La Roche-Posay skincare

la roche posay skincare

The La Roche-Posay is a French brand that has been getting beauty bloggers and skincare enthusiasts buzzing for a while now so it was only a matter of time before I stepped up, slathered on and put my two cents in. La Roche-Posay is a dermatologically advanced skincare brand that cater for all skin types but particularly target its products for those who suffer from sensitive skin. Available online and in Boots, they boast a scarily extensive range of products for the face and body, and every ailment possible, so there is bound to be an eye cream or moisturiser for you!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo* (£13) is one of those products that has been getting praise left, right and centre recently so I was very keen to trial it myself and see if I concur with the blanket adoration. And I do! The main role of this serum-like cream is to correct skin imperfections and unclog blocked pores to prevent or control spot breakouts. It really is an amazing little product and the few breakouts that I did use to suffer from have been dramatically reduced and any current spots have literally been banished away. I am currently using this most days and my skin feels purified, smooth and wonderfully clear.

La Roche-Posay Hyraphase Intense Masque* (£15.50) is a soothing rehydration masque, ideally used once a week, to keep skin’s water levels topped up and give your complexion a boost of moisture. The hyaluronic acid fragments within this lightweight gel-like cream infuse and retain water in the skin for optimal hydration and the La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring water works at soothing and calming the skin. Even after just ten minutes I really feel the positive effects of this masque and my skin feels plump, hydrated and soft. It is a great masque to use when you just need to give your skin a touch of TLC.

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Eyes* (£15) has all the similar hydrating loveliness as the masque but this little beauty is designed specifically for the delicate and sensitive eye area. It has a gorgeously silky, soothing formula that gives puffy eyelids a dose of energising caffeine and the clever Thermal Spring water helps combat dark circles and dehydration lines. Used after my Effaclar Duo, this completes my perfect skin-loving combination and has left my eyes feeling revived and cared for.

    I tried the Effalcar Duo and i thought it broke me out but i think it was actually Estee Lauders advanced night repair that did it as i was using them together so i think i will try it by itself this time and hope it works 🙂

    I've tried the Hyraphase Intense Masque and really like it, I'm keen to try out some other bits so thank you for sharing this. Think I might make a purchase of the Effaclar Duo!

    The Effaclar duo is one of my all time favourite skin care products! I have written a full review on my blog! Really like the sound of the mask though!

    I'm a huge fan of LRP skin care. I use Effaclar cleansing gel on days I'm wearing a foundation and Serozinc + Effaclar Duo every evening. Sometimes even multiple times a day if I have a occasionally large pimple. But it happens only about once/twice a month and it's gone it 3-4 days, mainly thanks to these 2 products. I just LOVE it :).

    I really want to try the serozinc but we can't get it here in the US

    I swear by the moisturiser, I always turn to it when I have a bad skin day

    Have had so much success with the Effaclar Duo, it's just a matter of time before I foray into their other products… the mask sounds wonderfully hydrating 🙂

    Ive just purchased the DUO and can already feel it working for my skin, loving the la-roche posay products im so glad they arent that expensive either x

    I recently bought Effaclar Duo myself as I'd broke out and I have my brother's wedding on Saturday! I've only used it since Monday night and it's amazing, my skin is clearing up really well and looking great!

    Think the eye treatment is my next purchase. 🙂

    I really need to try the Effalcar Duo – it gets so much praise! x

    I'm happy the effaclar duo is working for other people but it just doesn't seem to do much for me! 🙁

    i LOVE la roche posay skincare! i'm tempted to give that hydraphase masque a try! xx

  17. 5th September 2013 / 4:39 pm

    Great post! Ive been tempting to try out this brand and now surely give that mask a go!

    I only ever hear good things about this brand. I'm not too great with my skincare in all honesty so I wonder if this could be one of the products that changes that!

    I find that Duo can be quite drying at times so I refrain from using it every day. I do like La Roche Posay on a whole though, some lovely products 🙂
