Hey! Apologies, this post was supposed to go up yesterday but I've been visiting my grandparents and forgot to schedule it! Anyhow I'm taking part in a new series called #Haveyoudiscovered hosted by Becka - full details here if you want to join too! I won't be doing all of the week's themes, but I'll be sure to title them appropriately when I do!
This week is all about skincare, and what perfect timing as I've been wanting to talk about my new skincare routine since I overhauled it a fair bit at the start of this year. After trying out a few different things, I settled on the brand which did my skin the most good: La Roche Posay.
It started off with me trying to find the coveted Effaclar Duo but it was out of stock in my local Boots, so I opted to try some of their other, lesser talked about, products: namely their Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector along with one of their cleansers. I decided on the Physiological Cleasing Gel instead of the one from the Effaclar range as I've discovered non-foaming products aggravate my skin a lot less.
I've been using both of these for about 2 and a half months now, and repurchased both because I love them so much. Since starting using La Roche Posay, it has done wonders for my skin. Any blemishes were cleared right up within a few weeks, and since then breakouts have been kept to an absolute minimum (and usually only hormonal).
After the success of these, I certainly didn't hesitate to pick up the new formulated Effaclar Duo+, which bloggers have on the whole been loving (with good reason). While the Effaclar A.I. helps clear up 'active' spots, the Effaclar Duo+ is really good at diminishing the redness and marks that occur post-breakout.
Put it this way, I am now a lot more comfortable leaving the house sans-makeup. My skin is by no means perfect, but it's in such better condition, and I guess I have the French to thank!
