My face was in seriously bad repair the last couple of months. I do believe that it was down to the Clarins One Step cleanser that I was using. I enjoyed using that cleanser at first but pretty soon it left my skin looking red and blotchy, and putting anything on my face made it sting!
I stopped using the Clarins One Step and tried some more gentler products, but my skin still looked rather irritated. I read that La Roche Posay would have products that would help with that, so off to the chemist I went!
I needed a little help, because I really did not know what I was after. I've only ever used La Roche Posay sun cream, so their skincare products are all new to me!
The sales assistant in the chemist helped me pick out a few things, after I told her what the problem was with my skin she recommended Toleraine cleanser and moisturiser. I also wanted to get some kind of exfoliator, as I had noticed a lot of dry skin around my nose. So I bought Physiological Ultra Fine Scrub as well!
As you can see there is a substantial difference after just one week of using the La Roche Posay skincare! In fact, when I started using La Roche Posay, my skin looked even worse than it does in the "before" photo.
I cannot believe the difference! All of the La Roche Posay products that I got are absolutely fantastic. The cleanser is a lovely consistency, lotion type cleanser. The exfoliator is a gel-type consistency with very fine exfoliating beads. It has a nice sweet scent too. The moisturiser has almost a gel type consistency too. Only a tiny amount of the moisturiser is needed! I have to get used to only squeezing out a tiny dot, as the tiniest amount goes a long way.
Also La Roche Posay was a touch cheaper than the Clarins skincare products I had been using, which are a little expensive. I got the Toleraine moisturiser and cleanser, and the exfoliator for just over £30.00 in total. Not bad!
If these are the results I am getting after just one week, I will definitely be continuing my use of La Roche Posay and I wouldn't mind trying out more of their products!
