Caring For Sensitive Skin

Hey guys,

Today I want to talk to you about the skincare products that I have been absolutely loving for the past few months. Around about October time, I started breaking out a lot more than usual (it wasn’t pretty), and none of my usual spot treatments were working  (you can imagine the panic). So, I decided to completely revamp my skincare routine and properly pay attention to the sorts of products I was using and how my skin was reacting to them. And I kid you not guys, it’s completely changed my life (definitely not being OTT here).

I have quite sensitive and blemish prone skin, so I wanted to use products that would be gentle and help reduce breakouts (basically something that would make my skin look fresh). I had been dying to try out La Roche Posay products forever, and I had read so many reviews about how amazing their products are, so obviously I decided to give them a go. There’s also something about a discount at the bottom you’re gonna want to check out.

Let me tell you one thing, I am so glad I bought these products! Ever since using them I haven’t even considered using anything else. The products are all made in France, and there is a massive range of products to suit all skin types; whether you have sensitivity, pigmentation, blemishes/acne scars (just to list a few) – there are products to combat pretty much all skin issues. There is a lot of information on the La Roche Posay website about how to take better care of your skin and of course all the amazing products they have. Oh, and a majority of the products are all free of nasty chemicals (winning). 

The Toleriane Dermo Cleanser (£11.00) was the first thing I bought, and I am never letting it run out (I took 4 bottles of it to India with me). This is the best cleanser I have ever used, and I cannot praise it enough. The whole Toleriane range contains a whole range of high tolerance products to treat even the most intolerant and sensitive skin. It can be quite overwhelming to decide which product is best, and what is going to work, but you can speak to someone online on their website, or on their Facebook page for some advice. One of the consultants I spoke to recommended the Toleriane Dermo Cleanser because it’s the best for even the most sensitive skin. I’ve been using this cleanser for 5 months now, and I love love love it! I can see a huge difference in my skin and it’s definitely a lot less reactive. When I first started using the cleanser, I did have a few breakouts as the thermal spring water was restoring the ph balance of my skin (aka the purging phase). This cleanser has definitely become a holy grail skincare product, and I am so glad I found it.

I bought a small bottle of the Thermal Spring Water (£3.50) because I wanted to try out a product that would soothe and refresh my skin after cleansing. This facial spray has become a favourite of mine and I can’t believe I didn’t buy it sooner. I use it after cleansing my skin to soothe any irritation, and also as a setting spray to help keep my makeup looking nice and fresh. Plus the smaller can is travel friendly, so you can take it with you anywhere (it’s great to freshen up your skin when you’re on a long haul flight).

Sometimes our skin needs some extra loving and a bit of TLC (especially after the rough winter months when skin can be a bit dull). The Cicaplast Baume B5 is a real treat for the skin and it’s become an essential whenever my skin needs more nourishment. I tend to use this product before I go to bed as it is quite rich, and I wake up with my skin feeling super moisturised and super soft.

There is 25% off all La Roche Posay Products over at feelunique – make sure you check it out.
