La Roche-Posay Anthelios Hydrating Body Lotion SPF50+ Review

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Hydrating Body Lotion SPF50+ Review

Is your dry, sensitive skin making it difficult to find a sunscreen that’s both kind-to-skin and respectful of the natural environment? If so, look no further; La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios Hydrating Body Lotion is an SPF50+ formula that will answer all your prayers.


The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…

La Roche-Posay’s innovative sunscreen offers broad, photostable UVA/UVB/Infrared protection to guard dry, sensitive skin, while also taking a step towards sustainability, thanks to its eco-tube design; made from sustainably sourced cardboard, this tube requires 45% less plastic to produce.


You Will Love This If…

If you have dry, sun-sensitive skin, and you sometimes struggle to find the right SPF for your skin type, La Roche-Posay’s hydrating lotion may be the perfect choice as it’s suitable even for sensitive, sun-allergic bodies.


The Formula:

Anthelios guards against UVA and UVB rays using chemical and mineral filters. For an added bonus, the non-perfumed formula even offers antioxidant defence, helping to prevent oxidative stress induced by pollution. But what is the finish like? It’s incredibly sweat-resistant and water-resistant and doesn’t leave marks.

An added bonus is that the formula and sun filters used have been eco-tested to better respect marine life.


The Texture

The sunscreen has a cream texture that melts in quickly.


How Should You Apply It?

Apply 30 minutes before exposure and re-apply generously every two hours to maintain protection. Take care to re-apply after swimming, perspiring or towelling.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Showcasing La Roche-Posay’s increasing dedication to the environment – they are committed to protecting your skin, while being more respectful of the environment – the tube is made from integrating cardboard; it almost looks like a brown plastic tube but still has a smooth cardboard finish that means their use of plastic for this style of packaging has been reduced by 45%.



Tested under dermatological control on sensitive skin.
