It's been three years now since I became immersed in the world of beauty blogging and, not by coincidence, it's also been three years since I started using the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo[+] serum as part of my evening routine. I've applied the stuff religiously ever since, consciously keeping an extra tube nearby should I ever run out unexpectedly.
Effaclar Duo has even earned a place within my recently stripped down, back-to-basics skincare routine. It's one of four products that make up my every day regime (the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, Estelle & Thild's Fragrance Free Moisturiser and the blessing that is coconut oil make up the rest). Having dry or blemish prone skin can be a curse even singly. Having them together is just plain bad luck. Effaclar Duo is the first and only treatment I've come across that manages to tackle both problems at once, actively keeping spots and pimples at bay without starving the skin of its natural oils in the process. It's a wonder product and one that I've continued to buy, use and adore long since the initial hype died down.
