The world-class La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen has won awards. It absorbed into my skin like a thin day cream.

This one is for you if you require your sun protection to be entirely undetectable (i.e., no sheen) OR if you're seeking for a sunscreen that doubles as a makeup primer. It has no smell, weighs nothing, and offers SPF 40 protection.

 Probiotics, niacinamide, and highly concentrated rice extract help to soften skin and minimize the look of fine wrinkles. Oxybenzone and octinoxate, two irritant compounds, are absent from this "organic" chemical sunscreen.
