I certainly have my favourites when it comes to skin care (My Liz Earle vlog can be found here), however I am always on the look out for new products to help my spot prone skin get and stay clear. With such a lot of hype around the Effaclar range by La Roche-Posay I was drawn in, (like I am to heaps of products thanks to all those lovely blogs out there!!) and I popped out to buy the Effaclar Foaming Gel and Effaclar Duo + to see what all the fuss was about.
Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel.
I love a foaming face wash because I really feel like I am cleaning my face and this product does just that. It fully removes all my make up; including those panda eyes! My skin is oily and sensitive but sometimes prone to dryness on my cheeks – A tricky one to find a product to suit such a delicate mixture, but the Foaming Gel manages to do just this. Soap-free, alcohol-free, Paraben-free, Colourant-free – this product manages to make my skin feel so clean but doesn’t strip it or make it feel tight afterwards, I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and haven’t had any major break outs so I will keep it up and see how much of a difference it makes longer term.
There is so much love for this product out there…This is the 2nd edition of this super product from the La Roche-Posay laboratories who are constantly working with dermatologists to produce such wonder products for sensitive skin. I’m not going to get into the complicated science bit; check out the website if you want to know that. But what you do need to know is this non-greasy gel is that not only is it seriously good at zapping spots, it also works wonders on the marks left behind from old spots, as well as pigmentation, (I suffer from Melasma) and unclogs pores making them appear smoother; this product deserves all the hype! You could use it all over the face after cleansing and toning, or as a topical solution. Unfortunately my fragile skin hasn’t taken to well to it as yet and has broken into a rough, dry texture in the areas I’ve used it, but it has really helped the spots I’ve tried it on so I am going to keep slowly introducing it and hope that it gets used to it so I can benefit from all of its super dooper powers!
Effaclar Purifying Foaming gel is available for £11 and the Effaclar Duo+ is around £15 from Boots.
Have you tried any of the La Roche-Posay Effaclar range? How did you get on with it?
