When you want your bang for your buck you go for as much as possible in a product, right? Well, if you want the best in sunscreen you go to La Roche-Posay. In La Roche-Posay's Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 you get more than your bang for your buck. Not only is it a anti-aging repairing moisturizer that you wear during the day, but it is also a SPF 30 sunscreen which is the perfect combination that I always think cosmetic companies should be doing in their day products. This product comes form 5 years of research and 13 clinical studies in partnership with dermatologists. New dermatological research in skin has demonstrated the importance of a healthy microbiome: the population of microorganisms found at the skin surface. It has now been discovered that prebiotics can feed the microbiome. The SPF 30 comes from the following sunscreen ingredients: Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 5%, Octisalate 5% and Octocrylene 7%. These are all chemical sunscreens and if you are allergic to any of these do NOT use this product. These are not mineral sunscreens. This product is for all skin types, including sensitive skin.It is oil-free, won’t clog pores and is non-comedogenic. It is also fragrance-free and paraben-free. The product has been allergy tested and Dermatologist tested.
This moisturizer has been formulated with a high concentration of La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water and carefully selected skin care ingredients, Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 helps protect and restore the natural skin barrier for healthy looking skin. Used in conjunction with Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer at night, it has a unique prebiotic action on the skin microbiome. Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 is a daily facial moisturizing lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to hydrate, protect, and help reduce visible redness. This moisturizer with SPF 30 contains:
- Ceramide-3: an essential ceramide naturally found in skin.
- A high concentration of La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water: with hydrating, soothing, and antioxidant properties.
- Glycerin: a moisturizing agent that naturally attracts water to skin.
- Niacinamide: a form of vitamin B3 with soothing properties.
This product has won various awards for its efficacy. It won the Allure 2017 Best of Beauty Award. It also won the Redbook 2017 MVP Best Beauty Award and 2017 Self Approved Beauty Award.
Directions for use: Use as a daily moisturizer to protect against UV rays, apply to the face and neck in the morning. For best results and the most prebiotic benefits, apply the Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer at night. It has an oil-free, lightweight texture that absorbs instantly when applied. The bottle should last about 3 months with everyday use. This product should be worn all year round, yes even during the winter months. There is still sun in the winter and snow actually reflects the sun off of the snow causing sunburn.
I love this product. It goes on easily, absorbs quickly and is the perfect moisturizer for daytime. It is exactly what I have been asking for from companies. A moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30. All skincare companies should have one. Everyone should wear a SPF 30 daily. It is very important for anti-aging purposes to wear this daily. Even during the winter and during rainy days. The sun is always there. Except at night. This product helps to keep aging at bay with the prebiotic microbiome complex. And it actually helps to turn back the clock with its ingredients. It also has Niacinamide, ceramides and thermal water. All of these things together create a nice anti-aging product.

Another great product from them is their ANTHELIOS Clear Skin SPF 60 Sunscreen. It is a Dry Touch Sunscreen, meaning that it applies to the skin, absorbs instantly and you will not feel the sunscreen. This product absorbs pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity, and won't cause breakouts. It has Cell-Ox Shield™ XL antioxidant technology, an optimized combination of UVA/UVB filters chosen for its more synergistic effect to deliver broad-spectrum protection. This product is 100% oil-free, has SPF 60 and has been formulated to be highly wearable, including for those who typically are reluctant to wear sunscreen. It is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. The SPF 60 comes from the following ingredients: Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 15%, Octisalate 5% and Octocrylene 7%. This sunscreen has an optimized combination of UVA/UVB filters chosen for its more synergistic effect to deliver broad-spectrum protection. It also has a powerful antioxidant complex to help protect skin from free radicals caused by UV rays that can cause premature skin aging, thus helping to prevent line and wrinkles. Finally, it has an Anti-Shine complex, which is a combination of Perlite and Silica to absorb pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity.
While developing this unique formula La Roche-Posay looked at the most common excuses for not wearing sunscreen, to ensure ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen would be the right answer, even for those who always have a “good excuse”:
- “Sunscreens cause breakouts”
- CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen is proven non-comedogenic so it won’t cause breakouts.

- “Sunscreens have oily textures”
- CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen is 100% oil-free so it doesn’t feel oily or greasy on skin.

It won the 2017 Allure Best of Beauty Award, the 2016 TotalBeauty.com Honorable Mention Best Face Sunscreen, the 2016 O: The Oprah Magazine Best Beauty Products, the 2016 Real Simple Best Face Sunscreen for Acne-Prone Skin and the 2016 Glamour Best Sunscreen.
