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 highly recommend this product. I wear it under my make-up every day since it's so light and absorbent. It is on the pricey side for the amount you get but you don't have to use much to cover your entire face since it's not thick and goopy.

      I never fail to apply it first thing in the morning and several times a day. It is extremely effective for sun protection and to maintain the proper humidity in my skin.

          This might be great for those concerned with greasyness and who are indoors most of the day. But its all chemical sunscreens, which breakdown when exposed to sunlight during the day. This is the reason you need to reapply often. Some studies even suggest that chemical suncreens can cause worse problems because as the formula changes during the day, chemical sunscreens can actually encourage DNA damage. Its best to have at least one actual physical blocker in any formula - zinc or titanium dioxide. Zinc helps reduce redness an irritation and is good for those with acne. Its also an excellent sunblocker and unlike the chemical sunscreens, won't break down during the day.

            This is an excellent product. Have had skin cancers removed from my face PRIOR to using a daily sunscreen. Happy to say "no skin cancer" for 3 years since using this product. I wear it EVERYDAY. Pricey but worth it!

                I put this on before a run. Thought it was fine at first but wherever I had been sweathing, my skin turned bright yellow! I have since seen postings on other websites with the same comment.

                  I love this sun block. My skin is very fair and I burn and freckle easily. I do the very basics to take care of my skin: avoid the sun and always use a block. I've been using Anthelios for years, but this formula is the best for the face. It's not greasy, works into the skin well, and completely protects from the damages of the sun. I highly recommend it.

                    If you hate the heavy feeling of most sunscreens, this is for you. It disappears and works well under makeup. It is worth the price.
