Review: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+]

So this little miracle product was actually an "accidental" buy. I had heard so much hype about La Roche Posay that I ended up adding it to my shopping basket in Boots without knowing what it actually did. I quickly googled it after I purchased the product and found it was more suited for oily skin, I panicked and tried to return it. The Boots staff refused because it was a skin care product (even though it was still sealed) 

Anyways, fast forward to around a month later and I realized why there were so many reviews written about this product.  I personally see it as a spot zapper and moisturizer in one. I have had quite a few horrid under the skin and over the skin spots recently and this has helped control them. 

The actual description says: Specifically developed to target the key signs of oily, blemish-prone skin, including marks.
Clinically proven to correct the appearance of blemishes, this daily skincare solution is suitable even for sensitive skin

I would have to agree with this. This product does not break me out, it seems to dry and prevent spots.  I would recommend this product to anyone. Everyone gets the odd spot from time to time. 

This product costs around £15 

Love Laura

  6. I have the original LRP Effaclar Duo, and really liked it at first although it seems to not be as effective as it used to be so maybe I need to switch to the + version instead xx
