La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+

For those of you who don't know, I'm a little bit obsessed with SPF. If I leave the house without any on, I feel not only naked but a tad worried too. We're all aware of the dangers posed by UVA/UVB rays so it really goes without saying that we should all be using one daily. 

As a self-confessed addict, I've tried many SPF's over the years with varying degrees of success. Out of all the one's I've tried, I've been most impressed by the La Roche Posay ones. They're effective and I've yet to react to them either which is a big bonus as most other SPF's don't get on with my skin. 

After deciding that Drunk Elephant's Umbra was definitely not for me, I picked up the LRP Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ and I don't think I'll be looking back. It offers the high protection I look for with a pretty much weightless feel. It does initially feel a little greasy I won't lie but trust me, it dries down to nothing. Another big plus is that it sits beautifully under makeup too; no signs of pilling and it doesn't break my makeup down as the day goes on either. Oh and it's completely fragrance free, so sensitive skinned people look no further.

Packaging wise it's also pretty great. It's a slim, 50ml bottle which makes it the perfect travel companion. Most SPF's come in a tube which is great but the slimmer profile on this makes it way more portable in my opinion. All it takes is a good shake and you're ready to go!

Overall I'm super impressed with this product. It's everything I would want from a facial SPF and I haven't had to compromise on anything. For £16.50 you would expect a few snags, but it's perfect for me and I will absolutely be repurchasing over and over again. Also, for those of you who have been eyeing Benefit's Dream Screen SPF 45 (£27), this is pretty much the same thing. It's actually less greasy; has higher SPF; costs less and you actually get more product so I'd recommend the La Roche Posay over the Benefit one any day.
