La Roche-Posay Hydraphase SPF 20

La Roche Posay hydraphase SPF 20A sunscreen that feels like it’s barely there. Now that it’s getting colder and grey, feel like we can get away with less protection factor. This one is perfect for my combination skin. It smells nice, think talc and floral. Reminds me of Paul Smith’s -Rose. As lovely as the fragrance is, might be a problem for sensitive skin types. It also contains plant oils so might not suit oily skin types either.

Ingredients: Avobenzone (3%), Octisalate (5%), Octocrylene (7%), Other: Water, Isononyl Isononanoate, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Diisopropyl Sebacate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Sucrose Tristearate, Polysorbate 61, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Sodium Hyaluronate, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Triethanolamine, Dimethiconol, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil, Disodium EDTA, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

The product is a white fluid, dispenses from a pump nozzle. It doesn’t have that powdery/gritty finish nor does it leave a white film, easy to apply, sits under makeup well. At £14-17, for me it is worth every penny.

Available at Boots, Escentual
