La Roche Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System*
Sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind me how lucky I am. La Roche Posay is a brand that has always worked for me and when my skin starts looking bad I know I can always turn to them. So when I was offered the chance to try their new 3-step anti-blemish system (which includes their infamous effaclar duo+) I jumped at the chance.
First up we have Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser which is designed to reduce excess sebum and leaves skin feeling clean and fresh. I've said on here before I'm a fan of gel cleansers - even though most people hate them - and this is no exception for me. It's very fresh, it's not tight at all and my face felt really hydrated. My advice would be to lather it on already wet hands and apply on a wet face otherwise I felt it didn't quite foam as nicely.
Next up is the Effaclar Clarifying Toner. As someone with oily skin the best advice I can give you is to use a toner and this one is a beaut. It has a very light fragrance which doesn't linger and isn't too tight. I've found since using it my face looks a lot brighter.
Lastly we have the Effaclar Duo+. I've done a full review on this here so I won't bore you again with it but just note: it's my absolute holy grail.
Overall I think this is such great value for money. Usually with these "kits" the sizes are reduced however you get full sizes with these which are lasting really well. It also comes with information and a leaflet about how each product works so you can get the best out of them. I had become really lazy with my skin over the past few months and it was definitely showing so this was a god send! If you're thinking of a skin care-esq christmas gift, this is what you want.
Have you tried this set? What were your results?
