La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo In India


There are only a few things in the world you would declare undying love for. For me La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo is one of them. It came into my life when I was battling acne on my chin and had no idea what was causing them. I used to get these really pesky pimples only on my chin, and I used to apply pimple creams on them but instead of drying those pimples, the pimple creams would dry the skin around the pimples and make the pimples worse, sometimes multiplying them. I couldn’t understand why. I mean, those same pimple creams worked fine when I applied them on any other pimple that would occasionally crop up on other parts of my face without causing any irritation. But why wouldn’t they work on my chin? Then, to get rid of the dry irritation, I would apply my normal moisturizer, but that seemed to multiply my pimples even more!

I was in confusion! All logic seemed to cease making sense when it came to the skin on my chin! And it got worse during that time of the month. I hated the left patch of my chin, where the pimples appeared the most. Then, 7 months back, I came across La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo[I call it the miracle cream] online on a blog. The cream claimed to be an anti-imperfection cream which unclogged pores and reduced the production of sebum at the same time moisturizing the skin. It had only positive reviews online and I knew I had to get it! Ever since then, there is no looking back, I am in love with it.


La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo In India:

My Skin Type: Oily, sensitive, acne prone. Allergic to parabens.


Price: INR 1190 for 40 ml tube


Availability: In Bangalore its available only at Health and Glow stores. But you can also buy it online from anywhere in India. Google to find out which websites sell them online.
Special Soothing Properties Of La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo: 
  • La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo is a Paraben-free formula
  • Contains Niacinamide and Piroctone Olamine which fight against bacterial proliferation and are known to eliminate imperfections
  • Contains LHA and Linoleic Acid which unclogs the pores while eliminating the accumulated dead cells responsible for blockage
  • These active ingredients are combined with soothing, anti-irritant La Roche-Posay thermal spring water to reduce redness
Texture and Formula: Its a light gel formula which spreads easily. Only a pea sized amount is enough to cover the entire face. It gets absorbed into the skin easily and it feels very light on the skin.
Smell: It has a very light soothing fragrance that I love. Its not over powering at all. In fact it feels relaxing.

My experience: As I said, I was battling with stubborn acne on my chin which worsened with the use of pimple creams and moisturizers. From the time I started using La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, I could see a reduction of acne and dryness on my chin. I could feel my skin healing. You know what I mean? And within 10 days of using this, my skin started looking better, it felt smoother and healthier. Within a month of using this, those confusing stubborn pimples on my chin vanished!
I have been using it ever since and I can see a difference. The biggest compliment I receive everyday is from my own reflection in the mirror which seems happier every time I look at it *touch wood**touch wood**touch wood*.
Do I still get pimples?  yes I do. When I am too lazy to wash my face at night or when I eat too much chocolate or during that time of the month, I still get 1 or 2 huge painful pimples. BUT, those really confusing random pimples have stopped. Now, I know the reason behind pimples when I get them.
How I use it: I apply a pea-sized amount of La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo at night time after I use the Effaclar astringent[review coming soon]. And sometimes on top of my pimple cream if there is a pimple. In mornings, I apply it beneath my sunscreen.
Do I recommend it? Hell yeah. If you are in your 20’s and have oily skin and are suddenly facing acne issues, and don’t know the reason behind it, then buy this miracle cream. I love it! This is my third tube already.
Don’t be confused, there are 2 DIFFERENT types of La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo’s in the market: 1 of them is La Roche Posay EFFACLAR DUO CORRECTIVE AND UNCLOGGING ANTI-IMPERFECTION CARE, which is the one I am talking about, which contains LHA’s. The other one is La Roche Posay Effaclar DUO DUAL ACTION ACNE TREATMENT, which contains 5% salicylic acid and which is purely for drying out the pimples and might seriously dry out your skin. They are not the same, so read the labels carefully before purchasing it.
