If there's one thing I've taken away from the photos leaked from the And Just Like That... set, it's that fashion has changed a lot since the rollicking days of the early aughts. Personal style choices aside, it's brought on the warm fuzzies to see Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis reunited — and if you're wondering how on Earth SJP looks so amazing, I have three words for you: La Roche-Posay.
The French brand has a healthy celebrity fan club, with members like Kelly Ripa, Heidi Klum, Alexa Chung, Anne Hathaway, Leighton Meester, and Nina Dobrev. And as Parker told Today in 2018, she's pledged allegiance to the brand's Toleriane Fluide Soothing Protective Moisturizer for over a decade. "I've used this for at least 10 years. It's light, unscented and just the greatest moisturizer I've ever found. My children use it as well," she said. "It's the only moisturizer I've used forever. It's just La Roche-Posay fluid. That's it. It's amazing. It's very thin, so you can use it to touch yourself up. It's great."
You can still find the exact moisturizer on Dermstore, but on Amazon, it's been replaced by a slightly updated version, the Toleriane Ultra Sensitive Skin Face Moisturizer. Both are beloved by shoppers, but the latter specifically wins reviews for its anti-aging prowess. "This product is simply awesome! I have very sensitive skin, and this is my savior," one person wrote. "I love the moisture it brings to my skin... [it] helps with any blemishes and [is] great at reducing wrinkles."

Considering the mild formula, it's no wonder that Parker uses it on her kids (although whether they appreciate the French formula is untold). Said formula includes the brand's trademark calming prebiotic thermal water, shea butter, squalane, and a dipeptide called neurosensine. According to a shopper, the moisturizer "saved their life" — and skin — from acute dermatitis, leveling redness and brightening their face while at it.
"Best on the market," began another 47-year-old fan. "I started with brands like Lancome, Chanel, Origins, Prescriptives, and Estée Lauder...I have to say that this is the most effective, moderately priced moisturizer on the market. It's lightweight but still gives VISIBLE results in just a few days." Even those with highly sensitive skin say they can use the dermatologist-recommended moisturizer without fearing the "severe allergic reactions" they get from other products, and per more people, its smoothing effect is superlative.
"I have very sensitive, dry, rosacea-prone skin with broken capillaries," wrote a different 47-year-old reviewer. "This is a wonderful, very simple moisturizer that does not irritate my skin. This is the first moisturizer that helps my skin look like it did when I was young. I love it."
