Extra sun protection
November 17, 2014

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
December 16, 2012

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...
September 16, 2008

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.

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
September 03, 2008

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.

A sunscreen that lasts

Review of 40 sunscreen cream
August 16, 2008

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.

August 15, 2008

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

Prefer the 15
August 15, 2008

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
August 15, 2008

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.
