La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo


Ive seen this product everywhere and it's so popular I finally got my hands on it a couple of months ago,

The texture is a gel-cream, which promises 24 hydration and lasting mattifying effect, non sticky, non oily finish. It's also an excellent makeup base.


 I've been using it for about a month and I definetly notice a difference. My skin got cleared after one week, no breakouts anymore. Which probably means unclogged pores as well. I love the texture, which is white. It feels like a regular cream and feels a lot more soothing.

. It soaks into the skin very quickly. I think it makes a great makeup base,  to me it leaves a bit of a sticky surface, which is perfect for makeup, so that it adheres to the skin better. I don't need an extra moisturizer on top of it, because my skin is combination to oily. For a really dry skin, this on itself, may not be enough. It's definitely not oily. The smell is very fresh citrus like.

I don't have acne or huge skin problems, but when I do get the odd breakout , I love this sort of product. It definitely helped me clear my skin in a couple of days, which is great. 
Have you used this product before and what are your thoughts?

  3. I have been using this for 2 weeks now and absolutely love it! Really cleared my skin up but the acne scarring to fade takes a lot longer so hopefully it will help that too :) xx

  13. I've also just got my hands on this and have been using it at night for a couple of weeks. Not sure if it's made a huge impact on my skin though to be honest - feel like it's not 100% right for me which is weird coz everyone seems to love it!

  14. I bought this a while back, but you've now reminded me about it.

    Think I may have to give it as try again as it didn't give me any problems and my skins messing me about lol, not to mention how many good reviews it gets.

    Great post!
