La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme

La Roche Posay Rosaliac CC Creme La Roche Posay CC Creme 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.

  1. I'm a big fan of La Roche-Posay, i'll have to give this a try, thanks for the honest review!



  2. I had no idea La Roche-Posay did a CC creme would love to try it. I love their Effaclair duo it really helped my skin. hope you are well, your prize will be with you very soon i was just waiting to be paid. xx Laura www.ascottishlass.com

  4. I'm glad you like it :) I actually already do follow your blog Diana via GFC :) x

  5. It's a nice CC Creme I just would prefer a lighter shade :) Effaclar Duo + has worked really well for me, I'm quite the fan and do not rush Laura, I can happily wait; I'm just super grateful. Thank you! :) xx

  6. You're welcome Sophie, I'm glad you like the sound of it xx

  7. I agree with you, I bought the spf 50 tinted moisturiser and that is also in a universal shade and it went far too orange my skin! How can someone very pale and someone with medium skin where the same thing?? I don't get it haha.

    Laura xx


  8. Ahh what a shame! I've never understood the 'one shade suits all' thing, how can it!? I've been really wanting to try this, as well, I don't think I'll be bothering now. Thanks for the review Amy!

  9. I agree on LRP being the popular choice for skin care especially on sensitive skin. I especially like their Tolerine range.. The nu fuss hydrators are great for my skin all year around!


  10. Me neither, it's an odd claim to make by any brand in my book xx

  11. I think because you're quite pale too that you would have the same problem Jess. It's a nice product but the poor shade lets us pale folks down xx

  12. I've never tried that range to be honest but a few other things that I have tried have been really good :) xx

  13. Thank you very much Emma :) xx

  14. It's such a shame about the shade range as it sounds lovely! I don't think it'd be any good for me though as Im super pale too! xo

  15. I really wanted to give this a try, being a bit of a new fan of La Roche-Posay, but after seeing another blogger also comment that it's a little too orange I don't think I will be trying it as I'm one of the pale ones! x

  16. Sadly I think you may struggle with it too Becky, we need a lighter shade in it xx

  17. It really is such a shame about the shade, I think it would be really popular if it was lighter.



  18. I completely agree, maybe if I somehow get a tan it might suit me in mid summer xx


Thank you for stopping by!
