Hi beauties. ☼
This product has been highly raved about in the beauty community. Although there are probably thousands of reviews about this product on YouTube, I haven’t seen many posts about it here in the blogosphere. So here we have it, as part of my project 10 pan, I have for you a review on the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (now named effaclar duo+).
La Roche-Posay is a french brand that has become popular in the beauty community over the past year or so. It’s most famous product is this, the Effaclar Duo! It is a corrective/unclogging, anti-imperfection care, the formula is more like a serum than a moisturiser (see image below). This product has been highly have raved about for the simple fact; it actually does what it says on the bottle.
What La Roche-Posay claim:
Possibly the last anti-blemish cream you will ever try, La Roche-Posay are so confident that Effaclar Duo+ will give you clearer looking skin, that they’ll give your money back if it doesn’t.
La Roche-Posay’s ‘money back guarantee’ definitely does instill the hype that this is a brilliant product & guess what? IT IS! When I purchased this the hype was no-where near as big as it is now, so I didn’t know what to expect. But I can confidently say I was pleasantly surprised & still am!
Effaclar Duo has definitely given me clearer looking skin. It has been specifically made to target oily/blemish prone skin, hallelujah!! La Roche-Posay claims that it is “clinically tested to correct the appearance of blemishes, unclog pores and refine skin texture.” , this little tube of magic really does do all of that & it is suitable for sensitive skin!! Obviously you have to use it regularly (can be used morning and/or night) to see a difference, after a week or so I started to notice differences. You may notice more of a change in your skin if you use it morning & night, but I only apply it on a night after my moisturiser!
How to use – apply to a freshly cleansed face (I also apply moisturiser underneath) like you would any other face product, I also like to massage it in to the jaw-line as I feel this works it into the skin best & helps to eliminate those annoying under-the-skin blemishes!
It applies onto the skin like any other moisturiser/serum, however, it does leave the face feeling quite tight. To combat this I like to apply my night moisturiser of choice (for an evening skincare routine click here) before applying the effaclar duo, I wait for my moisturiser to sink into my skin before applying this product. This hasn’t hindered the power of the effaclar duo, it seems to work exactly the same as when I didn’t use a moisturiser with it (my face just felt dry, haha!!).
Thank you all for reading number 7 of my project 10 pan reviews. I hope you’re enjoying these reviews & if you’d like to know more about this product then please comment below or contact me through any of my social media websites (links below). xo
