Its summer with the sun cooking us literally! We need all that sunscreen for protection and I have been using one since quite a long time now and I am ready to review it. Its the La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Gel Cream SPF 50+ with Anthelios XL.
About The Looks!
The packaging is simple yet nice. I like the white and orange color combination which screams like a sun protection product. The sunscreen comes in a squeezy tube packaging with a translucent white cap which flip opens. The box has all the information like price, quantity, ingredients, etc and apart from this it has a lot of other information as well and in different languages. The packaging is of good quality and feels sturdy. The cap seals off the product inside and nothing leaks out even when it drops. I like it!

My views and thoughts about the La Roche-Posay Dry Touch Gel Cream SPF 50+!
First let me tell you about Anthelios XL. It is the major component of this sunscreen. Anthelios XL sunscreens contain the active ingredients Mexoryl XL and Mexoryl SX, two sun filters that protect against UVA rays. Another amazing fact is that the Anthelios XL does not degrade after application and is able to maintain its efficacy over a long period of time. Some experts say that its effective at blocking UVA rays even after 24 hours!
Now coming back to the sunscreen, it is white in color and has a runny consistency. Even though it is a squeezy tube sometimes its hard to control the amount that comes out, credit goes to its runny consistency. You really need to be careful a little bit. Even though its runny, when you apply it on the face, it dries out pretty quickly! You really need to work pretty fast and make sure that you dab the product all around your face to ensure even application. The finish it provides is matte, not super matte, but good matte, also there is no greasiness or shine or white cast.
Coming to the sun protection it provides. I am blown away by this!! Its simply amazing!! It has made my skin appear even looking even more! I normally apply it in the morning and don’t retouch until afternoon and it works amazingly well! My dark spots and melasma have improved over the time and my skin looks much better and even toned now. I have not experienced any irritation or break outs using this. I am really glad that I invested my money in such a great product. It does what it says!! Highly impressed!!
If you need one sunscreen, go for this one!! It is an amazing product. Especially when it comes with Anthelios XL, which does not degrades in the sun and keep protecting your skin even longer than you can imagine! Its worth every penny! I have seen a huge difference after using it and I am sure you will too! Highly recommended!!
