Following on with the updates it’s time to check-in and see how my skin has been progressing with the new La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+. Bit of a giveaway considering this is appearing on a ‘Super Saturday’ feature but if you hadn’t guessed it already, I kinda like it! This is a revamp and updated formulation on the much loved skincare hero Effaclar Duo that is targeted for those with oily and blemish prone skin. Aimed at unclogging pores and reducing the appearance of spots and blemishes the active ingredients help to calm down areas of redness and restore the skin to a state of balance and calm. Considering this is such a well known and loved product I don’t think many people expected a new formulation to come winging our way but to the shelves it hit and to our faces it was put.
The new Duo+ has all the same great skincare benefits of it’s older sister, however this comes packed with ingredients to help prevent the appearance of scars or dark areas on your skin once a blemish has gone away. This gives a more complete care to your skin and ensures that no telltale marks are left behind. Since using the new Duo+ I haven’t noticed too much of a difference which is good as I was worried my skin would have negative reaction. It gives the exact same great results as the original Duo but now I find any stubborn blemishes do not end up leaving a hash mark behind. One month on and this still gets a big thumbs up from me!
