This easy-to-apply, lightweight formulation is non-greasy and melts into skin ensuring a very high, broad, and photostable UVA/UVB protection with an optimal SPF of 50+. 

Suitable for extreme sunshine intensity.

  • Suitable for sensitive or sun-intolerant skin

  • Water resistant
  • Lightweight mattifying fluid for oily and blemish-prone skin

This Anti-shine Gel-Cream is exceptionally high, broad photostable UVA/UVB and Infrared protection. Optimal SPF 50+ protection reinforced against UVA rays (stricter than the European recommendation) thanks to patented filtering system Mexoplex combined with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water.

Also contains Perlite and Zinc Gluconate to ensure anti-shine protection.


Anthelios efficacy has been demonstrated via clinical studies carried out in-vivo on subjects suffering from sun intolerances, particularly those caused by UVA rays. Anthelios products all have a high PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) factor, offering one of the best protections against UVA offered by any brand in the world. The efficacy has been proven by a file of 16 clinical studies carried out by world-renowned expert dermatologists. The brand was also the first laboratory to use Mexoryl XL and Mexoryl SX and the first to use photostable UVA filters in its sun protection. 9/10 of dermatologists would recommend Anthelios.

DOES THE SUN HELP ACNE? - Myths about acne and the sun.

If you have acne-prone skin, you may feel that the sunshine helps to improve it. In fact, some people even believe that the sun can actually ‘burn off’ acne from the skin, encouraging them to use sun beds or spend too much time soaking up the rays. The truth is that over exposing the skin to the sun is damaging to all skin types, including acne-prone, so it should be enjoyed safely and responsibly.

This is due to UVA, UVB and infrared rays that penetrate the skin, causing oxidative stress and damage to our cellular DNA. This can lead to premature ageing such as lines, wrinkles and discolouration, and even more serious health concerns such as skin cancer. It also puts those with acne at greater risk of concerns such as post-acne pigmentation: a term used to describe the dark marks left after a spot or breakout has healed.

Does the sun help acne?
When it comes to the sun and acne, you may wonder if it’s actually a benefit or not. Does staying out in the sunshine help to dull down a breakout, and will applying sunscreen just make things worse? 

Benefits of the sun
This isn’t to say that all sun exposure is bad. The sun is actually one of our body’s major sources of vitamin D that’s responsible for keeping our bones healthy and strong. It also helps us to feel happier as it increases the release of serotonin – the hormone that makes us feel good. Many people with acne may feel that the sunshine improves their skin simply for this reason. When we feel good, many aspects of our health – including our skin – can improve.

Getting the balance right
So how can you enjoy the benefits of the sun while ensuring your skin is adequately protected from damage? The most important and effective way of protecting your skin is by wearing daily broad-spectrum sunscreen. If you’re concerned about sun protection adding additional oil to your skin, then make sure you invest in a formula suited to your skin type. There are now a multitude of sunscreens to try that are matte and non-comedogenic and suitable for blemish-prone skin.

La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range has been tested via clinical studies carried out in-vivo on subjects suffering from sun intolerances, particularly those caused by UVA rays. This showed that Anthelios products all have a high PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) factor. Anthelios Anti-Shine Face Mist, for example, is suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin and suitable for skin that is prone to sensitivity, sun-intolerance or prickly-heat and provides exceptionally high broad, photostable UVA/UVB & Infrared protection.

It’s also important to note that wearing sunscreen doesn’t stop your body from absorbing that all-important vitamin D. Just 15 minutes of time outside, in addition to a healthy balanced diet, will give your body the amount of vitamin D it needs.

Info Leaflet

Before using any skin products, it is important to read the information and follow the instructions on the package.


Find the right suncare for you according to your skin type with our quick and simple guide. From sprays, to sticks, mists and lotions, how can you ensure which sunscreen is best for you? To help you get it right the first time, we’ve created a simple guide to the La Roche-Posay suncare range based on your skin type.

Sunscreen for normal and combination Skin

If you’re looking for a really lightweight broad-spectrum sunscreen to fit seamlessly into your everyday skincare routine, La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Fluid SPF 50+ is the perfect solution. Ideal for normal and combination skin types, it’s practically invisible; it melts instantly into the skin leaving it feeling soft and comfortable without any greasiness or white marks. This makes it the perfect base for makeup and can even be used in place of your usual moisturiser.

Sunscreen for oily skin

If you have oily skin, you probably dread applying sunscreen in fear of it adding further grease and shine to your face. But luckily there are now plenty of options to choose from that are created specifically for oily and blemish-prone skin such as La Roche-Posay’s Anti-Shine SPF 50+. This mattifying fluid not only provides very high protection, but it mattifies the skin with ingredients such as perlite and zinc gluconate.

Sunscreen for dry skin

Dry skin needs a really hydrating facial sunscreen, especially on holiday when sun, sea and chlorine can leave it feeling tight and uncomfortable. La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios Hydrating Cream SPF 50+ is the perfect solution as it leaves a natural glow on the skin while protecting it from UV damage. When using it within your everyday skincare routine, simply miss out your usual moisturiser if layering both together feels too much.

Scalp sunscreen

The scalp is one of the most delicate areas on the body but often gets forgotten when we’re applying sunscreen. The hairline and parting are also tricky areas to protect as traditional creams and sprays can leave the roots greasy and stained white. La Roche-Posay has solved this issue with its Anthelios Anti-Shine Face Mist SPF50 – a moisturising water-resistant spray that quickly absorbs and dries on the skin without leaving white marks. It’s also ideal for bald spots or thinning areas. It can even be applied over makeup, and acts as a setting spray if you want to top up your protection throughout the day.


Before using any skin product, it is important to read the information and follow the instructions on the package.

Avoid exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day.  Keep children under age 3 out of the sun.


  • Shake well before use.
  • Do not spray directly on your face. Spray on palms before applying.
  • Apply 30 minutes before exposure and reapply frequently and generously every two hours to maintain protection especially after swimming, perspiring or towelling.

Spritz your body with a soothing and cooling spring water mist throughout the day to keep hydrated and cool.

Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product because it does not provide you 100% protection.



  • Over-exposure to the sun is dangerous.
  • Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight.
  • Do not stay long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product because it does not provide you 100% protection.

Keep children well covered and ensure they are wearing a hat, t-shirt and sunglasses.
