La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] // & Giveaway!

A few weeks back I mentioned in my skincare routine post that I had run out of my beloved Effaclar Duo [+] anti-blemish cream, well the lovely people over at La Roche-Posay very kindly sent me another tube… they also sent me one to give away to one you lovely lot! How nice!

I’m just gunna confess, I bloody love the Effaclar Duo [+] and I can’t be without it! Especially around “that time of the month” when I start to get little break outs in my t-zone, it really helps to keep my skin in check, stops the dreaded spotties in their tracks and also helps control the oillyness in my t-zone. It even helps reduce the pores on my nose!

The write up on this says that “the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ anti-blemish cream is specifically formulated to target the key signs of oily, blemish-prone skin. Clinically tested to correct the appearance of blemishes, unclog pores and refine skin texture. This daily skincare solution is suitable even for sensitive skin.” I would have to say that’s a pretty darn accurate description! I have extremely sensitive skin and this really doesn’t irritate it at all.

I apply this morning and night just in the areas I need it most – I tend to steer clear of my cheeks and stick to just my forehead, nose and chin. I really do notice a difference straight away. The redness of my little blemishes disappear and practically go away within a day or 2!

I know this sounds kinda weird, but I also like to use the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ anti-blemish cream on my upper arms too. I live in an area with extremely hard water and sometimes suffer with horribly little bumps (sort of like little spots) on my upper arms – yuck I know! I put this on after I’ve showered and before my body moisturiser and within a couple of days I really notice a difference, the bumps all but disappear and my skin is so much smoother!

I don’t know how well this would work with Acne prone skin, as *touches wood a million times* I only suffer with the occasional blemish or breakout, but I would 100% recommend this product to anyone, it’s a great multi-tasking product! In fact I’ve recommended this to every one of my girlfriends and they’ve all come back and said how much they love it too! It really is a women’s secret weapon when it comes to skincare!

If you fancy winning yourself a tube of the magic that is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ anti-blemish cream, make sure you follow my blog by either GFG or bloglovin, or both, and just leave a comment below with your name and email address (and maybe a little message too) and I’ll randomly select a winner on Sunday! Ps. This is actually my first little giveaway on my blog, ever! Eeep!

Hopefully this is a little something that has cheered your Monday up! xo


  1. I love La Roche's products. My favorites are the sunblocks. I really would love to try this product to help me with my oiliness and pores.

  2. I've never actually tried the Effeclar Duo, and suffering from breakouts that sound similar to yours, I've always wanted to try it! The only La Roche Posay products I've tried is the Serozinc and I LOVE IT! Lovely post, chick!

  4. Born and raised in France, I swear by La Roche Posay! I don't have ache prone skin, so I never really looked at the Effaclar range, but I do have those bumps on my arms so that'd be a great addition to my skin care routine!

    Oh, and here is my email address contact (at) elle-yeah (dot) com. Thank you!
