La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + Review

Saturday, 29 August 2015

A week last Wednesday I won La Roche-Posay's twitter competition 'Wish Wednesday', I received a message off a member of the team on the day to say it had been dispatched and it arrived the morning after. Amazing service!
I've tried a few products from La Roche-Posay in the past such as the Serozinc and Rosalic Moisturiser and I've always been seriously impressed. The product tells us that after 24 hours it can make the skin look visibly less red and within 8 days imperfections appear significantly reduced. For me my redness is a big problem with my skin, I've always had oily skin and suffered with acne until around 2 years ago. Currently my skin is red, oily, clogged with a few scars I have leftover from my acne and of course the occasional breakout. 
I've now been using this for 8 days day and night and I can already see the difference in my skin. It's a lot less red and irritable and there's no sign of any breakouts on the horizon. Another benefit of using the product is how much softer and smoother my skin has become over this past week. 
I apply the Effaclar Duo after I have cleansed and moisturised in place of a moisturiser, day and night. It's made of a gel formula which is super soothing on the skin and has a mattifying effect to it making it an excellent makeup base as your makeup can stick to it! 
I'm definitely going to be keeping this as part of my skincare routine for a long time coming and I'll definitely purchase it in the future! I'm also going to be looking forward to seeing what effects this can have on reducing my scars and dark spots.

  1. I absolutely love this product! It really helped my oily skin stay calm throughout the day. La Roche Posay's other Effacer products work so well too.

    1. I'm definitely going to be looking into the other products in the Effaclar products in the future!
