    Does this moisturizer exfoliate at all? I’m trying to find an everyday moisturizer that doesn’t exfoliate. When I called the LRP customer service, it said the Niancinamide was for soothing. But when I see that ingredient in other skincare products (from all different brands), it ranges. One skincare product said the niancinimde exfoliated. Another skincare product said their niancinimide soothes. So does it work in differently in different percentages? Thank you!!

    • Jenny says:

      This does not exfoliate, and nor does niacinamide. The exfoliating product you saw contains other ingredients that exfoliates, eg. glycolic acid or lactic acid. It has nothing to do with the % of niacinamide in the product.

    Hello!!! I really like your blog! My skin is sensitive and dry and it has been dificult to me to find the right moisturizer that does not cause me any irritation.. I am allergic to fragrance.. can you recommend me some moisturizers please?? Thanks a lot!!!

    • Jenny says:

      Thanks so much Andrea, so glad to hear that! I actually really like the LRP Cicaplast Baume B5 which is fragrance-free and gray for soothing sensitive skin. Klairs also makes a nice moisturizer that’s fragrance-free that I really enjoyed using. Hope this helps!

  4. Hm, sounds not that exciting. At first I mentally put it on my to-try list, niacin amide is among my favorite ingredients as well, but now… But to be fair, moisturizers rarely excite me.

      It really is about as basic as moisturizers can get, which isn’t a bad thing, but it’s not as gentle as I’d like it to be either. Perhaps if they included a higher % of niacinamide I think I’d like it more.

    I haven’t heard too much about this product although the Toleriane range seems to be quite popular! At that price, I’d rather go to some niche skincare brands on some of the lower price point products in the range! It’s too bad that they’ve included those questionable ingredients – would have loved if they had two options (i.e. one for sensitive skin!)

    • Jenny says:

      I think this is a relatively new product in the range, and I’m wondering if it’s a US-only release. I agree with you as well, it really doesn’t excel in any one area to justify the price. I believe the rest of the Toleriane range is pretty safe for sensitive skin though!

  6. Shame that this didn’t quite live up to your expectation. :-( and you just reminded me that I need to buy a new sunscreen, I am torn between getting LRP Anthelios XL or Naruko Peptide spf50. Maybe I should get both, eh? :-P

    • Jenny says:

      It’s one of those moisturizers that’s good, but not really great at anything, so it’s hard to really fall in love with it :/ I actually have both of the SPF and I use the LRP for when I’ll be outdoors and the Naruko for indoor days. The Naruko one dries down to a pretty matte finish which is great for my combo skin!
