Right now, Dermstore’s having a pretty great sale: All of French pharmacy staple La Roche-Posay’s beauty products are 25 percent off with the code LRP25 through September 17. We dug through dozens of creams, serums, and gels and picked out the eight products that appear to actually work, and have some editorial weight behind them.
Earlier this summer, the Cut’s Kathleen Hou named this the silkiest sunscreen of the year. She wrote: “La Roche-Posay’s light, milky serum is extremely viscous and absorbs into skin so well that it feels like you are wearing nothing at all. Rich in vitamins C and E, the silky formula allows you to combine your serum and sunscreen steps in one fell swoop.”

Also earlier this summer, Hou gushed about this mascara, saying it was one of her favorites that she’s “tried in a long time” and insisted that the whole office give it a whirl. She continued: “The brush is similar to the one that comes with Dior Show, with bristles so delicate and plentiful that your lashes almost look individually painted on. The formula gave my wimpy lashes a lift without caking them so that they became spidery or spiky. Instead, they just looked “extra” in a way that made my eyes appear brighter and more awake. Best of all, it’s waterproof but doesn’t require excessive elbow grease to remove.”
Original Price: $25
Another Cut beauty writer, Jessica Prince Erlich, deemed this face wash one of the best options for oily skin. She explained: “La Roche-Posay’s foaming gel washes away excess grease while simultaneously hydrating the face with ceramides, glycerin, and niacinamide so it never becomes too dry.”
Original Price: $24
Yet another Cut beauty writer, Aimee Leabon, had this to say about LRP’s daily moisturizing cream, which is ideal for those with sensitive skin: “This lotion feels lightweight, and it’s gentle enough to use on skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, and dermatitis. The limited ingredient list features antioxidant-rich thermal spring water (known for its healing properties) and rich shea butter.”
Original Price: $29
Now, we’re getting into products that the Cut has not personally vouched for, but that still seem great: like this anti-aging cream that specifically targets under-eye puffiness and fine lines.
Original Price: $34
This eye cream appears to be Dermstore’s best-selling La Roche-Posay product, and has 211 mostly five-star reviews (we like this one: “I am actually an Avon sales Rep. However, I have been using the 100% pure caffeine eye cream that I really liked, until I tried this one. In just a few days I noticed the difference under my eyes.”) It’s meant to eliminate crow’s feet and wrinkles.
Original Price: $43
We can actually personally vouch for this CC cream, which we nabbed from the giveaway bin a few years ago: It’s a lovely, SPF 30, tinted moisturizer that didn’t feel sticky, smoothed our face, and smelled nice to boot.
Original Price: $39
This three-part “acne system,” which consists of a gel cleanser, a clarifying solution, and a dual-action spot treatment, won an Allure Beauty Award last year in the Acne Treatment category.
Original Price: $30
