French Pharmacy at its best, La Roche-Posay has over 30 years of experience working with dermatologists around the world to create skincare and makeup products that meet the needs and requirements of all types of skin. The brand has become a leading player when it comes to developing products specifically formulated for sensitive skin - high tolerance and safety come high on their list when working with new products.
La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum is a daily product which refreshes and hydrates skin unveiling a nourished and glowing complexion. Ideal for sensitive skin, this moisturising facial serum is high in concentrated blend of La Roche-Posays Thermal Spring Water - a unique combination of minerals and trace elements (such as Selenium), which give this ingredient scientifically-proven soothing, softening and anti-oxidant properties. Hydraphase Intense Serum also contains Arginine and Serine (two powerful water captors), and hyaluronic acid fragments which immediately infuse your skin with deep hydration.
Hydraphase Intense Serum is non greasy and fast absorbing, and calls to be used in the morning and/or night as the first step after cleaning (don't forget to moisturise on top of the serum!). The result? Intense, 24hr hydration leading to soft, smooth and glowing skin!
I trialled the product for a month before posting this review and I really enjoy using La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum - it's lovely on my skin, doesn't dry it out or make it greasy (I have combination skin so it's difficult to get it right sometimes). I apply it in the morning after toning my skin, and then follow with my regular moisturiser, and eye cream - then carry on with makeup application. In the evening, I apply the serum after thoroughly cleansing my face, and follow with a night time moisturiser - in the morning I wake up without any tightness, and my skin looks refreshed.
Previously I have had problems with La Roche-Posay and receiving more blemishes after using some of their products but I think it was because I picked products that dried my skin out - and having combination skin, I need something that will help hydrate and protect my complexion. Hydraphase Intense Serum gets a thumbs up!
