Mattifying Moisturiser | La Roche Posay Review

Today I thought I would come back with a little skincare post to continue on from my previous blog post, on the Botanics skincare range
For my everyday skincare routine I have been using those products along with this La Roche Posay moisturiser, so I thought I would fill you in on my thoughts and if it will be something I will continue to use as a staple in my skincare...


I really like La Roche Posay products so I was excited to try this. I love moisturisers but I am always very reluctant on what I use with having such oily skin, so seeing this anti-shine and anti-enlarged pores matte moisturiser was like music to my ears. The consistency is really nice, a thin gel which feels lovely and cooling on the skin and won me over straight away, because one thing I know is I don't like is a thick, heavy moisturiser. I've been using this for quite a few weeks now and I love the formula, it soaks into the skin straight away and leaves your skin feeling so smooth. But one thing which hasn't seemed to work as well for me is the anti-shine, I do feel like it slightly minimises the pores but I still feel myself getting just as shiny throughout the day. This was disappointing for me as I did think it would keep my oils at bay for a little longer than usual, even though I know it is a moisturiser, I did expect a little more from it and have tried all different primers, powders and foundations to see if there is any other way too make it work, without much luck.

I will be continuing to use this product and for anyone who doesn't have very oily skin, it will probably be great for you, as the formula is lovely for an everyday skincare product.

But it looks like I'll be back to the drawing board once this product runs out! If you have any suggestions you think I will love, please let me know :) ?
