La Roche-Possay's Effaclar Duo is a formula created to reduce the effects of acne by unclogging blocked pores. After reading extensive reviews in the beauty world with positive product feedback, we had rather high expectations that this treatment would solve our skin dilemmas, and would be the miracle product that we have been searching for!
This product is rather inexpensive at £13.00 for 40ml. The packaging is minimalist, and classic with a white base and blue detailing. The design feature of including a thin nozzle for product application means that using the product is quick, easy, precise and hygienic. It also has a great formula that dissolves into your skin immediately without feeling sticky, and doesn't have a strong fragrance.
Ingredients in this product include Niacinamide and Piroone Olamine, which reduce localalised imperfections and prevent future breakouts by purifying the skin. Lincoleic Acid also aids in unclogging pores, with thermal spring water preventing irritation.
Our Results: My sister and I have trialled this product for months now, and we are sad to say that it has not worked for us. At all. In fact, we found that the treatment caused further long-lasting breakouts and pimples. After using the product daily for five months now, it is safe to say that this product is not for us, and our mild acne has only been made worse. This product is not for us; however it may be that miracle product for people who have small blemishes rather than a mild form of acne.
If you have used this product then we would love you to share your results and how you found the experience with us in the comments area below :)
