La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ Review

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ is someting I've been using since December last year. I am almost finished with my tube and that is the reason behind my review.

If you are a regular reader of the blog you know my acne voes and how moisturizers and face creams seldom get acceptance by my skin. But this one is a sure winner and I'm super glad it worked!

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ is a multipurpose face cream - it helps unclog pores, works as an anti-imperfection cream, and gives your skin hydration without causing stickiness or greasiness. The cream comes in a tube form with a slim nozzle head. It has a screw top cap and is hence easy to carry around.

Price: Rs 1350 for 40ml [buy online La Roche Posay]

The cream is on the costlier side but one tube has lasted me almost 3 months of usage and I still have some left. I've used it regularly every morning and mostly at night too.

The texture of the cream is very smooth and light weight. Its a gel based formula which penetrates the skin quickly leaving behind a soft feel. I have had no break-out issues with this cream and when used regularly in conjunction with a gentle face scrub I noticed my pores reducing in size imparting a freshness to the skin. It has faded away a lot of old scars on my face and overall given a smoother appearance to my skin.

In the long use of over 2 months the pore size hasn't reduced dramatically but yes the pores are clear so that there are no visible blackheads or whiteheads. My skin generally feels happy with this cream and I have used it as a base for my daily makeup as well. Whenever I go back to using a face scrub in conjunction with this cream, I do notice the pores reducing in size!

It has also come in handy during this current weather where the seasons are changing and my skin has started getting patchy in some areas while producing oil in others. Dry areas become moisturized while oilier areas stay almost matte.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ has proven to be a great moisturizer and a good makeup base for me.  I think it would work generally for all skin types but is surely great for oily and combination skin-types.

If you have been on the hunt for a good moisturizer then I would highly recommend you try this out. I think its worth every penny!
