The Best Sun Cream For Sensitive Skin |
Favourites 16

Wearing sun cream is clearly a must, but with a lengthy list of unknown ingredients and unpleasant, greasy formulas, high street SPFs aren’t always kind on sensitive skin. However, you needn’t resign yourself to holiday breakouts, redness or irritation. Introducing La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range – dermatologically recommended sunscreens that have become something of a staple within the beauty industry.

What makes it different?

As well as offering the highest protection available, it’s specially formulated for sensitive skin and has even been clinically tested on those with acne, eczema or allergies. The range comes recommended by 90% of dermatologists, is paraben-free and non-perfumed. Plus, there’s something no matter your skin type: whether it’s a light-weight fluid for an invisible finish or a mattifying gel for blemish-prone skin you’re after, they’ve got it covered.

What’s on offer?

A facial sunscreen to suit every skin type. For normal to combination skin, we recommend the Anthelios Ultralight Fluid SPF50 for a barely-there, non-greasy finish. If your skin is more oily and prone to blemishes, try the non-pore-clogging Anti-Shine range to mattify and prevent breakouts – you can even wear the Anthelios Anti-Shine Mist over your make-up, so it’s ideal for midday top ups. But if your complexion is on the drier side, make a beeline for Anthelios’ Comfort Cream, a rich, velvety formula that soothes and moisturises as it protects.

Why we rate it…

Whether you’re heading off to sunnier climes or looking for an everyday SPF, the high-tech formulas won’t disappoint. The light-weight formulas sit well under make-up and don’t clog pores, all whilst offering broad-spectrum protection (against UVA, UVB, infrared and pollution).

What are people saying?

Beauty blogger Liberty London Girl has said the “miracle” products protected her skin and made it feel “heavenly”, while Consultant Dermatologist Dr Hiva Fassihi claims the “amazing” range is “pleasant to wear”, meaning there really is “no excuse not to use sun protection”. A loyal A-list following including Kate Moss, Millie Mackintosh and Charlize Theron is testament to the high-quality range.
