Specifically designed for sensitive skin, this invisible, anti-shine sun protection mist has an SPF of 50 including a high UVA protection. No need to touch or even rub the skin, the patented molecule ‘Airlicium’ leaves oily-prone skin shine free. Previously used by NASA in space science, this anti- sweat, anti-shine and super light molecule - composed of 99% air and 1% Silica - has the unique ability to absorb up to 100x its weight in sebum and proactively controls sources of shine for an all-day clean skin sensation and matte finish.

TheChicGeek says, “Summer hasn’t even started and this could be in the running for best suncare product of the year already.
Firstly, I’ve said 'summer', but you should use an SPF all year around. One of the many reasons guys don’t use enough sun protection on their face is 1) It isn’t included in their moisturiser - which it should be - and 2) To apply another or separate SPF product on top when you look outside and it looks a bit grey, you can't be bothered. I’ve been there and I’m ginger! Laziness is killing us! Okay, that’s a bit dramatic, but it’s probably making us look older. Protect your skin from the sun and you’ll stay younger looking for longer. That’s the superficial side. The other side is, we love the sun, but long term damage can have serious consequences.
This new product from La Roche-Posay is so easy to use you finding yourself asking, ‘is that it?’.
You spray 15cm away from the face, eyes and mouth closed, and you’re covered with a very high sun protection. The added advantage is you cover your eyelids, which are often overlooked, get burnt easily and the skin is very thin.
The matt, anti-shine finish is good and there’s no sensation of having applied anything onto your skin. It's so light. It’s 75ml, so can go into hand language, and I would always buying a better/more targeted sun product for your face.
The only negative is the branding. The name is complicated and the box and can just blends into the rest of the suncare and beauty market. This deserves better and more distinctive branding.
I think this is, by far, the easiest and fastest suncare product I've ever used, and with an SPF 50 it's a huge thumbs up from me”.
