I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Review: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

When I bought my La Roche-Posay moisturizer mentioned in the previous post, the saleslady was kind enough to give me two sample size tubes of La Roche-Posay's most famous product: the Effaclar Duo. I was actually really happy about that, since I had been wanting to try this product anyway, and believe me or not, two sample size tubes is actually enough to have an opinion about it, since this is definitely a product that goes a long way. The saleslady that gave these to me also mentioned that you can use them only as spot treatments if you want, which is what I have been doing, since my chin is my problem area, but the rest of my face has been problem free lately, so I have used the Toleriane Ultra for it, while I used the Effaclar Duo only on my chin.
The first thing I have to say about the Effaclar Duo is that it kind of stings. So it is not a pleasant cream to use, and I also did not see any immediate effects from it. Meaning it did not clear my skin or improve it a lot, but on the other hand, it did not make it worse either.

So I cannot say I saw any of the really positive effects I have been reading about, but I also did not see any drying out of the skin, any purging etc.
So while I am happy I got a chance to try the Effaclar Duo (which has a harmless, neutral scent, by the way, in case you were wondering), I don't think I would actually buy this product, since it seems like a product that has gotten a lot of hype, but it also seems like a product that just works for some people, and not for everyone.
I will say that I have tried some other La Roche-Posay Effaclar products, and those were awesome, however. So I definitely would not say that the whole range is inefficient or anything, it just seems this particular product was not for me.
