Value for Money:

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo[+] cares for oily- and acne-prone skin or skin with imperfections. The reformulated cream combines four dermatological active ingredients that work to target the two signs of acne-prone skin including severe imperfections and blocked pores. It contains active procerad, a patented ceramide that corrects marks associated with acne and prevents the formation of others. The cream also contains linoleic acid and lipo-hydroxy acid to exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells. Niacinamide and piroctone olamine in the formula help stop the breakout from worsening and assist in purifying the bacterial source.

My Experience


One of the amazing things I find in this product is its hydrating quality. Usually moisturizers made to target acne-prone skin do not have much of a hydrating effect. But a small amount of this product takes care of all the isolated dry patches that my skin sometimes suffers from using too much powder. I have been using this product for the past few weeks now and it has visibly improved my skin. My pores look smaller in size and my skin looks clearer as well as so much smoother. Although its effect was noticeable from the very beginning, in these past few weeks, the clarity of my skin has improved a lot too. And the best part is that not only me but other people around me are noticing and complimenting my skin too! It also has a slight effect in controlling new acne from forming. However in case of existing acne, I feel that it did not have much effect in clearing it up.
