La Roche-Posay Toleriane Fluide Review

Finding an ideal moisturizer for a combination to oily skin type is a task in itself.
There are few options in the market but they don't tackle the skin issues such skin
type people usually face.

This moisturizer (La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide) which is French made is
specifically designed for such skin types by limiting the number of ingredients
that go in. Lot of French brand manufacture products which are not just
designed for the typical skin types(Oily, Dry, Combination) but also cater
to sensitive skin types which are apparently left out.

Price-  INR 1190 for 40 ml

Ingredients -  Aqua/ Water, Squalane, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Carbomer,
Sodium Hydroxide, Ethyl-Hexyl Glycerine, Caprylyl Glycol.

Product Description :

Indication - Hydration and Protection of Combination to oily intolerant skin.

Properties - Formulated with a high concentration of La Roche- Posay thermal
spring water, Toleriane Fluide soothes the pulling , stinging and burning sensations
specific to intolerant skin.

Its light, matifying texture is instantly absorbed by the skin and restores skin

A strict formulation charter, with a minimum number of components, to limit the
risk of allergy. High tolerance tested under dermatological control.


My Take on La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide (Soothing Protective Non Oily Emulsion):

Finally I came across a moisturizer which my skin seems to be in love with.
So a little brief about my skin type,which is combination cum sensitive and
acne prone too. So finding an appropriate moisturizer for my complex skin
type was a task for all these years. Though I always banked on aloe Vera gel
and Neutrogena moisturizer for that matter but they could never address some
underlying skin issues I had, like my face getting red,flaky and quite irritable
after using acne medications. So these moisturizer's dint seem to do enough for
my skin.

Toleriane fluide does the perfect job of hydrating the skin which is also the
requirement of oily skin contrary to what people believe. It seems ideal for
even combination skin type. As it is non comedogenic my skin never broke out.
I love how it instantly gets absorbed by the skin by giving a matifying look.
I use it as a daily day time moisturizer under my sunscreen from the same brand
which I will review soon. It gives the ideal amount of hydration a skin would
require during day time.

Pros :

  • Light weight
  • Non comedogenic/does not break out
  • Fragrance free
  • Paraben free
  • Preservative free
  • Matifying texture
  • Good for intolerant skin and also rosacea
  • Provides instant hydration
  • Best for oily/acne prone skin
  • Hypo allergenic
  • Serves as a makeup base for oily skin
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Uses thermal spring water
  • Easy pump dispenser bottle
  • Very soothing on the skin

Cons :

  • Availability (though available on most online shopping sites yet its not available at times)
  • Price for the quantity offered

    TBLP Rating : 5/5
# I would still rate it 5 despite the few cons I mentioned.

Recommendations : A big yes if you are in lookout for a good moisturizer for
oily/combination skin prone to acne, which doesn't make your skin greasy and
yet provides instant matifying hydration.

Postponing Skin Problems with Simple Anti-Aging Tips

Some skin problems are unavoidable, especially when you get older.
However, a lot of them can easily be postponed by taking good care of
your skin from an early age. Here are some simple anti-ageing tips
that can help you to keep your skin looking healthy as you get older.

Know How Your Skin Health Works
It's impossible to keep your skin healthy if you don't understand the
components that make it healthy in the first place. Your body produces
certain hormones, proteins, and other substances that strengthen its cells
throughout your lifetime. As you get older, a natural part of ageing is that
hormones start to drop off, contributing to weakened cells throughout your
body, but obviously the only visible ones are the ones that make up the
surface of your skin. That's a natural process.

Of course, there are several other things that can also cause your skin to
become less healthy, and many of them are the same things that can cause
problems with your general health as well. They include drinking too much
alcohol, not getting enough sleep, getting too much sun, having an unhealthy
diet, smoking, or not drinking enough water. If you have any combination of
those issues, or if your skin has been exposed to too many harsh chemicals,
you are bound to have skin problems, particularly later in

Undergoing Regular Skin Treatments Isn't Your Only Option

Some people opt to keep wrinkles, sun spots, and other blemishes away
by undergoing laser therapy and other skin treatments on a regular basis.
Well, if your skin problems are fairly advanced, that's not a bad idea.
In fact, you may have even used medical laser treatment on your skin before.
But even if you have there are ways to delay going back for more laser

Protect Your Skin from Outside Influences

First of all, you should protect your skin from outside influences as much
as possible. That includes UV rays from sun exposure or tanning. It also
includes limiting the number of chemicals you expose it to. A simple
thing like changing your chemical-filled personal care products for more
natural or milder ones might help you to restore and maintain a healthier glow.

Lead a Generally Healthy Life

The other big tip is to lead a generally healthy life. Think of your skin as
being an outer reflection of what is going on inside your body. Wrinkles,
lines, acne, and other blemishes can indicate internal issues that need to be
dealt with, such as a poor diet or not getting enough rest each night.
You might find that, by correcting some of those things, your skin
problems start to correct themselves.

Caring for Your Skin Applies All the Time

Finally, keep in mind that caring for your skin applies all the time.
You should have a daily cleansing and moisturizing routine that you
follow, and you should stick to that routine no matter what happens.
Even if you have a face lift, laser treatment, a chemical peel, or some
other clinical procedure, it's important to keep caring for your skin.
Otherwise, you might need to have a lot more clinical procedures than
you planned on.

Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water Review

I have always been look out for a facial mist or water which soothes and
relieves my skin from the redness and irritations caused by acne treatments.
I wasn't aware of any such thing like Thermal water and its benefits untill
recently when I visited my Dermatologist and she advised I use Eau
Thermale Avene Thermal Spring water. And then I did a research as to
find out which spring water would be the best and Avene stood out.

So here's the review of the same, find out more about it below.

Price: INR 550 for 50 ml

Ingredients: Avene Thermal Spring water(Avene Aqua) , Nitrogen.

Product Description:  Key element for sensitive , hypersensitive, allergic
and irritated skin.

Its unique and constant composition gives it soothing and anti-irritating
properties proven by numerous scientific studies. Tested by dermatologists,
it is a key element for sensitive, hypersensitive and allergic skin.

Usage: Diaper rash, Various irritations, Razor burn, After hair removal,
To set makeup , Sunburns, Facial redness, After exercise, In summer,
During travel.

Spray a fine mist on your skin. Wait for a few minutes, then gently pat dry.

My Take on Avene Thermal Spring Water: If I have to describe this product
 in one word I'd say "magical".It holds true to its claim, after spraying on to
your skin it makes it soft and supple by hydrating it well. It's the best facial
mist for people with rosacea and redness caused by sunburn, rash or acne
treatment. There are many other French brands selling spring water but this
one seems to be the best so far.I don't have rosacea but when my skin
gets red with use of certain acne treatments this is first thing i spray on
my face and Voila the redness caused by the inflammation subsides.

It has very less salt content so you don't really need to wipe off the excess
after spraying.  It gets easily absorbed by skin without making it dry unlike
other spring water brands.

It a must have in your bag to freshen up your face or prep your face before
makeup.It helps to set the makeup when used after. Models across the world
swear by this product to get an instant boost of skin hydration.

  • Hydrates skin well

  • Best suited for all skin types 
  • Acts as a toner too
  • Can be used along with acne treatments
  • Makes skin soft and smooth

  • Freshens up tired face

Cons : Price could be one such cons but as long as it continues the magic 
it does to my skin, I am definitely buying it time and again. 

TBLP Rating : 5/5

Recommendations: Its my HG facial mist/ spring water. I never wanna let
go off this product.Thank god Avene came up with such a worthy product.
