. Thank God I was given this product to try! Honestly!! Not only is it fantastic, and sun safe, it's not greasy or oily and definitely has no rank smell.
Its' super easy to apply with the spray and the pump doesn't get clogged which is great.
The spray area is wide and consistent.
I would definitely recommend to anyone who hasn't tried sunscreen in a while, or anyone who is looking for an easier application.
I'm going to be adding this one to my daily routine!
Good, but there are nicer sunscreens out there
I really liked the cool feeling of this product, on the hot summer days it is super refreshing and helps to encourage you to apply your sunscreen. I also liked that the spray helped me to reach harder to reach areas like the backs of my shoulders if I was by myself. Some issues I found, there was a white caste that I don’t usually find with their other sunscreens and being a spray it’s really hard to know if you’re using enough to get the true 50+ coverage. The smell wasn’t too weird or too sweetly scented which was nice and it gave a nice satin look to the skin, not too dewey. Another issue I had is I found it stained my black swimming costumes white and came off in the pool water as soon as I entered so I didn’t feel protected while swimming.
Great everyday addition
This is a great product for everyday sun protection, and I’ll definitely add it to my summer collection of sun protection. The spray formula makes it super simple to apply, and the lightweight texture means you are not left feeling too greasy. There is also no over the top fragrance, which makes it great for sensitive skin. I’d recommend this product for everyday wear, when you’re outside on walks but aren’t planning on swimming or sweating too much - for that you might require something a little more heavy duty in terms of water resistance.
Good everyday sunscreen
Applies well, absorbs nicely with no white marks. Feels incredibly light to wear. Doesn’t feel sticky or greasy on the skin, and when worn to the beach sand doesn’t stick to you. The smell is nice and fresh, and there’s a good amount of product in the bottle. I didn’t get burnt, so I consider this one a success! I’ll be putting this into my everyday sunscreen rotation. I haven’t tested it for a long time in the sun, so unsure how long it lasts, or how well it applies. I also noted it washed off quite well in the shower, you don’t feel like you e got residue left over at the end of the day.
No white marks!
I have been trying many different sunscreens and recently was on the market for spray sunscreen that does exactly that. I like that it almost has a light mist and does not squirt a whole heap in one spot. At first it was a little sticky on the skin but it seems to change when you wait a few minutes after applying. I personally like being able to feel a barrier on my skin so was happy that you still have that protected feel that is not casper thick. Scent is light and did not dry out my skin. I am forever leaving suncream marks from my other sunscreens but after testing this out against black clothing and inside car doors, I was pleased to get no white mark complaints! I would recommend if you sun conscious like me :)
The perfect sunscreen!
Having this sunscreen to trial, could not have come at a better time to really put it to the test. I happened to be out in the sun, around a pool during a severe heat wave for several days. Quite honestly, this La Roche-Posay sunscreen was incredible. As someone with extremely fair skin, sunscreen is not optional in summer.
Other sunscreen products I have used in the past have been thick, greasy, unpleasant smelling, leave weird residue on my skin, make me look even paler than I am, etc. This product is NOTHING like that. Super easy to apply, fully absorbs, not sticky or greasy at all, thin fluid consistency, smells really nice (reminds me a bit of an Elizabeth Arden perfume), the scent dissipates after application, it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, moisturisers and to top it all off, it works!
The spray applicator is really nice, although I have just been spraying it on in splotches, then rubbing it in with my hands, so I wouldn’t mind at all if it came in a bottle with a dropper or a pump instead. The packaging is really sleek, and I love that the fragrance is hypoallergenic. I think it’s safe to say that I have found this product to be perfect in every way, and I recommend this sunscreen to anyone. Five stars is not enough!
Effective sunscreen annoying application
I'm a big fan of La Roche-Posay and use alot of their products regularly. I have super pale skin and also use retinoids / get laser treatments so I am no stranger to Spf. I have been warned against using spray sunscreens solely by my dermatologist as alot more is needed to be used to get the correct cover. Keeping this in mind I made sure to apply plenty then rubbing it all in, however this made the task of spraying again rather difficult with slippery hands and impossible to press the nozzle back down.
