REVIEW: La Roche-Posay -Effaclar Duo (or Effaclar FRICKIN' DO NOT!!)

Firstly, let's see what is said about this particular product:

EFFACLAR DUO Corrective and Unclogging Anti-Imperfection Care helps reduce the appearance of imperfections and purifies pores. Effaclar Duo is a complete skincare solution that combines 4 active ingredients to act on the 2 major signs of skin with imperfections. Niacinamide and Piroone Olamine help reduce severe local imperfections by purifying the skin and protecting against breakouts developing. The LHA/Linoleic Acid combination helps unclog pores by eliminating dead cells responsible for their obstruction. These active ingredients are combined with soothing and anti-irritating La Roche-Posay thermal spring water.
Pores are purified, and imperfections appear reduced. Skin looks smoother and clearer. It appears to regain a long-lasting balance to help recover the qualities of more healthy-looking skin.
Effaclar is the complete solution adapted for all types of imperfection prone skin. Naturally hyperactive sebaceous glands produce an excess amount of sebum. The skin tends to become shiny. Under the influence of environmental variations, sebum can oxidise and stimulate sebaceous glands even more. The pores get blocked and imperfections may appear.

So, one day whilst browsing through Boots and stumbling across the infamous French brand, 'La Roche-Posay' aisle, I remembered 'Effaclar Duo' which has all beauty bloggers praising its spectacular results. So,I thought why not give it a go as this could cure me breaking out like a maniac!

But lo and behold after using this for two weeks, possibly longer it left my skin even more spottier and after stopping its usage, I am still breaking out! I suffer from repeat odd breakouts around my jaw and chin and after watching several reviews on Youtube, I thought I'd give it a chance but this has definitely made me think twice before purchasing any more of their products.

It has definitely not treated my pigmentation and slight acne prone skin and instead done the exact opposite. It is priced at £13.00 and I definitely think what a waste a money.

As you can see it is a white clear substance but when smoothed over it is a clear substance with a light perfumed smell. But overall, if you are looking to purchase this, read up on it before hand and here is the link which you can find out a bit more about it.

i have it and it made my face spotless, clean and wonderful. two of my friends purchased it also and are pleased with it. you reaction was rather normal, because you might have had black heads and the cream managed to bring them to the surface, therefore resulting your breakout. i'm not an expert, but that's my guessing. kisses
