It’s Spring now here in the UK, sunny🌞but still windy and after wintry weather, cold winds and mask wearing😷I felt that I would like a soothing, milky cleanser for my face. I immediately thought of a product that I sampled some time ago.  Back in the good old days of 2019, before the pandemic, I went to one of my favourite events - the annual “Allergy and Free From Show” at the Olympia in London. La Roche-Posay, a brand known for their gentle skincare products, played a prominent part at the show and their stand attracted many visitors. They also sponsored an excellent talk on skincare for sensitive and allergy-prone skin.  At the time, I wrote about it all, here's the link to that post:-


At the show, I was given a little sample bottle** (just enough to try for a few days) of La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser and I was very impressed. So recently I decided to go to Boots the Chemist to buy it. There was even a special offer of 25% off and the normal price, £12.50, was reduced to £9.37.😊Boots have been doing a lot of good offers lately.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

Although my skin is not allergy-prone or very sensitive, I find that neither harsh nor oily skincare products suit it.  I always aim to keep skincare simple, gentle, clean and bland.  La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser is a wipe-off cleansing milk specially designed to gently clean sensitive, intolerant or allergy prone skin.  Fragrance free, the ingredients include glycerine and La Roche-Posay Thermal Water.*

I apply the cleanser gently with my finger tips and then carefully wipe it off with a soft, 100% cotton, Boots Oval Cotton Wool Pad.  It can be rinsed off if preferred. It removes my makeup and leaves my skin clean and feeling soft, hydrated and comfortable. Although it is hydrating, it isn’t oily or greasy.  Perfect!

*The ingredients are:

609129, Aqua/Water, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Capryl Glycol/Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin (Code F.I.L: B3089/6).

It is always wise to check ingredients of skincare products.

**The products mentioned above were NOT GIFTED. The very small, not-for-sale, sample was offered to all visitors to try.
