If you read my ‘Let’s talk SPF…’ post a few days ago, then you will know how strongly I believe in the importance of applying SPF every day. Over the years I’ve tried a fair few products out, but I keep coming back to La Roche Posay. If you’re looking for SPF products that sit well under make-up and don’t leave you with that dreaded white-cast look, then La Roche Posay could be the new brand for you!
La Roche Posay is a French skin-care brand who specialise in making dermatological skin-care accessible to those who need it. The brand is a huge advocate for spreading awareness on sun-safety through their high-quality sunscreen and skin cancer awareness messaging.
Although I have bought numerous of La Roche Posay’s products, the ones I want to talk to you about today are my go-to products for sun protection.
The first is their Effaclar Duo+ SPF30. I use this product every morning as a moisturiser and it has worked wonders for my skin. The product aims to visibly correct imperfections and reduce blackheads. This product is ideal for oily and blemish-prone skin types and the added bonus of containing SPF 30 is a no-brainer. Apply this every morning and take comfort in the fact that you are protected from the sun.
The second product is for days when I know I will be exposed to the sun for longer periods of time, such as on holiday. It is their Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Fluid SPF50+ Sun Cream. This product works perfectly under my make-up and doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy. There is also no white-cast and is suitable for oily skin. I sometimes use this product under my moisturiser if I need extra protection that day, otherwise, it is my go-to face sunscreen on holiday.
My skin type is oily and I have really got on well with these products. However, on La Roche Posay’s website, they have designated pages for each skin-type, and then they suggest which of their products will work best for your skin. There is also a quiz you can take, which will work out what your skin type is. I definitely recommend this brand if you’re looking to invest in your sun-care and skin protection.
Factor SPF into your daily routine, and stay safe in the sun!
