La Roche-Posay have reformulated an old favourite of mine... I have to say I wasn't all too convinced that Effaclar Duo could be improved, but it certainly has been.
Effaclar Duo+* has all the same spot-fighting power of its predecessor, but now has the added action of removing the stubborn marks left behind by those bothersome breakouts.
I don't know about you but I feel post-breakout hyperpigmentation can be worse than the spot itself, especially as it sticks around for months and months, and serves as a horrible reminder of that weekend you binged on chocolate bourbons... not speaking from personal experience here, obviously.
I've been so impressed with the new formula; it works just as well at stopping active breakouts in their tracks as the original. I have to say I am realistic in my expectations of products... nothing is going to zap a spot and its pigmentation away overnight, but do think Duo+ works well in gradually reducing the inflammation and scarring left behind from spots.
Effaclar Duo+ is priced at £15.50 and available at Escentual.com.
