La Roche-Posay 'HYDRAPHASE INTENSE MASK'.


This was released in June of this year so I've been using it for a couple of months now and I love it!
 It's one of the 'lucky' products that made the cut to accompany me on holiday and I have been using it a couple of nights a week (as an alternative to my ROC Retinol night cream) as an intense moisturiser/mask.
It is meant as an intensely hydrating facial mask that you slather on, generously coating your face, leave for 10 or so minutes while you relax and allow the cream to boost your moisture levels before gently wiping off  any remaining residue.
Well, that's how you are meant to use it per the box instructions. I've been applying it generously as suggested BUT after my 10 or so minutes are up, I just rub-in whatever excess is still sitting on top of my skin and allow it to act as a moisturiser. My skin feels and looks lovely the next morning when I wake up and, for me at least, it's not too rich to use as an all-night moisturiser. 
It contains super moisture-boosting Hyaluronic Acid fragments and of course the softening/soothing Thermal Spring Water (a natural anti-oxidant) that the brand is known for.
It has a gel-cream texture with a slight blue tint (see picture above) that disappears once applied to the skin and what's cool is that its melting point is the same as the skin's temperature meaning that as soon as it warms up on the skin, it melts in allowing it to do it's job better!
It's perfect for all skin types, including sensitive & oily, and successfully treats dehydrated or tired skins.

The ingredients list.
Apply it a couple of times a week as needed. The more dehydrated your skin, the more frequently you can use it. It will absorb quicker into drier/more parched areas of the face.
And it works great as a hand cream too... I just use it where needed.

It's available for €16.50 (50ml) in all usual Irish La Roche-Posay stockists.

Definitely one I give both thumbs up to!
Let me know if any of you guys have used it or what are your favourite similar products?

Available online here.....
