Skin Care Review: La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Fluide Extreme 50+

by Jessica, Washington, DC, USA


a lightweight formula; PPD of 28; offers great everyday high spf protection

does not absorb easily even on a bare face; is NOT non-greasy "dry formulation"

I have used this sunscreen for daily protection for about two years now. It offers great protection, and everyone knows Anthelios offers superior UVA protection and photostability. It contains Meroxyl SX and XL can be purchased in Europe and expensively in the U.S., though I have found it worthwhile obviously! It is a very light formula, and for those that are uncomfortable with that and want a more veritable layer of protection, this may not be the product for you. But it is a very good sunscreen. Cosmetically, I have come to prefer the Anthelios XL Lait spf 50+. It absorbs more easily and leaves less of a whitish cast. Plus the protection is superior, with an IPD of 90 and a PPD of 28 - considered by some the best sunscreen in the world! I have since switched to using this, but the Fluide Extreme is definately a formulation that will work better for others' daily routine than my own. Great protection and great formulation!

Love the protection - applied in correct quanties leaves whitish cast.
