Review - La Roche Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

La Roche Posay Toleriane

I am not a fan of no-rinse cleansers! There I've said it! 
I know all about the benefits, not to mention the huge convenience factor of course but I just can't seem to get used to the residue "feel" and I always end up wondering just how "clean" I really am. While balm cleansers have weaned me off the "foaming bubble" spell I was under, water and rinsing is an addiction I can't seem to shake. Micellar cleansing waters are as far as I go!

The La Roche Posay Toleriene Dermo-Cleanser had that kind of attitude to contend with so right off, we were at a bad start. It really wasn't its fault though - it was my chronic inability to fully read directions and descriptions that brought it to my bathroom in the first place. 
Despite the many reservations I decided to try it anyways - purely for research purposes? 
The La Roche Posay Toleriene is a gentle, wipe-off cleanser meant for normal to dry but also intolerant skin. It is to be used as a regular cleanser and/or a makeup remover. 
Their website indicates that those with sensitive skin and irritating skin conditions like rosacea & eczema would benefit from this line and are their primary targets. 
As usual La Roche Posay products are fragrance-free, preservative-free, surfactant-free and non-comedogenic. Definitively good indicators that members of the Sensitive Skin Club would feel comfortable using it. Even better, La Roche Posay claims that using this line regularly will tone down and treat acquired sensitivity.
Pretty lofty claims for such a simple cleanser. Then again sometimes simple is sometimes better!

Since I always do a double cleanse (I take clean seriously!) I used the Toleriene as my first step to emulsify the surface dirt and little makeup I had on and then followed it with my Clarisonic + Omorovicza Cleansing Foam to finish the routine. 
To my surprise I wasn't completely put-off the no-rinse solution! I expected to feel the usual greasy residue but there was none and my face did feel somewhat clean. The texture of the La Roche Posay Toleriene is light, milky and silky so it feels very gentle on the skin so I can definitively see the appeal for sensitive skin types. It feels soothing and since abrasion is minimal even mild redness is eliminated. The sceptic in me was hopeful to say the least! 

After several uses, the skincare geniius in my head solved the "not clean enough" feeling by removing the Toleriene with warm, wet cotton pads so I can be 100% sure no residue is left behind. Little modifications like that can give me a lot of peace of mind!

Today The La Roche Posay Toleriene is an ideal morning cleanser for me and I am so happy I finally gave the "no-rinse" products a try. 
My sensitive skin is happier when I use this! I definitively recommend at least sampling this - La Roche Posay has trial kits that are not just affordable but also very travel friendly :-)

La Roche Posay's products can be found atShoppers Drug Mart in Canada but selection of products varies from store to store.
