Favourite product ever - 19-05-2018 by

This is incredible. The way it clears up my skin and makes it so soft and smooth is unreal. This was the first La Roche-Posay product I ever used and wow it is actually incredible. I always recommend this to all of my friends

It has a weird smell - 13-05-2018 by

This one smells a bit funny though its not so bad i would stop using it. Its very light on the skin and doesnt irritate or clog my skin which is what i like. Would more than likely try something new next though but i love la-roche posay so far.

You need this - 08-05-2018 by

The reviews are not wrong! If you have oily/combo skin like me, you need to purchase this. It really does what it says. I will forever be a customer

Best pimple cream/treatment - 08-05-2018 by

I have gone through 5 tubes of this over the years. It is so gentle yet so effective at preventing and treating pimples/ break outs. It doesn't dry the area the same way benzoyl peroxide and other pimple creams do. The ingredients are really nourishing too. Also the brand is catered towards sensitive skin. This is a must try

Excellent Product - 19-02-2018 by

I have hormonal acne on my forehead, rosacea on my cheeks.I have very sensitive skin and this product has been a god send!!!! It keeps my face clear and gave me back my confidence. I am 48, soon to be 49 and never had acne until the last couple of years due to peri-menopuase. My dermatologist recommeded this product, It cleared up my acne bumps leaving a clear forehead and cheeks. Make sure you use a good hydrating moisturiser or serum with it so it doesn’t dry your skin. Just brilliant!!!

Really Good! - 19-12-2017 by

I really enjoy this product. I like how it's in a tube and it's easy to squeeze out product, maybe it's a bit too easy! I use this inconjunction with the facial cleasner and it has done wonders for my skin! I can't wait to see further improvements as the months progress.

Must have moisturiser - 19-12-2017 by

I have used this for a few weeks now and my skin has improved quite a bit in just a short time. I have large pores, blackheads, acne scars and sun spots and this moisturiser is a real game changer!
It feels and smells great and I use it twice a day to hydrate my skin. Can't wait to see what results I have in a few more weeks!

Amazing lightweight moisturiser for congested & sensitive skin - 19-11-2017 by

I really love this moisturiser, it has a lightweight formula, leaves skin hydrated and has beneficial ingredients that clears up clogged pores, hyperpigmentation and so forth without being too harsh and irritating on the skin.

It actually works! - 12-08-2017 by

I'm 36 years old. At 28 I had two rounds of Roaccutane - a last resort after years of trying every topical treatment on the market. And my skin finally cleared up. Until one summery weekend when I was 34 and suddenly I was getting breakouts again. Devastating! Anyway, because I was a big doubter of anything over the counter and topical, I then went on to antibiotics. Which worked well as they are anti-inflammatories but they started to upset my digestive system after a year and docs orders were to stop. Anyway. A dermatologist advised I use Effaclar while I decide whether I want to try Roaccutane or not (I don't). I actually didn't bother with Effaclar for a couple of months because I didn't think it'd make a difference at all, plus my skin is very sensitive so most creams and potions upset it. So it sat untouched in my bathroom cabinet for weeks! Eventually out of desperation I slathered it on one night and the next morning my skin looked much calmer - spot size reduced and much less swollen and red. Couldnt believe my eyes; i was doubtful that Effaclar was responsible but I persevered with it and now, a couple of months later, my skin is almost completely clear. This is the only review I've ever written about any product - because it really is very good indeed. Can't recommend it enough!

No longer Pimple Mc PimpleFace. - 11-04-2017 by

My skin is an oily, angry, splotchy nightmare, but this stuff makes it less 'stuff of nightmares' and more 'fit for public consumption'. Ya know, my makeup stays on past 10am now, yay! Don't get me wrong, my skin is not PERFECT but it is better than before.
I know this because I stopped using it for a month and my skin slipped back into it's old ways.
I've had mild cystic acne and blackheads galore since I was a teenager - mostly on my cheeks and chin/neck area (which has left me with many many scars and huge pores). I'm turning 30 this year and while I thought in my 20s my blemishes would diminish with age and wisdom - like so many other assumptions about life, I was mistaken.
I started looking into 'serums' after spending the fortune of a small African nation on other products. Because this is pretty much cheap as chips compared to the other voodoo potions on the market, I picked up the Duo Plus and used it under my hydrating moisturizer.
Wrong. It was too much 'hydration' and my face turned into a swimming pool.
So I chucked out the hydrating moisturizer and just Serozinc my face and smoosh this on and I'm good to go.
Jks, I still need to ware makeup for work. However:
Oiliness - BP is no longer trying to set up a rig on my face, Redness - reduced, blackheads - smaller, cystic acne - calmed. WOOHOO!
Also can not recommend enough the Aspect Dr Deep Clean Facial Cleanser.. but that is an epic review for another day.

Great product - 26-11-2016 by

I'm a big fan of french skincare and this product didn't disappoint (and I had high expectations after reading so many positive reviews). I've used this as a moisturiser (and also use the cleanser) for months and will continue to do so. Hydrating, doesn't make me oily, my break outs cleared up completely (though this can't be solely attributed to this as i have a very thorough routine). Since I've cleared up my break outs I thought I'd try a richer, antioxidant, anti ageing, 'medical' brand moisturiser but I find this very rich so I'll go back to the effaclar for daytime. Potentially not hydrating enough for dryer skin types. I was also pleased to hear this product is very highly regarded by dermatologists!

