The HEAT is ON so SPF is even more of an essential!
La Roche-Posay is renowned for their suncare range which is formulated with minimalistic formulas suitable for children, adults and all types of sensitive skin. Along with numerous lipstick choices in my hand bags, you wouldn’t find me without an Anthelios Pocket size or the Anthelios Invisible Face Mist for easy touch up over my makeup. Excitingly, La Roche-Posay is adding two new additions to the Anthelios range this May.
I have all the details and performances for you here.
Anthelios Shaka Ultra-Light Fluid SPF50+(RRP: £16.50/50ml)
Let’s talk science first! The new Shaka Ultra-Light Fluid uses a new technology called Intelimer, polymers that act as surfactant. These combine water and oil molecules within a harmonious balance. When applied to face, it forms an even layer of sun protection, offering a fuller, more complete protection and less greasy finish compared to traditional formulas. The new formula is designed to be water, sweat and rub resistant.
La Roche-Posay signature technology featuring [XL]-Protect™ with a patented filtering system Mexoplex™. The formula is also enriched with soothing, antioxidant Thermal Water.
Anthelios Shaka Ultra-Light Fluid is housed in a slim and compact bottle, no excuse for forgetting re-application! To use, simply shake to activate the oil and water complex for a optimum protection.
The texture is very liquidy, so remember to squeeze out lightly. I adore how fast the liquid is absorbed and leaving absolutely no white cast. It feels weightless and non-greasy on. Furthermore, it sits well under makeup. I’ve been trying it out for a week and it hasn’t clogged my pores or caused any irritations.
Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Mist SPF50+(RRP: £22.00/200ml)
This is La Roche-Posay’s first-ever SPF mist for body.
Key ingredients & technology
- The bi-phase formula contains a blend of boosters and polymers to help the formula apply more effectively on the skin.
- Patented filtering system Mexoplex™ combined with [XL]-Protect™ technology
- Enriched with soothing, antioxidant Thermal Water
How to use
Shake well to activate the formula and blend the balance of water and oils for optimum protection. Spray a fine layer over skin and re-apply when needed. I like to position the spray 25-30cm away from my body.
The spray produces a fine mist (with precision) that can easily spread across a body part. The mist contains no white cast (yes!) and is absorbed quickly. I would rub the product into my skin to ensure even coverage. The product feels hydrating on which is always good as my skin on my body (especially my legs) is quite dry. The mist also leaves a healthy sheen on which I love.
I’m thoroughly enjoying and appreciating the two new La Roche-Posay Anthelios additions. Anthelios Shaka Ultra-Light Fluid is beautifully compatible with my oily skin, invisible and lightweight feel. Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Mist is perfect for applying on-the-go.
