Today’s #FaceMaskFriday is a real treat for anyone with dry or dehydrated skin – and as it’s finally summer it’s the perfect pick-me-up for holiday-goers too! Our lovely colleague Kyle often complains about her dehydrated skin, so we thought she was the perfect guinea pig for the La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque. Let’s find out how she got on!
La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Mask
Dry, dehydrated skin/ skin that is often exposed to the sun.
‘I use several La Roche-Posay products as part of my every day skincare routine, so I was excited to try out a mask that promised to ‘improve skin’s suppleness and softness’. Everyone seems to be loving La Roche-Posay, – it’s affordable, accessible, and does the job without too much complication. The Hydraphase Intense Masque smells divine – definitely a plus in the world of face masks (I’ve tried a few!).
The directions stated to put a ‘thick layer’ on – so trying to play by the rules, I did so. This meant using A LOT of product (not sure how many uses a bottle will give you based upon one application). It’s recommended you keep this on for around 10 minutes – it doesn’t absorb completely into skin so make sure you don’t fall asleep with this on!
Having just returned from a sunny holiday, my face definitely needed an extra boost of moisture. I felt like my skin had been nicely plumped and smoothed after removing this masque.’
‘I’d recommend using this in place of after-sun, it’s really that hydrating. It’s lovely and soothing (perfect for my sensitive skin) and left my skin feeling beautifully soft. Definitely one for the warmer summer months or for dry skin in need of a little coddling from time to time.’
