I have been buying La Roche Posay facial sun creams for years. They absorb quickly and offer a complete block so they’re perfect for my skin. A few months ago I picked up La Roche-Posay Anthelios Stick SPF 50+ recently and thought I’d share.
The stick is perfect for skiing. Anyone who has experienced the red strips down your nose and across you cheekbones from skiing will be thankful for this one. It’s small enough that you could pop it in the pocket of you ski jacket for top-up applications on the piste.
I haven’t been skiing in a few years so I used this on a sun holiday. The stick is perfect for applying to particular areas and that’s what appealed to me most about this one. I am covered in moles (boo hoo) so factor 50+ is the order of the day. I apply in on sun holidays directly to moles.I have also stuck it in my pocket to apply down my nose and under my eyes whilst out on day trips or walking.
It dries fast, smells nice and the tube is longer lasting than it appears. To give you an idea of how it settles into the skin, here are some pictures. The first was taken immediately after application, the second one minute afterwards.
The stick costs €10.50 and is available from pharmacies around Ireland. I am also keen to try the Anthelios Fluid Extreme SPF 50+ (€21.50) so if anyone has tried it please let me know how you got on.
Do you use spf in the Winter?
