La Roche Posay Melt In Cream Review

If you are living in the UK you may know that we are finally seeing some sun around here and for anyone else around the world who is getting plenty of sun, you know that it is essential to whip out that Spf. An important fact to know is that we should technically be wearing Spf in any type of weather because we are always constantly being exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays, regardless of our skin type or colour.  

Quite recently we had purchased the La roche posay Anthelios XL melt in cream Spf 50+. After hearing such positive reviews on other blogs and youtube videos on La roche posay products, we decided to give this product a go with high hopes in mind.


After a good few trials of this sunscreen, I personally wouldn't say I absolutely love this product but then again I don't hate it either, its a kind of love-hate relationship with this one and heres why. Once initially applying it to the skin it is very creamy in texture which is what I really enjoyed about it, but...theres always got to be a 'but'...once you get to that last point of rubbing it into the skin, it starts to feel quite chalky and not as smooth on the skin as I thought it would have been. I don't quite know how to explain this in words but it almost feels quite rubbery towards the end which is pretty odd for a cream formula Spf. Also to take into account that it does leave a slight white cast on the face but I've seen that this is soon solved after 10-15 minutes of applying it as it does literally melt into the skin! 

Anyways moving on to the positive note of things, what I really like about this product is that it doesn't leave your face looking like a greasy mess! If you guys know why I mean by this you'll know that quite a lot of sunscreens out there tend to leave a shiny veil all over your face which is really not an attractive sight especially when the sun is out and you're feeling super hot! Another thing which gives this product a thumbs up is that it isn't drying on the skin and so its great for those of you with dry skin. Also it is non-comedogenic and free of any parabens.

So overall I would say it is up to personal preference and what your skin likes, so if you guys do try this out, do share your thoughts on this product in the comments because we'd love to know what your opinions are! xxx
