Trying something new from a brand I already know and love is my very favourite thing, especially when it’s all about skincare. In that case, my skin tends to work by brands, or more so by the thoughts and values behind them. La Roche-Posay is amongst my skin’s favourites, and if I had relied or still rely on their Effaclar, Lipikar, Cicaplast or Hydraphase ranges, I’m not really familiar with the Toleriane one. The Toleriane Ultra Intense Soothing Care has rectified this issue.

It was an easy one to pick, my skin was rather weak and just didn’t feel or look its best. And whenever it happens, I go back to what La Roche-Posay does best: basics -more of that on the blog later-. Just as my belovedย Solution 10 de Chanel, the Toleriane Ultraย doesn’t misjudge the sensitive skin: creamy but not overly heavy, it doesn’t have the thick, greasy consistency of most sensitive creams, it penetrates the skin rather easily, yet it still leaves a protective coat on top of it. In fact, I can still feel it on my skin the next morning, more in a soothing way than a disgusting way, though.

ย Yet the Toleriane Ultra works in both the morning and the evening, on the face but also on the eye contours -and even on my lips-. It is a simple cream: without any fuss, it soothes and nourishes the skin at the same time. If it offers comfort within the first use, it also keeps getting better at keeping my sensitivity at bay throughout the days and weeks. From such simplicity, without any fancy claims or fancy scent, it manages to do so much more than most moisturizers: my skin isn’t confused anymore, it is back to normal, perhaps even healthier and more radiant than usual.



  • This sounds amazing! I need to try more La Roche Posay skincare products xx

    • I highly recommend the brand in general! Thank you for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I haven’t tried this but I do really like the regular Toleriane xx


  • This sounds lovely! I agree, sometimes you just need to go back to basics!

  • I think I’ll get this for my partner. He has sensitive skin and never uses any moisturizer, but he definitely should!
    I personally keep repurchasing the eye version of this because my eye area sometimes reacts to certain products but with this one I’ve never had any problems.

    • I’ve heard some great things about the eye version, I might pick it up next time I run out of my current eye cream! Yes, it would be perfect because it is really is a simple product and it doesn’t have any scent as well!

  • I recommend this to almost all of my customers and they freaking love it. It’s really odd as the texture is so light and yet very hydrating and so gentle on the skin. It’s a classic.

  • Back to basics is what I do whenever my skin gets upset, which thankfully happens rarely. And La Roche Posay is a brand I enjoy a lot as well, mainly the Effaclar range.

    • I wish I could say the same! Yes, the Effaclar range is amongst my favourite, it is such a gentle way to treat breakouts!

  • I really love how gentle the LRP formulas are, especially for sensitive skin xx

    • I agree! Even the Effaclar range is extremely gentle! Thank you for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

  • My sister’s skin has recently been quite sensitive, this would be such a great option for her, thanks for sharing! Xx

    • It is! You really can’t go wrong with La Roche-Posay, they really put a lot of thoughts in creating simple and efficient products and they have so many different ranges that you will definitely find one for your skin type in there! Thank you for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wow, a cream that works on the lips and eyes too? Now I really want to run out and try this!

    • Yes, they don’t say anything about the lips on the packaging, but it works really well for me!

  • Whenever I try too many products at once and need up upsetting my skin, I also find that going back to basic products and a simple routine works wonders. I’ve tried this before in the past and enjoyed using the cream xx

    • I think it is exactly what happened to me, I have tried too many different products in one or two weeks and my skin didn’t like it! Glad you enjoyed it as well ๐Ÿ™‚
