HOw Effaclar Duo Plus changed my Life

Effaclar Duo plus is a product from larocheposay part of the L’oreal family.
Since I got my first item to review from escentual which was a tube of effaclar duo plus, my skin has never remained the same.

Yes, I get outbreaks of acne once in a while when I slip up on regimen or start testing a new product.
My skin has not been this good since I was using mary kay timewise and acne gel in college (pray ask me why I stopped )

I no longer have breakouts that last for weeks then turn into blackheads and scars.
The right side of my face which I sleep on every night is losing the dark marks from previous acne slowly.

My T zone is brighter.
For something that costs about N4500 Nigerian Naira, you best be certain it is worth every penny.

This is a multi tasking product and serves as an excellent base for makeup.
Please dump silicon primers.
After a wedding outing when a silicon primer was used on me, I had 3 large breakouts in exact same region of application.
I’m sorry but that primer showed me shege.
Silicon doesn’t allow skin breathe.

I’m all for allowing skin breathe and having good skin.
It is a continuous fight against acne and surely we will win but in that fight, effaclar duo plus keeps you on the frontline winning day by day.

Effaclar duo plus is available at skinplus calabar. For other la roche posay products please check the shop list for instructions and contact at skinplus calabar.
