I am so pleased to be writing about this product. It’s a favorite within a favorite and it just doesn’t get any better than that. SPF is a powerhouse when it comes to skincare, in fact, if there is only one thing you’re going to do for your skin, it should be wearing SPF. Afterall, SPF if the only thing that can PREVENT skin damage (it also helps heal damage too because it’s a superhero and can do it all). There’s also the tiny little benefit of preventing skin-cancer if you’re not convinced enough to wear it.
Lecturing done. Wear SPF. Just do it, it’ll be the best decision of your day and I promise, in 10, 20, 30 years from now, you’ll be thanking yourself and so proud for each and every day that you wore it. Also, all those other bitches who didn’t wear SPF will be hella jealous of your ageless skin while they are sitting there in their premature crinkle wrinkles and age spots.
So now that we’re done with the importance of wearing SPF, let’s talk about the actual product. There are countless sunscreens out there, entire aisles of it and finding the right one can be daunting. Luckily for you, I’m going to make your trip to the SPF aisle quick and painless. If you have oily or combination skin, do yourself a serious favor and go to your store of choice that sells La Roche-Posay and make a beeline straight for their Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid.
This sunscreen is ultra fast-absorbing like you won’t believe it. No oily sunscreen residue here. No white cast either, even under flash. It gives a matte, yet comfortable finish. No tight or cakey feel that lots of other matte products are known for. This sunscreen is water-resistant as well so perfect for beach/pool/bathtub (?) days.
You guys, I can’t say enough how in love I am with this product. I have had the HARDEST time with finding sunscreens that work with my difficult skin, sunscreens would usually always make me a total greaseball and make my makeup slip and slide all over the place. And then if I tried to use a super matte one it would be cakey and cling to all my dry areas and these ones for some reason would almost always give a white cast too. #ewwwno
The images below show you how it dries down, it’s like on the other arm there is nothing even there. No shiny sunscreen grease, no white cast, it’s hard to see it here, but there is a nice subtle blur and smoothing action happening. Oh, and, the second picture was taken approx two seconds after quickly rubbing it in. Hello, fast absorption.
I love, love, love the Anthelios Ultra-Light Fluid because it is well, perfection in a bottle. It’s the best sunscreen I have ever used. Yeah, let’s just give it a moment of silence to appreciate that deep and meaningful statement. #blessednotstressed
Also, go ahead and give it a round of applause because it has another trick up its sleeve: it looks amazing under makeup! Yes, I find myself sometimes putting it on even at night (what a silly goose I am) because it works like a really good primer! It just smoothes out the skin so beautifully without any of that silicone feel that most primers give and it mattifies like nothing else without being drying. Ugh, resisting using one million exclamation points is so hard for me right now, appreciate it.
And you know what, you can’t stop clapping now, let’s give her a standing ovation because as if Anthelios Ultra Light couldn’t get any better, it also makes your skin look like it has a smoothing and blurring primer without the need for makeup. So yes, if you want the most perfect SPF of your life that makes your skin look better on makeup-less days, (who doesn’t?!) go out right now and get this. Do not hesitate.
Stop reading this and go buy it already. It will be the best decision of your life. It could save you from skin cancer, it will make you look younger for much longer, it will make you the envy of all who see your more-youthful-than-their’s skin, it will make your makeup look even better and last longer and last, but not least, Anthelios Ultra Light will make your skin look blurred and smoothed all by itself. #nomakeupnecessary #nothingfeelsbetterthanthis
