Physiological Cleansing Gel, eagle-eyed readers and some good news from Champneys

So a couple of days ago I posted this picture…

which had a few commenters excited:

Doesn’t the La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel have mineral oil in its composition?



  1. NIALL KAVANAGH19 February 2015 at 03:11

    It does. I’m surprised she used it


  2. Caroline Hirons19 February 2015 at 05:03

    No. The one I have does not contain MO. Diff inci in diff countries.

    Ingredients list, please? The La Roche-Posay UK website has the ingredients listed, and mineral oil (listed as paraffinum liquidum) is most definitely on there!!!!

    Sure. If my word isn’t enough I can take a picture when I’m home this evening. I would point out though, that the LRP site says ‘Last update 02/08’.

    Yes please and thank you!


Firstly, I can’t tell you how weird it is to have people call you ‘she’ on your own site – as if you aren’t there – LOL – anyway: I contacted LRP and said: People, I am holding this in my hand and it does NOT have mineral oil listed. HELP. ME.’

LRP Press Office confirmed this afternoon that their website is indeed incorrect, hasn’t been updated in a long time and has now been fixed.

The Physiological Cleansing Gel does NOT contain mineral oil, the website WAS wrong, and as an aside: I am not in the habit of telling porkies. Just sayin’.

And some good news!

After I posted this picture…

..And asked if anyone knew what had happened to the brilliant Champneys Cleansing Balm – Champneys themselves left a comment on my Instagram stating that ‘Our full range is currently being redeveloped and we hope the balm will continue to feature in our future skincare line.’

Let’s all agree to take that as a ‘Yes, we’re bringing it back!’

*thumbs up all round*
