La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

La Roche-Posay are one of the latest French skincare companies that are circling the beauty blogging community right now. I would even say, if i dare, that they are close to taking over Bioderma, if not already there, in the popularity stakes. What with a large range of skincare products specifically targeted at sensitive skin, their own micellar solution and the added benefit of being easily accessible in most Boots stores, it's pretty hard not to stray .

La Roche-Posay who are owned by Loreal, have very swiftly entered the skincare market as of late. They are 'recommended by over 25,000 dermatologists,' specialize in sensitive skin and their products are formulated with their own thermal spring water, to name just a few positives. As well as their expanding skincare range, they also sell sun protection, makeup and hair products.

The Effaclar Duo in particular has become increasingly popular of late, I specifically became drawn to this product after seeing it in many of Tanya Burr's videos, you can check out her blog hereand I soon began to notice it appearing in many other beauty bloggers video's and blog post's too. 

What drew me to this product the most, was that people were suggesting that this product was helping with troublesome spots. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and am constantly trying out different treatments, this means that my hormones are pretty out of hand, which of course also means spots, and plenty of them, so any possible help and I'm there.

I had considered this product for a while but decided to try and stick to the products I was using, and eating better to help me. Then around two weeks ago, I caved, I know, of course I did, I have no will power, absolutely zilch, but this was one of those good caves, does that even exist? I shouldn't have spent the money, I am supposed to be saving up, but I'm so glad I did, because it really is amazing. 






After two weeks of using this product, with the odd day missed, I can honestly say that this product has truly helped to clear my skin, I wish I'd have taken pictures, note taken. The redness in my skin is already visibly reduced, I have a lot less spots and the spots that are still present, stubborn gits, are a lot less aggravated and painful. I did notice that on the few days that I forgot to apply this product, my spots quickly started to suffer, and a few new ones appeared, so i guess I'll be spending a lot more money on this product, to help keep them at bay.

If you want to know how I choose to use this product on my skin, keep your eyes out for my next blog post on my current skincare routine.

Have you tried this product or any other products by La Roche-Posay?
