La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche Face Cream for Dry Skin Review!

La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche Face Cream is an excellent moisturiser for dry skin types.

La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche Face Cream* is a very moisturising face cream is targeted for very dry and sensitive skin. I take a little blob and massage gently on my skin. When used as a night time treatment before bed ensures I wake up with skin on my face as smooth and supple as a baby's bottom! 
La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche Face Cream* has a unique texture: in the pot its firm, but it easily melts on the skin. It is easy to spread and I found that it is quickly absorbed. Despite its very moisturising qualities, I have found this to be non comedogenic on my skin, that is, not causing acne breakouts - huge plus!

Straight from the pot, La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche Face Cream* has a moderate to strong floral and wooded scent with hints of orange blossom, but once you spread it on your skin it is barely noticeable.

For those who are particular, La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche Face Cream* is Paraben-free.

The only con I can think of with this product is the packaging.

While a majority of La Roche Posay products come in squeezy tubes, this product comes in a jar, perhaps because the balm is thick and you would tire so much to squeeze the product out! I am not a big fan of products in jars or pots, where you may have to 'double dip'. I find this very unhygienic as dust can accumulate inside the pot with repeated applications.
However, La Roche-Posay claims that they engineered this product to be more resistant to bacterial contamination by reducing the number of free water molecules (sensitive to bacterial contamination) and added the active ingredients in their lipidic phase of formula (more protective against contamination than the aqueous phase). How effective that is - honestly I would not be able to tell.
Overall, I think this is an excellent winter moisturiser, definitely a winter wonder!
Available at £16 per 50ml jar.
