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!
