    Default Anyone know of this?

    Hi Group,
    I received a sample of Rosaliac from La Roche-Posay which is a green tinted moisturizer that is supposed to be the "rage" of Europe. It primarily, or so they advertise, is an anti-reddening cream. I tried it a couple of times now and although the moisturizing effect is OK, I don't see any less reddening. Know anything?

    I have it too...same results as you. The only reason they say anti reddening is because it's green. For a long time, makeup artists use certain colors to cancel out others. Blue to correct ashyness, green to correct red, etc.

    Isononyl Isononanoate: emollient ester
    Glycerin: humectant
    Cyclohexasiloxane: volatile silicone oil
    Alcohol Denat: solvent
    Niacinamide: b3 derivative

    (The emollient ester is not particulaly great for moisturizing. )
    very little % from here down:
    Cetyl Alcohol: fatty alcohol
    Butyrospermum parkii Shea Butter: emollient
    Peg-100 Stearate Glyceryl Stearate: emulsifiers
    Ascorbyl Glucoside: c-based nonionic surfactant
    Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid: saturated fatty acids
    Caffeine: antioxidants
    Sodium Citrate: thickener
    Carbomer: gelling agent
    Acrylates Copolymer: film former
    Xanthan Gum: thickener
    Tocopherol Acetate: synthetic E
    Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid: adjusts pH
    Isobutane: propellant, not sure what it's doing here.
    Myristic Acid: saturated fatty acid
    ci19140, blue 1: colors
    Phenoxyethanol, Propylparaben, Methylparaben : preservatives

    There is niacinamide which is great, but seems to be the only redeeming ingredient. Not worth the money.

    Default not the cream but the cleanser

    I have used the cream but was scared off by the alcohol but I just bought the Rosaliac cleanser and so far, I like it. I use it with the LRP light facial fluid.

    I received a tiny sample of Rosaliac, also. I was afraid to use it in case they had snuck in cortizone. I remember when Clinique came out with a "skin-soothing creme" and it turned out cortizone was an ingredient. They'd given me a couple of sample packets of it. (They had cortizone listed as an ingredient, fortunately.)

    So, what's' the last word on Rosaliac: good, bad or indifferent?

    Thanks!
