La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra

If you have a tendency to react to products or have very sensitive skin, as I do, then La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra is something that might just be the ticket for you, carrying The British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval.

100%-free from lanolin, colorants, alcohol, artificial fragrance, parabens and preservatives with space-age anti-contamination and ultra-hermetic packaging, they’ve really pulled out the big guns. La Roche-Posay laboratories clearly understand the causes of sensitive skin.

So you know what it hasn’t got, but what has it got? Not a huge amount and only what’s necessary. Tested on allergic skin complying with EU Standard Series testing, it’s main hydrating and calming ingredients are: Isocetyl Stearate, Squaline, Shea Butter and Glycerin. The water in the product is calming La Roche-Posay thermal spring water, the effective power behind the brand.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra is designed to deeply hydrate and calm ultra-sensitive and/or allergic skin (face and eyes). On the skin it feels deeply nourishing but not greasy and I can see this being beneficial for pretty much any skin type (unless very oily).

It works well on my dry/combination skin type (drier in winter) and does’t leave me all that shiny; I mean, there’s a sheen, but I don’t look wet. My top tip for this product is to keep it in the fridge. If you flare up or react as I do constantly when testing a good few of the products I review for Manface, I’ve found this, with a little La Roche-Posay Cicaplast, immediately calms things down and reduces surface redness and irritation.

If this sounds up your street, it’s available for £12.37 here from Boots online or £17 here from Esecntual.
