At some point I even tried applying lemon juice to the scars to try and fade them but it never worked.
It has become a holy grail product of many acne suffering bloggers/people out there so I thought it was definitely worth a try.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus + doesn't just deal with the breakouts itself but it also helps correct the skins appearance and imperfections such as the acne scarring that occurs after the spots disappear.
It contains an ingredient called Procerad which helps to protect against the appearance of red and brown marks on the skin.
La Roche Posay laboratories say that after 24 hours 'imperfections look visibly less red, after 8 days imperfections appear slightly reduced and after 4 weeks the pores look unclogged and the skin texture looks refined'.
This product sounds like an absolute dream doesn't it?
Effaclar duo plus + is a lightweight gel-cream which doesn't feel sticky or oily on my face at all, it actually feels quite hydrating once applied which I love.
You can use it underneath your makeup if you liked but I prefer not to.
I have been using Effaclar duo plus + for the last two weeks and I have noticed a difference in my skin, my spots have been minimised and the inflammation is slowly disappearing.
After a few days of use though my skin broke out a bit but you have to persevere with it to get good results.
Everyones skin is different though, the product may work for me but it might not work for you.
Overall, I am so impressed with the Effaclar duo plus + and I will be making a repurchase of it once it has ran out.
La Roche Posay Effaclar duo plus is available online at Boots here at the introductory price of £11.62 but this ends 19/2/14 and they'll be charging the full prize of £15.50.
