    How to Use Anthelios SPF 50 Gentle Lotion Mineral Sunscreen

    Directions:

    • Apply generously 15 minutes before sun exposure
    • Mineral sunscreen works by creating a physical barrier on top of the skin to reflect and scatter UV rays. Because the ingredients stay on top of the skin, a white cast can be perceived if not applied correctly.
    • To help the formula blend into the skin, work in small sections. Apply a dime-size amount into the palm of your hands and rub them together. Then apply to one area of the body at a time. Rub well until the lightweight formula is no longer visible.
    • Reapply:
        After 80 minutes of swimming or sweating
        Immediately after towel drying
        At least every 2 hours
    • Sun Protection Measures: read back of packaging

    Recommended for:

    • All skin types
    • Sensitive skin
    • For face and body

    The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends this product as an effective aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin, including sunburn and possibly premature aging.

    Anthelios SPF 50 Gentle Lotion Mineral Sunscreen Product Reviews

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sunscreen! I have sensitive, mature skin that needs maximum protection that doesn't irritate my skin. This sunscreen is perfect! It has a higher percentage of zinc which is calming, yet it doesn't leave a white cast -- after applying, any white cast disappears in a few minutes. I also like that it has antioxidants to help combat free radicals. Thank you, La Roche-Posay!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mattifying effect for oily skin! I think this sunscreen is a good value. I agree that it leaves a white cast, so this product might not be an attractive option for people who look ashy with any mineral sunscreen. This is a thick lotion. I found it difficult to apply to my face, but I can minimize the cast if I have time and spread one dollop at a time. Overall, I do manage to spread a dollar-coin-sized squirt to face, neck, and upper chest. I actually use this to mattify my face in the morning, apply a tinted sunscreen on top, and reapply with a different sunscreen throughout the day. I didn't expect the mattifying effect to help make sunscreen reapplication easier, but I have found that when I use the Gentle Lotion as my first application, subsequent applications of my chemical sunscreen are not as greasy and do not burn my eyes (my chemical sunscreen used to always travel and burn my eyes). I hope this helps you future reader!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It leaves a white cast..... I was very excited to try this mineral sunscreen, as it has good active ingredients. However, the sunscreen leaves a white cast that never goes away. I waited for more than 30 minutes for it to soak in to my face but it just never happened which made me look like a geisha or ghost. The result was disappointing for a sunscreen at this price point.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not burn eyes It does leave a white cast on but it fades over time. It was difficult to put on since it was like rubbing paste onto your skin, but it does not burn your eyes if you rub them later in the day which is a plus for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, no white cast! I am Hispanic/darker skin, and I’ve tried so many mineral sunscreens but this is the first that doesn’t leave a white cast on my skin! It also feels ultra hydrating and smooth. No pilling.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not soak in/Does not wash off I put this on and spent two days in the river, and had two showers. A white film was left behind through all of that. Not a fan.
