One of the most important things for the summer is sun protection. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Hydrating Lotion Eco-Tube SPF50+ was the body sunscreen that I used for my summer trip in Greece. For the face, I used Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Fluid SPF50+, and it works very well for sensitive skin.

I was searching for sunscreen products from La Roche-Posay. I found many types of products with different functions. One of the reasons why I decided to take this Anthelios Hydrating Lotion Eco-Tube SPF50+ is about the packaging. It has an eco-friendly tube that uses less 45% of plastic and this formula is friendly to the sea and marine life.
How is my feeling after using it?
Let’s talk about eco-packaging. I like the idea, but I found it is a bit hard to press. After using for a few times, the paper tube creases. I put it in my beach bag with any beach things. After a long day, I took it out and saw many black dots on the packaging. I want to say it is easy to get dirty. Anyway, I do not mind about these things. I still feel good to help the environment.
It is a lotion texture with yellow color. I feel like my skin is a bit shiny after blending, something like small glitter on my skin. It keeps the skin hydrated same as the brand claim.
I am an Asian, and I am not so sensitive to the sun. Then I will write here the result from my husband. He also used this lotion, and we went to beaches at the same time/period. He applied 30 minutes before go out and repeat every 2 hours. He quit strict about it because he has sensitive skin, easy to gets burn. The result is he gets red (for sure) and still feels a little bit of pain but only when he has over sunbathing. I would say more than 4 hours. After all, nothing worse happened, the summer of last year he couldn’t sleep overnight because of pain (it was a different sunscreen product).
A week after the trip, his skin peels off as usual. But I would say he survives this summer because of Anthelios Hydrating Body Lotion SPF50+
