Review: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

I did it, I jumped on the bandwagon. With all the hype surrounding this product, I just couldn't help myself! As someone who struggles with blemish-prone problematic skin I had to see if this product really was the miracle product many bloggers claim it to be. 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo - £13.00 - can be found here

It claims to reduce the appearance of imperfections and unclog blocked pores after applying it morning and/or evening to the whole face. I've been using this over the past few weeks as a replacement to my normal moisturiser. I can't say I've noticed any remarkable changes after using this product. I have had less active breakouts (which is quite unknown - every nasty spot and his best friend has taken up residence on my face of late!) and I've gotta put that down to this. I also think that this product has helped calm any breakouts that I have had, but I just don't know whether it quite lives up the the hype. I am hopeful though, as my skin has definitely calmed down lately and I've had muuuch less breakouts.. and when I think about it, this is the only new thing that I've  introduced to my skin care routine. I'll update you in a few more weeks after more use!

Have you tried the effaclar duo? Has it lived up to the hype for you?
