La Roche-Posay Redermic review on Mums 'n Chums


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!

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
