As some of you may already know I have always been a fan of La Roche-Posay. So I was delighted when I received the new Effaclar Duo [+]from a Cara Pharmacy goodie bag. (Yes I am still getting through all the fabulous goodies from the ITWBN meet up, from AGES ago).
So basically this cream is meant to improve blemishes, oiliness and clogged pores in the skin as well as correct and prevent marks. It promises visible results in 24 hours. And to be honest, it does exactly what it says on the tin. If you can feel a pimple coming on (as I so often can) then pop this miracle cream on the little sucker and stop him in his tracks.
I have introduced this into my nightly routine and while my skin is not mark free there has been a great improvement. It comes in a 40ml tube and as you don’t slather it on (well I don’t, if anyone else thinks it works best to layer it on, then leave me a comment below and I’ll give it try) you will get your value for money. This product retails at €17.50 and is worth every cent.
Now for the science bit this formula targets blemishes at every stage of their life cycle. It also targets clogged pores, excess sebum (an oil that stops the skin from drying out), and eliminates acne marks from the moment they start to form. It soothes inflammation caused by bacteria responsible for comedones and inflammatory lesions (pimples to you and me).
It also has anti-pigmentation properties to prevent the risk of excess melanin production. This stops marks forming on the skin. I don’t have any before or after pictures I’m afraid as I totally forgot to take them but believe me this stuff really works! If you have problem skin or are just prone to the odd break-out, I mean who isn’t, then you need this in your life.
