Most of the time, before buying a new product I like to do my research (unless of course it happens to be an impulse buy). With this product of course it was no exception and if you are a frequent reader of beauty blogs then I’m sure you’ve probably came across this product before. If however you have not, then let me tell you a bit about my experience with it.
After reading several positive reviews about this product and hearing some go as far as to say they saw results after just one day, I knew I had to finally try it for myself.
I would descibe the cream as more of a serum. You only need to apply around a pea sized amount and a small amout seems to go a long way. It soaks into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave any residue on the skin afterwards. I like to apply my regular morning/night facial moisturiser after applying the Effaclar Duo.
The cream claims to reduce blemishes and marks and I am happy to say that it does live up to those claims. After using the cream morning and night for just a week, I was able to see results. I have since been using the cream for the past couple of months and I am really pleased with the results.
Below are the before and after pictures of both the right and left side of my face after around 3 weeks of uing the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo cream.
On first glance you may not be able to see any major differences between each of the images but if you look closer at each blemish on the above images marked ‘before’ and compare each one on the image below, I think you can tell that each blemish has actually faded.
I feel like the blemish reduction on the left side has been more significant. Lets be honest, everything looks far worse close up as you get to see the skin in so much detail but I can massively see an improvement to the fading of the dark spot under my left eye and also to the scar to the left side of my nose (right side on the image).
I’m really impressed with the Effeclar Duo cream. Since using it, I’ve seen a significant reduce to the blemishes on my skin and overall it has reduced any patches of redness on my face too. It has definitely been a wonder cream for me, which I will continue to use and most likely repurchase, so I give the product a big thumbs up.
