10 La Roche-Posay Products Dermatologists Love featured image

Let’s get straight to the point: La-Roche Posay is one of the most dermatologist-recommended skin-care brands in the world. That’s in no small part to the simple and effective ingredients that make up every formula; ingredients that are trusted and well-tolerated by all, especially sensitive skin types. Whether for a cult-favorite moisturizer or innovative new serum, the French pharmacy staple makes almost every “derm-approved” list.

If you have yet to try the skin-care brand named the top choice of 2023, a dozen top derms are here to give you a jump on where to start.

Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser ($23)

“This oil-absorbing cleanser removes excess sebum, debris and makeup in a gentle and efficient manner without damaging your skin’s barrier,” says Miami dermatologist Anna Chacon, MD. “It is made with zinc, which helps it absorb oil and kill acne-causing bacteria to speed up the healing of existing breakouts and stop the development of new ones.”

10% Pure Vitamin C Serum ($45)

While it’s a 10/10 for fading discoloration and brightening complexions, vitamin C has a reputation for causing irritation to sensitive skin types. La Roche-Posay’s 10% Pure Vitamin C serum is different, says Davie, FL dermatologist Marianna Blyumin-Karasik, MD. “One element that can reduce some irritation in problematic skin types is to offset vitamin C irritation by adding hydrating ingredients to product the formulation, such as humectants like glycerin and hyaluronic acid, which this serum contains. It is one of my favorites to recommend to patients.”

Fort Lauderdale, FL dermatologist Dr. Matthew Elias agrees. “La Roche-Posay includes multiple types of humectants like hyaluronic acid, which is hydrating to the skin and helps alleviate sensitivities.”

Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer ($23)

“As a dermatologist who also struggles with sensitive eczema skin, I’m constantly on the look out for moisturizers that provide good hydration and must be fragrance-free,” says Flushing, NY dermatologist Dr. Winifred Chu. “One of my favorites for the face is La Roche-Posay Double Repair. It contains ceramide-3, niacinamide and prebiotic thermal water, which has a unique prebiotic action on the skin microbiome, helping to replenish moisture up to 48 hours, as well as restoring skin’s natural barrier. It’s also oil-free and noncomedogenic, so it’s a great product for my acne-prone patients, as it doesn’t clog the pores and will not cause breakouts.”

Redermic R Retinol Cream ($55)

“This pure retinol, anti-aging cream has advanced smoothing benefits because of the addition of lipohydroxy acid—a derivative of salicylic acid—so skin texture is tackled, and it also contains additional softness and smoothing properties,” says Beverly Hills, CA dermatologist Ava Shamban, MD.

Great for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive skin.”
