La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ – £13.55
I know I’m a bit late to the party in reviewing this, but I bought La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ when it was first released, shortly after finishing up a sample size of the original Effaclar Duo, which I had loved. This instantly made my skin look so much better, and this combined with Liz Earle’s Hot Cloth Cleanser made sure I only had ONE spot in a month! That had never happened before! The marks left on my face from spots also went down rapidly, and I was surprised I was able to shift blemishes that had been on face for as long as I could remember. This also seemed to me like it was slowly but surely getting rid of my blackheads, which I absolutely hate and nothing else had ever seemed to shift them. It certainly does what it says on the tube, and it didn’t break me out once. However, I think it did make my skin drier in parts, so I did stop using it for a while just in case it was down to this. Overall I think this is a great skincare staple to have if you’re prone to spots and blemishes, as it really can help!
