Hi my beautiful friends! Today I’m gonna talk to you about my favorite facial sunscreen, which is La Roche Posay Anthelios Extreme Fluid Sunscreen SPF20. Before I start the review let me tell you a few things about my skin, because they’re important when reviewing a product like that. My skin is combo-oily with some dry and sensitive patches, so I need something very light that won’t irritate my skin and I’ve found it!
Let’s start the review with the packaging as always! This sunscreen comes in a white plastic bottle that holds 50ml of product. The bottle is pretty basic and simple, but I like the applicator. I like how it’s on the side of the top of the bottle and not in the middle! At first glance you can’t see how much product you have left, but if you place it in front of any strong light you can. Here’s what it looks like :
The actual product is also white and the texture is very runny, almost like water and that’s really nice, because it means that it’s not heavy. It has a lovely light scent, kinda like sunscreen, but not offensive in my opinion. I love this sunscreen, because it’s not heavy, greasy or sticky at all and it absorbs into the skin pretty quickly, so you can easily use it as a makeup base. Here’s a picture of how it looks like :
See how it's dripping down my hand??
Now let’s talk about the price of this sunscreen. It retails for about 18Euros in Greece and you get 50ml of good quality product, which will last you quite some time. Yeah the price is higher than the sunscreens you can find at the super market, but I think it’s worth the extra money, because facial sunscreens at the supermarket are usually oily and sticky, so if you have already oily skin they won’t work for you! Plus you can always search online pharmacies for better prices! I always get mine from an online pharmacy and I’ve never paid 18Euros for it.
