Do You Need Gentle but EFFECTIVE Skincare?

Skin type.  Important to know, but also it can be a bit of an ever-changing situation.  The weather and your environment can all impact your skin; as can your diet and the dreaded 'mones.  Knowing your skin type is the first step to looking after your skin. 

More difficult to look after and care for - skin that is both sensitive and something else.  Sensitive and oily for example.  Products used to counteract oily skin tend to be more astringent - and astringent and sensitive do not a happy pairing make. 

Those suffering from what I like to call 'Sensitive +...' skin absolutely need to look for products that are formulated and tailored for their skin.

We're putting two products from the fantastic brand La Roche-Posay to the test.  All of La Roche-Posay products are designed for sensitive skin, whilst also targetting specific concerns.

  • ANTHELIOS has innovated sun protection in order to offer greater efficacy, tolerance and comfort for sensitive skin.
  • EFFACLAR provides daily care for acne prone skin.
  • LIPIKAR products are suited for dry to very dry and atopy-prone skin.
  • TOLERIANE provides treatment for allergies and hypersensitivity. 

We're going to be looking for 30 members to each put two La Roche-Posay products to the test.  If you fancy being among the first in New Zealand to try this world class brand tell us by taking our survey and putting your hand up!

Click here to take our pre-qualifying survey and put your hand up for this trial team!

And get chatting to us about skin type below - does yours change through the year, or depending on what you're doing?  Or has your skin been pretty much the same for as long as you can remember?

My skin on my face particularly is my weak point as a woman. I think all women can totally relate to what I'm saying - we all have that one 'area' or part of ourselves that makes us feel self-conscious or sometimes even 'un-pretty'. For me - that's my skin. Which is really challenging, I often can't wear make-up, because it just flakes off my forehead and nose and it is incredibly embarrassing, and if I'm not attempting to create a skin flake styled snow storm, my skin becomes so heated that my make-up literally feels like it's melting away. The struggle is real! This product range sounds truly magical. I have to use a variety of different brands and even homemade products to accommodate & manage my sensitive skin, but if these products really do what they say they do - I may have hit the jackpot & actually be able to use one range all the time! I'd really love to be considered to trial the La Roche-Posay products & feel that me & my not so perfect skin would be an ideal candidate to put it to the test! xxx **I have completed the survey, but it then took me to an error screen, so I'm unsure if it submitted properly? xx Thank you BR x

Unfortunately I am in the category of those with sensitive skin. I think I will always have this issue so for me it's about finding a product that will work my skin type. This sounds like a good brand.

My skin changes with the seasons. Dryer in winter and oilyer in summer. I have combination skin, so have more oil in the T section. Also have major issues with milia!!! Would love to find a cleanser that helps!

Would love to try EFFACLAR as I have acne-proned skin but also can't tolerate products with alcohol in them, so I have to be vigilant with the skincare I use. Still looking for the perfect skin care regime for me.

My skin is wishy washy it can be sensitive at times but right now it is not too bad so I will leave the survey for ladies that are really in need at present. Great opportunity

I am most definitely sensitive but oily - reacting by breaking out to almost everything! Would really want to give this line a go!

I have very sensitive and oily skin that is acne prone, but i have JUST gotten my skin routine on pack and am very scared to change it! I haven't had a pimple in a long time and my skin no longer hurts/ stings when i wash and then apply moisturiser. So i will pass this but would love to see how everyone else goes with it!

Love the sound of this, the sensitive + oily really speaks to me right now, especially with it being Winter. The EFFACLAR products look fab and would be the ones I'd want to try most.

25th June, 2018

I love trying new skincare. At the moment, my main concerns are blackheads and the odd pimple. I'm thinking that this is due to excess oil so I'd love to try these products and see if they help :)

Combination skin but sensitive so annoying to find anything decent

25th June, 2018

I've been having skin issues all year and can only imagine that this will continue in the winter months!

25th June, 2018

My skin is so thirsty at this time of year! I've been layering and layering moisturisers and by the end of the day, it's dry again.

24th June, 2018

I have super oily skin, gives me a shine no matter what I've tried. I also have sensitive skin.

24th June, 2018

My skin tends to get drier in the colder weather as is now! I am now getting more breakouts due to my hormone levels changing due to menopause so I am looking for a product that is more gentle on my aging skin

24th June, 2018

This sound like it could be promising. My skin is complicated and fussy. Sometimes oily, sometimes dry but always sensitive
