La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus Review

The original Effaclar Duo was one of my favourite finds for problem skin last year- I loved it for stopping blemishes in their tracks before they turned into nasty spots. Effaclar Duo is a hero product for thousands of women around the world with 3 being sold every minute and La Roche Posey have been on a mission to improve the iconic product even more. Effaclar Duo + has all the benefits of the original  but with the added ingredient of Procerad, which helps the skin rebuild it's surface preventing any future pigmentation or red marks. This added ingredient acts to sooth and diffuse inflammation of the blemish before it's even reached the surface of the skin. Effaclar duo + aims to unclog pores, reduce redness, scaring and pigmentation and significantly cut the time of blemish healing.

I've been using this product for the past week and even after the first use I felt like my skin looked a little clearer and my T-Zone less oily. Effaclar Duo can be used as a serum or a moisturiser as it provides the perfect matte base for make-up due to its melt in, light non sticky texture. I couldn't recommend the original product enough so the fact that it's been improved made me very happy. 

Effaclar Duo + is available in store and online at Boots.com at an introductory price of £11.62, normal price will be around £15.



  1. I like the sound of the new and updated version. I saw it on the Boots website last night but still have two tubes of the original left. I'll order this when I've used up the others.
