La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Duo has become a hero product for anyone in the know that suffers with spots and the symptoms of acne. It has had the most incredible feedback and for many has been truly life changing.
The best news is that La Roche-Posay laboratories have been working very hard to take the success of Effaclar Duo to the next step and the result is Effaclar Duo [+] (plus).

This new product does everything that the original Effaclar Duo did but also deals with the scarring that spots leave behind.
Acne really is not just a teenage problem and 60% of women suffer with spots, blackheads & oily skin. When I suffered with spots (they have only really stopped plaguing me in the last 5 years) almost as bad as the spot itself was the scar it left behind. It seemed like even when the spot was gone, there was a whole new problem waiting to happen. And then the next spot(s) would come along anyway and everything just got worse. I’ve kind of forgotten how terrible it was – but I know it was truly terrible. I used to use sun lamps to try and bleach away the scars and still the spots would come and more scars would form. It felt hopeless.

Anyway…less of me and more on La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] (why wasn’t it there when I needed it?!).
Effaclar Duo [+] contains something very special called PROCERAD which tackles the scarring element of acne. It works on inflammation and the over production of melanin that occurs when spots strike, to get rid of scars before they can become established.
Genius isn’t it? It fights the spot and ensures that it won’t leave its calling card behind. Trials have shown that after 24 hours even severe imperfections are visibly less red, from 8 days severe imperfections have disappeared, from 4 weeks pores are unclogged, skin texture is refined, shine and oily areas appear regulated.

What more could you want? Well….a nice light non-sticky texture, 24 hour hydration, a matte finish and a good base for makeup? All this is promised too. You can use it on it’s own over the whole face after cleansing or with moisturiser on top.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] (plus) is out now at Boots – RRP is £15.50 but it is currently on an intoductory offer for £11.62.
