REVIEW: La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +

After all the buzz about Effaclar Duo last year, La Roche-Posay are back with Effaclar Duo +, containing all the benefits of the original plus more.
I'm sure you've heard all about this wonder product already but one more review doesn't hurt, right?






What I think: As well as targeting blemished and oily skin, Effaclar Duo + also helps to banish the dark marks that are left behind after a breakout.  The scarring that acne leavers behind is sometime worse than the actual spot myself in my opinion; Whilst spots usually last for a week, my scars can last up to two months which makes the skin look worse than it actually is and they are also sometimes hard to cover.
It's fab that they've catered for this skincare problem in an acne cream as sometimes this is forgotten about.  I've been using this morning and evening for a couple of weeks now and really like it.
After the initial breakout (which normally happens once I try new products) my skin is settling down and I have noticeably less visible red marks now which means it's a thumbs up from me.

This retails for £15.50, slightly more expensive than the original and is available in Boots stores now!  Will you be trying it?

Have you tried Effaclar Duo +?  What are your favourite products for blemished skin?

  3. I've heard so much about this product - very tempting to get drawn in. But I just don't think it would do too much for me, since I haven't got particularly blemish-prone or oily skin. Still tempted though - beauty blogging hey!

  6. This stuff is literally holy grail for me. I will never be without it (unless it someday stops working like it has been, which is to say instantly and comprehensively, on previously terrible skin!)

  10. I do like the sound of this, but it's a bit expensive to be something that I buy regularly - I suppose if I saw amazing results from it it's be worth it, but you don't know until you've splashed out :\ x

  11. I have never tried this before although I love La Roche-Posay products! I have been using the Bioderma Sébium Global for the last 2 months and it has worked really well for me. Beats blemishes really well and doesn't try my skin out! Can't recommend it enough! x

  12. I definitely want to try this product as the spots I get on my chin always leave scars and I find them hard to cover up! Must remember to put this on my list next time I go to Boots. xo

  15. I bought this from Escentual and it was only £10, it worked so well on my skin that I also bought a cleanser and a moisturiser/primer from them. Still definitely keeping my hands on the Effeclar Duo+, it's miraculous!

  17. I've been a big fan of the previous EFC DUO, so it's naturally that I grab the + one as soon as it came on market :). It's great!

  27. I' ve tried the original one and it's doesn't do much for my oily and acne prone skin . not worth the hype for me .

    but maybe the duo+ is going to be better .
