Hello everyone 🙂 today we are going to talk about La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Intense Soothing Care Moisturizer:
Who is it for?
Everyone who wants a very lightweight, non-oily moisturizer that will hydrate and soothe in a very simple way, leaving your skin with a smooth and soft feeling.
What’s good about it?
This great product has been specifically formulated for skin that’s oily or combination, but at the same time sensitive, allergic or prone to redness.
So, those with this skin type will appreciate in particular the lightweight consistency of this moisturizer, which offers just enough hydration for dry areas, yet absorbs quickly and perfectly into your skin without leaving a greasy and uncomfortable feeling.
I love to use it in my evening skincare routine (or even in the morning, during this cold winter days) after a chamomile base toner which will also help to reduce my redness and repair my acne scars.
So it’s an amazing product for combo/oily/prone-to-acne skins, because this moisturizer will give you just enough hydration for your “crazy” skin to layer over spot formulas, strong acne treatments creams or even to put on beneath your makeup.
According to La Roche-Posay official website: “… the formula has intense soothing and moisturizing powers and it is enriched with Glycerine, Shea Butter, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and Neurosensine, an active ingredient which targets coetaneous irritation mechanisms (…)”
Obviously it’s a non-comedogenic product. And it has 0% preservatives, parabens, fragrance, alcohol, colorant and lanolin.
What’s not so good about it?
Personally I don’t like the applicator, and the packaging. The product is dispensed from a pump-action bottle, that seems nice and convenient at first (and it really is when the container is full), but when you clearly see that you have a little amount of product stuck at the bottom of the plastic bag inside the bottle, right then the applicator will stop working. And believe me when I say that open the bottle to collect the last drops of fluid is a nightmare!
This is a great choice for people who don’t have a clue about how to moisturize their oily/combo/prone-to-acne skin and also affordable enough for teens looking for effective skincare. With daily use, you will begin to notice an improvement in skin sensitivity, redness and overall skin discomfort.
