About the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermallergo Fluid
While most moisturisers on the market provide basic hydration, the La Roche-Posay Dermallergo Fluid blends easily into the skin to deliver instant long-lasting hydration for up to 48 hours while repairing and protecting the skin’s barrier.
The product is renovated from their bestselling Toleriane Ultra Light, an intense soothing fluid moisturiser that is designed for ultra-sensitive skin.
Formulated with gentle, hypoallergenic ingredients, the new formula goes beyond moisturising but also comes with instant anti-redness and anti-relapse efficacy.
This is thanks to the addition of Sphingobioma, which strengthens the functions of the skin’s microbiome, and the returning star ingredient Neurosensine, a high strength soothing agent that targets skin irritation and sensitivity.
As it is so gentle and lightweight, you can use this product as your daily moisturiser – morning or night, even if you have the most sensitive of skin.
Writer’s review of La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermallergo Fluid
We invited one of our writers, Zile Chua, to test out the product. As someone with normal skin type, she was excited to try out a new moisturiser to see how well it would improve her skin’s texture and improve hydration.
On first impression, she was impressed with the design of the product, particularly at how you can simply twist the nozzle to unlock, pump it, and twist it again to close it. This helps maintain the integrity of the formula and makes it fuss-free and more hygienic.
She also found that it smelled ‘clean’; there wasn’t much of a scent.
The product was non-greasy, though a little sticky at first, was completely absorbed in less than 30 seconds. Her skin felt smoother and more hydrated and stayed that way throughout the day, right from the first time she used it.
Using two pumps of product, she massaged it into her face and neck every day for a week. By the end of the week’s trial, she felt like her skin was smoother and softer than before.
One thing she highlighted and was impressed by was the reduction in facial bumps she saw on her skin over time. She also liked how she never felt like her skin was dry or tight, even while going about her day in Singapore’s humid weather.
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermallergo Fluid review: 10 readers give their honest opinions
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermallergo Fluid
The general consensus of the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermallergo Fluid is that it’s lightweight, fast-absorbing, and gives you immediate, long lasting hydration.
Most reviewers loved how non-sticky it felt on their skin, and how it has no distinctive scent. Maybe that’s why 70% of them consider this product one of their top three moisturisers!
Our readers felt that their skin is softer, smoother, and totally plumper, with most experiencing immediate hydration. It kept their skin well hydrated for hours on end, even on days when they cut down on product or weren’t able to resort to their full routines.
Those with sensitive skin were happy that this product caused no breakouts and no irritation. In fact, about 50% of our readers with sensitive skin saw a reduction in their sensitivity over time.
Some also commented on the packaging as they love how pretty it is and how you can take it around with you anywhere. However, the locking pump mechanism might be difficult to navigate around the first time.

Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive, hypersensitive/allergic
Skin concerns: Textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, acne/blemishes, sensitive/tingling/stinging skin, redness
The product was gel-like, lightweight, and did not leave a sticky residue on my skin. As someone with sensitive skin, on first use, I immediately noticed that it was not making me itch and the product took well to my skin.
I only needed to use two pumps for the entire face, and maybe need an additional pump if I were to go for the neck. I like how it’s on the smaller side as it makes it easy to bring around if needed.
I can see that my redness lessened throughout the past two weeks and my skin wasn’t irritated during that period. One thing I love about this product is there’s no scent to it and it didn’t cause me any breakouts!
Loving the packaging and pump of the product too, as it makes it super hygienic. I’m definitely looking to repurchase this.

Skin type: Oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Dull skin, textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, sensitive/tingling/stinging skin, redness
My immediate first impressions were that there’s no scent to this product and it’s more hygienic because it’s a pump.
I only needed a single pump for my face and another for my neck. It felt velvety, gel-like, lightweight, and non-sticky against my skin.
After one week of using the product, I saw a reduction in my skin sensitivity. I really like how it’s easily absorbed, scentless, and keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day.
I would consider this my top moisturiser right now! It’s been a very pleasant experience, I’m going to continue repurchasing.

