How to Use
Rated 4.68 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.

I really wanted to like this, it's my first product from this brand and I've only heard good things. Unfortunately, it's super greasy, which by itself wouldn't be an issue because I have dry skin and prefer a dewy look, but it PILLS. And I mean like two hours after application, it's rolling off the corners of my face and getting into my hair. I didn't even put makeup over it. The only thing underneath is a hyaluronic acid serum. I've been trying to make it work for three days but it's just gross, I'm considering returning it. My face feels soft but the moisturizer just isn't absorbing during the day. Best this could be used for is a night cream maybe.

I have struggled with eczema periodically since I was an infant. Before amazing products like lipikar balm I would need to slather myself in thick raw shea butter, and if you know anything about Shea butter it is yellow and almost sticky on the skin. This product is the ultimate upgrade! It has Shea butter in the ingredients list with none of the drawbacks. After a week, my Sahara dry elbows which would catch on clothes are significantly smoother.

This stuff is amazing! I've been a long time Eucerin user and I find that this works so much better! Leaves my dry skin as smooth as buttah!! LoL I have very sensitive dry eczema prone skin and I've never had a bad reaction to this! Try it!!
SSU from Dallas, arc
Love Greg consistency and glow but not for rosacea prone skin- as this contains paraffin and mineral oil. Made my rosacea flare and got little small bumps, but def is hydrating. So would be better for body.
Toy from Washington, DC
For some reason this winter has made a mockery of any other lotion I've used. This is hands down the best I've ever used. I will never buy another!
Stephanie from Pennsylvania
I used this for the first time tonight. My face has been so dry from the winter and my Cera Ve face moisturizer wasn't cutting it. I bought this since I've had luck with other La Roche products and read how hydrating it is. It definitely feels smooth and hydrating rubbing it on, but wow is it oily. I'm really hoping it doesn't break me out, but even though it's so oily/greasy, I feel like it'll definitely help with hydration and plumpness! 🤞🏻no zits
M from Texas
From the first time I've tried this products, it's probably one of the most moisturizing cream I've had.
WAU 75 from Ohio
I was excited to try this product for my dry, sensitive skin and it comes recommended by dermatologist, but this stuff was terrible! It smelled like cooking oil (included rapeseed oil ie canola oil), its very greasy and not at all moisturizing and it caused my skin to turn bright red and burn. No thanks! Proceed with caution!
lizbur from Indiana
I have horribly dry skin and this stuff is amazing it has an amazing texture and it feels wonderful on the skin I highly recommend
NYCWarrior from Connecticut
Bought this for my husband and kid to use on their bodies and face. I started using it and now it's my favorite lotion! Focus on the results! My skin is hydrated, softer, and it's also great on my face. Love this paired with their cleanser! Love what it's done for my skin!
Court from Dallas, TX
This lotion/balm is the best! I am prone to extreme dryness, cracking, and irritation in the winter time, on top of my usual skin sensitivity, mild psoriasis flares, and crusty hands from excessive hand washing. I've never found a moisturizer that can tackle the dryness without further irritation until now. This moisturizer doesn't clog my pores, has no scent, and is soothing. It can feel a little greasy at first, but I just let it sit and soak into my skin for a while before applying makeup, and it's no issue. My skin is so soft, and I'm finally able to tolerate being outside in the cold for more than a couple of minutes. I love this stuff and will continue to buy it all year round.
Hydrating from USA
I have extremely dry skin no matter what I do. I'm a serious skin care person, and drink lots of water to try and keep my face feeling hydrated and not tight and dry. I have tried so many "extra hydrating moisturizers" and this by far has the best. Would for sure recommend if you are looking for a great hydration.
Cailey from Wisconsin
I have purchased this moisturizer several times. I have eczema and it does the trick all year. The ONLY downside is the bottle. You got through it fast and there is so much lotion left inside the bottle that you can't reach. Leaving it upside down doesn't do the trick and the neck is too narrow to scoop it out. As a result, I have looked at other brands. Hopefully La Roche-Posay will offer a tub or more user-friendly bottle in the future.
GAProductJunkie from Georgia
The best I've tried in a long time! Non Greasy, Light but substantial, no smell, and the moisture last for 3 days WITH regular showers/bathes. It truly provides the skin with a deep moisture content that is noticeable from the first application. Pricey but worth every dollar.
Skeptical Buyer from Virginia
I love this product especially in this weather. It keeps my skin hydrated and looking smooth. It is one of the best moisturizer I have ever used.
Gina from Maryville, Tn
I love this Moisturizer. I have tried many but none made my skin so soft.
Meg from St. Louis
Turned into an ultimate grease ball after this one. Had high hopes, but was horrible
abby from tampa fl
I loved 3 days and see the difference in your skin.
Paige from SC
The first time I tried this was a sample from my dermo to help with my dry patches and eczema. I was so excited when I saw I could get it from ulta! This product has been a game changer for my skin and it always feel super Hydrated. I can put it on and any time and not feel greasy after which is a huge plus. After a few uses my dry patches and bumps on arm have all disappeared (including ones medicine barely helped). My eczema has also been little to none since using this even tho I'm in a dry and cold location. Will definitely be buying more from this brand and continuing to buy all the time!
Bmore25 from Maryland
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.
