La Roche-Posay...

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

Hi Guys,

So just before Christmas I decided to jump on the bandwagon and headed on over to my nearest Boots store to pick up the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. To give you a bit of background as to my skin type, I have oily to combination skin and had recently changed my pill, which was causing me quite a number of breakouts. As you all know with the busy social calendar over Christmas I desperately needed something to help manage my skin and as I had heard great reviews about it, I thought it would be worth a try!

The packaging is pretty simple as it comes in a small tube and the price isn't too bad at £13. The cream itself smells gorgeous and you only have to use the smallest amount to cover your face. The only downside is that the tube isn't clear, so you can't tell how much of it you have left and I'm always left worrying that I'll go to use it and there being nothing left! :-O

I started using this once a day, mainly in the evenings after I had taken my make up off. To be honest, after the first week I was a little skeptical as I hadn't noticed much of a change, but for all you inpatient readers it seemed that perseverance was key and after 3 weeks I noticed that my breakouts were less frequent and not half as bad as they used to be. I will warn you, I did experience a large breakout into the second week but these soon cleared up and it seemed that I had gotten over the worst of it. 

I'd say that now, this is definitely my go-to product for spot zapping and I only ever seem to get the odd one or two. So if you're trying it out at the moment and aren't getting anywhere or want to try it out, I'd definitely recommend it, BUT make sure you stick with it, as it'll only get better with time!

How have you guys found this or do you have any other essential spot treatments you'd recommend? 

Thanks & Freckles,
La Roche Posay Cream
