Waaaah! La Roche posay physiological cleanser is no more. Alternatives?

I was on the long skincare threads and transformed my skincare.
Now I can't get my favourite cleanser which was LRP a physiological.
I have started getting big awful spots again (well, I've had two this week after none for two months) despite the rest of my routine stating the same!

Can anyone recommend an alternative please? I have combo skin prone to cystic acne type spots.

Good thread, I also use this and tried to get it in my local Boots.
Why would they discontinue this?
I've used an Avene one that was quite good.

WHAT??? This is TERRIBLE news, I have used the Physiological Cleansing gel religiously for two years! What will they replace it with?!

LRP say that the replacement for the Physiological cleansing gel is the new Make up remover Micellar water gel. I've been using it for a few days now and it seems ok.

Thanks, I will get a bottle of that when my current physiological gel runs out. Only cleanser my skin has really loved EVER

I am gutted.

So awful having spots again after a lovely break.
I might try the Micellar water then but there are at least 2 .....physiological and Efflaclar i think?

Which one do you use please tarka ?

If it's any help the derm had the physiological micellar water.

They did what?

Just when I need a new one.

I just use the LRP Effaclar face wash - tis brilliant and (along with the Effaclar Duocream) keeps my hormonal and upset skin spot free. Takes my make up off fine.

I think I'll try this one

There is an identical thread to this already!

Dermalogica Ultracalming is very similar.

Coasting it you're right, there is! So my above post makes not much sense - I thought it was the other thread. Was at the derm on Friday. She used to have the physiological cleanser in the bathrooms, (in case she needs you to remove your makeup), now she has the Micellar water.

Ah! I understand your post now lurking

The rosaliac gel is very similar to me.

I have been using LRP Micellar Gel like AwkwardSquad. It makes my eyes really sore so I use a cheap eye makeup remover separately. Their Physiological cleanser never made my eyes react sad

Big bottles of Garnier Micellar Water have been on sale for €5 in Penney's in Ireland for the last few months. I can't knock it tbh. Maybe Primark in the UK are doing a similar offer?

Oh no!! What a blow!! My skin was transformed when I found it 2 years ago. Thank you for posting the news and letting me come to terms with it in the comfort of my own home rather than in the aisle of boots!!
