La Roche-Posay offers sensitive skin sufferers a go-to product guide for the festival season

With over 30 years’ research experience, La Roche-Posay knows there is no pause button for sensitive skin and that the discomfort that comes with sensitivity can often get in the way of plans. La Roche-Posay offers sensitive skin sufferers several product suggestions that will give them the support and protection they need, to make the most of their festival experience.


As the festival season runs throughout the warm summer months, it is particularly important to protect your skin from the harmful effects caused by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.

La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios Fresh Invisible Mist is its first high protection micro-diffusion mist, for hands-free application, making it perfect for on-the-go SPF protection. With a simple spritz, skin is protected against the aging and damaging effects of sunlight, pollution and infrared induced damages, preserving a healthy look.

Delivered as a micro-diffused hydrating mist, which can even be worn over make-up, its high UVA-UVB protection is invisibly misted over skin with no need to rub or even touch the skin – a gift for sensitive complexions! Skin is instantly protected, cooled, hydrated and refreshed.

EFFACLAR DUO (+) SPF 30 (RRP: €18.50)

Effaclar Duo (+) SPF 30 is La Roche-Posay’s latest product innovation within its Effaclar range and a “must-have” festival essential for those with acne, oily and blemish prone skin.

Combining the efficacy of award-winning, anti-imperfection formula, Effaclar Duo (+), along with added SPF 30 protection, La Roche-Posay’s new Effaclar Duo (+) SPF 30 works to treat and heal blemish-prone skin, while shielding it from the adverse effects of the sun’s UV rays, while soaking up the festival atmosphere.


La Roche-Posay Micellar Water Ultra is the ultimate festival product, where running water is not readily available. This one-step cleanser will remove all traces of dirt & make-up in a few simple sweeps with a cotton pad and does not require rinsing with water.

The La Roche-Posay Micellar Water Ultra range caters for several skin-types, including sensitive, oily and reactive skin, meaning each solution is tailored for optimal efficacy.


Dehydration and heat exposure can cause lips to become dry and irritated. Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Stick, offers ultra-high protection against the harmful effects of both UVA and UVB rays. It contains Thermal Spring Water and helps lock-in moisture and stop lips becoming dry and chapped.


Soothing Thermal Spring Water with its therapeutic properties is another way to keep skin refreshed, particularly throughout long hot festival days.

Its minimalist formula relieves itching sensations and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

This handbag sized thermal water spray has multi-purpose benefits; a light spritz to hydrate partied-out skin won’t interfere with foundation or mascara to keep you looking fresh during the day. It can be used on the face and body; it will awaken your skin leaving it feeling refreshed for the weekend.
