La Roche Posay EFFACLAR DUO (+) Corrective care review/recenzija

IMG_5446x

Hello everyone! I wanted this product for such a long time. I’m sure you heard at least once for this product, it is really popular. It took me ages to try it just because it is really hard to get hold of it in Bosnia, but I found it. Also La Roche Posay as a brand is pretty expensive here, nothing weird, usually all brands are so much more expensive here than in rest of the world. Story of my life! However I finally got it and I’m going to share my experience with it!

Pozdrav svima!
Ovaj proizvod sam željela mnogo vremena. U Bosni ga je poprilično teško naći, a i cijena nije nešto što mi se sviđa. La Roche Posay proizvodi su dosta skupi za mene, jer iskreno i ne volim puno trošiti na proizvode za koje ne znam da li će mi odgovarati. Sigurno ste već čuli za ovaj proizvod, vrlo je popularan i mnogo ga ljudi voli!

So I’m sure you know that this line from La Roche Posay is for acne prone skin. It works for oily or normal skin. I have combination skin, my T zone is extremely oily and that is where I usually have break outs. The rest of my face is normal skin and I don’t usually get break outs there. Packing is really simple, white tube. It’s really hygienic which I love. You get 40 ml of product.

Ova linija iz La Roche Posay-a je namjenjena nečistoj koži sa mnogo akni. Ja imam kombinovanu kožu sa vrlo masnom T zonom, a ostatak lica je normalna koža. Najčešće dobijam akne na T zoni i bradi, na statku lica gotovo nikada. Pakovanje ove kreme je vrlo jednostavno, bijela tuba koja je higijenska. Dobijete 40 ml proizvoda.

So I use this in my morning and night time routine. I have to say that before I started using this one my skin was in the worst state ever. I don’t really know what was wrong, but I had break outs everywhere legit. As I said I don’t really get breakouts on my cheeks, but I had some there even. My chin and forehead were terrible, I never had that many break outs even in my teenage years. But I heard so many good things about this product, people legit said that it is magical.

Koristim ovaj proizvod 2 puta dnevno, ujutro i navečer. Prije nego sam krenula koristiti ovaj proizvod moja koža je bila u najgorem stanju ikada, imala sam akne po gotovo čitavom licu. Skoro nikada ne dobijam akne na obrazima, ali tada sam ih imala bukvalno svuda. To mi se nije dešavalo ni u tinejđerskim godinama.

The texture is really simple, white cream that blends really easily in skin. Also this product has really soft scent, you almost can’t even feel it. It is pleasant in my opinion. I feel like this works as a great moisturizer for summer time, it is moisturizing but not heavy. In winter time I feel like you would need to add richer cream on top, just because during winter skin can get super dry. This one works wonderful under the makeup, it is really nice for that.

Tektura je vrlo lagana, bijela krema koja se brzo upija u kožu. Krema je vrlo laganog mirisa koji je gotovo neprimjetan. Mislim da bi ova krema bila dobra za ljeto jer je hidratantna, ali nije teška. Za zimske dane mislim da bi je trebalo kombinovati sa nekom bogatijom kremom, jer tokom zime koža je vrlo suha. Ova krema je idealna ispod šminke, ponaša se poput prajmera.

I didn’t notice massive difference after one week use, it really didn’t do much. After 4 weeks you can notice that some scars are smaller and not as red, but nothing amazing. I just feel like it doesn’t really help with spots. I have been using this one for 11 weeks now and my skin doesn’t really look better. I’m sad to say that this one didn’t work for me. I still get spots on my chin usually. I still have a lot of scars all over my face and I just feel like it doesn’t help that much with healing process. My T zone is still really oily, even though they promised that after 4 weeks texture and oillyness will be improved. I personally don’t see that at all. I will update you guys when I use this one up, but honestly I don’t recommend this product. It is my biggest disappointment ever when it comes to skin care, it is really expensive and it is not worth the money.

Nisam primjetila nikakvu razliku nakon jedne sedmice korištenja. Nakon 4 sedmice bile su vrlo male promjene, neki ožiljci na čelu su bili manji i crvenilo je bilo manje. Ali razlika stvarno nije bila velika, baš sam morala dosta posmatrati da bih bilo šta primjetila. Koristim ovu kremu već oko 11 sedmica i iskreno, razlike gotovo i nema. Crvenilo je i dalje tu, masnoća kože nije poboljšana iako to obečaju nakon samo 4 sedmice korištenja. I dalje dobijam akne, iako bi trebalo biti regulisano ovom kremom. Ožiljci su i dalje tu, mislim da nije ubrzan proces zacjeljivanja. Iskreno vrlo sam nazočarana ovim proizvodom, osim što je skup, vrlo je popularan, ali nažalost ne funkcioniše na mojoj koži.

Bare in mind that everyone skin is different. Something that doesn’t work for me might work for you. This is very popular and well loved product so I’m sure it works for a lot of people. I’m sad that it doesn’t work for me and honestly I don’t really know what is next product that I should try.

Naravno svi imamo drugačiju kožu, što znači da ovaj proizvod može odgovarati vama. Veoma je popularan i funkcioniše za mnogo ljudi. Na žalost za mene nije nešto što bih ponovo kupila, i iskreno ne znam šta više da probam da bih očistila kožu.

That’s everything from me today. I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know did you try EFFACLAR duo (+) or any product from this line? Do you have any recommendation for products that are good for spots and acne scars. Thank you for reading. Have a nice day! xx

  1. Aww no. I hate when you pay so much of money for skincare and the product doesn’t really perform well. Hope you find something better soon

  2. I’m mostly disappointed because I thought this will help my skin and clear it out. I hate having spotty skin, it makes me insecure. But hopefully I’ll clear it up soon. xx

  4. It is! Especially when products are advertised so well yet they don’t help. I hope you find something that works for you xx

  5. I’ve heard so much about their products, I was considering giving this a try but I think I’m going to rethink that now, great review and photos! Xx

  6. I have never tried the brand before but it is one of those that I kind of just see everywhere. It is so frustrating when a product does not work for you. I remember during my severe acne stages, constantly being disappointed because brands would say oh – if you use our whole regime together your skin will clear up. At the very least, it is one product down and one step closer to finding a more suitable one. This was a great review though and very in-depth. xx

  7. I never try their product since they are so expensive. It is sad that they don’t work for you. To think positively, at least it didn’t make you worse. I think use product mainly for calming and hydrating can help.

  8. I was super disappointed just because they advertise it so heavy. I think that clearing out the skin is such a long process and it is indeed really frustrating. Hopefully I’ll find some life changing products for my skin soon. Thank you for the comment. xx

  9. I thought it can help too since this brand is really popular and looks so professional. But don’t worry too much. At least you know that this doesn’t work for your skin. Your skin probably think they should help you save money 🙂

  10. Ah its a shame it didn’t work out for you. Especially considering the price point of La Roche Posay…

  11. I’m so sorry the product didn’t work for you. It’s so annoying when you are expecting something from a product and it does nothing of what is promised, especially when it’s expensive. That brand is a very expensive one here too, my mother lived in Germany for a few years and wore La Roche Posay everything, then she moved here and had to change to something cheaper lol xx

  12. It was indeed annoying, I saved up for 3 months to get it and it was huge disappointment. I understand totally, I could never have whole routine of their products because I would go broke for sure. Mostly skin care is pretty expensive here, I’m always so surprised when people on internet talk about Garnier and Loreal being “affordable”, even those are pricey here. xx
