Description

  • Skin Recovery Lotion by Renée Rouleau gives highly sensitive, acne-prone skin the oil-free moisture it needs without clogging the pores or causing breakouts. A blend of advanced, natural water-binding ingredients addresses all dehydration, flaking and redness issues caused by harsh acne treatments, topical prescriptions, and general irritation. Skin Recovery Lotion goes to work fast to make skin look and feel calm and comfortable. The result? Skin that looks clearer and healthier with less sensitivity.

    Wanted to love it

    Purchased this cream with hopes that it would be soothing for my sensitive skin. Unfortunately, this cream did not live up to the name in my opinion. I found it wasn’t hydrating enough for me and also made my skin flakey, stiff and broke me out. Keep in mind I only used this product for two days, but because it didn’t feel right I discontinued use. Disappointed but not against trying another RR product in the future because others I know are very satisfied with products from this line.

    Renée Rouleau Skin Care

    Hi Stephanie! Thank you for taking the time to share your review and experience. I'm sorry the Skin Recovery Lotion wasn't as moisturizing as you'd hoped! This is our lightest weight, oil-free lotion, designed for sensitive acne-prone skin. Our Hydraboost Rescue Creme is the next step up, and I think you'll find this texture to be more to your liking. Bonus, it's also recommended for sensitive skin. 😊
    I noticed your Skin Type Quiz results put you into a different skin type than the one you included here, so our esthetician, Lexi, will be reaching out to help!

    Amazing!

    This is my go to product for ANY issue I’m having. A blemish, dry patches, irritated pores, recovering from microneedling. I put it on, wake up and my skin looks perfected.

    Super hydrating and doesn’t irritate skin

    This is a great day or night moisturizer for when your skin is a bit irritated but you also don’t want something that will clog your pores. I find this helps my skin with my rashes and acne but isn’t too heavy.

    It's a godsend

    I was a little skeptical to try this because I loved the moisturizer I was using, but I gave it a try anyways and it has now easily become one of my top 3 favorite products from Renée Rouleau. It goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly, and you don't need very much. I used to have dry patches and flaking from acne treatments, but I've had none whatsoever since switching to this. It hasn't clogged my pores or made me break out. One of the main things I love about it is that it calms any redness and irritation I have going on from rubbing my face too hard, allergies, exfoliation, etc. I use it in the morning and evening. Can't recommend this product enough!
