La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque

Anyone who follows me on Twitter will be all too aware that I have been sick. (I've been constantly whinging.) But basically, I wasn't feeling well since last Saturday, but only went to the doctor on Thursday. So for Saturday-Thursday, I was getting up, slathering on some make up, then not taking it off properly because I was way too wrecked. Because I was still training a few times a week & neglecting my skin, it was a disaster. After skipping make up on Tuesday & Wednesday because I couldn't find the energy, I was absolutely disgusted on Thursday morning when I put on some foundation to go to the doctor. It literally flaked off my face because it was so dry.

 I love the squeezy tube, it's so easy to get out & it's handy to throw in your bag!

I ran (staggered) home, and cleansed my face straight away. And that night, I covered my face in LRP's Hydraphase Intense Masque. It's a white mask that absorbs into any dehydrated spots in your skin, & it is magical. Like, unicorn & fairy magical. If you look at yourself, you can literally see your skin drinking up as much cream as it can.

The mask is a light, white cream.

LRP recommend applying a thick layer on your face, leaving it for 10 minutes, then patting off the excess. I prefer to apply a thin layer, and just leave it on overnight. The result is lovely, soft, moisturised skin in the morning. I'm writing this about 24 hours after applying the mask & I'm happily stroking my baby soft face. Not in a creepy way, honest..

For €16.50, I can see why it's so raved about. I've gotten sic uses out of mine so far & it doesn't feel anywhere near empty yet (Though that may be different if you use a thick layer more than once a week.) I got mine in Sam McCauleys, but it should be available in all LRP stockists.

What are your favourite remedies for dry, icky skin?

  1. I'm such a convert to La Roche Posay products, I would happily head a fan club for their Cicaplast Baume. It's wondrous. For dry skin I've been using Elave Daily Skin Defence with SPF 45, it's brilliant.

  2. Hope you're feeling better Chloe - and totally agree with you on the wonders of this mask!

  3. This sounds lovely. I'm using the Jurlique Rose Overnight Mask at the mo and it's so lovely.
