La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Cream vs Toleriane Ultra Fluid

Hello beauties,

I started using the Toleriane range last year and after making some mistakes, I thought this would be the perfect post to you if you are looking for a cream of this range. So today’s post is all about two creams – the Toleriane Ultra cream and the Toleriane Ultra fluid.

Like I said, I started using the Toleriane Ultra Cream last year, and I found the perfect cream to the cold weather. It hydrated my skin in a way that I never saw and while I was passing to a stage of breakouts, this cream along with the Effaclair, were my best friends. If you are also through a stage of breakouts, I advice you to check my routine and how much these products helped me, here.

What I love about the Toleriane Ultra Cream is the fact that it doesn’t have any scent, zero. It come in an hermetic package and the ingredients provided me enough moisture , even though my skin is oily. I also love the fact that I can use this cream around the eyes, which is very practical and in the morning save me a lot of time.

The tightness and redness that I was feeling disappear or at least got better 90% and it never got worse my breakouts, on the contrary. I think a big factor that contributes for some of my casual breakouts are some frangaces that creams contains. And because these range has zero fragrance, it helped me.

And I use it so much that I ended my Ultra Cream bottle a month before summer. Because the weather was warmer, I decided to buy the Ultra Fluid, thinking that it would be a little less intense, more like a actual gel and not a cream. How wrong I was!

Don’t get me wrong, the Ultra Fluid is not bad. But it’s not the same as the Ultra Cream. Last week I used the last drop of the Ultra Cream and I immediately noticed how much my skin loves that cream. First, the scent – although the Ultra Fluid doesn’t have any frangance in composition, every time I open the bottle, I think it has a faint alcohol scent. Strange because they don’t have alcohol in the list of ingredients…it’s probably from my head.

Then there’s the fact that I don’t feel it moisturizes my skin enough. And although it didn’t make my acne worse, I do see a little pimple or two that I didn’t had while using the Ultra cream.

I still intended to end the Ultra Fluid Bottle, but if you asked me which one is my favorite, it would have to be 100% the Ultra Cream. It’s the perfect cream to use in the morning or night. I found it perfect to use after a cream that you use for a treatment, for example, a serum with vitamin C, a cream with Salicylic Acid or Retinols.

Do you want more reasons to try the Tolerian Ultra Cream? I read somewhere that it is the only cream that Sarah Jessica Parker uses.
