Being as super fair as I am, sunscreen is a big deal, especially with a holiday looming. On past trips abroad I've always just used my regular suncream on my face, and added a tinted moisturiser over the top if my skin needed some coverage, but that's going to be a thing of the past now that I've got the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Dry Touch Gel Cream! This tinted sunscreen with SPF 50+ is designed for the face, and with such a high factor, it's perfect for fellow fair skinned ladies like me!
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Dry Touch Gel Cream* 50ml rrp £16.50
The texture of this is like nothing I've used before; it feels like a cream, but melts in to the skin like a gel, and has just the right amount of colour that blends out nicely with the fingers, much like a tinted moisturiser. It feels comfortable on the skin even though it is slightly thick in consistency, and the colour wears well throughout the day, giving a nice light coverage.
I've been testing this out over the past few weeks when we had a mini heatwave, wearing it both alone, and underneath a full face of make up and my skin didn't burn one bit, even after a few hours out in the heat with no shade and no re-application. In fact I was so impressed with it that I've actually stopped using it so that I can save the rest of the tube to take on my holidays!
I can see this becoming a firm favourite in my beauty regime over the summer months, and can't wait to try out more of the La Roche-Posay sun range. My skin hasn't always agreed with La Roche-Posay skincare in the past but I have always admired the brand, so to find something from their range that my skin is happy with is amazing!
