|La Roche-Posay / Effaclar Duo|
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is described as a dual action anti-perfection moisturiser for oily skin with irregular texture; containing niacinimide, piroctone, olamine, and LHA to help reduce skin imperfections and help prevent blocked pores and the development of future breakouts, leaving the skin looking clearer and smoother.
Personally I'd describe this as more of a serum than a moisturiser, the texture is thin and feels slightly tacky on the face while the smell is noticeably chemically, which is understandable considering the ingredients and the purpose of the product. I apply La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo mainly in the evenings after a full cleanse and applied with a light moisturiser over the top. Occasionally I'll apply it in the morning beneath make-up if I'm feeling concerned about the condition of my skin.
I don't suffer an oily complexion or enlarged pores, instead I use La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo to prevent and protect against breakouts. I find when I use this in combination with La Roche Posay A.I. any breakouts, blemishes, or cystic spots diminish and disappear far more rapidly. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo definitely helps repair the skin, reduce redness or irritations, and protect against developing breakouts.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo doesn't have quite such a dramatically noticeable effect as Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector but it's definitely a product worth investing in as a preventative measure against blocked pores and skin imperfections.
