I have raved about the La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour for months now so I thought it was about time I dedicated an entire blog post to this super product.
This product has genuinely changed my eye area, for the better.
I first discovered this gem last year when I developed an irritation in my eye area, particularly on my lids. Dryness, itchiness and redness plagued me for weeks. Anything I used would only irritate it further and I was worried because I could really see my skin becoming crepy and dehydrated and I wanted to stop this before it left lasting damage. I was recommended this product by a pharmacist and it instantly gave me relief. My problem didn’t go straight away but it did go within two to three weeks.
So, why is this product so good?! Well, the results from this product really is down to the ingredients. It contains soothing and moisturising ingredients but without any anti-aging properties which would only irritate already sensitive eyes. Neurosensine and Nicacinamide provide relief from puffiness and discomfort. This product also includes the thermal spring water which the brand are so well known for. It’s jammed with all this goodness but equally as important it is free from paraben, fragrance, alcohol, colorant and lanolin.
The formulation of this product is fantastic. It is very lightweight and non sticky, almost like a white gel. As a result the product’s molecules are so tiny that this allows for the properties to penetrate deep into the delicate skin around the eye area without blocking the ducts etc. The gel like consistency is also very cooling and hence ultra soothing on the area. It honestly can take down irritation immediately. With prolonged use it will also get rid of any redness or puffiness left after the irritation subsides.
The packaging is pretty impressive too. The ultra-hermetic technology used means that this product is airtight so you can be sure that the product inside is free from any contamination, oxidation and is not going to dry up. It also makes sure that there is no waste as the pump dispenses just enough for your two eyes. The bottle is clear so it is easy to see how much product you have left. Trust me, you won’t want to run out of this!
I did mention previously that there are no anti-aging properties present in this product which is great for anyone with sensitivity. However, this may not be the best choice for anyone concerned with aging in that area. I am 32 now and do have fine lines around my eyes but I know most of it is down to dehydration and when I use this product I noticed considerable difference in that area. Yes, I most definitely will need some anti aging creams soon enough but for now I am happy to slather my eyes in this beauty twice a day (morning and evening). If my eyes are really dry I will take a small amount of this on my ring fingers and gently pat it over my makeup for an extra boost during the day. I have had no issue with it ruining my makeup.
I love the fact that this can be used all over the eye area including the lids and right up under the eye. This for me is a huge bonus as most of my dryness is on my lids.
This comes in a 20ml bottle which will last a fair while because you need so little. It will set you back €19-€20 depending on where you buy it. It is available in pharmacies nationwide including most Boots stores.
I promise you, you won’t be disappointed with this product. It is a super star!
