My skin can be a real bitch, especially in winter. It totally dried out whatever I did.
Nothing really helped. Using only water did not clear my skin from foundation and mascara+eyeliner.
Using the usual drugstore make-up removers and soaps made everything worse, that was when I turned to our local pharmacy in search of help.
I already have heard a lot of La Roche-Posay or Avène but have never tried it before.
The first product I bought about a month ago was the Effaclar micellar water to remove my eye make-up every night. After I discovered that it is really sensitive yet working on my skin I also used it to remove my foundation instead of using the sheets from Bebe. I did not use any other product additionally, only water afterwards and my skin got better and softer. Of course I also use a moisturizer by night but I guess it doesn’t matter which one you use, I have different ones.
This week I had to get a new bottle of the Effaclar micellar water and decided to also get the Toleriane face wash gel. It goes without any perfume or parabens and leaves my skin super soft after using it.
I do know that the products are expensive and this is kind of why I never tried them before. The thing is that I can really see and feel how my skin reacts to different products and I seem to have a sensitive skin in winter.
Also those products are no pr samples. I just wanted to tell you how happy I am that I finally tried La Roche-Posay.
