La Roche Posay Effaclar K

Wednesday, 11 July 2012

This is the first product I've tried from the La Roche Posay range, which is a French skincare brand. On their website, they provide heaps of information catered to each skin type which is great. I opted to try the Effaclar range which is designed for oily skin with imperfections which pretty much describes my skin to a tee. I have dry patches around my nose, but everywhere else is oily and I have red marks on my chin left over from cystic acne, as well as having at least 1-2 constant blemishes. Nightmare skin, really!

I bought the Effaclar K from Boots when it was on a 3 for 2 offer, and it cost £13. It's marketed as a "daily renewal fluid" and is essentially a micro-exfoliant. It's paraben-free and non-comedogenic. As you can see from the photo, I've used a fair bit of this already. I think I've had it just over a month, and I use it both in the morning and at night - in between toning and moisturising. It sinks in to my skin really quickly and leaves it feeling soft. My only problem with using the product is the smell. It smells very medicinal and clinical. LRP also state that it makes a great make-up base, which I agree with as it does make foundation application a lot smoother.

I've seen an improvement in the skin on my cheeks, which suffer from redness, and the overall texture of my skin has improved. It's a lot smoother, softer and more even. However, I haven't seen any improvement in my pores or blemishes, although it does claim that "imperfections are erased, and the pores are tightened and unclogged". I'm still going to continue to use this as I love the effect it has on my skin's overall texture, and I really want to try and incorporate more of the La Roche Posay range into my skincare routine.

Have you tried any of the La Roche Posay products? What did you think?


  1. Great tips specially to those want a perfect and beautiful inside and outside looks. But one way to maintain healthy skin is to avoid tanning salons. Indoor tanning salons claim that their method of tanning, by artificial sun, is safer than natural tanning because they mainly use UVA rays and limit the exposure with timers.

    1. Yes, I agree! I'm a pale girl, no tanning salons for me. xx
