Beauty: Notable LA ROCH-POSEY Products

Beauty: Notable Products LA ROCH-POSEY

A mini haul from LA ROCHE-POSEY, France is famously good for skincare, known for their highly effective formulas, reasonable prices and their use of hydrating thermal water a few of my favourite french brands include Thalgo for its beautiful body treatments (think collagen, algaes & minerals), Academie for its divine facial treatments and LA ROCHE-POSEY for it’s problem-solving products.

So having the chance to browse round my local pharmacy who carry the entire LA ROCHE-POSEY range I re stocked with few favourites.

Starting off with Redermic, the redermic range branches into two sections Redermic R (contains retinol vitamin A) and Redermic C (contains vitamin C)  both have anti ageing properties the Redermic C could be used from the early 20’s progressing to retinol’s in your mid to late 20’s or as lifestyle warrants (unless for acne – under direction). Both these products offer an entry level product at a reasonable price. Yes Sunday Riley Luna sounds amazing (also contains retinol’s) it is a slightly different compound and has a fantastic delivery system with oils and algae but you certainly pay for it at £85 – 30ml so if your not sure if retinol’s are for you or are still a bit scared (of the redness and peeling rumours – which should subside after initial use) then this is a notable starter product as it gives excellent results for the price.  Suitable for all skin types (not for use in pregnancy in my opinion, use every 2/3 nights)

Next Redermic C which can be used together with the above product (although at separate times Redermic C in the morning Redermic R in the evening) or alone, I am loving skincare containing vitamin C right now (and feel it’s having a moment) I have a list of ones I want to try (Kate Sommerville Mega C Duel Radiance Serum $90 & Dr Sebah vitamin C Powder Cream £79) How it works/ what it does? Vitamin C is a mega antioxidant it scavenges free radicals produced by the body due to diet, environmental pollution and UVA/UVB rays from the sun (these free radicals cause premature ageing) it also encourages collagen renewal and lightens discoloration – It improves skin luminosity. (suitable for all skin types – start slowly especially with sensitive skin, combining with deep exfoliation could cause/will probably cause irritation)

I also re -purchased the famed zero zinc which I use after exfoliating with a brush cleanser during my at-home facial routine to re moisturise and calm any redness before applying a serum. A mini Eau Thermale (spring water spritzer) for refreshing after sticky tube journeys and finally Post Helios a melt-in gel aftersun (this preparation is only paraben free) but works great for softening sun dryed skin, I use this in combination with a natural (treatment type/botanical) after sun from DR. Hauschka.

So that’s my notable skin care from LA ROCHE-POSEY which offers some purse friendly alternatives to similar high-end products. Let me know your thoughts or questions?
