La Roche-Posay Redermic Normal to Combination Skin Review

Time to talk about my new product that I've been using for over a month now. The La Roche-Posay Redermic for Normal to Combo Skin, wow what a mouthful right? Well this stuff is pretty awesome, and I will explain why. Let me explain what it does first. It's meant for women in their 40's and 50's ... which means it's pretty powerfule stuff. Ok so I'm not even close to my 40's yet, but that doesn't mean I can't try out something like this. It's a thin cream, that basically looks like your normal daily moisturizer. But not.

This can be used on sensitive skin, normal skin, dry skin and combination, so I wouldn't recommend for oily types. Although La Roch-Posay does carry a similar product, so of course no one is left out. It's meant to fill in DEEP wrinkles, (notice I capitalized the DEEP) and help with loss of firmness. It's not oily, greasy or sticky, and fills in nicely when applied. A side note, you don't need to apply a lot of this. It appears pretty powerful and a little goes a long way.

Clinical studies SHOW (Taken from the La Roche Website) After 4 hours: 17% increase in skin firmness. 33% increase in skin tone. 30% increase in skin hydration. After 4 weeks: 12% reduction in crow's feet wrinkles.

So after using this in one month's time, I have noticed visible changes around my eyes mostly. Being pregnant, of course I have been staying away from things like Botox, which is no easy task for me. That's why I'm glad I found a cream such as this. I applied a tiny bit morning and night and I did see more hydration and a slight difference in my crow's feet. I do think that this is better suited for someone in their 40's and above because that age group would probably see more of a different with something like this. But hey, you can start early right? The tube appears small in the picture but it's 1.35 fluid ounces, and a little will go a long way. I still have over half a tube left. I would advise using this on your problem areas only, instead of using it as a daily moisturizer.

You can purchase La Roche-Posay Redermic for $51.50 online at their website.
