La Roche Posay Rosaliac Skin Perfecting Anti-Redness Moisturiser, €20.99. No press samples featured.
I bought La Roche Posay Rosaliac Skin Perfecting Anti-Redness Moisturiser without much research. I needed a moisturiser quickly, and I didn’t want to splurge. I’ve never tried a La Roche Posay product that wasn’t great, or at least good, so didn’t feel like this would be too risky a choice.
Oh, lads, there is nothing good about this.
Things That Are WRONG
It makes my skin feel dry and tight. I mean, you had one job, moisturiser. I think the dryness might come from the whack of alcohol included – it’s fifth on the ingredient list. Fifth!
It doesn’t soak in. It sits on top of my skin and, when it dries, leaves a heavy layer of what feels like grime. If I run my finger over my skin, that residue peels off in clumps.
When it comes to makeup, you’d have more luck trying to get an even coat on an plucked chicken. With this as a base, my favourite foundation just slops off in those same grimy clumps I mentioned above.
After a few days of use, my skin was dry, sore and I had (still have) blemishes. I’m really sensitive to alcohol denant, as are lots of people who have issues with redness, so that’s where I’m laying the blame. I’m baffled by its inclusion in a product that’s supposed to be for those with red, sensitive skin.
Its green, but I didn’t notice the tint making any cosmetic difference to redness. So, not awful, but ineffectual.
That’s about it, not a redeeming feature in sight. Avoid!