Not as convincing as I'd hoped - 06-06-2016 by

As I read many good reviews I was very excited to try this product. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now (with the starter kit) and unfortunately had another break-out since then.
I do have to say my acne really comes from my hormones so not much a cream can do against it, and I do feel that my cheeks have cleared up a bit.
Decided to try it a bit longer so who knows, it might still improve.

Great for reducing redness in face and acne - 03-06-2016 by

this is great i use it in the mornings after i wash my face and has certainly reduced my acne and redness , although this product doesnt prevent acne it certainly helps get rid of it

A game changer in my skin care routine - 16-04-2016 by

I have always suffered acne problems. My skin was incredibly prone to acne and it tends to take very long time to heal. I used a variety of products before but always had negative reactions to it or experienced no change. My skin broke out more and got even dryer because of the anti-acne ingredients in those products. So one of my friend, who is an avid user of La Roche Posay, recommended this. She has very sensitive skin and their products work amazingly well for her. So I decided to pick up this product and expected it would work after a few days but man, I could totally see the difference after one day of using.

The healing time is faster, the blemish was less red and my skin tone changed as well. I use this both day and night. Before make up, this product almost works like a primer to me. It matifies my skin, evens out my complexion, removes any redness and leaves my skin a fairer look. The product really lives up to its hype.

Great product - 07-10-2015 by

I received a sample of this with an order and when I saw how well it worked overnight, I knew I had to buy the full size. I have combination/acne prone skin and I have tried many products over the years but this is one of the best and the results are fast. So many spot treatments sting or dry out the skin but this one is lightweight and nourishing. I notice even more of a difference applying it after Dermalogica's Skin Refining Masque. It declogs and refines pores and fades blemishes really well.

Ahhh mazing!! - 15-11-2014 by

I am 33 and over the past year my skin has decided that I am a teenager again. I have always used quality skin care, but nothing was helping. I decided that it was time to start researching. Adore reviewers convinced me that Effaclar Duo Plus was worth trying...and boy were they right!! Within 24 hours my spots had started to go away and within 3-4 days they were all cleared up. I am a complete convert and am so blessed to have found Adore and this ahhhhh..mazing product!

A MUST have skincare product! - 16-09-2014 by

I had been struggling with bad skin (breakouts + dark spots) for about a year. I tried so many products and serums and nothing seemed to work - Not even a little. My sister recommended this product to help with the dark spots after a bad break out. I started using the product morning and night and noticed a difference within a few days. I was stunned by the fact that not only did my dark spots begin to fade, but my breakouts have nearly come to a complete end! Actually a bonus as I didn't buy it for that reason. And this product has really helped reduce the redness caused by breakouts. I have been using it for a couple of months now and am honestly in LOVE! I highly recommend giving it a go, I have finally found my most love product!

Didn't work for me - 15-09-2014 by

I'd heard a lot of good things about this product, so I was excited to try it for myself. I have mild acne, but it is fairly stubborn and I have a bit of scarring. Unfortunately, it broke me out. I have since realised I'm sensitive to dimethicone (an ingredient in the product) and it causes me to break out. I was still recommend trying this product because it has a nice texture and applies easily, and is pretty cheap in comparison to other products. I also love that it incorporates niacinamide, as well as some other effective ingredients. It wont dry out your skin like many other acne products on the market.

La Roche Posay - Corrective and Unclogging care cream - 03-08-2014 by

Love La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo - it's nice and light, and feels soft on your skin. I find it brings out my blemishes to the surface so they clear quicker. Effaclar Duo doesn't dry my skin out like other acne/blemish creams can. I've used it everyday so far and will definitely buy more when I run out. Really enjoying trying out products from La Roche-Posay!

Acne Prone Skin Must-Have! - 27-06-2014 by

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo.. wow. Just wow! It clears up pimples faster than anything, and doesn't dry up your skin in the process. I use this morning and night before applying my moisturiser. It sinks into the skin immediately, and it's very lightweight so you can wear your regular makeup over top.

I have very acne prone skin and have always constantly had massive breakouts.

Definitely want to try more from the La Roche-Posay range after trying this!

Cream of the crop! - 11-06-2014 by

Best acne treatment, ever. EVER.

I used to have really problematic skin but now my skin has cleared up (mostly) and has become dry and sensitive, which means that most treatments wont work for me.

...well except this. This is holy grail, "by jove I've found it!" kinda stuff. It's a spot treatment that you can wear under your moisturiser, and it's also flawless under makeup (no weird thick sticky residue to be found here).

Best yet, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin AND it works. It is very lightly fragranced but nothing that offends my nose, and the smell disappears after a few seconds anyway.

Honestly this manages to zap zits overnight like I've never seen before. One tube will last FOREVERRRR so I whole-heartedly recommend this!

Helps heal breakouts! - 28-05-2014 by

I found that since using this product under my moisturiser on my T-zone that my break-outs there have cleared a lot faster. I still get them but they're gone from my face a lot quicker. I think it helps a little with unclogging the pores as well, but I don't think you could rely on it to do it completely on its own.