I did find the sunscreen effective and didn't get burnt at all whilst out camping in 35+ Heat. I will keep this one as a back up as it is easy to throw in a beach bag etc and will continue to use this sunscreen until it has run out. I wouldn't repurchase however I would purchase the plain nozzle type sunscreen in the same range.
Fantastic for sensitive skin
Very lightweight sunscreen. A little fragranced, still smells like a normal sunscreen though.
Easy to use- easy for kids to use, just spray and rub it in.
It does sting if you get it in your eyes (but i have found that with most sunscreens)
I havent had a reaction to it which is awesome (sensitive,dry, eczema prone skin)
The only reason i didnt give 5 stars is the pump only dispenses a little at a time and when you're trying to cover a couple of little ones and yourself- you end up wanting to take the lid off and start pouring!
Wonderful Sun Protection
I received "La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Body Spray Sunscreen SPF 50+" as a trial. I just love La Roche-Posay products, never disappoints, always works. This is a spray-on sunscreen that contains antioxidants that boost protection against sun and environmental damage. This product absolutely delivers!
It comes in a big 200ml bottle, very economical. The pump sprays the liquid sunscreen evenly. It has a nice scent, absorbs quickly, no white pasty residue at all, and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It is SPF50, very high sun protection, exactly what I need. I live on a farm, protecting my skin from sun damage is what I must do on a daily basis. Its a spray-on, very convenient for me, just a few sprays here and there, and I know I am fully protected, it's just a wonderful product. I am totally in love with this product. My skin is very sensitive, another plus for this product is that it does not irritate my skin, my skin feels good when I use it, I love that.
I would recommend this product to anyone that needs high sun protection.
Lightweight & Non-Greasy
Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Spray Sunscreen SPF50+ is lightweight, non-greasy and comes in an easy-to-use pump format.
I was so glad to see that it was fragrance free, made for sensitive skin and suitable for the face and body, but I just used it for my arms and legs.
I did notice a slight white cast on my skin, but I'm quite pale anyway, so it wasn't too noticeable.
Overall, I really enjoyed using this product, and would definitely consider purchasing in future. It provides you with everything that a good sunscreen should do and more.
SPF 50+ protection for sensitive skin
I have sensitive skin, often prone to allergies so I am very careful of the products I use on my body. This sunscreen doesn't irritate my skin which is always appreciated.
It comes in an easy to use, durable spray bottle. The sunscreen itself is a lovely, light consistency which is very easily absorbed. It didn't leave my skin feeling sticky or oily like most sunscreens on the market. I reapplied a couple of times during the day, as I was in and out of the water ,and my skin always felt protected with SPF 50+.
I really love this sunscreen as I do all La Roche-Posay products and will happily repurchase.
I loved this sunscreen spray! I found the spray applicator genius - just spray on your body and rub in! You don’t get sunscreen stuck inbetween your fingers like you do with pump sunscreen. Although as a word of warning, apply over grass/sand, otherwise you’ll make the same mistake I did the first time and have to clean sunscreen off your floor boards.
The sunscreen itself is lightweight and non/-greasy, and definitely has a superior texture to cheaper sunscreens. I enjoyed it on the 39 degree day we had here in Adelaide, because it didn’t make me feel ‘clammy’ in the way that other sunscreens can. It was also super easy to reapply after a dip in the ocean, and I’ve even used the cheeky ‘rub your limbs together’ to rub in the sunscreen to good effect when I wanted to keep my hands clean for watermelon.
Overall it has a good applicator, a good texture, and I didn’t burn - loved it!
Light and good for sensitive skin
I have used the La Roche Posay line of sun care for many years now and this product used on the body with the Anthelios Invisible Fluid for the face is the perfect pair for sun protection. It's light and has minimal fragrance and I've experienced no issues on my sensitive/dray skin. It is so travel-friendly too - the cap prevents any sunscreen to be accidentally sprayed in your bag and the size makes it super portable. If you're like me and love to lather on your sunscreen, you will have to spray multiple times on each limb to get adequate coverage. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for quick application of sun protection on the body.
Another wonderful product from La Roche - Posay
For someone with a very sensitive and reactive skin who is very picky about sunscreen, getting hold of a product like this was a real score!
