Years ago I’ve realised that when it comes to the skin is more important to invest in very good creams/serums/treatments than makeup, taking care of my skin has become a major thing for me. So, since then I am choosing just dermatological products specially made for my skin type from brands like Avene, La Roche-Posay or Vichy and today I have another review about La Roche-Posay a brand that I really like.
I’m trying my best to have a clear beautiful skin, but you know what it’s hard, especially with an oily skin type and as if that wasn’t enough I have problems with red skin, blackheads and flaky skin. The good part is that I think I’m on the right path following a routine that made my skin looking better and better, and if you want to know more about it read the blog post here.
I mentioned in my autumn skincare routine about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, I’ve read and heard so many good things and I was too curious not to try it. I found it on Farmacia Tei online at a very great price, 10€. It’s supposed to reduce the appearance of imperfections, control shine, help reduce marks, and hydrate the skin.
“Specifically formulated for oily, blemish and acne-prone skin in adults and teenagers. A dual action daily gel moisturiser that reduces the appearance of spots and blackheads, controls shine and helps protect the skin from the causes of red and brown coloured marks that are often left by spots. Hydrates skin for 24 hours. Suitable for even sensitive skin.
– Anti-blemish moisturiser that corrects and hydrates oily, blemish and acne-prone skin
– Visibly reduces spots, controls shine and helps to reduce the appearance of marks
– For clearer skin in 4 weeks”
– a small amount is enough
– good as a makeup base
– made my pores smaller
– prevents spots, not treating it
– doesn’t treat spots
– it did work for marks
Price: 10€ (40ml) from comenzi.farmaciatei.ro
I really like it, I recommended for combo/oily skin that needs help with large pores, excessive sebum and hydration. I was impressed by how good was for my large pores, I have those on my nose and cheeks and was so hard to cover, but now are much smaller. I like that is very fast-absorbing, I don’t have the patience to rube creams into my skin, and keeps my skin mattified for a couple of hours, another plus.
In my case, the downside of the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is that it doesn’t treat spots just prevents. Since I started using this cream I no longer have problems with spots, but if one appears it just heals by itself.
Overall is a good cream that improves combo/oily skin, but in my opinion is not the perfect choice if you have acne and want to treat spots or other serious skin problems, otherwise, give it a try.
