This sunblock is great for the face and is very light. I have combination skin which easily breaks out but this product goes on smoothly and doesn't clog my pores. I wear it over my regular moisturizer and don't have a problem. I'm completely satisfied with this product and happy that it has SPF of 60. For complete protection against the sun, I use this in conjunction with their eye-cream Roche-Posay Hydraphase Eyes, SPF 29.

The instructions say to shake well before each application. This is important because it prevents the product from going on too white. Shake it well and it will go on flawlessly!

This is not the same as the French version 'ANTHELIOS XL FLUIDE EXTRÊME
SPF 50+'.

The two active ingredients in the real version provide extra UVA protection: Mexoryl XL (Drometrizole trisiloxane) together with Mexoryl XS (terephthalylidene dicamphor sulfonic acid, aka emcapsule)

The version sold here has the same UVB, and marginal UVA sunscreen you can get in any generic and much cheaper US sunscreen: Active Ingredients: Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate (15%), Octisalate 5%, Octocrylene 5%, Oxybenzone 6%

Unless you really love the texture, don't buy this thinking it is the same as the European version which is not sold in the US. Here you can get products with Mexoryl XS but not XL as it hasn't been FDA approved yet. It has been approved in Europe, Canada, Japan, and Australia.

        Comments about La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid Extreme, SPF 60, 1.7 fl oz:

        I always felt guilty about not wearing sun screen every day, (particularly because I'm uber pale). But really, I just couldn't find a product that I could wear that didn't jam up my pores like a traffic accident. I love reading about foreign beauty products, so when I stumbled upon this I figured I'd give it a go.

        Seriously...this stuff is amazing! A little goes a long way (it is factor 60 after all), and goes on with little to zero shine. I wear this stuff under make up, outside/inside, even going to the gym - and it doesn't make my face look like an oil slick! In fact, it makes my skin feel softer after putting it on! I'm going to try to wear this as a moisturizer once the winter comes.

        The only downside I did find was that it does sometimes end up running a bit and stinging my eyes. It's not every time I wear it though, so maybe it was just due to a little extra prespiration or I just put a bit too much on my forehead.

          My dermatologist gave me a sample of this and I was just so impressed. Compared to many others I've tried, this was The Winner, hands-down! Pricey, but I'm worth it. Non-greasy, non-shiny. Love this stuff! It glides on effortlessly. In fact, it's so smooth, I sometimes almost forget to follow up with my moisturizer!

              I've used this ever since my "Baltimore's Best" dermatologist asked me to bring it back from France before it was approved in the US. She danced up and down when she got it. This stuff protects and keeps freckles from appearing.

                After seeing on TV from beauty experts, it is best to get a higher suncreen with UVA & UVB. This was what I was looking for. I initially used the La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Melt-In Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 60, Normal to Dry Skin, which experiencing a humid hot summer in Chicago, my face was getting white stains when I was sweating. I saw this and decided to switch. WOW! No white stains if I sweat and it's lighter!! Same coverage, just lighter and BETTER!!!

                    I have used this sunscreen a few times and I do enjoy the lightweight and silky texture of the lotion. I am able to apply makeup over without the sunscreen making it look cakey or greasy.

                    The only con is that it did cause a bit of a breakout for me. However, my skin is extremely sensitive, particularly to sunscreens and I haven't found any with high SPF that don't cause this reaction.

                      My dermatologist recommended this product as a daily part of my beauty routine due to beginning signs of malasma. It is gentle on my sensitive skin and doesn't cause breakouts. I highly recommend it. The texture is different than sunscreens I am used to but I love the matte finish!!!
