Drugstore Skincare-La Roche Posay.

For the past month I have been using mostly La Roche-Posay  products, I really wanted to see how they work together.

  La Roche-Posay is a french skincare brand  with amazing selection of mineral rich formulars targeting specific  skin concerns from acne,dryness,oiliness to ageing signs.

They have specific names for each skin care range, for example the effaclar range is formulated for oily, acne prone and sensitive skin, which I think makes it easy to know what product range is great for your concerns.

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water  is their signature ingredients for most if not all their products.

Effaclar Purifying Forming Gel (For oily and sensitive skin)

This is a gentle cleanser, it does not feel harsh on the skin

Cleanses beautifully and easily

You get 200ml for 14.40Euro

A little bit goes a long way.

It does have a scent to it but it’s a subtle fresh smell and it wont linger.


Effaclar Duo (+) SPF 30

Corrective, Unclogging care,Anti-imperfections, Anti-UV , Anti-marks

This is making its way to be one of my top 5 day moisturizers for oily skin.

Its light weight, does not leave you greasy

It has SPF 30, so you get the right moisture and the UV protection.. WIN!

No lingering white caste as with many moisturizers with SPF.

Moisturizes just right!

It won’t clog your pores and I have seen some breakout spots on my face fade since I started using this product! I really love it 😍

The packaging is just perfect and hygienic, it’s not messy to use at all.

Soothing Lotion -Sensitive Skin

With La Roche-Posay thermal spring water, hydrogenated castor oil,citric acid and glycerin.

Soothes, Tones, Protects Physiological pH.

Thats just it guys, really this is in my top 3 toners so far, the only two toners that could compete with this is the Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle turbo line smoothing lotion and the Body shop vitamins E toning lotion

This toner smells fresh and gentle

It is easy on the skin

Skin feels balanced

It feels like if the washing stripped your skin, this toner just brings it all back.

RedermicR Anti-ageing concentrate-Intensive



Retinol is the technical name for Vitamin A.

It is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient

Slows down ageing process and also diminishes already appearing signs of ageing like wrinkles.

If you have never used any Retinol before I will advice you use this 2 times a week at night for the first 2-3 weeks and then build up from there

Also use SPF 30 and above is not debatable.

I am working a post that will explain in details what the deal is with Retinol.

I really would recommend all these products if  it caters to your skin concerns and if it does not, check out their website

www.laroche-posay.com  to see which of their products best suits you.

For my beauties in Europe am sure you can walk into any pharmacy store to pick up these products or order online.

For my beauties in Africa, if you can’t find them in stores you can order from www.feelunique.com

Thanks so much for sticking with me loves.
