The dermatologist-approved serum for reducing redness

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense Reviews

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this soothing formula

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / April 08 2019

If you’ve got sensitive skin that’s prone redness and irritation, we’re sure you’ll agree it can be a total nightmare to manage.

Not only do you need to steer clear of ingredients that can irritate your sensitive skin, you also need to ensure you’re hydrating your skin properly with ultra-nourishing formulas as redness and dryness commonly go hand-in-hand. Yep, #blessed (not).

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense has been specifically formulated with couperose-prone, sensitive and fragile skin types in mind. It’s free from common skin irritants like preservatives, parabens, fragrance, alcohol and colourants, plus it has been recommended by over 25,000 dermatologists worldwide.

For a calmer, happier complexion (and to help prevent inflammation from recurring), this anti-redness intensive daily serum contains three key active (but non-irritating) ingredients: Ambophenol, which is a powerful vegetal extract, works to reduce the size of blood vessels and strengthen their walls; Neurosensine™ reduces redness; and soothing thermal spring water calms and decongests reactive skin.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense, as well as La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser, to a panel of women aged between 25 and 44 with sensitive, fragile and redness-prone skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense.

How soothing the treatment was: Reviewers were pleased to report that they noticed their redness and irritation dramatically reduced over the four-week trial period.

How hydrating the serum was: The panel loved how well-hydrated, smooth and plump their skin felt after using the serum.

The easy-to-use packaging: Members loved the convenience of the pump packaging and found that the applicator kept the product hygienically contained and protected from contamination from the outside world – a very important consideration for sensitive skin.

The verdict

“This stuff is actually amazing! I’ve got very fair skin and am prone to redness in my cheeks and across my nose. The serum seemed to reduce the redness drastically which is amazing especially considering how hot it is currently! The serum has an amazing texture and left my skin feeling smooth and plump.”

“I suffer from redness on my nose and no matter how much I try to hide it with concealer and foundation the product slides during the day to reveal the redness. I applied the product 30 mins before applying my makeup and I noticed a visible difference. After a few days the redness was non-existent. I was so happy!”

“I really liked this product! I suffer with redness, dryness and irritated skin and after using this product along with the cleanser I’ve seen some amazing progress and results. My skin is a lot more hydrated and plump, my redness has gone down and I find that my skin isn’t as irritated.”
