Welcome to ‘Til The Last Drop: a bi-monthly column in which I, CF Beauty Editor, Olivia Bennett, share my review of a favourite cult product that I (truly) use to the last drop. This week’s featured product is La Roche-Posay Anthelios Age Correct SPF50+
I’m messaged by friends and family, at all hours of the day, with recommendation requests for everything from “the budget gel moisturiser that works with combination skin” to “the hard-hitting eye cream that will make Botox a last resort”, and queries on “whether X, Y, and Z from the current trending brand are REALLY worth the hype”.
Such incessant inquiries sparked this column, where I’ll cover best-selling names alongside under-the-radar brands to note. You’ll hear about blow-the-budget products that live up to their hefty price tag and the purse-friendly steals which I unashamedly turn to time and again.
No need to text me, I’ll be sharing all my intel with you right here every other week. Tune in.
SPF formulations have come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, but finding an SPF that suits sensitive complexions, doesn't pill, and doesn't result in pesky breakouts can be a tall order. We know daily SPF is a non-negotiable, and this La Roche-Posay formula ticks all the boxes. Application is seamless, feeling as rich and luxurious as your favourite moisturiser, and leaving no trace of white cast. Like the whole Anthelios range, it's laden with the brand’s signature thermal spring water, which helps to soothe and soften skin, making it an excellent choice for all skin types. This intelligent SPF is also laced with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to intensly hydrate and plump, prepping your skin for the rest of your make-up regime. Also available in a tinted version for extra coverage, I will be packing this for my next hot weather jaunt.
