La Roche Posay Lipid-Replenishing Body Balm - Review

La Roche-Posay Lipid Replenishing Body Balm is a fragrance and paraben-free body balm for extremely dry, irritated skin, or skin that is prone to itching. Formulated with a very high concentration of shea butter and canola oil, it helps repair the skin’s lipid barrier, is gentle enough to be used on children and it seems to last forever due to the highly emollient properties of the cream. A little goes a very long way.

Although it’s a very good thing to leave out potentially irritating fragrance in products designed for sensitive skin, I have to be honest and say that I don’t like the way this product smells, it’s ever so slightly sour.

That said, it IS one of the most hydrating body creams I’ve ever used. In the winter when my skin feels dehydrated from central heating, I find this product to be absolutely brilliant in restoring moisture. However, a lovely fragrance is really important to me in body cream.

Yet another great product from this brand, will there ever be a product that is not actually that good?!

You can buy this online from Boots for £13.98

Have you ever tried this product and did it help your skin?

  7. Great review lovely, I'm quite lucky with my skin and have yet to find a product which really doesn't work x


  8. love the hydration factor-- we could've used some of that on our winter vacay, although I'm with ya on the smell, I get the no perfumes added but I do like even just a hint of something flowery, esp. if it's something I'm gonna use often.
