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.
