La Roche Posay – Rosaliac CC Cream (Daily Unifying Complete Correction Cream)

By Get Lippie

So, after saying the BB Cream craze has largely passed me by recently, I now find myself reviewing a CC cream, finally.  And, I have to say, that I almost unqualifiedly love this one.

La Roche Posay has become something of a cult skincare brand in the UK. Almost ubiquitous in France, it’s fairly difficult to come by in the UK, but it’s well worth seeking out (even if they don’t import my favourite product in the range: Serozinc to the UK at all), as there are very few skin conditions they don’t treat, and La Roche Posay is a godsend for sensitive skin.

Redness is my major concern, and Rosaliac CC Cream is designed for redness prone sensitive skin, like what I have got.  It’s a fairly thick texture:

But it spreads very easily, and gives good coverage:

On skin it blends easily, melding nicely with the texture of your skin:

And, it is virtually undetectable once blending is finished:

This gives a fairly light coverage, but it does cover redness well, and gives a lovely, glowing satin finish.  It reminds me a great deal of my beloved Chantecaille Just Skin, which is about the highest praise I can give it, to be honest.  There are a couple of caveats to that, which, as Rosaliac CC cream is only a third of the price, are only to be expected.  Wear time could be a bit longer, I do find I have to powder down in the mid-afternoons, but, for the price, this is very good indeed. Oh, and it only comes in one shade, which is frustrating if you’re either very dark or very fair.  I’m fairly pale, and this is good for giving me a glow, but if I were any paler, I’d struggle with it, I must admit.

It comes with an SPF of 30, so if you apply enough you won’t have to use a separate sunscreen, but as I always use a separate sunscreen regardless, I’d ignore this, tbh.  It’s got a great texture, a lovely finish (provided you use powder), covers redness, feels soothing on inflamed skin, and best of all, it’s currently on offer for £16.55 on Escentual.com I can’t really recommend a tinted moisturiser more highly than this one, without you paying almost £60 for it, to be honest …

    This CC cream didn't work for me at all. I have oily skin and this CC cream simply refused to absorb and set. Migrated all over the face, transferred onto my phone etc, but I guess it could be a blessing for dry skin.

      Oh, that is a shame – I do genuinely love this! I have combination (oily/dehydrated) skin, and haven't really had any problems with it not setting, but I do routinely powder down (with Hourglass Ambient Light in diffused) no matter what I am wearing, maybe that is the difference? I think you're right that it would be good for dry skin though. I'm really sorry you didn't get on with it.
