I am yet to be disappointed by any product I have tried from La Roche Posay. The Effaclar line saved my skin from breakouts /acne and changed it for the better. But I had never tired anything from the Hyrdraphase line until recently when I started using the Intense Serum in my evening skincare routine and I have been noticing a big improvement in my skin.
The La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum can be used morning and or evening as the first step in your skincare routine which is then followed with your preferred moisturiser, I have been only using this in the evenings and followed with the Vichy Sleep Balm and it works brilliantly. This can be used on the most dehydrated and sensitive skin to replenishing the hydration of the skin while soothing it. It also has hyaluronic acid fragments to help provide the skin with deep hydration which is perfect for the winter months. As well as the hyaluronic acid it also has a highly concentrated blend of the La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water which has anti irritating properties.
Until I started using this I never used a serum before because I didn't think my skin needed any more hydration. My skin can be a little oily but my skin has never felt better since using this every evening. I have had very dry and comfortable skin recently and this serum has helped massively. I take 1-2 pumps and apply to my face, avoiding the eye area then follow with moisturiser. The serum sinks into the skin quickly even though it is a slightly thicker serum, it leaves my skin feeling comfortable. It doesn't leave any residue on the skin and while it is very gentle on the skin it has made a huge different in the hydration on my skin! I have also noticed that my face looks much more plump and smooth since I have been using this, especially around my mouth and nose where I needed it most. Even though I mainly use this in the evening, I have started using in it the morning too as it does sink in so quickly so I don't need to wait before I can apply my makeup and I have been needing some extra hydration as my skin has been so dry due to the weather.
If you have very sensitive skin I like do which is very dry I would give the Hydraphase line a try, this serum has really helped inject some hydration back into my skin! The La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum retails for £19 but is currently on offer for £16.90 at Escentual - HERE.
