I suffer from dehydrated skin that suffers from hormonal outbreaks from spots. I've resigned myself to the fact that no product will clear my skin but find that I still need to be selective in selection as often the heavier products will clog my pores leading to worse outbreaks.
I had been on the look out for a day moisturiser which also contained a SPF which rehydrated rather than over moisturised my skin. So when I came across Hydraphase UV intensive rehydration I was keen to try it.
I didn't know much about La Roche Posay but at £12 for 50 ml, I felt that it must be from a decent skin care range. The packaging also seemed to reiterate this as the white cylinder stuck me as being classic and simple. The product was delivered via a pump system which I liked as it meant that I wasn't wasting any of it .
The moisturiser itself was surprisingly light, with a little going a long way. It smelt fresh and clean and was reminiscent of cucumbers. It felt cool on application and my skin felt instantly hydrated and soft. One complaint would be that the product did seem to take a little longer than other moisturisers to sink into my skin and because of this I have only given it 4 stars.
As mentioned earlier, a little of this moisturiser goes a long way and I have been using this now for several months and it's still going. I recently took it on a holiday where we went from dry desert heat to hot humid weather and it performed fantastically in both situations.
Although I do still suffer from outbreaks, my skin doesn't seem as clogged as it used to be and my complexion appears brighter and more even. I would recommend this product to all skin types except very dry skin.
