Review: La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Melt-In Cream 50+


Continuing with my reviews, next up is La Roche-Posay's sunscreen that I bought for my mother. I only used it a couple of times but I decided to write a review anyway. It's meant for sun intolerant skin and has a big shinny writing on the box that says Recommendation of 2011, so I guessed it must be good. The manufacturer claims it doesn't contain any parabens, it waterproof, has no fragrances and it's non comedogenic (it doesn't clog pores). It has a new filter system with UV filters caled Mexoryl SX and XL and it's suited for normal to dry skin.
The cream comes in a nice squeeze tube. The lid seemed a bit suspicious because I always had a feeling like I didn't close it properly. It's a slightly yellow, relatively thick cream with a faint classical sunscreen scent. I applied about a 1/4 tea spoon of cream on my face. You have to rub it in quickly because it sinks in fast.
It didn't leave any white marks whatsoever, but it did leave a slight shine and for the first couple of minutes it felt a bit sticky. I then continued with applying my regular products: Clinique Pore Minimizer and Lancome Color Ideal foundation. I didn't feel like I need to powder it. It didn't look completely mat but slightly dewy, but I'm not that fussy about a bit of shine anyway. It feels very comfortable on the skin, you don't even feel like you have anything on. It didn't clog my pores, but as I said I only wore it a couple of times and I rarely stumble on a product that clogs my pores. At the end of the day my make up looked fine, as if I didn't add anything into my routine. 
It's great sunscreen with a great sun protection, I would suggest this one for people with dry to normal and combination skin (I suspect that those with oily skin might find it a bit to shinny. I bought it for 14-15€.


Nadaljujem s svojimi ocenami in naslednja na vrsti je sončna krema od La Roche-Posay. Sicer sem jo kupila za mami in sem jo sama uporabila le nekajkrat, ampak sem se vseeno odločila napisati oceno. Namenjena je netoleratni koži in ljudem, ki trpijo za alergijo na sonce. Vsebuje nov filterni sistem, ki združuje UV filtra Mexoryl SX in XL. Proizvajalec pravi da je najprimernejša za suho in normalno kožo, ne vsebuje dišav, parabenov, je izjemno vodoodporna in ni komedogena (ne maši por).
Krema je pakirana v priročni tubi, pokrovček se mi je zdel sumljiv, ker sem vsakič imela občutek, da je nisem dobro zaprla. Sama krema je zelo svetlo rumene barve in kar gosta z rahlim klasični vonjem po sončnih kremah. Na obraz sem nanesla priporočeno količino 1/4 čajne žličke. Mazati jo je treba kar hitro, ker se hitro vpije in potem prsti kar malo bremzajo po koži. Ni pustila nobenih belih sledov, sem pa opazila rahel sijaj in pa prvih nekaj minut je koža bila malo lepljiva. Nato sem nadaljevala z mojo običajno rutino: Clinique-ov Pore Minimizer in Lancome Color Ideal tekočim pudrom. Ni sem mi zdelo, da rabim uporabiti puder v kamnu, čeprav ni izgledalo kompletno mat, ampak mene rahel sijaj sploh ne moti. Čez dan sploh nimaš občutka, da imaš sončno kremo (kot pri navadnih naprimer, pač tisti masten občutek). Ni mi mašila pore, ampak sem jo nosila le nekajkrat, pa tudi redkokateri izdelek mi maši pore. Cel dan je mejkap izgledal popolnoma ok.
Meni se zdi odlična sončna krema s super zaščito. Nazadnje ko sem imela sončno kremo s zaščito 50+ (se mi zdi da je bila od Müllerja) sem bila bela kot stena, tako da tole je velik korak naprej. Meni se zdi najbolj primerna za suho, normalno in mešano kožo, tistim z mastno kožo se bo morda zdela pretežka in da pusti preveč sijaja. Kupila sem jo v Lekarni Ljubljana (City Park) za nekaj čez 14€.
