“ Brand: La Roche-Posay / Ageing / Type: Cream / What it does: Smoothes, „
La Roche-Posay Retinol Cream 60 is a skin treatment cream aimed to tackling acne, as well as anti-aging and contains Biomedic Retinol. ~~~TUBE DESIGN~~~ This skin treatment cream comes in a narrow tube with a thin nozzle. The tube is metal and easily bent and holes may form which causes leaks. This is very badly done and in order to prevent any leaking, one shud squeeze from the end, oppose to fold it in anyway. Whilst the narrow nozzle is aimed to allow ease of squeezing and reduce waste and accurate amounts to come out, the cream will come out by itself if too much force is applied to it. I would recommend only squeezing with very little pressure and waiting for it to slowly come out by itself then close the cap to avoid waste and mess. ~~~TEXTURE AND APPEARANCE~~~ The cream is a pale cream colour which if left will turn into a yellow shade. If left for longer it will solidify. It has a thin consistancy, perhaps the cause of it coming out on its own. ~~~EASE OF APPLICATION~~~ Due to its thin consistancy, it is easy to apply and only small amounts need to be used to cover the whole face. I personally only use a large pea sized amount, and apply it to areas of acne. Upon the first few applications, you will feel a stinging sensation which is normal, as the cream needs to work within your pores. After a while, you will no longer feel this. Use less frequently as appropriate although it should be used daily. ~~~EFFECTS~~~ The cream tackles straight down into the pores and is intended to transform your skin, from spotty, pigmented or scarred skin into new skin. You may feel the face tighten as it reduce the size of pores, and also may have some flaky skin as it removed old dirt and helps your skin change anew. It also causes your face to redden easily due to increased blood flow. One is also more sensitive to the sun after use, so sun cream is advised. However, this works quicker than other creams and cause spots to die down quicker. ~~~PRICE~~~ The cost of this cream is around $50 and it can be purchased online. ~~~OVERALL OPINION~~~ The product is good, although the stinging takes a while to get used to. It is also expensive and the mechanism of the tube causes some problems and inconvenience and also annoyance. But No Pain no gain right?
