Its main ingredient is titanium dioxide that, in other products, usually gives you a ghostly opaque appearance. Not with this product, if you blend it in properly. Plus, it doesn't feel greasy or heavy and absorbs well. Yet, you'll get plenty of protection (the SPF is 50) from both UVA and UVB, which contribute to skin cancer and skin aging.
In addition, the product contains antioxidants -- they are plant derived -- which add another layer of skin protection since the sun's rays also lead to the production of damaging free radicals in the skin.
When I've tried some other sunscreen products on the market, I found that they would contribute to me breaking out or they would irritate my skin. That was not the case with Anthelios 50 Mineral.
Sure, the retail price for this product is steep: around $30 or so. But, I'm holding a sweepstakes where three people could each win a bottle of Anthelios 50 Mineral. All you have to do is post here where you would love to travel to use the sunscreen. And include your email address, twitter handle or FB info. (Please do not post your mailing address.) I'll randomly draw the winners and contact those who won. The contest ends midnight, March 17, 2013.
It's only open to those 18 years old, and who have a U.S. mailing address.
