Investing in Skin Care: La Roche-Posay
I turn thirty this year and it got me thinking about my skin care routine. I have dehydrated, dry skin and I’m pretty much in constant state of searching for the holy grail skin care items that will actually give me results. I’m constantly trying different products that are marketed at dry skin, however most of the time I don’t see much of a difference in the appearance or feel of my skin. The majority of the skin care products that I normally buy are under the £10 mark and I felt I should start spending a bit more money on my skin care, especially as I’m not of a normal skin type (by normal I mean people who have neither overly dry or overly oily skin).
Now I’m not saying that cheaper, drug store items aren’t good, there are plenty of products that cost less than their high-end equivalent and that work just as well if not better. However I just wanted to start spending a bit more and adding in some additional items into my skin care routine. That being said I wasn’t about to start spending £50+ on each individual item, when I say I want to invest more in my skin care I mean I want to really look into items and look into if they will work for me and not just buy whatever is on offer or is cheap. I’m not going to bankrupt myself for the sake of a couple of less laughter lines but I’m also not going to scrimp when it comes to what I put on my face.
The new addition to my skin care routine is the Hydraphase Intense Serum from La Roche-Posay. I got a promotion at work recently and received a Boot’s gift card from my old team which was so lovely, so of course after already doing lots of research into the serum I wanted I knew exactly what I would be spending it on. Over the years I’ve heard so many good things about various products from La Roche-Posay and after reading lots of reviews online about this serum I was excited to give it a go!
As of yet I haven’t tried it out, I’ll be using it for the first time this evening (I’m writing this on Sunday afternoon) so will report back on how I find it but I’ve got high hopes, so I’m hoping it works out.
What are your holy grail skin care items? I’d love to hear your recommendations, particularly for dry skin!
