La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Review (Before & After Pics)


I have been plagued with continuous breakouts and it was driving me me mad because i couldn't work out why my skin was so bad. So, i was in Boots a couple of months back and saw they had an offer on the La Roche Posay range and purchased the Effaclar Duo.

La Roche Posay has almost become a cult product amongst bloggers, so i was very keen on seeing if it worked and if it could live up to my expectations. Well, lets just say it exceeded it!


La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo not only unclogs and purifies the pores from future breakouts but it significantly reduces the size of existing blemishes and gets rid of dead skin cells, leaving a more clearer complexion.

The Effaclar Duo is a light gel formula, that can be used day and night or when your skin feels like it's going to breakout. However, i just used the product at night. It is a watery consistency, so i would recommend letting it absorb into the skin before you apply any sort of makeup.


This has been a miracle worker for me and i absolutely love it! I am trying not to use it continuously because my skin doesn't need it and it does dry out my skin a bit. I only use this on my blemished areas or where i can feel a spot coming through. Once my skin looks like it's calming down, i then return to my normal night routine.

Below you can see a before or after picture. The results were after about a week of using the product and i wasn't using it every night! 


Overall, this is a fantastic product. A few other people i know, who have been using it, have noticed a difference in their skin. It is a bit expensive for a drugstore product, however the job that it does kinda justifies that! I will certainly be putting this on my repurchase this!

Have any of you used this?

    1. I use it under my moisturizer, as it isn't hydrating enough. xx

  3. Oh man....I feel your pain with those breakouts....and thanks for posting a BS-free, non-Photoshopped photo of what your skin really looked like with the breakout. Many bloggers won't do that. Might have to give this brand a try. It's a serum I assume, yes? Is it free of silicones, mineral oil & petroleum byproducts? Thanks once again for the review :-)

    1. Forgot to say, it would be really helpful if you could post a photo of the ingredients listed on the boxes of all the products you review :-) This is always a major consideration for me before purchasing any product.

    2. Thank you! This is the only way to show you guys whether or not a product works. Yes, i guess it is like a serum as i use it under my moisturizer. Not sure if i still have the box, but can pop into the drugstore and take a picture. Will email it to you? x
