It’s Friday, and the sun is shining

There’s nothing like getting 329 spam comments to start the weekend off with an bang. (And this is before we’ve even finished our first soy latte!)

This week the sun has been shining and it’s feeling more and more like spring here in Northern Nevada, which means we need to take that extra step to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. We used to think that foundation or moisturizer with an SPF was enough, but really it’s not. (However, they do give us extra protection, so definitely use them when you can).

For complete broad spectrum sun protection, there’s nothing that compares to La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX. Using a revolutionary formula containing Mexoryl SX and Parsol 1789, Anthelios SX provides the highest daily photo-stable UVA protection available in the US.

Anthelios SX La Roche-Posay

Anthelios SX is a light moisturizer with a non-greasy texture that’s fragrance free and dermatologist-tested. It does not smell like sunscreen, look like sunscreen, or make our face feel like a greased-up sticky mess, as most sunscreens do.

We got ours at our dermatologist’s office for $29. It’s also available to purchase on the La Roche-Posay site.

Seriously, girls. Don’t leave home without it.

  • I really want to try this, can you buy it in a store too or just on-line?

  • HI Ann,

    I got it at my dermatologist’s office but it is available at select ULTA and CVS stores. Check the ‘store locator’ on the La Roche-Posay site for a location near you.

    Good luck,

  • Hello,
    Please can you tell me if I can use this on my face now. I had a meduim face peel ten days ago and need good protection since I am very pink now.
    Kindest regards Pat

  • Pat- there isn’t a better sunscreen to use after a peel! But even with Anthelios SX, you still need to wear a wide brim hat and stay out of direct sunlight.

    Take care,

  • I saw this at the drugstore recently but wasn’t sure if it was worth it. I’m looking for a new sunscreen but doesn’t have that sunscreen scent if you know what I mean. do you girls who use this notice that distinctive sunscreen scent when you use this?

  • HI Janey, I have not yet tried the new Anthelios 40. I’ll have to add it to my list of products to try!
