Having sensitive skin can be quite a pain, because it’s always tough to find skincare that truly helps with sensitivity. It’s especially annoying for me because I’m always attracted to new beauty products on the market but I’ll never know if they’ll trigger any sensitive reaction until I try them.
If you’re constantly experiencing redness, tightness and that itchy feeling on your skin, you might be battling with skin sensitivity issues. I’ve recently been invited to try out the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra c/o the brand and I want to share with you my experience with the skincare range targeted at skin sensitivity.
Toleriane Ultra is a range created to serve all who has sensitive skin as it contains Neurosensine, an anti-inflammatory compound, to soothe skin. If you’re familiar with LRP products, then you’ll be no stranger to its signature Thermal Spring Water. I’ve been using the Thermal Spring Water for years now and it does a great job in soothing my skin whenever I need a dose of freshness, or an instant skin perk-me-up. The Toleriane Ultra range is also enriched with its Thermal Spring Water to help minimise the risk of reaction with sensitive skin.
I’ve dedicated my skin to trying out 3 products in the range:
- Caring Wash – a gel-textured gentle facial wash
- Dermo-Soothing Hydrating Lotion – a fast-absorbing hydrating toner
- Intense Soothing Fluid Face and Eyes – a lightweight soothing moisturiser
Toleriane Ultra Caring Wash
This facial wash has a light gel texture that doesn’t strip your skin off essential oils while cleansing. It is formulated to be soap-free, preservative-free and fragrance-free, which is vital when it comes to sensitive skin. It contains a Cocobetaine that removes impurities and make-up without over drying the skin.
I quite like this facial wash as it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. It doesn’t have much of a scent as well which is great for sensitive skin. It helps to remove light makeup as well but I still suggest for you to remove your makeup thoroughly before cleansing your skin with this so as to really remove all the impurities and dirt on your skin.
Toleriane Ultra Dermo-Soothing Hydrating Lotion
Following the wash, I’ve been religiously applying the Dermo-Soothing Hydrating Lotion. I usually dispense this on a cotton pad before gently swiping across my face. It helps to remove any excess impurities and dead skin cells. It’s mildly hydrating and doesn’t cause any reaction to my skin which is great.
The texture of the toner is pretty much like many other toners out there, lightweight, watery and fast-absorbing.
If you’re looking for a toner that hydrates, and doesn’t cause any reaction to your sensitive skin, then this is for you.
Toleriane Ultra Intense Soothing Fluid Face and Eyes
This is my favourite out of the 3 products I’ve tried. As the name suggests, the soothing fluid can be used on the eyes as its formula is gentle enough. The formula has a milky but light texture that gets absorbed into the skin fairly quickly without leaving a greasy after-feel. It intensely hydrates and soothes ultra-sensitive skin from common sensations such as stinging, itching, burning sensations, and visible redness.
Every time I apply this, I find that my skin calms down quite a bit. My skin gets red very easily and I find that this fluid really helps in soothing my skin, especially areas on my cheeks and around my nose. It’s also super-hydrating such that I don’t feel dryness at all when I sleep in an air-conditioned environment.
What I like also like about this fluid is its ultra-hermetic (complete and airtight) packaging. It has this nozzle that only dispenses when you depress the top and once you release the dispense, it shuts tight to prevent air from entering the bottle. This protects the formula from air and bacteria, which is a plus point!
All in all, I enjoyed using the Toleriane Ultra range as I feel that my skin has greatly calmed down with constant use. My skin’s redness has been reduced and especially with the fluid, I don’t feel so much tightness in my skin anymore even in air-conditioned environment.
If you’re having sensitive skin, I highly recommend you to try out the range for yourself and finally give some love to your skin! I’m sure your skin will thank you for that. 😉 There’s a promotion going on if you’re keen:
