All that aside though, I had been curious about the anti-dullness formula for a while and I also noticed that the L’oreal UV Perfect sunscreen had been repackaged. So, I was wondering if they had also reformulated it.
So when my current tube was on its last legs, I took a gamble on this anti-dullness formula. It comes in the usual box and tube except there isÂ little purple square at the bottom with the words “anti-dullness”.
The texture of the sunscreen is the same, creamy but there is a purplish tint to the cream. This purple tint, although looking impossibly ghastly, actually serves to counteract yellowness and dullness. The minute I apply it on, my skin colour actually looks quite radiant and even. So, I don’t even really need foundation on some days. Awesome or what? When they say it makes a great makeup base, they aren’t kidding.
I’m not sure if it has been reformulated but I find that this sunscreen is slightly less greasy in that it doesn’t cause my skin to get oily after a while. The previous one I used (transparent) did tend to get a little greasy after a couple of hours. But this one doesn’t leave any shine.
I’ve noticed that the price of this L’oreal UV Perfect sunscreen appears to have dropped because most places are selling it at under RM30 now. This sunscreen works the best thus far for me and I’m happy that its cheap and effective and I’m never using another!
Pros: Does what it promises, skin looks more radiant and even toned

can it be used on the face?
PB says: Yes, its meant for the face
I’m still worried about it breaking me out. I’ve heard so much reviews about it, I’m tempted to try but I’m a HUGE wimp.
PB says: Heh… if you already have something working for you, stick with it.

Haha. I’m using anti-dullness too. It can be a moisturiser. So when I’m gonna be outdoors all day, I just skip my moisturiser and use that. But when I’m working I’ll need to apply my moisturiser first. The air-con at my work place is so strong it dries out my skin!
For the anti-dullness effect. Wow… My manager and friends commented that I look more radiant and less tired.
I’ve been using it for 4 days now. haha. So I don’t really know if it will give me breakouts.
In Singapore they are selling them at under $17. The usual price was around… $22+.
PB says: I’m getting the same comments too, and I find it makes an awesome makeup base as it evens out the tone before the foundation goes on. And you are getting a good price too. I think they must have revised prices.
Hi there, where can i buy this product in US?
From last info this product is not available in the USA
i’m using this too 🙂 love the anti-dullness effect!
btw, just wondering, do we really need to reapply sunblock after a few hours?
PB says: Yay and the experts say we must reapply. But because I already have makeup on, I don’t and I usually only reapply if I’m spending a lot of time in the sun. If I’m in the office or at home, then I just apply once on face and arms.
Sounds like a great find. I’m now tempted to try it out, especially when you said it’s not greasy. I need oil-free products! :p
PB says: Its not oil free either but it works for me some how…
I can’t use it. It feels abit heavy on my face. Too sensitive to the texture thats why =P I’m sticking to my Biotherm.
PB says: Yeah some people did say so though I didn’t experience it. To each our own! 🙂
PrÃªt-Ã -Porter Prostitute says
what product do you use on your arms? banana boat and all that? *blur* i think i should start applying sunblock on my arms as well already. do you apply it after body lotion?
PB says: Sunblock is always the last one to go on your skin. I use the Australian Cancer Council sunscreen for the body but I reckon you could use any. I find Coppertone too smelly but Banana Boat is ok.

Hello this is a bit out of the blue, but what do you think of Clinique Super City Block Ultra Protection and pharma-cosmetics sunscreen such as La Roche Posay?
@LT SH : I haven’t tried both brands you have mentioned. I have read good things about both though. I believe the Clinique Super City sunblock contains Titanium Dioxide which is a physical blocker as does La Roche Posay. I might check it out some time but not so soon. Thanks.
i’m also using L’oreal UV Perfect SPF 50, its so perfect for my skin, since it doesn’t dry out my skin.
Hi, I couldn’t find this sunscreen anywhere to purchase. Can you provide some leads?
I’m in Asia and its available in most pharmacies. I’m not sure where else it is available in other parts if the world or if its even available in Europe and USA.
Hi Paris B,
I’m very curious on whether i really need to apply sunscreen before my BB cream? My BB cream already has SPF 50 PA+++. I’m using Missha PC BB cream for 3 weeks now and it works wonders on my skin! Even out my skin tone and it definitely is a perfect cover (as the name represents) without applying foundation on top of it. I’m pretty interested to try this Loreal anti-dullness sunscreen and im wondering will it give me a cakey look after applying BB cream on top of it?
Thanks in advance ya, i really love the tips u are giving on your blog. Appreciate it loads!
If you buy the official spiel, no you don’t need a separate sunscreen because a BB Cream covers everything. I’m glad BB Creams work for you – they don’t for me 🙂
Hai I am using l’oreal products fro the past 3 years. Now i have bought both day cream and uv perfect spf50. Now Im confused. Both of them need to be wear together or must wear only one of them? Because some said we need to apply the day cream follow by the uv perfect. Which one is the right method? Hope u will reply asap. Thankxx
UV Perfect is a sunscreen. Sunscreen is the last thing to go on your face. So apply your moisturizer and only then apply sunscreen.
I wonder if we need to use make up removal after using this suncreen? since it’s said to be a make up base also
I don’t always but there is a school of thought that recommends the use of a makeup remover to remove sunscreen of any sort especially the waterproof ones.
Hi, does this sunscreen water resistant? Ive checked their website but they didnt mention about that..
Paris B says
Gosh, I haven’t used L’Oreal for so many years, I can’t say for sure. My personal preference now is Allie sunscreen which is water resistant and available at Watson’s. It’s much better!
I really wonder if you put 1 teaspoon of this sunscreen for your face? If so it will finish within one week, I am currently loving this sunscreen but worry tht I do t apply enough, can you show us how much you apply for the face ?
I don’t use this one anymore as I’ve found better less oily sunscreens in the market. You can read my other sunscreen reviews here. As for application, I squeeze some on my finger and apply to each part of my face – forehead, cheeks, nose and chin to make sure its fully covered. 1 teaspoon is ideal but its too much for everyday.
In Australia, just being release one for oily and combination skin, it is so much lighter than the original version, try it if you can.
Am currently using this sunscreen and BB cream with SPF25 protection on top of it. Will I still benefit from the SPF50 protection from this loreal sunscreen?
Thanks for your advice. 🙂
Paris B says
Am not an expert but I would say it should be alright because it goes on first and your BB Cream goes on on top. General rule of thumb but there are things like ingredients which may conflict but I’m not good at gauging that like some others.
hi this loreal will be the top list to try. I’m still wondering, is this water resistant? Do I need to remove using milk cleanser or just simply using facial wash is enough??
