Both products from this skincare range impressed me and if you have oily or blemish-prone skin they will impress you as well.
The cleanser, La Roche-Posay® Effaclar Foaming Gel comes in a generous 200ml tube. The packaging is simple, giving the product a 'dermatological' feel, while the blue and white colour scheme has a fresh and cooling vibe.
From the second week of use on, my skin settled down and I noticed I did not suffer from the hormonal breakouts around my jawline and chin that I would normally have.
My only complaint about this product is that it does not seem to be particularly nourishing as my skin doesn't look as plump as it normally does. It is a minor complaint given all the positives about this product and it is possibly due to my skin type being combination rather than oily skin type the product is designed for.
However, I'm thrilled with this little miracle in a tube and have continued to use it as a topical moisturiser on my problem areas in conjunction with my regular moisturiser. I can't recommend the La Roche-Posay® Effaclar Duo Plus enough!
La Roche-Posay® Effaclar Duo delivers much for an affordable price point. La Roche-Posay® Effaclar Foaming Gel has a RRP of $27.99 and La Roche-Posay® Effaclar Duo Plus has a RRP of $32.99, available in selected NZ pharmacies.
