Recommending to Purchase?

A good sunscreen goes a long way when it comes to the anti-aging process. La Roche-Posay Anthelios has a sunscreen available, with an SPF of 30, which is the recommended amount of protection for noticeable results. Although this product is light in texture and provides the broad-spectrum protection necessary to prevent the most common signs of aging, there is one particularly glaring issue with this product. The marketing surrounding this product claims that you’ll feel a pleasant, cooling sensation upon application. This sensation is actually due to menthol-derived ingredients and alcohol, which will likely cause irritation over time, especially for those with sensitive skin. Considering the fact that this is a sunscreen, any dryness or irritation is especially concerning. We would recommend continuing your search for a sunscreen that does not contain unnecessary irritants.


There does not appear to be a time limit for returning La Roche-Posay products (at least no limit is listed in the returns section of the website). If you’re not happy with the product, you simply complete a return form and attach it to your invoice. However, return shipping costs are not covered by the refund.
