Product Overview

Product Overview

Protect your skin from UV rays with this La Roche Posay cream sunscreen.

This sunscreen from Anthelios with Mexoryl SX protection shields your skin from the damaging rays of the sun without feeling heavy or greasy. Sun damage can lead to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, burns and skin cancer. As one of the best sunscreens on the market, this product was also featured on the Today Show on NBC.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios with Mexoryl SX uses patented technology for incredible protection.

Anthelios 40 Sunscreen Cream uses the highest concentration of Mexoryl SX, a stable and organic sun filter that protects skin from short-wave UVA waves. Unlike many sun filters that also offer UVA protection, Anthelios with Mexoryl SX is highly photostable for the utmost protection. La Roche-Posay Anthelios 40 Sunscreen Cream also contains Parsol 1789, another proprietary ingredient that aids in the blocking of UVA/UVB sun rays. This product is ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The formula of this sunscreen is fragrance-free,  allergy tested, non-greasy, PABA-free and noncomedogenic.

Highlights

  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Provides a non-greasy finish
  • 2011 Instyle Best Beauty Buy Award Winner

Extra sun protection

My dermatologist recommended that I use two sunscreens--one with physical blockers and one with chemical blockers--for periods of time when I have extended exposure to the sun. Amongst her recommendations for sunscreens with chemical blockers, this one got the best rating from EWG. Its white but rubs in very well. I can wear it under my make-up without caking or streakiness. Be sure to use a good foaming cleanser to wash it off!

Thin Fluid

It's a very thin, running fluid that offers a wide veil. But the residue left white flutters all over my face.

CH in SC

I have had skin cancer and have allergies that prevent me from using many products on my skin. I have had no problems with this product. My doctor recommended Anthelios 40 sunscreen cream and I wear it daily.

Wonderful protection...

This is another favorite product of mine. My sister, who is also very fair-skinned, introduced me to Anthelios (at the time, we were buying from Canada). No offending scent, not too greasy. Great sun protection! Some may consider this a bit pricey, but I personally believe the protection is worth the price.

Heavy

I find this sunscreen hard to spread and must wear a moisturizer to even it out. It is the perfect strength when I know I will be out in the sun for long periods of time. I am not sure I would continue to use on a daily basis if I had not already purchased the tube.

Serious Sunscreen

This product is for people who need serious sun protection. It is thick and heavy and has a high titanium dioxide component which leaves a white cast to the skin. As a runner, this is an ideal product for me, but for daily use and under makeup, I prefer Anthelios 15 Sunscreen Cream or Anthelios SX Moisturizing Cream with Sunscreen, both providing comparable protection, with the exception of the physical block provided by the titanium dioxide.

Review of 40 sunscreen cream

I like the product and think it works well. The only issue I have found is it difficult to rub in. I leave the house often with white streaks on my face as if the sunscreen was not absorbed. If I am careful it is fine so not a huge issue for me.

LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 40 SUNSCREEN CREAM

I think this product works well as a sunscreen, but I do not like the texture of the lotion.

Prefer the 15

I bought this product because I've been using the 15 sunscreen and love it. I found it to be very very thick. It's tough to rub in and not nearly as moisturizing as the 15. I only use it if I'm going to be in the sun for a long time. Otherwise I stick with their 15.

Nice Sunscreen

I loved the Anthelios combination lotion and skin cream, so I ordered this when it became available. Good coverage, non-greasy feel. Nice as a sunscreen alone. But, it wasn't something I could wear under my makeup. I felt like it made my face look very pale.
