La Roche Posay products/routine(10 Posts)
I only use Cicaplast, but I love it, so I'm watching with interest.
Read Caroline Hirons blog - she has advice on the oily AND dehydrated issue, as well some LRP reviews.
I've been using the Redermic eye cream for just over a week but didn't read the instructions properly: I've been using it morning and night (instead of just at night) and the skin under my eyes looks blotchy and irritated. I'm letting it recover before trying again as the reviews on Boots are pretty positive.
A pleasure! I've got some Redermic R - I do think its smoothing but not that amazing. Prefer Hydraluron as an pre moisturiser treatment.
I've never used anything by LRP I don't like. It's magical. Anthelios spray sunscreen is the best sunscreen in the world EVER. In fact, I think it would be my holy grail skin-care product as it feels so nice, NEVER makes me breakout and is just perfect, perfect, perfect for my skin-type. I also love the toleriane moisturizers...they come in three different formulations. I like the 'fluide' for day, under makeup, and the 'riche' one for night. They also have a lovely serum called 'Derm Aox'. It is a very funny colour and smells vaguely medicinal but my skin loves it. I've been using a Bioderma micellar liquid, which I really like, but when it runs out I'm going to try a LRP one.
You might also try jojoba oil. My skin is oily and dehydrated and I use it under nighttime moisturizer and also in the morning before exfoliating cleanser. It's really softening and moisturizing and rich and I SWEAR it will not make you break out or clog pores. Absolutely lovely. A few years ago I would have recoiled in horror at the thought of putting oil on my face but I just can't say enough about it. I have the best skin of my life and I'm 37, so that's saying something .
Unfortunately, no skincare product in the world can shrink the size of your pores. A good primer can minimise their appearance however.
I use and love la Roche posay,and the fact they don't make ridiculous claims makes me like them all the more. I think the physiological cleansing gel might be a good bet for you,it gently cleanses without drying.I really love the hydraphase serum too,really great for dehydrated skin,as is the hydraphase light moisturiser and mask.I think a lot of people rate effaclar mat for oily skin,but I've never used this myself.
Brennan,if you don't mind me asking,which lrp sunscreen do you use,as this is one part of my routine I haven't nailed yet!
Pigtail, it's called 'Anthelios XL Dry-touch spray' and it's SPF 45. I'm in Canada and I think it might be called something slightly different in the UK? I use it every day under makeup (I spray it onto my hand and then apply it like moisturizer). It says it's water-resistant so I use it when swimming too, but re-apply afterwards.
