How to Use
Rated 4.69 out of 5 stars
I originally was going to test out LRP Lipikar Daily Moisturizer formula for 7 days, but after applying at night for the first 3 nights I realized maybe I should test it out a little longer...
First, I love how clean the packaging looks, I just wish there was a better description of the product on the front.
The formula it's self is nice and thick, but maybe just a little to thick to apply to the face if eczema is not present.
After applying at night, in the morning the product would still be on top of my skin, never really fully absorbed.
Not wanting to give up on this product I rethought it and started applying to my elbows and knees for another 7 days, where my eczema is visible. After those 7 days my elbows and knees are in way better shape. Smoother, less itchy from dryness and any discoloration has gone down. I would definitely consider this product in the future for my self & clients. I even gave out some samples to the people I felt would find this product beneficial and they to love it!

I have extremely dry skin that was made worse after moving to Arizona. We also have hard water. I usually itch after a shower. I had hoped this lotion would take care of this problem, and as far as the itch goes, it does soothe it for a few minutes after application, but it just didn't help my dry skin at all.
The consistency is too thick. It is very hard to rub in all the way. It still has a slightly greasy feeling for about 10-15 minutes after application, and once it is completely soaked in, my skin just feels taught and dry like before I applied the lotion. I have been using this daily on my body and face, applying directly after a shower while my pores are still open, and I have not experienced any of the benefits promised. My skin is also still visibly dry after using this product. Unfortunately, it's just not for me.
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review from In flu enster and La Roche-Posay.

