A couple of months ago, I read about a Priceline contest and being a sucker for giveaways (also the idea of winning), I knew I had to join.

After a few days, I got this email…

I was ecstatic! I swear for the whole week, I was always by the door waiting for the post. And when it came, I was the happiest girl in the world (okay, that’s a bit too much but yes, I was pretty happy).

Priceline La Roche Posay

It came in a pink box (no photo because the moment I got my hands on it, I was already opening it while walking back to our room) and inside were a Priceline catalogue with two full sized products from La Roche PosayPurifying Micellar Water for Oily and Sensitive Skin and Redermic R Dermatological Anti-Aging Treatment Intensive

La Roche Posay review

Product Description

The Purifying Micellar Water for Oily and Sensitive Skin belongs to  La Roche Posay’s EFFACLAR line and its tagline is: 25 years’ dermatological expertise in oily skin.

It eliminates impurities and excess sebum while leaving the skin clean and fresh. With soothing, anti-irritant La Roche-Posay thermal spring water – pH 5.5 – Soap-free – Alcohol-free – Colorant-free – Paraben free.

How to use it:

Use morning and/or night on the face. Soak a cotton ball with the Purifying Micellar Water and clean the face and neck. Dry the skin gently using a clean towel or cotton pad.

Then we have the REDERMIC line of La Roche Posay, a “cutting-edge dermatological anti-aging active ingredients adapted to the specific needs of sensitive skin”. The  Redermic R Dermatological Anti-Aging Treatment Intensive is a concentrated skin-evening and wrinkle-diminishing treatment.

The non-irritating formula visibly diminishes lines while evening tone and refining skin texture for a youthful complexion. Non-comedogenic, paraben-free and hypoallergenic fragrance ensures it is gentle and safe for sensitive skin.

How to use it:

Apply in the morning and evening on face, neck and decollete alone or in combination with a moisturizing cream.

I love how their products are paraben-free and little amount goes a long a way! The fact that I got two full sized products that is actually catered to my skin type, made me feel like a real winner. To be honest, these are my first La Roche Posay.  I felt that I shouldn’t be spending too much on an expensive skincare line when I can get something way more cheaper from drugstore brands, but now that I know that these work wonders, I will definitely purchase once I’m finished with them.

How about you, what do you think of La Roche Posay products?
