New to La Roche-Posay's sun care line this summer is Posthelios Melt-in Gel, an after sun moisturizer designed to soothe and moisturize sun exposed skin while helping to minimize burning sensations.
Posthelios is relatively thick in texture, with a clean, warm scent that isn't overpowering. While it is a gel formula, it has a rich texture that is creamy and dense. According to La Roche-Posay, the gel has "10% lipid-replenishing and soothing agents". True to form the gel melts into skin leaving the skin with a noticeable but subtle sheeny layer of lipid based moisture. This product is intended for dehydrated and sun exposed skin, so this intense moisturizing feeling is quite comforting.
I would recommend this product to anyone who has been indulging in the summer sun. While it has the same cooling effect as other post sun balms such as aloe vera, this product also offers lipid based moisture in addition to water based moisture, which is longer lasting.
