La Roche Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer with Sunscreen

If I’m going to wear primer I might as well wear one with SPF 50.

Hells to the yes on a little La Roche Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer with Sunscreen.

La Roche Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer contains a whooping SPF 50 sunscreen as well as a whole host of facial benefits. The primer Gods dropped this into our laps and dubbed it pure perfection.

Loaded with powerful antioxidants this sweet little primer corrects the signs of aging as well as protects skin from aging with an SPF 50.

The colorless, lightweight formula fills in and smoothes fine lines, wrinkles and pores creating younger-looking skin while mattifying it and prepping it for makeup.

Powerful Cell-Ox Shield Antioxidant Complex with Senna Alata, a tropical leaf extract defends skin cells for protection against free-radicals caused by the sun.

It just sounds so perfect.

I have a tear in my eye.

The price?

A mere $39.50.

Available now at Ulta and Ulta.com

I need it.

    This looks amazing, I can’t wait to get it! Hopefully it will be avilable in Canada, but La Roche Posay products usually are 😀 It looks like a primer that my ultra-sensitive skin might be be able to tolerate! *totally hyped up*

    I already use and love their moisturizer and sunscreen. I probably don’t need this primer for the “anti-aging” effects but I think it’s great that there’s a brand that’s not messing around with SPF 15 and making people feel like that’s sufficient sun protection.

    Just ordered from Ulta. Im a sunscreen FREAK, i always use at least spf 50, and anthelios is my fave sunscreen. I cant wait to try this!

    Muse, I’ve always wanted to know: is the SPF in products such as primer and moisturizer still effective after I’ve layered on the rest of my makeup? The last thing I want to do is skimp on the sun protection come summer time in the south! Thank you!

      Not really in my experience rainbow. for example, powder foundation that contains an SPF 15…you’d need to apply A TONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN of powder for it to be effective. Plus this is a sunscreen not a sunblock. so I do always suggest proper UVA and UVB sun protection prior to applying other products.

    Ooooo… Muse, what is the sunscreen ingredient in it? Is it Mexoryl? I hope so cuz that stuff likes my skin… 🙂 This sounds AWESOME.

    I’ve been using L’Oreal Sublime Sun for over a week now as both my sunscreen and primer. I’m loving it it and it’s around $11.

    I just found this at CVS, had a $5 coupon so I got this lol, it is amaaaazing! It feels like a thicker version of smashbox primer or that chaffing gel, you can’t even tell that it has a potent stable broad spectrum SPF!! ^.^