Skin type: Combination-dry, sensitive
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads, sensitive/tingling/stinging skin
When I saw the packaging, I thought it was pretty, but it was a little difficult to figure out how to use at first.
I used two pumps on the face and neck. The texture felt gel-like and watery to me. While it was a bit sticky on first application, it was better after some time.
Is it among my top moisturisers? Yes, I really like its non-greasy and light texture, as well as the lack of fragrance.
Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with this product. It made my skin less dehydrated and it didn’t feel greasy at all.
Nicole Tan, 23
Skin type: Normal, combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, blackheads/whiteheads, acne/blemishes, sensitive/tingling/stinging skin
I love the packaging! It’s also lightweight, non-sticky, and absorbed really nicely. My skin felt moisturised and looked radiant after one use.
Using three squirts to my face and neck, I immediately saw and felt that my skin was more moisturised and smooth. My skin sensitivity also reduced within three days.
It’s an easy moisturiser that boosted my overall skin health. I love how it’s lightweight and it’s easily absorbed. It kept my skin supple throughout the day and did not make me oily after a few hours, something that most moisturisers do to me.

My first impressions of the scent was that it was pure and light – not too heavily scented. It glided on smoothly, gave a glow to my skin without a greasy vibe, and it wasn’t too sticky for me.
Silky, velvety, and gel-like, it absorbs extremely quickly and my face brightened and became more plump after three days!
I really can’t stress how much I love its texture. It’s non-greasy and absorbs quickly, which is great for busy people like myself. It’s definitely in my top three list of moisturisers.
One thing I want to say, though, is that I had some difficulties using the pump because I didn’t know there was a locking mechanism, but I can see how practical it is for travelling as it won’t leak.

Skin concerns: Textured skin, dry/dehydrated skin, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads, acne/blemishes, sensitive/tingling/stinging skin
I only used a single pump on my face but it immediately felt softer and smoother, I was immediately impressed by how light and hydrating it was.
The product really made my skin feel soothed and less sensitive. I saw a reduction in skin sensitivity after only one day’s time.
I’ll continue trying out the product due to how instantly it hydrates my skin. In fact, I think it might be too rich for me! I’ll probably only use this at night because of that.
Amanda Andrews, 28
Skin type: Dry, combination-dry, sensitive
Skin concerns: Dull skin, textured skin, dry/dehydrated skin, visible/enlarged pores
Firstly, I like how this product isn’t perfumed as it means I can use it on my partner and my child who have sensitive skin as well.
The hydrating effects were also better than expected. It absorbed easily, didn’t leave a sticky layer on my skin, which stayed well-hydrated and soft for hours.
For its price it really stacks up against pricier products and brands, so it’s definitely among my favourite moisturisers now!
I liked it a lot, it worked well with my skin condition and was easy to use. Even on days when I didn’t have time for my full routine, I only use the fluid and it was sufficient to hydrate my skin.

Skin type: Dry
Skin concerns: Dull skin, uneven skin tone, textured skin, dry/dehydrated skin, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads
I felt the scent was strange, but absorbed very quickly and hydrated my skin quickly. There was a mild cooling sensation when I applied it too.
The texture was silky, velvety, lightweight, and didn’t leave a sticky residue on my face, which is great for me.
It’s definitely among the top three moisturisers I like because of how hydrating it is. It was a good primer before application of makeup too.
I really like its non-sticky texture and how it delivers such long-lasting hydration. As a bonus, you don’t have to use a lot of product to achieve this result too.
Andrea Wong, 23
Skin type: Dry
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, dry/dehydrated skin, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads, acne/blemishes
Immediate impression: I love how lightweight and soothing this product is. Using one or two pumps, I massaged it onto my face and neck.
This is currently my favourite moisturiser; I love that it’s light, non-greasy, and super effective!
Overall, I liked the sensation it brought to my skin. My pores became less visible and I had lesser bumps on my skin.
The lines around my eye area became less visible too, and my skin felt supple and hydrated.

When I first used the product, I found there was no scent and it was easy to use. I was also impressed by how portable the packaging is so you can easily take it anywhere.
The product felt lightweight and non-sticky. I used a single drop for my face and another for my neck and felt that my skin was refreshed after a single use.
It’s one of my top moisturisers to use because it absorbs quickly, is lightweight, non-sticky, and non-greasy. In short, I love the texture!
What’s more, it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day and there is no need to reapply to sustain the level of hydration.
