Product Praise La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-cleanser

La Roche-Posay is another one of those French pharmacie brands that I'm in love with. They have a wide range of skincare products and I enjoy using them from time to time - they make great products for sensitive skin. Today I'm going to talk about my favourite cleanser which has reached an HG-status over the last few months...
This cleanser is available in 2 sizes: 200ml and 400ml, both are priced between 10-16euros. I bought the 400ml because of the pricequantity ánd you get a pump on top of it - which makes it so much easier to get the right amount of product. I've been using it for half a year now and will probably get 1 or 2 months more usage out of it, so it definitely goes a long way. The packaging is really simple: white & basic, as all LRP products.
This gentle fragrance and surfactant-free cleanser hydrates and soothes as it removes even waterproof make-up. Perfect for sensitive and intolerant skin. Can be wiped-off or rinsed off.

Recommended For

Sensitive skin, Eczema (atopic dermatitis), Dry skin

Gently removes makeup and residue
, Light, smooth lotion texture, Fragrance-free, surfactant-free, Non-comedogenic
The pump dispenser works easily, I usually take 2 pumps to cleanse my face. You can use a cotton ball or a washing cloth with this cleanser, depends on your likings. I use my hands to spread the cleanser and afterwards I use a washing cloth to remove the last traces. I don't like a cotton ball for this purpose as it always leaves a greasy layer. This product is fragrance-free, which I'm a fan of, you don't need perfume on your face. It's also perfect for sensitive skin, it never irritated mine or gave it a tingling feeling - even when spending all day outdoors - big plus!

Then it's also great for dry skin: after cleansing my skin doesn't feel tight, it just feels normal. This is a problem I often have with other cleansers, my skin practically begs for hydration... The product is really creamy and rich, it spreads easily and almost 'sinks' into your skin. Afterwards my skin feels soft and clean. This cleanser is good at removing make-up, but if you are wearing a lot I would advice using a seperate make-up remover prior to cleansing. For me, it cleanses my skin enough and doesn't clogg my pores - but on the other hand I rarily have clogged pores and break-outs. If you do, I would test this cleanser first as it is quite rich in texture.
The goods: ingredients (no fragrance), rich & creamy, cleanses well (can remove make-up), doesn't leave skin feeling tight, doesn't irritate at all, good pricequantity, pumppackaging

The bads: probably only suited for skin not prone to break-outs/clogged pores

Summing it up: yes, I love this cleanser and it suites my skin type perfectly. I still have a few new cleansers awaiting reviews, but this one will be repurchased without a doubt. Highly recommended product for sensitive skin types not prone to clogging.
