What we say:
Claire: “Often with factor 50+ sun cream, it is really difficult to apply as is quite thick. When you have young ones wanting desperately to go out in the sun, this doesn’t make things easy or quick! I was pleasantly surprised by the La Roche-Posay cream as it has a lovely texture and rubs in extremely well and easily. Unlike so many other sun creams it doesn’t have a strong smell (non perfumed). You can barely tell you have it on as it doesn’t leave a sticky residue on your skin, rather a soft moisturised feel. Great that it doesn’t have parabens. Will definitely be buying more for the summer.”
Sheena: “Non-greasy, nice consistency. Absorbed into the skin nicely and didn’t take too much rubbing. Most importantly no skin reaction! Would be great in a roller ball.”
Kelly: “This cream rubbed in really easily and kept my children’s skin protected without the sticky feeling that many suncreams leave behind. I’m a big fan of any suncream that is easy to apply – and I have noticed that La Roche-Posay sell a spray style option – I am definitely going to try this one!”
Louise: “Lovely moisturising cream which rubbed in well – I can’t stand a suncream for kids that doesn’t rub in quickly, it’s a nightmare as it is to get them to stay still, so that’s a massive thumbs up. In addition, the suncream smells divine! Typical suncream greasiness on the skin, but I’m assuming this is part of how suncreams actually work! I’m going to have to take their word for it on the SPF, as we didn’t have a day that was mega sunny. I never buy less than a 50+ and this is one I would certainly consider now (especially as water resist).
