La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo has received much love from me in it’s time and has remained a go-to product for my bad skin (ie most) days – although thanks to this little wonder, those are becoming fewer and more far between. It works to target and calm even the most angry breakouts (or those horrid under-the-skin blemishes before they happen), as well as reducing general congestion and blackheads. Suitable for even the most sensitive complexions, it doesn’t irritate or dry the skin out and all while delivering it’s spot-fighting magic. The amazing feedback that this cult beauty product continues to receive speaks for itself.
LA ROCHE POSAY EFFACLAR DUO +
It was almost fate that my original Effaclar Duo came to an end just as the improved formula that is LA ROCHE POSAY EFFACLAR DUO + was released (who says you can’t beat perfection?). It’s just as all singing and dancing as it’s predecessor but contains a new active ingredient that soothes the skin and tackles the awful scarring left behind after a spot has cleared. So much so, that ‘after just 24 hours blemishes appear visibly reduced’.
As before, a very light and non-sticky texture that leaves a lasting matte effect on the skin yet still offering great hydration – sounds like a perfect base for makeup, yes? It can be applied as an all-over face treatment if required or just to the specific areas of need. This is of course dependent on your skin type, as is whether you choose to use with or without a moisturiser on top (I often find it to be moisturising enough on it’s own for the day but again, others may not).
I’m soexcited about this one and can’t wait to report back after I’ve had chance to use it properly but so far so good.. and if the original is anything to go by, this will be a new favourite.
