La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque - Review

I never in a month of Sunday's (no pun intended) thought I would be typing up a post about 
a rehydrating mask given I have oily skin yet here I am with only positive things to say!

"A complementary step to your skincare routine, with high performance hydration. Hydraphase intense masque contains ingredients to hydrate, soothe and comfort the skin, while improving skins suppleness and softness. The formula is enriched with: La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring water, for its soothing effect and Hyaluronic acid fragments to infuse and retain water in the skin for to maintain hydration. Skin is intensely hydrated and immersed in soothing comfort. Skin feels more supple and soft. Non-perfumed. Hypoallergenic. Non-comedogenic. With soothing La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring water. Paraben-free."

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque has been formulated for sensitive skins that require a little tender loving care be it hydration, soothed or comfort your skin requires. 
For me this is not a regular treatment but rather one I keep stashed away for when my skin has 
a little mishap, in the warmer months my skin can often feel tight, itchy and generally unbearable
so this little tube has came in handy on more than one occasion.
The light gel formula of the mask glides on and instantly soothes and calms the skin
while lightly adding a little layer of moisture without overloading and reeking havoc with my oily skin.

If like myself you trial lots of products and/or are partial to the allergic reaction
or perhaps have sensitive skin that is a little unpredictable then La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque is the product for you. It is a complete godsend for any product allergic reactions but also a lovely treat as it really does leave the skin soft and nourished after just one treatment.

La Roche-Posya Hydraphase Intense Masque* is available from selected Boots stores but not currentlyonline as of yet but you can check out the full line of available products - here.
I'm going to pick up a good few products as the line is affordable but provides great results.

    1. Me too :) yes it does have a pharmacy sort of feel :)

  3. If you loved it and have oily skin (I have too in Summer) then I will definitely be picking this up! I've never heard of or noticed it before and I'm excited to try it now.

    1. Like you I'm fairly new to the brand and very much excited to try new products from it :) please let me know if you pick up anything and what your thoughts are :)

  4. I've just recently discovered la roche I use their gel cleanser which is amazing for oily sensitive skin. Definitely going to go see if this in my local boots store sounds like it will work wonders with my skin at the moment xo

    1. Oh that goes top to the top of my list, thank you for the suggestion :)

    2. * to the top of my list...not that nonsense I just typed haha!

  5. I've tried moisturizer, but not a masque... Maybe next time :)

  6. Wow, this sounds great! I had an incident of over exfoliating, that resulted in a chemical burn on my neck (I know, should know better..), and this would most surely have been a help!

  7. Oh this looks great! I've been using a No7 moisture mask but think this will be more suited to my parched sensitive skin more :)

  8. Lovely product, and a great brand.
    Would you you to go have a little look at my Monaco beauty blog,
    Kelly :) xxx

  9. I've just used my first La Roche-Posay product - Effaclat Mat, a mattifying mouturiser - and I was well impressed. Really light but moisturising. Will hunt this mask down too!
