What are the best La Roche-Posay products?

Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50

Finding its way into many skincare routines, the Anthelios SPF is a real crowd-pleaser. Equipped with exclusive filter MEXORYL400, the sun cream wards off damage caused by UVA, UVB and ultra-long UVA rays, offering high protection with extra-lightweight overage. The SPF fluid is also suitable for sensitive skin types, and is light enough to appear seamless under makeup.

Oily skin? Why not try the Anthelios Oil Control Fluid SPF50, delivering comfortable, mattifying protection to blemish-prone skin.

Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Serum

Restore skin’s bounce with this hydrating hyaluronic acid serum. Blended with vitamin B5 and two sizes of hyaluronic acid, the formula offers intense hydration to help soften the look of fine lines while fighting against environmental aggressors. Apply morning and night, pressing gently into face and neck.

Cicaplast Baume B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm

Perfect for sensitive skin types, this ultra-rich balm helps to restore, repair and replenish stressed-out skin. The formula delivers an instant soothing sensation, thanks to the brand’s exclusive thermal spring water, cicaplast and 5% panthenol for the ultimate calming treat. You can even apply this balm on broken skin, or use post-injury – it’s one for the whole family!

Effaclar Duo Plus

A dual-action daily gel moisturiser for oily and blemish-prone skin types. Working to both nourish and purify your complexion, the formula provides gentle micro-exfoliation to help decongest while minimising the look of imperfection, thanks to salicylic and lipo-hydroxy acids. Topped with niacinamide and zinc PCA to brighten and hydrate, the moisturiser also seeks to reduce the appearance of excess sebum oil for a mattified (yet comfortable) finish that layers well with makeup.

Pure Vitamin C10 Serum

Designed to brighten, this vitamin C serum helps to refine and unify the look of your complexion. Pure vitamin C works to smoothen the appearance of fine lines while restoring a radiant quality to the skin, softened with hyaluronic acid to plump skin with moisture. Salicylic acid gently removes dead skin cells for a smoother-feeling surface, revealing a glowing complexion.

Retinol 0.3% + Vitamin B3 Serum

A concentrated serum to help renew all skin types with powerful anti-ageing action. Infused with vitamin B3 alongside 0.3% pure and gradual release retinol, the formula works to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles, supporting natural collagen production for smoother, brighter, youthful-looking results. Always follow with an SPF in the daytime.

Toleriane Sensitive Fluid Moisturiser

Formulated for sensitive skin, this lightweight, oil-free moisturiser seeks to calm, soothe and hydrate. The brand’s thermal spring water instantly nourishes and comforts, delivering a surge of moisture to your skin. The fragrance-free cream is designed for combination to oily skin types that are prone to skin intolerances.

Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel

Kickstarting oily skin routines the right way, this cleansing gel is the perfect purifying formula to help remove daily dirt, oil and impurities. The gel features the brand’s thermal spring water to help condition the skin as it cleanses, avoiding stripping the skin of its natural moisture for an ultra-fresh and always comfortable finish.
