La Roche Posay REDERMIC R (retinol cream)

REVIEW: La Roche Posay REDERMIC R (retinol cream)
Lately I've been searching products to treat face milia. If you don't know what milia is I would summarize milia as flashed toned skin bumps that form when your skin can't get rid of keratin deeply underneath your skin. You can't squeeze them that easily and if you try you can have major consequences like skin scaring. I have been struggling with this on and off for two years now. And it’s pretty bad when it's warmer weather.

  • 0.3% retinol.
  • Exclusive Retinol Booster Complex (Retinol Linoleate + Adenosine)
  • Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA) 0.3%

I don't have milia under eyes like most people have but yet on cheeks and lower face line (line from ears to lips). I can honestly say this condition is very bothering because no matter what I do nothing seems to work.

So while searching, I came across some articles that say glycolic acid and retinols creams help treat milia and prevent further appearance. There are two options: over the counter or prescription retinol creams. For more information’s click here.

I did my research and most over the counter retinol creams are very expensive since retinol is used as an anti-aging treatment aside from treating acne.
La Roche Posay REDERMIC R (retinol cream)
I’ve been using Redermic R Anti-Wrinkle Treatment cream for two weeks and I really like it so far. I have noticed improvement in my skin condition. I use this cream only at night combined with my night cream. I think it helps but I can’t be sure at this moment. For now, I can see little improvement in my milia and overall skin texture. But I’m aware that it takes time to clear milia. I will continue to use this cream and will report back with another feedback. This cream has light texture and doesn’t dry out my sensitive skin. I use this cream only on problematic areas not my whole face. Suitable for women who have sensitive skin or who have experienced feelings of discomfort on the skin when using retinol based skincare in the past. It comes in a tube of 30ml (256kn Croatia) or you can check it at Feelunique for  £29.50.


Have you tried any retinol creams?

    1. It's great for sensitive skin. I was scared of trying retinol creams since I have dry skin but this doesn't irritate my face at all.

  2. I actually think I have this and heard retinol is really good however I've been worried about using retinol as I have very sensitive skin. This is definitely on my wish list at the moment!

  3. Oh cool, I hadn't heard about that treatment for milia before!

    I remember a derm telling me it was what happens to dry skin that doesn't have enough oil to produce proper blemishes but is congested, so I just use mask and have a proper scrub with a flannel. Hope this continues to work well for you!

    1. I was searching something that I could use on a daily basis to clear my skin from milia. And found this. Still have to try toners with glycolic acid I heard they also help treat and prevent milia.

  4. I use retinol-based creams all the time and love them! In my opinion, Shiseiso and Clarins are doing a great job with anti-aging skincare. I also love La Roche Posay and Vichi though!
