The skin care company known as La Roche-Posay offers skin treatments for various skin types, such as acne-prone complexions, aging skin, sensitive faces, and even dry skin. One group of products found in his line is Active C. As you may have guessed, this series of topical treatments aims to address aging or mature complexions that require assistance with fine line-reduction, age spot fading, increased collagen levels, skin firming and skin cell turnover. All La Roche-Posay treatments appear to be available online through the skincarerx official website, as well as through other sites like

There are three Active C treatments currently found on the skincarerx website. These are Active C Eyes ($35), Active C-Dry Skin ($43.50), and Active C-Normal to Combination Skin-Light ($43.50). The primary active ingredient found in all three of these topical treatments is Vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that aims to assist with skin cell turnover. Other key components are Glycerin (moisturizes and protects the skin) and Thermal Spring Water, which is also touted as an antioxidant. Each Active C treatment is to be applied daily after cleansing the face in order to repair the skin, hydrate, and undo damage from the sun and natural elements.

Product Details

The Active C series of topical skin care products from La Roche-Posay is mainly suited for aging or mature skin types. The key ingredient, which is Vitamin C, is claimed to aid with issues like skin cell turnover, sun damage, and loss of collagen/elastin. There is some explanation on the official website as to how Vitamin C penetrates the skin to assist with anti-aging, as well as some reviews posted by consumers who have tried these products. Each Active C product is sold in a single-ounce container. No clinical research is discussed, and there is no mention of a money-back guarantee at this time.

A full list of ingredients for the Active C-Dry Skin treatment is as follows: Aqua/Water, Glycerin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Nylon-12, Ascorbic Acid, Phenyl Trimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Prunus Armeniaca/Apricot Kernel Oil, Dimethicone, Dimethicone Copolyol, Sodium Citrate, Dimethiconol, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and Parfum/Fragrance.

The Good

  • The key ingredient for Active C treatments is Vitamin C, which is commonly touted as beneficial to the skin.
  • All of the ingredients for each of these treatments are presented on the website for review.

The Bad

  • Not all of the reviews posted for Active C products are positive reviews.
  • Some individuals may experience breakouts when using these skin care treatments.
  • There is no clinical research posted to support the claims about Active C.
  • Each treatment is sold in a small one-ounce container, which is not likely to last long.

The Bottom Line

All in all, the La Roche-Posay Active C line comes across in a fairly positive light. It is naturally refreshing to see all of the products’ ingredients disclosed on the website. Then again, it is wise to look over the consumer reviews for these products. You will notice that not everyone was happy with the results from Active C treatments.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
