La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3 step anti-blemish system

La Roche-Posay is a brand I have heard an awful lot about thanks to the number of blogs I read on a daily basis, but I’d never (up until now) used anything from them despite the glowing reviews. I was recently sent the Effaclar 3 step anti-blemish system to try out though and coudn’t wait to share my thoughts.
Now, I’ve always been very lucky with my skin and have never suffered with acne or anything really close. I am prone to breakouts on my chin and cheeks though especially when I am run down and stressed so I was keen to see if this could help. It’s a new and exclusive to the UK set consisting of three products; a face wash, a toner and a cream- hence the three steps. Targeting a whole range of skin problems from blemishes and blocked pores through to un-even skin texture and colour this makes the mighty claim of a visible difference in just 24 hours! You simply use all three products twice a day and wait for the miracle.
I wasn’t brave enough to put up before photos of my skin as I started using this at a time when I wasn’t feeling so fabulous about anything, but here is what my skin looked like, makeup free after four days of use. I know it’s hard to tell without anything to compare it to but this is the best my skin has looked and felt in months. I’d had several blemishes come up around my chin that just weren’t shifting and yet within a day of using the three products they had visibly reduced and within the four days they had pretty much gone.

I had been a bit concerned that the products would leave my skin feeling dry and tight, a problem I have had previously when using anti-blemish products but actually this wasn’t an issue at all and it didn’t irritate my super sensitive skin either. The set has an RRP of £32.95 which is excellent value I think as the products are fantastic quality with a dermatologist’s approach and you get around a 6-week supply in the set. I especially liked the face wash as it left my skin feeling super clean and fresh- perfect for first thing in the morning!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3 step anti-blemish system is available now in larger Boots stores and online. Let me know if you try this and what you think…also let me know what other products I need to try from the brand, I’m never going to be a stranger to it again!

  1. Must try this! I have awful acne prone skin! You look gorgeous xx

  2. I always hear raves about this brand too, but also have never tried anything. Your skin does look good & so glowy in the photos, and it’s interesting you say it doesnt give that tight, dry feeling either – I’ve never come across a blemish product that didn’t make my skin tight! Definitely will have to give this a go, my chin is awful at the moment!

  3. Your skin looks gorgeous here, I definitely need to give this a go!
