La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + Review

So, the famous La Roche-Posay released an updated version of their cult Effaclar Duo at the beginning of the year and I was lucky enough to be sent a sample by the lovely people at I was really intrigued to use this new product as the original had been a staple in my skincare for a while however it had stopped working recently, I put it down to maybe my skin becoming too used to the product, or I was just getting a different type of blemish which was harder to budge. The new Effaclar Duo +* is basically a super charged version which has all the properties of the original but now it will help with those horrible red marks and scars left over when the spot is essentially gone.

I suffer with this problem hugely as I have very pale skin and the mark left when the blemish is gone is sometimes worse than the spot in the first place! I did find it helped with this a little, however I think because of all the hype around the product I was expecting something a little more 'super hero'. The new formula still wasn't as healing on my blemishes as it had been before but it did make a little difference. You can read my previous review of the original product here. Check out my previous post to find out what product I AM loving which is doing wonders for my skin.

I probably won't be buying this again any time soon, it's a shame that it's not working for me anymore as I really did love it to begin with!  Has this happened to you with this or any other product? Let me know what you thought! Or did you prefer the original? x
