Summer Skincare Essentials - La Roche Posay-healthynrelaxed-01

So excited it’s finally summer! I mean, what’s not to love? 聽The gorgeous weather, the聽festivities, the bright colours, …..聽aaaaaaand no winter jacket! My only pet peeve with summer is that i tend to breakout more 馃檨 .聽On the plus side, i have found great products that protect my skin from the sun and also prevent breakouts. Below are my summer skincare essentials from La Roche Posay

La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF 60 | $29CDN

Summer Skincare Essentials - La Roche Posay-healthynrelaxed-02

I have been using this sunscreen for over 2 years and it has never failed me. I initially came by the product when i bought La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo box set. At first try, it was very smooth to touch, and it absorbed rather quickly when applied.

I love the product because it is聽not greasy and doesn’t give the infamous ‘ashy’ look though the SPF is quite high. Due聽to its $$$, I only聽apply the sunscreen to my face and neck area, and it usually lasts about a year.

These 3 amigos work together to protect my skin after sun exposure. I will review the products in the order that i apply them.

Posthelios After-Sun Face & Body
I use this product after a shower. 聽It is 聽very聽moisturizing with no greasy residue, and it leaves my skin smooth to touch. 聽I only use the product on my body, as i apply the others to my face.

Thermal Spring Water ($5)
I have grown to love this product over the years. The water is infused with antioxidants to ‘soothes and softens‘ and i note that it works best on freshly washed face. It聽comes in an aerosol can and i spray it about an arm length from my face. It eliminates the ‘tightness’ i feel after a wash to keep my face moisturized throughout the day.

Effaclar Duo
I reviewed聽this product in a 聽previous post,聽as the best acne-fighting product i have encountered. I apply it about an hour before heading to bed, so that it fully absorbs into my skin.


Overall, i love the products because they are moisturizing, they protect my skin from sun damage and they never leave a greasy feel.