My daughter got the chicken skin behind her arms and this lotion completely removed that texture in a month. It's also great for razor bumps.
Ultamastodon from Washington DC
High quality face cream with great ingredients like niacinamide. It's an amazing value for money. Nothing fixed my skin barrier like this heavy duty cream. I find it too heavy for daytime so I only wear it at night. Did NOT break me out. Love love love!!!!
Madi from Michigan
This stuff is a life saver!! It helps a lot with my redness and especially since it's winter with my dry skin! 10/10 recommend.
Jo from NY
Love the moisturizing effect this has but my face got small bumps all over and a few whiteheads after using! The smell is not great either. Giving 2 stars because it does moisturizer and absorb on the body well. Not sure if I will return it but definitely will not purchase again.
Ana from El Paso rx
My dermatologist recommended it. When I turned 42 I felt my skin got really dry all of a sudden. It also got very itchy. When that happend to me I was desperate for anything nothing worked. Then I went to the dermatologist and she told me about it and it saved me. Wish it wasn't so expensive for a body moisturizer. Haven't tried in the face will do that next and I'll update if it's as amazing. The cream wash is also very good.
Dry Girl from Southern California
I'm not sure what was in here that did it, but this made my eczema flare up like crazy. :( It also made me itch and gave me rashes. I thought it was just the weather (it was fall in So Cal), but when I stopped using it, the itching and rashes went away the next day. I thought I could maybe use it on my body (I was using it for my face), but it still gave me itchiness and made my face rash up. I washed it off and the itching and rashing faded. I've never had such an intense reaction to a product before.
Cindy from Shelby Twp Mi
I was purchasing one brand and asked the cashier if she ever used it. She said no so I asked what she used. By far the best lotion I have ever used.
Christine from Cincinnati, OH
The scent doesn't bother me, smells like your average cream with no fragrance. It has helped my skin so much with only a few uses, I love it! My skin is on the drier side through winter and summer, so I will continue to purchase this. Haven't tried it on my face as yet.
Mandao from Minneapolis, Mn
First of all this is a great deal considering most facial moisturizers are at least $20 for only 1.7 ounces of product! This is amazing for anyone living in a dry/ cold climate with dry skin. This has carried me through winter without a breakout!
Ashlee from California
I have dry skin and usually if I put moisturizer on at night I wake up the next morning not feeling moisturize anymore but with this IT LASTS ME ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT ! A little goes a long away ! This leave my skin feeling so smooth and hydrated . DON'T HESITATE, BUY THIS !
40ish Mama from Midwest
The Lipikar balm is very hydrating. The consistency is thick and creamy and absorbs into my skin quickly. I use the product at night since it can leave my skin a bit shiny.
lovingLRP from CA
For so long I have used a plethora of different moisturizing creams/lotions to keep my quite dry, very red and sensitive skin fortified and soothed. Nothing has come close to this one in terms of delivering on everything I wanted from a moisturizer: (1) it so truly softens and moisturizes my skin. It absorbs, but neither too soon (meaning it is weak on overall effect) nor too much time after applying it. I can still feel my facial skin is soft and not dry or tight the morning after applying it at night. (2) It feels so gentle and soothing, and it makes the irritation from a particularly abrasive facial shave go right away. I love that it has niacinamide. (3) It has the most manageable and rich texture. Some might not like how thick it feels but to me it strikes the perfect balance between a thick balm and fluid lotion in texture.
This is the first review I have ever left on ULTA, and may be the only one. That is how good this stuff is for dry, sensitive skin.
V Miller from Orange County, CA
I was worried this moisturizer might be too heavy but it is perfect for my drier areas. I use it around my eyes, mouth, cheeks as a last step in my skin routine to keep everything sealed in. Once again La Roche Posay does not disappoint.
Miwilson from Washington, DC
I used the face wash and the lotion balm and I'm in love with how soft and supple my skin looks. I have very dry facial skin in the winter and this has really worked for me.
foxgirlmoto from michigan
I just used this for the first time this morning. my skin feels smooth, BUT what is with the smell?!?!? Even after washing my hands they still stink, and I put some on my face and it's all I can smell in my face mask. PLEASE CHANGE THE SCENT OF THIS!!
A from USA
My skin usually freaks out when the seasons change, but last winter was the worst I've had yet. I was working in a factory and I started getting irritation on my face that I've never seen before. This saved my skin and only took a few days to relieve the dryness, redness, and itchiness. It's such a good value and you can use it all over your body. I've had nothing but excellent products from this brand.
Kmf from Tennessee
My skin has been so dry with all the hand washing plus cold weather and this moisturizer has saved my skin. Love love love this!
Ellalakatrina from Riverside
My baby girl had baby acne and her cheeks were red the first day I apply this cream I notice the big difference on her, I also notice the difference on my skin when I applied this cream no more dry skin love this cream 10/10
faith from dallas
this lotion is amazing. it's the first OTC lotion that helps with my eczema. I don't always want to use steroids and this a great product to use on a daily basis. it's oily, thick and hydrating and feels soooo good on my dry hands from washing my hands all day. btw this lotion isn't supposed to smell good… fragrance free is best for moisture/sensitive skin. overall, 10/10
Pat J from Madison, MS
This product line was recommended by my dermatologist while I was suffering from the initial stages of eczema. Over the years my skin has become dry and sensitive. I tried many lotions/creams/washes and I prefer this brand by far. My skin is now healthy and soft.
Cold weather gal from Alaska
sticky texture, but very moisturizing and nice for sensitive skin. Large bottle. Will I buy again? Probably not.
Amazing Product from Sarasota Florida
I have extremely sensitive dry skin and this has quickly become my holy grail. I have seen such an amazing difference over the last month in the overall appearance of my skin. I only gave it 4 instead of 5 because the smell is just not very good. While it is "unscented", it definitely has an odor. I curtail it with a body spray or perfume, but it is something to know before you purchase it. That being said, I would buy it in a vat if I could. It is THAT GOOD!!
Aiden from Orange County, CA
I have eczema breakouts on my face, and when I applied this on broken patches, I immediately got redness, stinging, and rashes. :( I'm really sad because otherwise, it's great! It keeps moisture in after I shower and it's thick enough to protect my skin when it's not already breaking out.
DON'T put this over your eyelids, especially if you're getting ezcema breakouts. My eyelids are swollen now after a night of stinging. Not exactly designed for facial use.
SpookyScary from Maryland
I bought this because my face is always SO dry no matter what product I use! I used this once and my skin felt the best it's ever have right after one use!!

I had high hopes for this, but unfortunately it felt sooo heavy, the smell was horrendous and stuck around forever
