La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Plus



Two words, one love; french pharmacy. Ever since I tried Caudalie as a teen i've been addicted to french pharmacy, bioderma, la roche-posay, the works. So when the lovely people at Escentual* dropped this little gem through my post box I was really excited.

The product claims to perform a micro-exfloliation which unclogs pores of blackheads, white heads, spots, dirt, oil build-up, pretty much all of the nasty stuff. I wanted to give this a solid test and have been trying it for around two months, because with most products like this it makes your skin more sensitive, or at least has a harsher effect over time. However, with this I didn't find that, and it's part of the reason this review took so long to come because I was almost waiting for that moment it was going to go bad, but fortunately it never did.

The results were gradual, I started noticing a difference after 2-3 weeks of use and my skin felt a lot softer. It's not changed my blackhead situation, but mine is pretty awful if I'm honest! It has definitely prevented oil build-up and been a super affordable moisturiser. The tube has that hard metal material and for me it makes it feel like i'm using an ultra luxurious item.

It's normally £14.90 but escentual has it reduced at £9.93 for the moment. Buy here.

  2. I have this myself I got it in a beauty box but wasn't really sure when to use it. Did you use it in place of a face cream? Gemma x

  6. Oh yeah, I too have an awful blackhead problem and I think the only way out is to have them professionally extracted. La Rouche Posay products are so much hyped, would love to try them and other French skincare bits.

  18. La Roche-Posay does make wonderful products. I've found with the more delicate creams the process really does take a little bit longer but I always wind up seeing results and I have a feeling that it's so much better for my skin.

  31. It's actually pretty incredible how many awesome French Apothecary brands there are! I am such a big fan of La Roche Posay's face wash, so I definitely need to give this product a go as well!

  32. I love French pharmacy products, even though they are ridiculously overpriced out of France! I've heard sooo many good things about effaclar k but unfortunately when I tried the US formulation it did nothing for my skin. Maybe now I will give the european formulation a try :) Thanks for sharing!

  36. I'm so in love with French Pharmacy products. They just nail it so so so much. I've tried roche posay products before, as well as caudalie, and they did wonders for me. I've never tried this one though. Sounds like something I'd enjoy though.
