This is one of the products that I picked up during my trip to Paris earlier in the year. It's the only one that I bought with no prior knowledge of the product, but as I know that I always get flaking, chapped skin at some point during the year, I thought it might be worth picking up, especially as I hadn't seen it with the normal La Roche-Posay line that you find in Boots in the UK.
The packaging is the same as other La Roche-Posay products of the same sizing, like the Effaclar range etc, and I have no problems with it. It's simple, effective, minimilizes wasted product and looks nice and neat on my bathroom shelf.
As for how the product works, like I said earlier, it was the only thing that helped when I had really flaked and chapped skin. I tend to put it on before bed, as it's a little bit too thick and greasy to wear during the day, and I wake up with my skin feeling soothed and far less red and chapped. Now, I'm not going to say this is a miracle worker and that it healed my skin completely in one night (if anyone has a miracle product like that, I'd love to hear about it), but it did help with the healing process, and I noticed a difference in how quickly the chapped skin went away.
Do you have a go to product like this when a cold strikes? Let me know!
