LA ROCHE-POSAY Skincare Review + Giveaway Worth Over £150

Honest Mum x La Roche PosayI’ve spent the summer holidays testing out skincare products by one of my all-time faves, La Roche-Posay and I’m pumped to share them with you (get it #Dadjoke). I know you’re all like, hurry up, give us the juice and let us enter the comp but bear with me! I took the pics at the start of the summer and am pretty impressed with my tan. P.S how cute are these gifted PJs by Cyber Jammies thanks to the Book Trust who sent me them!

Now, first-off, HUGE spoiler, my new GP asked me if I was my son, Oliver’s sister the other day (I know), and straight-faced, as well! BAHAHHA! That’s all you need to know about this range, right there!

La Roche Posay range

Now, if you missed the Instagram giveaway I hosted where you could win all the goodies you see here, this is your chance at another go on the roulette wheel if you enter via Rafflecopter below. You’re welcome huns!

First up though, let me walk you through the products (and there’s a cheeky Sanoflore addition too), giving you the low-down on how to get your skin super soft, nourished, protected and dewier than dew (!) for the glow-up you’ve always wanted.

The kids products are fab too (you’re in for a treat)!


LA ROCHE POSAY TOLERIANE ULTRA 8 Daily Soothing Hydrating Concentrate Face Mist (100ml)

Face Mist by La Roche Posay

A soothing and hydrating concentrate, it says to use daily but I’ve been using it several times a day. Plus, it’s so light, you barely feel it on your skin. It took me back to the facial water spray craze of my teen years I loved (did you even go to school in the 90 s if you didn’t use one?) and I sprayed the mist on mine and the kids’ faces to refresh us in the heatwave and noticed it reduced and even prevented heat rash when I used it.

Free from alcohol and fragrance, this spray is perfect for my super frustrating reactive self as it’s been formulated for allergic or ultra-sensitive skin and dries in milliseconds of applications leaving a velvety finish. It repairs the skin’s barrier and relieves itching, burning and stinging skin, alleviating redness too. Composed of Thermal Water and eight essential ingredients, it helps hydrates your skin, and I even felt it tighten it a little too. It’s so gentle, it can also be used around the eye contours, too.


SANOFLORE Organic Reines Elixir Des Reines Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Glow Serum (30 ml)


This dermatologist-tested cell-renewing pure royal jelly serum is suitable for the most sensitive of skin as with the ROCHE-POSAY products and is my go-to morning and night pre and post cleansing.

SANOFLORE is a legacy brand who’ve been sourcing ingredients from a botanical garden in one of France’s best-protected organic regions since 1972. They know their stuff.

With access to 350 aromatic and medicinal plants, SANOFLORE transform their formulas into high-performance complexes of essential oils and organic floral waters which smell OUT OF THIS WORLD (I implore you sniff one and soon, it’s kinda life-changing). The result of their flower empowered products like this one here is soft and supple skin that smells of a wild flower meadow. It tightens pores to boot, and illuminates the face. Filter? What filter?


LA ROCHE-POSAY Pure Vitamin c10 Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Oxidant Renovating Serum (30 ml)

LA ROCHE-POSAY Pure Vitamin c10 Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Oxidant Renovating Serum

Pure Vitamin C 10 prevent and improve ageing skin and coupled with the above products I feel like my entire skin routine has notched up a gear and it shows. In my pics, IRL and it’s given me a real confidence boost. I use this on a weekend for an extra boost and after a more thorough cleanse (I wear more make up on weekend) but I’m going to start using it daily as the fine lines on my forehead are barely visible now and my mum described me as radiant the other day. I’ll take that, mama, thanks!


LA ROCHE-POSAY Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repair Balm (100 ml)

LA ROCHE-POSAY Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repair Balm

As per, I use products designed for my kids on myself and chatting to other mamas, I know you do this too.

Bath products, skincare, even vitamins (ha), you name it, if it’s gentle enough for the little ones, it’s kind enough for me!  This Soothing Balm is a must-have.  With a healing double action formula to soothe and protect sensitive, irritated skin you can apply it to body, face and lips (it sorted Oliver’s chapped lips out) and can be used from babies 3 months old +. It’s 100% hypoallergenic skincare and non-comedogenic. Apply twice daily to pre-washed, clean and dried skin applying a layer. I used it on my elbows.



La Roche Posay anti itch stick

La Roche-Posay Lipikar AP+ Stick is the first stick dedicated to atopic eczema, and can be used whenever an itch is felt. With myself and my kids suffering from eczema, this helped relieve dry areas on elbows, behind the nears and on the ears. This really does work and meant less scratching and more playing this summer.


LA ROCHE-POSAY Anthelios dermo-pediatrics 50+ SPF Lotion and Ultra Resistant (250 ml, 50ml and 30 ml)


All SPFs here are lightweight fast-absorbing sunscreens for dry and sensitive skin free from preservatives, parabens, colorants and fragrance. My skin often reacts to sunscreen but not with these. I have a visible scar on my throat post thyroid-op which is delicate and prone to sunburn so along with other sensitive areas, I applied this liberally. The kids were covered in them all over these summer months, with lots left over in the 250ml.

Providing a broad spectrum defence against damaging UVA, UVB and infrared radiation, these creams combat inflammation and prickly heat while protecting your skin from the sun’s dangerous rays. Again, they feature the brand’s exclusive Thermal Spring Water. I love the mini 50 and 30ml handheld ones which are ideal in hand luggage when travelling or in your mama bag on day trips out.


LA ROCHE-POSAY Baby Cleansing Oil (200 ml)

La Roche-Posay Lipikar AP+ Cleansing Oil – a cleansing oil that helps reduce dryness and the symptoms of eczema-prone skin. Specifically formulated for uncomfortable skin, this coupled with the stick meant we could forget about itchy skin and enjoy the summer.

A super collection that deliver what they promise!

These items were gifted. All words, as always are honest.
