Ode to La Roche-Posay
No matter how you want to pronounce it….
La Roche Posay so far has amazed me a few times. Thanks to recommendations from some very insightful friends. I will start with Nutritic for Lips. Say buh-bye to your Chapstick forever! It rightfully claims to be transforming care for very dry lips. It contains Biolipids and Ceramide 5, what ever they may be but apparently they are effective. It also contains Shea butter, castor seed oil, apricot seed oil, among others. I still apply it a few times a day during cold winter days but not nearly as much as any other lip balm. In comparison, the stuff is not cheap. But I always take in account the extent of time I am able to use it. Common sense also rules that you will use less of this, therefore won’t need to repurchase it as quickly as the cheaper stuff. See how I just justified that? Around $10.00 at most retailers.
The second product I will vouch for is the eye cream. I stayed away from the ones containing retinol since this can be a little too harsh for my delicate skin. For that reason I opted for the Vitamin C version. My eyes are a lost cause during the winter with the dry heat blasting in my office and car. At home I try to recover with a humidifier and open windows in my bedroom. I recently also purchased a portable humidifier for my car and office. Hopefully every little bit helps.
La Roche-Posay Lipkar, a $20.00 body lotion. Love! I really don’t spend this much money on all these products. I just had a few samples to try. Since I am trying to be a little more frugal in 2020 I may just stick with my baby oil…for now….
Last but not least with sunnier days heading our way, invest in some Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin Dry Skin Sun Screen retails around $32.00. Don’t be cheap when it comes to sun screen!
