La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque - Reviewed!

Over the past few months the cold weather and being ill has played havoc on my skin, i've also had some blemishes that have left some dry patches, because of this i've been on the look out for something to fix everything which is when I came across this gem. 
I love La Roche Posay packaging, it's simple white with blue and black lettering. This mask comes in a tube so it's easy to apply. The mask claims to be soothing and rehydrating which is just what my skin needs and I can definitely say it does that. 

The cream is a light blue colour and does have a strong scent to it which i'm not a huge fan of but I can see past this since the product is very good. I've used this in a few different ways, first being applied after cleansing or after doing a clay mask which can sometimes leave my skin a little dry. I apply it all over my face and leave it for 10 mintues (or longer sometimes) and wipe off any excess with a cotton pad if there is any. I've also used it on top of my evening routine when my skin felt really rubbish after having a sickness bug, this time I didn't wipe off the excess because I wanted the maximum amount of moisture. Both ways my skin has felt smoothed and nourished more so than from when I just use a moisturiser. 
As someone who has combination skin I love the fact this doesn't feel heavy on the skin but at the same time leaves my skin feeling comfortable when it is dehydrated. It also hasn't broken me out which some products like this and heavy creams in general can do.

All in all I am loving having this as an addition into my skincare routine. I tend to use it once a week or more if it is particularly dry or dehydrated. I would definitely recommend it if you have a similar skintype to me or if you skin can sometimes feel on the dry side because it really is a great product. 

Have you tried this? What do you do when your skin needs some intense moisture?
