La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Legere - The One that made Joanne forget about her Creme de la Mer....

It's a tale as old as time.  Big Sis gets something in the post.  Big Sis loves and uses it all the time, falling in The Love with it.  Big Sis sees Little Sis's skin is in flitters and pauses.  Sighing, Big Sis hands over the product to Little Sis in a very generous move altogether, one that shouldn't be forgotten ahem.  Big Sis tells Little Sis to use the product on her visage.  Little Sis doesn't.  Big Sis sits on Little Sis (not really) and tells her to shut her pie hole and use La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Legere and thank her later.

Joanne's experience:
"To me, having flake free skin is a like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow - something I've always wanted and searched for but never found.  I've tried so many lotions and potions over the years to help my skin from oils to Creme de la Mer to Vaseline.  You name it, I've done it, ate it and tried it!!  I thought I'd tried everything and nothing would work for me until "Oh Wise One" aka Karen (Karen here, I totally didn't get her to write that but I think that's how I'd like to be called from now on) suggested I try La Roche Posay Hydraphase."  (Karen here again, I had been using it and suggested she try it and I haven't seen it since ahem)

"She told me all about it and how amazing it was supposed to be and I vacantly nodded like a good little sister and did what I was told.  It comes in a 50ml tube and one pump is plenty to cover your face.  Plus it gets brownie points for having an SPF20 too.

I honestly thought I'd try it for a couple of weeks, see a slight bit of difference and then going back to trying a mixture of everything on my bedside locker.  But I was shocked.  Literally shocked at the huge difference I found in my skin in three days.  THREE DAYS PEOPLE!!  The worst are on my face for dryness was my forehead and within the three days, I could rub my forehead and there wasn't a flake to be seen.  I even have Lovely Mammy Bits rubbing my forehead when I see her as I still can't believe what great condition my skin's in.  No more dry, sometimes sore skin.

I've been using Hydraphase for about six weeks now and there's still lots left to use so I can't tell you how long you'll get from a tube.  If you have dry/sensitive skin, I honestly can't recommend Hydraphase enough for you.  This is my Holy Grail moisturiser folks."

Karen here again.  So yeah, am I not the best sister in the world and I have saved Joanne a bunch of cash as this is only €22.  That's nothing for a fantastic moisturiser that has Hyaluronic Acid Fragments that cause your skin to lock in water to keep it hydrated for longer.  As Joanne said above, it has SPF 20 and protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays.  It's paraben free and will cause your sister to owe you big time.  Result!  Now as I mentioned above, I was using it too before handing it over dutifully and loved it too.  I'll have to get my own bottle now!

Have you tried Hydraphase yet ladies?
