The Anti-Aging Cream La Roche-Posay Redermic R Review: Does it really work?
When it comes to anti-aging skincare, every routine and every product should count – that’s not to mention these have cost implications for your resources too, money and otherwise time and effort. But what makes a real difference is when you get to optimize skincare benefits of your routine and products. You can do that simply by better understanding your skin, your skin issues and how exactly these routines and products interact with your skin’s natural processes and make up.
You should know by now that your objective during the day is to protect your skin, while at night, your goal is to support your skin to repair and regenerate.
Product Description, Manufacturer’s Information, and Price Details
La Roche-Posay subscribes to this day and night routine as well. That’s why there is La Roche-PosayRedermic R for night time use and La Roche-PosayRedermic C for day time use.
This product is practically a deep penetrating, heavy moisturizer infused with Retinol, the gold standard in topical anti-wrinkle care. As it tackles your fine lines and wrinkles with corrective and moisturizing care, La Roche-PosayRedermic R also stimulates skin to resurface new skin by exfoliating the skin’s top layer, often containing dead skin cells and tough, pore-clogging impurities that damage skin.
It is indicated for use on skin suffering from both wrinkle damage and sun damage. This product is recommended for use on all skin types by its makers.
Every 30 ml tube of La Roche-PosayRedermic R costs $57.
La Roche-Posay Redermic R Ingredients
Active ingredients include:
- Retinol Booster Complex, consists of Adenosine and Retinyl Linoleate, peptides that help prop up skin and improve retinol penetration so that it reaches your skin’s deepest layers where it is needed to correct processes that cause skin aging, even inhibit melanin which causes dark spots and skin darkening
- Beta-Lipohydroxy Acid (LHA), micro-exfoliates skin without unnecessarily damaging otherwise healthy skin cells
The ingredients found in every tube of La Roche-PosayRedermic R are: Aqua / Water, IsostearylNeopentanoate, Glycerin, Octyldodecanol, Propylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycine Soja Oil / Soybean Oil, Triethanolamine, Isohexadecane, Sodium Hyaluronate, Retinol, Retinyl Linoleate, Adenosine, Capryloyl Salicylic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol, Polysorbate 80, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum / Fragrance
Cleanse skin thoroughly. Tone skin and air dry. Apply La Roche-PosayRedermic R on face, neck and décolleté using a gentle, upward, circular massage. Use at night only and never use during the day. Retinol can cause skin to become more prone to sun damage so make sure to lather on your sunscreen religiously every day. For best results, use with La Roche-PosayRedermic C for day time use.
La Roche-Posay Redermic R Pros and Cons
La Roche-PosayRedermic R may be an expensive moisturizer plus Retinol. Its fragrance content also may cause those with sensitive skin to become reactive and irritated.
Skin aging needs special care. However, proper care should not require you to break the bank, and yet again, you have your own threshold. If this product fits your budget, it may be worth a try but, if you’re looking to spend less, you’ll surely find other, perhaps even better, alternatives.
As we age the composition, texture and appearance of our skin changes. Signs of skin aging include wrinkles, fine lines, loss of moisture, uneven tone, and dull, tired-looking skin. There are countless anti-wrinkle creams on the market promising to make skin look and feel younger. Many anti-wrinkle creams promise everything short of a facelift or to provide the much sought after "fountain of youth". In reality most are just moisturizers marketed as anti-aging products.
Below you’ll find some of the most effective wrinkle serum/cream formulations on the market today, in our opinion.
