NEW! Toleriane Teint Compact-Creme from La Roche-Posay, for dry and sensitive skin

Some of my friends have very sensitive skin and find foundations particularly tricky. So I was interested to hear about the latest product from La Roche-Posay, launched just this month. This French brand – named after a village in the Vienne region famed for its thermal waters – has more than 30 years’ research experience into products especially formulated for sensitive skin. Their new Toleriane Teint Compact-Creme seeks to provide the high coverage of a complexion corrector and the soothing properties of a skincare in one innovative ‘double comfort’ texture. Sounds interesting, right?
Here’s what they say: Dry and sensitive skins find compact foundations thick, heavy and can cling to dry or blemished areas like a mask.  Toleriane Teint Compact-Creme offers truly natural looking results, concealing imperfections with complete comfort and SPF 35 protection.
The texture sounds especially intriguing, described as ‘ultra melting’, and composed of waxes, emollient oils and a texturising agent to melt onto the skin, leaving a fine film of natural looking coverage.
The product contains Neurosensine, a dermatological active ingredient used for sensitivity regulation, which is intended to soothe and reduce the reaction risk of dry and sensitive skin. It comes with a specially designed latex-free, anti-friction sponge for application.
Costing €20, Toleriane Teint Compact-Creme is available from pharmacies nationwide in four shades: ivory, light beige, sand beige and golden.  See http://www.laroche-posay.ie/ to find a stockist near you.

I've tried the powder compact before and wasn't a huge fan of it but the fact that this is a creme is making me want to try it.
