La Roche-Posay , the Dermatologist’s brand of choice, offers anti-aging and corrective solutions to women of all ages. So, when we had a chance to test out their Redermic [+] face cream, we knew you’d want to know about it.
About La Roche-Posay Redermic [+]
Redermic [+] is a paraben-free face cream developed by La Roche-Posay to reinforce skin with vitamin C for wrinkle filling care to reverse the signs of aging. Its’ high tech formulation includes 5% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), known for its’ antioxidant and anti-free-radical properties and for neutralizing free radicals in synergy with vitamin E, which it regenerates. Since our body is unable to synthesize and to stock vitamin C we need to supplement our diets with a daily intake of this vitamin. As we age, the skin’s concentration of ascorbic acid decreases. It drops by 35% between the ages of 20 and 50*. Support fibers in skin deteriorate, break or get disorganized. Vitamin C intensifies fiber synthesis to strengthen the skin’s structure. Redermic [+] is valued at $53.95 and can be found at Canadian pharmacies and select online retailers.

Redermic [+] : My Experience
Product review by Sara Hodge
If you are concerned about using products that contain parabens, this might be for you. It is paraben free, and comes from a brand millions of women trust (I have been a faithful user of Lipikar, another of La Roche-Posay’s fabulous skin products, for years) and most importantly to me- it works well. I have been using Redermic [+] for 3 weeks now, setting aside my usual favourite in order to experiment with it. My skin looks and feels incredibly smooth and I have definitely seen a gradual reduction in some of the fine lines that have been forming on my face– especially smile lines. I also love the light floral scent the cream has, the fact that it absorbs quickly and how it also makes a fantastic base for makeup.
We’d love for you to try it too, so thanks to the generous people at La Roche-Posay,
we’ve set up this giveaway to give you a chance to win your own tube of Redermic [+], valued at $53.95 CDN! Our contest is now closed! Thanks to all who entered!
