The Effaclar Range
I have already expressed my love for La roche posay’s efflaclar H. The ultimate anti-redness moisturiser, that actually works after the first use! But isn’t the only good product that is produced la roche posay. I have soon discovered that their entire effaclar range is amazing, particularly for those with acne prone or sensitive skin. Black friday sales made me crazy with this brand this year, my derma centre (which I will tell you now is an amazing retailer of la roche posay and vichy, particularly in the sales!) had a huge 40% off, and I spent barely anything and got lots and lots of different la roche posy products and samples. Of course I stocked up on two or three effaclar H’s.
One of the most popular products is effaclar duo +, which I had tried once and decided to buy a few samples of. I love this as a spot cream as it isn’t drying. Every cream I have ever been prescribed has dried my skin out completely making it red and sore. I don’t think that this product alone would completely heal acne, but for those with a few spots it will keep them at bay, without causing redness or dryness.
I also ended up purchasing their 3 step system from feelunique.com. I have stuck with this skincare routine since before christmas (and it still hasn’t ran out!). The face wash is excellent at removing all make up and dirt, it foams up nicely and definitely makes your face feel fresh. The clarifying lotion is also definitely one of the best ones I have ever used. Sometimes clarifying lotions can be harsh, I often say the clinique ones feel a little strong like your using nail varnish remover, which isn’t good for your delicate skin. This one is excellent in removing excess make up after washing and perfect before the application of moisturiser.
I personally use both the face wash and clarifying lotion morning and night and alternate by using the effaclar H in a morning (as a moisturiser before applying make-up) and effaclar duo at night as an overnight spot cream. I think one of the most amazing things about this range is its reduction in redness, everyday by skin looks fresher and much less red!
