La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV & Anthelios Melt-in Cream Review

Today's sunscreen review is based on my husband's experience. He has oily skin and used these products for an extended period of time now. (Until he recently switch to Neutrogena)

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV Rehydration Intensive SPF 30

Product spread out

This sunscreen's active ingredient is Mexoryl, one of the UV absorbers used in sunscreen. It does not claim to have anything else other than sun protection and non-comedogenic.

If you have sensitive skin this might not be for you. It is very thick and tends to leave a bit of oil film after application. The sunscreen is also scented and does not smell like the typical sunscreen.

  • Not suitable for sensitive skin
  • Thick and quite oily, might cause breakouts for some
  • Leaves skin with an oil film
  • Heavily scented

The next sunscreen is also from La Roche-Posay, but I believe this is their newer collection.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Cream SPF 60

Product spread out

This sunscreen has a higher protection, however that is insignificant as you are meant to reapply every 2 hours for maximum sun protection. 

This sunscreen is noticeably thicker and also scented like the one mentioned before. Active ingredient is also the same product. When my husband was using this sunscreen, his face was extremely oily all the time and quite disgusting when he comes home in the evening. I do not recommend this product if you have oily skin. 

  • Thick formula, leaves skin very heavy
  • Oily and creates oil film
  • Scented, might not be suitable for sensitive skin
I have not personally tried these myself because I don't like scented face products. If you have tried them and have similar or better result please comment. 

Thank you and see you tomorrow!
