Uriage skincare reviewed: Roséliane Dermo-Cleansing Fluid, CC Cream and Aquaprécis Moisturising Express Mask

Uriage is a brand that I have started to see more of in the media in Ireland recently but I have never tried anything from them so when I was contacted in the latter part of 2015 asking if I would like to try some products, I jumped at the chance. I described my skin type (dry, dehydrated and sensitive) & they sent me over three products to try based on what I had said about my skin's needs: Roséliane Dermo-Cleansing Fluid, Roséliane CC Cream and AquaPrécis Moisturising Express Mask.

Uriage products contain Uriage thermal waters combined with other components in all of their products and all are produced in collaboration with dermatologists and pharmacists. Uriage thermal water has moisturising, anti-inflammatory, healing, anti-radical, softening and isotonic properties making it more effective than the thermal waters used in other brands. The products are hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic and paraben free so they are suitable for even sensitive and reactive skin, like mine. Given all of this, I was very excited to try the products. I have given them a good road test for the last four weeks and I'm ready to share my thoughts with you today.

Roséliane Dermo-Cleansing Fluid: I normally use cleansing balms so was unsure how my skin would react to using a cleansing lotion, because I haven't used one in quite a few years (apart from a Roc one a few years ago when I forgot to being my cleansing balm on holiday and that was the only thing I could find in the small local pharmacy!). It is described as a make-up remover and cleanser, but I found that I had to use a lot of product to thoroughly remove my make-up so my preferred way to use it was as my morning cleanse and I have used it in this way for the past four weeks. The lotion is a creamy texture and has a lightly floral scent (it contains mallow, calendula, rose and apricot kernel oil as well as uriage thermal water) and it feels very refreshing on the skin. It cleanses without stripping the skin and didn't leave any residue. My skin felt soft to touch after using this and didn't react adversely at all over the four weeks. Overall, I like this product but I can't see it replacing my beloved cleansing balms. It is priced at €20.50 for 250ml, which would last a good few months as I have used less than 20% over the last four weeks.

Roséliane CC Cream: I have to start this by saying that I'm not the biggest CC/BB cream fan, in general. This claims to moisturise, protect and conceal and it contains SPF 30 and it only comes in one universal shade, which is unusual. This CC cream is definitely moisturising and doesn't cling to any dry patches or oxidise. It offers light coverage, is perfect for minimal make-up days and has a satin finish but doesn't look greasy. Without primer, it needs touching up after 4-5 hours so not the most long-lasting but because I don't normally use CC creams, I can't say if that is the norm. I personally don't wear make-up to the beach, but because it is so comfortable to wear and offers light coverage, it would perfect for anybody who does. It is priced at €20.50 for 40ml.

Aquaprécis Moisturising Express Mask: As a face mask junkie, this was the product I was most excited to try. It contains hyaluronic acid (known for its ability to retain water), which is an ingredient I like to see in all of my masks because my skin is so dry and dehydrated. When I first opened this mask, I was unsure if it would suit my skin because it has quite a strong (refreshing) scent but I didn't let that deter me and I applied a generous amount to my clean skin. It has a gel/cream texture and thankfully, my skin didn't react badly to it at all. After 10 minutes, it can be removed with either tissue or a flannel and warm water (my preference) and the result is skin that is very soft to touch, fresh-looking and very comfortable and happy.  I have used this twice weekly for the last four weeks and have really enjoyed using it (especially over the Christmas period) as a quick-fix to add moisture to my skin. I personally wouldn't use it overnight though as I do with some of my moisturising masks, but for a quick fix of hydration after a heavy night or if your make-up isn't sitting quite right, this is a great product. It is priced at €20.50 for 40ml.

Uriage products are available in pharmacies nationwide or can be ordered online here.

I think if you like Avene, Vichy or La Roche Posay products then you would love this Uriage range. Do these products sound like something you would use? Have you tried any other products from Uriage? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
