La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 50  is paraben free, non perfumed and also transfer proof . It does leave a sheen on the face, which I dont particularly enjoy,but I prefer protection over vanity. All three of us in the family, me, my husband and my daughter use it. When I am applying makeup I dont use this particular spf for my face as it does leave a white cast on the face, so I use another spf for the face.

Weather its for school on weekdays or swimming and other outdoor activites La Roche Posay spf 50 is according to me the best sunscreen for kids.
