Review: La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Tone Correcting Primer with Mineral Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin with SPF 50 @LaRochePosayUSA

Truthfully, having read a few reviews before getting this product, I was a little nervous that this would turn my face orange, but it didn't.

First a few comments:
  • It was extremely thick and I had a little difficulty squeezing some out of the tube
  • The shade is a medium shade that would not work on very fair people
  • There was no obvious scent - a definite plus
  • Spread nicely on skin and could be worn alone
  • Definitely more CC cream than primer
I have skin color that most cosmetic companies call "light" - not very pale, or medium. So this cream was a little bit dark on me, but only a little. This cream was very thick, and rich, and only had the slightest hint of a silicone feel. Honestly, I thought it looked great on its own. The fact that it's a mineral sunscreen is great - no irritation like you get with regular sunscreen - and it has a fabulous 50 SPF. I have very sensitive skin and was really happy that this didn't cause any itching or irritation. It is a tiny bit dark on me, so I'm sure I'll wear it way more in the summer. This is a great product. Now if only this product was cruelty free, sadly it is not and I won't be able to purchase a replacement after this is gone.

Beauty boxes I subscribe to – purchased a full year membership to Goodbeing & Lip Monthly (had deeply discounted prices). I’ll still be getting the other three boxes every month in addition to yearly subscriptions:

Ipsy - generous sample size and sometimes full size items, great box
Boxycharm - my favorite box, all full size items worth over $100
Lip Monthly - 4-5 full size items with 1 item that is not for lips, great bag
GoodBeing Box - this is one of my new favorite boxes

Recently cancelled:
Allure Beauty Box
Birchbox - a great starter box where you can discover great products and occasionally get a full size item

Freebie sites I belong to:

Influenster – when you first join you are more likely to get a box than later on; I almost never
BzzAgent – they politely ask you if you want to join a campaign, I get more from this site than Influentster
