I have been on the quest for clear skin for the past year and I have been trying out so many different products and lifestyle changes to see what works for my skin. While I have managed to find the perfect combination of products to keep my acne clear, I still struggle with whiteheads and blackheads. I have had a big issue with these for years now. But never found a product especially to help get rid of them. The La Roche Posay Effaclar K+ has been a great addition to my skincare routine.
The La Roche Posay Effaclar K+ is a daily treatment especially for mattifying and correcting combination skin to prevent sebum oxidisation and non-inflammatory breakouts. This aims to transform the skins surface, leaving it feeling smoother, softer and better protected. It has vitamin E in it as well as Salicylic Acid to help exfoliate the skin to reveal the healthy new skin underneath. It can be used as a daily moisturiser in the morning and evening to the whole face, avoiding the eye area and is a great base for makeup, I prefer to use this as part of my evening routine.
I have been using this for almost a month now and I have been really enjoying the results I have been seeing. My whiteheads have have been a big issue for me on my skin and my blackheads on my nose have annoyed me more than anything for years now because I never found a product that would help keep them away. I don't apply this to my whole face, only to the areas which I want to see results. Although as it does have a mattifying effect to the skin it would be perfect to use in the morning and as a base for makeup as it wouldn't negatively effect the way you would apply your foundation or how it sits on the skin throughout the day.
My whiteheads and blackheads have minimised dramatically without drying out the skin. On my chin in particular I had so many whiteheads and I have finally got clear skin on my chin - hooray! I had a slight reaction to something new I started using and I got tiny white bumps on my cheeks, I used this for a few evenings on the area and within three days my skin was completely clear again and each day I saw a reduction! My blackheads on my nose have almost completely disappeared in many areas only with a few small patches left but with continued use of the Effaclar K+ I know my nose will be clear of blackheads in no time!
If you are ever struggling with your skin, especially with blemishes and break outs, I can't recommend La Roche Posay enough. The products from the brand have made a massive improvement to my skin and the Effaclar K+ has been a product sent from heaven to get rid of my whiteheads and blackheads without drying out my skin and keeping my skin mattifiyed.
The La Roche Posay Effaclar K+ retails for £14.90 but it is on offer for £12.65 is available at Escentual - link.
