La Roche-Posay XL Anthelios Comfort Sun Cream SPF 50+ Review

When it comes to drugstore skincare, La Roche-Posay remains one of my favourite to-go brands. The winter chill flares up my dry skin especially around my cheeks, leading to a lot of itch and redness. It's time to switch up my usual La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50+ to a more moisturising and calming formula, and I choose La Roche-Posay Anthelios Comfort Sun Cream SPF 50+.

I purchased these two products: La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Comfort Tinted BB Cream SPF 50+ and La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Comfort Sun Cream SPF 50+ (regular untinted). The BB Cream is essentially a tinted moisturiser that only provides a light layer of coverage. I have swatched these on my current winter NC20 skin and pictured under flash photography. As you can see La Roche-Posay Anthelios Comfort Sun Cream SPF 50+ leaves a subtle white cast compared to the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Comfort Tinted BB Cream SPF 50+ which avoids it. Unfortunately the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Comfort Tinted BB Cream SPF 50+ is not a universal shade. This only works in my paler winter complexion but would be too ashy for anything darker than NC30, which is my colour during the sunnier summer months.

If you have dry irritable skin, I would definitely recommend these. Both instantly soothe and calm irritated beetroot skin and also work well under makeup. This is only lightly fragranced and so this would suit sensitive skin. Both makes provide added protection with SPF 50+ and high shield against UVA & UVB rays to prevent sun damage and premature ageing. You can use either for everyday wear.

I would not recommend these if you have oily skin as the cream formula can make you look greasy - in this case you can try the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50+ instead. The La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Comfort Tinted BB Cream SPF 50+ is a tricky shade that would only seem to fit light-medium skintones. It would be too dark for fair skin and too pale for anyone with medium to dark complexions. I would also avoid La Roche-Posay Anthelios Comfort Sun Cream SPF 50+ when you are expecting flash photography.

Overall I do love these products and I would repurchase should I run out.
