Sensitive? Oily? Problematic? Rosacea? Fret not people, if you skin falls within this type, I have found the moisturiser for you. However, before I get onto that, let me tell you about how I fell upon this product.
I’ve been on the search for a night time moisturiser for a while now. Having combination-oily skin means that by morning time my face looks like an oil spill. I knew that I didn’t want to spend too much on a moisturiser and was searching for something without fragrance, alcohol or colourants. Recently, having had no success with Clinique Dramatically Different Gel Moisturiser, I found Toleriane Fluid from La Roche-Posay. A 40ml bottle of this costs £15 from FeelUnique and is sometimes on offer for £10.
As with all La Roche-Posay this product has no parabens, no perfume, no alcohol and no colourants, great! There are very few ingredients in this moisturiser in fact just 8. This is evident when you pump the product out into your palms, you’ll find that the moisturiser is very fluid; water and glycerin makes the bulk of this product.
This moisturiser doesn’t claim to do anything other than just that, moisturise, but what it does, it does very well. I use 3 pumps of this for my face and neck after my serum at night. It absorbs very quickly into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. Come morning time my skin doesn’t have any rough or dry patches and it isn’t oily in my T-zone.
It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve started using this moisturiser and I can honestly say my skin now feels as soft as a babies butt, my pores don’t appear as clogged, I haven’t experienced any breakouts and my skin appears calmer (no redness).
Toleriane Fluid doesn’t help with wrinkles or hyper-pigmentation but I feel like that is what my serum is for. At this stage in my life I require a simple moisturiser that locks in the ingredients of my serum and gets rid of dry spots. This product does just that and doesn’t causing any irritation. If your skin is like mine then I whole-heartedly recommend it. It’s also a great non-fussy moisturiser for the guys!
