My Experience

I have been watching lot of skin care videos on youtube. Youtuber from India as well outside of india had been raving about this product so i finally gave in and bought this online. I have already used a toner from La Roche Posay and it was the only one toner that didnt break me out. Coming back to La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Acne Treatment Cream. I always thought this must be an acne treatment and will not my suit my skin. My skin is a combination skin and it does have one or two eruptions whenever weather changes or after a flight travel and mostly importantly during those time of month. But recently i noticed that frequency had increased and i ended up having lot of dark spots on my face. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Acne Treatment Cream came to rescue. Its gel based cream in squeeze tube which is very travel friendly, hygienic and sturdy.

It has a been over a month, i have been using it. Now since then there is no single acne on my skin. If in case there is small bump on my face it goes off overnight. And i am not exaggerating 🙂 Its non- greasy texture makes skin look fresh and hydrated. It is a very good base to be applied before makeup too. My skin has improved quite allot since i have started using it. I see visible difference in complexion. No i am not saying i have become fair 😛 i am saying my skin has become more even toned and dark spots are fading away.

So to summarize

  • Stands by its claim. Not a single acne since i started applying it
  • Package is simple yet travel friendly and classy
  • Very hydrating
  • Reasonably priced
  • Effective in fading dark spots
  • Evens out skin

This product has become must have for me. I am literally carrying it everywhere i go 🙂

I would recommend this to anybody who has acne prone skin and do let me know how you find it in comments below.