Firstly, I Iove the convenience of spray sunscreen - it makes it easier to get to those hard -to-reach areas and to apply just how much is necessary. This product sprays on nicely; is not “ watery and runny” like some other ones that I’ve used and it doesn’t have a strong fragrance. It has a dry finish and absorbs instantly. I did, however, need to wash my hands after rubbing it in, as it felt somewhat sticky , and that was the only downside.
It did not feel sticky on other areas I applied it on.
Secondly, I loved how my skin had no reaction and no breakouts following the application. After testing it first on my shoulders and back ( my problem areas) for two days , I tried it on my face, with same success. It is so lightweight you cannot tell you’re wearing SPF50+ ! My skin stayed nice and dry throughout the day; there was no greasy feeling . And most importantly, it offers excellent protection .
I was so happy with the product that I decided to try it on my two-year old son’s skin who suffers from eczema and finding a suitable sunscreen for him has been a real challenge.
To my delight, he suffered no redness or dryness, which he used to get from Banana Boat and Cancer Council sunscreens .
To me, La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Body Spray Sunscreen SPF 50+ ticks all the boxes and is now my go-to sunscreen for the whole family!
I actually want to use it.
The texture is so thin, watery even, and the spray is so convenient and mess free. It makes me not feel embarrassed to use sunscreen. The smell is lovely - cucumbery. Not sticky, not greasy, not thick; feels more like a thin body lotion on. I will use this again, and again, and again. I would even feel comfortable wearing it to brunch and other day time events where a thick sunscreen just feels too hot and messy. This is going to be a saviour product for me; finally, I’ll be able to wear body sunscreen regularly. I can’t wait to show my friends and family at the beach this Summer - I know they will just adore it too.
Wow wow wow!! what an amazing product. From someone that suffers with sensitive skin this La Roche-posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Body Spray Sunscreen SPF 50+ is incredibly light on the skin, Leaving silky smooth and un-irritated.
My everyday go to now and I even use it on my face daily giving me a new confidence to wear less makeup “it’s brilliant” can highly recommend this product a top priority product.
Oh and it doesn’t smell like some of the sunscreens out there it’s actually got a lovely smell that even my kids are happy to wear it and not complain, so such a huge win.
Very happy customer :-)
I am so glad I was given the opportunity to trial this product, especially during the heat wave. I have really sensitive skin and luckily this product did not irritate my skin at all. It was very easy to apply, I loved the spray style application of the sunscreen it made it very quick and easy. The sunscreen wasn’t as thick as some other brands of spray sunscreen that I have used and so it didn’t feel heavy on the skin, and absorbed fairly quickly. I am a very pale red head and I usually burn extremely quickly I was not red at all after use although I did still see a small increase in freckles but that is not unusual for my skin at all. Overall I did really like this sunscreen and will definitely repurchase when this bottle is finished.
New go to sunscreen!
I’ve tried numerous products from La Roche-Posay before and they have never disappointed!
This product applied very easily and dried quickly and wasn’t sticky or greasy.
I found it had great sun protection as I used twice in some 35 degree days and didn’t burn, and it was super easy to reapply throughout the day.
I found it easy to apply to both my body and face! Definitely my new go to sunscreen:) would highly recommend to my friends and shared it around at the beach and everyone and everyone loved it!
I have sensitive skin particularly on my neck and this did not aggravate it at all.
The La Roche- Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Body Spray Sunscreen with SPF 50+ exceeded my expectations.
My main concern with suncream for the face is that I don't want to have an obvious layer under my foundation for weekday wear. The suncream truly melts into the skin and doesn't smell at all like a chemical application.
There was no need to rub with vigor or really pack it on. A little bit went a long way.
My husband found it easy to spray on especially at the back of his neck when he went out for spear fishing.
The kids aged 7 and 11 didn't complain either. Considering skin protection is something we need to think about everyday, I would definitely incorporate this product to our family routine.
The perfect sunscreen
This is the perfect sunscreen. I work as a labourer and majority of my job is outside in the sun so good sunscreen is so important to me. This sunscreen is amazing! It doesn’t feel them like most sunscreens and I felt that I could apply it as often as I needed without feeling gross. The smell of this sunscreen doesn’t have the usual sunscreen smell either which is amazing! My skin didn’t feel clogged either. I would definitely purchase this sunscreen and will be recommending it to all of my friends!
