Skin Analysis & Drugstore Skincare – Advertorial

Sunday, 17 April 2016




Over the past couple of years my knowledge of beauty and skincare has expanded further than I ever thought it would. My skin was relatively clear as a teenager, and as such I didn't pay too much attention to skincare. I used an eclectic combination of whichever basic drugstore skincare was currently on offer and went on my life. Sure I had the occasional break out here and there, but it was never anything serious - never anything that didn't pass in a few days. My elder brother on the other hand, did have acne as a teenager, and low and behold the genes finally caught up with me in my twenties.





When La Roche-Posay offered me the chance to visit one of the leading dermatologists in London – Dr Stefanie Willams at Eudelo, I jumped at the chance. I'm always interested in learning more about acne, treatments and skincare and I knew that with Dr Stefanie I'd be in good hands.




I brought along some of the skincare products I'd been currently using, and we spoke about my lifestyle as well as any skin complaints I had.  Dr Stefanie first analysed my skin using a magnifying lamp, and then took me to through the high tech approach and analysed my skin using the Visia Skin complexion analysis machine.  We then discussed a skincare regime using solely affordable skincare from La Roche-Posay that would work for me. Skincare is difficult to get right for sensitive skin, which is why La Roche-Posay has a unique tolerance testing method on 450 people with sensitive skin – if just one person reacts, they go back to reformulation.



A product I hadn't considered adding into my routine before was an anti-ageing cream. I was recommended the La Roche-Posay Redermic R which is an anti ageing concentrate containing 0.3% retinol. The Redermic R is designed to correct the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone and premature sun damage.  The cream itself is incredibly silky, and easy to wear. It feels light, glides across the skin on application and I actually found that it didn't irritate my skin despite the retinol . I'm hoping it can help correct some of the UV damage my skin is suffering from, and I'm hopeful that on my next derm appointment – I'll see a difference in my skin analysis after using it alongside a good SPF.
The La Roche-Posay SPF50 Anthelios XL is a product which has quickly found it's way into my favourites list for the fact that is contains a high amount of sun protection without feeling heavy, or greasy on my skin – which is a rareity.



Another product on my recommendation list from Dr Stefanie williams, is the La Roche-Posay Puryifying Micellar Water. At morning time, I'd gently cleanse my skin and sweep some of the Micellar water onto my skin using a fresh cotton pad for a simple fuss free cleanse. It feels cooling, non sticky and super convenient.  Micellar water is fascinating because it can remove makeup, dirt and and grime without the need for rinsing afterwards, which makes it great for those sleepy Monday mornings where you'd rather be in bed. It takes it's name from Micelles – miniscule round balls of cleansing molecules which are suspended in water and act like magnets – clinging to the dirt and grime and taking it away with them in one clean sweep!

I tried a whole variety of products from La Roche-Posay, and if you'd like to hear about some of the other products I tried, then be sure to watch my review video below.

  1. I'd love to have my skin analysed, especially as someone who's had severe acne for so many years. I'm definitely going to have to look into La Roche-Posay too, my poor sensitive skin can flare up at just about anything when it's in the mood to!

  10. black mud

    The products are decent for the price. An unusual soap based on the famous Black Mud from the shores of the Dead Sea. Its special composition facilitates a gentle deep cleansing of the skin and is therefore particularly well suited for treating problematic skin.

  13. If you girls are looking for a derm, I used YoDerm, it's and online derm. You have to be in the the U.S though, and it only works in certain states. I had a dermatologist appointment sitting on my back porch. The appointment normally costs $59, but with this link you can save $20. https://yoderm.com/ref/4DsIvERKF96/

    The derm responded within a half hour and called prescriptions in for retin a and clindamycin lotion to my pharmacy. Thank you for your blog-I love reading it! Xoxo

  14. The particular Inclusion Body Myositis Treatment recommended by your expert will rely on the seriousness and kind of issues the nearness of other medical conditions and antagonistic responses to previous treatment.

  16. I too have sensitive skin and likely UV damage. I will check out the retinol cream and micellar water. I go outdoors a lot and am supposedly Vitamin D deficient so it's a double-edged sword. Don't want to get sun damage but need that Vitamin D.

  17. I just saw your video "My Pale Skin" and just had to come by and say that you are beautiful AND brave. I can't believe some people are so rude to make such hurtful comments to you: just goes to show that beauty is definitely more than skin deep, and those kind of people are lacking in that department!! My older daughter suffers from acne and we've found that eating broccoli a few times a week helps her. It's not a perfect fix, but it helps most of the time. Hugs to you from a friend in Calif.

  22. Skin dull and rough appearance Derma Vibrance with a tendency to flake. It tends to wrinkle more easily than oily skin.
    The sun, air pollution and these effects contribute to fester. Dry skin, is the most care needs. In the morning it Derma Vibrance would need treat the skin with a moisturizer as well as a nourishing cream at night.

  25. I’m so glad I tried Dermogenix after reading its reviews. It has a very smooth texture like nothing I’ve ever used before, I just love the feel of it and I like that it’s fragrance free. I have very sensitive skin so I wasn’t sure if these kind of Skin Care Products would work for me, but my wrinkles are so less noticeable as soon as I apply! My make up goes on so smooth over it. I just find it to be a very outstanding product and I would like to recommend to all , Just try Once!! Best Skin Care Products
