Laponie was born out of our founder Kristina’s need to find products for her sensitive and challenging skin, and now our mission is to help you take care of your skin the right way. A while back we asked our customers to take part in a three-week-long Laponie test group, in which we created a customised and individual, daily skincare routine to tackle different skin issues and problems. This is Anna’s story about how our products helped her with her sensitised and irritated skin.
Anna’s story: "I am almost 40 years old and haven’t really had any skin issues before. However, within a year my skin has clearly become more sensitive and I think I have POD (perioral dermatitis, a rash-like eczema around the mouth). I used to be able to use a wide range of natural cosmetics, but now I really don't dare put anything on my skin. But I am in desperate need of hydration."
"I started my trial period with the Milk Cleanser, Balancing Essence Mist, Calming Serum and Light Face Cream, and once a week I used the Hydrating Face Mask & Cream. Because I needed more moisture and my skin felt dry, we added the Softening Face Oil. I felt like the Milk Cleanser on its own was not enough to take off makeup (I used quite a lot of makeup), and so we changed that to the Oil Cleanser, which turned out to be really good. It removes make-up easily and it does not dry or irritate the skin."
Anna's skin calmed down, especially around the nasolabial folds, and surface dryness decreased, and the feeling of tightness disappeared. However, we decided to continue the trial period, and modified the routine to include the Milk Cleanser in the morning and the Oil Cleanser in the evening. We also added the Renewing Serum for the morning (in addition to the Calming Serum, which Anna would only use in the evenings). The Essence, Cream, Mask and Oil were kept as before.
We continued the test period for a total of nine weeks with Anna. This is how she describes her skin at the end of the test period: "My skin is calm and has a clearer tone. It also feels like my scars/discoloration has faded. My POD has stayed under control. now been well under control. I would recommend Laponie’s products for sensitive skin and those suffering from POD, and I will use them at least when my POD is active."
