La Roche-Posay - My Experience
La Roche-Posay – Products I Have Tried
Always a fan of good skin care and always on the lookout for a good skin care product I was eager to try La Roche-Posay. I have read and heard so many good reviews of this range but I really believe in trying products myself before passing judgement. So here you have it, my take on a few products from La Roche-Posay
Hydraphrase Intense Legere Moisturiser
Intensive Rehydrating Care
An amazing light but seriously hydrating moisturiser which is perfect for sensitive dehydrated skin. It softens, smoothes and hydrates but leaves no greasy residue on the skin. It is so suitable for people who get clogged pores and suffer from congested skin. A light texture which is absorbed easily. The only problem I have is that it is a pump dispenser and I predict having to cut the tube in half to get at least a quarter which will be trapped!
La Roche Posay Hydraphrase Intense Serum
Concentrated Rehydrating Gel
Beautifully effective serum for dry skin. A lot of similar serums sit on the skin and leave a greasy residue as opposed to being easily absorbed. This absorbs very quickly, is light & very effective for dry dehydrated skin. I found it worked really well when used with La Roche Posay Hydraphrase Intense Legere moisturiser. 3 or 4 pumps are more than enough for the face and neck before moisturiser. I have found that some similar products ‘over load’ the skin, clog pores and leave the skin too greasy for applying foundation. This is not a problem here: apply with finger tips, allow to absorb for 10 minutes and follow with moisturiser: foundation goes on with ease and stays put! A lovely, effective serum which is perfect for dry and sensitive skin.
La Roche Posay Eau
Thermal Spring Water
I thought thermal waters and sprays were another gimmicky add-on for my skin care routine until I used this: who would pay for a water spray and what could it do??? It is perfect for dry, sensitive skin which is prone to break-outs. I use it all the time but especially before cleansing, before moisturising in the morning and last thing at night before my night treatment. It feels lovely on the skin, has a cooling effect and seems to prevent break outs which I think can be attributed to the presence of selenium. I’ll be using this again with my Hydraphrase Intense Legere Moisturiser and La Roche Posay Hydraphrase Intense Serum
Over all my experience of these products a have been good. This is a gentle bt effective skin care range. I fully intend on trying more products from the range.
