If you are a big fan of French Pharmacy skincare products, as am I, then there is no doubt that LA ROCHE-POSAY has long been fixed on your radar. I am a huge fan of their products, and have two to recommend if you need an effective duo to reduce inflammation, redness and skin irritation. LA ROCHE-POSAY Rosaliac Skin Perfecting Anti-Redness Moisturizer and Cicaplast Soothing Multi-Purpose Balm are both fragrance-free, ultra soothing products that heal red, irritated skin, and they are great post-peel choices.LA ROCHE-POSAY Rosaliac Skin Perfecting Anti-Redness Moisturizer ($38.99 for 1.35 oz. from Target, Apothica, Overstock and Beauty Encounter): This lightweight, fast absorbing, lotion immediately soothes, calms and nourishes irritated, red skin, and it does so quickly and seemingly effortlessly. Red and inflamed skin quickly gives way to calm, nourished, hydrated and luminous skin. The light green tint, that leaves behind no pigmentation, helps to neutralize redness, while the thermal water soothes irritated skin. I used this following a recent at-home peel, and my skin was immediately calmed, and the redness dissipated very quickly.
According to LA ROCHE-POSAY,
Rosaliac moisturizer helps neutralize visible redness on a daily basis to harmonize skin complexion.
L'eau thermale de La Roche-Posay Neutralizes redness at the source Restores comfort and luminosity.
- Xanthine, a patent-pending ingredient, helps soothe skin.
- Vitamins CG and B3 strengthen the moisture barrier of delicate and reactive skin.
- La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water: rich in Selenium, a powerful, natural antioxidant, provides instant skin soothing.
- Moisturizes and optically neutralizes redness.
- Helps soothe and restore skin comfort.
- With green tint to re-balance skin tone.
- Lightweight texture. Excellent make-up base.
- For delicate and reactive skin with fragile blood vessels

LA ROCHE-POSAY Cicaplast Soothing Multi-Purpose Balm ($14.99 for 1.35 oz. from La Roche-Posay, Target, Skin Care RX and Beauty Expert): This multi-purpose balm was formulated to address the needs of dry and very skin, but it is fantastic on any chapped, irritated and inflamed skin as well. It is a very thick and rich balm, that is quite concentrated, and can therefore be used quite sparingly. It can be used anywhere on the face, body, hands and lips, but one should avoid the eye area. It functions as one superb hand cream, foot cream and lip balm when your skin is dry, and I leave mine on my nightstand for that very reason.
According to LA ROCHE-POSAY,
Multi-purpose soothing balm for dry skin irritations that’s suitable for adults, children, and babies.
With Panthenol, Shea Butter and Glycerin, Cicaplast Baume B5 helps nurturing and soothing dry, visibly irritated areas on the skin. Rich, nourishing texture with a matte finish that’s non-oily and non-sticky.
- Use to nourish and sooth dry areas and signs of irritation caused by dryness

- [Madecassoside] + [Copper - Zinc - Maganese] that helps to visibly reduce the appearance of dry, irritated skin.
Overall Assessment: If you have any dry, red, irritated skin that needs some TLC, then these are both worth your consideration.

I'm always impressed with LaRoche-Posay products. Though I don't have redness and irritation thank goodness, it's good to know that this line is out there so I can recommend your review and the products to those who may need itReplyDelete
I feel the same way about their products. I am not prone to redness, but these are really handy after at-home peels and ultra effective exfoliants!Delete
These look as if they would be nice to have on hand. My skin can get a bit red and could use additional soothing and hydrating.ReplyDelete
They are definitely wonderful to have on hand, and if you are prone to redness they might just become staples for you! I also really like to use them after I have done a peel or serious exfoliation! I think that you would really like them, Erika!Delete
There are so many great skincare items out on the market now - it's always difficult to choose when faced with purchases. Thanks for all your reviews. They really make choosing easier :)ReplyDelete
Hi Destiny, I agree! It can get very, very overwhelming. I am so glad that my skincare reviews prove to be useful for you!Delete
I definitely want to try that balm!ReplyDelete
I think that you would really love it, Jamie!Delete
It looks like this line would be good for rosacea.ReplyDelete
I definitely think it would be worth trying for rosacea.Delete
I love French pharmacy brands and LRP Serozinc is a favourite in my life. These sound great for over-exfoliated skin.ReplyDelete
I do too! French Pharmacy brands are among my favorites! These are definitely good choices for over-exfoliated skin!Delete
I always thought that LaRoche Posay was fragranced. It's so good to hear these aren't.ReplyDelete
These two definitely do not have fragrance in them.Delete
How can you not love a bit of La Roche? I never thought of using an anti-redness cream after facials... such a great idea!ReplyDelete
Exactly! Yes, I love using an anti-redness cream after a facial or peel. It really is a great way to calm down the skin!Delete
Why can't this be used under the eyes?ReplyDelete
They do not specify why, but my guess is that they included this warning because they didn't formulate it for the eye area, and that the ingredients probably shouldn't get into the eyes. If you seek a more specific answer, I would suggest contacting them via their website so that they can elaborate.Delete
