Hello everyone!! Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend. So while some of us do spend time roaming outside for long hours during weekends we do have to take proper steps for skin care in order to avoid adverse effects of UVA UVB rays, pollution etc. One of the important step is to use a proper sunscreen. Remember even if its winter or cloudy one should never skip a sunscreen.
Today I am going to review a sunscreen which I am currently using and that is La Roche-Posay Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid with SPF 50. Previously I have used few of them from brands like Lotus, Lakme, No7 but I have heard a lot about this sunscreen so I thought of picking it up. La Roche-Posay is known a lot for the variety of sunscreen products they have with different SPF values. I myself prefer products having protection upto SPF 50 for my skin.
About La Roche-Posay Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid: For the first time, a mineral sun filter and powerful anti-oxidants are combined in a unique patent pending formula that offers 100% mineral UV protection down to the cellular level* in a unique lightweight, non-whitening texture. The first line of defense is an advanced UV filtering system featuring an optimized blend of titanium dioxide that offers long-lasting, broad spectrum protection with advanced efficacy against UVA rays. A proprietary dispersion technology is the key to assuring this enhanced uniform protection. The second line of defense features CELL-OX SHIELD, a powerful patent-pending antioxidant complex featuring Senna Alata. Suitable for all skin types.
Price: 33.49USD for 1.7oz [Approx INR 2200/-]
La Roche-Posay Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid can be bought online on target.com or walgreens.com. The one thing I love most about this sunscreen is the consistency of the product. Its fluid based and of thin texture so it spreads very easily and gets absorbed into the skin quickly. It provides a semi matte finish, and doesn’t leave a greasy layer behind. It stays for long and doesn’t clog pores. This one sunscreen I find suitable for all the skin types since it works great during cold weather as well. I top it off with some other moisturizer as well. I won’t say it is very moisturizing so it’s better to top it with a moisturizer or primer before applying the make up products.
La Roche-Posay Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid provides high UVA/UVB protection which is must anytime. Its safe for sensitive skin and its free from parabens. Being a water resistant product it can be used by swimmers as well. I have normally used sunscreens which are of cream base. I am quite impressed with this fluid based sunscreen since its very light on skin. Also the bottle is small enough to fit in your bag. So for those who travel a lot and have to re-apply sunscreen every two hours can always prefer this one. I am very much sure that this sunscreen does help us from not getting tanned since I have used it during long outdoor days as well without having any issues. You won’t sweat a lot and your skin will stay pleasant after using this.
