Blurring Lines: La Roche-Posay Anthelios Blur SPF 50

Oooh this is a good one. Especially if you find applying SPF before your make-up a bit of a hassle. Or if you are not wanting to forgo a bb cream on the beach... but you don't want to skimp on the SPF. Now worries, La Roche-Posay have got you covered with this guy: Anthelios Blur SPF 50.

It comes with the all important flip-top and a 40ml tube will set you back €19.50. Its the newest addition to the High Protection SPF line that LRP have and its nice... its funny at first... but it is oh so nice.

Blur is a highly pigmented mousse-textured product, formulated with "unifying pigments" that work to "blur pores and skin defects". The high quality mattifying powders makes this rather nice to use as a primer under your foundation too, if you were so inclined. And although the coverage isn't massively fantastic, I think its enough to slap on to do the school run, or for those lazy beach days.

As I said the actual product formulation is weird. Its very thick and a little tough to get out of the tube, but you don't need a lot as it spreads easily and it dries on the skin fairly quickly, so don't faff about. Get it on. Get it blended, because otherwise you will be left with a bit of an orange ring on your jaw line, this won't happen once you have a tan, or once you have applied a gradual tanner. And even on "pale days" as long as you blend it down your neck a bit you'll be grand. Besides, you need to protect your neck too.

In these pics you can see the before and the after. It took me all of 2 minutes to get it on my skin and blended into my hair line. Watch your eyebrows as they tend to catch and hold on to quite a bit of product. Just use a clean tissue to remove most of the buildup. You don't want to wipe off all your protection...

And one more. Just cos: #smugcow

Coverage isn't high, but your protection with Blur is. SPF 50 and a bit of coverage for €20. And there isn't an oily film or a white mask left behind either. I am liking this a whole lot. I don't know how well dry skinned Gals would get along with this as it is oil free and does contain those mattifying powders.

I am really Really liking La Roche-Posay Anthelios Blur SPF 50. I am liking it so much that I have been wearing it just about every day instead of foundation/bb cream this week and I even got a compliment from my bestie, who sees me everyday and who will tell me if things are looking a bit iffy or if they're looking good...

LRP is available online and in most pharmacies. And it we are going to have as good a summer as I suspect we are going to have, then you should definitely check them out for your SPF needs. I'm keen on getting my hands on Anthelios XL Protective Oil next. Just to test on the kids like.
