Review | La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

7 Feb 2014

I feel a little silly reviewing this product now considering that the Effaclar Duo+ has now been released! But, as there are only a few differences between the Duo+ and the original Effaclar Duo I thought it was still relevant.

I've been using this product near enough every day for almost two months now and I love it. I've featured it both in my Love At First Use post and my January Favourites video, I love it that much! My skin has noticeably cleared up and is looking better than it has done for a long time now. I hardly ever get a blemish now, and when I do it goes much quicker than it used to. I feel like my skin looks much brighter and clearer now too!

Its a thin serum-like consistency that spreads really easily across the face and sinks in super quickly. I only use two small pea-sized pumps on each application so the tube has lasted me really well. Even with the fact that I use it morning and night! I do like the fact that the tube is small as its handy for travelling! But, I wish it was a pump applicator as I never feel like I can get all the product out and I hate to see wastage!

At £13.00 I think its really good value for money actually, as it'll last you so long! Boots always do really great offers too. It's definitely become a Holy Grail product for me, and I don't ever want to be parted from it!!

Have you tried the Effaclar Duo before?



  1. I've never tried this but heard so many great things about it! My skin scars for ages after I get a blemish, so I've been thinking about giving this a go. What is the difference between this and the Duo+?

    1. You really should try it, its done wonders for my skin! :) The Duo+ helps to remove the red marks and scars left behind after spots have been treated! So it may be best for you to try the Duo+ :) Xx
