La Roche posay has recently introduced two new items to their Pigmentclar collection – Brightening foaming cream cleanser and Dark spot correcting moisturizer spf to follow very popular Pigmentclar serum and Pigmentclar eyes. I was excited to try these two new additions along with the serum and wanted to share my thoughts with you.
Pigmentclar Brightening foaming cream cleanser is my favorite of the three. This product truly blew me away. Tiny bit of product (you do not need more than pea size) foams up so nicely, creating rich leather and removes makeup and impurities while leaving skin feeling refreshed, clean but not stripped at the same time. Also it feels smoother and softer to touch and visibly brighter. Non-particle, non-bead Lipo-Hydroxy Acid [LHA] helps shed dark cells from skins surface, clearing away dullness. I love pairing it with Clarisonic (and radiance brush) for the best effect. Pigmentclar cleanser can work for any skin type since it’s so efficient yet gentle at the same time. It has 4.2 oz /125ml and retails for 24.99$
Pigmentclar serum is the most powerful product from the line that promises visible spot reduction. It has lightweight gel texture that melts into the skin and absorbs instantly. It can be used nightly and in the morning but followed with SPF (which should be used anyway especially if you have skin prone to dark spots/sun spots). Pigmentclar Serum is designed and formulated to address visible dark spots and age spots and uneven skin tone . Phe-Resorcinol, and ferulic acid help visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots . LHA provides micro-exfoliation to visibly smooth skin’s surface and brighten complexion. I actually tested this one on my husband since I do not have visible dark posts. He plays sports outdoors from May to November which resulted in large sun spot on his cheek which we treated daily with Pigmentclar serum the past three weeks. Spot became lighter noticeably but also his skin overall looks smoother and more even toned. I think with these kind of products you really need to be persistent and to wait at least couple of weeks to see results. Also follow with proper regiment like cleansing, toning, moisturizing and protecting from sun. Pigmentclar serum comes in the matte bottle with the pump -protected from light and air and much more hygienic. It is priced at 52.99$ for 1 oz/ /30ml which is significantly less then most of the brightening serums on the market.
Pigmentclar Moisturizer spf 30 is designed and formulated to address visible dark spots and uneven skin tone. Phe-Resorcinol and ferulic acid help visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots . LHA provides micro-exfoliation to visibly smooth skin’s surface and brighten complexion. It has thicker and more creamier texture than the serum. It can be used overall daily after Pigmentclar serum for the maximum results. I loved that it was moisturizing enough and absorbed fairly quickly and at the same time providing enough coverage with SPF 30. I used this one combined with the Pigmentclar cleanser and I can say overall my skin looked brighter and more even toned meaning that my red spots from acne scarring appear lighter and less noticeable while skin texture feels smoother which was especially noticed when I applied my foundation – it blended nicer, didn’t settle as much into my pores and I definitely needed lesser of it. It comes in squeeze tube packaging with pointed tip so you won’t waste the product and you really need a tiny bit even for the whole face. It has 1 oz / 30ml and retails for 51.99$
