Well, lately I’m really into skincare and I wanted to share my review of the Anthelios Age Correct SPF50. I’m not in my 20s anymore and of course, I need and want to start taking care of my skin.
You can find my current daily skin care routine here. Remember that not everything that might work for me is the right product for you. So always ask your dermatologist about anything you’re planning to put on your face.
So I’m going to start by telling you what it is and the benefits of this product.
What is it?
Anthelios Age Correct is an ultra-light cream that hydrates the skin for 24 hours. Has an oil-free formula with a velvety finish. Also hypoallergenic and non comedogenic. It has a daily anti-aging protection that not only protects but also corrects the signs of aging in 4 weeks. It has broad-spectrum protection and dermatological corrective active ingredients, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide and Phe Resorcinol.
It gives you protection, thanks to the new CELLOX-B3 TECHTM with Mexoryl XL, designed to limit damaged induced by UVB/UVA rays, IR-A and pollution. Provides broad-spectrum protection. Also limits the adhesion of pollution particles to the skin and protects against oxidative stress induced by pollution and IR-A.
It also corrects. Anti-aging efficacy that corrects wrinkles, blemishes and elasticity with visible results in 4 weeks, thanks to a complex of dermatological corrective active ingredients.
There’s some science behind. After many decades of studies, La Roche Posay has developed a deep understanding of the impact of UV radiation on the skin, especially when it is associated with pollution and oxidation, causing invisible and visible damage such as dark spots, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
It is important to know that I do have rosacea, dermatitis and sensitive skin, so my cheeks usually tend to be and look red and sometimes they peel and itch. And I also have very noticeable dark circles and probably over-pigmented eye area. If anything, I’ve always complained that I looked like a zombie. Always felt like my skin made me look dead and dulle, it basically had no life.
It’s also important to note that not long before I started trying this product, I started following my skin care routine, so many improvements on my skin might come from that too.
After trying it for 21 days, my skin feels alive, soft and with less age wrinkles and blemishes. Is not that I have much but the ones I have are slowly disappearing. I feel like my face is finally loved, more hydrated and also clean… basically improved… to the point that I’m starting to appear on my Instagram stories with no filters.
And of course, when it comes to sun protection, this product has delivered. I don’t go out much lately unless I need to go to the pharmacy or any store nearby. But I have felt my face protected. Of course, we can’t forget it does also provide protection from the blue light from my computer and phone.
It doesn’t feel oily and it gives my skin a very velvety soft feel when I apply it. And unless it’s waaaaay too hot outside… I can adventure myself and say it helps my big forehead to not sweat as much. Also it doesn’t leave your face looking white, which is a plus.
Do I recommend this product? Yes, I totally recommend the Anthelios Age Correct. It’s been great for me since I have mixed/sensitive skin. Doesn’t feel oily or makes me sweat as much and it feels soft and velvety. Makes my skin feel and look more alive, with less blemishes and wrinkles. But I always also recommend that you talk to your dermatologist about using it.
Pd. I know my last picture doens’t look like it improved, but sadly, during the week of the last day I slept terrible and for some reason, most likely stress, my rosacea decided to say HI I’m here, in a very strong way. The best difference you can see in the middle.
