La Roche-Posay Skincare

I decided it was time to increase my SPF in my skin care. I have fair, freckled skin so need to protect my skin as much as I can. My foundation has SPF 15 but I wanted to add in something more.

I had heard about the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Anti Shine Mist and liked the sound of it.

Traditional sun creams, even the face specific ones, make me sweat it’s like they stop my skin from breathing so I have always stopped using them. They also don’t sit well under make-up. They can cause it to breakdown and separate so not a good look!

This mist is SPF 50 and you spray it onto your face for 3 seconds. I cannot believe how lightweight this is. It feels like no product is coming out of the can. Its like you’re just spraying air onto your face.

I don’t sweat with this on and it has no effect on my makeup at all. I apply this after my moisturiser, before my foundation and my make-up goes on fine. You can also spray this on top of your makeup because it’s so lightweight.

I am so impressed with this – I love it and I can relax now, knowing my skin is protected from the sun.

I purchased this from Boots and they had a 3 for 2 offer on La Roche Posay. So I picked up a couple of other items.

This is the Hydraphase Intense Moisturiser.

This is quite a thick, heavy cream so you only need a small amount to cover your face and neck. It’s nice to apply and sinks straight into your skin. This is SPF 20 and has a very light, fresh fragrance. I do really like this moisturiser and it has not reacted to my sensitive skin so I will definitely re-purchase this.

I got the Hydraphase Intense Yeux eye cream as my free item. I use eye creams / gels every day and find they really helps minimise fine lines.

This is a cooling gel but it’s very hydrating and not drying like some gels can be. It contains hylauronic acid which I love. I always notice a difference in my skin when I use products that contain acids.

This is specifically formulated for sensitive skin so my skin loves it. It’s lovely to apply and has the same, fresh, light fragrance as the moisturiser.

These are the first products I have tried from La Roche Posay and I am really impressed. I will definitely try more. Has anyone got any recommendations for what I should try next from this brand?

Thanks for reading

  1. I love La Roche Posay and as a person with acneic skin, I always buy bottles of Serozinc for summer. From what I tried, besides Anthelios range I also loved their Hydraphase Intense mask.
