La Roche-Posay had a virtual press event last week where influencers like yours truly enjoyed learning more about this famous French skincare company’s two newest products—Lipikar AP+ Wash and Cicaplast Hands. As an added bonus, we got to virtually mix ‘n mingle with Dr. Angela Lamb (director of the Mount Sinai Dermatology Department at their main location uptown)!
Above you can see my screen shot of Dr. Lamb talking about LaRoche-Posay’s 10 years of research on skin microbiome. Dr. Lamb actually spoke about all sorts of skin topics from how La Roche-Posay’s new products can help persistent skin issues from eczema to constant everyday flaking of skin in cold weather to how the right products can actually help improve the sleep quality in atopic dermatitis patients. The friendly Dr. Lamb also fielded questions from journalists that ranged from the best hand washing practices in the age of COVID-19 to what over the counter products actually work on everyday skin issues like acne, wrinkles and skin elasticity. Dr. Lamb had a lot of praise for La Roche-Posay products and like a lot of other dermatologists, uses them as a first line of defense before handing out prescriptions (which could possibly have side effects).
So in case I’ve peaked your curiosity, here are the official descriptions of La Roche-Posay’s two new “much buzzed about” products including price and where to buy:
La Roche-Posay Lipikar AP+ Wash ($14.99 on www.laroche-posay.us, Amazon, Target, CVS and Walgreens)—this is a moisturizing body wash and face wash for extra dry, sensitive skin provides 24-hour hydration starting in the shower. This comforting foaming wash helps protect skin from the drying effects of water and leaves the skin clean, soft, and instantly soothed. Suitable for babies as young as two weeks, children & adults.￼
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Hands ($9.99 on www.laroche-posay.us, Amazon, Dermstore and select retailers)—La Roche-Posay’s best hand cream for dry to very dry hands leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated. This shea butter hand cream immediately soothes hands and is resistant to hand washing. It provides up to 48 hour hydration for dry hands damaged by aggressions at home and work such as cold weather and frequent hand-washing.
La Roche-Posay has been producing products loved by dermatologists and consumers alike since 1975 and just so you know, they have an award winning hand pump style sanitizer called Purifying Hand Sanitizer Gel to accompany Cicaplast Hands. Purifying Hand Sanitizer Gel is much less drying than other hand sanitizers which is important to know for the cold weather coming up very soon in NYC. It is only $8.99 and can be found at all the aforementioned mass merchandisers and of course the official La Roche-Posay site.
I plan on starting to use both Cicaplast Hands and Lipikar AP+ Wash next week. The local temperatures are starting to hit the 40s now and I can feel the dry skin coming on. It feels great to know that there are doctor recommended products out there that are so reasonably priced and easy to find on local drugstore shelves!
