Treatments (Face) -La Roche-Posay -EFFACLAR Duo


HG product for me. I’ve been using this for my acne and as a day moisturizer since about 2014.

For me, it’s the perfect combination of just enough hydration for my oily skin without feeling heavy or clogging the skin, as well as absolutely fantastic for my form of acne. I have adult acne thats mostly mild but appears all over my face, all the time. I get the occasional cystic acne, but rarely. The effaclar duo helps with my acne, but also hyperpigmentation. My skin just looks so much more even and alive.

I’ve come to find that niacinamide is extremely effective for my acne, and it’s one of the top ingredients in this.

While it’s a miracle worker on my skin, I don’t think this is the best kind of product for cystic acne. When I get my occasional deep red painful spots, this doesn’t do much. It definitely isn’t enough hydration if you’ve got dry skin, or live in dry climates. But in winter I just add on another face oil (I recommend The Ordinary’s Squalane).

The price isn’t great if you’re anywhere outside of France. But there are ways to get them on discount if you live elsewhere, just takes a bit more effort. With twice daily use, it lasts me about 3 months. Double that if only used once a day.

I’ve tried many other all-over face products with niacinamide as a top ingredient but nothing is quite as effective as the effaclar duo. I will continue to repurchase til the end of time.

Cleansers -La Roche-Posay -Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser

on 3/20/2019 9:00:00 AM


I tried this one after many months of using CeraVe Hydrating cleanser. I love both cleansers. Like CeraVe, this one will probably not remove tenacious makeup (light makeup it does remove OK) but what you can do is use it after a micellar water or an oil to remove remaining residue and treat your skin. It is very gentle. If I had to choose, I prefer the CeraVe because this one stings your eyes *slightly* while the CeraVe does not at all, but I really find them pretty interchangeable. Buy whichever one is on sale.

Treatments (Face) -La Roche-Posay -CICAPLAST BAUME B5 - Multi-Purpose/Soothing Repairing Balm

on 3/20/2019 8:53:00 AM


I absolutely love this cream. It saved my neck when irritated from tretinoin and helped me tolerate it in the winter. I love to use this at night in the winter. It does make your skin a bit white when you first apply it. I have repurchased it and definitely will again. It is a bit pricey so I recommend cutting open the package to get every bit out and keep an eye out for it in duty-free at the airport (sometimes cheaper there).

Nothing is a cure for redness from rosacea, but I do think this can help.

BB Cream -La Roche-Posay -Uvidea XL BB Cream SPF 50

on 3/16/2019 3:38:00 AM


A sheer neutral toned light cream that dries so fast it streaks if you try to apply too wide an area. Its best applied quickly in sections. I found my fingers applied just fine. Evens out skin tone with a light coverage, does not highlight pores or sink into lines. But does not provide any blurring effect and made it look super shiny, and got worse as the day wore on. Shiny finishes highlights textured skin in my opinion, I prefer a soft velvet blurring finish. Has a tacky and tight feel - I don't think it was moisturizing enough for my normal skin. Itches my face and backs of hands like crazy. I'm surprised this is formulated for sensitive skin.

Shade No. 01 would probably suit most fair to light skins with a neutral beige to slightly peachy beige and an ashy undertone. Shade No. 02 I think would suit light to light-medium skin with a brighter golden to slightly olive undertone. The lighter 01 was to dark and ashy dull toned on my very fair skin with golden undertone. The darker 02 was far too dark on me but the undertone matched. I'm around NC5 - 10 in MAC terms. Currently using Tarte Face Tape in 8S Porcelain Sand - very fair skin with yellow undertones.
