When it comes down to skincare nine times out of ten the brand La Roche-Posay is one that I know I can trust. Hence when it came down to trying a CC Creme from the brand I have to admit I found this to make me quite curious, just how good would it be?
The La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme* has been formulated for those with sensitive skin, in particular for those who suffer from redness. Adapted to suit skin tones ranging from fair to medium this CC Creme is only available in one universal shade which ultimately is what I believe to be the fundamental downfall of this product.
In terms of texture and coverage this is quite a nice product and is most certainly something I would wear on a daily basis for a nice light natural coverage if it wasn’t for the fact that it does look slightly orange on my skin. In the above picture I’ve blended it out quite a bit on the back of my hand however there is still a contrast to be seen there where my wrist meets my hand. It’s not horrendous and is something I could get away with however my neck is pretty pale so I’m sure you can appreciate it would look a little odd; plus who wants to stand blending like crazy at 7am? The texture works quite beautifully on the skin and it blends really nicely with either your fingers or bush therefore overall I find it really is quite hard to fault the product in any way other than for the shade range, which I argue is flawed because in my opinion how can one shade suit so many skin tones within the range of fair to medium? You only have to look in Boots to find quite a variety of foundations of different shades from regular high street brands; this of course widens the more higher end you go.
In regards to coverage I would say that this is fairly light and can be built up a little however with the shade being slightly off on me I wouldn’t fancy piling more of this on at all. The CC Creme claims to cover blemishes and whilst it does to that to an extent if you’re looking for a little more coverage or you do suffer from these extensively then personally I would avoid this.
This is a lovely CC Creme and would work particularly well for those with sensitive skin as previously discussed, it also contains a fairly good SPF30 which is always welcome and boasts a paraben free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (oil free) formula so it really does take into consideration those with more of a sensitive skin type.
Overall this is a bit hit and miss to me as I would enjoy wearing it at this time of year as it provides nice light coverage which is what I like and also contains SPF, it’s just a shame about the shade.
