Not Sponsored: I placed an order with ULTA Beauty, the very beginning of this year. In that order, I  received this free La Roche Posay skincare routine sample kit. The last time I tried anything from La Roche Posay, was back in 2018. I had heard many good things about the brand, but the moisturizer I tried left me underwhelmed. I almost decided not to try this kit, but was curious as to how the other products from this brand would work for me. So I gave it a go and I'm glad I did. Let me share my thoughts with you on each product below.

La Roche Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser

This is a really good cleanser for anyone that has dry, normal or aging skin. La Roche Posay goes on to say its for normal to dry skin types and also sensitive skin types. The name for this cleanser tells it all. It's gentle. It's hydrating. I found the cleanser to be creamy. It applies really well to the skin. When you rinse the cleanser off your face, your skin will feel moisturized. It's not a heavy feeling. So this cleanser will not strip your skin. It's formulated with prebiotic thermal spring water, niacinamide, and ceramide-3. It maintains the skin's natural moisture barrier and pH. My favorite cleanser is REN Gentle Cleansing Milk, but if I ran out it I wouldn't mind using this cleanser on my face. My skin felt really good after using this. For acne prone and oily skin types, check out La Roche Posay's website for alternative options. They offer options for all skin types.

Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum

This serum is described as an "anti-aging ultra hydrating pure hyaluronic acid face and neck serum". I would describe its consistency as a liquid gel. It absorbs really well into the skin. Whenever you see the word hyaluronic, the word PLUMPING should come to mind. But then the second question should be, HOW MUCH PLUMPING? Not all hyaluronic acids are equal. This serum provides some plumping. Maybe if you're in your 20s or early 30s, this may be enough for you. But above those ages, you need something more serious. I would recommend Fresh Beauty's Kombucha Essence. So this was ok.

Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer

I reviewed this moisturizer back in 2018. I tried it again and still feel the same way :p but I didn't experience any pilling this time. So maybe they've improved the formula.

Anthelios Tinted Mineral Face Sunscreen SPF 50

Wear sunscreen!!! YES!!! This is a mineral sunscreen strictly for the FACE. There is a difference between MINERAL/PHYSICAL (sits atop the skin) and CHEMICAL (absorbs into the skin) sunscreens (you should read more about both of them to see which is right for you). This sunscreen has an SPF of 50 (Water resistant (40 minutes)). I LOVED EVERYTHING SO FAR! Let me add, that it applies evenly. It's not heavy, greasy or sticky. It's not perfume-y or scented. Its even recommended for sensitive skin. Now, the TINTED part. I don't really care for color in skincare. When I first applied it, I said how is this going to go over with someone fairer or darker than me. It blends into my skin, but it's going to be very obvious on fairer/darker skin tones. I liked it after it dried down. But I don't know how it will look on other skin tones. If you can, try a sample if possible. It's a very effective sunscreen other than that.
