Beauty heroes deserve to be celebrated. One of our all time favourites is La Roche-Posay's Effaclar Duo + moisturiser.
Beauty heroes come in many shapes and sizes, from foundation to shampoo to mascara and everything in between. But when it comes to problematic, oily skin, one product, in particular, comes to mind. It's been a go-to here at Beaut HQ for years and has never let us down yet.
La Roche-Posay excels in affordable skin care that works. We love their micellar cleansing water, gentle eye makeup remover, cicaplast baum b5 and general no-fuss approach to beauty. But it's the Effaclar Duo + moisturiser (€17.50) that we're focusing on today.
This gel cream moisturiser might be lightweight in feel, but it's heavy weight in terms of results. The formula contains salicylic acid which works to unclog pores and reduce congestion. As well as that, it controls sebum and reduces marks from blemishes and spots for a more even complexion. Effaclar Duo + absorbs quickly and easily too, making it a great base for make-up during the day, or for quick application before bed.
As beauty heroes go, this is 100% one the best treatments we've found for oily and problematic skin, both on the high street and in the luxe market. So, if you're looking to downsize and spring clean your routine like us (or just spring clean your skin) this is a great option.
