Having the correct sun lotion for your skin type on your face makes the world of difference - each year we're seeing revolutionary types of sun lotion and some brands typically French brands are getting these fluids down to a T. La Roche Posay are storming the skincare world and as a big fan of their Serozinc and Effaclar Duo I was excited to try their sun lotion for the face.

Suitable for sensitive skins and sun intolerant skin types this ultra light fluid helps for normal to combination skins as well. It dries to a matte dry finish which I think is what helps set this apart from using a body sun lotion. We've all been there - on holiday using the left over of the sun lotion on our faces then wondering why our skin is breaking out. Body products aren't meant for the face and sun lotions are included too.

This sun lotion comes out in a light liquid that can be quickly and easily rubbed into the skin - it feels slightly tacky at first but dries pretty quickly especially if you intend to put makeup on over the top. The Mexoplex (a chemical suncream, yes I had to google this) and Mexoryl XL which provides a high broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB. This means this sun lotion covers all types of rays protecting you on a big scale. This product also contains La Roche Posay's thermal spring water which allows it to be nourishing on the skin too. 

I find this works really well for being a lightweight sun lotion that works specifically for your skin to allow it to not clog your pores with sun lotion. Sun lotion for the face is so crucial to help reduce wrinkles and sun damage so I'm fully fledging the use of sun lotion especially during the summer months. For only £12.75 at Boots currently [LINK] and normally £17 it's really worth it as you only use a small amount each day too!
