La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo[+] Review, Price, How To Use


La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo[+] Review, Price, How To Use

Hey all!

In all my teen-age days, my skincare was mostly fighting against pimples and acnes. I did have very oily skin back then. Then excessive usage of drying gel based facewashes, face masks and skipping moisturizers gradually turned my oily skin more into combination type.

Now I do not get regular pimples any more. But in the initial days of summer this year, my old acne issue somehow got triggered again. Nothing seemed to work to get my skin back to normal. Finally I decided to try out something new and got this very famous La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+]. This is the successor of their earlier Effaclar Duo with one added feature of removing acne marks. This cream was also featured before in my monthly favorite list. So it is no more a secret that it has helped me a lot to get rid of acne problems. But I did have issues with it and I had to find ways to make it work for me. Read on to know how…

Price: INR 1350 for 40 ml

What I Say:

Let’s start with the packaging. The white-blue tube is quite sturdy and nozzle opening makes it easier to use. Even though the cream is loaded with chemicals, good thing is that it is free from paraben. It has mild pleasant smell to it.

The texture is like somewhere in the middle of gel and cream. Initially I started using it all over my cleansed and toned face. It started showing effect on my active acne real fast. Within couple of days I could see them shrinking in size and healing faster without leaving ugly marks.

But at the same time, it made the dry patches I have around my lips and sides of nose horribly drier. Then I started using it as a spot treatment. I applied this cream only on acne prone areas and for rest of the face I used my regular moisturizer. It worked the best for me this way. Within a month of time, it resolved my acne issue and brought my skin back to happy phase. Now I don’t need to use it anymore.

Final Word:

This is the ultimate solution to acne and pimples! You just have to use it in the right way. If you have oily skin, you may skip your moisturizer. But others should not replace regular moisturizer completely with this one. Either use it as a spot treatment or on top of your favorite moisturizer!
