Is it just me or the weather really doesn't seem to transition completely into summer mode? We're in May but we are still getting the odd rainy day now and then, yet nonetheless, temperatures are going up a notch and the UV index is already getting quite high. This brings me to an important question...are you making sure your skin is adequately protected against the sun?
Apart from our hands, our face is the area that has the highest exposure to the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays, which is why the products in La Roche Posay's Anthelios range have the highest possible protection against the sun's rays.
I have introduced you to Anthelios XL dry touch gel-creams before and now I have the pleasure of introducing a new addition to the range - the Tinted Dry Touch Gel-Cream. I also have the Non-Perfumed version to share with you which is especially suited for sensitive skin types. Moreover, the products now come in a new type of package featuring a very convenient pump! I admit I much prefer this type of packaging over the older ones as it is less messy to take out the product and it enables you to get the right amount of product out. Each product is supplied in a box with an information leaflet inside.
Let's have a look at Anthelios XL Tinted Dry Touch Gel-Cream first. So, like I already said, this is a new product on the market and apart from the 50+ SPF, it features Mexoplex® (a patented photostable filtering system that protects the sensitive skin of our faces against UVA and UVB rays). It contains hypoallergenic perfume and is thus still indicated for sensitive ad sun intolerant skin types. Anthelios XL Tinted Dry Touch Gel-Cream contains no parabens and is non-comedogenic.
What makes this product different from other face sunscreens on the market? First of all, the tint which comes from universal micro-pigments that adapt to every skin tone for a natural look. Secondly, the formula is immediately absorbed for an ultra-dry finish, keeping oily skin at bay. In fact, the product never feels greasy and the complexion looks fresh and luminous.
Next we have the Anthelios XL Non Perfumed Dry Touch Gel-Cream which also features the Mexoplex® technology and SPF 50+ and is also indicated for sensitive and sun intolerant skins. Again, the formula features no parabens and is non-comedogenic and is very water resistant. I am a big fan of this dry touch formula as even though the product is white, it is fast absorbed and leaves no residues on the skin whatsoever and again, it is non-greasy. This one in fact, also receives my boyfriend's seal of approval because of the non-greasy formula and it helps keep his super oily skin in check (this is a big step as my boyfriend hates putting any sort of cream on his skin but he agreed to testing Anthelios XL Non Perfumed Dry Touch Gel-Cream and he liked it!).
Anthelios is by far my favourite sun protection range especially when it comes to taking care of my face. Moreover, the tubes are travel friendly as they come in a 50ml format so you can take them with you on holiday!
