Treatments (Face) -La Roche-Posay -CICAPLAST BAUME B5 (Multi-purpose/soothing repairing balm)

Strangely, when my skin is at its most sensitive, this will sting on application and exacerbate dry skin. I was so disappointed as it seems to work for a lot of people, several IRL friends, colleagues etc invariably sing its praises. So I can't really conclude that this is a truly bad product, it just doesn't agree with my skin type. Price wise, it's on the lower end of LRP's skincare lines, can't remember exactly what I paid but it was less than £10.

The squeezy bottle is very welcome, no digging out cream from a jar or pot, and no pump refusing to let you get to the very last scraps of product at the bottom. It's a thick, off-white colour cream, with a consistency like high SPF sunscreens - ambre solaire jumps to mind. It doesn't leave a white cast though. Anyway, it feels like a soft and slightly tacky layer over the skin, and looks quite shiny on if applied liberally. It's also unscented.

I ran out of my usual rescue cream one day, and used this in the hopes of tiding things over until I could get it again. My skin was still worse for wear, but not as flaky or red, and surprisingly this time it didn't burn or dry me out. I guess it might be that this just doesn't work on broken skin. Whatever the reason, this is a decent "step down" protective moisturiser to use after the initial early wound repair has occurred at least. Sadly, I really dislike how awful this feels over my most sensitive skin areas in dire need of TLC, so I wouldn't replace this once it ran out.

Cleansers -La Roche-Posay -Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser

FYI Canadians: this is called "Toleraine Caring wash"

I have been using this cleanser on and off for about three months. I can't use foaming cleansers, and my other options here in the province I live in are limited to cream cleansers, Spectro gel and things like that. I have large pores and I get congested skin very easily. I do not want to pay to have special cleansers with limited surfactants (like this one which touts just one cleansing agent) so I was curious and cautious.
It's not drying, doesn't strip my skin and has not clogged my pores. It's a gel-cream consistency, it does not foam but it does lather if you know what I mean when water is added. After cleansing, I use a gentle toner and I can see that it removes the tinted mineral sunscreen and the bit of Kat Von D lockit concealer I use ( I don't even know if they make that concealer anymore. I still have a tube and love it) the cotton pad is always clean. I like this, it is a very utilitarian product. It just cleans skin that is all.
The probiotic water claim is unsubstantiated and so I take that with a grain of salt. There are no verified studies that show topical probiotics do anything for the skin's microbiome. I Will Update in a month.

Treatments (Face) -La Roche-Posay -Rosaliac AR intense

This appears to be the only product from the Rosaliac range available in Australia. It is excellent. I don’t know what miracle is in this bottle but it does significantly reduce redness in my skin and in a loved one of mine who has rosacea. It isn’t cheap but if it works for you it’s worth it. It is not terribly hydrating, it’s just a treatment, so I wait a bit and layer moisturiser etc over it. Will repurchase.


Sunscreen -La Roche-Posay -Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF50+

I have dry, sensitive skin and have long heard great reviews about LRP SPF products.

This is the first one I tried. It applies smoothly and initially left a subtle sheen. After a few hours my skin started to look drier.

By lunchtime my face felt significantly irritated and I had to remove it before mayhem set in. I’m not sure if it’s the alcohol or the octocrylene. I’m not deterred from trying another item in this range, perhaps the one aimed at dry skin, but unfortunately this formula wasn’t a winner for me.


Sunscreen -La Roche-Posay -Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid

First I am an avid sunscreen user. I always use a moisturizer then apply sunscreen. I also wear a light to medium foundation ( liquid or powder) so I am always on the search for a sunscreen that plays well with my primer and foundations. This is a pretty good chemical based sunscreen. Love the fluid texture. Applies like a dream. No white cast. Plays well with a variety of primers I use. I did find it a tad drying. I just prefer my Clarins or Shiseido sunscreens as they use a physical sunscreens
