What I think:
I LOVE THIS!!!! It’s made for someone with combination/sensitive skin, exactly what i have. I almost always find acne treatments are so harsh on skin they create extra nightmares. I apply it after i’ve cleansed at night and sometimes before makeup in the morning if I need it, surprisingly it’s quite a good makeup base. It’s literally changed my skin. My cystic spots are almost gone and not reappearing, I barely ever get a white head anymore and my blackheads are disappearing but at a slower rate. My pores have also dramatically decreased in size. Best of all it seems to be fading my scarring. (Sorry if anyone gets grossed out).
Like every other spot eliminating cream (even prescribed creams) I was expecting my skin to become dry and flakey in patches, but that didn’t happen, infact my skin is more balanced and slightly moisturised which is more than odd.
It’s a very light cream, almost a slight gel consistency. It takes quite awhile to sink into the skin but that doesn’t bother me too much. I did have a slight stinging sensation and redness when I first started using it at night but I didn’t notice any bad effects and it stopped after afew uses. I think it was due to the active ingredient it contains and my skin taking awhile to become accustomed to it.
It was €15 for 40ml which has lasted me ages but i’ve seen it cheaper online.
Would I repurchase La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment ?
Absolutely and will continue to until I stop seeing its amazing results.Overall:
I’m so impressed with this product i’m going to check out the rest of the products in the Effaclar range. I would recommend Effaclar Duo to anyone who has sensitive/problem skin and wants something that will not dry it out and create more problems. I’ve had such a huge improvement in my skin and i’m hoping with continued use it can get even better.
