La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel in India


A month back I went shopping to renew my stock of La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo and La Roche Posay Effaclar Astringent which were running dangerously low[I simply cannot live without the two, ok]. In the counter, I chanced a glance upon La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel and was tempted to give it a try. Honestly I wanted to buy all the La Roche Posay products I saw in the counter, but something[maybe sense] told me it would be stupid to do that, not to mention extremely unhealthy for my wallet.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel in India:

 
My Skin Type: oily, sensitive, acne-prone. Allergic to parabens.
Price: INR 690 for 125 ml
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, PEG 8, Coco Betaine, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, PEG 120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Zinc PCA, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Capryl Glycol, Parfum
Its paraben-free, soap-free and has a PH balance of  5.5
What The Company Claims: Effaclar Gel purifies oily and acne-prone skin without drying effects thanks to cleansing agents rigorously selected to insure good tolerance.  It eliminates impurities and excess sebum, leaving skin clear and refreshed.
With soothing la Roche-Posay thermal spring water -pH5.5/ Soap Free / Colorant Free / Alcohol Free / Paraben Free.
Texture and Fragrance: It is a color-less, gel face wash. The texture reminds me of cetaphil face wash. It has a very mild fresh fragrance.
My Experience:
My first impression of this product was bad. After using it for 4 days, I started breaking out along my hair-line. Not in small pimples either, I got 2-3 medium sized pimples[felt like adult acne]. I din’t know if it was because of this or some other product I was trying out.
So I stopped using La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel and all the other new products for a week and when my skin got back to normal and all the pimples had cleared out, I started using this face wash again, and this time I did not use any other new product because I wanted to solely test the effect of this face wash. For the first two days everything seemed fine, in fact I started liking it, because my face felt brighter after washing[maybe because it has citric acid in it]. But then disaster struck: On the third day, I noticed 2 huge pimples on my face – one near my hairline and one next to my nose. Not only that, my face felt really itchy and irritated the entire day. 
That was it, more than the pimples, the itchy irritation was what scared me the most. I stopped using it immediately and my face went back to normal the very next day! So yeah, something in this face wash did NOT suit me at all. It not only made me break out but also irritated my skin enough for it to start itching. So I can honestly say that this is NOT for sensitive skins.

Pros:
  • Face feels brighter after wash
  • Cleanses the face thoroughly
  • Paraben free
 
Cons:
  • It broke me out
  • Irritated my skin and made it feel itchy
  • Not for sensitive skin
 
Who would I recommend this product to: It did not suit me, but even then I could see that it was not a bad product.
If you have sensitive skin, then give this one a wide breadth! Its NOT for sensitive skin at all.
But if you have oily skin which is suffering from acne and which is not extremely sensitive, give this product a try, it definitely brightens the face and deep cleans it.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
I hope this helped,

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative
    to read?

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had
    a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!
