The products of La Roche-Posay are all mild without stimulation, contains unique ingredient “Selenuim” which helps calming and healing skin problem. I got the B5 especially for recovering.
B5 looks like a toothpaste or sort of medical use cream. I am not a fan of the package because it is very difficult to open the lid, it sticks too well together and there’s click sound when you open it. By using the fingernail only! Plus, it is so sharp of the bottom. 🙁 It easily got dirty on the white package.
The texture is thick and heavy. I feel so oily after I apply on my face, feel like double cream to be honest. It’s not difficult to apply, but way too much oily. I’m afraid if I put the makeup on, it will fade. Therefore, I think te the cream better to use at night.
I apply quite a lot before going to sleep, and it amazingly absorb quite well in the night. Hmm…I don’t really know whether my pillow absorbs or my face does. Anyway, my skin is much softer and brighter. Moreover, my acne looks smaller in the another day. This B5 is actually helping the scars or dots, especially for pockmarks. If you looking for the immediately effective product, this definitely isn’t the one you want. But give a bit time, you will see the marks really lighter, and your skin looks much healthier.
Price is £4.90 for 40ml, and 40ml actually is able to use quite a while. Good price. I do recommend it, but only like sleeping mask at night.
