Another day, another skincare review.......

La Roche Posay Effalcar Duo Review


Spots. Most likely the most irritating thing in existence. Whether it's acne-prone skin, teenage years or that time of the month we've all battled with spots or acne at some stage of our lives [if you haven't, then do spill your secret ;-)]. It's certainly a pain but La Roche Posay have come to the rescue with their Effaclar Duo [+]. 

This spot cream is not only designed to treat spots but it also prevents/treats scarring, reduces redness and unclogs blocked pores. This product is very affective and really 'does what it says on the tin'. After a month of use my scarring/acne marks had visibly reduced and I could hardly notice them anymore. It also reduced the amount of spots I got: I normally get a few around a certain time of the month but whenever I have this in my routine I might get one, if any and my skin felt a lot smoother as well. Whenever this runs out and I'm too lazy to buy more, I always notice a difference in my skin! I'm on my fourth bottle and I honestly don't think I can live without this!

It's designed for oily, blemish-prone skin but I have dry/dehydrated skin and I don't have any issues with it drying or stripping my skin. In fact it's very moisturising and leaves the skin feeling so smooth before you even put on any moisturiser. My skin is also quite sensitive - I used to use it all over my face but I thought it was a little harsh on certain areas so now I just stick to applying it where I need it. It has a lightweight cream-gel texture that's very cooling on the skin and it doesn't leave a sticky or greasy residue. It also doesn't have a clinical smell like most other spot treatments but rather a delicious sweet scent. Lovely!

Overall I have no complaints about the Effaclar Duo. There's nothing I don't love about it and my skin always thanks me for it! The La Roche Posay Effacer Duo can be bought in Boots and it costs €17.99.

What are your favourite spot treatments?
