Review: La Roche-Posay Anthelios

I got this product in my Glymm Box this month. :) It is a melt in cream that is used daily, but acts as a sunscreen that goes under your make up. I will be basing the value and stuff off the full size product.

Blog Post:

Name: Anthelios SPF 60 Melt In Cream
Availability: (US only) / certain drug stores
Price: $20 and up
Amount: 50mL

Pictures are of my sample :)

now on my hand:


Packaging: 8/10
Product: 23/25
Value: 8/10
Ease of Use: 4/5

Total: 43/50 = 86% = A


The packaging on this product is okay. The material is a little thicker then it would be on something else. It is a little tougher to squeeze. But with this product that is okay because you don't need very much. I feel as thought it should be a snap lid because when you have product on your hands, a twist lid is harder to put on but other then that the packaging is okay! :)

The product is really nice. It isn't greasy, and make up does not apply differently over it. Since the SPF is so high (60) it is hard to get burnt walking out side to go somewhere. I tested this product out at the beach last weekend when i was there. Me and my boyfriend both used it and neither of us got burnt where we applied it. We both did have base tans but I think the sunscreen really did work, the sun was soo hot those days.

The value (of the full size product) is kind of expensive. But you barely need any and it is a fairly high SPF. The product will last a long time. My sample was 15mL so a full size is over triple the size. That is a lot of sunscreen just for your face. 

This product is very easy to use. I still think the lid should be a snap lid, so you aren't fiddling around with product in your hand. The rest of it is very simple. It is just like a moisturizer for your face. I like how it isn't greasy and you can't see it once it dries. 

I do really like this product and will continue to use it. I would recommend it to a friend if they were looking for a product like this. The price is a little high for most of my friends. But I will definitely think of buying the full size next summer. :)
