Whilst it’s fun in sun it’s important to remember that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK. According to the British Skin Foundation, at least 100,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. In addition the disease kills over 2,500 people per year in the UK. That’s seven people every day. It’s not cool to look lobster red and I never go without sun protection .
La Roche-Posay know the importance of using a high SPF. They know that men and women suffer when using some sun-care that hasn’t been designed for sensitive skin. This is where their new range comes in. Voila – say hello to the Anthelios XL series.
There’s a face mist, comfort cream, light fluid, dry touch gel cream, even a stick and an oil.
Everything in the collection has an SPF of 50+. Why? Because this is the optimum level of protection to prevent skin being harmed from strong UV rays.
The stand out product in the collection for me is the Ultra Light Tinted Fluid. When I’m sans foundation and face cream, my skin is whiter than white so I’m usually super uncomfortable going bare. This fluid however contains lightly-tinted formula for a light, non-greasy, natural glow. It’s water resistant too so no worry of streaky coverage or patches down your face.
Anthelios efficacy has been demonstrated via clinical studies carried out in-vivo on subjects suffering from sun intolerances, particularly those caused by UVA rays. Anthelios products all have a high PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) factor, offering one of the best protections against UVA offered by any brand in the world.
La Roche-Posay follows strict formulations standards:
– 100% hypoallergenic skincare range
– High concentration of selected ingredients with Thermal Spring Water
– Tested on sensitive skin
This sounds amazing, the tinted fluid sounds like the perfect thing to take on holiday!
