The Review Post | La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo +(*)
i've said it before, and i'll say it again - i am still on the hunt for the ultimate skin-clearer-upper and spot-preventer, so when i was given the chance to try out the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+(*), i jumped at the chance. i'd heard quite a lot of rave reviews about it helping to reduce the appearance of blemished and just generally improve the look of skin, so i was quite excited to give it a whirl.
La Roche-Posay are so confident in this product helping to clear up skin that they actually offer you your money back if you don't see effects in six weeks, so when i started trying this about three weeks ago, i had pretty high hopes. it's clinically proven to 'correct the appearance of blemishes, help pores look less clogged, make skin feel smoother and fight against marks' - all skin issues that i have, and issues i can safely say have been dramatically improved since i started using this. i apply this just before i go to bed, and occasionally in the morning, too, and as this is the only new introduction into my skincare routine, i know it's this which has helped my skin clear up. my spot breakouts are now few and far between (maybe one or two new ones a week?), and when blemishes do pop up, they are nowhere near as vicious and stubborn as they have been previously, and are much less noticeable on the skin and a hell of a lot easier to disguise with makeup during the day. any redness from blemishes clears up overnight and my skin just looks all round more even. it's also feeling a lot smoother and just feels in a much more better condition than before i started using this. just a pea-sized amount is enough to cover the whole face, and it sinks into the skin really nicely and doesn't leave it looking shiny or feeling greasy.
it's safe to say that this is one of the very few skin products i've tried that has made a prolonged and noticable improvement to my skin, and one which i will definitely be repurchasing over and over, as i daren't think about what my skin would go back to without it! i'll also be on the lookout for more products to try from La Roche-Posay, so if you have any suggestions then do let me know!
if you want to pick yourself up some of this, then it's currently got 1/3 off at Escentual until the end of March, or you can pick it up in Boots as part of their 3 for 2 offer!
