KP is KO'd with La Roche-Posay Iso-Urea



It's not often I respond with lightening speed to a press release that lands here at Casa Cherry, it's even less often that the product in question arrives on my doorstep within 12 hours but them's the breaks when you're dealing with La Roche-Posay I guess. Thankfully. 

The product in question is the new Iso-Urea Smoothing and Moisturising Body Milk (that's not really a milk at all) but once I'd read the blurb: 

'La Roche-Posay Iso-Urea body milk is able to permeate the epidermis on a long lasting basis. Enriched with shea butter, this formula brings essential lipids to the skin to efficiently restore the cutaneous barrier and soothe tightness.'

...and considered the fact that La Roche-Posay have never let me down before I knew I had to try it. 


Available in a 200ml tube: €15.95 or 400ml Pump: €24.95

Promising to renovate dry skin deep down and produce results from first application were pretty lofty claims, even for LRP so when Paula (the lovely PR) explained that the milk was a little thicker than most and should probably be used at night, following a bath or shower, I pretty much watched the clock until sack time.

The soft Iso-Urea cream is lightly but pleasantly scented and despite its thick formulation rubs in easily to a soft sheen on the skin. I've been using it on my upper arms and legs for the past three weeks now to counteract the dreaded chuck feed effect that can afflict so many of us in the winter months (That's KP to those lucky enough not to suffer with it)


More an unctuous cream than a milk to be fair 
My results so far? Pretty frickin' great. The worst part about bundling up in the winter months for me is that skin can feel claustrophobic under all those layers, resulting in scratching and itching at the skin (Yep I'm Itchy AND Scratchy). That's a nightmare when you're already suffering with KP and can leave your raised lumps and bumps torn, damaged and at risk of scarring. 

Since I've been using Iso-Urea I've basically knocked the itch on the head. My skin is soft and comfortable, clothes aren't irritating it and when the office gets too warm I'm happy to shed my cardigan because my skin appears smoother, more evenly toned and all round less angry. (Tops of my legs look great too but I won't be dropping trou in my place of work any time soon, you'll have to just trust me on that one).

€24.95 may seem a little spendy but having considered the small amount of product needed for each application and the great results I've been having already, I'll certainly be repurchasing. 

Get in mah La Roche Posay arsenal, Iso-Urea, you're part of the family now.

Better than the eucerin 10% urea cream. That really takes redness out of my KP. Hate it , would love smooth arms. Exfoliation doesn't work for me!

Scarie said...

That first sentence should hae had a question mark as in is it better??

Ohh! Colour me intrigued! Dreamcream and Dreamwash from Lush have sorted out the KP on my arms but I've never managed to sort out the tops of my legs. I think I'll be giving this bad boy a go.

the internet can be much more helpful than ever before.
