La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+)

February 18, 2014
I don't think you could have missed the hype around the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. It was raved about on every blog and YouTube channel and became a must-have for great skin. I gave the product a whirl and it was going well until one night my skin had a funny reaction to it and went red and irritated (full review here). 

It didn't put me off trying the new offering from La Roche Posay with their Effaclar Duo (+) - or plus. The key difference between this and the original is that this enhanced versions works to help spots and acne, while also caring for the affected areas after the spot has gone and reducing the redness and marks that are left. My skin is terrible after I've had a spot and it takes months and months to fade so this is perfect for helping with this.

You apply it in exactly the same way (a thin layer over your skin each night) but this works harder for you as a product. I haven't had a reaction from this yet so wonder if the reaction to the Effaclar Duo was a blip- and it has really helped with my red marks and overall skin appearance. I neglected to use it this week as I've been so busy and I can tell a difference.

The Effaclar Duo (+) costs £11.62 from Boots and you can find out more on the La Roche Posay website.

  1. I've been trying this out too and it doesn't really seem to do anything for my skin! :(
