I've literally around twenty something sunscreens for my face and usually they either give me a super oily layer, a white sheen that's just annoying, or they just break me out cause I have sensitive acne-prone skin. Anthelios though has been amazing on my skin, it sinks right into the skin in a minute, doesn't feel heavy at all, and has not broken me out or give me an oily face so far! I've been using it every morning for 3 months and recently picked up the anthelios spray sunscreen and re-apply that on top of it every 2-3 hours and it still hasn't made my skin feel clogged or broken me out! So I'd say it works wonderfully!Read more

Over-exposure to the sun is dangerous. Do not stay in the sun for too long; even while using a sunscreen product as it does not provide you with 100% protection.
Apply the sunscreen just before exposure. Re-apply frequently and generously to maintain protection, especially after swimming, perspiring, or towelling. For external use only.
