|La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Review|
Finally a product that does what it says it will do. I have been using the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo for two and a half months now and I LOVE it. My skin has improved remarkably ever since I have started using this. I have closed comedones (white heads) on my jaw line almost always, and this is the only thing that has actually helped me get rid of them, and also reduce the frequency of my break outs. I don't use this like a spot treatment, I use my trusty Lush Grease Lightening ( Read my full review on it) to spot treat large pimples, but use this all over my face twice a day after cleansing my face. I use a very thin layer of it all over my face, just like it is told in the tube. It is very gentle, but the area under my nose and upper lips is very very sensitive, so I feel a slight tingle on those areas. Your skin starts generating a new layer of skin because of the Micro exfoliating LHA in it, so to protect the new skin I like to use a good sunscreen during the day (Neutrogena Sheer Sunscreen in SPF 50) , and use it on its own at night. It has an oil free, non drying, and fast absorbing texture, which hydrates and mattifies my skin. I have really large open pores all over my face and this has substantially reduced the appearance of enlarged pores and redness from dried blemishes. I love using this as a base for my makeup.
You only need a teeny tiny amount of the cream so the nozzle is perfect for that. Its very sanitary and doesn't let too much product clump on the edge.
The efficacy of this cream depends on how often you use it. I started seeing a difference in my skin only since I have started using this every single day, so I am sure that if you use this every day too, you will most definitely see results.
This is a really good anti-acne product, and this should be a staple for anyone suffering from incessant acne. I highly recommend it.
It is priced at Rs 1190 for 40ml, and you can find it at Health & Glow and Noble Medical across Mumbai and online at slassy.com
