La Roche Effaclar K (+)

La Roche-Posay is a brand I have never come across before. It certainly looks a lot more clinical than regular beauty brands and gives you an inkling that it’s been conceived by expert dermatologists.

This is an anti-blemish cream that’s been specifically formulated to target the key signs of oily and blemish-prone skin. Over the past few months, my skin has been breaking out and generally feels more oily to the touch. I thought that this cream certainly sounded like the solution to the problem.

The product came in 40ml which is quite a substantial amount for how little you need to use. The cream is quite hydrating so about a 5p sized amount was enough. However I like the cream to soak into the skin as soon as possible so perhaps I used too little but that’s just my preference.

The cream has been tested on sensitive skin and I can certainly say this is suitable as there was no reaction on my own skin.

As you can see from above, the cream is light and I’ve been applying this in the morning before I apply my make-up. It is recommended to use this both in the morning and in the evening, however I needed a thicker cream as a night treatment. The cream is mildly scented which I love and it can be used with other La Roche Posay products or on it’s own.

After a week or so of using this product, my skin looks so much better and the breakouts are less frequent. It’s also been reviewed positively on the Feel Unique website and some mention that it’s made the appearance of their acne less prominent.

The cream is £15.50 and will probably last you a few months. I think the value is quite reasonable seeing as most good moisturisers start from around £10-£12.
