This review is on my mother’s behalf. Major part was written by her. I have only edited the same. For I have not ventured into anti-wrinkle creams as yet. So I don’t think it’s justified for me to write it down. Though I want to give the sachets a try which we got as freebies (I love free stuff, I am cheap: p) because it has active vitamin C.

My experience with La Roche-Posay Active C moisturiser:
I have tried a lot of anti-aging creams but was never completely satisfied with any in particular and my hunt continued. I have used this moisturiser for more than 7 months now both am and pm. This is my second tube (recently purchased) and I have a normal skin. It’s an extremely light cream with a matte finish which comes in a sealed aluminium tube to preserve the Vitamin C, from air and light. The packaging is fragile but perfect as only the required amount comes out which is a peanut size. I never had any breakouts or skin problems ever.
This product is wonderful. Its non-greasy, easily blend-able. Pores look much smaller. Leaves skin supple and moist. I am 56 years of age and I can see quite a difference in wrinkles/lines and the overall condition of my skin. The finelines on my forehead, around the lips and smile creases are a bit faint. I have used it under my eyes along with another eye cream (but be very very careful as Vitamin C might sting and water the eyes) and it looks much fainter. The fragrance is very pleasant to me and fades away as soon as applied.
