It has been far too long since I've featured any skincare reviews on Mellow Mummy - sorry! This is my latest skin saviour, the Toleriane Dermo Cleanser by La Roche Posay from Lloyds Pharmacy.
La Roche Posay is a well know skin science clinic and their cosmetics are a well-respected brand that I have known of for years, but never tried before - they are only available in pharmacies. There is nothing fancy or floral about this cleanser, it is a very plain yet effective cleansing lotion that does exactly what it says on the tin, and does it well.
The Toleriane range by La Roche Posay is designed for intolerant skin; skin that may react in a number of different ways to some normal cosmetics through irritation, tightness or dryness and so it is important that there are no unnecessary ingredients which may irritate the skin. My skin is currently very unpredictable so this really appealed to me.
I really enjoyed using this cleanser because it leaves my skin feeling CLEAN. Sometimes a cream cleanser can leave your skin feeling clean but heavy and you need to use a toner afterwards to clear it all off... but this Toleraine Dermo Cleanser is so light that afterwards, it feels as if you have both cleansed and toned at once. I think this is probably down to the use of thermal spa water as the base for the lotion and which is known to offer skin-soothing properties.
I use this cleanser as a daily cleaner for my skin and to remove make-up. I use it neat on a piece of cotton wool but it is also recommended for use as a wash-off cleansing wash. I love the feeling of my skin after use and I can see why this cleanser is recommended by dermatologists.
The Toleriane Dermo Cleanser costs £11 at Lloyds Pharmacy for 200ml which is very good value for a high-end cleansing milk.
