La Roche Posay – Introducing it to my skin

For quite some time I have been noticing La Roche Posay being mentioned by a lot of other bloggers as part of their skincare routine. There have been a lot of great reviews about this brand and I thought I would give it a go. Off I went to Boots after finishing work and browsed the shelves for the lovely blue and white packaging.

I picked up 2 products; The Astringent lotion and the Effaclar Duo. The first product aims to tighten and block pores and the Effaclar corrects the appearance of imperfections, unclogs blocked pores and fights against marks.


I am only a few days in of using them as part of my skincare routine so I am just seeing how it goes at the moment. My skin does feel smoother and since I have been using it, I haven’t noticed any more spots appearing which is fabulous. I do feel like the skin around my spots has tightened as well and looks healthier. I am not expecting miracles and do not expect my skin to clear up in a matter of days but I will be doing a follow post in about a week to talk about how my skin looks and feels.

Have you tried any other products for spot prone skin that have worked?
