For those who have been following me, for sure by now you know that I live for the sun. Honestly, if I can find a job where it let me take all Summer off, I would not think twice. Unfortunately as much as I enjoy the sun, I have to admit, that it brings lots of health risks, and therefore I try to inform myself as much as possible so that I have full protection for my skin.
Thanks to La Roche-Posay I got the opportunity to review a couple of sun products from La Roche-Posay and in the process I learned about the health issues that the sun can cause. Skin cancers are the only type of cancers which can be seen with the naked eye, and therefore one must pay a visit immediately to their dermatologist, if a potentially dangerous mole is noticed.
These are the following La Roche-Posay products that I reviewed:
Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Wet Skin Gel Texture
Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Tinted Dry Touch Gel Cream
Anthelios XL 50+ Non-Perfumed Dry Touch Gel Cream
Posthelios After Sun Antioxidant Hydra Gel
The Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Wet Skin Gel Texture is my favourite from these four products. It is waterproof and I like the fact that it does not leave any white marks. I also like its smell, which is not that of a traditional sunblock, but more refreshing.
These two sun products are the Anthelios XL 50+ Tinted Dry Touch Gel Cream and the Non-Perfumed Dry Touch Gel Cream. The main difference between these two products is that one can give you a tint to your face, with a matte finish. Its called Airlicium Technology will control all sources of shine like sweat and dirt caused during the day on our skin. It can be used as an everyday makeup base. Both suncreams can be used around the eye area and are ideally for sun sensitive skin. Personally I think one should own both, because since we are having excessive hot days, it is not a good excuse not to use sunblock so that one can apply makeup. Also for makeup free days one can opt for the Non-Perfumed Dry Touch Gel Cream.
The Posthelios After Sun Antioxidant Hydra Gel can be used for both face and body. It is very refreshing. I store it in the fridge and after a day in the sun its the gives your skin the best sensation after a shower or bath while keeping your body moisturised for 48 hours.
Also something for all of you, when buying 2 Anthelios XL Products you will get this free cooler!
