A few weeks ago, I posted a picture of the gift bags I received when I attended the skin of color seminar series in New York. Immediately following the post, I was inundated with so many questions about this moisturizing balm. I was excited to test it out so I got to it and the verdict is in.
LA ROCHE-POSAY LIPIKAR BALM AP +. INTENSE REPAIR MOISTURIZING CREAM(CLAIM)
Formulated with high concentration of La Roche -Posay prebiotic thermal and Aqua Posae Filiformis, an exclusive patent ingredient developed in the La Roche Posay prebiotic thermal water. Lipikar Balm AP+ helps rebalance the skin microbiome and provides long lasting hydration to relieve extra dry skin.

SHEA BUTTER: Also called karite butter, protects the skin from dehydration and external aggressions due to harsh climate and is attributed with anti inflammatory activity. It restores skin suppleness, increases moisturization, and can improve the appearance of irritated dry skin.

SELENIUM: has been shown to have other protective effects such as DNA, reducing the DNA binding of carcinogens and suppressing gene mutations.
LIPIKAR BALM AP +: Re-establish the and stabilize the microbiome's balance. Restore and preserve the skin barrier.

HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
May 11th to May 30th 2018
WHAT DOES IT SMELL LIKE?
Rich, creamy texture
Extremely dry skin or impaired skin barrier.
Acneic skin, oily skin and on all faces.
Please read the ingredient list above for possible allergen/fragrance that may not be appropriate for your skin type.
Very Satisfied = 5, Satisfied = 4, Neutral =3, Dissatisfied = 2, Very Dissatisfied = 1, N/A = Void Response
I used it AM &PM for some weeks and it left my skin moisturized all day. When I applied it in the AM, by 7pm, my skin felt moisturized and supple.
Surprisingly not greasy.
My skin felt soft all-day long.
On the package, it suggests using the moisturizer on dry skin both body and face. Personally, I would never put this near my face or recommend to anyone with oily skin, dehydrated skin or dry skin.
I had to stop using it during the summer because it is really thick and, in my opinion, better suited for the winter.
In conclusion, it’s probably the best La Roche-Posay product I have tested. In the past, it's been hit and miss but I like its moisturizing qualities which I may repurchase in the winter for extra moisture.
