Everyone on TikTok Freaks Out Over This Affordable Derm-Approved Skincare Brand

One thing that happens when you’re a beauty writer: Friends text you all the time asking about products, brands, or random TikTok trends. Often, I have to be the bearer of bad news (no, you shouldn’t use lube as primer), but sometimes I get to send an enthusiastic rave review. Such was the case recently, when not one but two friends asked if the hype around French skincare brand La Roche-Posay was real. 

"YES. Which products are you looking at? Doesn’t matter, they’re all good,” was essentially my response—plus a slew of emoji to stress the point. La Roche-Posay products are one of the few things that dermatologists, estheticians, and skincare TikTok are in agreement on because they're just that good.

Known for its sunscreens and gentle formulations, the brand has been a French-pharmacy staple for decades. Better yet, the products are also affordable. Read on for 16 of the best La Roche-Posay skincare products, including those recommended by board-certified dermatologists Michelle Henry and Corey L. Hartman.
